Lent 2012

This year for lent I gave up cookies, candy, and cakes I had done well
until today I visited our local Wal Mart to fix our aunt a Easter basket
got all the goodies and the cute little bags to put the goodies in
fixing her goodies
what do I do I have some Jelly beans and then
some marshmallows .  I could have cried after I ate them.
I just had to bow my head and talk to GOD that I had sure let
him down that I had almost made it and I messed up I have been
saddened by this one mistake I have had to ask forgiveness for my failure
for this and along with all the other failures I make daily
to not complete what I had said after all the things GOD has done for me
in my life. I pray that I can not have any more until Easter.
Anyone that gives up things for lent will understand how bad you feel
when you get so close to those days but yet mess of many some of you
are always successful with what you give up if you are that is great
so don't give up now keep on Easter is just around the corner

He loves me  oh yes he loves me
even when I mess up
He loves me


Memories #1

Today I was thinking how my parents would take me to church as a child
those all day meetings and dinner on the grounds , days like this I now cherish
those memories
Recalling how there was no Air conditioner in the 60's,  how as kids we would
just have to go outside.   I can still hear my Aunt  along with others singing with no need for a
microphone you could hear those  sweet voices for a long distance
As kids we would get thirsty,  this church had a big old silver water pitcher attached to the side
would be one of those silver water dippers who knows maybe a hundred or more had drank from the
dipper ....amazing that none of us got sick ....Now that is something we sure wouldn't  dare do today
no one in the late 60's or early 70's thought the first thing about not drinking from it.
I am so blessed to have grown up in the area that I did , the church's that we attended
those good old memories .
I hope to share a different memory of my growing up each week
Hope others will share their memories from the past

Bring out some of those good old memories

Hold on to your fork !!

 This week as I was reading a book
I was deeply touched by what a older lady told her pastor.
She had been given a short time to live  telling her pastor
all the arrangements of how she wanted her funeral
She had a very odd request that the pastor
put a fork in her hand,  he was to tell no one
unless they asked as you can imagine everyone
ask "why does sister have a fork in her hand"
The pastor told each one that when she
was at dinners she would be asked hold on to your
fork each time she was asked to hold on to her fork
she thought oh boy the best is yet to come, desserts
what she so loved .
The pastor told each one
her message that for all to hold
on to their forks because the best is yet to come
I have shared this with many in the past few weeks
and have said I am going to put a fork at my desk
so people will ask and I can relay this sweet ladies
story to others that we just got to hold on to our
forks the best is yet to come ...............
Doesnt get much sweeter than her way to tell others of heaven

Blessings to all

Spring is near !!

I have been counting down the days
to spring for the last 88 days
I know that's crazy
but this is so me
I love spring
Love getting my hands in the good old dirt
planting flowers
its been so pretty here the past few days
I just had to get my hands in some dirt
I pulled weeds out of the landscape
Got my hands in the potting soil
Planted some seeds
in a few pots
Enjoying these days

Spring brings
a new feeling
way down deep in my soul
It makes me want to sing
for Joy
here I come outdoors

Enjoy these lovely days
and the freshness
each one brings
Blessings to all
