Fun Monday

Pamela is the hostess for this Fun Monday. She choose the topic. She said:I want to see what you see on any given morning this week; from somewhere very near where you live. Front porch, back porch, down the street, around the corner. Just makes sure it’s your neighborhood. Post a photo that will send me to the travel agent to book a weekend at your local Bed & Breakfast.

Every morning I make lunches for the family. These loving hands (a cleaner version of them) embrace me and I follow him out to the garage.

Where we bid each other a fine day and I see him drive off in this 4 runner alone on his way into his long work day. It is very warm here even now in October. Many "snow birds" will be flocking their way here shortly for the warm days and cool evenings.

My street looks like this only pirates are seldom witnessed.This is a shot of one such pirate. This is a late evening photograph. Our home is shaded while the sun set illuminates the end of the block.

Retuning indoors I feed these two so I can have a moment of peace with my son. With the exception of the dead of summer the outdoor fun is year round.

This is the yard he plays in while his sister sleeps every available moment she can, most days. I come out and swing on the hammock with him and we talk. Summer monsoons can green a lawn up pretty as do the sprinkler systems many homes have. It's just the water that the desert is running low on :)

Oh I'm getting a little jealous of so many of you talking about warm weather! We are cold here in Alaska already. You have a nice backyard!

I love your neighborhood. Marissa has several close friends she went to school who live there, and we would love to move into it.

Lovely family group shot.
I am so looking to some cooler weather.

I like the story with your photos. It looks like a lovely warm place. I am one of those who would relish a few warm days in the sun in winter, but that is not to be, so I enjoy the snow and go skiing. You have a beautiful neighbourhood.

That is awesome to include your family - and I love your street. I am definitely going to miss the "suburbia" when I move...

And you have a GREAT backyard!

You have a nice street. I love the hammock.

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
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
