  1. Long day.... I am so glad it is the end of the week.
  2. I resisted carrying for a long time. My DH was a firearms instructor trainer for 25 years and would constantly remind me to take a gun. We live in a prison town and escapes happen, he would become very irritated with me if he found I had not taken one with me. After a major incident happened, I rarely leave the house without some form of protection and my cell phone. The investment for the permit is nothing compared to being harmed.
  3. Very encouraging in light of the discouraging news going around. Lately, many people around me have been displaying an intense fear of the future. What ifs... I've watched and listened to them, and have been amazed at the peace that God has placed in my spirit. That still small voice reassures me, 'my God will supply all my needs, according to His riches in Glory'. Thank you.
  4. I normally stay quiet and read, but... I think this is a red flag... we have a gun shop in a small town. November 4th our business began to feel the crunch. Customers are buying us out and we are having a terrible time getting our inventory back in. All our normal reliable wholesalers are back ordered and the prices have skyrocketed.
  5. Little ones from the past: Patience Patience is in my lap, curled in a little ball. Snuggled by my tummy... I musn't let her fall. She's taught me many lessons, 'bout the time I have to use. She's always gotten her way, by scratching on my shoes. Tho I have tons of work to do, she tells me 'stop and sit'. Even when I don't want to she always makes me quit. They say 'Patience is a virtue' I would have to disagree she's a ball of fluffy furr, nestled on my knee. The End She came to us from a little boy who moved away and gave up his toy. We brought her in and looked for a name, to let her feel welcome, that wasn't too lame. She danced for joy and played with the others treating them all like sisters and brothers. She had earned her name we had no choice only one would fit properly We named her Rejoice! She'd dance and laugh, attack and play then cuddle and love in her own special way. Years have passed since that unexpected day giving us untold joy in her own special way. Our days of rescue have all since past She'll be remembered forever She was the last. Note: Tho Rejoice was supposed to be the last, we broke weak when another person came to us who was considering putting Frank to sleep, so, we adopted him 2 months ago.
  6. Frank was at it the other day during our cold weather snap. I had brought out my knee-high wool socks, which are about 3 foot long, when he decided he wanted to tunnel into one of them. After slinking in about 1/2 way, I became concerned about what he was going to do when he got to the toe of the sock. Picking up the open end to see if I would be able to stretch it enough for him to turn around, he decided to continue to the toe area, instead of letting me pull him out. Frantically, I grabbed the toe of the sock and began shaking it to see if he would slide back out. To my horror, he was stuck!!! His little body can bend but not with the tinsel strength of wool that has shrunk. I began to panic, shaking the sock more vigorously hoping somehow he would slide back out the way he came. No such luck. My DH sat white eyed on the couch across from me warning me not to shake so hard or I'd shake the stuffing out of him. Gradually, I was able to back him off from the toe area, where a quick snip of the scissors brought the whole incident to an end. There I sat in disbelief.... "Not my only warm socks!!" But... the little monster wanted to wear the sock as a sweater and refused to come out for quite some time!!??!! Here he is trying to look innocent...

    Let's Vote

    We voted last week after a 10 min. wait.
  8. Thank you Darlene & Stephanie for your stewardship.
  9. Playing puppies... how sweet. I love the big boy just watching then leaves with a "what-ever" attitude. Have you ever tried having them chase a laser pointer? Hours of fun.
  10. I'll take you up on your tissue offer, Snowmom. I tried to find a way out of my responsibilities and disappear from here so I could go there, but circumstances wouldn't allow it.
  11. I'll join in... I am grateful to God for giving me a safe and uneventful 750 mile round trip to pick up my MIL and bring her to my home for a couple of weeks. I am grateful my MIL is the sweetest lady I know. And I am grateful I can come here and have a wonderfully diverse group of people that encourages and supports its members.... Thanks for this post, it caused me to turn my thoughts back to giving God the glory for every moment of every day.
  12. It was a beautiful morning here too. A balmy 70 before the sun came up. I finished the first draft of my aunt's manuscript a couple of minutes ago, while my DH flips through the football games. The book still has illustrations to be completed. There's a list of things to do around my house, each waiting patiently for me to get off the bed and complete. I hope you all have a blessed day.
