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

December DAILY

My good blog friend, Susan, at By Grace is doing something
I am going to try and participate in.
Will you JOIN US ???
It is called *December Daily*
It consists of posting everyday in December.
Mine won't be deep or profound....maybe a bit
of pot-luck...quotes...just easy posts...for your
December enjoyment.
Remember, you can do them ahead of time and schedule them to
post on the day you want....
I just thought some of you might want to take the challenge.
Let me know...or let Susan know...or both....
This kind of posting is a challenge I know...but well WHY NOT?
Take a break from your baking....

my mom would be so proud

This is a rectangle Granny Afghan
I have started. I have made several in the past.
The thing is.....my mom would always have
to start it for me. I would then go round and round
I couldn't get the hang of reading the instructions.
My mom is in Heaven now. I found the directions
and gave it a try. My mom would be so proud.
I haven't gotten it finished, but I will.
I put it on a basket to show you
That is my Christmas tree in the background.

Will you join me in this?

Then PRAY some more !!!
You most likely know what is going on the
the senate....
I am not scared on a personal level,
but I am afraid for *My country*
Maybe a better word would be
Oh, do we need the Lord to get ahold
of the hearts of our leaders.
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

We have allowed those who could
care a less about anything but $$$
enter our homes and break down our morals."
The above is just a snippet...
IT is WORTH your time...

fun, friends and update

This is Webkinz.
To play for a year all it takes is ONE pet.
The games are safe, the interaction is great and
some of the games even are tough on me.
I can play against my grandkids, nephew and nieces.
You can find Webkinz so CHEAP.
I am enjoying doing it.
I like challenging WORD games so this is fun.
The variety is almost endless.
I could have taken a zillion pictures of different things.
You get the idea.
The GANZ company makes sure that this is so SAFE.
This is one of my pets..
This game is sort of like Boggle
I have won the top prize 3 times
Love challenging my mind to spell and think
This is arcade. You can play games
with those you KNOW and approve.

Lots of things to do in here..
So safe, no idle chatting.
All phrases are *canned* you
cannot divulge any information
even if you wanted to.
SAFE !!!
One of my pet's gardens
You design these yourself and can plant gardens
You can invite approved friends over to visit you
This is a room I made for some of my pets.
I made it this way....because...
I like to sleep in a COLD ROOM !!!
Since you asked.
My foot is healing...I am walking.
My knee is very slowly getting better.
my BACK...
way before surgery I had 3 visits for Cortisone injections.
Well, that is the rough thing. All of this has made the back MUCH worse.
I will start hyrdotherapy next week.
oh I hate to share this.
On Wednesday I was wrapping gifts. I was curling ribbon with my
my medium size SHARP FISKAR scissors..
they flew out of my right hand...and instead of letting them
stab me in my leg...I tried to grab them.
I got a cut in my palm, but worse than that
they have injured something that makes my pointer finger and middle
finger hurt so bad and seem stiff and swollen.
I am NOT going in, not yet.
I am not ready to have them immoibilize it.
I believe it is just bruised.
Silly me....but I am right handed and have little strength in it right now.
So there you have it, TMI ?
So many of you asked.
I tell you...it has been a year.
but it could be WORSE,
Jesus is coming soon
and HE has allowed all of this for HIS GLORY and my Growth.
This I know to be true.

good morning blog friends

This was the view from a window in my home,
this morning. It was even more redish in person.
ohhhh.....it made me think of this:
Mark 13:26
And then shall they see the Son of man
coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
I am sorry I have been SOOO absent
from blogland.
THANK YOU for your emails, prayers,love....
I start physical therapy today for my *knee*
it's a long and VERY boring and frustrating story.
I believe that using the drug L e v a q u i n
is what has caused all of this...and continues to do so.
My story is like many mentioned here
The pain is draining.
Do your own homework on the drug and include
I am not a professional, I just know how bad I hurt !!!
Just trusting the Lord

This morning I was ALMOST all the way ready for Sunday School and Church. I sat down in my recliner and noticed a swelling in my left foot I have never had. It has me concerned, so I missed today and I am now elevating and icing it..hoping it goes down and I can go this evening. I was sooooo disappointed.
So ....
instead I listened to a teaching by S.M. Davis. And I JUST "know" there is someone(s) out there that "needs" to hear this. So please...it is less than a hour, the time will fly. You will be blessed and HELPED....yes helped !
It is titled "Knowing when to Let Go"
