The face behind the blog. Meme

Married one year 1983 gown is snug because I was fed. :)

Camping trip 1984. I don't hunt the gun was for protection. We were in the wilderness. Hubby probably was going off to do his business.

Biking trip 1984. I was raised on two wheel motorcycles. Bet you didn't know that.

Our "race car" dun buggy the first one we owned taken in 1984.
In my Glory Days :) Before the kids we had a lot of fun this way. Due to funds being tight we have had to let go of these things. It is too bad we had so much fun. I would love to do these things with the kids.

Taken this year.

Will keep praying for Denise and her husband. Thanks for the update.

Loved seeing the pictures that you shared. :) Sometimes I regret being an anonymous blogger because it prevents me from participating in fun memes like these. Oh well, I was happy to read yours!

By the way, I loved the "little women" adoption button at the top of your blog so I followed it back to the source and added it to mine too. Hope you don't mind! :)

Take care!

rainier cherries can hardly be beat when they are in season. They just pop in your mouth like a little sweet bomb.

Dear Overwhelmed. Thanks for your visit. I don't mind. It is so pretty I just had to post it. I am an adoptive Mom and all.

Dear Corey, Thank you My smile was hard won with 14 root canals and a lot of hard times. With a life like I have with my Beloved the smile is from deep within and all real.

Shannon, Thank you I am flattered you would compare me to your dear Mother.

Lady Ametra, I left it for your on your site.

You are so beautiful.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
