Love Makes The Heart Sing

Dennis and I surprised Mom today with flowers and candy. She lit up like a Christmas tree...... this is a too cute picture... She is still having her terrible headaches and sits with a heating pad a lot of the time. She got her Azalea and her balloon with a gift bag full of Ghirardelli Chocolate and Cream filled Truffles! She smiled and hugged us and laughed and touched her flowers for 30 minutes! It only takes a little love to give the heart a reason to sing!

Happy Valentines Day Mom....... You are so loved !

She Just Snuck In!

He was having a bite to eat with the sinner tax collector (I am sure there are other names for them now) He was being chastised by the Sad-u-See's and the Fair-U-Sees for doing so. In the middle of his dinner and visit there came a"Certain Ruler... and worshiped HIM....... and he cried out, my daughter is dead, come and touch her and she will live.
HE got up and headed to the home of the "Certain Ruler"to raise his daughter from the dead. When outside there was such a crowd, HE could go no where anymore without a crowd.
She was watching from afar. Too many people to get close to HIM or even get near HIM. She crouched down and headed toward HIM anyway.... Passing through the feet of those gathering and moving with HIM. She was tired and dirty and broke and still sick. If I can but touch the end of his robe, I will be healed. The throng growing and moving faster as the anticipation grew as to what HE would do next. She shoved and pushed and stayed low to the ground so she could just get to the bottom of his robe.

She touched it!

HE stopped, now she was fearful as she was unclean according to the Old Testament law. She did not move, she held her breath. HIS eyes searched the faces of the crowd..... Who Touched Me? HIS words rang out above the of the shouts of the people. Silly man said HIS disciples, there are people everywhere, how can we possible know which one touched you.
I felt virtue leave my body was HIS reply.......... Then HIS eyes met hers......

Mark 5:32-5:34
And HE looked round about to see her that done this thing, But the woman being fearful and trembling, knowing what was done in her (she was healed the instant she touched HIS garment) came and fell down before HIM, and told HIM all the truth. And HE said unto her Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole, go in peace and be whole of they plague.

She came quietly in beside HIM and in the midst of all the turmoil, she found her way to HIS garment. HE knew she was there, HE felt virtue leave HIS body.........She was healed because of one thing, her faith.

We do not always need to move and shout with the crowd. Sometimes we can just move in quietly with purpose in our hearts until we touch HIS garment. HE knows we are there....... HE knows......

Pray For People in Lone Grove

Please remember the people in Lone Grove Oklahoma today. They are saying 8 dead with possible more. Much damage and homes lost. We are thankful that by the time the storm got here it was moving south and east of us. Just remember these precious people that lost family..........

Stroms .....

We are fine... storm passed about 1 mile from the house....... I guess it was a pretty large storm.. At one point 1/2 mile wide on the ground............ I hate spring time storms........... We got out of the house and went to the University where my DH works......His office is 1/2 underground.......... Had to leave Moses and Zeke, the Love Bird and Schnauzer ....... I was NOT happy about that.....! Next time they go with us........Mom and Dad a bit shaken but they are home in their beds now............ I prayed as I left the house that not one thing on my 10 acres be harmed............ We will be able to see more in the morning light but things out here are fine.........

Thanks for the prayers girls...........HE hears!

Let The Food Begin..............

I am an emotional eater......(is that a word) I eat when: I am hungry (duh) tired, depressed, angry, sad, happy, fearful, envious , jealous you get the picture! What a fate in life that when I am fully awake, I am wanting to eat... What is that all about?

So last Wednesday I had a bad hair day. Now wait, read that again, I had A BAD HAIR DAY! A really bad hair day, not just your bad hair day but your BAD hair day! Are we on the same page yet?

I have been growing out my hair for 5 months now. Found this cute little hair style that I wanted so I have endured growing out my hair. You know how hard that is. FINALLY, long enough(about 7 inches on the top) and after some research found a gal that has high scours in being a stylist and not just a hair cutter. (is that proper English?)

