Hello and happy Sunday to you!

Beautiful, sunny day here, 80's fahrenheit.

Hubby is doing well and he and I visited Mom IndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567today at the nursing home, who was in bed but appeared to be doing well.

............................

 

The scale weighed me at 146.2 this morning.

 

Thank you, each and every one for your comments....well...I'm fixing to reply!

Hope you are having a good day. Every day with the Lord IS a good day. Is He your Lord and Saviour? I hope so, cause He sure is mine! If He's not your Lord and Saviour, today is the day of salvation and there is NO TIME like today to get right with the Lord, Jesus Christ. Believe on Him, repent of your sins and ask His forgiveness. It is that simple. We are living in the last days and many will wish one day that they had chosen to live for Him while they were here on earth to do so!

 

Love, Maria

I took Daughteraround today looking for a job...she has been unemployed for quite some time.  She and I also visited Mom, who was very happy to see her while we were out.  We got back home and Daughter cleaned out a cabinet that I had been putting off and it looks really nice!  She and I are enjoying each others' company.

Good morning, Friends. 

Re:  Picture above...Along our journey here on earth of crossing one bridge after another, which some are interlinked in one way or another...are we in a HURRY to just simply get across?  Or do we take the time to admire the scenery along the way?  There are many things we can miss along the way if we run through our days in a hurry.  Remember that although we 'think' we will be MUCH HAPPIER once we arrive at our destination, that is NOT ALWAYS SO.  So maybe today, we should go a little slower and appreciate the beauty God has put around us.  That is my thought for today.

................

Daughter moved back in last nite.  We are happy to have her home and we all spending some family time together.

Scale weighed me at 147.4 this morning.

Hope you are doing well.

Hello, everyone...

Re:  the picture above...have you ever thought that life is like a series of bridges we cross over...we cross over one bridge (with the Lord's help) and then not long after there is another bridge to cross over...ever heard the old saying...'I'll cross that bridge when I get to it'...???...The good thing is...some bridges are WONDERFUL to cross and others...well...we may feel at the time that they are not so wonderful...but then again, being a Christian, I thank the Lord that He is always there to help...I think about the picture entitled 'Footprints' and the message written on it, too, telling us that there are times in which He CARRIES us...  Truly, what would we do without Him?  That is my thought for today and I am giving the Lord the praise, glory, and the thanks!

 

.......................................

Recently, Hubby and I were at the local farmers market and we bought a purple Crepe Myrtle and set it out and it, along with the other flowers have been getting a lot of rain lately.  Even my fav, the Orange Daylillies (hollow-centered) have begun blooming again (usually bloom May and part of June), a special treat!

.................................................

Scale weighed me today at 147.8, same as it did yesterday.

You are SO right, Maria. I am GLAD to have a dishwasher. I'm sorry that didn't come though on my post. I don't take for granted that I am blessed with many conveniences. I haven't always had a dishwasher and I still prefer to do my pots and pans and certain things by hand. I am thankful for the fact that we live comfortably and that I have a job, still!
