I only met his Grandmother Glasgow 1 or 2 times.  His Grandmother Wall, I had the opportunity to know some better.  I really did like her!  I suream glad I did have the privilege of knowing her.  I wish I had had more time with his Grandmother Glasgow.

I Invert!

I remember the summer before my junior year.  I stayed a week or so with my dad's sister, Aunt Pet (Mary Dayton Holloway) and Ernie in Midland, Texas. I'm sure my parents did it to keep me out of trouble.  LOL 

I had more fun.  I listened to their record collection, old groups from the 40s and that sound.  Went to the beauty shop with Aunt Pet and she took me shopping.  I tasted my first alcohol there.  My parent's would have died if they had know this.  They actually talked about the importance of drinking responsibly.  The only drink I remember was a Salty Dog.  I do not enjoy the taste of any least anything I have ever tried.  I just laugh thinking about them doing this.  I wonder if they did it with their daughter???

During my time there I got to get on a "machine" in the spare room.  I did not know what it was, but you leaned back on it.  I remember thinking it felt wonderful.  After the fact I found out it was an early inversion table. 

I have many back and neck issues.  Lately the pain was really getting on my last nerve!!!  So, I invert again only on our own machine. 

We got it today & I got it all put together.  We bought a massage accessory that fits the length of the table, too.  I have been on it three times and I honestly think it is helping.  It is so relaxing to me to hang upside down.  I have known it ever since that first time over 40 years ago!


Fresh Find: the new Kindle Fire.



Chrissa asked our Miss "A" what she wanted to be for Halloween.  She could pick anything she wanted.  She chose Olivia.

At her dance class last evening they got to wear their costumes...



Miss "D" will be a little piggy, too.  She is excited!!!


Fresh Find:  Acorns are falling from our Oak Trees. I like this one better!


Penny Loafers...

I always wanted a pair of charcoal gray felt penny loafers.  My mother said no.  Her reason was that they just flap up and down.

Penny loafers, well loafers in general, are a must have for this season.  I found this black one that I like.  It isn't felted though.  I wonder if I'll ever get those shoes?  LOL



Fresh Find: I love these vintage flashlights!!! Small, medium, and large.


Just the Hem of His Garment...

Matthew 9:20-22  “And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour.”


Matthew 14:36  "and begged Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched it were made perfectly well."


Sunday while sitting in our worship time at FBC-PLV I was reminded of the awesome talents and gifts that others are blessed with.  I was created with very little that will ever be very much.  Don't get me wrong, I stand firm in all that I know God has given me to use to serve him.  But lets be honest, I'm not the best at anything, not even very good at most things, yet I can appreciate best and good when I see it.  I'm good at that! ;o)

We were hearing about the crowns that believers will get in heaven.

1 Peter 5:2-7  "Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away. Submit to God, Resist the Devil. Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “ God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.


Revelation 3:11  Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.


So, it got me to thinking...

I'm no one special.  I'll never be grand in what I can do, but if I can just touch the hem of His garment, my life will have served HIS purpose.  It is in the little things I can do, however good or not good, and my heart-place when doing them that matters to him.

Just the hem of his garment...



I've Touched the Hem of His Garment by George F. Root

In faith she touched the hem of His garment
As to His side she stole,
Amid the crowd that gathered around Him,
And straightway she was whole.

I’ve touched the hem of His garment,
And now I, too, am free;
His healing pow’r this very hour
Gives life and health to me.

She came with fear and trembling before Him—
She knew her Lord had come;
She felt that from Him virtue had healed her,
The mighty deed was done.

He turned with, “Daughter, be of good comfort,
Thy faith hath made thee whole,”
And peace which passeth all understanding
With gladness filled her soul.



Our girls...

A Saturday...

I've had a relaxing Saturday of ready and enjoying a most amazing fall day.

Our Oak Trees have produced gazillions of acorns this year, mostly tinier than normal ones.  We were told it was their way of dealing with the drought.  The squirrels have enjoyed them no matter what size.  Makes walking in the grass barefoot pretty painful!  Pretty though.

We do still need rain.  I'm expecting some soon for our neighborhood :O)
