Frank's Picnic Table

I tried to get him to send me a photo of his  picnic table  with the ice on it from the unusual storm they had in Houston yesterday. But he didn't, so I had to empervise.

It really wasn't this bad at all.

I never get tired of this photo. It was taken on a day in  February  when we went to visit Frank and Cloody.
It was like a spring day.

Pressing on Toward the Goal

Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing
I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press
on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward
in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13,14

The Bennie

Fixed dinner last night-So good
Mixed Vegetables and Shrimp Tempura
Recipe on Cooking 4 Love

Monday, January 20, 2014


We had a prowler in our back yard, it was about 1:30 in the morning and
The Bennie was awaken by the noise of talking and someone climbing our fence.
He got up and looked out saw a person coming around the house
where he had come over the fence. Brave Bennie? got dressed and went out
side, saw the person across the street coming back across to our house.
Bennie told him to stop and not to come up on him. The prowler had a black hoodie
on, he ran across the yard and went between the houses down the street
where they have no fence and you can go into the woods. 
Bennie came in and call the police. That is when I woke up .
3 patrol cars came and I was so proud of our men in blue,They on foot did a tense search
of the woods and field with powerful lights. They even drove the car in the field with their
search lights.  Sorry to say the prowler got away, so we think it was 
someone that lives in the neighborhood and went in their house.
 I just hope it scared them so bad that they will not do it again.

Peace of God

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Trivia and Humiliation Day

First let me do trivia.  Because who in the world wants to be humiliated?
A study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition concludes that green tea seems to activate the part of the brain associated with working  memory.
I was about to miss the point of humiliation Day until I did my Bible study last night.
We see a lot of arrogance -self center humanist today.
What we may be forgetting is how to have divine view point. Of humility and humble
Now this is piteous and  humiliation

A New Beginning

Forgetting the things which are behind  Phil 3:13

Forgetting ills behind me, the sorrows past and gone,

Forgetting all my wandering, too sad to dwell upon.

Remembering God's great goodness, in times of stress and strain.

Remembering, His restoring, I praise my God again.
