Hi all. It seems that all I can talk about these days is RUBY! The publisher just emailed me with a "look see" at 2 of the Devotions and OH MY GOSH it was wonderful. More than I had ever expected it to be.

All editors have seen a "sneak preview" of the magazine and I must say it is a work to be proud of. Karen has put together a magazine that God will use in many ways for years to come.

Port Mansfield Vacation

Beautiful sunsets over the King Ranch as seen from the end of the 500 foot pier at Bay Pirate.

DH and I just returned from our 4 day/3 night vacation in Port Mansfield, Texas. The very best fishing vacation spot in the world.

We stayed in one of The Bay Pirate rental homes. It was not only beautiful but it was also peaceful and relaxing. Their rentals are the most comfortable and clean we have ever stayed in. They offer a full kitchen and all the amenities you would find in a full service hotel. Hospitality is their motto.

We enjoyed a private pier where we caught sea trout and had the time of our life. Many species of fish can be found in the Laguna Madre. And just riding around town was a treat in that there are deer just sitting in yards and roaming the town.

There was a large pig that comes off the King Ranch to eat with the deer and take a cool dip in the water trough. Wild turkey, coon and a myriad of other wild animals can be seen at any given time.

We ate at the nicest little place for breakfast and ribs for dinner. Breakfast was a treat. Greg, the owner, cooks up eggs to order right in front of you while you're filling your plate with sausage, bacon, biscuit, hash browns, etc. from the buffet. It won't take you long to find them they are right on the main road...Sweet Gregory P's Smokehouse Grill. Greg & Miriam own it and they can be also be found online at

Click on Bay Pirate to find them and book your stay today.
