Harder to be won...


As a speech teacher I was always on the look out for verse that were about our words. Today in my devotions I found a great one. I had to really think about it. Not because it was hard to understand, on contrary it was a very simple verse. I had to think about it because I was searching my heart to see if I had fallen prey to this. Proverbs 18:19a "A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city" Have I offended someone lately?? Am I careful what I say to other people? Do I speak before I think? Do I say things that are better left unsaid? Do I consider other peoples feelings before I vent mine?
What a thought provoking verse. I know that we need to be careful what we say, but if we offend someone by our speech (or actions) they are "harder to be won than a strong city." My speech could turn someone from church, from God, from knowing Jesus as their Savior. Makes me take a closer look to my "conversation" as Paul says. A word meaning more than just what I am saying with my lips. What am I conversing?
I know as a Christian sometimes I practice too much my liberty that comes with being saved. Maybe I should focus more on what other people are seeing. I may not be saying anything "wrong" but should I be saying it.
I think of a joke that people in the south often use. "Bless their heart!" We Northerners tend to just say it like it is, but here in the south they make put downs sound so positive. "She is so ugly, bless her little heart," or "He can't sing at all, bless his heart." As if blessing his heart makes it better. I am guilty of this behavior. Only I haven't started saying bless his heart.
Another thought is that of our opinions. Everyone has an opinion. I love that many people think that their opinions are the only things that matter. Of course many of them would claim "Freedom of Speech." However, I am sure that is not what Jesus taught. I need to be careful about telling people my opinions. My opinions are not the end all. They don't always matter. And sometimes it is better to just keep them to myself. I know I have offended and been offended by opinions.
I am sure we have all been on both ends of this verse. I know I have. What am I doing to change that??
I know that this verse really made me think. It made me reconsider my motives for speech. I hope it has also provoked you to think about your speech and especially your "conversations."

Near Disaster


Tonight I was suddenly thankful for my family and my home! Teddy set the trash in my master bathroom on fire (and tried to sneak out of the bathroom). Thankfully I saw the smoke and got the kids out of the house. I filled a bucket of water threw it and ran while calling 911. I wasn't sure if I got it all out and I thought of all the pictures and things and clothes that I have in the house that would be greatly missed if I were to loose it all. However, I realized while thinking that the things I would really miss the most were standing with no socks on the cold driveway waiting for the fire truck.
I was grateful for our neighbors who kindly took the kids while I surveyed the damage. They gave us some dinner. They were just truly what the Bible says is a good neighbor. I was grateful for cell phones (although Tommy couldn't hear his above the pep band for a while). I am thankful for the kind fireman and woman that came and made sure everything was safe and helped get the smoke out of the house.
I am thankful that the Lord had it in His plan to keep my children and home safe and relatively safe from damage.

Going "home"




Going to Michigan is one of my favorite things and I am always very excited when it gets close to a trip. This time is no exception!! The difference is that I am starting to see it through my kids eyes. For me it was always returning home. For them, it's not home, but it is Nana and Papa and cousins (which they don't have here in Georgia with no relatives nearby). I think in some ways they are more excited. I can't wait to blog about our trip and the kids response. It is really fun to see life through their eyes!

Growing kids!!!!!


Wanted to show how Andy is growing! He is almost the same size as Danenn. Poor little girl!! LOL!!! I need to keep taking these pictures! Eventually though I should have them standing!

Finding my ways!

I am learning the secrets to really saving money. This week was my best trip! I was so excited to put away my 150.00 of groceries and thought of the 100.00 that I would have spent if I hadn't learned the art of couponing!! Can you believe that! 100.00!!! If I hadn't used coupons we would have much less in our fridge and pantry! But now I have 10 boxes of pasta! Boxes and boxes of food and tons of stuff in the freezer!! I am so blessed. God definitely used Stephanie Mcabe to teach others to use their money in wiser ways!
My newest learn is that I can't be getting coupons on the way out the door. I have to get them ready the day before. That way I am not rushing to get them in order. I tend to forget them or say nevermind when I am rushed! I also felt much more in control while at the store when I had them ready the night before! I am so glad to have sites like www.southernsavers.com to help with the match ups! That definitely saves me a lot of time.
If you are trying to get into couponing. Check out that site! Figure out if there is local web site that does grocery store match-ups and keep at it!! I am loving it!!!! Of course sense only my family and a few friends are reading this. I just felt inspired to write down my learning process. Maybe someone will stumble along my blog and this will help them!!!

