Liked the way the shadow on the wall looked in this photo.

It's not a great view, but Molly likes it, cause she can see who comes and goes on the stairs to our apartment.

Watching the blizzards on the East coast, and seeing convertibles on my way to Julie's.  Gotta love Southern CA.

Freddie enjoys a clean house too.  I can't believe he's two years old.  I've never had a Beta fish live over a year.  He fat and sassy and still comes up and bumps my finger.  Who says you can't pet a fish.  HaHa.

 We spent Sunday afternoon with our son, Myk and the family.  Max is the family dog, (my granddog haha) You can see he loves me and thinks I have a nice soft lap.

 I kept saying "Max, NO kissing on the lips!!! If you want a big wet kiss....Max is your man.

Speaking of Big...Don and I feel very small standing with Elijah and Kaleb.
Kaleb heads back to college in Illinois, so this was a chance to say good bye and take a pumpkin pie and cookies.
Elijah will celebrate his 18th birthday next week, so it was a Birthday Pie too.

Phil. 5:6 " In everything present your requests to God."

There is nothing like sharing your heart with a close and true friend.  That's must be what Charles C. Converse was thinking about Jesus when he penned this hymn.

That is my prayer today ~ to meditate on those words that remind me I can take my deepest hurts and hidden secrets.  my biggest blessings and heart of joy to Jesus in Prayer, because He is my Friend.

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer.
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care!
Precious Savior, still our refuge
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He'll take and shield three.
Thou wilt find a solace there.

Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised
Thou wilt all our burdens bear.
May we ever, Lord, be bringing
All to Thee in earnest prayer.
Soon, in glory, bright, unclouded
There will be no need for prayer;
Rapture, praise and endless worship
Will be our sweet portion there.

Can you imagine a time when we won't need to pray?  Only in Heaven!!!

Breakfast is my favorite meal.  Bring it on for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  I get bored with the usual breakfast I make so this morning I jazzed it up a bit with  a Zucchini Egg Bake.  Click for the recipe.

It's a simple recipe from Taste of Home and doesn't involve crust.    My dearest likes a little salsa and sour cream on his.

What is your favorite breakfast?

 For years my colors of choice were browns, beige, tan and cremes.  It started way back when it was popular to find out if you were a Summer, Fall or Winter.  With my auburn hair and brown eyes I was declared a "Fall" and wore those colors.  

But with Winter this year I was loving all the grays, charcoals and black.  Today at the Thrift Store I found a cute gray top with buttons and tie. (Forever 21 ~ $2.99)  A short sleeve black top with square neckline.  (Coldwater Creek ~ $1.99)  There were two John Grisham books I hadn't read, and can you believe I found both of them today for 50 cents each.  A very good day!

 A few weeks ago I won a a giveaway from Monica in Sweden.  It was her 2015 Calendar with her photographs.  It came in the mail this week and is a delightful calendar with shots from her side of the world.

This is the picture for January ~ Isn't that too cute?  Yes,  a very good day.

My visit with Elizabeth was wonderful.  She had cassettes of Pipe Organ music and most of them are Hymns.  She was amazed that I knew the words to all of them.  We played a little game ~ We read a title, and then I sang it to her.  She did not grow up in Church so many of these are new to her.  When we got to "When the Roll is Called up Yonder" I said Elizabeth when the roll is called, we will be there together and she agreed we would."  You might remember that I had the opportunity some time back to share the Gospel with her at 97, and she responded and that made IT A VERY GOOD DAY.
