Don't be offended.........

When I was MUCH younger, I loved listening to John Starnes.  His voice is like velvet music drifting into my spirit like a blessing from my Holy Father.  Today I needed a blessing.

Time has passed, and I found a new video of how God is using John today with laughter and song.

I let myself get offend yestersday by someone I love, but that knows where all my buttons it wasn't Big Mick....grin.  It bothered me all night.  I know better than to get offended, but there you go.  I prayed this morning asking God to please let church (my TV) send me a message.  Joyce Meyers sermon was on being offended.  How much plainer can it be....LOL.  Somehow it still surprises me when God answers my prayers so quickly.

Just love each other today,

Mooses, Meeses on the Porch

Block 11
I'm loving the browns.  Of course, I'm a fall person.
I think we skipped spring.  It feels like summer here in central Texas.

Today a mean old Bluejay was dive bombing a pretty Cardnial.  I remember
when my kitty used to hide under the car to avoid Bluejays.

Everyone is playing Bingo.  Now Dakota has a straight face.
First Bloom
My daughter worked in our yard.  She did a great job!

My babies are leaving Sunday.  It will be very quiet and lonely.
I'm really going to miss the kids.

Grandbabies, Kids, and Mom

Spring Break is upon us, and Big Mick says he's heading to Mexico........grin.  Everyone will be here, some in passing, for the next 10 days.  Our 4 grandkids, ages 7-12 are spending their break with us, and our kids Brett and Shelley will be here on and off.

A new addition for Spring Break, at least for the weekend, will be my Mom.  She fell last night, but is doing okay today.  We've lowered the bed in the guest room and dug out her walker.  Everything is in place for her arrival.  There will be fighting for the big TV....Mom wants it on the news, the kids want it on the Disney channel, and Big Mick wants it on golf...............LOL.  It should be an interesting vacation.

Keep good thoughts for me and I hope Mick was kidding about Mexico........giggle.

My Mom...

Most of you have seen the picture of the quilt I made for my Mom, Anna Beth (on the right), for her 89th Birthday.  Mom and I have had a relationship like many Mothers and Daughters.....grin....we know which buttons to push.
This post is not about the quilt, but about my Mom.  She's 90 now and has been very fortunate to have pretty good health.  She's always been able to out walk me and out talk me....giggle.  Recently, we have taken her to ER two times.  The back pain turned out to be a pinched nerve and the medicine she was given played havic with her digestive system.
I stayed with her on Tuesday night and my niece stayed last night.  She has what she needs, health care workers, nurses, family taking care of her. She even said today her pain was better.
So whats the point of my post?  I'm not sure.  Something is changing besides just her health.  She's unusally tough as nails.  I guess I'm asking for prayer for my Momma to restore her health, her spirit, and her zest for life.
Thanks Everyone!

Billie Beth
