Cleveland Cavs Win NBA Championship!

What an amazing Feat! Cleveland has thirsted for a winner for over 50 years! Congratulations to the Cleveland Cavaliers! If you watched game 7 you know it was a great championship game. The teams kept it close most of the game.  It seemed like the Cavs were playing catch up most of the game, but went ahead at a perfect time and stayed ahead.

Craziness ensued and will continue for a long time.  Cleveland is an amazing city! The parade to celebrate will be Wednesday at 11 a.m.  I know I'll be happier to stay at home and watch the event on TV. LOL

Lebron James fell to the floor after winning and cried and thank God for giving him the ability to bring this dream home to 'his' home town.  Lebron was born and raised here in Cleveland.  He lives in Akron, OH and has done so much for the community.

He has given college scholarships to thousands of kids who couldn't afford it on their own.  He really gives back to the community. He had a shoe designed just for individuals who couldn't tie shoes.  When he arrived at home from the championship his family had a huge party and fed every one who came.

I'm not making Lebron an idol, but just listing a few things he does with his money.  He's a  genuine man who wants to make the world a better place.  Can't blame a guy for wanting to do that.  Many times we hear how the wealthy are spending their money on themselves, but here's a guy who is real in spite of his fame.

Media all over has been reporting on this and showing photos and video of this amazing accomplishment!

The Cavs landed yesterday at the IX Center near the airport and found a huge gathering of people to welcome them home.  What an incredible homecoming it must have been.  It was reported that people got tired of waiting for traffic to get into the IX Center that they left cars on the road to the IX Center and it became a virtual parking lot.  Not sure, but that's what Ben told me. 
With all the craziness, I have to get grounded again with God.
 
Here's a beautiful picture of Annie and her husband, Stas' at the Bavarian Bierhaus where we went to dinner.
 This is a new stamp set from Stampin' Up called Best Birds.  I used these colors because of a color challenge where you had to use pink pirouette, smoky slate and plum.
 So much fun being silly sisters at the Botanical Gardens.  Annie wore a cute hat and I stole it when this picture was taken!  I had so much fun in Milwaukee with you Annie and Stas'. It was so hard to leave. Thank you for the wonderful week full of love, silliness and memories.  I love you both.

Verse of the Day:This has been a favorite verse for me. It's plain and simple for all to see and understand. This is the only way to heaven!
Take a listen to this song by Steven Curtis Chapman. I get goosebumps listening to this.  Truly a song to praise God.  The words are beneath.

"One True God"
(feat. Chris Tomlin)

One voice in the dark,
A song that lights up the stars
One breath that gives life
One sovereign in power
Who speaks with thunder and fire.
One Lord One King
There is no other that can compare to You!

You are The one alone in greatness
The one who never changes
Jesus You are!
The One who rose in power
The One who reigns forever
Jesus the one true God!

One man on a cross
And One light of the world
One Name One word
One way to be saved
And one lamb that was slain
One love above all
There is no other that can compare to You!

And we have seen His Glory of
The One and only Son of God [x4]
And You are!!

Blessing of the Day: I toured the yard and saw what an amazing job Tim and the kids did weeding and mulching the whole yard.  Thank you Lord for enabling them to do this.  

Thank you for dropping by.
Blessings,
