SORRY!

I apologize for not posting in so long. Life has a way of getting in the way of things. Of course, I do find time to do whatever I really want to do, such as play computer games, watch tv, write whenever I want, etc. So once again I apologize. I have no excuse.

I am excited to let all you readers know I am co authoring a book. It is about a family pet and it is a story of how he saved my son's life, then lo and behold, the family had to save his life. It is going to be edge of your seat entertainment. (I hope anyway). 

Lot's of changes have occurred since I last wrote. We downsized from 9 people in our household to 5. that is quite a change. Our power bill went from over $350 to $103. Thank God for that. Our food bill is down of course. Our laundry is way down and our house is changed quite a bit. The grand kids are pretty quiet. I do get up with them in the mornings and cook breakfast for them than my husband drives them down the road to the bus stop. He prays with them each morning before they go to school. When he returns home, we watch a bible DVD and listen to four chapters of the Bible then we pray. Afterwards I walk on the treadmill, then he walks. Then we go about our business. I to write or clean, he to clean and clean, and clean. Well, you get the point.

I am going now. I just wanted to touch bases with you all. I am so thankful for my Jesus and I am so thankful for my family. I hope to reach out to you again soon.

Just Thinking

well, well, well. The new year has officially begun. I pray for a great year and I do so wish my family will be able to get their lives in control and let God do His will in their lives. So many of my children have had rough times and as a mom, it truly hurts me to see them going through such pain. They are all Christians but not all walking with the Lord. Some of them want their own way and some of them are too impatient to wait upon God and His will.

We reap what we sow so I pray for them to want a close fellowship with God. He needs to become real in their lives and they need to live for Him. So do I. All the above is what I need also.

It is one thing to give advice, quite another to take it sometimes.  
It is quiet here tonight. One grandson is at the nearby school playing basket ball with his cousin, another grandchild is waiting to go to the movies. My hubby is watching TV and I am writing this blog. It is nice to relax for a while. Ought O. Hubby is sleeping. LOL. He does that a lot now days. I wonder if God meant for humans to retire or to go on working until we die. I think go on working. If one owned/worked his own farm/ranch, there would be no retiring. So makes sense to work until you die. Rest on Sunday and at evening. Whew! I am so thankful for retirement. Yes! Raising grandkids is a work in itself. Love them to death but in two years, they will all be raised. Maybe not gone out of the nest, but raised. 50 + years of marriage, five kids, and haven't had an empty nest for 46 years. I wouldn't change a thing. Love all of them, glad we were here for our kids when they needed us. Looking forward to the quieter times ahead though. 
I am going to close on that note. I will write more later.

Just Sharing a Little News

I am so sorry that I have taken over two months to get back to my blog. I am sure I don't have a good reason for not writing. Too busy. Too much going on. Too lazy. Too many internet games to play. I could take my pick of the reasons and probably find all of them to be true. 
My brother came out from Wichita, Kansas for a visit with my family. He was raised here in Crescent City so he knows oodles of people. He spreads his self pretty thin going around visiting as many as he can. He loves to fish. He plans his vacation around salmon season here. Our folks are gone to be with the Lord now but as we have siblings living in CC, he still comes out to visit every year or two. It is enjoyable reminiscing about the days gone by. We are in our late 60's now and as I have been married over 50 years, my brother and my husband have lots of old stories to share. They both worked in mills so they share lumber stories. They were both in the service, so they share military stories. Each time he comes out for a visit, the time flies by and he is gone back home too soon. 
Today, my husband went out to start the truck as he was going to Bible study. He goes each Thursday morning. Low and behold, our transmission was out. We drove into the yard after a quick trip to town yesterday and heard a loud clang. It was our tranny going out. Wow, what a day this was. That was our only drive-able vehicle and now what do we do. Living on social security and paying a large mortgage payment means we don't have money to get it fixed. 
Faith is wonderful. Here is where I start living the way I have been talking. God has this and I know He is watching over me and my family. My prayers seem to get as high as the ceiling and no higher. God, where are you? God why? There are family problems too and lots of issues we need to be praying about. It will be interesting to wait and see what God has in mind for us all.

Well dear readers I will write more soon. 

Thanks for listening.

HELLO READERS

I am sorry I haven't been writing. I just let life get in the way of my days. Actually if truth be told, I do a lot of  game playing on my electronics so that is what I call Life getting in the way. LOL!

I do like to write and read a lot. I have done my share of reading but not writing. I try to write and then I get sidetracked some how or other. I have a WIP that has been in my head for over 12 years but I have not put much of it on paper. Someday, I pray, I will get it done. I suppose I could write what I know then go through and critique my own writing and edit and etc. After all, one son and one brother of mine are published authors and i have a writing published too. But it was under a pen name and i don't advertise it much.

It is a dreary, rainy day here. It stormed a whole lot last night and it is at least not windy today. We are sitting by the fire and relaxing today. It is a great day for that kind of thing. In a while we will watch some good uplifting movies and maybe have some popcorn.

Well I will write again soon I hope.
