Using only one word, how does grocery shopping make you feel?
I go without the kids. I meander and look for bargains and get inspired. I often think, pray and just zone out for a while
What is your favorite part about the season of Autumn?
I love to celebrate the bounty of the earth. I don't do Halloween, I celebrate Gods Provision.
Have you ever had any bad experiences online?
I was selling on E-bay and found that it was more of an expense than a profit.
Main Course
Name three things that make you happy daily.
My Husbands loving eyes and embrace.
My Children's wonder and wide eyed excitement over life.
Comments on the posts that let me know someone is out there.
What one household cleansing or organizing item would you not want to be without?
3 year calendar. I get them from Fuller brush/Watkins. I have used them for twenty years. They allow me to have life at my finger tips when my memory might fail to recall a detail or event in recent history (when was the last yearly apt for medical check ups or kids well visits). Pet shot record and general over all record of when, what who and where. I use them each year for the Christmas news letter. To schedule appointments, make note of upcoming bills of projects/goal.

Your three year calendar sounds heavenly! I love boxes with numbers in them. They call to me - "PLAN SOMETHING FUN, SOMETHING IMPORTANT -- ANYTHING!"

Have a great weekend!

Hello, Donetta,

How's your weekend going? Sorry I didn't get here sooner, we had friends come to visit unexpectedly last night, and this morning, the mother asked me to watch her daughter, while she needed to work.

Thank you for checking on Josh. I've been picking my kids up there for years. I found the parking lot to be to stressfull. It was really nice when Marissa was in 6th grade, and Josh was in K, she'd walk him across. And next year when Katelyn is in K, Josh will walk her across. In the winter, I have an hour before I pick Marissa up at her school, so I'll let them play and then pick her up. It works out really good.

I found the same thing about selling on E-Bay. Autumn is a wonderful time to celebrate and give Thanks.

Take care.

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
