Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just wanted to stop everything and just … lie down, say a prayer and go to sleep? Maybe if you go to sleep, everything that is bothering you will be gone when you wake up, or it will just work it self out without your help. My week started out that way, but If finally realized that it wasn’t me that was having the bad week! No! It wasn’t me at all! It was everyone else that was having the nightmares! After I came to this realization, everything went perfect the rest of the week! God is good and he is in control of EVERYTHING…most of all…he has your back no mater what is going on in your world. All you have to do is ask him for guidance and BAMM…everything just falls into place. We aren’t meant to go it alone. He wants us to need him, He wants to be with us in all things. All we have to do is ASK. Remember that!
Today we celebrate the United States of America coming into Freedom. Please let us all stop and say a prayer for all of the men and women in the Armed Forces that have fought to help gain that freedom AND for all of those that continue to keep us safe and FREE.
I Salute You ALL!
I also celebrated my birthday a few days ago. So here is one for that too!
So, today is my birthday, July 2nd. I actually was able to sleep in a little later this morning and while my husband was in town visiting his mother, he bought me a dozen cup cakes and a small cake to celebrate. Then he and the kids took me out to dinner at Ruby Tuesdays. Had a great time and the food was awesome. Oh and also saw my mother today and shared my cup cakes with her too. All in all, it was a great day and, thankfully, I do not feel a year older … tomorrow I might feel differently, so I will embrace it today!
Yeah… I have managed to neglect my blog again. I promised myself that I wasn’t going to do that, but, as usual, I got wrapped up in other things and neglected to make any new posts. I guess that’s not such a bad thing though. I have been to some sites, of people that I know, and they haven’t post anything in years! I guess nearly one month isn’t as bad as I might have thought but it isn’t something that I would want to do all of the time.
So… I have myself this nifty little calendar thingy and I have it marked so that I will hopefully remember to post here more often. AND…since I have a new cell phone, maybe I can figure out how to get it to remind me. The crazy thing does just about everything else!
Anyway, since my last visit we went on a mini vacation with the two oldest Grand kids. I had never been to Memphis, so that’s where we went. Now that I have been, I might venture back up that way again soon. Nice place but it sure was hot while we were there. We spent one whole day at the Zoo and one whole day at Graceland. We walked down Beal street and went to see the ducks at the Peabody Hotel while we were there too. Had a great time, but my legs were ready to get back in that truck and head home!
And I just have to say this before I post some new layouts…. Kent went to Walmart and purchased a glass type cover for the front of my phone. I like to keep one on there in the rare chance that I might drop it. I wouldn’t want to shatter the screen. So, he comes home with it and goes to put it on my phone and ……. there is NOTHING in the box. This makes me very angry. My father hated a thief and I guess he taught me to be just like him. I hate a thief… and a liar. Those are the two biggest things that I just find it very hard to tolerate or deal with. I have every intention of praying for the person that stole that cover and left the empty package for my husband to find… and purchase. I hope that anyone that reads this will feel the need to do the same because that person needs lots of prayers.
