" 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

Praise and Glory to God !

Today I received my phone call from the Social Security Office setting up my survivor/widow's benefits.  I turn 60 next month and will become elible.  Of course, there is a percentage loss for taking it earlier than full retirement age, but I feel that this is the safer thing to do.

 The job that I am working is very labor intensive for someone of my age and weight, and I don't know how long I can keep it up.  For now, I will just play it by ear, and I may look into getting fewer hours assigned to me in the coming year, but would want to be assured that I would still be working the same position that I am now. 

Anyway, it feels good to have this taken care of.  I wasn't sure that I would also be eligle for Medicare when I turn 65, but the young man assured me that I am. 

I haven't gotten to do anymore quilting, except for making myself another potholder to carry with me for warming my dinners in the microwave at work.

Today is a beautiful, typical Fall day, and it is my day off, so I hope to clear some things out of that shed, and perhaps do a bit more 'clorox cleaning'. 

So, TA-TA for now............(where in the world did THAT come from?)


  1. Dolly! I always smile when I see that you have posted. It's so good to see you here.
    I am so happy to see that you will get social security. I wasn't sure how old you were, you sure don't look 60!
    I was so thankful, when Mark died, that the people at the social security office were so helpful, patient and kind. My head was spinning, especially since he was so young and it was so unexpected (he was 53 and had a heart attack), I didn't have time to think!
    Hopefully, you will be able to wittle down your work hours gradually until you find what works for you, both physically and financially.
    Come back soon...y'hear?
    God bless,

  2. Hi Dolly, is your cat in the header Simamese? (sorry about the spelling) It is gorgeous! You young thing...just turning 60! I will be 70 in Jan. I"m glad for you to get S.S. hope it will be all you need and more. My health is not so good right now, but sometimes its better off and on. I'm knitting and somehow made a huge mistake wh ich when I tried to fix made it look even more awlful! Such is life. Hope you have a restful Lord's Day. Ta! (I think thats from the british folks)


Thanks for stopping by !
