Got this from a friend on facebook...and I like it.

Let us all ask God for wisdom, wit, and grace...Let our tongue be as gold when accusers talk like clay. Let us be warriors when giants call our name, to be His ambassadors, and speak of a higher place.

Easter Sermon Video - True Love by Phil Wickham

I know it is not Easter time. But.....it is always a good time to remember what He did for us. This song has really hit my heart thismorning...so I thought I would share it.

Tim Tams!!!


They have Tim Tams at Wal -Mart!!! Only in three flavours though. (plain, dark chocolate and caramel) I am hoping that they will get the double coated ones too! (you can never have too much chocolate on a Tim Tam!)

Proper way to eat: Bite off opposite corners (see pic) and then stick one end in the hot beverage of your choice and suck on the other end like a straw till you have liquid in your mouth. Then shove the whole thing in your mouth quickly because it is about to melt.haha

C.S. Lewis

I think I need to actually read some of his books. Every time I see a quote from him....I love it. But I have never read anything but quotes from him.

Distracted again...

Trying to get caught up on every ones blogs.......(working on Cheryl's right now)...and somehow ended up on youtube watching videos of an artist that I had never heard before. (Jill McCloghry) and then.....somehow ended up on Jill's blog and loving it! Then.....ended up hearing a song that she wrote that I am playing over and over and over again. "Strength of My Heart - Maxs Songs" (my poor husband put ear phones on and listened to something else)hehe This song is so tender and gentle...it is soothing to my soul.

Sometimes....I just don't know what to think....or if to think at all.

It is quite possible that I just "might" have an addiction...

It is not however to this game. I am quite competitive...I like having the high score. On facebook I get to compete with any of my friends that decide to waste some of their time playing such games. On this game...I am rarely without the highest score among others. Usually only happens when I don't have time to play. I am good. I get medals and I LOVE all the kewl noises they have....I LOVE beeping and I LOVE the sound of squeaky doors. Especially if I know that it could possibly annoy someone else.hehe (not mischievous at all)

Seriously though...I come by it honestly. In my house where I grew up...we were always trying to get the high score on some game or another. It was not about the game really. It was about being the best at something and getting the recognition. Someone saying "nice score" and playing for hours to try to beat it was a really great feeling.

Now....if only I could be putting such dedication towards some other more important things that I have been procrastinating on.

Welcome a new blogger people!!!:o)

My sister-in-law.....and friend.......has now joined us!

Check out her blog!

What did you wake up to?





















My neighbor and I are going to put our mail boxes on the same post now...since we have to get new ones...they suggested saving a bit of money.
The police came and took a report.....and as I was cleaning up the mess I was thinking about what the car that hit it could look like.....and I was hoping it was damaged beyond repair.....then I felt bad for hoping that.

Life is hard....no doubt about it...it just is.

I thank God for the grace to endure...and the freedom to be able to have joy and be content in every circumstance.

In honour of my friend Holly:o)

Things that I did not do today...

I did not spend all day trying to catch up on her blog. (and I will not finish that up tomorrow either...there is WAY too much stuff to do for me to do that)

I did not drink all of the broth off of my soup and then plaster way too much butter and salt on the rest of it before eating it. (I would never do that)

I did not talk to my dog as though she understood me all day. (I NEVER do that)

I did not listen to song after song of Brian Adams. (that would not be edifying to my spirit)

I did not have a bath at two o'clock in the afternoon. (there is WAY too much stuff to get done to waste my time relaxing)

Contentment

I am tired of sentences coming out of my mouth (or just going thru my head) that start with things like: "I wish we had...." or "I can't wait till...." or one of the worst is "We REALLY need to..."

Help me Lord to be happy with what we have!

Things I am thankful for today...

1. We have a beautiful house
2. Lots of wood to burn this winter
3. Family living near by
4. Lots of friends that are like family
5. My husband loves me despite my quirks
6. My sister loves me despite my quirks
7. My Australia friend is coming to visit! (only 35 more sleeps...but who is counting?)
8. Shyla loves to play with Snickers (no...not the chocolate bar...the dog)
9. God NEVER gives up.
10. God loves my family even more than I do...so even if I don't know where one of them is...He does and is very much interested in his life.
11. I am SO thankful that this list is pouring out of me...without even having to take time to think!:o)

Trying to get caught up!

Every time I neglect my blog world....I miss it...and end up doing a lot of reading to get all caught up on everyones blog! And.....as I read thru I see some different ideas that make me want to do a post about something else.lol Makes it hard to get caught up with such distractions. So instead of re-typing it all out. I will just let you go read what I just read...and then commented on.
