Yorkie, your Poem and Graphic are So Beautiful.
Jaycee, that is the Cutest Little Gif in your #38!
Meg, Prayers that your Tremor will Get Better Quickly.
(((((((Goodnight to All Dear FRiends, and God Bless)))))))
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!
Happy Belated Birthday Johnn!!! Hope your day was filled with much joy and someone else cooked for you !! LOL
Yorkie! You are so awesome! LOL
I misssed the past several days of posts, and just taking a few minutes in the quiet of this morning to catch up! You sure did Johnn’s Birthday up well and oh that is scrumptious looking... Hope there is enough leftover for me to have a slice! LOL
That is such a precious poem and photo.....
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.
Darling graphic, Meg! Lots of rain for sure! It rained here all day Monday, sunshine Tuesday, and rain again today! I will try not to complain. Hope things are going well with the packing!! ;o)
Thank you Amy and Kitty..I am better. I still may get behind...but at least I can post.
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)))
Hello Polly! I understand you put up your tree. I’m sure you had some help! (I hope). Will be putting mine up Friday, I suppose! I love it and dread it also....LOL! Have a good Wednesday!!
I am not working hard...just helping here and there..I am not doing any packing.
It took an hour to get her..I had her 3 times..but she was too strong ..I have a gash on my leg and bruises and scratches...She was terrified...My others were no problem at all.
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, hed 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 didnt stand a chance.
The Bible says that the devil doesnt 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 doesnt stand a chance.
Meg! Watch that back!! Otherwise, happy packing! LOL
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!
AHhhhhhhhhhhh Meg!!! I will show him your card when he comes down stairs. I think he is “ sleeping in” !! LOL He better hurry though as he has to take grandson to school. No rest for him, birthday or not!
Thanks for the card. Reminder to self, start taking graphic lessons on January 1st!
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 don’t blame her! LOL... I wanted to crawl under there too with so many in the house! LOL
You are welcome!
I am doing no packing..just washing and drying. I really did a number on my back.
I love this, yorkie.
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!
Great reminder this morning Mayor!
That little girl is absolutely adorable. I could take her in a moment!! And one of the cutest poems I’ve read! Thanks, Amy!
Thank you, Billie..I am so much better right now.
I love Susan Boyle’s voice quality and the way you put her picture in your graphic...
I look forward to the next song!
Maxine is terrific...LOL
What a precious graphic and poem!
Thank you, Polly.
I do too, Meg. Thank you.
“... 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.
Going back to yesterday’s posts, love the “God’s Gift” poem and the illustration of the hands reaching for each other.
HALLEUJAH! Praise the Lord!
I missed this one yesterday, jaycee, thank you! Give us a dog, the flag, and how can we miss. :)
Oh my gosh! I just now read these “headlines” - I love someone else’ bloopers!
Yummm, Carrot Cake - life-sized slice to boot! I haven’t made one in a long time - seem to make pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting pretty often instead. Either one is a winner to me - love that cream cheese frosting!
Oh, what a pretty little pink china cup of coffee! stay tuned - we’re going to have Susan Boyle again tomorrow. :) (I think!)
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! :)
This little goodnight graphic of the sleeping doggie is so sweet!
Oh, you are definitely decorating our thread for Christmas! It just keeps reminding me that it’s *TIME* to get out the tree and the lights and the ornaments and the swags and the music boxes and Santas and Angels and “all that stuff” at home.
Thank you, Billie - I found the poem first - and then went to Mr. G for the graphic. (Mr. G. and I are getting to know each other quite well!)
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!
