No, I am NOT waiting for a baby!! I just couldn’t resist using this picture for this symbolizes the reward ofย  Waiting! 9 months of waiting! Your wait may be longer and right now seem like forever, but in the end it will be forgotten!

Merry Christmas to all, Christ was born for us because God cares for every one. God became a man so man can be Born from the Spirit and live with Him forever / BIBLE IN MY LANGUAGE:

Kevlar Hearts–In Which The World Can Be a Dark Place

This emotional post touched my heart and I had to share it! May you be touched also by the deep love and emotion in this letter. This is from a blogger who writes letters to her little daughter as she is growing up.

Dear Lily June,

The internet moves very quickly when it comes to processing violent events. Victimsโ€™ faces get plastered across social media sites; perpetratorsโ€™ backgrounds get analyzed for who could commit such atrocities and why. And then, the internet moves on quickly. Or rather, the people behind the internet move on. The bloggers, the tweeters, the journalists, the caring concerned citizens of planet Earth who cannot dwell in the darkness for too long return to their regularly scheduled programs of cat memes and gourmet cupcake photos. It is how it should be.

I know that, a week removed from the December 2 San Bernardino shooting and even more weeks removed from the November 20 Paris attacks, I am incredibly late to add my voice to the throng who has already successfully deconstructed, reconsidered and resisted this kind of violence. The kind of violence where innocent people die or are permanentlyโ€ฆ

Lost in Cyberspace

Oh, Lori was getting so nervous! Why hadn’t he texted? She kept looking at her phone about every 5 seconds and was just as blank as it was before. Almost like it was mocking her!

What was she thinking, did she really think he would want her as his date at the Christmas Ball? She had brought her shimmering royal blue gown with great hopes, but now it only hung in the closet with the pricey price tag still attached to it glaring at her.He had appeared so interested, so smitten with her, as he gently lifted her hand to his mouth and kissed it with his smooth lips.

He had said he would text her the next morning, she knew the Ball was that night. That is why she had rushed out last night to buy a dress that would knock him off his feet. As the day kept getting later tho, it appeared that she wouldn’t be knocking anyone off their feet. That it would be another night on the couch with the TV.

Why wasn’t she responding??? He couldn’t get her off his mind! She had charmed him with her beautiful smile and lovely laugh. Everything about her just intrigued him and he wanted to know more. He had mentioned the Christmas Ball to her, but hadn’t formally asked her and now he was kicking himself about that! They had left it that he would text her in the morning. He was up bright and early with her being the main thing on his mind. His heart had been so light and joyful, but now the silence of his phone was deafening. He kept sending the same message, praying she would respond!

The clock struck 7, he couldn’t wait no longer. He was expected to show up at the Christmas Ball promptly, as he was in charge of the music. He had dreamed of the music he would play as Lori danced in his arms, but sadly now that was not to be.

Lori grabbed her popcorn from the microwave and her Mint chocolate ice cream from the freezer as she sat down to watch Gone With The Wind one more time. Her perfect plans for tonight had gone away like the wind, so why not watch the movie. But unlike Rhett she was saying in her mind, “Frankly my dear, I DO REALLY CARE!”

Lori awoke, must have dozed off. The credits were rolling on the TV as the clock struck 11pm. What was that other sound she was hearing? Oh her phone was alerting her, she had a text. Who would be texting her now she thought, as she grabbed her phone. NO, it couldn’t be! There were half a dozen texts, all from Tony!! He was asking her to the Christmas Ball and telling her so many other lovely things. They all had been sent that morning like he had promised! Crash! The phone went flying through the air hitting the TV and it shattered! No more texting! Next time she was just gonna march the 1 block to his house and knock on his door when she hasn’t heard from him!! And with that thought, she grabbed her box of tissues and her darling poodle, marching up her long winding staircase; dreaming of Rhett being at the top of the stairs to meet her.

Tuesday’s Thoughts!

Good Morning! It is FOGGY here this morning, hopefully these selected quotes for today will clear away any fog in your brain and make you smile ๐Ÿ™‚ Anxious to read your responses as always!

  1. “I am going to go stand outside, so if anyone asks, you can just tell them I am OUTSTANDING!”ย  ( I know you probably half groaned, but you still had to laugh, right? ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. “Be someone’s sunshine when their skies are grey!”
  3. “A flower doesn’t think about competing with the flower next to it, it just Blooms!”
  4. “You are what you consistently think about.” Earl Nightingale
  5. “Remember that your greatest talent is so much more powerful then your biggest fear.”
  6. “The quieter you become, the more you can hear.”
  7. “A tiger doesn’t lose sleep over the opinions of sheep.”
  8. “I used to hope you would bring me flowers, now I plant my own.” ( And no this is no way hinting to my hubby about bringing me flowers ๐Ÿ™‚ He does a great job at that! I just like the meaning in this, she isn’t waiting anymore for someone to bring her happiness, she is doing it herself! At least that’s what I got from it, what about you?)
  9. “Sometimes people with the worst pasts can end up with the best futures!” (There is always HOPE, please never despair if you feel stuck in your past sometimes!)
  10. “If at first you don’t succeed, try it your wife’s way!” ( I just had to include this one :))

The Verdict is in!

