Hello friends! Just a note to you, that we are preparing to move and therefore I am limited in my ability to post. This is a house that we came across in our travels. I look forward to settling in in our new location, but it will be a while. Please pray for the fires in California and for the residents. Stay well, be encouraged and trust God for all in your lives. He is a good, good Father.. 🙂
It’s that time of year, when I am thinking about and praying for children that are starting their school year. My, how things have changed. Did we not look like wholesome kids..lol! Well, I am sure there were some little rascals in that class.
I loved the dresses during that time. Jump rope, trading cards, jacks, foursquare and monkey bars were my recess favorites, along with hopscotch. Tuna sandwiches rocked, especially if accompanied with Fritos. Oh such memories..
Father, I pray for blessing upon all children. I pray for safekeeping, and teacher’s that inspire and that are committed to seeing that each child flourish and have a successful school year. Father, just as your eye is on the sparrow, you know each child by name. You know the number of strands of hair on each head. Thank you, that you are a loving and caring God and wanting good for all. In Jesus name I pray.. Amen!
Where is your soul
in all of that hot air..
your speech is despicable
maybe you don’t care..
you speak often and rudely
to show you are tough..
that kind of behavior
tells me much..
about your character
and I am sorry to say..
there’s a lack of integrity
by the end of the day..
Good morning! I am sharing this sweet heartwarming story. Perfect for this season…
Once again it’s time for my scans, bloods and mole check.
And once again they are clear.
I go down to the sea and shout a thanks to the sea birds, seals, dolphins and whoever wishes to listen and rejoice with me.
You are probably wondering why I want to keep reminding myself of my illness, after all it is eight years ago since my diagnosis and probably high time to put it behind me.
But having to face these scans every year won’t allow me to forget and anyway sometimes it’s good to feel that panic and fear again followed by the relief.
It reminds me of those promises I made to myself if I survived……
To stay healthy,
To lose weight,
To not stress so much.
And to dare!
”Two pots of homemade jam.
a cup of tea and a hug”
Maybe he said a cup of…

Just a reminder for those that plan to view the Eclipse.. Protect your eyes and I heard this from someone this morning to not stare. Maybe a good idea to do research on the subject of viewing an Eclipse.. It has been disappointing, to hear that glasses have been sold that are not legitimate. Once again, all in the name of money and no concern for people and the harm that can be done. How about integrity? And concern for the welfare of people.. Safety first~
Before I continue, I wish to thank a sweet lady, over at Mama’s Empty Nest for an award that she gave to me. It was quite a nice and welcome surprise when I saw this. We are kindred sister’s in our faith and like Mama, we are empty nester’s as well. It was a boost I needed and brought encouragement my way. Thank you! xx
And an explanation…
It has been a few weeks since I have posted anything. Our slow computer contributed to this. I find it to be a challenge to do anything online at times. Our internet service it not the greatest, but it is affordable. On top of this, in the month of April, I lost the wind in my sails, after reading something online that disturbed me. During this time I wanted to respond, but after considering it, I decided to let it go. I believe it was written with good intentions, but I found it to be written, in what felt like, a sense of superiority… I allowed it to knock out all interest in posting or writing anything. As I reflect, I realize it was just a teachable moment and a time for me to examine my heart and take a look at what was going on.. Being the imperfect people, that we are, there are always ongoing lessons to be learned, in the school of life on earth. So onto the new. There have been blessings in our lives with new birth and birthdays. We now have four grandchildren, having birthdays in the month of May. Unfortunately we are not at a place (location) where we can easily join in on the celebrations. After much contemplation we are considering what we can do to change our situation. We have put a lot of love into our home, but this is not the first time we have beautified and then moved on.. I still may be making some other changes and that may include wordpress too, but until then, I want to say Hello, to all of you beautiful people…
On this very fine day
a tiny flower blossomed
from where she came
there was no longer room
her stay was complete
loved ones longed to see her face
with their arms they would embrace
the flower they were given
on this very fine day in May…
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in that secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be
