Wow a surprise!

After Supper Tonight My beloved asked to see the work I had done on the front entry (he comes in through the garage) I thought wow how sweet of him to think to go check it out. When he opened the door and stood aside(as he is a gentleman through and through) I stepped out with my gaze turned back to him, then I looked to watch where I was going and behold!
With girlish glee I jumped up and down. How delightful! how very thoughtful!
Beloved said" I haven't done any thing like this for some time, so I thought I'd get it for you."

We moved the planter over to cover the side.
He got me a 75 foot hose too. A new hose! The other one kept kinking and leaking. He had replaced the end on it two times. This new set up is a 3/4 inch hose it is beautiful!
I worked in gas stations growing up so I have had my share of coiling hoses. This has a sweet handle crank and coils it right up out of the walk way.

Look how nice it looks on the walk way. No more hose all coiled and kinked.
Wow! That was so sweet!
When I first saw it it was still in the packaging with the hose on top of it. He set it all up and now it is so compact. It seconds as a stool also.

Isn't it funny how when we grow up the simple things can get us so excited. I need a new one of these since mine the hose that connects it pops off all the time.

'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"
