SPANKING NEW THREAD!

(and I posted this on old & here!)

Thank you Amy .. I hope all the folks here are doing well. I am hating winter more & more each day.

Looked through a group of my pix from the beach last summer just a bit ago & REALLY longing for the sun, flowers, warm water.

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

Win Or Lose
March 1, 2011

During the 2009 college football season, University of Texas quarterback Colt McCoy began every post-game interview by thanking God for the opportunity to play. When he was injured early in the national championship game, he was forced to watch from the sidelines as his team lost.

The apostle Paul experienced God’s deliverance many times, but he didn’t insist on things going his way. From prison in Rome he wrote to Timothy: “I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand” (2 Tim. 4:6). Some might say that Paul had failed to accomplish his goals and that his life was ending in defeat. But he saw it differently: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (v.7). He looked forward to an eternal crown (v.8).

As we walk with God, we can praise Him for His faithfulness—win or lose.

I can always count on God, my heavenly Father,
For He changes not; He always is the same.
Yesterday, today, forever, He is faithful,
And I know He loves me, praise His holy name! —Felten

In every change He faithful will remain. —Katharina von Schlegel

Read: 2 Timothy 4:1-8

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. —2 Timothy 4:7
Bible in a year:
Numbers 23-25; Mark 7:14-37

LOL! Just as I was watching that baby laughing (that you posted the link to), the very same video came on my Fox Affiliate channel on tv - so I had giggling in STEREO this morning!

Happy Tuesday, JC!

Such a beautiful graphic this first day of March! And I love that song...always have! I have it on my Bobby Darin and Rod Stewart CD’s. I sure miss people like Dean Martin and his gang.

Thank you all.

Hi yorkie! I had seen it twice on Fox this morning and I had a huge smile each time. You can't watch that and not smile or laugh. Isn't it funny what babies will laugh at? I hope you are in for a great day. After I fix some pancakes for myself, I am dressing and going straight to the Courthouse to pay those taxes...(as much as I hate to.)

I was so tired last night and practically passed out sleeping. I think a day of frustration and worry about the weather yesterday just wore me out, physically and mentally! Thank goodness, the sun is shining brightly today but its about 32 degrees. It will warm up some.

I would think it may not be a good idea, bert! LOL! One of my Amy’s buddies who lives in Texas, said they haven’t had rain since September. Isn’t that amazing? She told of a car accident happening because of low visibility and a little 5 year old was killed in the accident, plus others!

I meant to explain the low visibility was from smoke from the fires they were experiencing.

2 Timothy 4
Preach the Word
1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at[a] His appearing and His kingdom

: 2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long suffering and teaching.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;

4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

Watch out for the thorns. Painful indeed to pierce a finger or nose, or hand with the thorns of a rose bush.

So easy to do. Many lovely things are painful to be in close proximity thereof.

Thanks, Jaycee. I love to watch videos of some of the old Dean Martin shows. They are classics.

It is sad to see how many great entertainers we have lost. I watched part of the Oscars and it was so obvious that today’s stars cannot compare to the legends.

"Windflowers" by J.W. Waterhouse (1903)

Blow, Wild March Wind
by William Wilsey Martin (1885)

Blow, wild March wind! In hollows of the lea,
In copses low, thy bride awaiteth thee—
The timid, saint-like, white anemone.
She will not show her face, though woo’d by kings,
Till o'er her beat the pulsings of thy wings.

Blow, wild March wind! that we her face may see,
Through pine-clad gorges by our northward sea,
Through English woodlands where the blackcap sings.
Blow, wild March wind!

She lifts her face. The answering passion stings
Her veined leaves, at the rough kiss he brings.

Sing round her bridal couch thy melody,
Thy breath is life to her. Apart from thee
She droops and dies, the frailest of frail things—
Then blow, March wind!

Has it gotten any warmer now that March has arrived?
It has been so cold here but it should start warming up a little.
