I made a few changes in the look of my blog........guess I was bored with the same ol'-same ol'.
I think that this new look is kind of kicky and fresh, and goes with the newest quiltie picture, so that's a good thing !
Other changes........I signed up for new car insurance today. Had a little oopsy occur back in November of last year, when I accidentally backed into a parked vehicle on the parking lot of my church. Insurance paid $519., no big deal, seems to me,.........but when I got my insurance renewal invoice, they had nearly doubled my premiums ! That may be understandable to THEM, but it is not AFFORDABLE to ME !
So Geico is out, and Nationwide is in. Let's pray that there are no more incidents OR accidents ! Plus, now, I have roadside assistance, although, again, I hope I never need it !
My middle grandchild turned 7 yesterday...........Happy Birthday to Timothy Daniel, Jr. ! Wish they wouldn't grow up so fast, so far away !
I have forgotten to mention it, but I found the c.d. I had, to download Image Zone 4.0, so I'm back to using the great photo editing program that I loved ! Turns out it came with my photo printer, I think. Praise God in all things, great and small !
This is one of three beauties that bloomed together in my backyard. I forgot that I moved some bulbs, so they were a beautiful surprise to me.......and so big ! I trimmed back all of my monkey grass today as I noticed new growth in the middle. My Violets are regrowing, and already blooming, my Rhododendron bushes survived the winter and are bursting open, and my Tiger Lily is coming up. There are lots of things that I don't even recognize, but it all just gets me so excited to watch every year ! God's handiwork is just so very awesome.
My daughter and I talked gardening long-distance for an hour or more the other day, and it just makes me wish that we lived close enough to share yardwork !
" 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
