Time To PARTY!!!!!

For all of you who are visiting me for the first time .... this is who I am:

First and foremost I am a child of the King and my life is dedicated to The One who saves me on a daily basis.

Next in my heart is my WONDERFUL man. He is my very own Prince Charming and my best friend! I love him with all of my heart and Thank God for him daily.

And then, there are my children.

Two handsome men that The Lord gave to me through my marriage. They are strong men with so much of their dad in them they are IMPOSSIBLE not to love!

Two beautiful little ladies that the Lord gifted us through the miracle of adoption. They are my heart and soul and life without them would be no life at all! They are sweet, loving and precious and ... oh, I could go on and on...

And then there is my fRamily ... nope, it's not a typo ... these are the friends that I love like family and the family that I would choose as friends. They are the ones that have seen us through it all! The good, the bad and the ugly. And at the end of the day, they are the ones who will ALWAYS come back for more!

There are also a few things that I am passionate about. I love music - almost every kind, but the songs that rock my world are the ones that glorify my Lord. I love a good movie - old ones (Roman Holiday) as well as not so old (You've Got Mail), all the way to the "new classics" (Passion of The Christ, Facing The Giants, and of course, Finding Nemo!!). Maybe they are only "classics" in my own little mind, but they are STAPLES here in our world!!! I am also passionate about finding a cure for Breast Cancer, which is why I do this every year:

Because EVERYONE deserves a lifetime. My BFF Paula didn't get hers, it is my personal goal to make sure the two sweet angels she left behind get theirs!

So, in a (not so small) nutshell that is me. Pretty much I am just a girl who has been blessed with a wonderful life and started a blog to share pictures of that life with the ones she loves. In the course of it all I have made some pretty cool bloggy buddies - AKA "the Siestas" - and am hoping to make some more!

Feel free to come back any time. I do not promise that it will always be exciting, but I do promise that it will ALWAYS be straight from my heart!!!!!

Let me know ya stopped by and I will be sure to return the favor!!!

Blog at ya later,
Becky Jo

PS - they are giving away a TON of great prizes at blog party headquarters - my personal faves are 17, 24, 45, 58, 67, 101 & 123!!!!

Becky Jo~

I really, really enjoyed reading your party post.

"Framily" -- love, love that term.

I had a dear friend lose her battle with breast cancer as well. You have inspired me to take part in some way. May the Lord reveal that in His time as to what I may do.

I will surely be back to visit as I see inklings of a Kindred Spirit in you.

Have a blessed day.

Brandie said...
