They Have To. It’s MY Thread! Ha ha ha! I RUN it.

A half-nekked guitar gal will pass, but a ham sandwich? NEVER! LOL!

Other than losing a close friend or loved one, can anyone tell me anything more sad in life as cooking a fantastic dinner and then having to eat it alone?

That one is so cute. My red T yesterday had the US Flag with a kitty in a jeweled color sitting in front of it. So I got to wear our Flag too. Now if I could just find a T that had puppies on it with the Flag too I’d so LOVE it.

A Snail’s Pace
July 3, 2010

One of my earliest childhood memories was watching snails in our backyard flower garden. I was fascinated by this little creature with a shell, a slimy little tummy, and tiny eyes that turned like periscopes. But what really seemed unusual was how slowly a snail travels.

How slow does a snail go? One study clocked a snail at 0.00758 miles per hour—or 40 feet in one hour. No wonder we use the phrase moving at a snail’s pace to mean “slow.”

Although a snail does move at a “sluggish” pace, one virtue it does possess is perseverance. The great 19th-century preacher Charles Spurgeon wryly observed, “By perseverance the snail reached the ark.”

According to the apostle Paul, perseverance is a key component in character development. He explained that “tribulation produces perseverance” (Rom. 5:3). And upon that building block go character and hope (v.4). The original Greek word translated “perseverance” means “steadfastness, constancy, and endurance.” It was used of believers who endured in their walk of faith despite many painful trials.

Have setbacks slowed you down to a snail’s pace? Be encouraged. God doesn’t ask for a fast finish. He expects persevering progress.

When trials intrude to slow down your life,
It would be easy for you to give in;
But by perseverance you’ll overcome strife,
So just keep on plodding—with Christ you can win. —Branon

Great achievement requires great perseverance.

Read: Romans 5:1-5

Tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. —Romans 5:3-4
Bible in a year:
Job 25-27 & Acts 12

It will be great to get my bite back

I know what you mean, Amy. I had a 'temporary' for what seemed like forever - and at last I can smile without embarassement, and eat corn on the cob!

I made cinnamon rolls (with raisins and nuts) this morning, using one of those pop-open containers of pizza dough. I haven't made them in at least four or five months, and it feels SOooo GOOD to be SOooo BAD. LOL!

Have a great weekend!

Good morning, Meg. Happy CATurday.
Your patriotic cat looks like Mr Mittens.

I'm late again. Got sidetracked.
Marissa went to Bible study this morning.
Due to appts, she missed the past two Saturdays.
The bus was 45 minutes late this morning.
She thought that they had forgetten her. :)

Hope you're a having a Fabulous Weekend.

I’m glad you liked the poochie! Thought he was cool in those shades!
As memory recalls, isn’t Crestline up near or on the way to Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear? Very long story, but almost moved to that area in 1986, but it didn’t work out. I remember the 1st time I drove up that mountain by myself! I was so scared, but after time, finally got used to it! I remember one lady I had met, said she had lost three husbands on that road! HUM???

Cute graphic and poem, Amy!


Swimming is an easy thing,
If you know how to do it.
You push the water wide apart,
And then you just go through it.

But NOT if yer a CAT!

Yes ... my little girl misses her big brother. She hasn’t seen him since June 6th. She has talked to him a couple of times.

She has been asking if I will take them to John’s Incredible Pizza. She is not interested in the pizza; she wants to play the games.

I will find a day after Vacation Bible School for them. I also need to see if her little sisters can come over for an afternoon.

Sissy is a tempermental monopoly player. She wants to play by her rules. LOL
