Goals are resolutions by another name
Well, I don't normally hold with New Year's resolutions. For one thing, I'm like most people and find it impossible to carry through.....hence the fat I'm still lugging around.
Anyway, I made "goals" instead. Ok, semantics. But leave me... Read more

God has a sense of humor. Have you looked at some people? They look like their dogs. What about ostriches - when they get upset they bury their heads in the sand. Now THAT makes things go away - NOT! And when I prayed to get out of the 1... Read more

Christmas decorating is hazardous to my well-being
I didn't realize how putting up outdoor Christmas decorations could be so hazardous. Each year, we put up plywood candy canes (painted red/white stripes) around the entire perimeter of the yard and string lights on top of them.

A friend sent this to me via regular email and I want to share it. She said, "We're not getting older....we're getting closer to home." Oh, how true. "Even so, Lord, come quickly."

Monday, Nov 12th
I weighed and measured myself this morning....a day late, but hey, it's done. I gained an entire one-half pound over the weekend....but I'M not upset. That could have been water.
The thing I'm most pleased about is that I lost a half inch... Read more
Kittens, crabs and yarn
Yesterday was my morning to clean the kitten room at the no-kill animal shelter. I went in, greeted all the kitties I still have (another was adopted over the weekend) and set about my work. After washing the dishes, I cleaned the two large ca... Read more
Election Day, November 6th
Election Day was a test of endurance. DH and I worked the polls, getting up at 5 a.m. so we could be at the location by 6 to set up. DH was Election Judge, and I was in charge of the voting machines. Promptly at 7 a.m. the doors opened to the... Read more
The storm was aptly nick-named, although Franenstein was the doctor, not the monster. You get the idea. Many people suffered much loss and heartache due to Hurricane Sandy. I praise and thank the Lord for sparing us any real problem.....no lo... Read more

I sat down this morning to read today's devotional from "Our Daily Bread" and almost cried from the blessing. God loves us so much. He sent His Son to die for us, He sustains us, and one day He will take us out of the presence of sin.
