Don't these nursturtians look like preserved sunshine? I love their rich vibrant colors... they are glorious. I can't seem to get 'going' this morning. My blood pressure tends to be on the low side 93/58 and I'm wondering if that has something to do with my lack of stamina and energy. Ordinarily..I would hope to have something done by now. I did give the bathroom a good scrubbing though. This afternoon I get the stitches taken out of my gum from the dental surgery. I'll be glad when thats over and am thankful all is well with the procedure-so far! When wondering to end my post with....my eye is drawn like a magnet to George MacDonald's book....'The Curage of Glaston, The Lady's Confession, and The Baron's Apprenticeship" a three-in-one novel. I've never read it yet..but should I start something like this when I've so many other things to do? Yet, I may..... First 2 lines, "A swift, gray November wind had taken every chimney of the house for an organ pipe and was roaring in them all at once. Helen Lingard had not ventured out all day"....... And ending my post with these precious truths...

"Be careful (anxious) for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God, And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Taken from the book of Philippians chapter 4, verses 5-8.

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans 10:9

......A completely different approach to life and eternity than most of the present views the entertainment industry would feed us. These words of scripture are the 'way, the truth, and the life'....Jesus Christ. Gospel of John..."In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Life is so very short...are you trusting in the shed blood of Jesus to redeem your guilty soul? I am.

And thank you so much for liking my photo, of 'looking through the lobbey window,' out onto Broadway. In my Photos-City-Minephoto blog.

The thing is, I don't care that much for what they have done to the front of the lobby, in that it has a more Art Deco and Arts And Crafts look to it now. I prefer the back part, which still looks more authentic Victorian.

So I didn't like the lamp to the left of the picture, since it's quite Arts And Crafts. But, I loved the lamp reflection in the window and the view out to Brodway. Soooo, I put it up. :-)

Some years ago, our daughter was married in her Great, Great, Great Aunt's wedding gown. {I hope I have the 'great-great-greats right, but it is a circa 1904 wedding dress.} And the reception was held here, in this local small Victorian hotel. It was a perfect gem then, with all Victorian. Purrrrrfect setting in every way. So that's why we love it so much.

I am trusting, Maggie Ann, in the precious blood of Jesus to save me. Nothing more and nothing less. Some may think that living righteously in Christ will get us to heaven. However, it isn't by our works but His works.

You're one up on me for cleaning the bathroom. I've walked the dog and managed to get a small turkey in the oven for dinner. Otherwise there are too many things to read and create. Cross Stitch and sewing are calling my name.

At your suggested interest along my blog, I've written a post on my simple eating plan and hope to post it this coming week. Perhaps someone will glean something of value in it.

You could be very right; low blood pressure contributes to limited oomph. It's happened to me. Hope your stitches slip out unhindered.

God bless you richly.

Those two starting lines are very seductive! I could curl up in a big recliner and read that book right now!

That is certainly a beautiful picture of those flowers. I've never even seen those before. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
