July, 2005, Closing Thread
(Sept 26, 2008)
Throughout my life, Ive accumulated a lot of stuff. I have boxes of things that at one time were important but over time have lost their intrigue. And, as an unrepentant collector, Ive realized that the thrill is in searching for and acquiring a new piece to add to the collection. Then my attention turns toward the hunt for the next item.
While we pile up many things that are important to us, very little of it is really precious. In fact, over time I have learned that the most precious things in life are not material items at all. Rather, its the people who have loved me and built into my life who are precious. When I find my heart saying, I dont know what Id do without them, I know that they are indeed precious to me.
So when Peter refers to Jesus as a chief cornerstone, elect, precious (1 Peter 2:6), it should resonate in our hearts that He is truly preciousour prized possession above everything and everyone else. Where would we be today without the constant unfailing companionship of His faithful presence, wise and perfect guidance, merciful patience, comfort, and transforming reproof? What would we do without Him? I cant even imagine!

Your lovely little doggie poem is the very reason I wear JEANS all the time!
I love this, Amy. Thank you and a Good May 1st Morning to you and your family. We wish we could see you more on “your place”. LOL!!
We’ve had a crazy spring....cold, etc. Even the weather reporters were discussing what crazy weather parts of the country were having. Its hardly been a warm enough day to sit outside a few minutes and its May!!! Seems I have to grab a jacket or sweater to go to grocery store or drug store. Of course, these stores keep their their thermostats to FREEZING. But even the outside weather has been crazy. I guess when the warm weather does get here, we can complain how hot it is.....LOL!
We would love to hear how your little (big) girl is doing. I’m sure she is growing up really fast. Give us an update sometime!!
She is a precious dog, Gail. Thanks for letting us see her!! She has such a sweet face!! How old is she?
May this month be kind to you and may you be kind to everyone that you meet. For you can help save a life just by the sweet words you speak!
Happy May First Everyone!
(Found this on the net.)
And Blessings back atcha, my FRiend!
We will have a high of 86 today..63 tomorrow..Crazy weather!
I fed my first raccoons in ages this week and had a gray fox drop by for a drink of water during the day Sunday.
Hope I see some babies this year.
Oh my goodness! A Maltese!
I used to have a Male Maltese named Odie, who rode my Harley with me. he had his own leather and patches.
He was Bad to the Bone.
LOL..They are pretty dogs.
Pretty, but Feisty! :-)
Also, their hair grows like a human’s, which means they need periodic haircuts so it doesn’t drag on the floor. LOL
Interesting..I am not familiar with this breed.
They go all the way back to Ancient Rome, and were lap doggies for aristocratic ladies.
Of course, Odie didn’t ride the Harley in my lap. He had his Own padded leather box on the back seat!
I have had 4 dogs in the last 40 years. Odie lived to be 17 and died in my arms. He was a good little guy.
What a precious dog and beautiful surroundings! This dog with all its hair would take a lot of brushing and grooming but well worth it I suppose!
I have to visit the eye doctor today. I’ve had my check-up already but have decided to get new frames, plus the lenses. Both of those costs an arm and a leg but its been a while since I had new frames. I saw some when I was there for my eye exam and hope I can find them again. I told the girl out there that situation and she said she would help me find them. (she thinks she remembers the ones I was looking at) The doctor will have to do the measurements, etc. and it will probably be a week before they will be finished but I’ve put it off long enough. Its just one of those things I put off but I do need to see a little better and that part has already been done.
So I guess I’ll be getting ready to go pretty soon!
See ya’ll later! Have a great day!
God blessed man when He created the faithful dog. They each us a lot when we pay attention and learn.
Thank thee Father for the many blessings we experience ever moment of every day, forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those that trespass against us in Jesus name, Amen.
this can not be thought on for too long
“Where would we be today without the constant unfailing companionship of His faithful presence, wise and perfect guidance, merciful patience, comfort, and transforming reproof? What would we do without Him? I cant even imagine!
Lord, help us not to focus on fleeting treasures but on
You, our most precious treasure. Teach us the joy
of reveling in You and Your loving presence
and provision in our lives.”
God is good let us thank Him for His love, mercy, kindness, healing, protection, goodness, compassion, etc., in Jesus name, amen
“Of all that is precious, Jesus tops the list.”
Thank you for our Beautiful New Thread.
She is So Sweet, Dear Gail!
Amy we understand. Life gets in the way.
We are in a huge battle here in NY so my time has been focused here plus my business is struggling with this disastrous economy.
I am going to have to hit the road for face to face visits in to fracking and drilling areas. Something has to change soon, real soon.
