Crosses of Sacrifice and Courage   Remind Us of The Heavy Cost of Liberty

Crosses of Sacrifice and Courage Remind Us of The Heavy Cost of Liberty

Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it. ”

― Pete Hegseth

Hobson’s Choice and Circle of Life

I haven’t been on to post a real post in some time now. I want to thank my followers for their kindness.

Firstly, this is mainly due to the awful new upgrades WP has implemented with the dashboard changes. I get extremely frustrated trying to work with the posting tools and so on.

GEE THANKS, WordPress.  PERHAPS THE NEXT UPGRADE SHOULD INCLUDE USER-FRIENDLY    TOOLS OR INSTRUCTIONS...?

TOOLS OR INSTRUCTIONS…?

I like it when I can easily come in and put a post together without hunting the globe trying to find the controls I have been familiar with. So I gave up in a way…not to worry, though…when my patience returns, I will return in a little more regular posting.

ANGEL OF PATIENCE

ANGEL OF PATIENCE, WHERE ART THOU?

Too many changes at once.

Then, more recently, a personal problem, which concerns the caregiving needs of my ailing mother has developed.

One day I woke up and discovered (several years ago, actually, when Dad died) that I went from being a parent’s child to being the parent’s parent.

It is a sad time,  wrought with hard choices and limited options from which to base choices.

Sometimes I wish I could be 5 again…

Sheldon Takes OnThe Woodpile

Hehe…when Mommy isn’t around I like to be a bad boy!

Huh? What, Mommy? Oh, the wind blew me here! One minute I was minding my business like a good boy…the next thing I knew, I landed here!

Hi everybody…we wanted to give the floor to Sheldon, our desert tortoise, today. He woke up from his long winter’s nap rather early this year. He was up in early March…usually he doesn’t come alive until about mid-May or early June. He is healthy and back to his normal, toddler-like self..getting into places he thinks will avail an escape.

IMG_0734

Who’s a trouble-making toddler? Surely, not I! I am a sweet and innocent a guy as you’ll EVER meet. Really.

He doesn’t like fences. The bigger area we give him to roam, the more area he seems to want. Please enjoy our very own home video taken a year or so ago of his typical exploits. This was a wood-pile incident we think you’ll like and laugh at as you watch…

(Please forgive our shaky start on the clip…we aren’t well-versed with the video camera maneuvering…it DOES straighten out pretty quickly, however. Turn up the sound to hear the play-by-play dialogue!)

😛

Thanks for coming by all!

CJ and Mousie and Sheldon, too!

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
