Pet of the week, Henry

Henry is this week's pet. He is also a rescue pet. If you are familiar with the nature of rescue animals, you understand that they often come with a host of issues. Most owners opt for help and training for their pet as they begin to transition to their forever home.

At first glance, I thought Henry was a German Shepard. No... Henry is a different breed but very close to this breed.

Special thanks to Henry's owner for taking time to talk to me.
She was so gracious to allow me to take these pictures. Thanks!  
We met at the Bluegrass Farmer's Market.

Friendship Friday

"Listen, my friend! Your helplessness is your best prayer. It calls from your heart to the heart of God with greater effect than all your uttered pleas. He hears it from the very moment you are seized with helplessness, and becomes actively engaged at once in hearing and answering the prayer of your helplessness."

Everybody out of the pool!

I had barely entered the locker room when friends were coming in from the pool.  Water Fitness class has been delayed due to lightning.

 Once I  made the decision to come to an early morning class, it was disappointing to have the class postponed/cancelled. While it was disappointing, I am grateful for safety procedures that keep us safe.

On the left our instructor and
the right a student.
I love our class.
Class participants are all different ages, sizes,
and abilities. We share a goal... maintain or increase our fitness levels.

Gorgeous... don't you agree.
My friend is happily married and would love someone to enjoy this dress.

Tasty Tuesday

My friend has a talent for planning celebrations. She pays attention to every detail of an event with meticulous precision. Big budgets are not necessary when she has an event. She has a art of mixing homemade food with take home food to create an eclectic smorgasbord. Festive colors, candles, sparkle, great food, and music are the ingredients she mixes together for a fun event.  What is the most important ingredient?   Love!

Monday Musings

"This is a barbershop, not a hair salon.  We come in here not trying to impress anyone. It's a place just to talk, hang out with the fellows, talk about sports, women, and relationships."
Joe Davis
Last week I was able to sit quietly while
 my husband got his haircut.
Special thanks to 'Wig' who is an awesome barber.
 A few weeks ago, he came to the house to cut Jerry's hair.
'Wig' is in the above picture
cutting 'J's hair.

Many years ago, I  entered a barbershop for the first time. It was when my husband was away on a business trip.  It was my responsibility to take our elementary age son to a barbershop.  I know that the conversations were different because I was there with my son. 

Everyone needs a safe place where they can talk freely.

It is gift of God -

"As for you,  you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those you are disobedient. All of us also lived among the at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when were dead in transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. For are are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

Ephesians 2 : 1 - 10 ( NIV)