WHAT????

So I am constantly learning as a parent. What parent isn't? I am learning to be consistent, how to deal with girls verses boys, how to teach my children in a child friendly way, and much more. I am now learning how to deal with sibling fighting! They are so mean to each other. It's amazing that Danenn can get Teddy sooooo upset. And Teddy is so mean sometimes. They are learning to share, to treat each other respect, and so much more and yet... well, lets just say they both can be big bullies!! A while ago I resorted in having them hold hands in "time-out" on the couch. (I then thought...Oh, no I am becoming my mom! I think that's funny! PS I love my mom!!!!) But back to the kids... How do you get them to love each other? I struggle so much because I really desire to have my children be friends. I see some of my friends and what great relationships they have with their sister or brother and I really want that for my children. I am praying that the Lord will help me teach them to love each other. I know that only by His power will this be accomplished! What an amazing task parenting is. I don't know how any one can really do it without God's power!

God's Been Good

Feeling sentimental today! I guess the closer I get to Teddy's birthday the more I remember what a precious gift from God that he is. Oh, I know he is a gift and I know he was given to us for a time from God, but remembering his birth makes me more thankful! For those of you who may not know the whole story it began thirteen weeks into my pregnancy. You see at that time I thought I was only 8 or 9 weeks but wasn't sure, so I went to get an ultra sound of the baby. That is where they told me that there was a good chance my baby would be down syndrome. Of course I was devastated. I cried and prayed and then realized it didn't matter. God was in control, and no matter what He would provide the strength I would need. After a lot of prayer and seeing several specialist. The doctors decided that the baby (who I found out was a boy) was not down syndrome. So I began normal visits and no more extra ultra sounds.
Then sometime in the middle of September my blood pressure started getting really high. My OB out of precaution put me on bed rest and I had to stay home. My due date wasn't until October 23rd. But of course I wasn't discouraged. I was excited to meet Teddy and the changes that would take place. On September 29th I went to the doctor for a regular visit. Surprisingly (of course not really a surprise to God) I saw an actual OB rather than one of the mid-wives that I normally saw. He noticed that I wasn't growing the way I should. My fundal height was actually shrinking. He then noticed that the baby's heart rate was very slow. After monitoring me for a short while he told me that since I was almost 37 weeks (I was 36weeks and 6days), he wanted me to just go ahead on the the hospital. There he assured me they would monitor me that night and induce me the next morning. On the way to the hospital we called all our friends and family to inform them that tomorrow was the big day. We were excited, unaware of the problems that we were about to experience.

When I got there it seemed that they were waiting for me, but I did not think anything of it. I was put in a "holding room" where I was hooked up to monitoring and after only about a half an hour the doctor came in. She was very nice and said that we would need to have an emergency c-section. I will never forget Tommy's response. He looked at her in all sincerity and said, "Are you sure we need a c-section?" He was only trying to protect me, but I could tell by how fast the room was filling with people and the concerned look on her face that this was really an emergency. She explained that Teddy's heart rate was very low and every time my belly contracted (which I didn't know it was doing) his heart rate dropped. So after after what seemed only a few minutes I was rushed into the OR without Tommy. I was put to sleep and at 6:30PM, only thirty minutes after they told me I was going to have a c-section, Teddy was born and I was in the recovery room with no baby. As I came to the nurses around me shut the curtains and whispered around me. I kept asking where Teddy was and the answer was that he was small and had to go the NICU. Tommy was there shortly and we talked for a minute. I was later taken to a room and visited with John and Julie (who had come to bring Tommy food and meet the baby!!) and Pastor and Mrs. Campbell. Still we hadn't seen Teddy and we didn't know what was going on.

