Thankful Thrusday

Thoughtful kindness
it wrapped me up
words so sweet tied me in a bow
Sent through the air like a song on the wind
it was a serenata to my soul

Thank you for all your kind comments.

Seeing all those years of my life
gave me a day paused in anger of it all.
I suppose it is in that, a gift of strength
I was given
not a pleasant day for me...

I pushed through the day
This my goal
I found every trinket
a symbol of life
Those days that I knew.

While I was out with the family the night before they took me to the
Hobby lobby
All charms 50% off so I got 8 of them (2 for a $1.50)
The rest were a collection acquired over so many years.
So yesterday just for me I set to task
With a broken pliers
I pressed on, 6 hours I spent doing...
No chores no duties
just sat and created this
My gift to me.

Dove called it all of my talents
She is so perceptive it really nailed it.

I have been nursing this burn on my wrist all week.
WoW it is a painful wound!

On tuesday afternoon my children took the phone into the bathroom
A covert opperation
Hubby comes home half an hour early...

Well I ,(embarrased) grab the chicken out of the refrigerator and put it in the sink to prepare to bake it.
He reaches over and touches my hand...

The kids and I thought we would take you out for your birthday tonight, instead of tomorrow...

When asked what I would like for my gift I tought ...
Well I do have a tree in the budget for the yard...We need a tree...
We went to three nursery's...all were closed.

When we were on the way to get a meal out... in conversation...
Steve proceeds to tell me of a radio show where a business just gave all of their employees a 10% raise!
The company much like us were living on the principles of NO DEBT...Hobby Lobby!
My heart flipped!!!!
Hobby Lobby! He looked at me and I blushed...he asked "would you like to go there instead for your birthday gift?"

Oh. Oh. Oh! yes I would!
So off we traveled, to our surprise we were only about a mile from there.

Steve took the kids for a walk,
I got to just peruse the store for a good 45 minutes,
choose what I might like for my birthday...
This is what I chose.

It was so cool all of this 50% off!
Within my self imposed budget.This is for my pans.
My back is so sore sometimes getting down to get them out from under...
It is not an easy thing when you can not bend down on your knees.
We had talked of looking into one of these some day.

Isn't she beautiful!

These for the front door
When we had our house before this it was a Victorian (Edwardian) decor.
I missed the doorway I had created and this is my way of saying "this is my home".

Thank you for the sweet cards...
I had a better image but it showed too much :}

This morning a child's mom stopped by to say hello.
She is old of work so I shared some food with her.
We had a nice cup of coffee together.
Please pray for her family, her mother had a lung removed Monday and she is having complications.
We do not share the same faith, yet we are able to enjoy each other.
She really likes me a lot and like to take tame and be with me.
If We can shine "light " into each other.
I know where my light comes from...
She respects that and still enjoys being with me...perhaps one day.
I do show her and her culture respect and do not provoke a divisive "re-action" to our difference.
We are able to have a level of mutual respect and pleasant conversation.

I puzzle her. She does not understand my resiliency.
When she has ear I will make it much more clear to her.
It was a nice time of mutual support.
She had gifted me this box.

two days ago I had one in hand at the dollar store.
I told God that I would let him supply it;)
I told he I had done so.
It meant a lot to her.
HIS ways are above ours.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!
Excuse me , but I just got a call from my BIG brother .
He called to wish me HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!
It has been many many years (6 yrs) sence we have spoken!
He then had to excuse himself to call me right back for he got a work related call..
I better get off of here for when he calls back.

He called back and we had a great talk.
Wow He loves me...

Thankful on this Thursday!

Glad you had a wonderful day and I am still in grief that I did not know.......... What is a friend if not someone there to help blow out the candles...

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
