You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

Happy Summer

Yes, I know technically summer has not yet arrived but how did June get here so quickly? I'm still amazed. Seems like we were just putting away the Christmas decorations. Well now school is out and people will be going on vacation. People always ask me if we are going anywhere this summer. We think about it but not very long. When you are in your 80s you kind of like to be at home or at least not far from home. I would love to go to many places if I was younger and didn't have a knee problem, but under the circumstances, I like to pretty much stay at home except for maybe a day trip now and then and, of course, eating out which we do fairly regularly. And then there are trips to the grocery store or Trader Joe's. What a life. LOL

So let's begin the linking. Linking has been down some lately. I think everybody is pretty busy actually all of the time now. Thank you to those who are faithful to share on a regular basis and thank you to those who share now and then.

MEMORIAL DAY


Feeling Patriotic this morning as I ponder the meaning of Memorial Day. I'm overwhelmed thinking of all the men (and women) who have died defending our wonderful country. I am dismayed when I think of those who now seek to destroy her. My prayer is that God will always bless America but I fear that as we get further and further away from God and His principles that he may withdraw his blessings. He certainly did that to Israel in the long ago. Some people think I'm too political but I have a hard time not responding when I see American flags removed from so many places because it offends some people or when I hear that the photos of George Washington are being removed from schools because it makes some students "uneasy".

I believe I mentioned before that another reason Memorial Day is special to me is that I was baptized on Memorial Day in 1948. That is also the year that Israel became a nation again. That was back before so many of the holidays, including Memorial Day was switched to a Monday. In 1948 Memorial Day fell on a Sunday.

So now, let's begin the linking. I know many will be busy celebrating with family and friends and may not have as much time to spend here as they usually do. I understand.

YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE



Every time I hear this song it reminds me of my high school graduation. Elvis has been my favorite singer since the '50s. When I saw this on uTube I decided to share it here because I think the words are so true. If we seek the Lord and always let Him be our guide, we will never walk alone. How wonderful is that?

So now let's begin linking. Thank you to all who participate.

I always have mixed emotions about Mother's Day. It is a happy day and also a sad day. I remember when I was much younger my mom told me that on Mother's Day mothers wore a red rose if their mother was alive and a white one if she was not still alive. I haven't heard that theory in many years. I do remember being happy that my mom was still alive. Now she has been gone for almost 20 years. Where did the time go? Of course I still miss her. She was such a positive influence on my life. Now, my hubby and my two children have made every Mother's Day extra special for me. I will enjoy this one immensely. Yes, I'm sad my mom is no longer with us, and I know there are many other women who are sad this Mother's Day. I think especially of those who never had any children to call them mother. I like the way our Pastor includes all women when honoring mothers of Mother's Day whether they are mothers or not. Maybe it would be good to call it Women's Day.

Now it's time to share again. I do wish each woman who comes here a Happy Mother's Day or Happy Women's Day whichever you prefer.

Welcome Back

We've started a whole new month. The month of May. I never cease to be amazed at how quickly the months fly by and even the years for that matter. It is a reminder that this life is but a vapor as the Bible says. So, let's make the most of our time here on earth. I'm glad you chose to use some of your time today to come here and link and/or click on links that others have left.

Now let's get started. Who will be first?
