Are you searching for a title company?

If you've ever purchased a home, then you know how important it is to have a good title company working with your agent. The right title company can help the home buying process go smoothly by getting all the required paperwork completed on time for your closing.

Perhaps you or someone you know is in the market for a new home now, or maybe you're refinancing? The site Nearby Title is a good place to help you find a title company that is close to you. This site also gives title companies the opportunity to highlight some of the reasons why you should pick their company over another (such as awards, newspaper articles, links to their websites, hours of operation, etc). The cool thing is that you type in your location and the distance you are willing to travel, and Nearby Title finds all of the title companies within that distance and when you click on each company's name, you get a little map showing you where they are located. Pretty neat.

Nearby Title is definitely a good option to try when searching for the perfect title company! See for yourself by clicking here: Find a Title Company Near Your Home

Goodbye Corey Ford

A few weeks ago, Ande found out that a guy he used to be pretty close friends with was in the hospital with a pretty serious condition. It had been a few years since Ande had seen Corey - the last time being when Corey was on a basketball team that was sponsored by our church. He was a great athelete.

When Ande went to visit Corey, he found his old friend to be paralyzed from the neck down. Corey couldn't even speak. From what I know, Corey just woke up one morning this way, with no explanation. Since Corey couldn't speak, Ande wasn't really able to communicate with him, until the nurse brought in a board with letters on it so that Ande could point to the letters until Corey nodded his head to indicate it was the right letter. Ande said it was a slow process, but after visiting a couple of times, they got pretty good at it.

Ande went to the hospital after work last night to visit Corey, but when he got there, he found out that Corey had died. Corey Ford, age 31, passed away on Easter Sunday. It took a moment for that to sink in when Ande told me, but then I burst into tears. How appropriate that on the day we celebrated our new life in the risen Jesus that Corey was able to celebrate his new life in Heaven. No more suffering and pain for Corey - and it's all possible because Jesus went to the cross for us.

Although it's always sad to lose a friend or family member, it's comforting to know that if they knew Jesus, then they no longer know pain and suffering! What an encouragement.

If you're local and knew Corey, the visitation is on Friday, March 28 from 1:00pm to 8:30pm at the Lawrence E. Moon Funeral Home, 906 W Flint Park Blvd, Flint, MI. The funeral service is at the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church at 1083 E. Stewart Avenue, Flint, MI at 1:00pm on Saturday, March 29.

Under the Sea

Two oysters walk into a bar. One oyster says, "Hey, what does a mollusk have to do to get something to drink around here?" The bartender looks up and say, "Look, pal, this is a SAND bar. We only serve SAND."

Yes, it's a lame joke. But now that I have your attention, let me tell you about something that isn't a laughing matter. Did you know that eating raw oysters could cause you to become seriously ill, or even KILL you?

Because there are so many people around the world who LOVE to eat raw oysters (I am not one of those people, but I know there are people who do), this website was developed to help people understand the risks associated with consuming uncooked oysters. You can find it here: Gulf oysters. It also has some pretty tasty sounding recipes for those of us who just aren't brave enough to try something like oysters on the half shell.

I would encourage anyone who likes raw oysters to check this site out, it's pretty informative. Please remember that you can be paid to review my post by clicking the "Review my post" button below.

Would you do it all over again?

I "stole" this link from Destini's blog. It's the story of a couple Destini goes to church with, a couple in need of prayer. I can barely see to type for all the tears. I don't know this family, but we are all a part of the family of God. Please read this story and pray for this family.
