Much sunshine, blue sky dotted with white heavy looking clouds.  Mid 60's are forcast for today and the weekend is looking great.  

.

Today is the last day of the month, I will be working on changing out the billboard and making new threads to start using tomorrow.  I will be in and out today but I'll try not to trip you up.

.

Holly...and...Kaya........There is a special bond between all the children of God.  We are all siblings of the greatest Father of all time. Jesus told us to "love one another" just as He loves us. When you yield your all to the Holy Spirit, He fills you with that love for one another.  It's a wonderful feeling, isn't it?  Sometimes the strength of God's love is so over-whelming.  Where do we go from here?  

.

We are told in 2 Timothy 2:15 and 16 to......."Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness."  Start with the childrens stories if necessary and start your spiritual growth and education.  The Holy Spirit will enlighten you and teach you as you go.  Do not try to compare yourself with each other, you are all at different ages according to your spiritual birth and the amount of time you spend with the Lord.  As you read His Word, listen to what He is telling you.  

.

May the Lord guide us in all our thoughts, words, and deeds and continue to keep us safe from all harm.

so true for many of you.It is love and it is God.Thanks for who you are in my life,so important

Hello again.My last break of the day,then I must finish up and go home.I have been in deep thought today about many things,and I am at peace,finally,when I reason that Almighty is working things out,even though this world is in chaos.If we are together as a family because we belong to HIM,we are strong,right.Pray for each other,and make people feel like it is safe to come to you if they need to talk.Thank you to Janette and Holly and others who do that for me,and for my friend who you are there for,and as a result you were able to help her as she is struggling. She found God.I found Him,but I still need to work out a few things.I am here for you all,I can pray,talk listen,what ever you need.I may not be able to solve your problems,but I can help you as you work it out,and ask God to help,and just let you know that you are not alone,ok.IT will be ok.

Royal blue sky, no clouds, bright sunshine and cold.  Up slightly from 36 and headed toward a cool 54 for the afternon.  Tomorrow the 60's and mid 70's on the weekend. Monday night we are going to visit the 30's again which will be okay with me.  Tuesday will be uncomfortably cool for Mardi Gras.  Maybe if it's cold there will be less beer drinking and less drunks on the road when it's all over.  It would be nice if everyone stayed off the steets and watched the parades from home on the TV.  I feel a little guilty having said that, those carnival people with all the rides and food venders will not make enough to keep them ahead until the next scheduled booking.  I'm really sorry for them.  

.

Nance.......what a great pic of you and your mom.  If you don't mind, I'm going to add it to our photo album.  It's a keeper. You have her pretty smile.

.

Carla......rearranging???  Are you doing your spring cleaning already?  Oh how I miss being able to do all of that.  I always loved opening all the windows and doors and digging in from top to bottom.  You should be drying out again from the last rains.  Only 21 more days until official Spring arrives.  Hope it's pretty enough to sit outdoors and enjoy it without having to wait another month for winter to disappear.

.

Michael.......only 10 degrees?  Brrrrrr.  And I thought we were cold.  I can remember growing up in Arkansas that the Robins were plentiful all spring and summer.  They must go further south than here in the winter because we sure don't see them.  I guess we are luck to see them at all as they are passing through on their journey back north.  At least you got a little head start with the apple trees.  It won't be much longer now and you can work in the green house and then start preparing the ground for your garden this year. In just  6 more days we will go on daylight savings time so Luc should be able to put in some time after school to help you.  The days are already getting a little longer, that will boost the daylight up another notch.

.

Kaya.......The Clarke family must feel exhausted and greatly relieved now that the memorial service and all the big to-do is behind them.  Now they can grieve in private and try to put their lives back in order and fill this emptyness with love and comfort from the Lord.  Prayers for the mending of their broken hearts.

.

Holly.......I really enjoyed reading your post on the Today's Scripture thread.  Somebody spent a lot of time putting all of those scriptures in order that way.  That was no small task.  Hope all is well with you and yours.  There is another storm, Titan, that is expected to dump some more of that white stuff on you next week.  Make sure you are prepared to sit it out if it is big enough to keep you confined indoors. Always better safe than sorry.

.

Justice......a very cheerful hello to you also.  You have been missed.  Hope that this is a sign that you are getting better and regaining some of your strength back.  You remain in my thoughts and prayers.  Hope to see more of you as you continue to improve.

.

May God keep us all safe and guide us in all our ways.

We are down to about 10 this morning. Suppose to warm up some Saturday in the 40s.
Jeanette I know the Robins fly south in winter and return in spring. They raise their young hear. So we see them a lot.
I did get to prune the apple trees and clean up some.

Spring fever I have. lol

Nance glad you your mom got to visit.

Wow, it's back to the heater again for a couple of days.  Low this morning in the low, low 40's, going to be low 30's tomorrow morning.  Just have to shiver until the weekend though, temps will be back in the 70's again by Saturday.

.

Kaya.....That purple wisteria is so beautiful, there used to be a vine that choked and killed a tree in our back yard that was almost that large.  We had a devil of a time killing that plant, thought we would never get rid of it.  I couldn't mow the grass around it for all the big bumble bees.  Anything that draws bees has to go.  I can always admire the beauty in somebody elses yard.

.

Linda.......I'm so sorry that you had trouble yet again with your posting here.  You will have to make a point of copying your post before you click the button.  Then if it disappears, just copy it back and click again.  That might save you oodles of time and be a lot less frustrating for you.  If we don't see you tomorrow (Thursday) then I'll look for you soon after the 1st of the month.  We will all be glad to get this month behind us.

.

May the Lord keep us all safe from harm and continue to guide us in all that we do and say.

So annoyed! Second time within the week,I've written a post to the group only to have it vanish into thin air when I click the submit button. So for the 2nd time within the week I'm having to redo a post offer again.

Didn't think I would make it to the library today. Had day off,but wanted to take care of some errands I'd been putting off due to the extremely bad weather we've been getting. Supposed to get snow later this evening. They say we're not supposed to get much,just a light dusting,but you never know. Temps only supposed to get into the teen's rest of week with possibility of below 0 wind chills. Thankfully only 3 days left of February. Hopefully March will bring warmer weather. Don't know when I'll be able to visit again. Wishing everyone a blessed good evening.

