Awaiting the glorious triumph.

Friday, October 24, 2014



Losing weight is tough, y'all!! It's so much easier to put the weight on than it is to take it off. Grrrr! But, we'll just keep pushing until we get to that glorious triumph. Right? emoticon

I took a sanity day from work yesterday & had a nice day. I slept until 8:15. Yay!! I usually get up at 3:30, so that was super nice. I did 2 loads of laundry, made hubby a belated birthday dinner (homemade beef veggie soup) & watched a show on the History channel. My step count for yesterday was 22005. emoticon

An update on my Aunt. Some of you have been praying for her for a long time. She had a massive heart attack last September & had been on a decline. We nearly lost her a few months ago & your prayers pulled her back from the brink. She is doing fantastic. She had an LVAD (left ventricle assist device) implanted 8 weeks ago & she was just released from rehab yesterday. She is at home & doing great. Thank you so much for your prayers!

Also, super crazy busy weekend. Hubby & I are attending a church retreat on & off all weekend & I am co-leading a discussion panel on Worship. Sooooo, no blogs until Monday.

Work toward your glorious triumph today!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Hubcap art exhibit.

Monday, October 20, 2014



Hubby & I went to the mountains of Virginia for a couple of days over the weekend (today is his birthday) & we saw the coolest exhibit at a museum. People were tasked with make art out of old hubcaps. What a cool idea!!

Here are some of my faves:





Turtle:





Dreamcatcher:







Wind chime:



Also at this museum, there was a miniature of Tara (from Gone with the Wind) by R. Lee Taylor. Too cool!!



Happy Birthday, Sweet Hubby! emoticon emoticon you!!

Blessings to you all!! emoticon emoticon

  The top three hubcaps are my favorite! My oldest daughter had a doll house when she was young. It's upstairs in her closet now, but she had fun with it then. She electrified it with lights in the rooms and it is a big Victorian house. It would be cute to make it haunted this month!
