Company Pick Nick

Saturday was held the annual that brings families together to have a day of fun. How blessed we are to work where even in this economy a tradition continues.  The kids climbed the wall.
Guess what?! I even gave it a try.
Only a few feet up, but funny thing was once I tried it several other adults began to stand in line for a turn. I get a real kick out of how that is. It often happens that way. Seams I have always been a bit of a trail blazer.

 That was as far as I got. 
Sure was inspiring though.
Look at me a knee brace (that is awesome) and over weight yet I overcame the fear of what others would think or say about me. That really felt good to get a stronger vision of my sense of self. We did not mingle at all, that is the way it is with my sweet man. We watched the kids and sat around with little to discuss. Sorta boring that way really. Perhaps if we are able to have a few more adventures this summer we might just have a thrill to make a memory over. Something new to talk about.

It was good to get over myself and just try it.
 That's our four in the center

 The company volley ball championship was held. Between games the sand was wet by a sprinkler while the kids ran though it to cool off. It hit 98*. Steve and I were just heat tired.

Even Steve got into the act.

How fun!!! My husbands company puts on a real nice company picnic and I really dont like going it's always the same ol same ol, serious...even the same kind of food and I really dont know anyone, they all have their own little groups, you can tell the ones that do things outside of work and my husband and I dont get in cahoots with co workers, my motto " The less they know about our personal life the better, NO room for gossip" You are a brave one to climb that rock wall....


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
