How low are you? TEMPERATURES AND PLACE Day too

Saturday, January 04, 2014

I thought since a LOT of the country is having record lows it might be fun to see where some of us are and how low we are. I know here in KC area Sun--Tues night will be our lows.

Today in KC it was 34* but now time 3:25 PM it is dropping. It's dropped 10* in 1 hour.
Stay tuned for Sun-Tues.

    I am in southwestern Pennsylvania. We are having the extreme weather and sub zero temperatures. Today our high was 9 but the wind chill was way below zero. Monday with the windchill, it is supposed to be -35 but then a heat wave is to hit Tuesday with the temperatures (with windchill) only a -25. Definitely too cold to be outside for more than a few minutes at a time. I have only been able to stay for a maximum of 15 minutes at a time to shovel snow. Can't wait until this extreme weather is a thing of the past.
Blessings and hugs,

I am ready for spring where is it?

Sunday, March 24, 2013

I am tired of winter. !!
Today is Palm Sunday and I spent over an hour shoveling, and cutting yet 2 more branches that have fallen from the snow. My dh and dd walked to church and there was less than 10 there but our wonderful Pastor was good! It was a blessing.
My dh is now at work, my dd is gone and then another 2 branches fell, thank goodness they were small and I could use the clippers to cut them and fill up yet another trash can.
I even got our trash out for trash pick up tomorrow.
This has been my spring break, not a very spring break weather wise. I did not get my clothes done, wanted to put away winter clothes, and comforter, instead I'm using them.
They say spring will come I hope so.
Still with all this snow we are still in a drought! Oh well God is in control.
Thank you for reading this blog!!

I heard on thank you on the debate except from Romeny did anyone else catch that?

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Last night I watched the debate with my dh. I was surprsed that Obama did NOT thank anyone, Candy, Romeny, the college, etc. Yet Romeny's first sentence was "THANK YOU." Now what does that tell you???

    I am praying that we have not gone so far away from God that Obama gets 4 more years to completely ruin our country.
I do however praise God for hearing my prayers daily.
I wish I could be surprised at him not saying thank you but I am not because despite what he says or does not say he seems to be only focused on himself and nothing else. We say thank you when we recognize we are not the most important and want to be polite and show respect for others.

    Great debate as it showed what a Snake-In-THe-Grass Obama has been. He was lacking a plan for the future and how he will turn the economic situation around or do what he promised.

Precious moments Chapel

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

This week my dh is off for a few days. I am done summer school, so we went to Carthage, MO to see the Precious Moments Chapel. If you haven't seen it and live near please go see it it is truly AMAZING! Sam Butcher is a great artist. He hand painted all the pictures, also did stain glass windows, the 32' ceiling and carved some doors too! The chapel has the parables, 23 Psalms, Beatitudes, etc. The Hallelujah Square one cannot imagine. The Bible comes alive and you leave in God's peace. It was a great day.
Today we are waiting for our new window a/c.
Thank you for reading this stay cool!

birth and miscarriage I guess all part of life

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Happy Mother's Day to all.
This is my ddil's first mother's day!! Some or most of you know that I became a grandmother this month. The dgdd is on this page and it is my son's first child! It is exciting.
In the mean time my married dd who has been tryingto have a baby for over 5 years, (will be married 6 years in July), got pregnant. Oh how happy the WHOLE family was for her.
Well the dr. did NOT hear a heart beat last week, she and her dh went to drs. again on Thurs. 5/10 and on 5/11 tested her blood. Well her hormones are dropping, her dh is a lab tech guy. So he does this at his work, and no heart beat. So the 2 have decided to do the miscarriage naturally. In God's time. Please pray as she still has not started to spot. She has 9 more work days 8 with students, she's a 2nd g teacher.
I am also praying that God will enable to get pregnant in His time and carry the child to term and prayerfully not 5 more years or more.
Thank you all for reading this blog. Thank you also for any of your prayers.
Here to mothers of live births and miscarriages because you are mother's too and it's so hard!
Thank you again.

I know the pain as I have lost two boys at 7 months than carried my youngest full 9 months and gave birth to her. God's plan is best. As Drs said in the hospital the baby may have had brain damage through use of oxygen. That was more than a few years ago. I know God is in control. emoticon

    Praying for your DD that God will bless her with a child of her His time as He knows best. I understand exactly how you and they feel as my younger daughter had two miscarriages last year. She probably will not be able to get pregnant again according to her doctor. But that is also in the hands of our Lord. Saying extra prayers for you and your family.
Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

    That's so difficult. I lost a baby in November 2009, and the doc wanted us to wait several months to try again. We waited 2, I think, and I was pregnant by March 2010. I had my beautiful girl November 2011, 11 days after the one year anniversary of losing her sib.

I hope they recover well, physically & emotionally. It hurts like crazy to get through the emotional part, but they are lucky to have people like you who care.

I'll keep you all in my thoughts!
