Ever wake up and the first thing out of your mouth is a mistake, and you want to take it back, but it's too late.  Like toothpaste ~ once it's out of the tube there is no putting it back.  Life can be messy like that, can't it.  (Guess you know how I woke up this morning.)

". . . .As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten.  Therefore be zealous and repent. . . . "  Revelation 3:14-22

What's He saying to you today?
To live a life that pleases Christ.
It's crucial to obey His voice;
When He reveals our sin to us,
Repentance is the wisest choice.

Repentance restores and renews our intimacy with the Lord.  Thank you Jesus.  I love You.  Amen.

Have a great weekend...and keep the cap on the toothpaste.

Community Thrift Store

When Martha was here visiting we found a Thrift Shop we had never been too.  It was big, and lots of things, so yesterday my dearest and I went "junking" there.

He found a really cool cane (at our age you never know when you're going to need one..HaHa) and I found two pretty glass trays with poppies and another John Grisham book "Ford County" which takes you back to the location of his first book "A Time to Kill".

We passed another Thrift Store on the way home, but didn't have time to another day, and another adventure into the junking world.

Creative Tuesday took a new twist that was a lot of fun.  The theme is "Found Object" ~ The idea is to find an object, lay it on a piece of paper and create a picture.  The possibilities are endless, but I chose a pair of finger cut gloves.  I laid the glove on my sketch pad.

With my Prismacolor pencils I added fingers with nail polish.  I think it turned out pretty good.  This was quick and fun, and I know you'll be delighted with all the ideas other artists came up with.  To see them, just click on the CT badge on my sidebar.

  • Don and I have started to enjoy "bun~less" hamburgers as we cut carbs.  Believe it or not under all those good things, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions and mushrooms is a sirloin burger patty.   Mayo, mustard and ketchup...of course but NO bun.

  • On my way to Target, I saw a group of teenagers by the High School holding up car wash signs.  They did a great job and it was a reminder of all the car washes we were involved with when our kids were in school.  I bought my little Nissan Sentra new in 2000.  She still runs so good, and with a new paint job, looks good too.

  • My dearest had lunch at MiMi's with a friend and brought me home a blueberry muffin.  What a thoughtful guy.

  • We buy half and half by the half gallon, and I pour it into a smaller container, and refill as needed.  When we were up North I was in a local market, and they had Organic Half and Half from a local farmer in a darling little glass bottle.  Now I have a really cute container for my half and half.

In Thy will, O Lord is my peace;
In Thy love is my rest.
In Thy service is my joy,
Thou art all my heart's desire.
Whom have I in heaven but Thee?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides Thee.
I love you.  Amen.

I trust you all will have a wonderful Sunday.
