I guess I'm addicted!

I'm in California at the moment and it has only been a couple of days, and yes...I've had In-N-Out Burger twice already. But to be honest, I think Emilio, my husband, is more addicted than I am--just one look at his face and it tells it all!

We had a great time and if Emilio's face didn't convince you of how good the food is, just look at Mike my step dad (below). He devoured the fries like there was no tomorrow. I think my mom (in the last photo) and I were the only normal ones yesterday. :-)

If you ever plan a trip to California you've got to try their food, but if this life doesn't permit it, that's okay because we will feast forever in heaven--truly I can't wait! In-N-Out will have nothing on God's bread! I can't wait to behold our wonderful Savior face to face.

I will leave tomorrow to go back to Texas. Departing will be hard for several reasons. First I have to leave my mom (Marlene) and step dad behind. I love them dearly and going home is always hard. I cry. But in Heaven there will be no more goodbyes and no more tears. Thank God they both are Christians--which gives me great comfort.

Second, as I depart back to Texas, I am stopping to visit my grandmother Theresa (I call her "Memo"). She is in a care facility. She refuses to eat and is dwindling quickly. I am going to share the Gospel with her one more time and tell her how much I love her. I pray she hears and that God will open her ears. It just eats me alive knowing that she is not a believer.

Oh Trish that was so sweet..and so sad. I will pray w/ you for your grandmother. This brought tears to my eyes. Please also pray for my Daddy. I have shared with him some throughout the years, but not as boldly as I desire. May Father give her ears to hear and a heart that trusts the Savior!!!

Thanks for your prayers Betty and Christina, for my Memo. It really means a lot. I shared with her yesterday and she was coherent enough to listen--which I am thankful for. I pray that your (Betty) dad will come to know the Lord. Thank you ladies for reading my blog!

It's so weird that we live in the same country and the restaurants are SOO DIFFERENT! I commented last time about the Waffle House (which I love when I go down south).

We have like... McDonald's, Subway, Burger King, etc. Haha, who doesn't have those?

Anyway, I will pray for your grandma.
