A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

The furnace

I read this when I was reading my Bible this morning:
Isaiah 48:10
Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver;
I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.
This brought me comfort
maybe it will you too ?

They arrived here this evening.
We fixed Rib-eye, Baked Potatoes, Broccoli
so thankful for your prayers.
These are two of my grandsons
that are on their way back home after
living on the East Coast....I am counting the days.

~~ will you join me ?

See this family ?
Would you help me out?
They are coming back to Washington State.
This mom, mother-in-law, and Nana is so excited !
Well, they are on the road officially from the East Coast.
They have many many miles. They are both driving.
So would you join me in praying for my daughter and her
sweet family as they return home ? I am sad for their many
friends they said "see you later too", but oh so happy to have them
close by once again. You know when your friends are Christians
there are no forever good-byes.
I will let you know when they arrive.
Thank you dear blog readers.
PS....thank you for the sweet comments and emails
since I have returned to blogging more. I appreciate them so much

I would wear a hat

Today I saw this picture I had saved. I can't tell
you where I got it, but it sure put a smile on my face.It just looks appealing to me. I don't think it is the aspect of wanting to
"take-off "or "runaway" but just to feel the GLEE that these two ladies do.
I wouldn't want to do something irresponsible,
just maybe a little lighted-hearted jaunt or even a little road trip with a friend. I don't think I would even need a map,
I do like the thought of a convertible....maybe even a hat.
Yes, I would need a hat as my hair would be a MeSs !!! I just think it looks fun, that is all. I have VERY fond memories as a child of lots of road trips.
I have great memories as a wife, mother and as a empty nester,sister and friend.
Yes my life has consisted of many,many,many hours on the road.
Many days on the road.I Hope the Lord allows some more, if not, that is okay. I will smile at pictures and cherish memories.....

not in my yard, please

This is our new grass that was put down and
has lovingly been watered by me. This young
mom loved it here. Sure she is sweet, but I am sorry
I do not want anyone messing with this grass.

Tucked underneath her wings were three little babies.
I still don't want them on my lawn. Don't they
know I don't play Farmville anymore?

My beloved had to do a light sprinkling of the hose
to get her out of her comfort zone, my new lawn.

"Fine,"she said..."we will find a new home."
Aren't they just so sweet, though ? I thought so.
Stay tuned hope to REALLY get blogging again....

it is everywhere

It's everywhere....it is called:
Scotch Broom
It is a weed and you can see it everywhere you look.
It was brought to this area many years ago
but it is now illegal to use as a garden shrub or to plant
more of the seeds. People hate it. When it is
not blooming it is a really ugly plant.

My husband loves when it blooms
as, yellow is his favorite color.
....it is deceptive isn't it.
Kind of like SIN...
Those are my thoughts this morning.