Around 11PM they finally called Tommy and said that he could come up to the NICU to see the baby. The Lord worked and Pastor Campbell was able to go with Tommy. Which was a huge blessing, for what he was about to see was worse than we could ever had thought. Teddy was hooked up to several different IVs and he had an oscillator (a respirator that "breaths" 100times a min, it doesn't look like they are breathing...only vi berating), and hooked to that was a special gas called Nitrate. The gas was pumped by the oscillator into the lungs and opened the capillaries. We were then told that sometime during my pregnancy my placenta had stopped working. As Teddy drank in the amniotic fluid, due to the fact he was not being nourished he no longer let any out and by the time of delivery there was no fluid left and Teddy had passed muconium and aspirated. He had pulmonary hypertension, failing kidneys, failing liver, and that was only the beginning. They gave us very little hope. Of course, all I saw was a picture because I was still recovering from surgery. The nurses assured me that if something were to happen before I could go to see him that they could take me there and I would be able to see him...not really assuring! The next morning I was able to get into a wheel chair and see Teddy. He was hugely swollen and only a tiny little thing. He started at 3lbs and 1.7oz, but I am sure by the time I saw him he weighted more because of the fluids he was retaining, due to the Kidney failure. The neonatologist wasn't encouraging. She said that they were not even sure if his Kidney's had fully formed and that there was no way of doing dialysis if they hadn't it really was touch and go. People came to visit us in our room after that and Tommy took many to go see Teddy (one at a time), but I didn't go. I was so scared after what I had seen and I couldn't make myself go back. Later in the evening a couple from our church that had a similar experience came to visit. Lisa held my hand and told me I had to go bond with Teddy. David was there for Tommy and when my parents finally arrived from Michigan they cleared the room so that we could spend some time with them.

On Saturday, I walked to the NICU to see Teddy. There were probably fifteen or twenty people that were there to visit us and Teddy. One of the NICU doctors had come to see Teddy and told us that he was still not doing well. In fact after some questions from us he insinuated that Teddy would not survive. Later, we were told that Teddy's liver enzymes had climbed over 5,000 and they were supposed to be under 100. We were told that if they didn't go down by at least half, Teddy would die. Sunday morning I was told that many people went to the alter during the morning service to pray for Teddy and we found out little later that his enzymes had dropped to under 2,500. God was working, but there was still a long long way to go.
Teddy still hadn't peed. He was still retaining fluid. I left the hospital on Monday night. Thankfully David and Lisa and another couple rented a hotel room across the street from the hospital so that we didn't have to go very far. On Tuesday during a normal change of his diaper (which wasn't even attached at this point) the nurse pressed on his bladder and we saw what we had been praying for a very small amount of urine slipped down the catheter. I cried. Wednesday morning early Tommy was taking the breast milk over to the hospital to be stored for later use (Teddy wasn't eating yet). When he walked into Teddy's area he noticed the oscillator was gone! He had been put on a step down respirator (a normal one)!!! Something the doctor on Saturday had said probably would never happen!!!!! God was using Teddy to prove himself. The week went quickly. We said goodbye to my parents on Saturday and then Saturday night we had another set back. Teddy had developed two phnumothorax's, this is air that is between the lung and rib cage. It collapses the lung and is very painful. They inserted two chest tubes and later added another one.

Slowly they were weening him off the different drugs that he was on. One of which was the morphine and we got to see Teddy's expressions. During this week we got to see his eyes open and watch as he gradually lost the water that he had been retaining. He began looking normal. They told us not to hope to take him home until after Christmas, but I was praying for a miracle. He did develop an intolerance for my milk and had to be put on a special formula.
I know the next events may not be in order, I am trying to remember the details. He was gradually weened off the respirator to a c-pap and finally we were able to hold him! It was such a great moment. We loved holding him and he seemed to respond so well to us holding him. He liked it, too. He began to be the baby that all the nurses wanted to play with. By the end of October we realize he was going to be okay. During this time a couple of the nurses that had been with Teddy during the worst part told us that they did not expect him to live.
He was moved to the step down nursery, eventually weened from the air all together. The last thing that we were working on was feeding. He was still unable to take a full bottle by himself without getting too tired and so he was needing a feeding tube. After many test to make sure there were no other problems, Thanksgiving day 2005 Teddy was able to go home. He still had a feeding tube which we had to give him at night for several weeks, until I was able to work with him until he could take the bottle on his own.

As I sat here and tried to remember all of it, I realized something else. God didn't just show us how great he was, He showed many nurses, doctors, and other people. He used little Teddy's life to prove Himself. I wonder just what he has in store for his life. Something great I hope. Wednesday he turns five, can you believe that five years ago I would never had guessed what I was about to experience. Would I change it. I don't know. I would never want to put him through that again, but I was taught so much about the power of prayer and how great God is. So, no I don't think I would. As the song says, "God's been good, in my life. I feel blessed beyond my wildest dreams when I go to sleep each night. Though I had my share of hard times, I wouldn't trade it them I could. Cause through it all, God's been good."