Off I went, picture in hand, joyful and excited I sat in her chair. We chatted for almost 10 minutes about my hair and exactly what I wanted. (You see, I have a beautician license and have had for 30 years, I do not cut hair as I hate it but I have my license, I know how to cut hair!) So after a few minutes I was sure she understood and with the picture taped to her mirror scissors in hand she began. NOW, let me let you in on a little secret! Do you know why they turn you AWAY from their mirror? BECAUSE THEY DO NOT NOT WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND THEY DO NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW! Trust me... put your feet on the floor and REFUSE TO BE TURN BACKWARD!

Clip clip snip snip and she is finished! (did not know until about half way through that she was using a RAZOR! a razor...) I never let someone razor cut my hair.. She started with scissors! What changed her mind there!

Boy is she finished. I wanted to cry and throw a fit but being the person that I am, I paid that lady to butcher my hair and out the door I went. Now I am not an unreasonable person, very easy to get along with but there are just some lines that you do not cross when messing with my hair. I am a hair lady, some ladies are leg ladies or face ladies or clothes and bling ladies, I am a hair lady. If my hair is happy the family is happy, but if my hair is not happy, then LEAVE ME ALONE! Is that juvenile ? I hope not. We as women do not ask much in our lives....... soooooo to want happy hair is Ok.

Want to know what I did............ I came home and I ATE !!!!!!!!! Then Dennis got home from work and I ate, and then watching the TV I ate and cried. (ever tired to do that?)

I showed her, I gained two pounds back that I have been working so hard on and now with the short hair I look like a big bowling ball with a little bowling ball perched on my shoulders... (did I tell you it was short?) No, now listen, it is not short it is SHORT! Cannot get my round brush under it to even try to make it look like I have hair.........I measured it this morning, yes with a tape measure. It is 2 inches on the top!!!! 2 inches! What is that all about........Here is the picture I took her.......... Ready ?

Is that too cute or what? I was so looking forward to that... I was all smiles when I headed down there.. Finally, my new DO!

This is what mine looks like! I kid you NOT.......... (of course without the beautiful smile and the flawless skin and that shapely shoulder and skinny neck, high cheek bones and jaw line that I would crawl across the desert for.. ......My hair looks just like that!!!!!!!! Go Figure ! (let us not over look that plunging neckline) Mercy! Maybe she needs glasses or.........SHE NEEDS TO LEARN TO STYLE HAIR AND NOT JUST CUT!!!!!!!!!! YOU THINK? What about that hair style says 2" on top...... Duh! I just don't see that do you?

It will take another 5 months to grow out again.......... Then what?

Ok.... That is all I have to say about that! ahahhhah This is ment to be a fun post girls......... I am really ok with this........ Just thought I would give you a good laugh today!

Hahahhahah and it will grow! I need to get over it!

LightenUP and Play!

I was visiting Mama Bear , and she has posted a "Pay It Forward" Challenge.
This is a great way to bless others with a surprise in their mail--using your time, energy and love.
Here are the rules :
The first 3 bloggers to leave a comment on this post will receive a hand-made item from me.

Those 3 bloggers promise to post this challenge on their blog (meaning they too will ‘pay-it-forward’, creating a handmade gift for the first 3 bloggers that leave a comment on their blog!!) That's a lot of hand-made love being passed around! ; )The gift can be any price range--though I'm thinking that keeping it small will be sufficient--and you have 365 days to make/ship your gift!!
So, the person receiving this will be definitely surprised when a surprise shows up unexpectedly in their mailbox! As you can see, if everyone cooperates and "pays it forward" this spreading of love could go on for a very long time. If you want to participate, just leave a comment telling me so and then repost this on your blog so that you can pay it forward to 3 others, and so on, and so on, and so on.......

You can still leave a comment here even if you do not want to participate....... Just tell me if you do...... It is that easy!

I love doing this and had such a great time with it last year................... Sooooooooo Pay it Forward girls.....................
