Thankful Thursday

In a moment in time a perspective can be altered or illuminated. How we see a thing can be changed in an instant.
It can simply be a movement to one side or a "light bulb moment".
We stand amazed.
such was the case with this image.

I am grateful that even if my view is foggy I can still enjoy the beauty.
This a gift, a a gift made transparent through beauty.

Glee is a child in a tree

Cause ya know they just NEED to be climbed to be happy trees.

I did Not have to testify today the trial is postponed until the 9th of December.

Dove has set to create these pretty paper crafts. She learned this skill from another little girl in her class.

We attended the Grand parent/parents visitor day at her school for her class today. She had 4 family members show for her. Both grandparents and both parents. So many kids were so sad that there folks were not there.

Dash was awesome awesome yesterday.

He was so happy to have all of us there. Yes it does matter. As the Daddy man says..."A father matters". He took off time for each child both yesterday and today. We are able to do this for he has so many vacation hours that if he does not use them he will lose them.
What better way to use them than to be there for the kids.
Its the day to day not the Disneyland every year that gets our focus. Those trips would be great but I am so grateful to have those times of the day in day out availability for the kids.

Do you see him?
I was informed of his presence by beloved as he previewed the images of Dash. I did not even notice this litter guy.
I have hunted for him thrice and can not locate him.
These are my Early Girls

Over on this yard the Sweet peas are up

However they are suffering a bit for lack of water.
I do hope that they make it.

Too cute!

I am so delighted by the beauty of those things growing around my home.
Look at that color. I harvested all the spent flowers and split the dried bud for the seeds. I have a good cup of seeds. This crop of Marigolds have really enjoyed their time. I love the intense color. The size is huge for our area.

Now that's fall color!

This desert mallow? is flourishing.

The girls love to lay by the steps.
Today there was three. I have a new hen a laying.
Perspective...How we look at a thing.
His eyes have our best, view at heart

I enjoyed this post sweetie.

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."