So drum roll please……I was kicked out ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL! It was a interesting experience I will say to learn how the system works. Plus you did feel kinda important when they called you up into the jury box section and you took a seat as you looked at the Plaintiff and Defendant and their lawyers. You stand as the judge comes into the courtroom. It is kinda surreal. You think Wow, I am in a Law and Order TV show, but yet this is real. I could actually be responsible for deciding if someone is guilty or not. Exciting and a little nerve wracking. One previous juror that we saw on video said how he still remembers seeing the man who lost walking outside in the pouring rain afterwards. He said he can’t get that memory out of his head, the guy was just walking in circles. As for the other things discussed in the court room you know the saying, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”, well “What happens in the court room, stays in the the court room” ๐Ÿ™‚

As for the question about breakfast, we had a whole delightful spread! Haha! Yeah, that would be in my dream ๐Ÿ™‚ Breakfast isย  not served, I know you all are shocked ๐Ÿ™‚ Fortunately I was out in time for lunch. As interesting as it was to take in everything I am glad I didn’t get picked. It was going to be serving at least three 8 hour days and the one question I had asked last night became true! My feet did NOT touch the floor! I was sat in the 2nd row and it was up on a platform. So if I ever do get summoned again for jury duty, and I happen to get picked; I will have to ask them for a foot stool, my hubby says!

 

What will the verdict be?

So my friends do you remember that Special letter I received as my invitation to be a juror? The time has come for the decision to be made if I will be picked? Tomorrow I need to show up at the courthouse at 8am sharp, Wonder if they provide a hot breakfast for you as you wait for a decision to be made. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just know if you have to be there at lunch still there betterย  be some food!

Name your verdict? Will I get specially chosen or will they kick me out on the first round? ๐Ÿ™‚

How will it feel to be in a courtroom? What will they ask me? Will my feet touch the floor as I sit in a juror seat? Questions that you are dying to know ๐Ÿ™‚ Stay tuned and I will let you know!

For now I better hit the hay or I won’t hear them call my name for I will be in dreamland ๐Ÿ™‚ and I am guessing they may frown on that !

Goodnight all! Sweet dreams !

Napoleon vs. Monty

Yes, it is time for the post that I mentioned just a little in my post yesterday. This is my day for “Anything Goes” posts, and so today is a little story about movies. WE love our dear friends in Indiana, our visits are always too short with this wonderful family! With that said, we do find that some of us disagree on our feelings about 2 movies in particular. I figured that it might be fun to let my Awesome readers give their insight into these 2 movies. I am going to do my best to describe them a little without any bias and you make your decision and let me know in the comments below. I am sure our friends will be eagerly watching to see if their movie is chosen, just hope they have the tissue box close by ๐Ÿ™‚ And hey if you never saw these 2 movies, it is Ok,ย  you can still pick one based on what you read in my post. You can tell this isn’t a real professional poll, just for fun! As long as you pick the right one ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are the brief descriptions. First we have Napoleon Dynamite, a movie about a HS boy and his family and their every day life which includes the Grandpa shooting at cows. You know of people that do that in their every day life, right? A girl selling cosmetics showing up at Napoleon’s door and his class breaking into singing of the beautiful song The Rose. If only I had known why they suddenly broke into song. There also is the moment that cheese curls get smashed in Napoleon’s pants pocket, but he eats them anyway for hey he is hungry in the middle of class. Vote for Pedro is a very important line to take away from this movie. At least Pedro is a cool name. I will say the election in this movie MAY be more entertaining than the Presidential election.ย “Don’t worry people will vote for you cause you have a cool name, plus you are the only kid in school with a mustache!”ย  And here are someย  more quotes for you. “What are you drawing?”, “A liger!”, “What is a liger?” “A cross between a lion and a tiger!”, Yeah, that was on the tip of my tongue! Napoleon as he drinks a glass a milk, “This tastes like the cow got into the onion patch!” and another glass, “This tastes like this has bleach in it!”ย  So grab some Popcorn, some soda, don’t think you want milk! Sit down and see what you think of this movie, you can reply in a couple days once your headache goes away.

Now to continue with my unbiased descriptions.

Next, is Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a much older movie than Napoleon. It has obviously stood the test of time. “What is the air speed velocity of a swallow?”, See the educational merit of the movie? Where else do you learn the air speed velocity of a swallow, something you know you always wanted to know.ย  And then there is the “Your arm is cut off!”, “No, it is just a flesh wound.” Look at the brave heroism that is shown in the story. They continue on even with aย  “flesh wound”.ย  Monty has politics in his movie too, but he doesn’t vote for Pedro, even if it is a cool name. They don’t vote at all. “ I am your King!”, “I didn’t vote for you!”, “You don’t vote for kings!” and sometimes people get a little confused in this movie, which happens in every day life , right? “Guards, see that the prisoner doesn’t leave this room until I come get him.”, “So not to leave the room, even if you come get him?”, “NO, Until I come to get him!”, “Until you come get him, we are not to enter the room?”, “No, No, No, you enter the room and keep him from leaving UNTIL i come get him!” Admit it you had to smile at those lines right? Trust me there are plenty more. Did you know that coconut halves beat together can make people think you are riding a horse? I told you it was educational ๐Ÿ™‚

There you have it, what do you say. Your opinion is valuable! There will be no hurt feelings ๐Ÿ™‚ And may the best win, for if not I will be sure to HEAR about it and may have to get my Tylenol ready to watch Nap….(Oops, remember this is a unbiased report) the next time we visit! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tuesday’s Thoughts!

Psalm 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah. (KJV): ย  I hope everyone had a great time of making memories, of love and laughter this past Thanksgiving!
