  • Today's kick in the butt

    10/24/2016 8:37:23 AM, by BLUEROSE73

    I realized this morning that I've really slacked off of my running for the past few days. I took Thursday off. I had cramps Friday. I didn't go Saturday or Sunday either. This morning I woke up with a sore hip, so I decided to head out and walk rather than run. I'm glad I did. I finished my... Read more

    October 24, 2016 WE KNOW THE OUTCOME While on earth, Jesus did nothing wrong yet He was accused and found guilty. He was made fun of and spit on. His torture was just beginning yet He remained calm because He knew the outcome. When we are being made fun of or ridiculed for being a Christian, we... Read more

    I had a good Sunday with the GD'S. My 3-year-old definitely has the snack bug. She asks for snacks a LOT. Sometimes, I say okay. Sometimes, I say let's wait until... Sometimes, I say well, let's have lunch...or whatever the next meal is. Honestly, I just do not want her to be like me when it c... Read more

Not really happy about that this late, so I'm thinking about going to sleep on Crystal's bed. We will see what I do later.... Read more

    We went to a concert at a church. It was a really nice time these were good musicians and yet not professional. It was a nice mix of music. The last performer on the Pipe organ was 99 years old and she handled it well. Needless to say she got a big hand at the end. Pat in Maine is off to be... Read more