Holly......We both must have been composing at the same time, your post wasn't there when I started mine.  LOL. That was so sad and is repeated daily in so many homes today.  Our children are missing out on what a family life is all abut.  My Poppa was seldom home to eat dinner with us, he was always working on some machine and had to get it running before he could leave.  Much of the time I went to bed before he came in and momma would sit up with him while he ate.  At least they had some "alone" time together.  I did get to eat breakfast with them and that was always a special treat.  It's a real shame that progress in America has replaced the family unit that started it all. It might have been good living in the 1800's and not having everything so easy.  I hope everyone here that reads this will make an extra effort to spend more quality family time together.

Cloudy and humid down south this morning.  The sun popped out for a couple of hours yesterday, hoping it will again today.

.

Nance.......Hang in there, it's only 23 more days til the official first day of Spring.  We are all anxiously watching and waiting for it's arrival.  Just hoping and praying that it isn't late.  Would be elated if it got an earlier flight. LOL. We will all be glad to get this winter season behind us.  

.

It's "show-off" time.......I finally got a photo of my latest finished baby afghan and wanted to share it with you.  It has all the baby colors for the expectant parents that don't know what is coming........pastel blue, pink, mint green, sunny yellow and white.  

 photo babyafghanmultisoftee_zps6fe8b4b5.jpg

It is all boxed up and sitting on the front porch waiting for the postman to start it on it's long journey to it's new home. (Jasmine).  Pray that she likes it.  I am about 2/3 finished with another one just like it......not counting the fringe.  That is about a 2 day project, one for cutting and one for putting it on.  Hopefully this one will be finished by next week.  I have some other yarn that I'm jumping up and down to see how it's going to work up.  I hope it doesn't disappoint me.

May the Lord guide us in all our ways and continue to keep us safe from harm.

SON: "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"
DAD: "Yeah sure, what is it?"
SON: "Daddy, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?"
SON: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "If you must know, I make $100 an hour."
SON: "Oh! (With his head down).
SON: "Daddy, may I please borrow $50?"
The father was furious.
DAD: "If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior."

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?
After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think:
Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $ 50 and he really didn't ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door.

DAD: "Are you asleep, son?"

SON: "No daddy, I'm awake".
DAD: "I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier. It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $50 you asked for."

The little boy sat straight up, smiling.
SON: "Oh, thank you daddy!"
Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

DAD: "Why do you want more money if you already have some?"

SON: "Because I didn't have enough, but now I do.

"Daddy, I have $100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness. It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $100 worth of your time with someone you love? If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family and friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.

Some things are more important.

Now, how is this for a happy and frisky start of a new week?

They look a little bewildered to me.  LOL.  That is sort of the way I feel in regards to the weather.  One day says rain and then when the day comes it says no rain.  This is one of those "What you see is what you get" seasons.

.

Michael........Thank the Lord that the bad weather missed you. Tennessee was not so fortunate.  Prayers were answered again.  The return of the Robins is certainly good news.  We don't see many down here but when we do, they are always at the city park just up the street from us or on the high school field.  Haven't seen them anywhere else in this town. They don't stay around very long either.  Have no idea where they go from here.

.

Holly.......I will offer prayers for William Clarke's family. They sure waited a long time for the Memorial Service.  It's been 22 days now.  I'm sorry to see you so unhappy and homesick.  You have been our cheerful note through all of this winter and heaps and piles of snow.  I pray that Spring will lighten your heart and chase away your blues and make you happy again.  

.

Carla......Tired is very understandable with the health issues alone, even if you did nothing but sit all day long.  Packing?? Are you planning on making another move?  Maybe to a place with less flooding when it rains?  I do hope that you are not just a pack-rat like me.  I could pack up half of what we have and put it in a warehouse and forget all about it.  This is a good place to stop for a rest and a coffee break, we love it when you are here.

.

May the Lord keep us all safe and guide us in all our thoughts, words and deeds.

Moving some things, packing some things, cleaning out some things has really been getting to the COPD/Emphysema, bad breathing days, hurting in upper back/shoulder area.. That combined with the rain making the joints hurt and does not help breathing eaither...

I will try to stop in later

No sunshine today, just wet everywhere.  I bet church attendance is low this morning, not because it's raining but because of street flooding.  The water has gone down now on our street but earlier it would have taken a boat to cross the road.  Either that or be wet up to the fanny.  Just a good day to stay in and read, study, crochet, or bake. Watch TV or napping doesn't sound too bad either.

&

Linda......our minds must have been in the same channel yesterday, I mentioned not hearing from you and you appeared the same day.  The weather in your area has not been kind this winter, I fully understand why you don't get out to the library in all that mess and extreme cold.  Hang in there, it's going to get cold again.  It's only 23 or 24 more days until Spring.....lets just hope Old Man Winter knows this and leaves on time.  He had worn out his welcome for this year.

&

Holly...........What gorgeous roses, I would like to see the bush thay came off of.  The weather channel indicated that your might be getting another little snow dusting, I think on Wednesday, but not sure about when.  I know that Wednesday night we are supposed to drop back into the lower 30's but hopefully for only the one night.  This is supposed to be a quick bounce for us right back up to more tolerable temps by or before the weekend.  The thaw is already causing some flooding up north, it will get worse and move south over the spring months.  The west is in an extreme drought and the feds will not give them any water this year.  Between the crops that are lost to drought and the crops that will be lost to flooding, the food costs are going to rise again.  Time to increase the pantry and stock up some more.

&

May the Lord watch over us and keep us safe from harm and continue to provide for the needs of His children.  Be sure to count and give thanks for all of your blessings.

So mad! I finally get to visit the group and post an update and it disappears. So having to post all over again. Sorry for my long absence. Can't remember the last time I even visited the group. Between all the snow we've been getting and the polar vortex,haven't been able to get to the library much. Seems on my days off the weather is always lousy in some way.

