Eat Chili's today - Help St. Jude =-)




YIKES! I almost forgot to mention that by eating at Chili's today you'll be helping fund research for St. Jude. Yes, Chili's will be donating 100 PERCENT of their profit from today to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!!

I thought that before I go I'd share a picture of Brent from a few years back. We'd gone on out one of these Chili's/St. Jude events to do our part. ☺ In the pic below is our precious Brent with Madelyn Beamon (another "Heaven Healed Neuroblastoma Warrior"), her mom Brandi, her Daddy Neal, and her brother Tyler. It's so hard to believe that so many children we knew from St. Jude are in Heaven now. Research is DESPERATELY needed and funding is the key. What better way to help out than eating at Chili's? Can you think of a better place to eat lunch/supper today? (I mean, if you were eating out anyway.. haha)




This is a pic of Brent with his cousin Clay, who was also one of his very best friends. ☺





Thanks for putting up with me twice in one day.. LOL! I hope you have a GREAT week!

Love,
Tonya

Love it! We ate there the other weekend and colored a pepper for St Judes. We always write our story on one of the peppers and our waiter loved it! : ) I bought a tshirt this year.. inside the pepper, it says HOPE. Loved that too. Although I see hope in a different way than was intended by the shirt. : )

Of course, wouldn't miss it! Well, I had parent/teacher conferences, so my sweet husband packed up the kids (yes, all of them) and took them out on his own. Then he ordered mine and brought it home to me for when I finished. We cannot miss this day...it is a special day.

PS Love the pictures especially of Brent and Madelyn. Two very sweet souls!

tonya Chili's closed in our town about two years ago. It was one of my favorites. Just know I would eat there if it were here to support St. Jude.

Love those photos of Brent - and, ok, I checked in a day to late for Chili's...but so glad to hear from you again. I haven't been by in awhile - well, 'cause I thought you had quit blogging (imagine that!) but good to read your posts - and catch up a bit! Hope your week is going well:)

Continuing to pray!
Psalms 37:39-40 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

This was my Daily Bible Verse today. Still here praying!
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Continuing to lift up prayers!
Psalms 94:17-19 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

Know that I'm still here praying!
Psalms 40:1-4 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
