Blessings to a day better than yesterday!

Waking to the chill of cold rain coming down makes one wonder if they should just stay in bed.  Well I don't sleep as well as I should so staying in bed later than 6am makes me much slower throughout the day....I was just reading my sister's advise to me in my last post, and she's so right...feeling the way I do I can't do anything but to take little naps..I don't have the energy to do much else.   I'd taken one of those little naps last evening, and upon waking I walked out into the livingroom to find Dewey scrubbing the floors...he said he didn't want me to feel I had to do it today as it's been almost a week.  Sometimes I wonder if we have little set backs like allergies, and colds just to make us stop and rest!! ( and let hubbys show how much they love us!!!
I have been reading through the Message after reading my Bible.

The Way of Love
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut,
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always "me first,"
Doesn't fly off the handle,
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn't revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
01 Corinthians 013 from the Message.

Well, time to get back to the recliner for a little nap...see Sis I listen well!!!   Love and blessings to all.

The past 3 weeks

Good morning!!
For the last 2 weeks I've been caring for Dewey (my hubby) because he has pneumonia...3 visits to the doctors, yesterday being the most recent.  As I listened to his dr, Ginny, tell him he was still wheezing, but was finally getting better I happened to cough.  She turned to me and said, my goodness lets take a look at you!!   Yep, I also have pneumonia, and was prompty given 4 perscriptions...Prednisone, an inhaler, strong antibiotic, and Tessenex to help with the congestion and wheezing...Wouldn't you know it!!!   Now he has to care for's supposed to rain all weekend so we will be staying in eating some homemake soup....these kinds of illnesses don't affect me the same way they do him. 
I've been up most of the night hurting all over so I finally too 2 pain pills, and came in here to check msgs!   I can't post an photos that I took recently as I've "lost" my I know it wasn't working as well as it did when I first got it, but I sure need to be able to keep up on the things I create so I can share with you all.   I was going to get one of those old throw away camera....but....I think I will order a new one from fromQVC..they have some good prices on them!!!
I'm hoping that all of you stay clear of this junk we have, it started with all the pollen in the air....sigh!!!
Take care and have a wonderful weekend folks...Miss visiting all your blogs!  This puter is getting old like MOI...hehehe!!!
love ya!

Easter 2012

My day started with putting some meatballs in bbq sauce to slow cook while I went to Church to hear my Preacher give is wonderful account of the meaning of Easter.  As I've said before it's bitter/sweet to read the accounts of what led up to the crucifixion of our precious Christ Jesus!  After Church we left for a party to celebrate the life of one of God's children who's been facing the pain of cancer!  It was good to be with her and her family, hubbies ex-wife, and dear sisters and bros who continue to be an extension of our family!  It was a treat to see everyone and to be in our Host and Hostess' beautiful home's been a year!  I have to tell you a little about Ken and Sherree Ryder...I believe she's the youngest of 5 sisters and one bro.  They  have opened 2 gyms, and are about to open 3 more...Sheree was a body builder, and made a big hit when competing.  Have to say I admire their love for one another and for family!
Here are some photos of their awesome home...and so of the people who joined us for the celebration of Joyce's life.

Blessings till next time.
In Christ's love and grace!!

What Easter means to us.

Boy we have had morning temps around 30 degrees the past couple days. I'd planted one tomato plant in a barrel planter sitting on my front deck thinking that Spring was indeed here...NOT  Yes, the plant is still thriving cuz we cover it each night to keep the frost off it.  We don't usually plant in our raised beds till end of April or beginning of May.   Have to wait and about you folks, do you plant a garden these days?  It's a big help through out the winter to have home canned goods to eat...too much salt in the canned foods we buy!
Dewey and I have started to walk to help with our weight lose, however after my second day I was having so much pain in my hips and legs I have realized with the Fibro and bad hip I need to do it every other day...Oh the blessings of being older..hehehe
I had my last Bazaar for awhile...that too has become difficult to do...perhaps when I get this hip replaced I'll be almost as good as think??? hhehehe
I was wondering what time of year was your favorite??  For me it's Spring with all the new growth popping up with awesome leaves covering all our bare trees...oh and the Red buds, Dogwoods, and daffodils!! The smell is like walking into a Perfume factory...I know for some it's ALLERGY Time...sorry for you folks.  

Easter is upon us, those of us who believe know that on that day so long ago Jesus was Crucified on the Cross at Gethsemane. He was layed in a tomb then on the third day Mary Magdalene, Mary HIS mother, and Salome came with spices so they could embalm Jesus.  The found the large stone covering the enterence to the tomb rolled away, and thanks be to God he'd been raised up....oh my heart can only wonder how they felt when they saw the man dressed all in white sitting in the tomb.  What would we have done had we been there??  We'd probably fall to our knees giving thanks to God for giving us this awesome free gift of life everlasting with HIM for all eternity provided we believe Christ Jesus died for our sins...I think about how Jesus was treated as they placed the crown of thorns upon his head...those thorns were not little ones, but large maybe 3 inches long.  My heart cries for all that he endured, but it also feels so blessed to know it was for our salvation. 
We are blessed with God's grace and peace through all things here on earth...following HIS word is probably the hardest yet best thing we humans do throughout our lives.

A little about me!

My photo

Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren.  My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry.  On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs.  Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
