Pastor Alfred from the Dream Center was here this morning and picked up 500 hats. He was totally floored and would like to thank all of you from Bev's Charity Challenge who have helped. He will send some pictures, which I will post. His ministry is spreading almost all over Utah. I think, that was a hint that he would like to have hats again next year - I will start making them again in January. As well as hats and scarves for the homeless and all the other things.

Right now I need to concentrate to get some more hats and scarves done for next weeks final delivery for this year. Then on to Special Olympic Scarves - - better get busy

Merry CHRISTmas

Let Me be one of the first to wish You a very Merry Christmas and
May you enjoy the Blessings of the season.
As you well know, we are getting closer to my birthday. Every year there is A celebration in my honor and I think that this year the celebration will be Repeated.

During this time there are many people shopping for gifts, there are many
Radio announcements, TV commercials, and in every part of the world everyone
Is talking that my birthday is getting closer and closer.

It is really very nice to know, that at least once a year, some people think
Of me.

As you know, the celebration of my birthday began many years ago.

At first people seemed to understand and be thankful of all that I did for
Them, but in these times, no one seems to know the reason for the

Family and friends get together and have a lot of fun, but they don't know
The meaning of the celebration. I remember that last Year there was a great feast in my honor. The dinner table was full of Delicious foods, pastries, fruits, assorted nuts and
Chocolates. The decorations were exquisite and there were many, many
Beautifully wrapped gifts.

But, do you want to know something? I wasn't invited.

I was the guest of honor and they didn't remember to send me an invitation.

The party was for me, but when that great day came, I was left outside, they
Closed the door in my face .. And I wanted to be With them and share their table.

In truth, that didn't surprise me because in the last few years all close Their doors to me. Since I wasn't invited, I decided to Enter the party without making any noise. I went in and stood in a corner.

They were all drinking; there were some who were drunk and telling jokes and
Laughing at everything. They were having a grand time.

To top it all, this big fat man all dressed in red wearing a long white Beard entered the room yelling Ho-Ho-Ho! He seemed drunk. He sat on the Sofa and all the children ran to him, saying: "Santa Claus, Santa Claus" as If the party were in his honor!

At midnight all the people began to hug each other; I extended my arms
Waiting for someone to hug me and do you know no-one hugged me.

Suddenly they all began to share gifts. They opened them one by one with
Great expectation. When all had been opened, I looked to see if, maybe,
There was one for me. What would you feel if on your birthday everybody
Shared gifts and you did not get one?

I then understood that I was unwanted at that party and quietly left.

Every year it gets worse. People only remember the gifts, the parties, to
Eat and drink, and nobody remembers me.

I would like this Christmas that you allow me to enter into your life.

I would like that you recognize the fact that almost two thousand years ago
I came to this world to give my life for you, on the Cross, to save you.

Today, I only want that you believe this with all your heart.

I want to share something with you. As many didn't invite me to their party,
I will have my own celebration, a grandiose party That no one has ever imagined, a spectacular party. I'm still making the Final arrangements..

Today I am sending out many invitations and there is an invitation for you.
I want to know if you wish to attend and I will make a reservation for you
And write your name with golden letters in my great guest book.

Only those on the guest list will be invited to the party.

Those who don't answer the invite, will be left outside. Be prepared because
When all is ready you will be part of my great Party.

See you soon. I Love you!


Share this message with your loved ones, before Christmas.

Again, it's been a while. I've been busy making hats and scarves for the homeless and other things. I delivered the first 100 sets to Helen Rollings. She is a friend of Pamela Atkinson, a homeless advocate. I admire that woman immensely. Like always, after a delivery I am on an emotional high. I am working now on my 2nd delivery, which will be shortly before Christmas. I would like to thank the girls in Bev's Charity Challenge to help out with hats and scarves. It is greatly appreciated.

I will try to update here more often, but I can't promise.

It's been a while

It has been a while, since I updated. Where has the time gone?

In the meantime, we have changed churches. Gone from the Nazarenes to the Sonrise Baptist. We love it there. Gary's grandkids go there and even so we don't have contact with them, we would like to show them that we are there, should they want to take up contact again. Their mother passed away last week and in a way that is a blessing. She was in the last stages of cancer and was only a sceleton with skin, just a shadow of her former self.

It was Gary's 71st birthday yesterday. Last year in May it didn't look like he would make it to "70" I am asking the Lord every morning for one more day with my husband. One day at a time.

We bought a 46" LCD HD flat screen TV and it was delivered on Monday. We set it up yesterday. It is a VIZIO and I just love it. I can't wait for basketball season to start again - - WOW

Stay tuned for updates.
