Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Fhoto Friday

This prism thingy was a gift from my boss. She told me to hang it in a window and enjoy. When the sun hits it just right, it fills the house with all kinds of dancing lights. I took the following pictures through the prism. Kinda different...huh?

Be sure and check out Natalie at Fhoto Friday, she is one good photographer!

*For those of you who do not know about my Mom and why I started this blog, click here. Now, fast forward 2 years and 5 months; still waiting on a heart transplant. She is able to be home with a permanent IV line that is delivering her crucial meds that are keeping her going. To which we are so very thankful for! God is so good!

Mom is back home. No big news today, just doing about the same. They are keeping a close check on her sugar. Her numbers are not where they want them. Other than that, all is well. Mom would be so proud I put it like know she is just fine;-) lol!!!

I'll leave today with some scripture that comforts me when I'm wondering when and why regarding Mom.
-Deuteronomuy 29:29 NIV; "The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us."
-Proverbs 3:5 NKJV; "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding"
-Romans 8:28; "And we know all things work together for good to them that love God"

He has a plan and He's working it out for Mom's good and His glory! So I'm trusting Him!

Thank you all for your prayers!

Mom's in B'ham today for a check-up. Please say a prayer for a safe trip and a good report. I'll be back later today with an update.

As for the sleepless nights.....

Did you know that Hammondville has a river running through it with alligators:) lol!!!

Weird Dreams and Sleepless Nights

K. So I'm going through a bought of sleepless nights due to some very weird dreams. I do that from time to time. And I'm flat worn out from all the tossing and turning. I'm ready for a good nights sleep. Any suggestions?

Note to self: what happens from blog overload!

You should get a kick out of this one.....

Apparently after reading blogs over the past few days, my mind made it's own version of Holly's and Lisa's vacations. Here it goes........Hubby and I were in South America, (guessing Deedra's post promted the location) on vacation and we walk into this huge Olympic size swimming pool arena. We take our seats to watch the show and lo and behold, we look down and see none other than Luke and Lisa. Lisa was swimming with the dolphins;-) lol!! I'm talking Lisa had some awesome maneuvers in and out of the water. Those dolphins were flipping her up and out of the water so high and she was turning all sorts of acrobatic stunts. Then, we turn from them to this guy we know from church, RT, and he's wearing Tenn. orange from head to toe. Y'all he's a die hard Alabama fan! lol!!!!

Interpret please?



P.S. Your welcome Lisa! lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I'm still alive. Just snowed under with life. Which I'm very thankful for. God has blessed me beyond measure. And I try not to complain;-)

Spring Break was tomorrow? Really, they speak for themselves.

As for Mom she is doing about the same. We had a little funny at church yesterday. Her pump started beeping, so she exits the building. I wait a few minutes, still hear beeping, and go and check on her. The pump is saying that there is air in the line. Ok, last time I watched a movie, air in the line was not a good thing. I call the # on the pump, leave a message, and wait. They called right back and walked me through priming the pump to get the air out of the line. Note: air in the line in a main artery causes concern. Air in a large vein, not so much. Whew!!!! Now ya know:-) Meanwhile, the church is all staring at sister P at the piano wondering what's up with Mom. Sister P proceeded to explain it was just her pump, no phone call today.

As for Mawmaw, she is not doing so well now. Please remember her in your prayers. She is having pain in back/hips and cannot walk and has a cold. Hospice and her nurses are taking good care of her. We are so blessed that she is in a very caring environment! God will supply all of our needs!!

Don't know about you Chrono Bible readers, but these familiar faces and events we've been reading as of late, are such a blessing. I love the book of Psalm being intertwined with Samuel. With all Saul's jealousy and rage, these are reminders of how we are to react when the enemy is at our heels. That no matter what, enemy or foe, we should keep our vows to God and give thanks always!

Here are some of my favorite verses from last week. Psalm 56: 8) "You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. 9) My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help. This I know: God is on my side! 10) I praise God for what he has promised; Yes, I praise the Lord for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?

This should make us all smile.

Psalm 56: 13.....So now I can walk in your presence, O God, in your life-giving light.

Love to all,

I'm Learning.....'s OK if I can't be everywhere all the time.'s OK if my beds don't get made everyday.'s OK to eat cheerios for supper occasionally.'s OK dust bunnies have a party under my bed, furniture, etc.

While all of the above is OK there are some things that are a MUST.'s a MUST that I pray daily.'s a MUST that I read God's Word daily.'s a MUST that I tell my family how much I love them daily.'s a MUST I count my blessings daily.'s a MUST I sit and be still noise, no distractions, just me and's amazing what I learn from Him about myself and how to handle certain situations.'s a MUST I sing of praises to Him.'s a MUST I Stand!

Ephesians 6:13 (King James Version)
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Y'all have a good day!!
