The Other Day

Recently my sibling and I made a trip to my parent's home where I discovered some 'priceless' treasures--well priceless in my eyes, and the eyes of our family. One find really surprised me at first though, and then didn't as I got to thinking of my great-grandfather and what one of his children had written about him--- "and it was while riding horseback in the pursuance of his church duties that he mastered the Hebrew and Greek languages..."; he would later go on to be a professor at a Christian college for many years.
This is what I found that day, and even though we're not 100% sure it was great-grandpa's (because his name doesn't appear to be in it); he would be the most logical choice for having been the one who owned it originally.

I like the section where there are proverb-like sayings, and I am very excited because my father said that the book can come home with me for awhile :)

I am excited about that!

The book is almost 134 years old (Tamuz 5636 would equate to June/July 1876 from what we could determine on the Internet).

Hum, wonder what other old books are hiding in the corners of my parents' home...?

What am I?

This time you get two photos to help you figure out my 'secret' identity, and of course some clues, as always, to help you ...and because I am in a really generous mood right now, having seen a private dance performance of our neighborhood birds today, they will be GOOD clues...maybe:)
  • I am in Aimee's wildflower-style garden, even though I am not listed on any of the PNW wildflower garden seed packets she has bought.
  • I used to look differently.

Well that's probably enough hints for any gardeners out there so -- as per usual -- here's a link if you just HAVE to know who I am right now :)

Blessings, Aimee

What am I?

Actually, technically and of course grammatically, the question should be 'what are we?' but I'll let all that slide tonight and give you the following hints:
  • Aimee thinks we look sort of like cute, little, kind of funny-looking whisk brooms
  • Aimee had never seen us - like this - till this year, but she has always -- well at least for a long time -- loved us.
  • You don't eat us, but can sometimes buy us at a store.
  • If you want to see us at our best you must do something to us first and then wait about 2 weeks.
  • Aimee likes one variety of us the best, but we are available in more then one variety.
Now for those who have no clue and curiosity is just 'killing' them, please feel free to see this link :)

The Word on Wednesday

"Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities… For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us." Psalms 103:1-3a,11,12 KJV

Blessings, Aimee

We have lots of babies right now.
Not the cute, cuddly ones all grandmas and grandpas adore--nope, not that kind.
And not the cute, little chicks, ducklings, horses, goats, puppies, lambs and birds that catch my eye whenever I am blessed to see any of them...
Nope, none of these--
No--the babies I am talking about are still special though because they are all miracles of life--and this time of year is also very special because of them!
Come to think of it--even though these babies aren't cuddly, they are definitely still cute--because all babies are, even garden babies :)
So here in their 2010 debut--some of our babies...
Baby Anne raspberry
Baby Desert King figs
Baby Glacier tomato

And last, but not least, a baby strawberry--photo taken in late April.
Ah! You gotta love these garden babies-I know I do:)
Any babies around your place?

For My Children

On this Mother's Day of 2010, I cannot help but reflect on just how thankful I am to have been given the gift of you--my 3 children; each one a unique present from the Creator above. So on this day, and all the days to follow, I wish you joy, peace, love and never-ending blessings! You are all priceless gifts to me---arrows in my quiver; flowers in my garden & some very sweet memories! I thank God for each and every one of you (and that includes my wonderful DIL, SIL and grandchildren too)!

Love always,

Happy Mother's Day

To all moms out there in cyberspace...
my wish is that you would know love, joy & peace on this special day...
and everyday -
Happy Mother's Day!
And for all Military Moms--a special blessing going out to you on this day.
