things that keep me occupied ...










a return to winter ... the cold and wind ... have taken the springtime snap out of my step!

but there is always a silver lining ... i got a late birthday present in the mail - a parallel bible, which will hopefully shed more light on my walk ...

then yesterday i thought i would lighten up my appearance too - with some highlights ...


just some of the things occupying my world this week ...

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

Dear Saija...What a treasure!
A parallel Bible! They are so good!

And your hair looks alright too. It is getting nice and long.
Won't you look nice this Easter Sunday at church!!...Love Terry

PS.. we are having had a return to winter too Saija!!

Yep, winter is returning here after our 80 plus degrees days...going to be below freezing tomorrow night and a few other nights too...and it hardly reached that the whole winter...go figure. It looks like you are keeping yourself well occupied, and what better ways to do so!

Terry said...

Oh Saija...I was just going to say good morning to you and I am so glad I came!!
Is that the Fearless Feline that you are holing in your arms in your profile picture and did Leo take the picture?
Tha kitty is almost as cute as Jenaette's Snug..Oh so cute!!...Love Terry

Morning Saija! I'm just over to see you (and I really get too..smile. love your hair...highlights in blondes are so very pretty!) well, I came by to tell you how blessed I was to read the comment you left me. Your sweetness touched my heart...Every so often...the Lord burdens my heart for those who come surfing by and are lost...terribly lost..just like we USED to be, and probably don't even realize. I know you know just what I mean...*hugs*. ~~I went out and covered our now blooming tulips last night after prayer meeting. And, yes, we got a good dusting of snow. When we came out of our little church on the mountain...it was snowing! Shock...grin. Well, I'm off to post my Wednesday Stamper challenge. I LOVE participating in that...its so gratifying to make something pretty, not that every week is a success....but when it is...I'm singing like a bird..=). I have a question for you...why does yahoo make us type our username & password so much? Am I missing some know-how somehow?

terry ... the bible was a gift from my hubby ... i think it may even be a be-lated Christmas present! i am looking forward to starting a NT book, to see what i can learn! blessings on you ...

elizabeth ... sounds like all my blog buds (well northern & central) are getting a last winter blast! the sun is out - but it is still cold! blessings on your Good friday!

jel ... thank you ... i really LOVED your cloud pics ... they were awesome ... Happy Easter to you!

terry ... that is indeed our fearless feline, and leo was the photographer ... :o) .... i was dancing around the kitchen with our poor kitty, who didn't seem to be in synch with me that day! *grin*

cptnwow ... why thank you ! hope all is well in your world ... i tried to visit last night but your blog wasn't cooperating & letting me in ... sigh ... wishing you a Happy Easter!

maggie ann ... you make even your snowstorm sound comfy cozy ... giving thanks in all things, eh! and yes - i am so thankful to be IN CHRIST ... to know forgiveness for my sins ... where in the world would i (we) be without Him? ... and re yahoo - maybe it is for security reasons? or so i'm thinking ... Happy Easter to ya!

tina ... why thank you ... may you have a joyful Easter!

Pat said...

It's going way below freezing here in Michigan tonight too - brrrr.
I also have a parallel bible - their a great study aid. Sometimes I feel like we just can read enough of Gods word - we don't want to miss a single translation!
Love your hair - nothing like blonde on blonde - my favorite look!
Try to stay warm!

Debra said...

Love the highlights! And we had snow here, too.... bah.....!Oh well, someday Spring will decide to stay and we'll just appreciate it more, right? :) Thanks for your email about our move! I'm looking forward to it and am already determining not to complain or worry about a thing. If this is God's idea (like we think it is) I'm gonna let *Him* do all the worrying about the details! Heh... :) Blessings, Debra
