Sometimes it amazes me how much my daughters show distinct traits of our  ancestors.  The genes from the American Indian really stands out in them at times.  It is especially evident in Rebecca, the oldest daughter.   It doesn't show up in me at all, but if you saw a picture of my great grandmother, you would see it plainly.  My guess is, this is where Rebecca gets it.  Who knows.  It would be an interesting research, I know.  Maybe we will do this someday.  Rebecca has a blog if you would like to visit her.  I have trouble linking to it, but you can find her at  You will enjoy a post where she actually tells of her heritage and her roots.  Her blog was inspired from Psalm 16:6 "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage."

Fwd: Sneak Peek

Every year we try t get a family picture done.  It has been a tradition for maaaannnnnnyyyyyy years.  We have always tried to give one to each family in the church.  I just know that every year they're anxiously awaiting the "Moore's Christmas Photo"!  Just so they can throw it in trash can, I mean, put it on fridge!

A lot of families do this I know, and if your family is of any size, then you know how difficult getting a family pic can be.  We used to think it was hard when we only had 4 girls!  Wow!  If we had only known!  Now quadruple that!  

In this picture the kids just automatically fell down on the ground!  Love their hearts; they're so used to having pictures taken.  The son- in- laws, though, they're a different story.  I won't even go there.  Just let me say that they act like they can't wait to get the photo shoot over with!  The word "act" is the keyword here!  I think they actually enjoy it!  I know they enjoy seei g themselves!  JK!!  Well, not really!  I can say these things on here, cause none of them follow!  Ha ha!  I love my SILS!

This picture was taken at the 50 anniversary service of Sugar Camp Baptist Church in Booneville, Ky., where my father- in-law ( pictured in center) pastored for 41 years.  Last year we had the picture taken in front of the church where I grew up, and this year where my husband grew up.  This is very special to us.  Anyway, this is a sneak peek of Christmas pic 2011.

Our baby granddaughter, Eden Elizabeth, (Edi B, for short), turned 3 years old this week.  She is such a cutie I just had to share this birthday picture of her!

Don't you agree?!

"I Was Glad"

The psalmist, David, said in Psalm 122:1, "I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord".  It makes me glad to go to church too!  In fact, it is one if my favorite places to go! I'm really glad that I'm glad to go to church three plus times a week!  I especially like to go to Tabernacle Baptist Church, in Nicholasville, Kentucky where my husband is pastor.

This week I was visiting my mom and while driving around, saw some of the places where as a child, my family and I attended.  

The church buildings where I attend church today, are very different from those I attended when I was growing up in Eastern Ky.  Below is a picture of the building where the church I attended began as a mission church.  I am thankful for this building, and I am thankful for the man of God who obeyed the call of God and came to start this church. I don't know where my family would be today if he had not.  I'm thankful, and I'm glad!

Mom n Me

This past week, I visited mom and took the opportunity to get a picture made with her .  I had recently realized that I didn't have one.  Now isn't that awful? Sometimes we tend to forget to  capture and preserve the most precious images.    I knew there was too many technical devices that could capture a memory to let this opportunity pass by, so we got this picture !  I'm glad we did!  

For fun, I did a little quiz for Facebook friends having them guess which one was the mother and which one was the daughter.  It seems like the one with the gray hair should be the mom doesn't it?  Don't answer that!  I guess I could have asked which one colors and which one doesn't!  Well, if I had of asked that question, the answer would have been neither!  FYI, my mom doesn't dye her hair!  She doesn't have to!  She is seventy and does not have hardly, if any, gray hair!  What happened to me?  Idk!  I guess I took after my dad!  Anyway, here's Mom and me!  I'm thankful for her!  More than I could ever say!
