Wise old Owl.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."                 Jeremiah  29:11



Gosh.....sometimes it sure is hard to be "Wise" at all times!
At least once or twice a week, I find myself making crazy choices and mistakes!!   I'm merely speaking for myself here....but I'm guessing that there are many more who find themselves making decisions that are not approved by the old wise owl himself.   





Just Sayin'


As true as it might be.....* that *.... Wise decisions are not always what our day is made of......At least we can stay true to ourselves and remain AWESOME as we try to improve every choice and make them GOOD ONEs!!!!!

Be wise and keep your Heart on the right path.....

Happy Friday..... from me to you!  

I'm knocking on wood as I type...saying that this is the very first morning in over a month that I have not woke up COUGHING!

Not one cough this morning!! Thank you Lord!

I finally journeyed out yesterday and went to Hobby Hobby.  Geez...I  love this store!!  I enjoy looking at all of the different kinds of decorative items that folks come up with.  

When I walk in that store....my creative brain gets fired up!




What did I buy?  I purchased carrots.  Yes, these sweet little orange carrots caught my eye and I instantly knew that I had the perfect shelf for them to nest on. 

Can you believe that EASTER is just a couple of weeks away? Time is passing fast!!

What kind of exciting plans do you have for this coming up weekend?  Whatever you do....ENJOY!!

Fence Thursday

Ha!!!....oh boy......what a "Spring Break" this has been.  

Rain and more Rain and flooding and more flooding.   Lots of our back roads have been washed out again...or completely impassable.

God knows what we have need of...and if it's 10 inches or more of rain....then we are to be grateful with that.  

                          

Not everyone enjoys the wee morning hours of rolling thunder...but I certainly do!  Last night we had plenty of it and I found myself curling up in the fetal position and sleeping SO GOOD.   

Check this out....what better way to enjoy a rainy day than this?



Mylee used my old shopping buggy to haul her Barbie Dolls around.  See my old suitcase sitting on the floor, back behind the cart?  She toted that thing too...as she drove the Barbies all around.   

On Rainy days...you have to be creative!!

I'm joining "Good Fences" today.   I saved my fence picture for last....I went to the farm the other night with Sam and it was way too dark for me to feel good about being out there.   This is a picture of him unlocking the gate.  


   
There are way too many spooky sounds out there for me.   I did manage to get out of the truck to hold the flashlight for him, while he backed up to the trailer.   

In my mind....I was pretty sure that there was a black panther out there watching us!!!!!!!  I was sure thankful when he finished hitching up the trailer.  I can promise....it didn't take me long to jump back in the truck!!




Hey....I sure hope you all have a fabulous day!   

Texas hugs from me to you!!

this and that

Here it is.....Spring Break!  I love having all my babies at home and out of school...


Unfortunately, it's not going to be one of those Gorgeous...full of sunshine...kind of Spring Breaks.  The latest weather reports are forecasting lots of rain for our area!   


I guess there is no better time to get out all the supplies and do a little Spring Cleaning. 

Our home could use a little of this too.   Even though I'm home everyday.....sometimes I find myself guilty of junking up the place.   

Closets need to be cleaned and I will be so excited to put away all the Winter clothing! In my opinion, it has been (Shorts) weather for quite some time now!

Wouldn't it be sweet to live in a place like Hawaii where you only have a need for one season of clothing?  No changing out the different seasons of clothes??

This would be SWEET!!

Baseball season has started!  This is my favorite sport!  Not only do I love the game (and watching my grands play) but I love the outdoors.   It's awesome to sit outside and watch the game!!

Where have all the bloggers gone? I can't figure it out.  Is everyone just kinda tired of blogging, or is life too busy for us all?  I love blogging...but I can sure tell that my followers have dropped a bit.   

I love visiting with everyone and keeping up with all of my far distant friends.   I'm thinking that Facebook has taken over.  I understand....because it is easier, but I just don't think it's as personal as blogging.


I'm hoping to get back into my more inspirational style of blogging.   

Hope all of you my friends....have a super, wonderful day.

Hugs from Texas

Happy March!!!!   


I'm jumping for joy to have March roll upon the calendar.   February was a very long month and while a day is a day.....the month change sure brings hope of things moving forward.

Today is election day here in the great state of Texas.   Sam and I have already voted (thank goodness) and one can only hope that each citizen of the United States will do their duty and go out there and VOTE.



There have been quite a few days lately when I have had to repeat over and over again.....Psalm 46:10.

"Be Still and know that I am God"

When we face difficulties or when those we love come up against a constant flow of what seems to be negative energy......it becomes very challenging to understand the depths of this scripture.  

"Be Still and know that I am God" means that we must Trust God to bring us to that sweet place of harmony in knowing that God is in control.   

Any detour that God leads us on, is a path to bring out the good in  us.   It doesn't always mean that what we are longing for is going to lead to more closed doors.......it just sometimes means that God needs to get our attention before HE can move us further in the direction of HIS will for our lives.

There are two great wisdoms in this scripture....

ONE...."BE STILL"  This means to gain PEACE.  Rest in God and be willing to listen to HIS clear direction.

TWO......"Know that I am God"
God wants all things to be for our good.  HE loves us and trusting HIM brings us to a place of complete harmony.


Hope you enjoy this beautiful day......

Shug....
