Good Sunday Morning


"Give as ’twas given to you in your need,
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed
Unto your mission be true. —Wilson"

Thank you, Mayor, for this wonderful message.
Hope all is well with you.
Wishing you a blessed Lord's Day

Luv, I can feel the excitement and anticipation! Prayers that he has a safe trip! I'll bet he is droolin', right about now - thinking about his Mom's biscuits!!

And, I was going to post a "WOW!" yesterday, to your beautiful graphic of that sweet little grandaughter!


(computer froze up - and then by the time it came back on - and I answered other pings, it got lost in the shuffle!)

She is SO BEAUTIFUL, Luvie! Thank you for sharing that precious smile with us!

Oh, Meg, your butterfly pictures are BREATHTAKING!
Thank you for putting them all together for us!
I hope you are feeling better today,
And having a Blessed Sunday!

A BUTTERFLY UNVEILS NEW COLORS

Like a butterfly
unveiling new wings
you show me your colors
wings melded of quiet
strength and dignity
with colors taken
from goddess dreams
as she sleeps.

Thank you, Amy and Lori
For the lovely August opening!


HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

"But every house
where Love abides,
And Friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home,
and home-sweet-home;
For there the heart can rest."

Good morning, it’s a beautiful but VERY HOT day here in Memphis. Heat index about 113 I heard the guy behind me in church say.

I get pinged every day but seldom contribute. I ran across one of my favorites this week and thought y’all might enjoy the inspirational lyric.

It is the Carter Family standard, Keep on the sunny Side.

Keep On The Sunny Side of Life
Written by Ada Blenkhorn in 1899.
Music by J. Howard Entwisle.

There’s a dark and a troubled side of life
There’s a bright and a sunny side, too
Tho’ we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

[chorus]
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we’ll keep on the sunny side of life

Tho’ the storm in its fury broke today,
Crushing hopes that we cherished so dear;
Storm and cloud will in time pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear.

Let us greet with a song of hope each day
Tho’ the moments be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Saviour alway
Who keepeth everyone in His care

The vocalist is I believe June Carter Cash.....

Thank you Meg... I’m home trying to catch up on duties around the house. Just cut the grass, now have to do some weed whacking. Also work on a couple cars... Never ending.
