A Better Day
I started to write a blog this morning, but it was so negative. Where did that come from? I had started reading Charles Stanley's book, The Source of My Strength. The chapter was about dealing with Abuse in our lives. And, I found that the m... Read more
Another Beautiful Day in Pendleton
It is overcast, windy and much cooler here this morning. And, this weekend is our Spring Bazaar at Church. Hope it is warmer by tomorrow - no wind or rain would be nice. But, I love the weather - whatever it is. The rain washes the air and m... Read more
A Better Day
Time to get back on track. Am mostly over the flu - just tire easily, but that too will pass. Have lost a couple pounds in the process, but those will probably just return. Need to measure - that is where I have been losing.
