Beautiful Wonders of the World

The Wonders of the World
I am grateful for all the wonders of the world….big beautiful ones and the little small ones too. I stand in awe at God’s great beauty, which He masterfully created….from vast beautiful mountains covered in snow to tiny little newborn babies. I wonder in my own mind how all of this was created so perfect and wonderful…then I realize that it could only be done by the great master artist Himself.
“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn whatever state I am in, therein to be content.” ~Helen Keller

Christmas is only a month away! And tomorrow is Thanksgiving!! YaY!

What am I doing today? Well I’ve already made another trip to Wally World……or should I say Wild and Wacky World ……OMGosh…I can’t believe that I forgot so much!! Crazy! But I’ve gotten it over with because I was up early this morning. I was startled by a phone call at 3:13 am this morning. “Hey mama…what you doing?” Now, may I remind you that it was 3:13 A. M…..morning!……So I answered in that dumb answer way…..”Sleeping…what did you think I was doing? Holly what’s wrong, where are you?” And she replied with a giggle, “At the back door, come let us in!” “What?”
They had driven all the way through the night *without telling us* from Louisiana! Surprise!! And what a great one it was! We were not expecting them until later in the afternoon. After a full cooked breakfast by Jackie they crawled into bed and slept. I lay back down for a little while with a smile on my face…..
More cooking for us today…putting on the final touches and last minute details. Jackie and Richard will go deer hunting for a while this afternoon. Holly and I…well who knows!
Have a happy day everyone!

I like this one too:
