Pretty in Pink

Pretty in pink
On ladies it's fine
But on a man
It's not a crime

Dressed in pink
Not baby blue
When your baby girl
Comes home with you

Choose a pink shirt
Instead of plain white
Wear something new
Men have the right

Real men eat quiche
Real men will cry
And a pink shirt
Real men can buy

Pretty in pink
What do you think
Suppose he’s handsome
And gives you a wink

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list

May 1, 2010
The Search For Satisfaction
Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? —Isaiah 55:2

When it comes to jigsaw puzzles, we all know that to enjoy a satisfying outcome you need all the pieces. In many ways, life is like that. We spend our days putting it together, hoping to create a complete picture out of all the scattered parts.

Yet sometimes it seems like a piece is missing. Perhaps we’ve been pursuing the wrong pieces to the puzzle. Even though we may know that life without God at the center is a life that has lost the most important piece, do we live as though He isn’t particularly relevant? And even though we may attend church regularly, is He the throbbing center of our lives? Sometimes we grow accustomed to feeling distant from God. This makes it easier to sin, complicating the sense that something important is missing.

But no matter how far we may drift from God, He wants us near. He appealed to His people through the prophet Isaiah: “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in abundance” (Isa. 55:2).

If something is missing in your life, remember that God is the only One who can fully and abundantly satisfy you. Let Him complete the picture of your life.

The God-shaped void within our heart
Cannot be filled by treasure;
It’s only God who satisfies
In ways we cannot measure. —Sper

There’s a longing in every heart that only Jesus can satisfy.

Bible in One Year: 1 Kings 10-11; Luke 21:20-38

For All The Cat~People Of Amy's Place



Caturday Dance







Here we have The Caturday Dance expressed by Ginger & Fred
Going through their synchronous moves while Their Pretty One sleeps in bed
Ginger on the right prefers to take a stance that slinks and slithers

Fred opts for a more classic routine that reels from yon to hither
Giving like to the exuberance and doing exactly what he wants
For an entire day that is free of embarrassments and annoying taunts
As plans are made to have lots of fun before Their Pretty One wakes

Even if those challenges have to be conquered after a few mistakes
For that is what Caturday is all about for those both furry and wise
Given another week to see what schemes and plans can be devised

Happy First Day of May!
I will be tied up again

I’m not going to be on too much. My knee is giving me some trouble, and I can’t sit too long - (or walk or even move, for that matter.)

So, HOPSCOTCH is out, today, as well as dancing around the May Pole!!
