Good Morning my dears... 

Happy Monday to you all.. 

We had a wonderful blessed Sunday and woke up to a beautiful Monday morning.. 

I just wanted to share that my sweet friend Trace over at 

has awarded me the versatile blogger award.. 

As I told Trace I am an award free blog but she only nominated one blog and as it was me I could not turn it down.. 

She is a dear girl and we both feel as though we have known each other for a long time.. 
If she likes something you can be sure that I like it, too.. smile.. 

And the fact that we both love the Lord Jesus binds us together.. 

Please go over and check out Trace's BLOG as she is full of sweet wisdom and stitches up a storm.. 

I am supposed to tell 7 things about myself that you do not know.. 
I think really that you girls know it all.. smile..

Let's see.. 

1.  I was married when I graduated from high school.. 
2.  We will be married 42 years next month.. 
3.  When I am gone my children will find many half finished short or long stories in my list books.. grin.. 
4.  I almost always wear black.. 
5.  I will not fly... in a plane or anything else.. 
6.  I love cats..
7.  I would dearly love to have... 3 sheep, 2 goats, 1 mule, 12 chickens, and 1 turkey...
I just read these to Terry and he said that the mule was already here...LOL... He's funny!!

You have all of my deep dark secrets.. grin.. 
I am to nominate some other blogs which I do by asking you to read my blog list.... smile.. 
They are all wonderful and none of us deserve an award any faster than the next one.. 
Thank you dear TRACE for all your kind words.. 
I appreciate it very much.. 

God bless all you sweet girls today.. 
Love and Prayers,