Jeanette-thanks for the e-cards you have sent. They have really encouraged me and lifted my spirit.

Carla-glad to see you're back. Sorry about your internet and satellite problems. They claim technology is supposed to make life better,but sometimes you have to wonder.

Nance-your granddaughter Gracie is beautiful. You must be very proud of her.

Michael-sorry you haven't been feeling well. I know how it is to have a cough that hangs on and refuses to go away. Sounds like you're going through a rough winter as well. I'm sure your thankful for the bountiful harvest the Lord blessed you with last fall. Least you don't have to worry about buying groceries in the cold.

Lord willing and weather permitting,hope to visit again this tuesday.

After a cool start in the low to mid 40's, we are once again expecting to reach 70 degrees today.  This is not to last though.  By Wednesday or Thursday of next week we are forcasts back into the lower 30's again.  Hopefully it won't last more than a couple of days.  Michael and Holly might even see another little snowfall about that same time.  It's been a long time since we have heard from Linda, Florika, and Carol.  Hope they are weathering the cold well and staying healthy through it all.  Maybe we will hear from them again soon.

*

Mardi Gras activities, or as they call it, the Carnival Season, gets underway today.  Some of the Krewes will have their parades today, some tomorrow and through Fat Tuesday, which is Tuesday, March 4.  New Orleans may have started their season las weekend.  Theirs usually runs longer than ours.

*

Holly, I hope that you and William have a most blessed day together, it must be very hard to only get one day off each week.

Justice, hope that you are feeling better today and will continue to improve each day.  We miss hearing from you also.

 photo FEELBETTERSOON_zps366af938.jpg   Justice, so glad you are feeling better today than yesterday but will not be happy until you are back to your old self again, happy and healthy.  I'm saying prayers for you everyday.  Please eat what is good for you, you need lots of protein, if you don't want meat, then eat eggs, milk, peanutbutter, and beans. Some nuts are healthier for you than others, you should eat Almonds, Walnuts, Peanuts and Cashews.  All other nuts do not have the same nutrition as these 4.  A lot of custards and puddings would be good for you also, and milk shakes. Need to fatten you up so that little one can develop properly.  Thanks for coming in today, hope to see you again over the weekend.  Take care and God bless.

Another fantastic morning, lots of blue sky and sunshine but today's high in the low 70's.  We had a little cool front pass through last night that brought some strong thunderstorms and dropped our temps just a little.  The stronger and more severe weather stayed to the north of us, praise God.  

*

Carla.......I know you are getting a dose of the same that we had, it doesn't last too long and then all will be refreshed and nice again.  I cannot imagine, nor do I care to find out, what it would be like living with 25 cats.  That would be a bit much to take care of.  I wouldn't want to take care of 25 of anything, not even horses and I dearly love them.  Shucks, I even have trouble taking care of 25 pieces to a dish set.  LOL  

*

Michael........Got a quick glimpse of your area shaded in green on the weather map as I was passing through the den this morning.  Sure hope you don't have any severe weather from this front that passed through the midsection of the country.  Some place in Tenn. had a few trees down, hoping that was just high winds and not a twister.  I'll try to watch the weather channel in a little bit and catch up on what is happening.

*

Kaya.......We are in total agreement, I have counted those little fingers and toes and done all of that with my babies and can truthfully say I know love.  It's a different kind of love that the one we feel for our spouse, and different yet from that for our parents and other family members.  But I know, deep down inside, that it cannot compare to the love that God has for us.  If only we could feel the depth of love that He has for us.  That is love beyond compare.  One of these days, we will know how to love to that capacity also.

*

Holly........Thanks for the good wishes for the weekend.  I hope that you will have a blessed one as well and can enjoy another breakfast outing with your sweety like last week.  

*

May the Lord watch over all of us and keep us safe from harm and comfort those in need with His many blessings.

Good morning,

Quick hello, we have rain and that means internet is fading in and out.

:
the little kitty is doing great, she is eating much better.

:
J'net no worries on "an accident" both of my fellas have been fixed years ago: Hannibal my 25 pound fella is almost 13, Squirt, a feral cat that adopted us is now almost 9.

:
Stray cats are my heart to be honest, they are the throw aways and it breaks my heart...
I once for over 2 years fed a feral cat colony of about 25, never missed a day, managed to get 19 of them fixed, then 2 of the nicest people took over the care of the colony for me.

hugs and hello's for everyone

Beautiful sunshine today with some clouds moving around. It is also very humid but I'll take warm and humid over cold and freezing any old day.

Nance.......Gracie is really growing, easy to see even in pictures.  She looks so alert and taking in everything around her.  She is going to be a smart little girl.  Hope you will put this one in the photo album.

*

Carla.......Glad to see you back and to know that your absence wasn't due to poor internet or you feeling bad.  Now, what are we going to do about you and stray cats?  LOL.  As soon as you get that little kitty on the road to good health, I think I would place an ad to find her a good home.  It's not worth keeping your boys upset all the time and taking the risk of an accident happening.  I hope that her recovery will happen soon to end her suffering.

*

Holly.........Those are nice names for the new baby, I am particularly fond of the name Emily and all of it's various spellings. (Emilee......Emaleigh, which is like 2 names in one, Ema and Leigh or even Emaleah).  Just call me weird.  LOL. I also wanted to tell you that I like your graphic, that is a BUNCH of butterflys.  Here is a link to the Native American interpretation of the butterfly......it's the young Indian girls at a powwow doing the Fancy Shawl Dance.  Notice that they are always on their toes, heels are not supposed to touch the ground

My nurse came yesterday and gave me the shock of the year.  I had gained 6 pounds through Christmas and up to my birthday.  I don't know what has happened since my birthday but I have eaten my way up another 6 pounds now. I plan to enjoy myself the rest of this week and next week I'm going on a diet and lose 15 pounds or die trying.  It's so easy to snack while using the computer......might have to spend more time crocheting instead of visiting.  If both hands are kept busy they can't feed my face.

May the Lord guide us in all our ways and keep us safe from all harm.

Sorry for being absent the last couple of days... We found a very young cat under our steps, maybe 2 months old, starving to death. All the bones in her little body are poking out.

:

Jason(my oldest son) and I have been doing all we can to get her going.. she would not even drink water, finally last night got her to eat some soft cat food and she kept it down... Fingers crossed and lots of praying for her...

:

She is the sweetest little baby, loves on you even though she is so weak.. She is solid black with a small white stripe under her chin...

:

Bruce(my husband) spotted another one, so now we have to try to get that one and see what is going on, apparently the cat I was feeding left me some presents....

:

My 2 old crabby male cats are not happy with this new addition, they are very territorial, we are having to keep her confined to a bedroom because of them.

:

Now, how is everyone? I will have to take a few minutes later and catch up on everything

hugs

It's another peek-a-boo day between the sun and the clouds but it's pushing hard toward 76 this afternoon.  Holly, I'm so sorry that you cannot enjoy this warm spell with us.  We are due to drop back down into the 40's tomorrow night and out daytime temps will be back into the 60's again.  Still we cannot complain, it's way too early for the 70's to stay in place.

Michael.......I'm thrilled that you are about over your winter sickness and that your cough is getting better.  You must be ready to kick up your heels about now.

*

Holly........I loved your contribution to the Today's Scripture thread this morning.  You're very talented.  Maybe you girls should get together and start a new thread with all of your spiritual poems and writings.  

*

May the Lord guide us in all our ways this day and keep us all safe from harm.

Left over cloudiness from yesterday with the sun playing hide and seek but no rain and pushing toward 76 for this afternoon.

Justice......You are in a good place being with friends.  I'm very happy to hear about your plans with Jesse and wish you both happiness together for all your days.  I am also elated that I found the money......I couldn't believe that she took it, that's why I was looking so hard, to keep the devil from falsely accusing her in my mind.  Instead, it backfired on the devil, it has strengthened my trust in our worker.  I also want to remind you that according to the scriptures, when we are all in the kingdom, there will be no more pain, no sickness, no tears.  It will be a joyous place for all eternity.

*

Revelation 21:4  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

*

What a wonderful inheritance we all have to look forward to.  May God bless each of us this day according to our individual needs and continue to keep us all safe in His loving and merciful care.

Lows in the 50's this morning and pushing to a high in the 70's once again.  We are extremely overcast and it looks like rain.......just have to wait and see.

*

Michael......I'm so glad that you are warming up a bit, and even more elated that you are starting to feel better.  I think the sickness is the biggest drawback for all of us not liking winter.  That plus the fact that it seems so long with more darkness then light each day to limit our activities and keep us indoors.  By the time Spring arrives, we have all had our fill of "cabin fever" and are ready to get outdoors and flap our wings once again.  

*

Holly.........I just now realized that we both posted a graphic with a rainbow in it.  They say "great minds think alike", lol. I hope that you will also be enjoying the warmer weather real soon.  This has been a harder winter on the northern states than usual.  When all of that snow melts, it's all going to come this way and flood all up and down the Mississippi River.  Not looking forward to that.  It always floods our swamps also and gaters roam into the cities where they don't belong.  

*

Carla........don't feel alone, it hurts my eyes also and when it's in the small print, I copy and then paste it to a blank email and enlarge it so I can read it.  Either that or just skip over it and never know what it says.  It's a real pain where a pill can't reach at times.  Poppa always said "where there is a will, there is a way."  So I go looking for a way to get things to my satisfaction in spite of Care2 and their inefficient techs or engineers.

*

The missing money was found after a good many hours spent going through stacks and piles of papers and junk all over my desk and the stand next to my desk.  Then after I went through all of it, throwing away and ripping up what was no longer important to me, I went so far as to get another empty waste basket and go through each of my trash papers again to be sure I hadn't torn it up in my haste to find it.  It is so strange in here this morning, I can actually see my printer and the router and modem got dusted for the first time in eons.  There is still plenty more I could do but it will have to wait for another day.  That took away from my study and my crochet time.  I cannot begin to tell you how relieved I was just to know that my hired help didn't take it and that I can still trust her.  That old devil tried his best to destroy my faith but I kept at it until I proved him wrong.  I guess it's only natural for those negative thoughts to creep in but it doesn't mean we have to give in and accept them without fact.  She is a good person and a good worker 80% of the time and worthy of the benefit of the doubt.

*

Kaya.......like Carla, I have seen nothing that would cause me to feel anger toward you or anyone else in the group.  So far as I know, all is well in group.  It concerns me that your focus is on physical and/or emotional pain with us.  Are you being physically or emotionally abused?  This is not something that is easily admitted to, I understand that, and I will be praying for you.  If you need someone to talk to, you know how to reach me privately.  I will be keeping you in prayer.

*

May the Lord keep all of us safe in His loving and protective care and guide us in our daily ways.

Clever way that you do yours so that it posts spaced.....

The missing money....like you the old devil crept in my thoughts of your cleaning girl, praying that is not the case and that you find it... If not I pray you find a way to deal with what to do...

Can't believe this beautiful weather........wishing I could share it with all of you.  We are forecast for 71 today, 50's tonight.

.

Holly.........What a nice way to start off a workday.  Easy, unrushed, and with loved ones.  Hope you have a great and blessed day.

.

Kaya.......I never thought about it in that way before, but that is a good example of love.  Our heavenly Father also showed great love and mercy for His Son, and didn't leave Him on the Cross.  He was actually on the Cross for just a few short hours, but they were torcherous ones and He suffered greatly so that we wouldn't have to.  That is love.  That is obedience.  

.

Carla........That is the one flaw that Care2 hasn't fixed yet.  I put a period (.) in the space between paragraphs and then go back and change the font color to white so that they don't show.  I will leave the first one visible on this post and only hide the rest of them.  I need to go on a diet also, I put on 7 pounds since just before Christmas.  This past week the doctor changed the dosage on my Synthroid medication, maybe that will help me to drop a few of them again.  When that old throid gets out of whack its next to impossible to lose a single pound.  

.

