The treadmill and me
I love to walk and have walked all spring, summer and fall except on yucky rain or recent cold days. So I thought I would join a exercise place for the winter to help me stay on track. As much as I love to walk its been so hard for this outdoorsy gal to stay on the treadmill for 30 minutes, just maybe I can work up to a hour of treadmill ..until next time happy treadmill walking for those that can stay on it longer my hats off to you !

Early Morning

If anyone would have told me I would have been a early morning person some years back, I would have said "No Way " I like my morning sleeping in. Oh what I was missing those years of sleeping in , The beauty I see each morning as I step out on my porch, the quietness before dawn is a blessing. Then the sunrises each morning
 This week along I have saw some of the most beautiful sunrises the blues, the purples, the pinks, and the orange colors are breathe taking beautiful created by the master artist.
                                             The first appearance of sunrise in the above picture

                                     The picture doesn't do the sky justice as the color was more vibrant

Look at that sunshine .....

How blessed I am to be out each morning early to see and hear the beauty

Confirmation from GOD

I was walking the track Saturday evening as I do most evenings. 
While walking I pray and talk to GOD during my walk, this evening I was
crying over our precious Lady dog.
I saw in my spirit a little boy in a red rocking chair holding our precious
Lady dog.  This little boy was petting and rubbing ladies belly just like she
liked and she was leaning her head on his shoulder just like she did my husbands
when he would be her in what we called the recliner, he could say lady do you want
to get in the recliner and he was the recliner he would hold her and rub her belly Lady
would lay her head on him so sweet as to say I love you so much.
Last night as I was outside on the porch missing Lady so much I was praying as I just ask
GOD if this was truly what I saw in my spirit to let my husband see this as well.
We were in bed last night and Chuck said Glenna I had the most unusual experience
earlier I was in the computer room playing the Xbox and it was as if a fog came over me
and I saw Lady in the lap of a little boy , I couldn't see his face but I could see lady she was
playing with him and he was petting her Lady was so happy my husband said, he then picked up Champion and took him in his arms and said Champ your mom is happy and she is OK .
I then tell my husband what I had prayed outside while he was inside I told him that
it was confirmation as what he allowed me to see.
This morning my husband said does GOD always do this for you ......I said all you have
to do is ask him and he will show you , I always ask to make it plain,
If you are wanting something confirmed "ASK" he will make it plain for you just
as he does me

Thank you Lord for confirmation

A Perfect dog ~~Lady was just that !!!

Where do I begin to tell the story of our perfect little Prancing Lady Dog

In 2002 she started coming up to visit my husband
as she was our neighbor several houses down dog
each day that she came my husband was delighted
he told me that I have the sweetest little dog
visiting during the day
Weeks passed and Lady as my husband called her  
begin to just stay all the time
My husband talked to the man that owned
the dog and he said just keep her until she goes into heat
as he wanted to breed her
when she did my husband called and told him that he should come get her
that he did

two days latter my husband said I sure miss Lady
about ten o'clock that night
maybe 10 minutes after my husband had said that  
Lady knocked at the door
yes she knocked with her food bowl
My husband goes to the door
there is Lady with a dirty nose where
she had dug out to get to my husband
The neighbor told my husband just keep
her she loves you and doesn't want
to stay here
so she is your dog

She sure became our dog
taking hold on both our hearts
with her sweet personality
all this lady ever wanted
was her belly rubbed
and she would flop over in front
of you just to get you to rub her belly

she following me on my walks ,
she helped me plant flowers,
she circled the yard before I mowed
making sure it was ok
she would prance inside just to get a treat
and right back out she wanted to go
She would lay out on the deck with me
while I sit in the sun

My husband would hold her up in his arms as
if she was in a recliner and the sweetest
thing ever she always laid her head over
on his should as if to say I love you

