We Haven't Blown Off The Map - Yet

Well, as I said, the 2nd day of exercise was a challenge! Today, I'm sore. Not as bad as I thought, but that hour yesterday was WORK! That 5# ball kept getting heavier & heavier by the time the hour was up. Good thing we get Wed. & Thurs. off before going back on Friday!

Today I washed clothes. It was so great to hang those sheets out. The wind is blowing today, but not as bad as yesterday. Below you can see the before (taken last evening before supper) and the after - today, of Superstition Mountain. It just plain disappeared in all the dust. Bill washed the truck yesterday & today I dusted it! The wind was so strong last night it tipped our little table over with the Cast Iron Grill on it right upside down. I tried the grill this morning & couldn't get it to work. Bill messed with it this afternoon, maybe it will work now. If not I guess we'll have to go shopping again.
No Mountain.................
Now it's back.....
Just a touch of home. As you can see it's all gravel, stone, dirt. There is no planting here & no weeding either!
I got this email from my special friend, Judy, today & I thought I'd share it in my post for the day. It was cute & says a lot! Well Judy, I played with this & cut & pasted & changed font sizes & it still does what it wants. So if there is something in large print, don't be offended, this crazy site sometimes does whatever it wants to.

The 7 Ups!

1. Wake Up !!

Decide to have a good day.
'This is the day the Lord hath made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.'
Psalms 118:24

2. Dress Up !!
The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.
A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
'The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.
Man looks at outward appearance,
but the Lord looks at the heart.'
I Samuel 16:7


3. Shut Up!!
Say nice things and learn to listen.
God gave us two ears and one mouth,
so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.

'He who guards his lips guards his soul.'
Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!
. . . for what you believe in.
Stand for something or you will fall for anything.
'Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time,
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good...'
Galatians 6:9-10

5. Look Up !!
. . to the Lord.
'I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me'.
Philippians 4:13

6. Reach Up !!
. . for something higher.
'Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not unto your own understanding.
In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.'
Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up !!
. . your Prayers.
'Do not worry about anything; instead
Philippians 4:6





If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring, and a sunrise every morning.

Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen.
He could live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart.
What about the Christmas gift He sent you in Bethlehem ;
not to mention that Friday at Calvary .

Face it, He's crazy about you.


I thought this was mighty special, just like YOU.
remember . ...
God answers Knee-Mail!
Wishing you a Blessed Day!!

We are just trying to keep warm on this sunny, cool day. Bill just went back down to check on the pool players & I'm drinking a Cherry Chocolate Latte. It's only 59 deg. outside, but suppose to be back up in the 80's in a couple of days. I can stand that. Did have to wear jeans & a sweatshirt today though. No sun bathing today.

Tomorrow I probably won't post anything so I just want to say "Happy Birthday Bob". We miss you & being Thursday, we could have played cards. Hope you have cake & company! Also, Happy Birthday to Bev.

So, until next time.............The Traveling Cardinal's
