I have money in a bank account that is being held because of eBay. Never, in 11 years as an eBay seller, have I experienced anything like this.
Thanks, eBay, for protecting your buyers so well and neglecting your sellers so completely. Maybe you should start selling your own stuff and just do away with outside sellers. Then the money would be yours to hold and you wouldn't be messing with my livelihood!
My pool turned green overnight and I can't for the life of me get it clear again. It's looks like the ocean. Ick.
There are others weird things I could list, but I'll spare you.
Expect turmoil when you pray and study the Bible.
Hang in there.
And keep doing it anyway.
PS~If you have commented on any of my Facebook posts regarding The Grace Card DVD giveaway, consider yourself entered in the giveaway that ends just before midnight tonight!
The Grace Card came out on DVD this week and I watched it last night.
Let me just say that I rarely get emotional over movies. I don't take tissues to the theater and I don't worry about my mascara running during chick flicks. But last night? Well....I admit it.
I teared up. More than once.
The Grace Card takes place in Memphis, Tennessee. The main focus of the story is racial discord and, of course, grace. Mac, the main character, is a white police officer who has become angry and bitter due to his life experiences. His new partner is Sam, a black preacher who moonlights as a newly promoted police sergeant. Both men struggle with the racial tension between them until life gives them both a chance to play the grace card.
You may not know this, but I basically grew up in Memphis. We moved to Memphis just after my 11th birthday. I went to junior high and high school in Memphis. I met my husband, a lifelong Memphian, there. Five of my six children were born in Memphis. We left Memphis in 1998, but didn't go far. I was born somewhere else, but when I think hometown, I think Memphis.
My connections to the city made this movie feel real. I saw places I've visited and I saw the racial division I have always known. The movie felt genuine. Even the accents were right! Don't you hate it when a movie is filled with those fake southern accents?? You know, when everyone sounds like Scarlett O'Hara or that woman on that television show, The Closer? What's her name? Kevin Bacon's wife....
I hate that!
I will definitely watch The Grace Card again. Thanks to the Propeller Group, I have my very own DVD that I can watch as many times as I desire. AND... they were kind enough to supply a DVD for me to giveaway!

What a great way to meet others living with CHD or to learn more about how Congenital Heart Disease affects different people. Chances are, every person reading this knows someone with CHD. About 1 in every 100 babies are born with some type of CHD and many do not live to see their first birthday.
If you are visiting from the blog hop.....welcome! I have linked you to this post because our family has a 'two-fer' heart story. That's right....two kids with complex Congenital Heart Disease! Below you will find a few direct links to posts about both of my boys here on my blog. You may have noticed that there is a tab on my blog header for our CHD story. It's still blank. Sorry! I keep telling myself to write that out and well... I just haven't. I will, though.
In the meantime, please check out these posts about my two boys, both with variations of complex TGA and hypoplasia:
