Good Morning Meg! 3 inches of rain? WOW!
Los Angeles is cool, but no rain, sadly. I sure hope this isn’t going to be another drought year for us.

Christmas Tree went up yesterday... horray!
Now to work on those cards, and the season will be well on it’s way.

Today I stop and celebrate beloved hubby’s 71st BD!

Happy Birthday dear sweet Mel!

Thank you, jaycee..It’s the typing that is hardest to do.
I have been sick and also pulled muscles in my back trying to get Smokie out from under my king sized bed so we could travel to my daughter’s home.. I have the wounds to show it..LOL
My tremor gets wild when I am hurting..I feel better today.

We are washing china to pack, etc.

Smokie knew something was going on out of the ordinary. Did you get scratched? LOL! They can do that for sure.

Washing China to pack sounds like a job I wouldn’t like to do right now (or anytime)!! I don’t understand how you are able to do all that....may the Lord be with you!

I thought maybe your main job would be kitty-sitting! I used to display all my china and silver tea set and other silver small things in an open buffet. After years of cleaning silver and washing the dishes, I tired of all the cleaning, etc, especially the silver and I packed it all away.

Take it easy if you can....(((Hugs)))

He Doesn’t Stand A Chance
He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. —1 John 4:4

In 2004, Josh Hamilton was an outstanding pro baseball prospect, but he was suspended because of drug abuse. Then one night Josh had a life-changing dream. He was fighting the devil. “I had a stick,” he said, “and every time I hit him, he’d fall and get back up. I hit him until I was exhausted, and he was still standing.”

After that nightmare, Hamilton vowed to stay clean. The dream returned, but with an important difference. “I would hit [the devil] and he would bounce back,” said Josh. But this time Josh was not alone. He said, “I turned my head and Jesus was battling alongside me. We kept fighting, and I was filled with strength. The devil didn’t stand a chance.”

The Bible says that the devil doesn’t stand a chance because the Spirit, who is in us, is greater than he is (1 John 4:4). Christ came to destroy the works of the devil through His life, ministry, and sacrifice (3:8). At the cross, He disarmed and triumphed over the devil (Col. 1:13-14; 2:15).

Though defeated by the cross, the devil remains active in this world. But his final defeat is certain (Rev. 20:7-10). Until then, we take up the whole armor of God (Eph. 6:10-18), standing firm against him by Jesus’ blood and His Word. He doesn’t stand a chance.

And though this world, with devils filled,
Should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed
His truth to triumph through us. —Luther

The devil is a defeated foe.


Bible in One Year: Ezekiel 42-44; 1 John 1

Good Morning Jaycee!!! Good Morning!!

I’m still working the living room over this morning.I’m doing the mantel, and my little village.
Yes I did have help...Hubby put it up and daughter helped with decorations and lights. I thought I would never succumb to a fake tree, but we purchased our tree 15 years ago and every year it looks nicer!

I know about the “ love it,dread it” part! I did start singing carols as I put on ornaments we have collected over 50 years!
God is Good!

Now please send Los Angeles your rain!

Smokey sounds like our two cats, Lucy and April , after Thanksgiving. They were so spooked! April hid under our bed and would NOT come out!

I just talked to my brother in Georgia and he says its raining hard and side-ways down there! Ours is a slow rain!
Wish you had some of my brother’s rain!

I know what you mean about your ornament collection. I love putting on ornaments. When I reach for each one, I remember something sweet. It is fun! Sometimes memories flood back and brings a tear, but I don’t let it get to me anymore. I just try to have a happy time doing it!

Good morning, All.
We have our first school delay of the new year.
The fog has really socked us in this morning.

I have several things to do today; I hope the delay is only for an hour. :)

Wishing everyone a Warm Fuzzy Wednesday.
I'll be back in a few minutes.

“... Share the fact that “the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 6:23).

Or share this verse from John 1:12, “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”

Amen. And amen.

Thank you for telling me that, yorkie. The song is very moving - in fact, almost every single track on that album is just beautiful. I just told jaycee that I'm pretty sure Amy is going to post another from the album tomorrow, so hope your guest will also enjoy that one.

Most of the songs on the cd are cover songs from other artists before Susan, but I believe that yesterday's "Who I Was Born To Be" was written for her to sing. Anyway, I sure don't mind hearing her sing other people's songs! :)

I think Betty Crocker (or Duncan Heinz) makes a pretty good one, in those little plastic tubs. (But, to be REALLY good, it takes two tubs.) No calories, of course. LOL!

When I first saw Susan Boyle, I thought, “Finally! Someone with real talent that looks like a ‘regular’ human being.....not overly made up, or anorexically thin, or bleached hair with extensions, or huge bosom implants!”

I hoped that no one would try to ‘transform’ her!
