Beautiful Graceful Catherine

Lovely, lovely Catherine.  

I collected a dozen dresses from the oscars last night but i'm so disgusted by that farce that I would rather highlight someone who is serving others and looking amazing while doing it.  

Also.  I think you would like the movie Coda.  It was only on Apple TV which I know very few people have, but it is a story of a hearing girl in a deaf family.  

March is almost over and the robins have returned to Wisconsin.  Fresh seeds in the feeder for the birdies.

Love and prayers.

Oh boy.

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.”

~John Adams

I just read a few of John Adams' quotes.  My education on this man practically nil.  I think I have missed out.  
In homeschooling we call these gaps.

Off to learn.

You were made for greatness

“The world offers you comfort. But you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness.”

~Pope Benedict 

Oh to only have a tiny pinch of that strength.
Such an encouraging quote.

More and more I see how we are not meant for this world.  We are meant for another.

God bless those around us who are suffering great loss and fear and tragedy.
Lord hear our prayer.

Dashing into the New Year....2022


I wanted to share my Christmas card with you.  Since I, again, do not have a whole family photo, I had to find an old picture and do something creative. 

The fact that none of what has been happening in our world is a surprise to God gives me the greatest hope.  His promises are true.  He can not lie.  

The world and the devil are full of lies.  
Many times we can not find the truth any where we look and
those who speak the truth are persecuted.

But we must remember...
We really do have ALL the hope.  

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
Mathew 1:23

A most beautiful listen

Have you ever listened to the Bible on tape or phone or youTube?  I have not, but decided to find a source.
I tried an app and found it hard to work and thought maybe I'd like to listen to a woman's voice for some reason.  As I searched youtube I happened upon this gentleman.  I started listening and LOVE it.  What a glorious voice and beautiful reading.
His name is Sir David Suchet.  He is an actor.  I think he is Poirot.  I know he is born again.

But anyway, along with this reading of St. John Mr Suchet has read the whole Bible for audio.  Isn't that wonderful?  I think so!
You can find it all on youtube.

Encourage one another,

I have always heard that if someone has never read the Bible and is seeking, have them start with St. John
