Talk, talk, . . talk talk talk!!!

OMG!.... I was in the public restroom . I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice in the other stall. "Hi How are you?"
Me: embarassed   "Doin fine!"
Stall: "So, what are you up to?"
Me:  "Uhhh I'm like you just sitting here."
Stall: "Can I come over?"
Me: (attitude) "No, I'm a little busy right now!!"
Stall: "Listen, I'll have to call you back. There's an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all of my questions!"

I received this in an e-mail from a friend and it had me laughing out loud. I could so see this happening to me!

It got me to thinking. Have you noticed how phones have invaded every avenue of our lives?
I will be the first to admit... I do not leave the house without my phone but I wonder... have we gone too far? I do sometimes turn mine off making myself go into exile and it is such a 
freeing feeling.   What do you think? Could you give up your phones?

Miracle Makeover for Charlie

I believe in miracles. The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.(Hebrews13:8)
 Now if Jesus performed miracles, healed the sick, cast out demons, etc yesterday, He will do the same today and
 forever. We need to get it into our minds that God can perform miracles for us. All we have to do is believe and act upon
what Gods word says. When we do that, a miracle will happen in your life.

You can be a part of a miracle that is going on now.

Please go to the link below to meet little Charlie. He has brain tumors and is currently going through chemo.
Watch the excitement as people work together to give him and his siblings miracle makeovers for their rooms.

Sunday Reflections

Do you ever feel like you are all alone?

God's word shows that you are not alone in this world. The Lord is your father.
He is looking out for your good and always watches over you.

"As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
Psalms 103:13

"I will never leave you nor forsake you."  Hebrews 13:5

Are these vintage Raggedy Ann and Andy's not beautiful?
These were on display at the antique mall. However, they were a bit pricey for my budget.

Ragged Ann was a fictional character created by the American writer, Johnny Gruelle, for a series of children books. (1880 -1938)
Gruelle created the  Raggedy Ann doll for his daughter Marcella when she brought him an old rag doll and he drew a face for it.

He introduced Raggedy Andy dressed in a sailor suit and hat in 1920.

Marcella died at age 13 after being vaccinated for smallpox without her parent consent.
Authorities blamed a heart defect but her parents blamed the vaccination.

Gruelle became an opponent of vaccination and the Raggedy Ann doll was used as a 
symbol by the anti-vaccination movement.
So glad you dropped by and y'all come back.

Birthday, beach and blues

It's hard to believe the youngest grandbaby just turned two. Seems like only yesterday. . .

Big brother stepped up to the plate to help her blow out the candles.

The only thing that rivals birthday cake is a day at the beach!

She has Papa wrapped around her little finger.

Be sure to visit Smiling Sally for Blue Monday and wish her a speedy recovery. She is
truly a dedicated blogger, blogging from the ER. Get well quickly Sally!