Lady you taught me so much about Love !!! Unconditonal Love You came to Chuck a blessing I know Lent to us from above To teach us to be kind And giving of all When I looked in those bright brown eyes my hearts melts you were so sweet and kind I treasure you your job so big and mine so small For I know nothing of forgives to some of mankind and you only in return ask for a belly rub, a pat or game of flecth , meal and water We did do this with out a problem for you touched our heart and soul my four legged friend you taught me the unconditional love as you have I know the world can be a better place If we can be forgiving and loving to all

Lady you were a beautiful dog inside and out ......................you can just see the sweetness

I truly believe she loved my flowers as much as I do, this dog never
once dug anything, tore up anything like I said she was the Perfect

we brought her in for her to eat her food she would let the other dogs eat her food
as you can see she just wanted to be with my husband the food could wait

Lady went to sleep August 23 2013
our hearts are  broke
one thing for sure she loved us so much
and we loved her just as much
Lady you gave you eleven wonderful years
of loving you

the song started at" Didn’t I run to your rescue didn’t I hear you when you called "  wow how awesome is our GOD !!!

As I kneel in the darkness in the middle of the night

I’m praying for assurance everything’s gonna be alright

Lord I see another battle out in front of me

I’m afraid I won’t be able and I’ll go down in defeat

And He said, I walked on the water and I calmed the raging sea

I spoke to the wind, it hushed and I gave you peace

Didn’t I run to your rescue didn’t I hear you when you called

I walked right beside you just so you wouldn’t fall

Didn’t I leave all of Heaven just to die for your sin

I searched until I found you and I’d do it all again

He said, do you remember where I brought you from

Just take a look behind you at how far you’ve come

And everytime you asked me, didn’t I deliver you

So why would you be thinking that I wouldn’t see you through

Now she’s talking to her father in a house that was once a home

She said my bills are coming due Lord and six days is not that long

She hears a voice so still and low

It says I’ve moved like that before

And I’ll do this little thing and I’ll give you so much more

Pictures say ...............................


                              As we Sit on my front porch each morning sipping our hot black coffee
                                          listening to the wind blow though the trees.the beautiful birds
                              flying ever so peaceful to stop and drink the nectar or eat from the feeders.
                                                    Talk about peaceful, I think these pictures
                                                                          say it all

              (just noticed that I should have removed my weed eating shoes from the chair)
Here comes the glourious sunrise beaming though the trees

The old saying is a picture is worth a thousand words
here are a few that I feel from these picutres

breaking of the day

Add a few of your own if you like

Be watching for the next porch post as I travel the county taking a few
pictures of porches ...


Bike & Me

The above nice blue bike
was given to me a few (I thinkk 3 or 4 ) years ago
I had wanted a bike from some time
one day at work my neighbor called and said
are you still looking at getting a bike?
Yes, I am was my reply
My neighbor had just bought a new bike
a couple weeks ago
She then proceeded to tell me the Lord had
laid it on her heart to give this to me
I was overjoyed that she and GOD
knew what I wanted
I offered to pay her however she would take nothing for it
I am sure blessed
I rode it that year some and just after her giving it to me
I tore my meniscus and couldn't ride
I tried to ride it each year just couldn't get the knee to work with me
now fast  forward to this year
I can ride
the knee is doing much better Praise GOD for his healing touch
I ride early mornings and late evenings
feeling the wind in my hair and face as I ride
makes me feel like the young girl
that used to ride her bike everywhere
growning up in my little town
that was better than

How to Praise God !

Let me begin to say I am thankful for finding the Multitudes on Mondays as it has changed me to look for little things to be thankful for .
I know that I still do not Prise God enough, I am on a search to learn to Praise him more and more
with each new day.

In Praising GOD more I will

1.. Continue to keep a list of things to thank him for it can be as simple as the beautiful flowers, colors,
the Sun, a child's laughter.  This Trains my mind to stay Positive on the things going on around me .

