Wimmie's Musings

YEA!!!     It is a little warmer today.  Would you believe a lot warmer?    It was 25 last night and already 59 today.   That almost sounds like we could go out and play in shirt sleeves!   Well if we were young enough to play.  Maybe we could at least watch the younger ones play.
Anyway, I'm just glad it is warmer and hope that was our winter.  We don't usually have more than that, but seems like this year may be really different as it has surely started out different.  Sometimes we can eat Christmas dinner out side on the picnic table, but would have frozen to death if we had tried that this year.   Maybe there will be lots of warmer ones before we have another one like this.  Most years we don't really get cold until middle of Jan or 1st of Feb.  It beat itself this time.
PhotobucketGreat to have this nice sunshiney day anyway.  Thank you LORD!

Here is something to remind us of warmer times

Musings by Wimmie

Well I'm not sure how long since I was here and sometimes not even sure where I've been since I was here.   Between this blasted cold air and all that needs to be done and all that demands to be done and the occasional...sorry the all too often power outage that seems to be the norm nowadays...maybe it really doesn't really matter where I've been only that I'm back here now and know that I am!!!!
   East Texas uaually treats us better than this with the weather.  Of course it is way too hot in the summer, but I can surely stand to be too hot more than I can stand to be too cold.   Its not only stressful just being too cold, but then if you turn the heat up so you can be warm enough then you are stressed out about how you are going to pay the electric bill or the gas bill or both.  They (whoever they are) say that stress will kill you and I'm on the verge of believing them.  There  is always something to worry about.  Not that I worry!  Maybe if I did I wouldn't feel so stressed.
I really need to study the Bible more, pray more, lose weight, exercise more,  work more to make more money,  get rid of more clutter and on and on and on!   So I think I'll go find something to eat while think on all this.
Seriously, I just hope each night as I pray and go to sleep that when I wake I'll know where I am and will be able to get out of bed and just do the things I need to do to take care of myself and whatever else comes my way that I need to do.
You know that God didn't promise us a tomorrow unless we believe in Him and accept Him as our Savior.
PhotobucketI have done this so I really don't have to worry at all.  Just keep my faith and trust in Him and He will do the rest.

I want and need to lose some pounds.  I want and need to do more Bible Study!  I want and need to do more crafts to sell.  I want and need to Pray more.  I want and need to do more house repair.  I want and need to do more house cleaning.  I want and need to give more of my stuff to someone who needs it as I surely have more than I need!!!! God always blesses me with more than a full measure and I let Him down so miserably.  He promises us so many things if we just grab hold of His hand and let Him lead us.  One of these promises is in Philippians 4:13  I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
If I didn't know in my heart that He means every word of the Bible (HIS HOLY WORD),I would never make it through 1 day much less so many more...I hope!

Just couldn't resist 1 more picture of these 2 cute babies.


Dog and Baby deer...Had to share this. They are at my step daughters house. Don't get to see things like this often!


Returning "Green" Blogger!!!!

Finally I feel that I MADE IT !!  I thought I would never get over the full blown case of bronchitis I got 2 weeks prior to Christmas.  I'm still coughing a little, but nothing like the first 2 or 3 weeks.
I'm really interested in writing and sharing on this blog.  I'll get in the routine and it will happen even when I'm sick or really busy doing other things.  I have lots of crafts, recipes and " growing up"  stories I want to share with all of you.
I trust that you all  had a Great Christmas and will have a Wonderful New Year. 
There are so many things I would like to get done and places I would like to go this year.
I have a large family and some of them come to my home every spring to go crappie fishing in the great Sam Rayburn lake here in East Texas.  We've caught lots of great fish over the years.  They are really good eatin too.
I want to remind you again that I have an avon business and want you to know you are welcome to visit and shop my website anytime day or night.  I would love to be your avon  calling person.  There are lots of things on sale right now.  I've been using the Gold Emulsion Night cream and really like it.  The new " Skin So Soft" products are great also.
