Mixing It Up!

I am going to share some favorite pink for Beverly and the Pink gang! Make sure you visit! It is fun to check out what everyone loves!

A pink cake for a special occasion! I have one of those milestone birthdays to contend with this December! Will someone please send this cake my way?

Make sure to visit today!
Even I can be this crafty! Such a simple and sweet arrangement of pretty blue hydrangeas set in Ball jars! Simply darling for a baby boy shower or even a bridal shower where the bride loves blue! Come join Sally and all the Blue Crew for a fun Monday filled with your favorite blues!
Isn't this just a cool blue book? I wonder what the title is? That feather is a sweet touch.
We travel to Kansas where Nick attends college. I often give my honey a hand squeeze because he drives us all the way, a whole nine hours! I want to make sure he stays wide awake and with the help of large iced coffee from McDonald's he does a wonderful job! He will squeeze my hand when we travel by plane! I hate watching all the passengers board as I tend to get claustrophobic! Soo he always eases my tension by squeezing my hand! I hope you stop by Marydon's nd share your favorite Love is....
I thought this verse would fit into my share with Charlotte and all the encouraging folks at the wonderful meme of Spiritual Sunday! I like this verse because it reminds me to keep my language pure and in today's world Yikes! Often I will hear young people cursing up a storm! I have always admitted it I struggle with this! It is so easy to get angry and spew inappropriate words! Words that you can never take back! So I pray about this a lot! My parents were excellent role models and never uttered "bad" language! Never, not once in my life can I recall them using curse words! As a young woman I worked for a CPA. He was a grumpy ole cowboy and he could spew bad words like you say Good Morning to someone! I accept my short comings about language but others don't! They think it is just part of life. In today's world it is difficult not to lose ones temper!
The bible is correct to remind us that we need to trust the Lord and not men! I think Mark Twain was right when he said:
It is always hard to live by the Golden Rule. It is difficult to take people as they are. We have to continue to trust the Lord and pray. He will see us through any difficult situation. He is always there for us. I hope you will visit Charlotte and the other folks who share their faith. Have a beautiful week.

Dear Anne
My husband is also always the driver no matter how long the journey for his nerves will never survive being a passenger with me as the driver! Take note, please, that I am actually a good driver. That cake looks divine and I would love a big slice myself!

Anne, you do an excellent job on combining your inspiring words and photos together. Glad you and family are doing okay. Doubt doubt you have visited Pinterest.

I could BAKE a birthday cake, but I must take after my mother as we don't seem to decorate them. My cousin and I shared a birthday and my aunt always had fabulous decorations on his cake. But I'm sure mine tasted better!! I'm only guessing, but one must prefer mother's cooking, right?!

I agree on poor language. I always explained to my students that smart people don't use those words and can always think of a better way to express themselves. Enjoy your week.♥♫

Hi Anne

Your post was packed with a lot of wisdom this weekend! I also enjoyed reading about your son, Jeremy, in the prior post.

I hope you get this special cake for your milestone birthday!

Beautiful pinks.

Denise said...

Love the pictures and verses/quote~pink is also a favorite of mine! It is certainly difficult to tame our tongue sometimes, and instead make it a tool for a blessing! We should deliver words fitly spoken and seasoned with grace. :)

I like your blue; hydrangeas are one of my favorites and the blue jars really "make" it a lovely display.

Happy Blue Monday, Anne.

Karen said...

Wonderful! Hope you enjoyed your time with your son. I have a son in K.C.

This is my first time to visit your blog. Since I joined Face Book I find that I don't spend as much time on my blog or visiting others as I have in the past. You have an interesting, uplifting blog. Keep writing and posting!

It's that time again isn't it for school to begin, do drive safe. The blue book cover is pretty, I collect vintage books and this is a nice one. Every year Papa takes our grands to buy their school supplies-a tradition we started about 6 years ago, just did this and they start Aug 12-we had one last hurrah at the lake last week.
Check out my post of lake shots.

Oh, that cakes looks so beautiful. I wonder if it tasted as good as it looked.

My husband always does the driving when we travel long distances, too. I'm grateful because it leaves time for me to read and read. :-)

I appreciate you sharing those scriptures and your temptation to use bad words. We all have weak spots and when we share our struggles, we also encourage each other to lean on the Lord to overcome them. So thank you.

The feather on your blue book looks so mysterious ... am sure many noteworthy things are penned in there:)
