could you, would you, please
tone it down
or turn it off
are you telling the world
this is what you’ve got?
profanity is not pleasing
to my ears
that children hear..
if you are thinking
that it will get my vote
i am sorry to tell you
it seriously will not..
It’s that time of year.. Current pictures of my grandkiddos is always a blessing and much appreciated. They certainly are a gift from God. As I continue on my journey of 100 days of thanks, I am grateful for the opportunity to observe their growth, and see them as I can. I applaud my children, for the great job of raising their children, in happy and nurturing households. Would you join me and others, this new school season and pray for all children that are going to school? For the little one’s in pre-school and daycare centers, and daycare providers and teachers.
I am making a correction here after posting this earlier. For some reason I had Friday on my brain, instead of Thursday. I will blame it on the heat. Friday seems to come fast enough without my help. Anyay, I hope the butternut taste as good, as they look.
I discovered this book at one of the local discount stores. It’s one of those that kind of jumped out at me. Of course when I purchased it, I had Thanksgiving on my mind. You know, turkey and all of the trimmings. lol! Well not really.. I hadn’t started reading it, until this morning, when I realized, that if I wanted to coincide with the days until Thanksgiving, I had some catching up to do. The little reminders about gratitude are great and speak to me. I find that it is easy to get into a slump of mumble and grumble and not be able to recognize a blessing or gift of life when it’s right in our face. So today I am embarking on this challenge to be open minded and see what God has in store for me to learn.
Do you have a memory of a stranger, acquaintance, or someone else you didn’t know well having a positive impact on your life?
I met one person at a store, that my mother managed, when I was a teenager. Another I met while I was a volunteer teen at our local hospital. Two others I met on the job when I worked at a library, and one at church and one other at a Bible study.
I kept this note from Glenn H. He passed away years ago. Reading this reveals his heart. All of these short seasonal people in my life were gentle natured. I am grateful for these wise and kind people that God sent my way.
