Finally! The mystery is solved!!

Friday, June 04, 2010

I was born in 1959, so I was a bit young for Woodstock. Having three brothers who were teenagers when I was born, however, exposed me to music a generation head of my time. So I know who Joe Cocker is. I bet you do, too. He was in such a pitifully drugged state at Woodstock that nobody could understand what on EARTH he was singing. Well, some clever soul has finally figured it out and has shared it with us! (I will tell you now that Fred in leather nearly did me in. I laughed til my side hurt. lol)

    I was born in '53 and used to love that song, could sing it right through without a problem. Then I got older and wondered how on earth I could even know what it was he was singing, and only NOW do I realize I was wrong all along! You have no idea how many times I watched that one repeat after another after another...Kept missing lines cos I was having trouble seeing through the tears of constant laughter, and I'm sure my next-door neighbour is gonna think I'm crazy sitting here by myself laughing hysterically at this hour of the morning.

All I can say is I am sooooo glad I've never felt the need to buy a Wonder Loaf, hahahah.

Thank you so much, now if ever I'm down I'll know where to turn to for a giggle.

    Hi Missy,
That was hilarious! I thought it was going to be for real...the Kia confused me, but then it just kept getting funnier! I especially liked the Wonder bread references. I was born in 1970, but I have still seen this video before, lol. I am relieved to finally know what he was saying, thanks for the blog!

Prayers for you and the Captain,
Angela

    Missy, I come from that generation, and watching that brought back so many memories. Of course we all knew how messed up we were. Like I said I was the most lost and best tool of the devil at that time in my life. I grew up stoned and raised my family drunk and stoned out of my head. But, Father God kept wooing me to Himself thrugh His mighty majestic love. From what I read from the comments on this blog not one person truly understands what is was like back then. Let me tell you it was a sea of sin. But, God through His magfiicent love drew me to His saving power and grace and mercy. It took Him years and years to get through to me but once He did I was and am still being drasticly transformed. He had and has a tough nut to crack with me. So, if He can turn me around 360 degrees, which is true repentance, He can turn anybody around. But, we have to allow Him access into our hearts. Only God knows my heart, I dont even know my heart, He has to teach me day by day about my heart. This blog of yours really touched me in a mighty way, it has shown me how far I have come and God is not even done with me yet. Wow, He truly is an awesome CREATOR. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sometimes it only takes a little detour from the norm.

Thursday, May 27, 2010

As most of you know, this has been a very difficult season for our family, for a variety of reasons, one more upsetting than the next. Having my CaptainCookie (gngrbrd for those of you who know us from IRC) home since February and likely home until July has brought a whole new set of challenges for us. We're accustomed to him being out on his ship 28 days, home 14 days, then back out 28 days. Being cooped up at home (and with no pay, no bucks available to go out and play) together all this time can take its toll. We are blessed with a pleasant and sweet marriage, but even that can be tested under our current stressors.

Our oldest is evidently in a world all her own. She does not appear to be grasping how serious the situation is and is in no way responding appropriately. She's surrounded herself with people who will never lead her out of this darkness, who will never help her to be reunited with her son. It's just so very sad.

We will make it through these things with God's help. Of that we have NO doubt. Keeping a heart filled with joy and peace in the midst of it is the ticket. Having a heart that is void of judgment and full of compassion is the only way to survive it all. That's what I'm praying for, for myself... in whatsoever state I'm in, therein to be content.

We detoured this morning on our way home from bringing our son to his first day of training for McD's in a nearby town. We went to visit Heath, our 15 month old grandson. It's amazing how that one little smile can change my heart. To see his eyes light up and his little arms fly up for me to pick him up, seeing the joy he feels because I've come to spend time with him... well, it just does me in completely. It washes the crust of worry and barnacles of sadness away in a flash. Oh, that we could see the face of our Father when He smiles to us, when He throws open His arms and we run to Him, so excited to see Him, when our eyes light up with glee because, FINALLY, we can see Him in the midst of a situation. Definitely good stuff. Here's a few photos from today of our precious little man.

First, Heath was eying up those balloons.



The he started trying to get hold of one.



He got one!!



