Need Blogger Help

Can you tell me where you find so many wonderful, graphics and pictures that are free and allowed...

Not quite sure on all of this...I appreciate any help or advice on this.....

ALSO...thought that you might enjoy the picture of the plum tree out in my backyard.....the picture was taken earlier this Spring.

Finding Balance

As a new blogger.....I am having a problem of spending way to much time reading other blogs.....the first thing I want to do in the morning is to turn on my laptop.
I am being very convicted that the FIRST reading of my day should be my time in the WORD.....

So I am going to have to work at putting first things first....bet I will end up having MORE time... GOD is like That !

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these thing shall be added unto you" Matt 6:33

Ron and Marie

I love my friend Marie...she has taught me how to Rubberstamp. More than that, she has truly been a loyal friend and confidente. We now live about 15 minutes from each other. It is a breathe of fresh air to go to her house, to take in the beauty of her grounds,her country way of decorating and of course being licked to death by Lily, her Yorkie. Her husband Ron is a solid sort of guy.....you can tell they were meant for each other. Ron and Marie love each other it is evident.

Today I went there for Stamp Club....as I drove up Ron was taking pictures of his yard, a-bloom.....it just looked so *lovely*.....I asked him to email the pictures to me for you all to experience......

So enjoy....my time today reminds me of this quote:

"These things do I love: Old things, old places, Remembered things and familiar faces."

I don't know who said it....but I love that saying.....

Ron, Marie....I love you both. You have been a blessing in my life .....THANK YOU !!!

What to THINK on

A check list for your mind...what are you mulling over, what are you watching, what are you listening to? Does it line up with the following ?

Philippians 4:8Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.

A great teaching site

I was told about this site from my Pastor.

In the past months I have been questioning some of the things that I allow and do in my life....I am asking GOD to show me my sin. IT is NOT easy.....it is part of the journey.

I would like to share this site with you:

I don't think any of us will agree with all the teachings on ANY given site..but like I have heard before......eat the watermelon, spit out the seeds....

So far I listened to the one by :
**The Language of a Chrisians Clothing**

I know some of you who read this blog...THINK you know what this teaching is about...but I challenge you...to take a few minutes....actually...almost a hour...and listen.....I think he hits the nail on the head .

Don't we as Christians just want to be WHO the Lord wants us to be...and to be willing to be changed...it is a matter of the heart.

as a PS:
IT has been 3 years today, that my dad, Billy Ray Vaughn went home to be with the Lord.......I miss you dad !!!! I look forward to seeing you one day....and mom and Billy too (that is my younger brother and my mom...both in Heaven for a little over a year)

True Feminity

True Femininity

Is it curling the hair
Or painting the face?
Pinning on bows,
Pink ribbons and lace?
Flounces and frills,
Bracelets and rings?
Polishing nails?
Is it all of these things?

No, you can't pin it on
Like a bow in the hair.
You can't put it on
Like the garment you wear.
It's deeper than ornaments
Gracing the skin.
For true femininity
Comes from within!

It glows from a heart
That is gentle and kind,
A soul that is chaste,
An honest, pure mind.
Without inner goodness
How futile the bows,
For "pinning on petals"
Can n'er make a rose!

This is our pooch Chloe......she sits by me as I type with my laptop on my lazy-boy recliner....

We love her and will admit that she is spoiled.....

A Reminder,My Goal

Proverbs 31:10-31

10 "Who can find
a virtuous woman?
for her price is
far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband
doth safely trust in her,
so that he shall have
no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good
and not evil
all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool,
and flax,
and worketh willingly
with her hands.
14 She is like
the merchants' ships;
she bringeth her food
from afar.
15 She riseth also
while it is yet night,
and giveth meat
to her household,
and a portion
to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field,
and buyeth it:
with the fruit of her hands
she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins
with strength,
and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that
her merchandise is good:
her candle goeth not
out by night.
19 She layeth her hands
to the spindle,
and her hands
hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out
her hand to the poor;
yea, she reacheth forth
her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of
the snow for her household:
for all her household
are clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself
coverings of tapestry;
her clothing is
silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known
in the gates,
when he sitteth
among the elders
of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen,
and selleth it;
and delivereth girdles
unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour
are her clothing;
and she shall rejoice
in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth
with wisdom;
and in her tongue
is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well
to the ways
of her household,
and eateth not
the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up,
and call her blessed;
her husband also,
and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters
have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful,
and beauty is vain:
but a woman
that feareth the LORD,
she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit
of her hands;
and let her own works
praise her in the gates."

A Favorite Poem

This poem reminds me of my mom and dad's house......

Overheard In An Orchard

Said the Robin to the Sparrow
"I would really like to know
Why these anxious human beings
Rush about and worry so."

Said the Sparrow to the Robin
"Friend I think that it must be
That they have no Heavenly Father
Such as cares for you and me."

--Elizabeth Chaney - 1859

Verse of the week.

I am memorizing a verse of the week with my friend Debby...so if you would like to join us I will post it on MONDAY....

Psalms 119:11
Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee.

Yes..it might be a easy one....and you might know it..but like me...I did not remember where it was......

This is the first verse as a reminder of WHY...we memorize scripture...to keep us from SIN....

HIS name is wonderful

Last night at Revival Bro. Schwanke spoke on *His Name is Wonderful*......He spoke on how Jesus is the Bible and the Bible is Jesus. He gave us a verse for every book in the Bible...I could barely keep up with the list. What is so amazing to me is how he *knew* these all......wow...to have a memory like that and also to know the WORD of God like that....What conviction. This morning after my Bible time..I went to the front of my Bible and wrote the verse next to the Book of the Bible. Lo and behold I missed one. Tonight I will ask Vonnie.

I am going to type up the list next week. If you would like a copy email me at:

This is our last night and we are going to decide which CD's we want to buy...think it is going to be a hard choice.

Can never have to much...

Lord, Help me to be a DOER of your WORD!!!!!

Tuesday, May 15, 2007


WOW....are we having a great revival at our church...here is the link to our Evangelist:


He is Paul Schwanke.....I totally recommend that you order some of his CD's....you will be admonished, encouraged and blessed.

Can't wait for tonight.

It is from this scripture:

Proverbs 25:11

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
