Good Evening my dears...
A lovely sunny day here today after yesterday's storm..
We had snow and then rain so it was pretty icy out there this morning...
I did not venture out but Terry and Dustin went to watch one of our grandsons play basketball... His birthday is on Monday and he will be 14.. Where has the time gone?
I wish I could have joined them but my throat is still a mess.. ugh...
Oh well.... I am sure he enjoyed having his uncle and Grandpa there..
I went to let Sammi out the back door and there was such a racket in the apple trees out back.. I looked and the trees were full of grosbeaks..
They were snacking on the apples.. I think..
Or trying out the icicles... grin..
I ran to get my camera and headed for the sun room so I could get a better pic and tripped over the footstool in my rush and of course they heard the racket and took off...
Yes... I am a klutz..grin..
As I waited for them to come back I checked out my plants in there..
The ivy and geraniums are doing great..
Plants have a way of lifting my spirits..
Do they have that effect on you?
I was very pleasantly surprised to find that there were a couple of new babies.. Yeah!!
Three new Aloe Vera plants...
I guess the birds aren't coming back..
I don't have a lot of patience, I guess...
The sun is starting to go down on this last Saturday
in January, 2012
Terry should be home soon and I need to start getting supper ready..
I did make an apple pie today.. smile..
My dear Mother made me four batches of pie crust to freeze..
She loves making it and I detest doing it.. grin..
Anyway, sweet ladies the lamps are on and the fish and lemons are in their packets..
Do you ever make them?
Another lovely day drawing to a close...
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day...
I guess I won't get to church.. I would not like to pass this virus along to anyone ... Especially, to any of the elders..
The wonderful thing about God, though. is that He will be right here with me at home, too..
When I bow my head or get down on my knees He is right there..
He is available.. And waiting for me to call on Him..
I love His presence..
I heard a sermon one time that talked of how Jesus is standing in the shadows.. Just waiting for us to whisper His Name..
But so many times instead of reaching out to Him we reach for a book or a TV remote or perhaps our laptops..
He just waits there so patiently for our hearts to reach
out to Him..
Sometimes, I imagine Him standing in the corner of our bedroom by the window.. Just waiting for me to call on Him..
Or when I am alone and needing Him I can just feel Him there..
He is such a faithful God.. Right?
Thanks for dropping by and being a part of my life this way..
And God bless you for all the dear encouraging emails and comments that I have received this past week.. You are all so dear to my heart..
Love and Prayers
Standing somewhere in the shadows you will find Him..
And you will know Him by the nail prints in His hands..
