Dreaming of Summer.....


Gray Hair!!

I found my first gray hairs today. They teamed up and came in a pair!

At first I was melancholy, thinking of my lost youth. Then, the Lord helped me to remember something about gray hair being a crown of splendor. I couldn't remember exactly which verse that was so I checked the concordance. Proverbs 16:31 ~ "Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life."

Then God gave me another reminder which I need right now.
"Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he,
I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you."
~Isaiah 46:4

I will embrace these gray hairs! I may pull them out or color them from time to time, but they will keep coming back to remind me of the One who sustains me.

Happy Valentine's Day!

As M says, "We painted cookies". "Momma, Daddy, L and E". "Pretty painted cookies". "Mmm Mmm Good".
Happy Valentine's Day to my sweathearts! I love you!

Thank you

In the beginning of February, my father suffered a massive heart attack and didn't even know it! Two or three days later he became ill and went to the hospital. He was admitted with oxygen level at 50%, damaged kidneys and liver. (From lack of oxygen rich blood to those organs.) After many days of "watch and wait", the liver started to get better, his heart showed damage to the top portion and his kidneys were still not functioning properly. Not to bore you with all the details, it has been two weeks and my father went in for a Cardiac Catheterization to determine how much damage the heart sustained and to help determine the best course of treatment. The doctors came in to share the news with my dad. They all looked quite puzzled. Apparently there is no damage to my dad's heart. None. Zip, zero, zilch. Nada.
Thank you Lord, for your healing hands!

Flowers and Friends

I received these beautiful flowers from a friend. Whenever I look at them, they cheer me up and make me pause to think of all those friends in my life who are like each one of these flowers. Beautiful, unique, and full of joy. They bring a smile to my face. They pick me up when I'm down. I am blessed to have each and every one of them. Thank you, my dear friends. Thank you for bringing such beauty into my life.
