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

My brother

This is my brother Lorin and my nephew (my sister's son)
Lorin has been battling brain cancer for about a year and 1/2.
He is now on Hospice Care.
Please pray for his wife Brooke, our family,
especially my sisters , Susie and Lisa (Blessed A Latte')
who live in the same town and are very involved in his care.
Lorin is Lisa's twin....
I live about 45 minutes from my family, due to fatigue
etc...I am not able to visit as much as I would like.

Stitching lately

I have discovered that you cannot stitch and blog at the same time.
How's that for a *DUh...moment*
So here you can see the Tea Towels I have done lately.
I used varigated threads. I like the look. The rose one was given to
my friend Rose (see her house two posts below)
I have been busy, right now ,I am giving myself a small break from
cleaning out my pantry....it is looking so neat and tidy.
Hope you are having a good Monday.

my kitchen changes

This is my shelf wall in my kitchen now.
WHITE, white...I love it.
I love that I can really put anything with it.
IT is a slow work in progress and more pictures will
follow one day!!!...Not sure when
I love the change and I am thankful for my husband, who is
my painter.

I am loving the softness and lovely look of this.
I have even changed things around a bit since this picture

Got this shelf from a yard sale...$10.00
I see it with lots of potential

Old kitchen COLORS....my husband has repainted the whole
kitchen , WHITE....I am accessorizing with some red, some pink,
some whimsy, what I like and what I FIND CHEAP...CHEAP....
and in no rush....

Rose's House

Did you ever walk into someone else's house and just feel at home and love it ? Well, the other day, Rose from church had some blackberrys she had picked that she was giving to me. Yummmmm...didn't take me long to drive to her house.I walked in....and could not believe what I saw...a PINK KITCHEN....I was so excited !!!! Her house is beautiful and holds a lifetime of memories. She showed me many of the quilts she made and also many other things she made . We had a cup of coffee together in her beautiful china with homemade cookies served on a china sandwhich plate. I felt like I was in a Grace Livingston Hill book. I so enjoyed this afternoon surprise. It was a blessing getting to know her better. Rose and her husband go to my church. They are wonderful Christians. Did I mention she is a tad bit over 80. Oh, is this woman an example to me of what a Christian Woman is.She is industrious, she shows hospitality, cherishes her husband and was a example to me.I hope to spend some more sweet time with Rose and learn more things about being a Godly wife, a better homemaker etc.....none of us have ever ARRIVED, especially me. As a woman being in my 50's I want to always be teachable. Isn't this the way it is supposed to be?
Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Sad day indeed

That day....like today...
Many woke up, went to work....
Not thinking it was their last day....
Then it was the horrific terrorist attack.
It could be a car accident
a heart attack....or just your time.
What is important for you in this day?
What is your priority?
WHY ??
These people took NOTHING with them....
I won't either
Neither will you....
I don't know who was saved
GOD does.
This I know
except, what we do for the Lord
Nothing ELSE matters except that we are HIS.
LIFE indeed is short.
Mark 8:36
For what shall it profit a man,
if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Computer WOES

My poor laptop, *Della* has been sick for a few days.
At first, I just didn't know what to do. I felt a bit lost...
tell me I am NOT addicted to this blogging thing a bit.
I am so thankful to my husband and son in law Mark for their
expertise. She seems to be feeling better, which makes me, her
mom, much happier. I have firewalls, anti-virus stuff, spyware stuff
yet, some savvy webset (????) let something attack my computer and it did not want to leave.
I wish I could say I used the mini-break to get things done in my home ... but the fibro bug too has been a bit much so both Della and I have not been feeling well.
In the scheme of things though......*oh well, this too shall pass* and it does not affect my eternity !!!...
I am so thankful for God's grace and love.
Praying for those potentially that might be affected by IKE...

I am ketchup

You Are Ketchup

You are easy going and very measured in your approach to life.
Popular and well liked, you get along with everyone.
Seriously, everyone loves you!
Your taste tends to be pretty mainstream American.
You go for the classic favorites: burgers, fries, and apple pie.
You get along best with mustard and mayonnaise personalities.

Psalms 139:23-24

Psalms 139:23-24
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me,
and know my thoughts:
And see if there be any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
