Each Day A Gift

"Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits."
Psalm 68:19

Lord, each day is a brand-new gift unspoiled, unblotted.
Help me to be inwardly open to what You have for me today.
In Christ name I pray

The Sun Was Warm

So I went for a little walk around yesterday:
this is what I found.

 This plant is a trooper --This hyacinth is going to bloom.
It  just want give up.
This was out side some steps at the back of the pool.
 In a flower bed are these reminders of heaven.
My grandmother had a big picture of this.
The little children were crossing a bridge.
She said the angles watch over us , and I believed her.
Have a good day!

Cold As Heck

Down at the pool this morning, the water was not very warm.
Silly me complaining, never had a pool must less and indoor one.
We had six lady's that came ,some have dropped out to cold from them.

The Pool

 Yesterday at Jason's Deli I had a big Salad
 With French Onion Soup so good.
After I posted about my "Happy" sink problems, I then read other post.
I saw where poor Far Guy  was in deep back up drain trouble.
Made me feel bad with all the happy, happy I had posted.
Far Side said they did get things fixed, so glad for them they had lots of help.
After we came back from lunch The Bennie Called again about our sink.
They came about 4:00 and put in a new garbage disposal ( the Bennie just watched 
the man work). Bless his pea pick in heart.

He Is Our Guide

"I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which
thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye."
Psalm 32:8

Lord, I am unworthy of all the kindnesses You have showered
upon me in the past. I thank You for Your great love to me. Help
me to trust You for what I need.
(In Christ name I pray)

Today Is

"Happy Religious Freedom Day"

Congress established January 16 for honoring America's first freedom.
The Virginia Statue Establishing Religious Freedom in 1786.

In 1993, the same year our nation celebrated its first official Religious Freedom Day.
 Congress passed another landmark bill, this federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
As an expression of our gratitude for the blessings of liberty and as a sign of our resolve 
to protect and preserve them.

This March, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear its next RFRA case. It involves 
the religious right of nuns who care for the elderly poor.
The Supreme Court's decision will determine whether RFRA continues
to shield the religious practices of today's minorities from undue
 government intrusion.

Frank and Cloody
Pray for our Supreme Court !

What A Day

We went to get our drivers license changed from Arkansas to 
Tennessee. We had proof of address but NO that was not good enough.
My photo was on the Arkansas license but they said I had to have my birth
certificate or passport for proof  of citizenship.  When did Arkansas
 become not part of the U.S.A.
Look what I found looking for my birth certificate, my first grade
card from 1941 when I had gotten a smallpox immunization to go to school.
I think it was all because I am so white with blue eyes and I may have been living
In Arkansas Germany.
Anyway this is not the country I grew up in any more.

After the Storm

 I had to get out of the house, so what could I do but
take these photo's of where I now live. Did you see what I see?
God is good.
I live in the red brick that you see on the other side of the cars.

Sunday' Garden Column

Said many spring plants that have come up or bloomed
because of how warm our December was, will not bloom 
come spring.
 This is what I found yesterday, Hyacinths
There nose peeking up

 Flower heads on these.
They said some Narcissi and Daffodils have bloomed.
We have now had some days in low 40's but nights low 30's
some hard frost. I hope these little things make it.

Comfort, Quietness And Calm

"Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest."

O God of all comfort, bring quietness and calm to hearts worried 
about what the day may bring.

In Christ name I pray