One Wild Tuesday


So last week we began school here at the "Knight House!" I am sure that in some houses this is an easy thing, but here it's not! The good thing is that Danenn is as interested (if not more than Teddy)! Andy on the other hand is more interested in my attention when I am teaching!! We have been learning to recognize the letters of the alphabet, the days of the weeks, colors (they already pretty much have this down, but it's good to review), of course we start with Bible, and then today I introduced math. Preschool math is very interesting!! We did a worksheet where they had to find the objects that are the same size as the other. Sounds very easy...but...... My problem started when the first picture was of a sand bucket and shovel. Immediately Teddy went from math to playing in the sand box. Then of course we went from sand to Egypt (logically). Then from Egypt to Joseph (our morning Bible story) and then we were somewhere else. Funny thing is I followed him the whole time. I guess Five year old boys have not fully developed the waffle brain that all men have! So, tomorrow we go to the library for story time...or maybe we will be in Africa??? You never know when you are traveling with a five year old, a three year old, and a mother that's sleep deprived!

Andrew James Four Months Old!!

I took Andy for his check up today and found out that my cutie is in the 50% on the growth chart for height and weight. I know this may sound crazy, but I was soooo excited! I can't believe how big he is getting. My other two were never and still are not on the chart (Danenn may be in the 5% now for weight, but not sure). Isn't our God so awsome. I prayed that Andy would be healthy. I prayed that I would be able to go to recovery with him, and not only did all that happen, but God also provided me with a growin healthy little man! I am truely blessed.

Learning the art of coupons

So as I began this journey of couponing I thought it would be an easy journey! It has not been easy and it was very time consuming at the beginning! I am glad however to report that it is much easier now! A few things I have learned that may help someone else...
1. Find a system that works for you...I don't care for the cutting everything out and filing it away system, that is what I tried at first. The problem was that I was spending hours upon hours cutting and clipping for a fourty five minute shopping trip. Fortunatly I found www.southernsavers.com and it has helped me. By filing the coupon booklets (red plum, smart source, and p&g) by Sunday paper date I only need to pull out the book I need and clip the coupon I want...southernsavers does a lot of the leg work for me!! Now for filing for the store I bought a simple coupon filing system ($2 at Ingles) It is an expandable file folder miny size! Labled with the stores I shop and in the back items that I have clipped in the past or find in the blinkies at stores! Saves tons of time in the store!
2. Don't think you will get it the first time!! LOL!! I am laughing because the first time I went to the store looking for the "GREAT DEAL" they were all out. They were out the second, third and even fourth time! Good thing stores do rain checks on sale items!
3. Pull and peel! Pull two of all the coupons you see! You will never know when they will be a great deal!
And last 4. Don't give up! If you can find a system that works for you and keep at it for at least a month you will see it get easier and easier! Keep trying....you can do it!
So there, that's what I have learned to date! I am still plugging away at learning to save my family money. Proverbs 14:1a "Every wise woman buildeth her house"

They like eachother now!!!

I love how Teddy and Andy react to eachother. Andy thinks Teddy is super funny and Teddy just wants to have a conversation with Andy (even though he can't respond...I think he likes to hear himself talk--can't imagine where he get's that!!) Any way the other day Teddy wanted Andy to snuggle him for a min. So, I put Andy in bed with Teddy and couldn't resist getting my camera and shooting a few pics! They were so sweet!!

The Romans Road

Tommy and I have been working on teaching the kids the Romans road. It has been fun to see Teddy memorize the scriptures. Of course he is a wiz and sometimes I still have to look at the verses to remember all the words. Yesterday we had an appointment at the Health Department and as we sat in the half full waiting room Teddy started to recite Psalm 23 which we had learned before. Several people stopped to listen. I was pretty impressed!! Then he wanted to say his new verses! It was fun to hear him say 1 John 5:13, Romans 3:10 and 12 and then Romans 3:23. Of couse that is where we ended so then I asked him, "If we are all sinners than how can we go to Heaven." Teddy said that, "We have to ask Jesus to come into our hearts!" :) How exciting to know that he is beginning to understand. It was also so neat that he was able to be a witness at such a young age to the several people that sat around us watching and listening.

