Weekend Prayer Warriors


Noelle sent this photo to me. It was two years ago this month at Brittany's baby shower for Brody. My sons, Nick and Jeremy. I love finding photos.

Nick's first CHRISTmas 1993. Auntie Ang made our stockings. She hand cut and created each piece and added hand sewn sequins too. She had arthritis and yet she sewed and made crafts so beautifully. I sure miss her. I love the afghan in the background. Still some of my favorite things. I do not have the talent but admire those who do. I suppose I could cruise the thrift stores and find aprons and afghans. I have a cute apron I found years ago in a thrift store. Someone had embroidered  on it and it is very nicely made. I just wish I had some of my mom's aprons. Her cookbooks too. Such wonderful memories.

Jeremy, Noelle and Santa 1985. My goodness the memories flood my mind.

Mark 10:14

The Year 2020 In Review  The Year 2021 Starting Anew

1. The dumbest thing I bought was a 2020 planner.
     Sounds silly I Know, but a friend Marsha had an idea from another friend. In her 2021 planner
     she is going to write a Scripture verse on the first day of each week totaling 52 Scriptures
     written in her planner. I am going to try this so if you have a favorite Scripture share it here.
      I will write your name next to the scripture.

2. I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm. He asked me what I was wearing.
    2021: I told him a LuLaRoe Hazel (soft and comfy) in a snakeprint and a pair of LuLaRoe jeans.

3. 2019: Stay away from negative people. 2020: Stay away from positive people.
     2021: Stay away from people who trust themselves more than they trust God.

4. The world has turned upside down. Old folks are sneaking out of their house and their
     kids are yelling at them to stay inside.
     2021: Stay safe but use common sense. don't go with the crowd. It is always a bad idea.

5. This morning I saw my neighbor talking to her dog. It was obvious she thought he understood
     I came into the house and told my cat. We laughed and laughed.
     2021: Trust me both the cat and the dogs understand what we are saying to them! I think
      most of them are smarter then the average person in charge of making rules & regulations.

6. Every few days, try on your jeans. PJ's will have you believing all is well.
    2021: I am at an age where if I want to be in my PJ's all day long I wear them. Most days
    I like to get dressed because I am blessed to have lots of nice clothes and I get great joy
    by pairing things up to make an outfit.

7. Does anyone know if we can take showers yet? Or are we still just washing our hands?
    2021: The old saying Stupid is as stupid does! Ha Ha! But that's why there are labels
     on some many products, like eye drops. They literally say, do not eat/ingest, may be
      harmful to your health. My favorite is hemorroid oinment, do not eat ! Someone told me
       to dab a tiny amount on the outer edge of eyes to reduce wrinkles.Trust me ,she said her eyes                   shrunk to tiny slits! Seriously! Might of been Oprah or some other celeb giving bad advice.

8. The virus has done what no woman was ever able to do. cancel sports, shut down bars and 
     keep all men at home.
     Truthfully in my state, the young ones can't stay out of the bars so they seem to be thriving.
      Have you ever wondered why alcohol is promoted as glamourous on TV commercials? It
       actual is responsible for more divorce, car accidents along with legalized drug use, simple
       an extremely irresponsible move on whoever those geniuses were that decided that was a
        great idea!

9. I never thought the expression, "I wouldn't touch him/her with a six foot pole " would become
     a national policy, but yet, here we are!
     I am the nicest person but in public places I am grateful that people have to keep their distance.
     I have been in the grocery store, pre 2020 and have had people standing up close and personal.
     Not my cup of tea!

10. I Need to practice social distancing from the refrigerator.
      Truthfully, that was a bigger issue for me when I lost my job going on 7 years ago.
       I eat more smaller meals than large ones, so I don't have a huge problem.

I am going to post the other half of these at my other blog.

If people don't have some humor in their life, I feel sad for them. Humor makes us stronger, healthier,
happier and people will always wonder what in the world you are up to with a perpetual smile on your face. 

Tarrah and Baby Ella are getting along well. We keep praying, asking for prayer and waiting for the days when both of them will be welcomed home with their sweet husband/daddy and sons/brothers.

Shea Shea is her daddy's girl. In case you need a smile, here is one to make you smile.

Humor is always the best medicine, grin. Have a beautiful day friend.

Those questions and answers were lot of fun! We're still sending prayer to Tarrah and Baby Ella.

These are hilarious, and really brightened up my day! Your photos are real family keepsakes.

LOVE your responses, and you look so pretty in your LuLa Roe. That's so funny about the Hemmoroid cream. I may have to try that on my cheek creases and laugh lines. If nothing else, I won't be opening my mouth to eat so often. LOL.

Heeheehee! What a fun and funny post, thank you. Prayers are ongoing for your family.

Great funnies. I wear my pj's all the time when I am home. I will admit I was thrilled that baseball had a short season, they usually play so many games. :)
Sweet photos of your family. XO

Thanks for the laughs this morning.