I am in a tizzy this morning.  Ray went to the bank and drew out my monthly spending money for me.  This morning I can't find it.  I have searched all around my desk where I remember having it last but there is no sign of it.  Guess this room will get a good cleaning this afternoon until it's found. The only other person that is ever in here is the girl that cleans for us and I don't like thinking what so easily comes to mind.  I have to prove that old devil wrong in my mind. This room needs some dedicated attention paid to it anyway.  Thank you Lord for giving me the motivation to do it.

.

May the Lord bless each of us according to our needs and guide us in all our thoughts, words and deeds.

Sorry about no post yesterday, came by, thought I posted, old age is creeping up on me ..

How is everyone this beautiful day?

J'net, I have had king cakes from that bakery, they are so yummy....After this birthday cake of Jason's is gone, we are all going on a diet, we like sweets and carbs way too much.....

Looking forward to seeing your finished project.... I am trying something new, I am loom-knitting, so far I have made one small hat(baby size), now working on an adult size....I am thinking of ordering some how-to books on it and trying some other things...

I have been wanting to make some quilts... I have never quilted on a sewing machine, we always used frames over chairs... first time trying it by myself...When I get brave enough that is.....

Coffee time is calling me, back later I hope

Michael,Nance,Justice,Holly,Kaya,Gabra and who else I may not have mentioned, I really enjoy your pictures and posts

What a beautiful morning it is.......lows in the 40's and upper 60's for today.  Lots of blue sky and sunshine and it feels so warm on my skin through the kitchen window.  Makes me want to go outside and sit in the yard for a while.  If it weren't for the humidity, I probably would.  Tonights low in the 50's and 71 forcast for tomorrow.  Monday through Friday expected to be in the mid to upper 70's.  Texas is forcast for 80 already.  Hang in there all of you northern and eastern folks, winter is getting some strong competition in the South.  Hopefully it will spread your way.

.

I ordered some new yarn to crochet with and got a package of it in yesterday.  Immediately a new baby afaghan was in the making.  This morning another package arrived with the last of the order which came from a different company.  I can hardly to finish what I just started and get this new one in the making.  The one I started yesterday is going together so pretty and is 5 different colors all blending together.  I'll get Teresa to take pictures as I finish them and I'll show them off to everyone.  

.

Hope that all of you have a productive and safe weekend. May the Lord continue to watch over us and provide for the many needs of His children.

It's a beautiful Valentines down South, low this morning around 40ish and working it's way up to the 60's.  

.

Michael, I pray every bit of your snow melts off today so the next round won't cause you so much trouble.  It would be wonderful if the next round missed you completely but from the look of things on the weather channel, I think you are definitely going to get it.  Today's warming should at least ease the weight on the trees and make them less of a threat to your utilities.  For today, we are thanking God for answered prayers.

.

Carla.......You received the gift that keeps on giving, year after year the love keep growing.  Are you planning a party to celebrate this special day and his birthday?  Anytime you want a king cake, just let me know.  The place that makes them also ships them out so I'll be happy to call and order one for you.  You might be able to find about them online, it's Meche's Donuts.  They should have all their flavors listed there also.

.

Nance........love your graphic, wish I could run and play in the snow again.  The Peanuts Gang seem to be having such fun.  I know you are used to coping with the long winter snows, but I don't know how you do it.  There comes a time when you must feel that enough is enough.  LOL.

.

In case you didn't notice, we have a new member this morning.  He comes to us from Portugal and is going by the name Life Spirit.  Please help me to give him a very warm welcome to the group.

Good afternoon,

So thrilled that I am able to stop back in, twice in one day, very happy with Care2 at the moment....

Yep I am a older (more ways than one) member.... I had lots of trouble with Care2, when it was having glitchy problems..

I sure have missed this group and so happy I am able to get back in here...

J'net, I wanted one of those king cakes so bad, passed it by.. tomorrow is my oldest son's birthday (Jason) and I am making him a cake in the morning, did not need that along with a king cake...

Like you I love my sweets, they like me also, they sure keep hanging around

Michael, glad to hear you are feeling better, did you get any more snow?

I see in Cullman,Alabama, which is north of my sister they got 10 inches, this has been a cold winter for us here in the south...

Not sure what all this is about babies, someone catch me up please...

Thank you for the hellos Kaya and Holly........

J'net, always here for you, how is Ray and Teresa?

hugs for all

Kaya.......What wonderful news that you found and hired the right person for the job vacancy.  That must be a heavy load lifted off of you.

.

Carla is one of our old members that left for a while and is now back again.  In fact, she was a co-host with me back when Care2 was working good more often than not.  I have really missed her and her help here.

.

I must agree with you, I have seen a picture of Holly and she is very pretty.  She doesn't agree with me though.  

.

I have just answered one of Gabra's posts, the other one will take me a good while to look up all the references.  This one was easy to answer, it's nowhere in the Bible, just a matter of history.  Thanks for sharing with us her feelings toward spiritual matters.  I hope and pray that she will come to desire a relationship with her own Creator soon.

Above freezing this moring, high 57 this afternoon, and 60's for the weekend.  Monday thru Wednesday to be in the low to mid 70's.  

.

Michael.......We had snow one year in NC that measured 17" on our glass sliding doors but the official snowfall was only 8 inches.  Guess it just blew off the roof and swirled up against the doors in our back patio area.  I really loved those big snows.  They are so beautiful, it's a shame they are so hazardous at the same time.  Kind of like Satan, beautiful but treacherous.  I'm praying all day that the snow will stop for you and that your power doesn't fail.  Hope you have enough food and firewood to last you til it's over.

.

Holly.......Gabra is a group member, Rahab unjoined the group a month or so ago.  She never sent me any kind of a message as to why, hope I didn't offend her in any way.  I do think that Jasmine needs to be under a doctor's care.  If I had not been established with a doctor, I would have died in childbirth.  Both of my children had to be delivered by C-section.  You never know what might go wrong and sometimes just a few minutes is all you have to get the necessary help. I'll pray for her to have a healthy baby and easy delivery. Also hope that you are prepared with enough food on hand to last you through this snow storm coming.  It's really getting serious all over the country now.

.

