He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalms 91:1

I got an email the other day reminding us to fly our American flags this week and weekend in remembrance of 9/11.  I can hardly believe it has been almost ten years since that horrible day.  We all agreed that life would not be the same ever again.  It hasn't.

May God bless our nation.  May He reign down grace upon us.  I pray He will grant us mercy for how we have turned out backs on Him.

Please remember those who lost their lives that day.  Lift up those who were left without loved ones.

This pic was sent to me in an forwarded email a few years ago.  I do not know the source.  It is a beautiful reminder of God's love for America.

Random Happenings

My blogging has taken a back seat to other happenings around here...

I have to say, it is not at the top of priorities.  Plus, after the camera got eat up with milk from little Pae's bottle at the beach, I haven't taken any pics.  But,,,,,,,,,,  GUESS WHAT???  Poppie (Mr. G) bought me a new and improved version! Now, if I just had the time to get it out of the box!

I promise (well, I will TRY) to get it out this weekend and see if I can take some awesome pics for ya.

Life is busy.  I do get surprised at how busy it can get.  But, I am thankful that I have some busy, and that I am able to do the busy things.

Very soon the 'Bobkittens' will have our first annual reunion!!!!  Can't wait.  You will hear all about it........

On to other news:  Have you read "The Help" yet?  You must.  Run, don't walk, people, to the nearest bookstore or yank your BF's book from her little hands and READ READ READ.  I totally could not put it down.  (I had to, though, to get some sleep!)  I read it in three days flat, mostly between the hours of 8 p.m. and 2 p.m.    Ugh.  But, it was worth it.

I have to say that it reflects a dark time in our nation's history--but thankfully we have moved on past that era, for the most part.  It's a great read, a touching and tender story of love that transcends through race.   Get your tissues out, girlies, and be ready to mess up your mascara.


Have any of you fellow bloggies read "Faux Fuchsia" ?  You MUST.  She is Australian with a wonderful sense of STYLE and HUMOR.  I happened upon her blog about a year ago, and when I need a laugh or just a little of fun I read her blog.   I have asked permission to use her hilariously funny phrases, but I must tell you I borrowed them from her!  Examples:  'actioning' as in,   "this morning I actioned up some biscuits for breakfast"  or "look away Dr. Atkins"   or   "Run, don't walk people".  She, her very clever self, coined the "actioning" phrase.  I JUST LOVE IT.  (FF would say "I just LUFF it!)  ;)

FF very entertaining blog:  http://fauxfuchsiastyle.blogspot.com/

Can you tell I am a word freak?  I am currently working on some very creative phrases of my own....

Have an awesome Labor Day!  All of you travelers, be safe!
