WHERE DID IT GO?

September 26, 2007

Yesterday was my baby’s birthday. I remember every detail of that day. I knew that this would be my last one, and since I already had 2 girls, I prayed and prayed for a boy. My prayers were answered on that day. It has been a whirlwind ever since. The one thing I can’t understand is: where did the time go??? It seems like it was just yesterday that I had 2 little girls and a newborn little boy. I feel like I have blinked my eyes and now it is  26 years later.(I have to admit that some days back then, I wondered, will I ever live through this??!!) I have so many good memories of the times of our small little family, the four of us, laughing, playing, Christmas mornings, etc. I kind of miss the jumble of raising kids, but only kinda.LOL   I am older now and the ole body and mind doesn’t work like it used to!  I look at my grown children now and look with wonder at how they have changed from little kids to grown adults with their own children.  I do wonder where did the time go, it flew by!  I enjoy my children as much now as I did then only now my love has grown to bursting!

SICK, SICK, SICK

September 22, 2007

I knew it was too good to be true! After all this time of being well, it caught up with me! I thought I felt funny Tues. when I came home, it wasn’t long before I felt lousy!! Sure enough I have a dosser of a cold. It has gone into bronchitis now and it is miserable! I am trying to work, while medicined up, but I can’t wait to get home and get doped up. NyQuill has become my best friend in bed! LOL That and a prescription med for coughing, well I am set for the night. Have to admit that the next day I am having a time trying to get my head together to go to work!  This is the 2nd week of it, hope it goes away soon, but not to hubby, I’m afraid that he will get it. Last year he caught my cold and it turned into broncitical pneumonia. He was a sick man.  I guess I’ll just keep on coughing and staying away from family, I don’t want them to get it!!!! Uck, Uck!!!

COMMING HOME LORD

September 12, 2007

I have been following a friend in blogland since last summer and she struck me as a strong Christian woman. I read this week that Amy has lost her battle with cancer, but has won the battle really by going home to her Lord. Her posts on her website were full of faith, the kind that we wonder: do I have that kind of faith? I really don’t know. She was diagnosed in July of 2006 and has fought a rough fight. She leaves behind a beautiful young boy and a loving husband.  It really made me think of how fragile life really is. We really don’t have any control of it. We or someone we love could be called home today or even tomorrow. Are we ready, have we said”I love you” to family today? Or are we going to be saying”I didn’t even have time to !” Don’t put off what could be a last time of talking or seeing that someone you love, you never know if it will be the last time.

Amy had posted on her site the bible passage from 11Corinthians 4:16-18. she lived by that and I think we should too. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day………

….For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;     While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are ETERNAL!

Amy’s site is: www.wilhoite.blogspot.com    read it , it will make you think.

THE 6 AM QUIETNESS

September 10, 2007

The sun is just peeking through, the fog is coming in,it is quiet in my little corner of the world. This is the best time of the day for me; I can start the day slowly drinking my coffee, sitting on the porch comuning with the Lord. It does my soul good to do this, because sure enough the day will get hextic and I will not remember to thank God for my many blessings. We had an answered prayer yesterday in that hubby was able to talk to his daughter finally after 6yrs of silence. He has been praying for this for all this time. He was questioning that his prayer was in vain. But our God knows our hearts and he answered this father’s plea. It was wonderful, God is so good!!  Now if I can figure out what blessing will come out of my fender bender last week ; I will  accept it!!! A young girl hit my NEW car at work. It didn’t do alot of damage to the car, just to ME: it hurt my feelings greatly!!!!!! I purposely park behind work to stay away from fender benders in the parking lot, but there are other  people who work there too. She was sooo upset not because she hit me, but because she had to tell her parents that she had tore up their car!!! Poor girl, I felt sorry for her.

Summer is slowly coming to an end, my favorite time of the year, the tourist are gone, the roads are quieter. The crabs are so good now the meat is so sweet, I ate a mess Sat. night in Crisfield. We walked down to the pier and ate an ice cream cone. Wow date night is still alive and well!! LOL  I hope it never ends.