Carla.......So glad that you were able to broadcast from your little island in the lake.  You should know by now that those Satellites use the same techs as Care2......they never work at 100%.  There will always be a kink in the lines somewhere.  We got a good amount of rain but we are on a downhill slope so water does't accumulate except in the street.  Then it might take 30 minutes to an hour to drain off.  In the summer kids like to go swim in the street after one of those big soakers.  You are a softy like me, I can't stand to see anything or anybody go hungry.  This time, just toss the food out in the yard so kitty doesn't feel too welcome or comfortable coming up on your porch.  Also, don't go out and be a dinner companion to this one.  Just feed it like you would the birds, put out the food and then go about your business in the house.  Kitty will be appreciative.

.

Ray went to pick up a script for me this morning at Walmart and also went by and picked up a Mardi Gras King Cake for us.  It is half chocolate and half bavarian cream.....so good.  I think I'm about to go have another slice and call it lunch. Guess I should at least eat some soup or something and then eat the other for dessert.  Just more pounds to have to work off but I have no self control with sweets.

.

May the Lord keep all of us safe and provide for the needs of each of us according to our individual needs.

Holly(beautiful baby),Nance,Kaya,Gabra,Justice,hello to all of you, looking forward to getting to know each of you, love the pictures and posts I have been looking at.

J'net, how are you my friend? Did you get much of that rain? My yard is a lake.... this area is low and the ground does not hold water very well.. Take a guess what I have... another stray kitty has shown up, it is totally feral and will not come close at all, so maybe I will not have a repeat of the last kitty that decided to bite the hand(leg) that fed him...I can not turn away something that is hungry...

Michael are you feeling any better?

Well let me go return some cards that was sent

We dropped to just under freezing last night but I don't think there was enough wet left on the streets to cause any difficulty to our part of the state.  All of the nasty stuff stayed to the north of us.  They are having a pretty rough time but with the warming temps this afternoon it should get better.  

.

Kaya........I hope you can find a suitable person to work with. It sure isn't pleasant when you have a rotten egg in the bunch.

.

Carla.......All of the rains should be moving out of your area by now, and things should start to dry out for you again.  In a couple of days we should be back into the high 60's again and we are predicted to have 70's on Monday.  

.

Justice........Glad to hear that you are at least taking some suppliments.  Have you been able to come up with a due date yet?  Or at least the month?  That is a very pretty graphic of the blue mountains you shared with us.  

.

Holly.......I don't know whose sweet baby that is but I'll take a half a dozen if they are all that happy.  That is so precious, happy and contented.  Every mother should have babies like that one.  Did Jasmine ever find out if she is having a boy or a girl?  March is only a couple of weeks away, it won't be long now til she delivers.  Good luck on getting your health coverage, that is so important.

Something cute to make you laugh....only a joke but really cute.A baby was born laughing instead of crying.Mystified,the doctor treid to figure it out.He noticed something was in the baby's hands.When he opened the tiny hands to see what it was,it was 3 abortion pills.The baby turned to the doctor,and said,"No weapon against me will prosper!" 

Photo: A MUST READ

A baby was born in hospital
laughing instead of crying, the
more the nurses beat him, the
more he laughed so hard,
suddenly the doctor noticed he
had something in his hands, so
he pulled the tiny hands apart
and
discovered he was holding 3
abortion pills.
The baby then turned his head
looking at his
mother, laughed again and said
"NO WEAPON FASHIONED AGAINST
ME SHALL PROSPER!"
Comment ~AMEN~ if you believe
no weapon fashioned against
you this Month shall
prosper.

Rain most of the afternoon yesterday, lasted all night, has stopped for now but more on the way with possible thunder storms.  Todays high 39.  The weekend is looking good though, might make it back into the low 70's.

.

Michael........I think all of our rain is what is coming to you in the form of that other nasty stuff.  I'm going to be praying hard that your power survives this storm with you.  With all of the school closures this winter, the kids will be late getting out for summer vacation trying to get in all the make-up days.  Speaking of kids.......no, you had not told me when the new baby was due, but I did see Carson holding the sign that it was a "brother".  That was so cute.  This is good that they will not have to go out and buy everything they already have in pink.  LOL.  They are just about all fixed up for this little new comer.  There might be just a few things that they would want him to have that are just his and not used or hand-me-downs.......like his own little spoon.  I really did enjoy your devotional this morning.  Unless a person has been born again, they will never understand the difference between joy and happiness.  Thank God we have had that wonderful life changing experience for ourselves.

.

Holly........Yes.  That is a pretty baby.  Those beautiful eyes appear to see right through you.  I've heard it said many times that there is only one beautiful baby in the world and every mother has one.  Well, in my old age I have found that is not true.  Every "grandmother" has one or three or five or whatever.  That's why we all sit around bragging on the little blessings.  I think we appreciate them more than the parents do because we have the easy job of just loving and spoiling them, not so much in their training or raising them.  I also enjoyed the song this morning, I can remember when they used to play it on the radio.  I'm not so sure about that train, but then again I'm also not very sure about that Thunderbird that the American Indians talk about either.

.

Kaya.......Just think how happy you are making people by giving the jobs they need.  I pray that the Lord will guide you in all of your interviews to place these people in the best positions to serve mankind and God.  

.

Justice........Hope you are feeling well and able to cope with your extreme winter conditions.  How is your anemia coming along?  Hope that you have been able to increase your red cells and gotten stronger since you last told us about it.  We want that baby to develop as strong as possible.  Have you gotten a due-date yet?

.

Nance.......Carla......Florika.......Carol.......and all the rest of you who are missing in action, we want to hear from you also.

May the Lord bless each of us according to our individual needs and keep us all warm and safe in His loving care.

This is the kind of day we woke up to this morning, 58 and scattered showers.  This is also our high for the day and it will be hit and miss with the umbrellas.  

.

Holly........glad you stopped in for a quick hello, sorry you couldn't stay longer.  

.

Looks like everybody is sleeping in today and hopefully just off to a slow start.  Monday's are usually like that.  

.

May the Lord keep us all safe and guide us in all our ways.

Oh what a beautiful day we have, blue sky, little soft puffy clouds roaming around, bright warm sunshine and wishing we could share it with every one of you. 

