I had a lot to happen in the weeks before that and I guess that topped it off and I just cried. Crying may not help a thing but sometimes it just comes on anyway! I got the car fixed, it was the alternator.
My son called the shop who had it and suggested he thought it may be the alternator. He didn't want them to think that they could just do anything to my car. He was very nice to the gentleman but it pays to have a man to talk to the shop. At the same time, 2 huge trees had fallen in my yard....sometimes its one thing after another, we all know that! Guess I was at the breaking point!! I'm fine now....the Lord stepped in and brought me through. I will shut up now or I'll be late! LOL!!!
Good morning, Mayor. Good to see you again this morning.
Thank you for sharing another helping of ODB.
Wishing you a Terrific Thursday and a blessed weekend.
Good morning, NnB.
I have a great idea!! Instead of modifying today’s poem, how about writing me a new Beach poem? :)
I always enjoy rummaging in the archives for the perfect graphic and poem. There are several classics there.
Wishing you a lovely day at the beach.
Happy Thursday, Meg.
That is such a pretty graphic. Thank you for sharing.
I’ve never spent much time at the beach. We have been taking Marissa to Avila Beach every fall. She loves the beach; hubby and junior love the ocean and visiting the local wineries. Me?? I just enjoy getting away for a few days. :)
Wishing you a wonderful day of beautiful memories.
Good morning, Polly. Thank you.
Happy July. Hard to imagine that the year is half over. I’m anxious for November. Praying that I am not disappointed again.
Our temps have cooled down. Thank God. Hope it is not headed your way. The 108 was miserable. Seemed to have hit us without warning.
Have a delightful day.
Thank you, Jaycee.
As you can see, this is an old Opening. Though I never spent time at the beach when I was young, this graphic still reminds me of summer fun.
Wishing you a beautiful day.
T Y, Jaycee
See ya when you get back.
Hans Geiger, Marie Curie, Rudolf Diesel, Samuel Morse, and Louis Braille share something in common. They all invented or discovered something significant that bears their name. Their names, along with many others, appear in the Encyclopedia Britannicas Greatest Inventions, a list of 325 innovations that have had profound effects on human life.
We who follow Christ bear His name. In Lukes record of the early church, he said: The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch (Acts 11:26). Later, Peter urged the early believers not to be ashamed of suffering as a Christian (1 Peter 4:16). The term Christian, once directed at Jesus followers in scorn, was embraced by them as a badge of honor, a mark of allegiance to Him.
E. M. Blaiklock, former Chair of Classics at the University of Auckland, wrote that in the first century the term Christian had a certain appropriateness, for it implied loyalty and acceptance of a person, and that person, the Messiah (Christ). . . . The true modern use of the word follows the same tradition. . . . The Christian is one who accepts, with all its implications, the lordship of Jesus Christ.
As followers of Christ today, we gladly bear His name as our Savior, Lord, and Friend.
Read: Acts 11:19-26
LOL! Cute graphic, M.L.! Jaycee is not dressed for the day yet. I will try to wear red today! Need to find a red Friday graphic, too. Have a wonderful FRiday, FRiend!
Good Morning Conor! Thanks for our lovely FRiends in Red! Wishing you a wonderful FRiday!
Thanks for the reminder, RED is the color of the day then.
LOLOL... Good Morning and Happy Extra Day! That scene is so inviting..Breakfast on the waves!
Have a good day. We are going to take a drive to Wrightwood, which is a bit over a hour drive and have a late brunch, just to get away today!
See you all later...