Free Things

So last night I discovered free things in coupon shopping! WooHoo!!! Soooo exciting. Of course I only got a few because I wanted to be sure that they really were free! Going back tonigt to get more of the same things!!!! It is awsome!! I also saved a ton of money and only spent 49$ for groceries so far for two weeks. I still have to get a few things and am going to one more store to get the rest! (Got tired last night!!) Luckily we live in the ATL area and driving to different stores are pretty close (all within about 10 mins of eachother!)

Play date with the Bonner Kids
















Today the Bonner kids got to come over and play. Danenn, Christopher, and Teddy pulled out the trains and blocks and spread them over the living room. Lillianna and Andy "played" together, too! We had lots of fun. Later today we may go to a park and play with Stephanie Bittle, Raelynn, Brook, Larissa, Josh and maybe even Jenna and her two! LOTS of kids!!!!

Wonder Woman or just plain busy

I've been studying a book called "Small Changes for a Better Life" by Elizabeth George. In the second chapter (which I've read so far four times because I need it a lot!) She talks about prioritizing our life! As I said before I have been trying to really study Proverbs 31 and this book poises a questions that I've been pondering. Was the Proverbs 31 woman a wonder woman, superhero, or was she just like all of us moms a busy woman! I think she was just busy, although I do wonder how she did it all??? It all boils down to priorities. She knew what she needed to get done to please the Lord and that is what she did. Elizabeth George breaks it down to three basic things: Put God first, Serve others, and then Take care of yourself. I have heard it First God, than others, than me! But how? That's what I asked. How do I practice what I know? Well, through this study I've learned some things that have helped me. I am in no way perfect and have not figured it all out, but daily I practice and daily I see changes.
First God. Well, we need to realize that everything we do ultimately is for God. E.George says, "Understanding that I am to do all things in Him and through Him and for Him and unto Him gives my every day and every act of my every day an upward focus." (p.24) Focusing on God in everything seems somewhat hard at first. How do I fold clothes for God. Well, we must realize that as a mom taking care of our house is what God desires of us. One way to focus on God is to make sure that every day we include Him in our life. We do this by reading our Bible, doing devotions, and praying. I even include singing (because I love to sing to Him and the Bible tells us to sing to Him). We must daily decide to do these things because the devil doesn't want us to and he will put things (busy things, good things) in our way so that we will loose our focus.
Second we need to serve others. Who are the others that we serve. Well, God, our husbands, our children, and then other people that we are friends with or just meet! E. George suggests that we plan out how we will do these things. I am not good at keeping planners, so although at first I attempted to do this I switched to making lists. Those are easier for me, but you do what works for you! Write each person you are to serve down and what you will do for them. It could be as simple as Husband: wash tee-shirts to elaborate as neighbor: fix dinner for them and have it there by 5:30pm. I don't know what it is that you want to do or need to do, but do it!! How do we get this all done. By prioritizing our days. Taking out things we don't need like TV and (guilty look) facebook!! Do something everyday to serve others.
The last thing is to take care of ourselves. Well, when I first studied this I thought, yea right! After all the other things I have to do to serve others, when will I have time to do that. Well then I figured out what it means. It doesn't mean to lay around "resting" while eating ice cream and watching a show on TV. It does mean exercising, eating right, and getting enough sleep. (I'm still working on the last thing due to the fact my 3month old doesn't seem to know how much sleep I need!! LOL!!) One thing we need to realize is that taking care of yourself is different from being selfish. E. George says, "Selfishness is self-indulgence, self-serving, and self-focus, which hinders our service to God and others. Tending to yourself, however, enhances and strengthens your service to God and others." (p. 26) We take care of ourselves so that we don't get burnt out and not have the strength to serve God and others!
So, do we need to be wonder woman to carry out all that God has for us. NO! If we did, none of us would succeed! We do however need to learn to live with priorities in place that help us to accomplish all that God has for us. We do everything EVERYTHING for the glory of God. Proverbs 31:30 says, "A woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised!" We can do it! And in the end the Bible tells us that God will praise us! What an awesome and aw inspiring thought! Just think that if we do it the way God wants us to and for Him, He will praise us. Makes me want to do some dishes (okay maybe I'm not jumping up and down to do them, but I have a better attitude anyway).