  13. Happy Birthday, I hope you had a great day. (I'm not late, it's still today on my side of the world.)
  14. Many times animal emergencies have grasp us, they can be so heart wrenching. In my prayers...
  15. God laid it on our hearts, we've been through times where our 'preps' were exclusively used & we believe we should be prepared for all contingencies.
  16. Watching the news this morning, they said the storm wasn't over and could pick up again. Still praying you all are OK.
  17. Haven Ministries: Anchor Devotional Restoring Lost Love “Forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love.” (Colossians 3:13-14) Isaac and Rebecca’s love for each other began with answered prayer (Genesis 24:12-17). Later, they were divided in their affections. Isaac had a special tie to his son Esau, while Rebecca favored Jacob. This, no doubt, caused tension. Are you in a relationship where affection and trust have degenerated into mistrust and anger? Paul gives us helpful advice in three parts in Colossians so we don’t become hardened and bitter. First, we need to “bear with each other” (3:13). It’s easy to lose our cool and react negatively. But bearing patiently with each other provides a basis for rebuilding bridges rather than burning them. Secondly, we are to forgive, regardless of an admission of guilt from the other party. Ask yourself, “Can I pray for this person?” If so, you are ready to forgive. Thirdly, we are to “put on love.” It defines us. With the Lord‘s help, we can remain gracious and civil. Don’t let the habit of justifying resentment take hold. Begin a new course of action that will restore your relationships rather than divide. INSIGHT: Restoring lost love is not up to me alone, but a restoring attitude is. Lord, keep me free from the poison of resentment. ------------------------------------------------------- It's water therepy for me today, I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
  18. I'm busted! Rational Portrait of the Mastermind (INTJ) All Rationals are good at planning operations, but Masterminds are head and shoulders above all the rest in contingency planning. Complex operations involve many steps or stages, one following another in a necessary progression, and Masterminds are naturally able to grasp how each one leads to the next, and to prepare alternatives for difficulties that are likely to arise any step of the way. Trying to anticipate every contingency, Masterminds never set off on their current project without a Plan A firmly in mind, but they are always prepared to switch to Plan B or C or D if need be. Masterminds are rare, comprising no more than, say, one percent of the population, and they are rarely encountered outside their office, factory, school, or laboratory. Although they are highly capable leaders, Masterminds are not at all eager to take command, preferring to stay in the background until others demonstrate their inability to lead. Once they take charge, however, they are thoroughgoing pragmatists. Masterminds are certain that efficiency is indispensable in a well-run organization, and if they encounter inefficiency-any waste of human and material resources-they are quick to realign operations and reassign personnel. Masterminds do not feel bound by established rules and procedures, and traditional authority does not impress them, nor do slogans or catchwords. Only ideas that make sense to them are adopted; those that don't, aren't, no matter who thought of them. Remember, their aim is always maximum efficiency. In their careers, Masterminds usually rise to positions of responsibility, for they work long and hard and are dedicated in their pursuit of goals, sparing neither their own time and effort nor that of their colleagues and employees. Problem-solving is highly stimulating to Masterminds, who love responding to tangled systems that require careful sorting out. Ordinarily, they verbalize the positive and avoid comments of a negative nature; they are more interested in moving an organization forward than dwelling on mistakes of the past. Masterminds tend to be much more definite and self-confident than other Rationals, having usually developed a very strong will. Decisions come easily to them; in fact, they can hardly rest until they have things settled and decided. But before they decide anything, they must do the research. Masterminds are highly theoretical, but they insist on looking at all available data before they embrace an idea, and they are suspicious of any statement that is based on shoddy research, or that is not checked against reality. Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Dwight D. Eisenhower, General Ulysses S. Grant, Frideriche Nietsche, Niels Bohr, Peter the Great, Stephen Hawking, John Maynard Keynes, Lise Meitner", Ayn Rand and Sir Isaac Newton are examples of Rational Masterminds.
