Thurday - spring time in Texas...

Thursday, April 17, 2014

These are not my pictures, but it makes you not want to take walks, doesn't it.

All I've seen is a lot of dead skunks on the roads because it is a mating season.

Another night of dog training, Max did fine other than turning around to focus on DH because he was yucking it up behind me. Poor Max is bewildered. He can't quite wrap his head around the fact that there are times when he WILL have to do as I say. His life up until this point has been running at top speed around the property and digging up moles and jumping on me. Life has changed

Matthew 10:6 Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.

God help us all with our wisdom and our innocence.

Tuesday - Early morning's red moon

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

For those who missed this mornings moon for a few more winks of sleep, UT provided a great video.
Took mom to her prosthetisist in Tyler and back home for the dog training. Max did quite well despite the fact we didn't practice with him much.

Good night and good rest.

Psalm 8:3-4
3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?

God bless you in His care.

  I'm kicking myself for not remembering to watch. I had noticed how beautiful the moon was that night. We used to live in CA and I have been to Griffith Observatory when I was a child. Thanks for the video

    Good night! I am having such a hard time, esp now, keeping up with everyone with my new workout schedule. Even though I don't get over here much, I think of you often. It is so nice that DH and I pray before we workout to be better servants for Him. Isn't that what's it all about?! emoticon

Monday - Pine trees know when it's Easter

Monday, April 14, 2014

Ever noticed the Pine tree crosses on Easter Sunday?
Pine trees start their new growth in the weeks before Easter. If you look at the tops of the Pine trees two weeks before, you’ll see the yellow shoots. As the days get close to Easter Sunday, the tallest shoot will branch off and form a cross. By the time Easter Sunday comes around, you will see that most of the Pine trees will have small yellow crosses on all of the tallest shoots.

John 12:23-25 Jesus replied, "The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

God help us to know when it's Easter.

Sunday - lazy Sunday

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Noticed a new research reported on the news this morning. Married couples who attend church together are happier and stay married. Really?! What gave them a clue?

Nice peaceful Sunday to church and back. And as of today, DH and I are still married.

Proverbs 19:14 House and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.

God bless your day.

Saturday at the Pineywood Quilt festival...

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Finished the church bulletin and dropped it by the church and moved the Bible and the runner off the altar for tomorrow morning.

DH was riding with a bike club and Mom, DS and I went to the quilt show. Nice quilts but most amazing of all was the display of antique quilts. The patterns were brilliant. A young woman had brought the part of her mother's collection that had not been given to museums. Quilts dating back to the 1800 in excellent condition and reproductions of the some of the quilts. Her mother beside being a quilter, owning a quilt store and authoring quilt books had managed to collect quilts and reproduce the fabric by decade. Simply amazing.

Then I swapped out my winter clothes with my summer only to find out it would be back down in the 30s Tuesday and Wednesday for part of the day.

Exodus 35:25-26 And every skillful woman spun with her hands, and they all brought what they had spun in blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen. All the women whose hearts stirred them to use their skill spun the goats' hair.

God bless your time of mending together.

    Sounds like a great day! I made a quilt for my parents for their 25th wedding anniversary years back. I have an Irish chain partly pieced and untouched for the last five years. Need to finish that some day soon! God bless, my friend! A very blessed Easter to you and yours!

    My mom started quilting when I was in high school, a cathedral window quilt. I made a quilt for my wedding and finished it after I'd had three children. I prefer to see and quilt bags. Or wall hangings . I have a 1930s quilt I bought at flea market expo. It has a couple of holes in said maybe a mouse chewed it. Pretty though.

Love hearing about your day emoticon
