Winds of Change

Sometimes you can just feel that God is moving you in a different direction and that you need to be considering doing other things. The statement “you can’t keep doing the same thing and expect to get different results” is so very true.

Sometimes God moves people in and out of your life – forcing you to make some changes that you need to make.This week, my beautiful daughter-in-law graduated and moved to be with her husband full-time! I’m so happy for them but it sure will be quiet around my home for now.
Winds of change often create “music of a different tune” – not bad – just different than we are used to. And the best thing is that God is behind it all and has a plan and a purpose in it.
Speaking of winds – Click here to check out these cool wind music instruments made of plastic bottles. You can even LISTEN to the sounds they make on this site! Do you think I’d drive my neighbors crazy if they emit an eerie sound on a windy night? The good thing about getting older and not hearing so well anymore is that they won’t be bothering me :-)

Not ALL Visitors are Welcome!

 Sometimes visitors drop by and we are so excited to see them.

Today I went thru a stroll of my vegetable garden and look who else came to visit…..
Little Lady Bug on my dill plant

But then I noticed I’d had other visitors that were NOT invited nor welcome ..

Something stripped the leaves off my tomato plant branches!
They didn’t stay around to visit – just took what they wanted and left.
Isn't there enough to share so I shouldn't care if they wanted what is mine?
That may be true of people – the Bible says “"She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy." Proverbs 31:20

But does it apply to gardens?

Over the top!

Oh My! I've found myself making a file folder (on Pinterest, of course) of things I want to make or do with my grandchildren one day.
Today I found a website at that shows how to make Cinco de Mayo cookies

Who wouldn't love these!!

Next year (it might take me a year to make them!) I'll be ready to WOW my little granddaughter (and probably my whole family and myself as well!)

What "OVER THE TOP" things have you done for your grandkids?
