As might be suggested by the title, I am a young woman who has been reading Wild at Heart by John Eldredge. Over breakfast, the best meal of the day, I have just read the key to my last failed relationship.

I'm going to start off with some advice first though. Men, don't take your question to Eve. She will not thank you for it, and you will not find your answer. Let me explain.


Sometimes we have "October's"
Well Family,
Sometimes we have "October's" !!
Unlike September with it's many joy's October was full of some  sad days...
I love the coming of fall as it is such a joy to know the wonderful

Holiday season is arriving....
but his year my mind was on other things..
November has to be better..right?
Say  "Yes, of course it will!"

Stephen is haveing some pretty serious problems with his neck as a result of a car accident in May.
Pray for him to completely recover..
The good news about that is we found out what most of the trouble is.

Our Cockatiel Sammie died for no apparent reason, she was only 7..
We just have no idea what happened minute she was fine and then she was gone!!













 Then 4 days  later My sweet dog Jainie was hit by a car and suffered

a broken hip which she could have survived but her diaphram was ruptured and the vet said he did not think surgery would save her..
So very sad..I will miss her, she was a real sweetie!!
Her 3rd birthday was the 1st of Oct.

 And during all of this time I had a "bug" and felt terrible...
I am feeling much better today even if I don't sound like it to my family.(..cough..cough..)
My Sister told me "bugs" are two weeks coming and two weeks going..
She may be right!!

 Life is full of ups and downs and hills and valleys...
But no matter what we walk through our Lord is ever present and a constant source of comfort and strength.
Our refuge in the  dark places in our lives.


I love this Psalm...

Psa 27:1  The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Psa 27:2  When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon

me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

Psa 27:3  Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not

fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

Psa 27:4  One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek

after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my

life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

Psa 27:5  For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his

pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall

set me up upon a rock.

Psa 27:6  And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies

round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices

of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

Psa 27:7  Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also

upon me, and answer me.

Psa 27:8  When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee,

Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

Psa 27:9  Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in

anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O

God of my salvation.

Psa 27:10  When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD

will take me up.

Psa 27:11  Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path,

because of mine enemies.

Psa 27:12  Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for

false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out


Psa 27:13  I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness

of the LORD in the land of the living.

Psa 27:14  Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall

strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.



With all the joys (hopfully ) of Thanksgiving and the preparation for


It is an excting time and joyous time of the year!!

With our minds and our hearts set on the Lord we are flooded with

peace and joy!!


    We all fail at times, we all suck at times. But why do I feel I'm failing all the time, falling with no one to catch me?

    There's this God I believe in. He's pretty sweet, He loves me and stuff. But why is there this yearning to be number one? Not with Him, that's oh-so-silly; but what about with someone else? It cuts me up that I'm not number one to anyone, I'm not the best at anything, and it makes me sad because I have no scripture coming to me to help, I just have this blog to write in.

    It starts with this guy. And I'm happy to be talking to him, but even though there's this ocean seperating us, it doesn't make it more important, and I still feel like I'm taken for granted. You know, the "she'll always be there" kinda thing. I won't. Man, I wish he could see. 

    So it makes me think. I don't wanna be sad. It doesn't help me, nor does it help my readers for me to complain. So what do I do? Firstly, I have to remember a conversation with a dear brother who first told me that God loves ME. That's pretty sweet right there, that a God so awesome and powerful as ours could care about me, an insignificant little blip in the continuum of eternity. He sent me His son, and alright, I didn't actually see the guy, but He was also pretty amazing, and He loved me so much, he died for me. He knew me before I was made, and he died safe in the knowledge that because He died, when I got the chance to be born, He could bring me to His arms and hold me there close.

    See, I'm already starting to feel better. There is no one else that should matter to me other than my Lord Jesus Christ. Alright, this guy is kinda nice, but kinda versus AWESOME, SOVEREIGN, MAGNIFICENT! You get the picture. The guy I'm worrying over is also a little blip on the radar screen, and you know what. That's ok. I think sometimes a reminder that God loves us is what we need.

    Do you know He loves YOU? That awe-inspiring, all-powerful creator of all the heavens and the earth, and He loves YOU and wants communion with YOU? That He would send His only son, His most precious self to be humbled, humiliated and ultimately killed for His love for YOU? YOU are that worth it to Him. So remember next time you fail at something. Say that you're sorry you messed up. Lord, I'm sorry that I messed up and got my priorities mixed. Help us to keep those priorities straight Lord God, that we would focus on you and remember you in our troubles. We can always call on you, and ask you to lift our daily burdens, and for this we are truly thankful. We have so many opportunities in life, don't let us overlook them because our eyes are not focused on the one thing that matters Lord. Our relationship with You.


SmileNo, I really didn't fall off of the face of the earth..

My Son and Daughter-in-law had a new baby boy.Laughing
She was having some difficulty and was on bed rest so I had the privilege of watching Kiara for 3 weeks while waited and then while she recuperated from the birth..
What a wonderful time I had..
The Lord allowed me such a treat to be able to watch my little Granddaughter..
We danced and hoped and giggled and make bubbles and played in the swing and made lots of noise..
Funny how much fun grand kids own kids were not as much fun as they are..
Perhaps the responsibility has a sobering affect on you..
I don't know...

I hope I will be able to spend more time with her as after they hit 6 they change dramatically..
My favorite age for children is birth to 5....
Love the 2's...absolutely love to watch them with their joy of life and the wide eyed amazement of learning something new or just seeing a kitty outside the window...
God sure bundled a lot of love up into those small little bodies for us Grandparents to soak up and enjoy...
And to give out to - can't hug them enough.Kiss

 But that special time passed all to quickly and now I am home again and back to the norm..
I am cleaning out the closet and my dresser drawers..
Instead of spring cleaning I am doing fall cleaning..
It has been fun..I so love the season change and especially the wonderful cool weather..
Crunching brown leaves under foot and of course my least favorite part it cleaning out all of those soggy brown leaves from the "pond"...
No one cleaned the pond filter while I was away and the poor fish cannot see where they were going..
It will take a while for the water to become clear again probably...

Well, I am praising God for the past months privilege of being with my granddaughter and for the birth of a grandson and they sheer joy of it all....

 Praise Him for His marvelous kindness...
You all have a blessed day!! I plan on it!!Cool
