Typical California Jolt!   8 comments


So, I am sitting down in my room reading some blogs before I hit the sack and all of a sudden I feel a jolt and the house shakes.  Oh my word we just had an…


Did I mention that I am in Southern California and you never know when an earthquake will hit!  Just to make sure it was an earthquake and not something seriously wrong with the house’s foundation,  I went to one of my favorite sites to find out about earthquakes which is almost instant in their reporting. I wanted to find out where it was centered and what the magnitude was.  Here is their report…

A minor earthquake occurred at 9:28:49 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, March 26, 2008.
The magnitude 3.1 event occurred 3 km (2 miles) NE of Newport Beach, CA.
The hypocentral depth is 8 km ( 5 miles).

Yeah, that felt like a 3.  I am just really glad it wasn’t a really big one! Boy do they get your heart racing for a second though!  I guess it’s now safe to go to bed!

Happy Birthday Camryn!   2 comments


We love you Camryn! Happy Birthday from Aunt Lana and Uncle Steve!

Hold On to Jesus
Erin O’Donnell

You’re a little piece of heaven
You’re a golden ray of light
And I wish I could protect you
From the worries of this life
But if there’s one thing I could tell you
It’s no matter what you do
Hold to Jesus
He’s holding on to you

The world will try to tell you
That might is more than right
That beauty’s on the outside
And being good’s a losing fight
But remember what I’ve told you
Because the world will make you choose
Hold to Jesus
He’s holding on to you

Hold on to Jesus
Cling to His love
Rest deep in His mercy
Whenever things get rough
Don’t lose sight of His goodness
And don’t ever doubt this truth
That when you hold on to Jesus
He’s holding on to you

Hear me dear Jesus
Rock this little one to sleep
Keep her close when she’s scared
And give her grace when she is weak
I know she’ll stumble
But I know she’ll make it through
If you hold to her just like
You said You’d do
Hold her Jesus
And she’ll hold on tight to You