If you are happy to see someone, if their nearness fills your heart to overflowing, show them. Smile big to them. Throw your arms around them. Celebrate them. Definitely let them know. It could be very good medicine for them. And for you. It surely was for me. I bet it is for God, too. So when He makes you happy simply by showing up on the scene? Show Him your love and how happy you are to see Him.

Love y'all,

Missy

I admire you so much! You are such a wise, profound, compassionate woman. My heart aches hearing about all the pain you have been going through. And yet... I especially liked the story about the meaning of "lu-lah!". May your family be healed of all its ills. May you be at peace. May contentment flower in your heart.

Thank you for all that you bring to those who come in contact with you, including me.

Oh, Missy! Your account of your visit with that precious little bundle of boy delights my heart & picturing those little arms & face lifted to you brought joy to my day! The photos are priceless! I am always so amazed with how little it takes to enchant little ones – the balloons being a case in point.

How my heart hurts for Melanie & for the results of choices she continues to make. Obviously she has put up a wall against all the wisdom our Abba Father is giving Bill & you on her behalf. At this point prayer is our biggest weapon to combat the pull of the enemy of our souls on Melanie’s life. On her behalf I am standing with Bill & you at the foot of the cross. I’m also remembering before our Father’s throne the group she has chosen to associate with during this time. It could well be that a change toward Christ, in just one of those young people, would spark a realization in Melanie & cause her to make the choice to turn back to God. May our Abba’s will unfold through this nightmarish time & may Melanie’s heart & mind be turned back to a strong & solid Christ centered life walk.

What truth there is in your statement: “Having a heart that is void of judgment and full of compassion is the only way to survive it all.”

Having been in a very similar situation to what Bill & you are experiencing with his medical concerns & work situation, I can attest that things will iron out & before you know it this time will become a memory. One you will be able to use as part of your life testimony &, thus, continue giving glory to God for His wonderful plan for y’all during this trial period.

One blessing we reveled in during that time of challenging health & the resulting financial circumstances was the opportunity to spend those days in one another’s company. That was our immediate “silver lining” to what God had allowed for His own good purposes.

Please, even with the stressors facing y’all, do enjoy all the moments with your Bill – it is your special opportunity to make warm & toasty memories that without the challenges y’all would not have!

Be blessed, my sweet Sister!

Can't We All Just Get Along?

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Moe's been wondering that since becoming part of our family. Deuce, now the pet patriarch, has not responded well to Moe's attempts to get friendly. I think they have come to an understanding after all.

How could Deuce resist a face this sweet?



Apparently, he couldn't for long!



Maybe we should embrace those who put us off, aggravate us, annoy us, too? Sure seems to be working for our furry fellows, and it beats the heck outta hissing and clawing!

What's going on down there? Have they done ANYTHING to stop the oil? Wonder if we're going to start having something similar to acid rain? I can't begin to imagine the long-term impact this is going to have.

I'm probably gonna be offline for a day or so, dealing with estate stuff while trying to hold on to a shred of sanity.

    Well, our two girls are still at it! Petunia, the 11 year old queen of her kingdom, is livid that we brought Baby home, and she doesn't care who knows it! It's been a couple of months now, but when Baby comes in, she has to make a bee line for under the couch! Time will tell, but some things are so much more difficult than they need to be!

Kind of like what you're saying! When we don't even give people a chance, dislike and avoid them by some misconceived wrong impression, we may lose out on a wonderful experience! That was a great blog! *hugs*

    They are so cute!!!! And no doubt they will be giving you hours of entertainment and belly laughs with their antics. We could all definitely take a lesson from these two sweet critters!

    Sigh...they are so sweet! You have made an excellent point. Too bad more people can't pull their claws in, and purr more and hiss less!

Amazing Grace: Just the Black Notes

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

This is amazing, indeed. We've all been slaves of on sort or another. Oh, for the grace that sets us free! Big, big thanks to my sweet friend, Makk, for this special link. Even if you've seen it before, allow it to wash over your heart and soul anew.

    That was really great! Yes...Grace, it is truely amazing... I consider "Amazing Grace" to be one of the most beautiful and truthful hymns ever written...who can sing or hear that song without tears? I did not realize that it could be played on the black notes only...I need to tell my sister as she is teaching herself to play the piano, she already can play " Amazing Grace" but I am sure it is using white notes too.
Thanks for sharing that...it was beautiful, uplifting and educational. emoticon
