BEING THANKFUL.

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

The life we waste everyday because we want a better one or because we are never satisfied with it, is the life that many wish and yearn to have and would give everything to have it,

I READ THIS ON E-MAIL BLOG . A CNN REPORTER SAID THIS AFTER INTERVIEWING SOME HOMELESS PEOPLE. IT MADE ME VERY ASHAMED OF MY COMPLAINING ABOUT THIS ARE THAT. LIKE MY COMPLAINING ABOUT THE RABBITS EATING ALL MY GREEN BUSH BEANS . HUSBAND I WILL BUY YOU SOME . BUT WASN'T THANKFUL WE HAD THE MONEY TO BUY GREEN BEANS OR THANKFUL I HAD PLACES I COULD BUY. I JUST GOT MADDER AT THE RABBITS. emoticon I AM THANKFUL WE LIVE IN A COUNTRY THAT WE CAN BUY WHAT WE WANT TO EAT . I PRAISE GOD WE HAVE FOOD BANKS AND HELP FOR PEOPLE THAT NEED HELP FOR FOOD. I AM THANKFUL FOR ALOT OF THINGS. REALLY I AM THANKFUL EVERYTHING I DO HAVE.

I CAN NEVER SAY ENOUGH HOW THANKFUL I AM THAT I FOUND SPARKS IN JAN. 2009 IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE FOR THE BETTER. I KNOW MY LORD AND SAVIOUR LEAD ME HERE TO GET HEALTHY AND MEET ALL OF YOU. I HAVE GROWN SO MUCH AS A PERSON AND LOST 40 LBS DOING IT. I HAVE LEARNT SO MUCH I WILL LOSE THE OTHER 40LBS. PLUS A LTTLE BUT MY GOAL IS 40 MORE.

ANOTHER THING ABOUT THE RABBITS. I SPENT $20 ON A PRODUCT THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO MAKE THEM SCRAM NO IT DIDN'T. MY FALL CROP OF BEANS ALMOST WENT TO SAME WAY AS THE SPRING TO THE RABBITS. THE COMPANY WILL REFUND MY MONEY ANOTHER THANKFUL THING. I SEARCHED THE WEB FOR A WAY TO KEEP THEM AWAY. NOW YOU CAN START LAUGHING. YOU CAN SOAK CORN COBS IN VINEGAR OVERNIGHT AND THEM BUT THEM AROUND THE BEANS AND THE RABBITS WILL LEAVE . I ALSO ADDED HOT SAUCE. CORN COBS IN GARDEN NOW ALSO YOU CAN PUT HOT SAUCE IN GAL. OF WATER AND SPRAY BEANS AND ALL SURROUNDING AREA IN LATE EVENING. BUT SOME SAID THAT WAS NOT HUMANE TO DO THAT TO THE CUTE BUNNY RABBITS NOSE. OH MAY I HAVE 2 BOTTLES OF HOT SAUCE AND RABBITS HERE I COME. THEY WERE CUTE LITTLE BUNNIES THIS SPRING BUT NOW THEY ARE BEAN DESTORYING UGLY RABBITS. HUBBY OR SON WON'T KILL THEM UNTIL RABBIT SEASON. OH THEY BETTER HUNT & KILL THIS FALL . I WILL FRY AND ENJOY EATING THEM(MAYBE). HOT SAUCE IS EVERYWHERE AROUND GREEN BEANS AND SURROUNDING AREA . I MIXED WITH WATER BUT I DIDN'T SPRAY I POURED FOR 2 OR 3 NIGHTS. I INTEND TO CONTINUE UNTILL I EAT ALL THE GREEN BEANS I WANT AND GIVE AWAY OR THE FROST KILLS THEM. THE RABBITS DON'T KNOW HOW HARD HEADED I AM WHEN I DECLARE WAR AND I HAVE DECLARED WAR ON RABBITS IN MY BEAN PATCH. BY THE WAY WE HAVE ABOUT 40 ACRES THEY ARE WELCOME TO COME AND GO BUT NOT THE BEAN PATCH.

THANKS FOR READING . PLEASE BE THANKFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE , ALL IS WELL!!!!!!!!!ALL IS WELL WITH MY SOUL.!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS SPARKFRIENDS KAY emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

HURRICANE IRENE

Saturday, August 27, 2011

As the Lord leads, please pray:

That God might use the winds and rains to draw people to Himself.
That, if it is His will, the storm might weaken substantially or take a more easterly course away from the U.S.
For the people who are in the path of Iren to evacuate safely and patiently.
For those who will be staffing relief efforts, including Salvation Army, Red Cross, and local groups.


I WAS THINKING AND PRAYING FOR THE HURRICANE AND I OPEND AN E-MAIL WITH THIS PRAYER. IT IS WHAT I WANTED TO PRAY. I WANTED SHARE IT WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS I COULD SO IT WOULD BE JOINT EFFORT SENT TO HEAVEN. ALSO PLEASE ADD TO THE PRAYER THAT PLACES THAT NEED RAIN WILL RECEIVE IT.

THAT WAS THE IMPORTANT STUFF OF MY BLOG. HERE IS THE UPDATE ON ME AND MY JOURNEY. I AM FEELING SO MUCH BETTER. THE LITTLE IRON PILL HAS DONE WONDERS. HUBBY ROGER AND I EXERCISING AND WALKING HAS REALLY HELPED BOTH OF US. WE BOTH FEEL IT IN OUR YOUNG MUSCLES OF 67 AND 66 YEARS.

