Thirty-six post it notes, a purple ink pen and roses

Sometimes post it notes are a sweet substitute for a greeting card. Use the post it notes to be creative and express your feelings. Want to make it extra special? Use a purple ink pen. J

What would I write on 36 post it notes to mark our anniversary? I began by writing scriptures from Chapter 13 of I Corinthians. After writing the scriptures, I decided to write different milestones from our marriage.  Where we met, pre marital counseling, New Hope United Methodist Church, our wedding, the honeymoon, our first apartment, our first home, the birth of our children, travel, vacations, our life, our memories…

God has allowed life circumstances and challenges to shape us and develop us.  Our character has grown over the years.

God is faithful.

Monday Musings...marriage

"A good husband makes a good wife."
John Florio

Tomorrow we will celebrate 36 years of marriage.
It is not because we are good.... it is because we serve
a good and generous God.

We can rejoice

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they
help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character,
and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

Romans. 5:3 - 5

Move in day ...

Move in day at UK is quite an adventure. 

On campus this morning there were hundreds of students who were getting settled into their dorms.  What a sight …  students, moms, dads, grandparents, police officers, cars, luggage, carts, bikes, fans, shoes, more cars, plastic bins, ids, water bottles, golf carts, dogs, tables, elevators, resident advisors, students, hangers, laundry bags and so many lines of people. 

Looking at this sight, I could remember what it was like when we were the parents and we were moving our children into their dorms.

It was pleasant to have this experience  again... in a new way...

This week we were able to be short term host for two international students from Brazil ...
I enjoy serving/breakfast.

Beautiful Brazilian students
Their parents must be so proud of these intelligent, beautiful, and kind daughters.
On the right of this picture is one of the new dorms.

Pet of the week. Roxie

"Roxie is a Pit Bull rescue from Virginia.  She is five years old and weighs 65 pounds.  As a youngster she became highly agitated when she had to her nails trimmed, to the point that she was given a light sedative.
This summer when we took her to the vet and forewarned him, he took her to the lab table.  We heard the clip, clip, clip.  Returning, smiling, the vet said she had presented her paws with no incident.  She has grown up.
She and Buster spent their vacation time running and playing." Gail 

Special thanks to Frank for providing the picture. More thanks to my friend Gail for providing the text. 
The little dog on Gail's lap is Buster. Buster was a former pet of the week.

Make the most of every day!
