Well, I can say that I can't claim the tv, internet and cable are a time waster! I can say that I am a time waster! We had a tornado go thru last week. It ripped the lines off the house. We got electric that same day restored. But the rest didn't get back on till Mon.. So I should have so much stuff caught up since I didn't have any time wasters right?? Wrong! I just replaced it with other things. I can say though that I have been working extra hours. So that doesn't help. I should have a clean house, all my paper work caught up and a afghan done. Instead I can say I read a couple of books, took naps and watched some dvd. I really need a class on time management. But not really because I don't seem to be motivated enough to not waste my time! You need to really want to do it. So tommorrow will be another day and maybe I will start then!

First off let me say we haven’t got the new internet yet. Now not till the end of the month.
This year we have seen a lot of death. This week we seen other. It got me to think about what legacy are we leaving behind. I seen a apartment get packed within a hour. A persons life boxed up in that short of time. But it isn’t about the stuff you leave behind it is about your life. What will be remembered about you?
Do you remember the song we sing in churches “It is Well With My Soul” by Horation G. Spafford. If you haven’t heard that song or don’t know the history of it I would encourage you to read about it. This past week I heard about the legacy that he has left behind. His ministries lasted long after his death.
That is how you want your legacy to be. Money and stuff don’t last it is what you do with Jesus Christ that does.

I know I haven't been faithful on posting. But I will get better. I love posting. Right now though we are having phone problems. Then we have no internet. But the next couple of days we are changing to a completely different service. I pray that solves some problems. Nothing really knew around here. We have a busy August at church. I also am working alot. So for now I will close but I will be back. I will then start posting alot. I want to blog more about Fibro. and also do some craft blogs. But I also want to blog about Jesus! Because that is what it is all about!

Well, we are finally getting new internet and phone service. Even going with direct tv. We have such problems with who we have now. It didn't use to be that way. But the service guy has been out more times then I can count. So it is hard to post when your internet is down. I can do without internet but we need the phone line. I have a friend that we are her lifeline. Can't call if we have no phone. Our cell phone minutes sure goes fast also when you have to use it like your land line. This month we used every minute. Thankfully, today starts a new month. If we went over I think the phone company should pay it! Like that would happen. I also am working extra hours at work. So, lately I am staying busy. I am trying to crochet a baby blanket but I am having such problems with it. I don't understand why it is a easy pattern. So, thats about it around here. August is going to be even busier for me. Well, have a great day!

God's Hands.Author Unknown

Wishing to encourage her young son's progress on the piano, a mother took her boy to a Paderewski concert. After they were seated, the mother spotted a friend in the audience and walked down the aisle to greet her. Seizing the opportunity to explore the wonders of the concert hall, the little boy rose and eventually explored his way through a door marked "NO ADMITTANCE."

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that the child was missing.

Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy was sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy's ear, "Don't quit. Keep playing."

Then, leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running obligato. Together, the old master and the young novice transformed a frightening situation into a wonderfully creative experience. The audience was so mesmerized they couldn't recall what else the great master played. Only the classic "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."

That's the way it is with God. What we can accomplish on our own is hardly noteworthy. We try our best, but the results aren't exactly graceful flowing music. But with the hand of the Master, our life's work truly can be beautiful. Next time you set out to accomplish great feats, listen carefully. You can hear the voice of the Master, whispering in your ear, "Don't quit. Keep playing."

I wanted to post something to go along with my last blog. But I have been so busy that I won't at this time do it justice. So for now I will post this.

It's the struggle that makes us strong
Author Unknown
A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole.
Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.
So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.
The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.
The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.
Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.
What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were God's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives.
If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us.
We would not be as strong as what we could have been. We could never fly!
I asked for Strength... and God gave me Difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for Wisdom... and God gave me Problems to solve.
I asked for Prosperity... and God gave me Brain and Brawn to work.
I asked for Courage... and God gave me Danger to overcome.
I asked for Love... and God gave me Troubled people to help.
I asked for Favors... and God gave me Opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted ... I received everything I needed!
