My Mountain Home (see more on my Harlan pg)
In Memory of My cousin Debbie (Miracle) McRoberts


There's is a far away place called Heaven
That my eyes do long to see
Where there is peace and comfort
No troubles there for me.
In this world of sin and sorrow
Little happiness do I find
But in the life here after
So much joy will be mine.
So let us tote our burdens
Though they be large or small, and I know God will understand
If we should stumble and maybe fall.
My life here so soon will be over.
and I'll go to shake his hand
My eyes are fixed on heaven, on that happy glory land.

Debra A (Miracle) McRoberts

Aboard the msCelebration

One thing we started as a family is take a winter vacation. We go now each year on a cruise and we love it. I will be showing more about that in my Bahamas page

Blackberry Dumplings

Blackberry can be found wild growing just about everyplace in the Mountains during the spring. Here is a simple country recipe I make, Blackberry Dumplings. Bring to boil 4 cups of Blackberries with 3 cups of sugar and 1 half stick of butter in a 2-4qt. pot, cook until tender you can add more or less sugar to taste. Add 2 cans of biscuits whole or cut into. Turn stove down to a simmer until the biscuit is done, it's really good with ice cream.

    Was surfing Google looking for pictures of Harlan County. I lived there with my fiance for four years in the '90s. It gets into your blood, that's for sure!