.

Michael........it looks like you are maybe getting another dusting today or maybe tomorrow.  I'll try hard to send this nice warm wave up in your direction.  That is a real shame about Savannah, Georgia and the fire.  Thank you Lord that I don't live there with my poor breathing condition.  I'm sure there are some there in my condition so we need to pray for them.

.

Holly........How wonderful that you and William are at least able to have a discussion about the Lord without having to force it on him.  That would only push him further away.  Our prayers are not going to be returned void and we are praying for all of your family.  Do you only get one day a week off?  Six days is a long work week.

.

Carla........Glad you got a lot done yesterday and able to be here today.  Like you, I'm usually awake 4 or 5 times during the night and to see a 3 at the beginning of the digital numbers is not unusual.  If I were to get up, it would be a major chore.   I try not to drink anything too close to bed time and when I wake up it's just to reposition myself and pull up the covers around me and go right back to sleep.  If I have to get up it wakes the whole household.  Somebody get the jello while I turn on the TV, it's time to p-a-r-t-y!!!!! With nights like this, an hours nap in the afternoon is not unnatural and always helps.  Happy reading on the other threads, you have a lot to catch up on.  That's what happens when you are gone so long.  So glad to have you back though.

.

May the Lord continue to watch over us all, keeping us safe from harm, and comfort those in need of healing mercies.

.

Jeanette this is bad news for sure. I would say people are having a bad time breathing around the tires burning.


Heads up Savannah, Georgia! A local warehouse fire fueled by 5,600 tons of rubber will significantly affect visibility and air quality this evening. A Dense Smoke Advisory for Chatham county remains in effect until 11pm tonight. http://ow.ly/tqwNF

Good Morning, I did not make it in to visit yesterday, had some running to do...


Michael, I hope you get to feeling better soon...

Like you I drink coffee, we were raised on it, Bruce my husband does not drink it but both my sons do...


J'net, I have missed your posts,I just love reading them, always brings a smile to my face..

Sad to say I am always up around 3 a.m., sleep seems to not want to be my friend...I sleep 5 or 6 hours then I am awake, makes me very tired later in the day.


Hello to everyone else, I have got to read thru and get to know who is here...


I am going to look thru the other topics and do some reading


Have a great day

Michael.......We are not coffee drinkers here but I'll sit and have a cup of cocoa with you and your coffee.  Wasn't I lucky to find a man that also didn't like coffee?  We have never had to buy it.  At one time I kept a jar of instant in the cabinet just in case my parents sat down long enough to indulge in a cup.  Between the noise from the kids and the excitement of the dogs, they never stayed very long at all. 

I really liked your devotional this morning, it was one of those that make some people bite their lower lip.  Ray and I attended a little church regularly for several years without ever joining it.  The reason we left was because the preacher became more of a people pleaser than following the word of God.  Sooner or later it seems to happen to the best of them.  The more people they please, the more tithes they get in the offering plate.  Such a shame but so true.

.

I absolutely loved your scripture on the Rapture.  If you will notice, I got carried away with a lot of expounding on the subject.  That passage has raised many questions and much confusion among younger Christians that I just had to tackle it.  I hope you don't mind.  

.

It's embarrassing to tell you this, it makes me feel so guilty, but we are expecting a high today in the mid 60's and for tomorrow also.  I saw on the weather map that you are due for more precipitation, don't know if it is rain, mix or snow.  With your below freezing temperatures, I hope it's not rain or icy mix.  Guess we both should feel better today after we both had visits with our doctors.  I'm glad to hear that you are getting better, even if it is ever so slowly.  We want you well and back to your old self 100% so you can start farming again soon.  That cough will wear you out in no time and zap all your strength.  It makes my rib-cage area so sore it hurts to take a deep breath sometimes.  Keeping you and yours in prayer always.

.

Now, where is the rest of the group?  Oh yeah, it's the weekend.  

.

May the Lord keep us all safe and provide for the needs of each of His children.

Its another cold start, 29 degrees to a predicted fare day of 51 by afternoon.  It can't warm up fast enough for me, my doctors appointment of 2 weeks ago had to be rescheduled and I have to go today for 2pm.  The sun is up and bright and looks inviting, at least it will be above freezing before I have to leave.  I'm really dreading this day something fierce.

.

Holly........Even after a long work week and struggling with that messy weather, you still manage to sound upbeat and chipper, a real pleasure to have around.  You are a ray of sunshine and bless me more than you can imagine.  

.

Carla.......Glad you encountered no problems this morning getting into group.  Had to snicker that you were awake enough at 3:30am to appreciate the beauty of the stars.  Our rains ended early enough here to dry out before the temps dropped to freezing so we didn't have any ice this time.  Thank You Lord for that.  

.

Justice, that was cute about the Foreign Exchange Student. I think if I were one of the smaller cats, I would be afraid of that big monster sharing my dinner.  LOL.  

.

Kaya........Somehow I just knew there wasn't a bashful bone in your body. I figured Care2 had eaten your post or else it got lost in cyber space as it so often happens that way.

.

Carol was back this morning on one of the other threads, glad to see that she still has power and able to communicate.

.

Hope to be hearing from the rest of you that are MIA real soon.  You are missed.

May the Lord keep us safe and guide us in all our ways.

Woke up to 33 this morning and not expecting to get out of the 30's all day.  Tonights low 28.  We are due for more wintry mix, rain and sleet today but hoping that it won't make it this far south.  Just more mess making it's way NE.

.

Nance........it is so great to see you posting again on your threads.  Your graphic today looks almost like orange magnolias, but minus the leaves.  I couldn't identify what kind of flowers they were.

.

Gabra.......happy to see you posting also.  

.

Johnny.........it's been a long time since you stopped posting, I'm elated to see you back again as well.  Thanks for your contribution today.

.

Carla.......don't leave us now, this is just a short little setback and things should get better in just a few days from now. 

.

Praying that our northern members, Johnny, Linda, Justice, Gabra, Holly, Michael, Carol, and any others that I have missed, do not lose power through all of this mess.

