Pink Saturday -Including a puzzle and a birthday. . .
Today is Pink Saturday over at Beverly's - How Sweet The Sounds Blog.
Today is some one's birthday - the person I'm sort of show casing - for the Pinkies. We're supposed to talk about another person's blog on the Pink List.
I'm sure most of you know her. She's loved by all. She has a great blog that I'm sure most of you follow her. She comments to everyone.
These are her pictures - (hope it was okay my stealing them). So happy birthday friend.
Can y'all guess who it is?
Okay - she just went to a tea house with her God Child and friend.
This is her name - Sheila.
Yummies at the Tea House.
She had a visitor here from England.
She took her everywhere with her.
It's her birthday today.
Flowers to you Sheila.
And yes - girls LOVE chocolate.
Have a happy birthday.
Sheila The Quintessential Magpie!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I found out it is Spencer's birthday today too, over at Bellemere Cottage.
Happy Birthday to John Newton -
"The love I bear Christ is but a faint and feeble spark, but it is an emanation from himself: He kindled it and he keeps it alive; and because it is his work, I trust many waters shall not quench it." - John Newton
Anyone hear of John Newton? He was the Angry Sailor. Lived years ago. I read that book to my children when they were little.
He was a little boy when his mother died. His father raised him and forced him to work on a ship and be head of a slave trip. He was later captured and forced to work for the Navy.
He was a bad man. He hated himself. One day the ship he was on was in a horrible storm and was sinking he thought he was dying and when he didn't his conversion started.
Once he was saved - his whole life changed. He wrote a song. "Amazing Grace."
It's also Amelia Earhart's birthday too.
