Hello there, GeeBee.

Enjoy your time with your son.

I haven't checked the list but is he on our Military Prayer List?

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend.

Good afternoon, Kitty Mittens.

Has Doggie been staying home in the evenings?
We have quit locking Mr Mittens in the garage at night.
We leave the door open about 6 inches so he can come and go as he pleases.
He still insists on coming in every morning.
Now that it is so warm, he likes to get under the bed and take a long nap.

I think he is spoiled. :)

Have a beautiful day.

I used to know a few phrases in Japanese the English translation went as follows:

“You are a very pretty girl.

Are you sure?

I am sure

Thank you very much kind sir.

You are welcome.”

You can see that I did my best to learn the important words of the language. :)

You may have heard, but I just heard they found that little 12 year old girl’s remains. Isn’t that awful? I hate to bring bad news but things like that upsets me so. I had wished so hard that she would be safe.

For All The Cat~People Of Amy's Place



Adjustments





'Time Outs' are a sometime annoying part of a Kitten's indoctrination
To the overwhelming World all around and are given with reliable hesitation
By My Pretty One who must have had more than one earlier Feline boarder
For she is very wise to my ways of creating havoc and disorder
As I endeavor to playfully expand my skill and horizons while awake

Tempting fate at nearly every turn without taking a break
Fluidlly smooth, low hanging Table Cloths still get the best of me
Slipping and spilling down in a noisy racket before I have a chance to flee
A risky adventure for which there is no conceivable alibi

My Pretty One seems much to smart to even attempt asking "Why?"
She just sets me down to watch her make things nice and neat again
While I contemplate making her latest box for 'Shoes' my latest den
Since battling and shredding rustling paper, I never get enough of
Especially when it uncoils from way up high and wraps 'round like a glove

Making a wondrously soft pillow and blanket for a triumphant Nap
Well aware that when My Pretty One comes Home I cannot beat the rap
So, it's off to the 'Time Out Corner' for some solace and meditation
While I ponder how to best avoid the next embarrassing situation

Thankyou so for your prayers. This will be a critical test this weekend. She will actually go home for the first time in five weeks, and then on Saturday go to be with her dad for the weekend...without any therapy . Pray that he will know what to do as he hasn’t been in “ the loop” a lot lately.

Cute Graphic too Amy!! *grin*

I have this link Meg sent me last night and it has some attached links. It has been such a sad story. She went missing a week ago from Vermont, the state who goes so easy on child molesters, (Nancy Grace said last night, the worst state out of 50, she said they got an F for Flunk! It has been wall to wall coverage. Looks like to me everyone in her family failed her.

What, Me Worry?
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. —Philippians 4:6

Whenever a preacher begins to talk about worry, I sense a pair of eyes staring at me. Without even turning my head, I know that my husband is looking at me to see if I’m paying attention.

I hate to admit it, but I’m a worrier. And precisely because there are a lot of people just like me, Jesus addressed this problem in Matthew 6:25-34 when He said: “Do not worry.” Don’t worry about the basic needs of life—food, clothing, shelter—and don’t worry about tomorrow.

Worry may be a symptom of a bigger problem. Sometimes it’s a lack of gratitude for the way God has cared for us in the past. Or perhaps it’s a lack of faith that God really is trustworthy. Or it may be a refusal to depend on God instead of ourselves.

Some people expand the worry circle to their families, friends, and churches. They’re a lot like the 10 spies in Numbers 13:26-33 who spread their fear and doubt to everyone else. But those who put their trust in God alone can stand alongside Joshua and Caleb, the only ones in the group of 12 whom God allowed to enter the Promised Land.

Don’t let worries hold you back from what God may be trying to teach you. He invites you to bring your anxious thoughts directly to Him (Phil. 4:6

When you feel the tension mounting,
And across the busy day
Only gloomy clouds are drifting,
As you start to worry—pray! —Anon.

To be anxious about nothing, pray about everything.


Bible in One Year: 2 Chronicles 19–21; Proverbs 1:20-33

Are you packing yet for that wonderful vacatiion.

Good morning, jaycee.

Yes, I am starting to lay things out and making a list of what to bring. I am going to try to pack light. That is always my plan but, for a person who likes to be prepared for any eventuality, it is almost impossible. I have to remember that we won't be leaving civilization and many things we might need we can pick up anywhere along the way.

I am so looking forward to this adventure. I haven't been back to New England since I was a very young child. And it looks like we are going to get to meet up with a few of my favorite freeple along the way too. Icing on the cake!

Your vacation sounds wonderful and you’re going to get to see some FRiends is very special.

Speaking of packing, my husband always teased me. He would jokingly tell our friends that I had to take everything I owned on vacation. Said his things took up little space and it took the rest of the car for my stuff! He loved to tease me. I always told him I might spill something on an outfit the first day and never knew how many changes I would need.

Women are different for sure! I’ve been playing with my new camera this morning....I don’t know how to hook it to the computer yet, because I wanted to learn how to take pictures first. I was clicking everything and got the warning, my memory card was full. I didn’t know how many it held. I will learn quickly by spending more time with my book!

One of my little chipmunks was floating on the pool this morning when I looked out my bedroom window. First thing I faced was getting the net and getting him out, with tears in my eyes. Nature works this way I guess. Had a lot of those little cuties this year.

I’ve been playing with my new camera this morning....

Oh, you got a new camera!? What kind did you get?

For me, the best way to learn is by trial and error. If I really get stuck, I will reluctantly get out the instruction book, but it just kills me to have to resort to that. Usually, more than half the book is covering things I already know or don't need to know. I am way too impatient and always want to just jump in and start using my new camera, cell phone, whatever. Good luck. Looking forward to some future picture pings from you!

Sorry about your little chipmunk. Yes, those things happen, but it is always so sad to see. Not a good thing to wake up to, for sure.

I know very little about digital cameras.

It is a Canon Power Shot A470. 7.1 mega pixels. 3.4X optical zoom. You will understand all that more than me but so far I have found it easy to use...including the zoom. I was scared to death to use it. My son helped me a bit the day he worked on the computer again recently! He tried to assure me I wouldn’t hurt it. I do use the strap around my wrist though.

I guess those memory cards come in different sizes don’t they? I mean the number of pictures you can take? I think I took 16, including what my son shot the other day. I had a pot of flowers in sight to shoot and it told me my memory card was full. And I said....Oh, shoot! I will learn.

Graphic by MamaBear

Prayer for the Unborn

Lord I pray this Sunday morn
for those souls that are not yet born
still a fetus in the womb
souls of love that you would groom

Keep them from man's every whim
whose abortion rates are dismal grim
destroying those that you create
playing God with children's fate

They name it "choice" to soothe their guilt
dissolving that which you have built
to live and love in You abide
is ended in infanticide

Of all the sins that man has wrought
this is the worst one of the lot
Lord, of this evil we repent
for killing of the innocent

Woe to those on judgment day
who stand before you when you say,
" I judge you not, but to these I give,
these souls that you denied to live,

will judge you now at heavens gate
and hold the power of your fate
so hope their mercy will abound
for in you was no mercy found"

~ Fish Hawk