.

May the Lord in His mercy protect us all from any harm and comfort all those in need of His healing touch.

Michael......we are due to drop below freezing tonight also, but hopefully only to 30 or extreme upper 20's.  I hope the worst of this next storm keeps you on the very outer edges and barely affects you at all.  I'm sorry to hear about your back, I was not aware of that problem or health issue.  Will include that in my prayers from now on.  

.

Carla........We had some pretty healthy wind gusts yesterday also.  The way this house is insulated, if we can hear the wind at all, it has to be a big gust.  There weren't many though and didn't do any damage......just ushered in the colder temps again.  I am praying so hard for an early Spring.......its just not normal for the coastal areas to be this cold.

.

Kaya.......It was nice of you to stop by, sorry you didn't have anything to say.  I never thought of you as being bashful before.  LOL.

.

May the Lord guide us in all our thoughts, words, and deeds and continue to protect us from all harm.

Sorry about missing saying hello yesterday, time got away from me all day it seemed...

J'net, I was disappointed in the super bowl also, was rooting for Peyton, they sure fell apart fast...

This has been such a cold winter for all of us, will be glad to see spring get here...

The wind has really been blowing here,it scared my dog a couple of times...

Hello to everyone that I have not mentioned by name, I need to read thru and see what all is happening with each of you...

It's a bit airish on the Gulf coast this mornig, but should be warming up to 72 by afternoon.  Also with the daytime warming, thunderstorms will be developing, some could be severe and possibly tornadic in nature.  Sounds like a very prayerful day for us.  Tonights low 37, tomorrow's high 48 and the low 32.  It's all downhill after today.

.

Nance........Great to hear that you have been having pretty weather in the land of snow and ice.  If anybody deserves it, you sure do.

.

Chapter 26 of Matthew is now started.  It is a very, very, long chapter so I will do short sections often until we get through it all.

.

Prayers for all those members that are not coming in that they are all well, keeping warm, and safe.

May the Lord keep all of us safe in His loving care and guide us in all our ways.

Afternoon, y'all

Been purty -50 C up here in the Land of Ice and Snow

Somehow they call it the Artic Flow that has gone 'Polar Vortex.'  Kept warm.  Had to get a new battery, as mine was wore out, now better to start.

Keep warm and stay safe

BRRRRRR........somebody left the back door open.  After 72 yesterday, we woke up this morning to 38 and a high today of 56.  Wouldn't be so bad if we had switched over to heat, but we still had the AC on to greet this new day.  And would you believe that we are due for 71 again tomorrow?  This is just pain crazy.  

.

We were so disappointed in the Super Bowl game, I went to sleep during half time and slept through the whole 2nd half. Oh well, what can you say?  It was obviously a gamblers game.  Over 75% of the hype leading up to the game was for Seattle, that should have told us something.  Now we can look forward to next year and hope our favorite teams do better.

.

Carla......love seeing you here when I come in and love your little doggie snoozing on his back.  That is so cute.  The rain passed over us quickly and was gone in no time.  Don't think it will last long enough to push you offline.  Hope not anyway.

.

Michael......looks like you are in line to get wet today with something......either rain or worse.  Stay indoors if you can and enjoy the day.  I really enjoyed your devotionals this morning.  I had never really thought about it, that the world crowns success but God crowns faithfulness.  That is a beautiful phrase to remember.  I hope I can.  

.

Holly.......I'm so very sorry about your accident on Friday and praise God you and the baby are ok.  Those are never planned or intentional, William should not be angry with you for this.  I will say prayers for your relationship with all your family.  I'm also happy for you that the temps have increased a little bit.  I think there is another storm about to hit your area so don't put away your snow boots yet.  I think they will come in handy in the next few days.

.

That nasty old groundhog has predicted another 6 weeks of wintertime weather for us.  Have all of you been reading about the fake snow storms?  There is something not quite right with this snow.  I watched a video of a man taking ice from his freezer in one hand and a small snowball from outside in the other hand and holding them both over a fire. The freezer ice took only 11 seconds to make the first drop of water.  The snow from outdoors took over 6 minutes to begin to melt enough to make a drop of water and only then because it was moved closer to the fire.  It is said that there are dangerous chemicals in the fake snow.  All of this is on the field where our food crops come from, it's in the water that we drink, and we need to know who is responsible for this and what the expected outcome is to be.

.

May the Lord continue to keep us all safe while providing for the individual needs of all His children.

It's a wonderful, warm, 65 degree, rainy day on the Gulf coast and pushing for a high today of 73.  That is just perfect down here.  At least any groundhogs in our area will not be seeing their shadow.  Have not yet turned on the TV to see if the "official" groundhog saw his shadow or not. Last year he did not and we still had another 6 weeks of winter.  The first day of Spring will be March 20......that is only 46 more days......shadow or no shadow.  I'm praying for an early seasonal change temperature wise anyway.

.

HELLOOOOOOOO Miss Carla......you are a fantastic sight for sore eyes.  I'm so happy to see you are back with us again and hope you stay around this time.  You have really been missed.  I know you are enjoying the warmer days, and hopefully the rain will not detract from it's pleasure.  

.

Holly.......Am glad to see you back today, I was the ONLY one here all day yesterday.  Hope all is well with you and yours.  

.

Now we need to hear from all the other members that are missing in action.  Nance.......come give us some more on Biblical Names and Inspirational Poetry/Hymns.  Linda, Florika, Johnny, Gerry, Justice, Carol, Kaya, we want to hear from all of you again too.

May the Lord keep us all safe and provide for the needs of His children.

Another month tucked away into the pages of history and we are starting out with beautiful weather in the South.  We woke up to 51 degrees and heading for 72 by afternoon. Tonight's low 61 and 74 for tomorrow with rain.

.

It is most unusual that I should be the first to make the rounds in the morning, did everyone sleep in or just waiting for me to get out of the way.  

.

We have a new member this morning, hope that all of you will help me in giving Autumn Brook from Maine a warm welcome. It's most likely anything but warm where she lives.

.

May the Lord watch over us and keep us safe from harm and guide us in all our ways.