MY GOALS FOR THIS WEEK AND TODAY IS TO GET THE REST OF GARDEN CLEANED OF WEEDS AND TEND TO FALL GARDEN

I HAVE PLACED A WATER CHALLENGE FOR TEAMS . I WANT TO FULL IT IT MYSELF.

ORGANIZE MY TIME BETTER.

MOST IMPORTANT HAVE A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD AND HELP MANY PEOPLE AS I CAN ALONG THE WAY.

SET YOUR GOALS AND WORK ON THEM .

ALL IS WELL ALL IS WELL WITH MY SOUL. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS. HAVE A BLESSED AND SFE WEEK-END KAY

    Thank you for sharing the prayer. Being on the West Coast, I am very removed from the potential tragedy, but nevertheless, the people who are bracing for Irene, or have already seen her pass them, are in my thoughts.

Good luck on your water challenge. I, too, am keeping a full glass of water within arms' reach. It helps me when I see the level drop. emoticon

    I live in North Carolina but luckily, I'm not in an area that has to worry about Irene. I got some family members on the Coast so I'm constantly praying for them. Lets keep everyone on the Carolina Coast (and any other affected areas) in our prayers through this and hope it weakens before it moves up towards the north.

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

I LOVE SPRING AND SUMMER . WHERE DID THEY GO?????THE OLDER I GET THE FASTER THEY GO. I AM HELPING HUBBY IN GARAGE AND PUTTING GARDENING AWAY IN MY GARDEN SHED. YUCK. THAT MEANS FALL IS COMING. SO I DECIDED TO PLAN A FALL GARDEN. HUBBY HELPED ME PLANT PEAS AND SOME GREEN BEANS. THE BEANS ARE UP . BUT THERE IS A BUT WHEN IT COMES TO MY BUSH GREEN BEANS. RABBITS AND MORE RABBITS. THEY DESTORYED SEVERAL ROWS OF BEANS THAT CAME UP UP NICE. I TOOK ACTION SATURDAY AND SPENT $20 ON DEER AND RABBIT SCRAM. MY HUBBY ABOUT CROAKED $20 FOR A FEW GREEN BEANS AND PEAS. I TOLD HIM IF HE WOULD USE ONE OF THOSE GUNS HE WAS HE WOULDN'T COST HIM. BUT NO HE DOESN'T WANT TO SHOT THE LITTLE THINGS . I WAS IN A CLASS ABOUT STRESS . I AM SUPPOSE TOJOURNAL OR BLOG 2 MINUTES EVERYDAY WHAT I AM GRATEFUL FOR. I GUESS I AM GRATEFUL THAT I HAD THE MONEY TO BUY THE DEER AND RABBIT SCRAM. OF COURSE I AM BEING SILLY I AM GRATEFUL FOR A LOT MORE THEN THAT. I AM VERY GRATEFUL I FOUND SPARKS AND ALL MY SPARK FRIENDS. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS. KAY PS BACK TO FALL GARDEN.

    Even though kids are back in school, its still summer here... over 100 degrees daily. No fall planting here for a while. I wish we could start our fall garden soon. It could still be hot for Christmas.
And I'm on your side about the rabbits - POW!
I'm gonna use the grateful idea too. I need to remember to count my blessings! Thanks!

    Sounds like a busy day .I am the opposite I love Fall and Winter so my favorites are coming up.I have always liked them better for some reason.That is such a great idea to blog every day about what you are thankful for.I think I might start a gratitude journal myself.It seems at times we get so caught up in life's every day ups and downs that we forget to think about how many things we have to be grateful for.
Have fun in your garden emoticon emoticon

  I like the gratitude idea too. It's okay to be grateful for having money to spend on the scram. Sometimes some people just don't have that. I have an alarm set on my phone for 12:30pm every day and I use it to remind me to be grateful for whatever is happening in the moment and some times ,,,,,,,,,,, it's hard to be grateful at that time, but it is helping me with my stress. Good luck with ur fall garden. Hope the rabbits leave u alone.

I STAYED WITH HER A COUPLE OF DAYS AND HELPED HER. TUESDAY AUG 2ND I TOOK HER FOR A STRESS TEST. SHE TALKED TO DR YESTERDAY AND HER HEART IS FINE. THE BIRTH DEFECT IS NOT AFFECTING HER HEART . PRAISE GOD !!!!!!SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOF TOP. SHE IS GOING TO FOLLOW UP WITH HER FAMILY DR. THE HEART DR SUGGESTED TO DO OTHER TESTS BUT HE IS SURE THE PAIN IS NOT LIFE THREATENING. PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS MOM IS SO HAPPY. A WEEK AGO I WAS HELPING HER GET THINGS TAKEN CARE OF THAT NEEDED TO BE TAKEN CARE BILLS ETC AND EVERYONE WAS ON PINS & NEEDLES. UNTIL THE DR REPORT YESTERDAY IT WAS HARD TO GET BACK TO NORMAL. WHAT EVER NORMAL IS. DAUGHTER IS BACK TO WORK.

OLDEST GRANDSON IS STAYING HOME TO DO HIS COMPUTER STUFF. DAUGHTER IS WORKING. I DON'T WHAT BELOVED DAUGHTER -IN-LAW IS DOING. BUT PRAISE GOD AGAIN . LIFE IS GOOD AND ALL IS WELL WITH MY SOUL.

IF YOU THINK SPARKS ISN'T FOR YOU GET INVOLVED AND YOU WILL FIND A WHOLE KNEW CIRCLE OF FRIENDS AND PLENTY OF SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT. IF I CAN EVER HELP YOU PLEASE CONTACT ME.
