FEBRUARY IS NOT A BARGAIN

February is not a bargain
Besides its cold and long dark nights
Its icy streets and frozen lakes and rivers
It has the audacity to cheat us out of a couple days
And wallowing in its own ego
Still claims to be a month.

~Fish Hawk .... 2011

We don’t get the cold, cold winter that you do, but I’m tired of damp, foggy, gloomy days. I’m looking forward to spring color.

Winter takes his bow
Bending low the leafless limbs
carry weight of snow
             falling soft as eider down
             forests wear a wedding gown

Happy February!






Thank You, Amy, For Your Great February opening! And Now, A poem and song of February from "The PIRATES OF PENZANCE";

For some ridiculous reason,
to which, however, I've no desire to be disloyal,
Some person in authority,
I don't know who,
very likely the Astronomer Royal,
Has decided that, although for such a beastly month as February,
twenty-eight days as a rule are plenty,
One year in every four his days shall be reckoned as nine and twenty.
Through some singular coincidence
I shouldn't be surprised if it were owing to the
agency of an ill-natured fairy
You are the victim of this clumsy arrangement,
having been born in leap-year, on the
twenty-ninth of February;
And so, by a simple arithmetical process,
you'll easily discover,
That though you've lived twenty-one years, yet,
if we go by birthdays, you're only five
and a little bit over!
RUTH. and KING. Ha! ha! ha! ha!
Ho! ho! ho! ho!
FRED. Dear me!
Let's see! (counting on fingers)
Yes, yes; with yours my figures do agree!
ALL. Ha! ha! ha! ho! ho! ho! ho!
FRED. (more amused than any) How quaint the ways of Paradox!
At common sense she gaily mocks!
Though counting in the usual way,
Years twenty-one I've been alive,
Yet, reckoning by my natal day,
I am a little boy of five!
RUTH and KING. He is a little boy of five! Ha! ha! ha!
ALL. A paradox, a paradox,
A most ingenious paradox!
Ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha!, etc.

That’s Ok..I posted that beach picture last night on the January thread!

It was 63 then It’s 26 now and dropping.
The radar showed we got snow..but I only had rain and some thunderstorms earlier..
We just aren’t accustomed to several days in a row of such cold weather..but it’s here and will stay awhile.
I have 2 kinds of soup in the freezer and lots of chocolate..I’m in great shape to stay put.
;o)

Counterfeits Of The Heart
February 1, 2011

True stories about deceit and deception can sound stranger than fiction. According to an AP news item, a Georgia woman was arrested after trying to pay for more than $1,500 in purchases with a million-dollar counterfeit bill. When questioned, the embarrassed patron claimed to have been misled, saying that the fake money had been given to her by her ex-husband, who was a coin collector.

The size of the bill makes us question whether anyone could really have been misled into thinking it was real. But maybe that makes it a good illustration of the almost unbelievable problem of self-deception that the prophet warns us about. When Jeremiah said, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” (17:9 ESV), he expresses a sense of amazement that is beyond our ability to grasp. Here the prophet is not saying that some of us have a problem being honest with ourselves; he is claiming that everyone does.

Thankfully, God searches our hearts and understands what we cannot see (v.10). He gives us every reason to say, “Lord, we need Your help. Please show us whether we are being honest with ourselves and You. If we aren’t, help us to change and rely on You rather than on ourselves.”

Search me, O God, and know my heart today;
Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts I pray.
See if there be some wicked way in me;
Cleanse me from every sin and set me free. —Orr

The only way to survive in a world of deception is by trusting the One who will never deceive us.

Read: Jeremiah 17:5-11

The heart is deceitful above all things. —Jeremiah 17:9
Bible in a year:
Exodus 27-28; Matthew 21:1-22

I know this one for sure. It is NOT photo-shopped. I first saw in announced on Yahoo and in the next day or two, it popped up on the news. It was about 2 years ago. I have a couple different ones of the puppy in my files.

Good morning! BRRRRRRRRR! Our first snow, and it's 17 degrees outside. Knew it was coming though and made a big pot of vegetable/beef soup yesterday.

It is a beautiful graphic. I have seen that posted in the newspaper from family, on an Anniversary of their loved one’s death. (only the prayer, not the graphic.)
