My Strength comes from...

"The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever."


Psal...m 28:7-9

My daughter's nail polish

As Father's Day fastly approached,
a card needed to be bought for
my grandfather.

Since my Daddy is no longer here
on earth with me, I still try to remind
the men in my life how special they are to me.

This past Friday was opening day for
Toy Story 3
yes you read it right
Toy Story 3
I promised my youngest daughter
for weeks a trip to the movies.
She invited her aunt, which is my sister,
to watch it with us.

But before we could go, I had to make
a stop at the local Dollar General to by
Paw-Paw, my grandfather, a card. So into
the store we went, the first card I picked up
was perfect. I asked my oldest daughter to
read it, getting her approval. As we made our
way to the check-out counter, my youngest daughter
started the "can I get" which lead to my oldest "can I get."


Are you kidding me, I just went over with them getting out
of the car, "there will be no buying anything extra, only the card."

Turning my head firmly around, I continued to the check-out,
hearing a ladies voice,

"you must have gotten into your daughters nail polish"

Graciously I turned my head toward the voice, smiling,
I told her, "yes mam, my mother just asked me the other
day, what my husband thinks of my wild nail polish."

I wasn't saying yes mam because I really had gotten into
my daughters nail polish, but rather I understood where she
was coming from. We paid and left.

Making our way down the sidewalk we stopped
at the post office, I needed a book of stamps. We mail
the card along with mailing another card for my neighbor,
who just lost her husband a few weeks ago. I learned along
time ago, it's never to late to send a card. Her husband suffered
from a heart attack, "unexpected" as someone said.

Off to the movies, we saw Laurie Smith, the home designer, from TLC Trading Spaces
in line with her children.

Toy Story 3 was awesome!

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Dad's out there!
