He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

What If

Over the last few months several people close to me have lost loved ones.  
Heartbreaking loss. 
Any loss is hard.  
It is especially hard when things are not settled between you and people you love.
I do not know if things were right between some of these friends. 
I do know it causes me to want to make sure that those who I love
and have been part of my life,
that I love them.

Take time to convey to those you love words that will never end in regret.

 Therefore, God’s chosen ones, holy and loved, put on heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, accepting one another and forgiving one another if anyone has a complaint against another. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive.

Colossians 3:12-13 (HCSB)

Three and a half months, really?

I cannot believe it has been that long since I have posted a blog... 
 I need to take a long hard look at this thing and decide if I will continue this journey of writing or not.  It's a love/hate thing.  Not really hate, but dread.  When I am busy and many things are going on, I feel frustrated that I do not push myself to write.  I do write 'in my head' but somehow it never gets to the computer.

There is lots to blog about- those grandbabies (they are not babies anymore, but I'll always call them that) are growing up.  Paisley is two and a half and trying to run the show.  :0)  Ansley is just so grown up at eight, and the two middles, Millie and Addison start first grade!  

No earth shattering events, just life and what comes with it.  

Concerns for our nation, and our world. 
Oppressive heat in the south this summer.  
Friends with illness and diseases that make us realize how life is so fragile. 
'Lympic watching, cheering, yellin', and covering of eyes :(   (Please, wear more clothing over those bodies!  ugh...)  
Painting, painting, and projects.  
Bible studies, friend lunches, family visits and flower watering.  
Puppy loving, coloring, sewing pillows and curtains.  
Pinterest browsing (oh, my!).  

Yep, busy times.

Look for me soon!  I need to charge up my camera battery and download a few pics.  Robin got some great shots on our beach vacation. My, the summer has flown!

Have a great weekend  :)
