I saw the rainbow in the midst of it all

Wow a lot has been going on here. My wrist will get xray today to see if a break is there.  

Post script...No break just joint damage, 
if not better in two weeks a cortisone shot.
Yesterday I met with the knee surgeon. On August 8th I will be getting a full knee replacement. That is if my wrist is not broken. Due to the knee cap scar tissue the minimally invasive is out of the question.

My greatest efforts are to keep in mind all of the things I have witnessed God do. That will get me through the challenges to come. Turning 50 this year has met the goal. No longer does my knee work however so it is time. My brace keeps me from falling when it locks up. A cane has been helpful too.

On notes of joy...We were rained on yesterday! Yes in June. It was a bazaar cloud in the blue sky. It was 4 inch drops! Just enough to wet the car thoroughly and the sidewalks. Later when we came into our community it happened again. I stood out in the heavy rain while the kids took the groceries in for me. Dash returned to enjoy it with me. There was a wonderful rainbow too. It had verga (rain that does not hit the ground) through it. Just beautiful. Found myself dancing in the drive way (well sorta).
Soon I'll go to see the sleep doc, then onto the hand care, xray and return to the hand guy to see outcome. I might get home with a cast. Purple I think if so :)

Steve's company had a HUGE successful .........well say it was a good day for the company. It will keep the place going. Long into the few ....accomplishments ahead.

Better get my shoes on.

Kids are wonderful so is the dog, canary and the chickens oh yes Hannah the hamster too.
Surounded by life. Living it with gratitude.
Hope that your well and smiles are upon you

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."
