" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

Dipping my toe into the 21st century.....or the end of the 20th, maybe?


Seeing as how this is a weB LOG, I think I'll record, for posterity, the fact that I've finally gotten myself a cellphone.  Granted, it is a prepaid TracFone, but, like I say, I'm testing the waters !

I was out for 2 whole hours this morning, running errands and restocking this place with groceries.......I ate mostly junk food while hubby was in the nursing home, except for the meals I took with him down there.......while hubby waited here, alone, at home, and it dawned on me that I had promised the daughter that I would look into getting a phone to take with me. 

I only plan to use it for emergencies, so I'm not giving out the number, but I feel much more 'in touch' now. 

So, congratulate me..........I"M IN !

Don't even ask me about texting, 'cause it ain't happenin' !

  1. Congratulations! I was 31 before my first cell phone! LOL

    My parents were pulled into the techno age too. But, they see the benefits; safety, reliability, handiness of it all!

    I really like the spoon on your header!

  5. Good for you! Its so nice to have a cell phone with you. Kind of like security. And texting isn't hard really...although it does frustrate me...I can't get used to finding the letters for each word very fast. We will be looking at phones soon...our 2 year agreement on ours is up. Fun, or frustration...we will see..=)

  6. So glad that your sweetheart is home with you! I will pray for your days. We did not get a cell phone until we could afford it, and then, it was because of my work as a tutor in the summer. Now, I will do anything to keep it! Such security in having one, I hope you do allow yourself to use it!

  7. I'm with you Dolly! My cell is a pre-paid, for emergencies only, and I don't text. When I went to renew minutes on mine and hubby's cells (both pre-paids) the other day, everyone was looking at me like I was an alien or something because I only wanted to put $5 on each phone. When I commented that the $5 was good for 60 days they all nearly passed out! I don't think they could imagine making it a WEEK on $5 worth of phone time, let alone 2 MONTHS. LOL
