The changes

Hello everyone, I know it's been a while but a lot has been happening in my life. I woke up on day and realized that if I didn't change some things in my life, I would probably die, very soon. I started that day on a journey. This journey will be a long one, I didn't get where I was over night and I've learned I can't reach where I'm going over night, but if I stay focused on the goal, it will come through the Lords help. I can and have made life changes that are forever! I have now lost 64 pounds and I'm able to do things like hiking and things that I wasn't able to do before. I am going for at least another 50. God is with me, I will conquer this weight issue and maintain a healthy weight in the end, Thank You Lord, Family & friends for support though this. God is good

Something to think about,

A picture began circulating in November. It should be 'The Picture of the Year,' or perhaps, 'Picture of the Decade.' It won't be. In fact,unless you obtained a copy of the US paper which published it, you probably
Would never have seen it.

The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by surgeon named Joseph Bruner.

The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother's womb. Little Samuel's mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr Bruner's remarkable Surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt Univ Med Ctr in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb.

During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed Hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger. Dr Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.

The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity The editors titled the picture, 'Hand of Hope.' The text explaining the picture begins, 'The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother's uterus to grasp the finger of Dr Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life.'

Little Samuel's mother said they 'wept for days' when they saw the picture. She said, 'The photo reminds us pregnancy isn't about disability or an illness, it's about a little person.'Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful.

Now see the actual picture, and it is awesome.

and now

The Hopper Weekend in Pictures

Saturday, March 7, 2009

Cherish certainly was the center of attention, if she wasn't fighting with my uncle Harold about the dogs (he told her hey are cats), she was sitting on my uncle James.:0) Too funny. This is a clip of her chasing uncle James with a scary snake.

My Aunt Karen sends the best e-mails! to funny

As a young minister in Tennessee , I was asked by a funeral director
To hold a grave-side service for a homeless man, who had no family or
Friends. The funeral was to be held at a new cemetery way back in the
Country, and this man would be the first to be buried there.
I was not familiar with the backwoods area, and I soon became
Lost. Being a typical man, I did not stop to ask for directions. I
Finally arrived an hour late.

I saw the backhoe and the open grave, but the hearse was nowhere
In sight. The digging crew was eating lunch. I apologized to the
Workers for my tardiness, and I stepped to the side of the open grave.
There I saw the vault lid already in place. I assured the workers I
Would not hold them up for long, as I told them that this was the
Proper thing to do.

The workers gathered around the grave and stood silently, as I
Began to pour out my heart and soul. As I preached about 'looking
Forward to a brighter tomorrow and the glory that is to come,'

The workers began to say 'Amen,' 'Praise the Lord,' and 'Glory!'
The fervor of these men truly inspired me. So, I preached and I
Preached like I had never preached before, all the way from Genesis to

I finally closed the lengthy service with a prayer, thanked the men,
And walked to my car. As I was opening the door and taking off my
Coat, I heard one of the workers say to another, 'I ain't NEVER seen nothin'
Like that before, and I've been puttin' in septic tanks for thirty years!'

More smiles all around!

Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?


Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Why do they sterilize the needle for
lethal injections?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?


If flying is so safe,
why do they call the airport the terminal?

I got this as part of an e-mail today, and thought I'd share it.(food for thought)lol

Spread the Stupidity

Only in America
do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in America people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

Only in America banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

Only in
America we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

Only in we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

Only in America they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

Through The Storm

Thank You, friends
Who've walked with me
And helped me face the storm
I've felt every prayer prayed for strength
And that's why I am here
Lord, show me someone
whose storm will soon arrive
And let me walk with them
And pray them through their storm
