Trying To Get It Together...

Where O where did I put that work calendar? I am trying to get it together and keep everything written down in the calendar... if I don't... I make mistakes! I have to have my calendar & I put it somewhere when I was cleaning. That is not good.

Remember when things were slower? Remember, those of you who are older, when you thought your life would slow down when the kids were grown? It just doesn't work that way does it. Sometime, I feel like I'm on a rollo coaster. I guess the good thing about a rollo coaster is that it slows down & stops at some point. I don't need it to stop... I just need it to slow down. The good thing is that I do not feel nearly as tired as I did yesterday."Perhaps the best thing about the future is that it comes just one day at a time." -unknown

Maybe the weather is affecting my feelings! lol!

Possibly, A Slower Week...

This will be, possibly, a slower week, but you never know!

Last week, my daughter Amy and her children Kinsey & Caden were in from out of state. It was quite busy trying to fit everything in with lots of running, babysitting as well as my other work that I had to do.

By Saturday night, I was exhausted! Of course, the time change a couple weeks ago didn't help. It takes me a while to get use to losing that one hr of sleep. It sure would be nice if they would just leave it at one time or another. Thought... maybe they could just compromise and move it to the half hr and leave it for good. That might make everybody happy, but then again... not!

Well, it's early Monday morning and I'm up and at it!

Have a great day!

Keep An Apple...

"Spare the rod & spoil the child - that is true. But beside the rod, keep an apple to give him who has done well." - Martin Luther

The Lord Is Our Righteousness...

"If there is a difference of opinion, where is our religion, if we cannot think and let think?" -John Wesley

I ran across this quote from John Wesley that I thought was worth sharing today. This is taken from John Wesley's sermon, "The Lord Is Our Righteousness" preached at the Chapel in West-Street, Seven Dials, Sunday, November 24, 1765.

We're On A Roll...

Well, we're on a roll... tomato seed planting roll that is. Today, Brett, Breanna and I planted tomato seeds. Another fun time in the dirt! The seeds are planted and everyone is happy.

Brett had to run and try to find the big fat rabbit that was in our flower bed after we got here . The rabbit was just too fast.

Breanna had to have her tea party, so we got out the tea set, punch and cookies. The we watched the Cheaper by The Dozen dvd. I think everyone was tired from the days activities.
For now, I am having to borrow pictures from my children's sites to post. I am going to have to get a new digital camera. My camera, which I really, really liked, has a broken piece. I am researching what type of camera I want to get. I have an older digital that I may try to get up and running. There are just too many new things that I need to get recorded on camera. :)

This is my little disclosure in small print just like the big guys do. lol!

First Garden Planting...

Lauryn, Brooklyn & I did our first garden planting yesterday morning. That is indoors, of course. I showed them how to plant tomato seeds.

We got out our little pots, soiless mix and seeds. I showed the girls how to fill the pot with soil, put in the seeds and water. They wanted to leave them at my house and come check on them every week. So that's the plan for now. Part of the fun is watching them peek through the soil and start to grow. After they are up and going, the girls are going to take them home. They were so excited!

It's quite an easy project and kids just love it! Next week, we're going to pick another vegetable to plant. The choices are almost endless...

Gran's Farm Animals...

I haven't mentioned this in a long time, but Gran's Farm Animals to the left of this blog is a fun activity for the young (and young at heart).

Isaiah & Sophia, two of my youngest grandchildren played and fed my animals for about 45 min to an hr. last evening. They loved them. I hope you and yours do to. That is the reason I leave them up.

Why Can't We Drill For Oil...

I have posted Genisis 1 from the KJB which explains the creation of the world and everything in it. My question is this... If God says man has dominion over everything God created in the air, on land, in the sea and the earth... Why can't we drill for oil?

God made the oil, the coal, the gas just like the wind and the sun. Why do a bunch of environmentalist & congressmen have control over what God has given us to use? God didn't give it to us to be buried and kept for .... what reason?

God knew we needed heat and fuel. He knew we would have homes, automobiles, ships and planes. As man grew in wisdom God showed men how His natural resources could be used to better mankind. He knew that oil would meet our needs. He knew that the drilling of this oil would benefit states and our country as well as others. He knew that if America drilled the world supply would be a fair price because of competition.

Yes, solar can be put to good use and maybe wind, but we know that oil, gas and coal are good reliable sources that are present for use right now. We just need a few wise men and women with power in the government to let our people drill for what God gave us to use.

We only have one God and it is His oil and He said we could use it. I think we have a lot to pray about and encourage our leaders to do something about.
Genesis 1 KJV

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Praising The Lord...

I loved the Jews for Jesus singing this song and praising the Lord. I don't know about you but I find it so uplifting esp. if you get into it. I get into it and sing and clap my hands.

Blessings to you today...
