Mummu and Ellie

Yesterday Mummu called and asked if she could come up and visit with her good friend Ellie. I have known Ellie all my life, and Mummu has known her since she was 18 years old ~ for 73 years. Nice to see the precious friendship they have maintained through marriages, children, illnesses, losses of children and husbands and all of the other joys and sorrows that go along with life.

Grains of Sand

Psalm 139:17-18 (New International Version)

17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!

18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake,
I am still with you.

Set my Feet on a Rock

Psalm 40:1-3
I waited patiently for the LORD;
He turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
He set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the LORD.

Sometimes the mud and the mire can pull us down and overcome us. Sometimes we cry out and feel as if our hearts will burst, as if our prayers are bouncing back to us, as if we are too insignificant to utter the words again. Will anyone hear them? Why would He care about me?

But He will hear our cries ~ and put a new song in our mouth. We must continue to trust and obey and to BELIEVE, from the bottom of that slimy pit, that we are FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made ~ Loved with an Everlasting Love! We must believe in our hearts that He does listen, that He cares for us and that the enemy will not take up residence and make us feel insignificant.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Fight the good fight!

Pray for Our Heroes ~ Defending Us

My cousin left today to serve our country in Kuwait for about a year. Please pray for him and for his wife and four babies at home.

Funny for a Monday

I watched this video this morning and got a good chuckle out of it. I love Anita Renfroe ~ she is so real! Thankful I still have my "Romeo" ~ through all the struggles over the years, I admire him even more. So glad that the tough times made us stronger and the joy so outweighs anything else. Thankful, thankful, thankful.

Some of My Brimfield Finds

A few of my new pieces of flatware from Brimfield. Got three new sterling pieces and a few new sets of silverplate. Aren't they pretty? Love, love, love them!

When I was 18 I worked for a local magazine doing their typesetting. One of the articles that I did the typing and layout for, was an article on the Brimfield Antiques Show. So, after couple of *ahem* decades, I finally made it there today! I was so excited! Here are a few of the things I saw. I bought a few things too . . . . will post those pictures later. Can't wait till May for the next one!
