that can't be you, July, can it?!

Seriously?!  Seriously?!?!?!  Who turned the calendar to July?  I recommend that whoever did so stay in hiding at least until August when I will be on the lookout for whomever is responsible for rolling us over to August.


I think this will now officially be my third attempt at coming back from my hiatus.  This relationship is startimg to resemble a breakup that just won't happen and stay 'happened'; time after time trying to come back together and force some sort of peaceful happiness out of obvious misery.  I DON'T WANT TO END UP LIKE ONE OF 'THOSE COUPLES' (Bloggettes & their PDTLS--Public Display of Their Life's Story).  Nope, I won't let that happen.  I do not want that to happen.  I LOVE blogging and by golly it's the only way I can remember all of my life's comings & goings, struggles & victories, dark days & streams of sunshine, much less how many pairs of scissors I own (9: 1-orange handled, 2- black handled, 1-hair cutters, 1-pink bedazzled handled, 1-blue handled, 1-magenta handled, 1-black & red handled, 1-athletic tape cutters.  Plus a handful of scallopped scrapbook ones but we will stick with the original nine.).  I do not normally sit around and count my scissors; although this past week's findings might give me reason to reconsider.

You see, I have been really very busy.  Really.  Truly.  Very.  Busy.  Like most of you if I had to guess.  In my pastor's sermon yesterday, he pointed our need to stop, rest, & relax for one-third of every day.  Wow!  Don't know that I ever have done that consistently.  Maybe when I was six; but then again,  I did, after all, have a new baby brother to be getting prepared for at the ripe ole age of six.  That's it!  It's all Andrew's fault!!!  Well, probably not so but, hey, it did start somewhere.

Anyhow...will leave with a picture from this weekend.  We went to visit J's family.  Both brothers, SIL, and nephew were all at his parents' this weekend.  It was great getting to see everyone and to celebrate Tom's birthday.  Happy Birthday!

memory verse 8: Colossians 1:9-12

I officially fell off the bandwagon :(  But today is a new day; Praise the Lord!  Here are the verses that I am committed to memorizing for the next 2 weeks:

Colossians 1:9-12

New International Version (NIV)

Thanksgiving and Prayer

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,[e] 10 so that you may live a life worthyof the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[f] to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.