2.  I will sing a Praise to him , a song that is on my heart or singing along with some music , I can sing
loud and no one hears me on the lawn mower, which works great as no one would want to hear my off
key however the bible says Psalms  34:1 47: 6, 28:7,100:2 , 1 Chronicles 16:23

3.  Closing my eyes and stopping for just a few seconds to say thank you Lord for this moment

4.  Giving Praise to GOD though Prayer , praying many times a day keeps me and you in tune with
our relationship with GOD .I have found when I am outside walking the track its a wonderful time to
pray and give thanks to GOD as its just me and him

5.  Reading daily devotionals is another way to give Praise and be thankful, I like doing my at night
when I can have some quite time during the summer I like to take my devotional , my bible and journal
outside on the deck or porch so peaceful .

6.  Your praise to God is evidenced through your salvation. 1 Peter 2:9 says, "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.  Praise To God - Do You Proclaim His Praise?

7. I will clapp my hands, even jumping for joy… dance ... David Danced mightly before GOD (2Samuel 6:14 ,the list is endless. We can give glory and praise to our God with the use of our physical bodies, with our hearts and minds, and with our deeds. There are many ways to praise God! No matter how you praise and worship God, it should result in an awe of God's power, love, and grace for me and you .     GO ahead and Priase GOD right now .....Sing, pray, clapp, dance, Praise .....

Family Heirloom

My husband was given this week a big brown box taped with duck tape that said on the box your Grandmothers Great Grandmothers , making this my husbnads Great Great Grandmothers from years ago. He opened it to find a Black worn leather bond Bible , pages yellowed and dog eared from years of use and age. We looked at this bible with careful hands putting many of the worn pages in plastic sleves to try and save the pages from more deterioration. We found the page dated 1872 wow 141 years . Those 141 years bought to my mind , wondering how many times Chuck's Great Great Grandmother and others though the years have read this bible, the prayers that have been prayed in these 141 years . A Precious heirloom for sure

Notice the Roman Numbers

In Memory of my Dad Fathers day 2013

The first true love any girl has is that of her dad

The first true love any girl has, is her father

I know this is true as I loved my dad,  he was my hero
Standing about 6 foot 4 with that white wavy hair that shined like a diamond
He was a giant of a man in my eyes

He was a wonderful provider for his wife and nine children, not a one of us
every went without , we always had shelter  clothes, food, a stable home life that
was centered around God and family.

As I look back on the few short years I was allowed to have
my dad, he taught me so much ,values that stick with me today ,37 years later
Be honest , always work for what you get, be helpful to others, give to others
Speak to everyone, as everyone has feelings treat them the way you would want to be

A few memories

There is never a day that I don't think about my dad, I am reminded of him
when I mow and weed eat , He would think I was a lazy mowed and weeder
as he used a push mower and his knife down on his knees trimming the weeds

I think about his love for keeping everything neat and clean, he cleaned his car
every day , he wouldn't be happy with me if he saw my car he would say "you have the dirtiest car I have ever saw and with a car like that I wouldn't want to go look at the inside of your house"
I can remember him saying if you see a dirty car you can count on their house looking the same
I don't think that applies to everyone but he sure did.

He would tell everyone when introducing me I was his "baby" and I would say later Daddy  just say I was the youngest don't say I am the baby  his reply would always be "you will always be my baby even when you are 40"

He was a avid hunter,  I had so wanted to go squirrel hunting with him he wouldn't take me
but I keep begging until one day he said ok , so off we go he parks the truck  and we get out and start up the mountain I may have been 8 or 10.  I was just so excited to be going I picked up a walking stick
to climb the hills with , we get way up in the hill and he says to me sit down right here ,
while sitting there ~~I can see him now standing to  the right of me up a few feet from where I am sitting
 as I sit  I decided to just break that stick I was carrying , CRACK .... the stick went , my dad turned to me and says lets
go I said I thought we were going squirrel hunting he didn't say anything  I keep on and on but I
wanted to squirrel hunt finally when we get back in the truck I ask again but dad why  did we come out of the woods, he then replies " when you cracked that stick back there the squirrel ran off you have to be quiet in the woods " I don't remember him telling me to be quite  but that is something
I never was good at ~~being quite~~ Needless to say I never got to go hunting with him  again.

So today Dad I am over 40 but glad to be your baby .......................................
