For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

A gift to you . . .

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
- Harriet Beecher Stowe

I always say - tie a knot and hang on!

Hey Sandie!

I wish I could sing like Sandi Patty! I love this song and a few others of hers.

I miss Bugs Bunny and my old cartoons I grew up watching. Wish they would show them every once in a while.

Hope you are having a Great Day! It is 101 degrees out side on my front porch right now and it is almost 6 o'clock! I can't stand this type of heat!
