Praise !


The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

I had THE best day......

.......and yet, it was the simplest of days !  Isn't that wonderful?

I'm not rich in material things, but I'm oh so rich in God's love ! 

I live in an old, rented house happy to have a home..........and today we put up plastic to keep the rain off of the back porch.  Hung the bicycles where they'll stay dry, since I patched the roof this week with roofing tar.  Replaced the broken board in the porch, enjoyed laughs with family, talked for an hour on the phone with my daughter ........HOORAY.......SHE'S THROUGH WORKING .........and then visited another hour with galfriend, Wanda, over the phone. 

I am blessed and highly favored..........and so are YOU !
And, by the way.........did you ever see a caterpillar that looked like this?
He appeared on my porch today, and was so peculiar looking, AND SMELLING, I wish that I could have gotten a better photo. 
His eyes looked painted fact, he looks like something from the mind of Jim Henson and the muppets.  He's in Heaven now, right.......maybe he's helping in the design department.


  1. Oh, can I empathize. I've been through some really hard times, but feel so blessed to have learned that there are so many things that spark gratitude!

  2. When upon life's billows you are tempest tost,
    When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings name them one by one,
    And it will surprise you what the LORD has done!
    I'm singing for you, and with you, my dear Dolly!

  3. Glad that you had a good day. Is that caterpillar real??? It looks like it is made from fabric.

  4. I feel a sort of sorriness for the people who aren't able to stretch themselves, be content with what they have, and reach deep down inside for strength. It is during these times we grow-in strength, mercy, grace and closer to Him. It is an honor!

    Cute bug! He looks like something from Ranger Rick!

    Enjoy today and watch out! Just when we're feeling good, someone decides to try and wreck the party and tempt us to do something truly stupid! LOL

  5. sounds like a nice peaceful day. that is one cute caterpillar....i have never seen one before.


Thanks for stopping by !
