Me and my Pal

This is me and Lucy. Lucy is my grand-daughters dog. She loves to sit very close to me. She really is a very needy animal. I don't have any great-grandchildren yet so I guess Lucy will have to do. I love it!

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many;

not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.

Avoid stuck-on wax - Spray the inside of each hold lightly with non-stick vegetable spray before putting the candle in. The wax will pop right out for easy cleaning.

Busy weekend

Sunday was a busy day. Beside setting aside time for worship we visited families at two funeral homes. Two godly ladies were taken to their eternal home ; one last Thursday and one on Friday. Their funeral services are this morning at 11. Both were in their late 80s and had lived their last days in a nursing home. So it is the kids loss but definitely their GAIN.

I am always troubled about something when I go to a funeral home. So often it sounds like everyone is having such a great time seeing old friends/relatives that one forgets that there is a grieving family there. I know it is a time of healing but sometime there is just too much noise. Does anyone else feel this way? I remember when I was the grieving person and everyone was laughing and having a good time I wanted to say "listen up people - I just lost someone who was very dear to me - it is not funny! I don't feel like laughing right now - maybe later you can tell me that funny story. Maybe I have it all wrong - I did appreciate them coming; that meant allot to me; the hugs, the "I'm praying for you" etc. just not all the noise. I would like your thoughts on this. Maybe you can help me see it a different way. Thanks for listening..........

If you would make a man happy, do not add to his possessions but subtract from the sum of his desire.
