News Flash?

According to the news on the Internet today, Michael Landon was a father at 12 years old. Seems his eldest son was found dead at the age of 60. Michael died in 1991 at the age of 54. Granted, my mathematical skills are not so great....but! I suppose it was either a misprint or an adoption. Either way, my sincere condolences to the Landon family.

There is not a cloud in the sky here in my little corner of Alabama. It's not expected to stay this way, and the drought is definitely over! It's the other end of the spectrum now, we are having flooding issues in some places. The weatherman says my day will be mostly cloudy today, with a chance of rain later this afternoon. In other words, the local forecast is: Rain, Forever.

I have been absent from Blogger for so long that when I came back to make an entry, it made me realize how much I miss AOL J-Land. The journals were so much easier to deal with than Blogs. Yes, I know they are the same thing, but the programs are not.

I am at work, so I better act like I'm here for something other than blogging.

Later, Sweet Taters

Ropes are for Hanging

When you get to the end of your rope,
Here are the Knots to hang on to:…

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet Knot crushed;
We are perplexed, but Knot in despair;
Persecuted, but Knot forsaken;
Struck down, but Knot destroyed
—II Corinthians 4:8-9

It is Thankful Thursday
...and I am thankful…

For the rain! The drought has officially ended.
For God’s vast patience, countless (and sure) mercies, and boundless grace.
For people who like me.
For the protection and blessings of my family, whom I dearly love.
For my sisters.
For my sisters who weren’t born my sisters.
For my job…I am truly blessed in this area.
For Freedom.