I need to leave for awhile; I will be back later.
It was sooo good to see all of you here today.
Libby is beautiful! Isn’t it amazing what we will tolerate with our fun kids? Love/peace/hugs
Miss Amy.. you are not able to get her much. And I am a hudred times worse.
Think of you, Missy and Mr.Just so very often. AND foldy I might add
I post my new thread on THE PORCH the first of the month and ALWAYS think of this thread.
My posting here is more than sorry. I know I miss a lot. I am still in OKC for winter. As I have no heat or power in the home in OHIO, I am being a fair weather commiter.home owner (well once I EVER do the probate).... to go when I know I wont have to be overly cold to work during the day & TRY to sleep at night
I think of you all so often and so fondly. Life has been powerfully strong and painful for many of my friends... losing lifemates, children, parents, limbs(diabetes), and so much more. I trust you will all trust He who gives you life and love..
My pups are doing well but I have found many ticks on Toby and need to start again the flea/tick applications. Molly the cat is being watched and loved by gal pal Karen in Ohio while I am in Oklahoma. This cat will NOT want to come home with me. Defining spoiled in a new way (.. yes, even a cat whisperer consultant/psychic).. tuna and crab (no not the cheap canned stuff... the real thing) ... her own room with TV, music, special beds, toys, catnip, massages from a cat masseur ( I KID YOU NOT). at my home she gets a bowl of dry food and promises of “maybe”.
The difference - all it takes is money
well, I do hope you are all coping with life’s challenges and opportunities. Sometimes hard but always growth in the process.
til next time
Lynn-DAH-The-Dog and Kitteh don’t mix.

To Diversity she’s blind
And on her behind
There ain’t no sticker dat says “COEXIST”.
A missionary recently visited the Bible study I was attending. She described what it had been like to pack up her household, part with friends, and relocate to a distant country. When she and her family arrived, they were greeted with a flourishing drug-trade and hazardous roadways. The language barrier brought on bouts of loneliness. They contracted four different stomach viruses. And her oldest daughter narrowly escaped death after falling through a railing on an unsafe stairwell. They needed prayer.
The apostle Paul experienced danger and hardship as a missionary. He was imprisoned, shipwrecked, and beaten. Its no surprise that his letters contained pleas for prayer. He asked the believers in Thessalonica to pray for success in spreading the gospelthat Gods Word would run swiftly and be glorified (2 Thess. 3:1) and that God would deliver him from unreasonable and wicked men (v.2). Paul knew he would need to open [his] mouth boldly and declare the gospel (Eph. 6:19), which was yet another prayer request.
Do you know people who need supernatural help as they spread the good news of Christ? Remember Pauls appeal, Brethren, pray for us (2 Thess. 3:1), and intercede for them before the throne of our powerful God.
Read: 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5
I am so glad to “see”you!
Love the bunnies.
Prayers for better days, (((Rus)))
Thank You, Mr. Mayor, for your Daily Ministry.
I appreciate today’s message! :-)
Crazy, huh! It dropped from 86 yesterday afternoon to 45 here at my house this morning. No telling what it is with the wind chill!
Colonel_Flagg dodged the snow, but it’s vewwy, vewwy chilly where he is in MN, too...or so I heard! ;)
I went out on the patio to fill the bird feeder and it felt much colder than the temp ..That wind is blowing!
(((HUGS))) Hope your shingles ordeal ends soon.
The wind here in the high desert has been gusting up to 40 mph, and the temps have dropped considerably, too.
Didn't someone promise us Spring?
Yes, and my kitties had a surprise when they went out, too...they were expecting more warm! LOL!
Thanks, Megs! I am totally surprised at how long they are hanging on and hurting. I thought I’d be back at work by now and I still can’t wear clothes that touch ANYWHERE the rash is. Ouch!
LOL! It has been very weird! We had friends from down the street who went to CO on a little road trip and they were snowed in! Talk about surprised! Needless to say, they were very glad to get back home! LOL!
Luv, I am so sorry to read that you have shingles! (I’m just now getting to read some of the past few days of postings!)
It is a very painful virus, and I hope you heal totally and soon! ((((HUGS))))
We had spring..all the bulbs and fruit trees have finished blooming and all the trees have leafed out..but then we get these cold spells..This one is really late for us.
I think this May snowfall is breaking records in some states.
Thank you, Yorkie! It is indeed painful and is lasting much longer than I ever thought it would. It’s been 2 weeks since I was diagnosed, and I still have the rash and all the “fun” things that go along with it. I wouldn’t wish this on my enemies.....
.....well, maybe obama.....*snicker*
Thank you, jaycee..
Hope you found frames you like.
