I have always had a fascination with rainbows. It is such an awesome display of God’s splendor. If I am anywhere around a camera when I see one, I take a picture. This one was last year taken from my back door. You can faintly see the double one on the top right of the picture. The most beautiful one I ever saw I was in Owensboro. By the time I could get to that $1 store on Frederica to buy a disposable camera, it was gone. But, I have the memory burned in my mind. That is what we are to do with God’s word too, burn it in our minds, our hearts, keep it close so we may use it at any time for God’s glory. My friend had a miracle today, God’s glory showed through. We see that rainbow. Thank you to all you who prayed. God is good.
Did I Say Back Pain???? April 23, 2008
If I look back a week, what I thought was back pain doesn’t compare …………tonight………let’s just say when you walk out a door and walk off a stoop and fall into a bed of petunias and then to the driveway………….need I say more? Last night after small group that was exactly what I did. I twisted my ankle, my knee is swollen, my lower back is throbbing and my neck is too stiff to turn, PLUS it broke 3 fingernails!! But just as much as that hurts, I feel bad for tearing up the newly planted bed of petunias at my friend’s house, they were so pretty before I got there. I owe her some new flowers! I just didn’t realize that the steps went to the right and I went straight. THUD!!!!!! Boy, do I feel dumb (and sore). My daughter says I can’t go out after dark anymore!!!
I Should Know Better April 18, 2008
Yesterday was such a beautiful day. I got home from work about 5:30, looked around the kitchen for something to cook for supper, F came home and said he was going to mow the yard. Well, it was too pretty outside to just sit on the couch, so I went out and started weeding the flower beds. Here is where the “I should know better” comes in. I finished about dark, went in started supper, and then sat down on the couch while food was in the oven. The timer goes off, but oops……I can’t get off the couch. I am SO down in my back. I haven’t been this bad for a while. Hurts to sit, hurts to stand, hurts to lay. I couldn’t go to sleep – just not a good thing. Finally around 3am I gave up and took a muscle relaxer, so the 3 hours of sleep I did get last night just happened to be right through the earthquake. I haven’t decided if that is a good thing or bad thing! Anyway, next time one of you hear me say something about weeding my flower beds, remind me I am too old to do that!!!!! (This is last year’s picture of my peonies)
See you Sunday at church.
Spring fever April 10, 2008
Well, I officially have spring fever. It is not because the schools have spring break this week, my son is off from student teaching this week, and he went to Louisville with the baseball team he helps coach, but no, my spring fever comes from the Masters Golf Tournament starting today. I can’t wait to start playing golf regularly (in warm weather) Even if you are not a golfer, the Augusta National Golf Course is absolutely beautiful. Dogwoods, azeleas, green trees, beautiful green fairways and greens………….God’s handiwork in an awesome display. Athletic abilities in an awesome display. I can’t wait for my season to begin. Yup, I caught the fever today. There will be golf soon. Can’t wait.
