I wanted to call this post something like “old man winter is a bastard” but thought perhaps not. I shall not let my immature nature and old man winter get the better of me. See here’s the deal, winter went on forever this last year. I think the last snow fall was sometime in the middle of May…yes MAY, the month of May! Now for us who live in the northern hemisphere this is rather ridiculous but who can I send my complaint to? Certainly not ye ole father winter. So I threw my knitting aside and went running outdoors begging for sunshine and finally around July it happened and all of this faded into the past. But alas, we who live in the frozen tundra return to the frozen tundra as the temperatures again fade, but on a brighter note, we pick up our projects and finish them. Yep…

Today being a Monday

I am not a fan of this 1st day..but since I gave yesterday such high praise..I am going to do that today too! My daughter reminded  me at 10 pm she had her Road Test scheduled for 10 am an hour away. AT 8am…she discovers it is at 12! Ok! But I really don’t roll so easily..now this is quite..well annoying..so I take a big breath..and press my lips together and bend my head to my kindle…One Thousand Gifts..keep reading….she vents verbally just like she has seen me do..this is not attractive. SO THEN..I had another cup of Java Time..and then went outside to my garden cleaned out the row and planted  more green beans. Picked some cukes and cherry tomatoes..now I am sitting on the suntanning deck…the  cat is all over me..nipping and bumping me for attention..even doing the face rub on my nose
as I am trying to type! My daughter states  she is cooking French Toast..and offered me some..I am sorry to say my 1st answer was …no thanks…but I changed it to “yes, I will have one” because that really was not the right answer..was it? YES…I will take this day as it comes..not ordered by me..but so different..it has a special goodness..because that is how I will see it…one day of many blessings..even while my salted cukes wait!

I am a minority?

Recently I have traveled to Deleware..and Virginia..lovely weather wish you were there…I have to say that white – skinned Americans are not the norm..I also will say that I am still surprised..and…say that really we white skinned are the minority..in housing..working places…many times I wonder …will I be able to communicate to my service providing person or the persons I pass on the stairs? I am the minority..what is the border issue in relation to how many foreigners walk amongst us? I just wish we could all communicate with words beyond pleasantries…God be amongst us in these communications!

Well Indeed

When elderly touch our lives..we may not notice.  When noticing that they do..who would we tell? Facebook and WordPress give us an opportunity to share..but try to tell another elderly person..and they do not want to hear about IT! Well indeed…..

The Temperature

I am on my deck outside.  It is cooler…but really only maybe 2 degrees..God has provided a whispering breeze.  Today it felt like that other State..in the temperature and the humidity, but I knew the evening would provide that peaceful break.  Can we not find a way to get through to the peace..in the weather; the relationships? WAIT and know that God does provide…that way out! And I may spend so much time in that peace that I will build a bed..with cushions..and stay there..like on the mount when they wanted to build a tabernacle..one for Jesus..Moses and Elijah? Forgive me if the names are wrong and watch rain..come down on my bed! And I think of the feast of the tabernacles..and know that God made this for my peace in Him. Sehlah


While reading JOB 39:13-17..I discover the word “pinion” which means wing feathers or as to people: to restrain or immobilize a person by binding the arms. As I continue to read this God is saying to Job that the ostrich drops her eggs..in the dust, warming them..forgetting they could be crushed underfoot..treats the eggs as if they are not hers, unconcerned….BECAUSE GOD HAS MADE HER FORGET HER  WISDOM! When I looked at this and caught the word “pinion” I thought about opinions..some without wisdom.. how opinions can bind us..make us prisoners…cause us to act without wisdom…be like the ostrich without concern..OPINIONS use with caution, give with caution and receive with caution! God, please give us wisdom..that we not be bound by opinions, but truth, yours!
