The most important thing about me is that it's by God's grace and his constant discipline I'm where I am in my Christian walk. I can claim nothing good of myself... because I know that left to myself, I would walk the way of the world, or become a self-centered pharisee (of the worst kind). God keeps reminding me of who I was before He saved me and that helps me keep the right perspective. I live in Missouri, but was born and raised in Texas. My husband and I have seven grown children. My husband went to be with our Lord on Feb. 18th, 2014. With the help of God, our children, grandchildren, family and friends, I'm adjusting to being a widow. God's tender care has been my lifeline.
I love searching for family and greatly appreciate all those whose hard work has helped myself, and others locate our families.
I agree with my friend, Carolyn (#47303208), who said:
"My pictures are your pictures. Feel free to beg, borrow, steal with no intent to return. I take pictures of headstones out of kindness ... not for my ego, or for the "numbers."
PET PEEVE: Find A Grave "number" collectors who have no interest in genealogy or family links and refuse to transfer to relatives unless they meet so-called "findagrave guidelines". Shame on you!"
Well said, Carolyn!
I've just started taking photos of headstones for others and am willing to help anyone whose relative is buried in my area - Stella, McDonald County, Missouri - (Extreme Southwest part of Missouri)
