Great Granny

A tribute to my Granny.        She was a great woman!

I miss her.      She was tiny, but gave great hugs!!         And love radiated out from her.

She’s been up in heaven for 12 years now.        I know she greeted Jeffery with a big ole hug, when he got there!!        (And maybe even a pot of dumplings, and some nanner pudding??)

Today is exactly 2 years since my BIL, Jeffery went home to the Lord.

So many changes.         So much suffering, and grieving for him.         He can’t ever be replaced.

Yes, life has gone on, but hearts are still broken, lives still shattered.          Pieces still being picked up.

He hasn’t shed any tears.       We’ve shed oceans full.

He is still dancing, and rejoicing in the presence of Jesus.        We are still going on with life, missing him, looking forward to the day we get to go up to heaven to join him.

We watch, and wait for the day of the Return of Jesus, in the clouds!!

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
Please get ready to be in heaven with us!!
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Ark Art

Bwahahaha!!

At first, I titled this : Animal Amusements”, and wrote

“Mea culpa!  Mea culpa!

Please forgive me!       I’ll try harder next time!”

But, I took one several more seconds to brainstorm, and voila!

Here we have Ark Art!

Happy Monday!!

Accomplished, Actually

I feel such a sense of accomplishment today!!   I was about to say “It’s not even noon yet, and already I’ve.”    Then I made the mistake of glancing at the clock.   It’s 12:49 pm.   But,  I decided that my sense of accomplishment is not dictated by the minute hand on the clock.

I have accomplished a lot already today!!   I woke up!!   In a good mood!   Feeling rested!! Read my Bible!

Ate a healthy breakfast of oatmeal!

Why would I show you an empty bowl??      Cuz I told ya, I ate it already!

{Guess I should dispense with the exclamations marks now!   Oops, sorry, last one, okay?}   Wrote in my diary.   Washed the dishes, ALL of them.   Found my stamps,

slob, humor, stamps

after just texting someone to borrow 3.   Picked up the 3 baby bibs outta the floor, that had fallen off the shelf, and put in a bag to donate.   (PPJr couldn’t even wear new born stuff the day she was born.   Who decides how big a baby’s neck should be anyway???)  

Cleaned off the side kitchen counter [-ish].   I put away the gaggle of plastic bags there, and removed the 2 shopping bags, and hung them on the dining room chair.

What?? For now, that’s where they go, since they don’t have an assigned home yet.  

Drank 2 glasses of water, refilled the pitcher,

answered all my emails.  Commented on the 3 blogs that popped up.   Talked to my Mama, and DD1.   Ate 3 ice cream bars.   Well, that one right there probably shouldn’t count as an accomplishment…

 

God’s Gift

My friend, Elizabeth, from the Comfortable Coop, also wrote a wonderful Resurrection Sunday post, just like Cami’s, that I re-blogged yesterday.

 

http://thecomfortablecoop.com/2017/04/14/my-easter-to-do-list/

It reminded me once again, to give first place to Jesus, my Savior, always!!       Resurrection Sunday, (Easter), is to celebrate His resurrection from the dead!!   He gave His life on the cross, for our salvation, just because He loves us!!      Praise the Lord forever!

God’s not dead, He is alive!!

Hosanna!
