Allow Your Wedding Dress to Bring Joy Again - Brides Against Breast Cancer


David's Bridal Strapless Gown

Would you like to put your wedding gown, veil, accessories and jewelry to good use?
How about donating them to Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation? This organization takes all the donated bridal gowns and items and puts on large selling events through out the United States.

The funds are then put to good use assisting men and women who are losing their battle with cancer with wishes.

The donation process is very easy, I just printed the application, filled it out, boxed my gown for shipping, ship it and in a few weeks received tax receipt via email. They do ask that you pay for the cleaning...it's only $40.

Toby and Mr. Bangles


Toby wearing his cone and playing with Mr. Bangles

We took Toby for his follow up, on Wednesday. The doctor decided that he needed a cone to stop him from chewing on his bandage.

Toby was so good that we decided to buy him a new toy. Meet Mr. Bangles! The way Toby has been chewing on him I'm not sure Mr. Bangles is going to be with us for long.

Calvary Chapel Spring Valley - Online Live Service

I truly needed to attend Wednesday service today but we didn't get home till 6PM. Thank you Calvary Chapel for offering online live church service.

I was feeling down about Toby's condition. He came home with a "cone" to keep him from chewing on his bandages. The doctor also prescribed a seditive.

My injections and IV drips start next week so I really need to listen to some good worship.

Thank you Heavenly Father ~ I will turn my life over to you and follow your Word. Amen!

Consider Contributing to Your Local Food Bank

There's so much need out there and it can be overwhelming to think of ways that one person can help. But, here's one way that you and your family can address hunger. Consider next time you're doing your grocery shopping you purchase a few cans of food to donate to your local food bank.

In our neighborhood, Country Cafe, a family-style restaurant, has a box for their diners to leave food donations. Our church, Calvary Chapel Spring Valley, has recently started a food bank, to address many of the members' need.

A food drive would be a great summer project for bored teens, youth groups and families.
