Tackle It Tuesday

Good Morning!
After tackling 2 pain pills I had a 13 hour tackle of my pillow.
Sleep does a body good.

The garden watering was cared for by a delightfully divine thunderstorm that lasted all night.

Can you see the little white wing dove in the picture. She walked around the house to the other side peacefully.

Off to the west the storm has already dissipated.
It is still dark in the East. I am hoping for a nice cloudy day.

The bails are well soaked as well as the plot.

This morning I awoke to the warning call of May Bell (Mabel) the chicken. She was frightened of the feeder. I watched her and she was warning all the others. I went out and moved it but saw nothing. Then I heard the large flapping of wing and looked up but saw nothing. I think there may have been a hawk on the roof above me.
Good ol' May Bell sounded for us. :)
She is the one standing on the feeder.

What a wonderful good soaking.

The girls are in the wet. I need to put out a spot for them to sit.

My dream in tacked.
The children set out these things to collect rain water.
I find it easier to teach children than Mr U. sometimes:)
He is not quit sold on the rainwater harvesting idea.
I learned that in Colorado it is against the law to collect rain water.
I would love to begin this system.

Today will be a day of balence.
I will gingerly care for my knee today. It is very tender.
When you hit your elbow and it just is agony for a moment while it goes away. my knee hurts that way but it does not fade.
I am taking a good rest.
My garden has been watered so I will do simple easy tackles.
I made beloveds lunch easily, handing him that $10 bill I had in my purse.
I think I may do the same for the children today. My leg is most important!
That is what is nice about conserving as a normal way of life. Once in a while if you buy out it is a real treat. For them and for me.
The children are giggleing and playing sweetly.

Getting rest is a great tackle! Wish I could do that one! lol I keep meaning to set out buckets and such to collect & use rainwater, and keep forgetting.

Loks like a nice refreshinbg storm.

Where i live we are safe from floods. But many rural areas are inundated.Hundreds of people have died and property destroyed. A very grim situation.

How do you protect the chicken from the rain. Do you have acovering for the coop?

• 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
