Too cute.

If I knew you were coming I would bake a cake. This song makes me think of the times we would visit my gramma Murdock in the nursing home and her little roommate would always say "if I had know'ed you was a coming I'd've baked a cake" as soon as you would walk in the door. Karen

Leaning On The Everlasting Arms - Iris Dement - When I taught Bible Study in the nursing home, I was going though a personal trial (I never told my little ladies of my trial). One of my ladies, Clara Mimms, would always look at me and say, "You just have to lean on His everlasting arms." I thought she was loosing it. Then when I was talking to my pastors wife about my struggle, she said, "Dana, you just need to lean on Him." It was then I realized God had been talking through Miss Mimms.

Cajun Visits - I remember when I worked for the school the Hispanic kids would want to listen to their music. One time I put on some Cajun music and they were really getting into it and all the sudden they realized they didn't realize they didn't understand what was being said. They didn't like it after that, thus we only listened to music we all understood after that. LOL!