Money Saving recipe

So I learned how to freeze burritos! I have mentioned this on facebook, but a couple people had asked me what I did. Well here it is...
Whole wheat taco shells
Refried beans
White rice (not instant) made with most of the water replaced with salsa
cheese (I use monterry cause it melts so well)
Then I put beans, mexi rice, and cheese on the shells and roll!
To freeze I wrap them individually and put them in freezer bags! Just pull a couple out when needed and warm them in the microwave. Great for lunches or a quick dinner with some veggies!

Growing!!!


I took a picture of the kids when Andy was first born--it's at the bottom of the blog--It shows their size. Then Tommy had them all looking out the window the other day and I couldn't help but take this one! I am definitly going to keep taking these pictures as they grow. I need another one of them on my bed! Enjoy!!!

sping concert sucess!

Well, it's finally over. For this year. The spring concert went off with great sucess. The choirs and bands did a beautiful job. I especially enjoyed a song that Tommy had the high school choir sing, "Beneath the Cross." The words were really powerful! Brought tears to my eyes! The bands have grown so much over the last seven years. I can't believe the difference. I need to get out the old video from our very first concert at the school just to remind myself. The elementary choir gave the audiance a laugh with their song "I bought me a cat" in fact one little child in the seats every time the choir said "my cat says fidlidee" would say, "no meow." Everyone laughed when the choir said, "I bought me a wife."
Pastor Campbell gave a wonderful closing devotions. It gave me a renewed zeel about sharing Christ and the Bible with my young children. He said that one way to be sure that they turn out well is to have them in God's word in the morning and in the evening.
I can't believe how AWSOME the set looked as you see in my previous posts.
(By the way...so new at blogging that I didn't know I could put the pictures in one post! Oops!)


Appalachian Springtime set 2

Appalachian Springtime set

I Am With the Band

Tonight was the spring concert and Andy wore his cute shirt! It was fun!! He is such a cutie. Tommy was super proud to have him there! He slept through most of the concert, but he is only three months old...so what could you expect. The other two sat with Nana Bonner and the Norris ladies! I had to help Tommy with calling the cues! The concert went great!

Proverbs 31 Woman

I have been really wanted to blog to not only keep my family up to date on the happenings at the Knight house, but also to express all that I am learning about saving and being a good steward in my home! I have been studying the Proverbs 31 woman and realized that I needed to do more to save money and help around the house. I have been reading a couple books and also learning how to coupon! (I would love any great deals anyone sees...feel free to comment and let me know). You see God has the woman in a place of responsibilty for the things in the home including how we spend the money on a day to day basis. So I want to share what I am learning with whoever wants to hear!!!!! I hope that you too will strive to save money, not only because the "economy is really tough" right now, but because it is the RIGHT thing to do! God wants us to be good stewards of what were are given.

Appalachian Springtime

I thought, after I posted the first blog, of what could I share! I realized that I didn't tell about the excitement we are about to experience tomorrow night! Tommy will be directing his second Spring Concert at Old Suwanee. I can't wait to put up the pictures of the set I designed. That sounds very bad, what I mean is that I scribbled out a set design for the theme idea, Appalachian Springtime, Tommy had. Two of the guys at church made it happen! John Lawson our tech guy built flats and a roof for the cabin I had designed. Then, Josh Campbell painted it. The cabin even has wood grain detail in it! The mountains have fog at the bottom. And we even got some antiques to put on the stage! Today was the full rehearsal and we got it done in record time. I am glad that I get to help Tommy with it! I can't wait to see it with everything ready. The kids in their performance wear and the lights glowing.
I can't wait (well actuall I can wait), but it will be fun when Teddy and Danenn get to be part of the school programs!
Will post pictures later!!!!!

Crazy nights!


We are having what we like to call in the Knight house, a crazy night! Teddy and Danenn are running around the house with boxes on their heads and Tommy is trying to get baby Andy to sleep! The noise is crazy! What fun!! I (Megan) love being a mom.
Tonight Teddy said to Tommy, "Daddy, put that thing down, you know abajo" Not sure if that is a good thing or not. Either he is just really smart or he watches too much Diego! LOL!!!!
Well, this is my first Blog...
