I wish we had a cat to enjoy....my husband found a SNAKE.....in our front flower bed! What keeps snakes away I wonder? Sorry its been a week since I've posted....my husband has been home more and we've been busy. My sister-in-law is in a rehabilitation hospital, still not allowed up but we are hopeful the Lord will restore her health. If you've prayed for her, thank you!!!!~~~ Plus...I took the time to cut out glass and grind the edges all ready for foiling to make a new stained glass window hanging. Almost 70 pieces. I've been wanting to make one for a long time now. Its been almost 3 years since I've done any stained glass. I think this one is going to be a beauty! Peach & white frosted glass for the background and the design is mostly lavender & blue.
My husband is reading aloud to me right now, so I need to close. Another book by Robert Whitlow...=). Won on ebay, no less!
Thanks for coming by to visit me...I'm thinking of you all tonight and hoping for you a blessed Sunday.
"But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD." Psalms 3, 4 & 5.
I'm trusting in Jesus Christ for my all, on earth now and in eternity too. Oh how sweet to trust in Jesus!

Hi Maggie,

I think owls keep snakes away. I don't think you need buy a pet owl. You can get a plastic one!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Oooh, I hate snakes. I hate that you found one in your flower bed. We have found 2 or 3 in our home over the past 40 years here. That is a real scare.

I know you can buy those little twirly things on a pole that blow in the wind, that is suppose to keep snakes away. I am not sure they work though. It seems to me like snakes go where and when they want.lol.

I hope your sister-in-law get along alright.

What a nice husband to read to you. One of my sons reads to his wife all the time. I think that is great. connie from Texas

Hi, Maggie Ann. I run in spurts of being online as well.

"But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.

I love this. It sings of intimacy with the Lord to me and encourages me to adore Him with affectionate thoughts as I go throughout my day. Thank you for that. Which brings to mind...(Philippians 4:7-9) To think on whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report, is to stay focused on Christ because He is all those things and more rather than to think on positive things such as happy puppies and fluffy bunnies which is man's idea of channeling secular happy thoughts. The first brings the peace of God while the second only changes a mood.

Your SIL:
As I pray, I'm thinking that God has her right where He wants her. Ironically, when we're flat on our backs we often have a more time than we'd like to ponder life.

I look forward to seeing the progress of your new project. Any specific pattern or image in mind? I need to get busy about my sewing clothes and dolls. But, the good news is that I've been diligent about my cross stitch.
