What did you do this weekend?

Our days were very pleasant. The day ended today with a wonderful visit to Steve's folks. (alright do not shoot me MIlove for posting it.) Your all just so beautiful!

I had to show you this amazing bonnet that my Sister made Dove when she was dedicated. She is a professional seamstress. This next week she is showing her works. It is called a trunk show in the world of sewing. The christening gown is also amazing. I'll try to get an image of it.

The satin is from my wedding gown.
It is a real special treasure of mine. The bonnet had been kept separate than the gown in a special box of treasures from Doves infancy. Including the clothing she wore home from Russia.

This has been the big project of last week. It and the arranging of some decor, or I should say rearranging. It has been fun to move back into this house. 

This week end we did a curb alert give away. The items were mostly taken by one fellow and his young son. No doubt to be sold for food and shelter bills. The side yard is within my vision. The flowers will get planted next week, Lord willing and time afforded.

Mr. Silly dog has found his way into a calmer place. The castration has made for a very tender relationship to emerge between him and the kids. This is Dash's room. See the love.

I stumbled upon this image of the same day.

Oh the memories of the time out corner
Dove did it too with our old dog. She was only two at the time.
Mr Silly dog is even giving the kids hugs. 

That dog is too smart! The other day I told the dog that if he keeps pestering me he may find himself with the choice to stay outside. That dog (no joke) turned around looked at me and walked out the dog door. I just about choked when I laughed at it. Oh the power of the spoken word.

Hope you all enjoyed your week end.

Now please remember Denise (Shorty Bear) she is in a world of hurt. She is facing blindness. Say a prayer for her if you please. Her FIL is also ill and real strain to her husband going through it all.

Remember also Denise (life at my house) She is finding her way after the death of both of her parents within a few months. She had been full time care giver for 8 years or so. Now she begins her own journey.

I posted over at A Place to Create. The link is on side bar.
It is good to be back.

• 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."
