Relaxing in my recliner with a movie on the T.V. I was enjoying a mystery style movie and then of course all the commercials are stuck in there every few minutes leaving only about forty minutes of actual movie time.
Trying to ignore as many commercials as possible, I go to the pantry, get a microwave popcorn, pop it in the microwave, and when finished popping settle down to watch more of the movie when another commercial appears.
It’s a T-Mobile commercial showing various people in various activities. Have you seen it?
Suddenly 2 grown men appear and are KISSING – mouth to mouth before my very eyes. I wanted to puke!
Forget the movie! I stomped in here to the computer and wrote T-Mobile a letter!
If you would like to write or call and hopefully put a stop to this crap here’s the…
Many have seen on the news about the crazy weather that has gone across the country. Snow eye-ball high leaving cars and big rigs in ditches, flooding, ice storms, and freezing temperatures.
Here in Georgia we have broken the record from clear back to 1964 (I think) by record amounts of rain. Our normal amount for a year is 21 + inches and holy cow this is only Feb. and we have already topped 17+ inches at the time of this writing and it is still raining!
A boat was scheduled to come by and I decided I needed to get on board but…
So now I’m stuck with the next crossing. 🙂
Just a month and a half ago I was enjoying my beach. (Its not really mine but I call it that) Walking along the edge, feeling the cold air blowing across the water yet feeling some sunshine on my face. It was refreshing. I walked out to the waters edge and stuck my toes in. The water was low but cold. Brrrrr Notice the rock jetty off to the right? People go to the end of it to fish.
I decided to go down to my beach yesterday and oh my gosh!
Where’d it go?
All I see is water and more water.
It has gotten so dangerous that no one is allowed to enter. (I sneaked in for these pictures)
I shouldn’t be shocked at how many people are surprised at all the “weird” and various weather phenomenon going on. Obviously they haven’t read the Bible about what will/is taking place in these the last days. It’s all been predicted within God’s Word; floods, hurricanes, volcanoes, earthquakes, etc. And its all happening before our eyes.
To be perfectly honest – I’m ready for summer! But as Glen Burns (a chief meteorologist here) said, “I have bad news. Our rainy season starts in two weeks.”
For those in the Northern states I’m sure you’ll get a great chuckle about those of us in the South. Georgia doesn’t see snow very often and when we do we all get excited. The kids grab the sled’s, adults want to be able to brag that they made it down the road without crashing, and those of us with more common sense stay home with a cup of hot chocolate and a fire going in the fireplace.
Today was one of those days. Just 2 days ago we had bright sunshine and a warm 72 degrees in North Georgia where I live. Atlanta hit 78 degrees! In less than 36 hours we are 30 degrees and looking out my window is a winter wonderland.
After living in Wyoming through two winters I am thanking God this will be gone by morning. I’m enjoying it now but oh so thankful for it’s disappearance and warm days returning. I hate cold weather!
Here’s some pictures I hope you enjoy. And hey, you Northerners, don’t laugh too hard, we’ll be in shorts while you’re still shoveling out. 🙂
And its still snowing. We’re supposed to get about 3-4 inches and I think we will. That’s enough to build a little snowman!
Have a great day everyone and if you didn’t get snow – enjoy some of mine. 🙂
I not only received the last of the endorsements to turn into the publisher but the smiles, gratitude, and love shown by some of the residents at The Oaks at Hampton Senior living was such fun and a mighty blessing.
Lifestyle Director, Sandy listed the residents that are in wheelchairs and we gave each a hand crocheted lap afghan in the color of their choice.
We went room to room and here are the pictures that were taken. Just look at those smiles!
It is amazing how we can bring some joy and feelings of not being forgotten or loved to others by simply caring.
Have you ever prayed for patience? I used to but I don’t anymore because I have found that the Lord will answer that prayer by placing me in a position that can try my patience to the enth degree. I hope “enth” is a word, but maybe not, but you know what I mean.
I used to drive from Tennessee back to Georgia and then return to Tennessee when I lived there. (Thank God I’m back living in Ga.) Every single time I took a “short cut” across a two lane road for fifty miles I would get behind a big truck or a farmer on a tractor and have to follow them for miles with no passing zones doing 30 mph in a 55 mph zone. Grrrrrrr
Talk about trying my patience! Oh I would be upset! But if I went the interstate I would add at least fifty miles to my normally 4 hour trip so I think the Lord used that “short cut” to try my patience and I was not happy about it in the least.
There are many instances that He will put us to the test. How about standing in line at the grocery store? The infamous Walmart is known for having two registers opened on a busy day. Now that will try your patience!
I’m waiting for an endorsement to come in that has been promised for my new novel, Amy’s Quest, but, and although I really, really need to get it sent to the publisher so as not to hold up their production timelines I’m being patient about it.
We have to give the people time to read the story and because I didn’t give enough time for the very busy people I asked, I’m having to be patient.
I think in this case I’m passing the “patience test” the Lord has me in, if it is Him doing it. Instead of getting upset, I can sit back and enjoy my crocheting while I patiently await the last of the endorsements to come in.
And by the way, tomorrow I’ll be bringing many big smiles to the elderly with 14 lap afghans I have crocheted for the residents who are confined in wheelchairs. Now that’s a blessed way to enjoy being patient.
