I got in the mail My grandmothers 1914 Bible and these pictures of her daughter. Look like this was taken 1920.

These are her daughters son's. The little girl could be my sister.
Picture must have been late 1930's. All in this picture are gone now, the boy on the left died early this year.
Thank you all for the prayers and wishes for The Bennie, He is doing good.

The Bennie said you need a new camera and this is it. He is so sweet or over come with Monday after black shopping day.
The technology of today can be very difficult to learn. You would think just point and shoot. But to get the computer and camera to work together was confusion, there are a collection of things I may not learn to use. The word
(CYBE-SHOT ) is scary. Could it be a sign of age?
The morning after the snow
Just look how the camera picked up the snow, wonder of wonders.

Today is cold but the sunshine is bright.

The weather man is telling us we may see some snow flake's today.
But it is much rain for pass 3 days, it has gotten cold.
What better way to pass the after holiday blues then do a fun puzzle.

Stay warm and happy!

Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.

Psalms 123: 3, 4

The Holly Tree
As, when all the Summer trees are seen
so bright and green,
The Holly-leaves their fadeless hues display
less bright then they,
But when the bare and wintry woods we see,
What then so cheerful as the Holly Tree?

From Robert Southey

I seam to have a fading memory about what I was to blog about today. So I can tell you ,I got my new 2012 inspirational calender.
And this is what it looks like around here now.
The voice of the Lord----strips the forest bare; and in His temple everyone says, "Glory" (Psalm 29:9 )
Now that is wonderful!

Though danger lurks on every side,
In Christ our Lord we will abide;
Our God is strong, our hope is sure--
In Him alone we are secure!
By Fitzhugh From "Our Daily Bread"

Due to its resemblance to a face, the name pansy is derived from the French word pen'ee meaning "thought". Also varieties that grow sometime look as though they are nodding forward in thought. The flower's meaning tends to be "you're in my thoughts".They maybe food for the rabbits now but they will come back in the Spring.
And to see them bright like little sun shine in the dark cold winter is joy.

Thank You Veterans!

Ready for winter and the cold winds that blow.
But this Knock -out rose bush just keeps on giving.
