Animal Antics & A Note

Dawn @ Guiding Light Homeschool suggested I add the hounds (dogs) jumping over the fence from yesterday's post to her Animal Antics meme.  I didn't want to list just the hounds, after just blogging it, I am offering up this little "ditty."

Please visit Dawn and link up to Animal Antics!

I am trying to put some "things" aside, so I can do a Thirty Days of Gratitude isn't a good day, but that will change.  I am a child of the KING of kings, the LORD of lords, God will grant me peace in all situations.

I am concerned for a friend that is going through all kinds of difficulties with two of her grown children.  She is also raising a granddaughter and there are some medical issues they are trying to get to the bottom of.  If you would, please lift "Bren" in prayer today.

Also, the Senate voted for "Cloture" on Senate Bill 510 late last night.  I feel this is a terrible bill and we need to let our senators know.  The vote last night was not good.  Please pray that nothing outside of God's will would be accomplished in our legislative branch and that the blinded eyes of our congress would be opened.

In the meantime, go by and read the latest posts in the Thirty Day Gratitude Challenge!  They will make your heart soar!  Just click on the button.

(I'm back.  This is the edited addition.)

Today, (Day # 18), I am thankful for the friends I have made through blogging!  We are from different spots around the globe, we have a variety of interests, some have big families, and some are empty-nesters.
There are those of us who live in the country and there are those who live in big cities, some are SAHMs and some are out there pursuing careers,
we are FRIENDS

A confession for today ~ 

Our GOD is an Awesome GOD!



  1. Praying for the things you mentioned sweet sister. Praying for the eyes of Congress to be Opened to the TRUTHS & while we are at it their hearts to be touched for the truth also........May GOD's will be accomplished for he is HOLY and His Righteousness endures forever.

    Covering your friend, her children & especially little Bren in prayer. May God's hand be upon them and His healing touch them right now, He is the healer...I know that quite well! He is my everything & I praise Him & thank HIM for hearing our prayers.

    I thank my God for you Cheryl, a sweet friend who PRAYS for the needs of others. I ask God to bless you today. I ask Him to touch your life in a very special way and hear your hearts deepest cry. Love to you & thank you for being a willing vessel. <3 you bless me so much.

    love, terry

  2. Just stopped by to visit. Praying with you today...

  3. It's hard when we see all of these things going on around us to remember that through it all God is in control. We need to be vigilant and make sure that we are doing our part, but ultimately, it's not in our control. May the Lord's perfect will be done instead of man's corrupted plan...

  4. +Hi Cheryl, So glad we're found to each other:-)

    Also re: the Redbird, my daughter Shari has been buying pieces of stained glass for Christmas and the theme is the Cardinal so how appropriate!

    I love the 30 Days of Gratitude concept. Is it a meme going around? You know I've been so out of the loop for some time now.

    Will say a prayer for your friend right now and these issues and challenges we all experience are so tough when we're going through them but they too are blessings as they give us greater opportunity to draw closer to God. Hugs, Mollye
