Jesus is the rose in my life.without him my life would stink.but his perfume covers the stink of my sin,s and his blood washes me one is perfect but the Lord.we only do the best we can with his help.people who don,t understand us, who don,t know the love we have found in him, are missing so much.people who look for that love in people are let down.only Jesus is able to love us the way we rose stood out for all to rose rose of lovely perfume.lovely o the eye to see.lovely forever to me.crushed upon the ground it hadn,t come to stay.lovely petals on the sand, mens souls to save its rose was crushed for me and you.  Posted by Picasa

when I was a teenager a long time ago way back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth.{that is what the grandkids say about me and G ma.}me and two friends headed down town to go pick up angora yarn and stuff teens need to servive.well we had finished and headed back to the car.there was anews paper laying on the as I slipped in I moved it and got smacked full force in the face by the biggest moth I had ever seen.he lit out of there amongst screams and people flying out of the car from all I sat there in complete shock.the two girls with me finely looked in to see if I was ok and the big mean moth hadn,t eaten my face off or killed me.they both cracked up laughing and I said "what!!!!??? they finely stopped their laughing and said to look in the I did,my face had moth wing dust all over it.and it didn,t feel so good if you have never seen one of these moths up close and personal then let me tell you they are big!!!at lest as big as my face.but he was pretty and I scared the poor guy.he was just trying to get out away from those screaming ninnys,and to be honest they didn,t do much for my ears eather.well let me tell you one more experience with a moth.thank God it wasn,t as big as this one but it made its presence known.I was laying in bed getting ready to fall asleep when in this big room one little moth desided to fly in to my if you have never had a moth fly in your ear you have not lived!!! I could hear him in there and he wasn,t happy!!!and I wasn,t to happy eather.I did every thing to get him out and stop the sound of him eating my brains out!! no he wasn,t but I was afraid that is what he mit do.well all I managed to do was push him in alot I called my grandma to drive me to the hospital,she said you have what in your ear.I said a moth!!! she said are you sure?? yes gram I can hear him telling me to free him and he is not too off we went to the we got in there and the nurse looked at me like I was some kind of waco when I told her there was a moth in my ear.she said "are you sure??yes lady I can hear him and feel him in there!!!so she looks at my ear.a foot away as if he would fly out and eat her face like alien.she says I don,t see anything.I said lady he is way she gets this long tweezer and puts it in my ear.nothing comes she says again there is nothing there.I said lady there is a moth in my ear!!!!!get it out now!!so she takes her finger and gingerly pulls my ear so she can look in and do what she should have before.and finely she see,s it and gets hold of was good sized to be in my ear.she looks at it and says guess you did have a moth in your ear.I look at her and think she is the I have moth dust in my you think the dust from the other one drew that one?sure hope not cause I don,t need no more moth dust for the rest of my life.Lord I love to see your creatures large and small but please keep them out of my ears thank you.well have a good day all of you and don,t dream about moths ok they do stay way ow guess the two that incountered me told the rest to stay away from people cause of all the people I told this to no one else has ever heared of anyone else having it happen so rest easy it was just a weird thing that happened to me.  Posted by Picasa

have you ever seen some thing or some one you thought was less then attractive?and you just made some mean or just plain dirty remark?well I have!! Iam not saying Iam proud of it just telling you I do dumb stuff Iam not proud of.well when the hubby and I were up in two harbor by lake superior,near the lighthouse.I saw these two tree, frist I thought they sure aint so lovely.but then I stood back and looked really looked at them.and you know they are beautiful.if you could see the shapes and the way the light came throw them.the way the veiw from the back round showed would have seen what I seen.they were unique to say the lest.any tree can be beautiful but only a few can be unique.guess its the same with people.any one can be beautiful in their own right but not all can be unique.God made us all different and to fit in to the special place he wanted us to fit.Pray that I well see the uniqueness in everyone I see so I do not miss the view that comes through them.  Posted by Picasa

when the storms of life move in and you need a beacan in the night to guide you, turn to the lighthouse.the Lord is like a lighthuose perched high on a hill out on a rocky cragg,showing its light for all to see.the waves may be high and the weather beyond belilf.but if you will follow the light you will move safely around the rocks and past the shore safely on your way.the storms will come and the waves will beat your little craft but the master of your ship will get you safely home.this light house is one my huddy and I seen on our trip to the big lake on our annivercery.sweetie took this shot. Posted by Picasa

did you know that some of Gods creatures mate for life with just one mate?did you know that they stay alone sometimes if they lose that mate?life is never easy but it can be alot better with the one God put you with.he knows the kind of person that is right for days people just go with anyone.but God has one person just for you.but he will wait for you to ask him to show who.and one thing to know is he will not send you someone if you are already married.God doesn,t work that way.some people act like God isn,t following his own rules.well he does!!he loves us and will not hurt anyone else to make you happy.I know a person who was unhapppy in their relationship.and someone payed them a little attention and soon the person left the one they were with and went off with the there were kids invalved and it messed up a whole the two who went off together figure everyone else has to just get over it.well it doesn,t work that way.there are hurts and pain and problems that will go on for a long time from this.and like most things that start out wrong it will not be a happyly ever after.when you add sin to the mix you soon have a bigger problem.a year went by and the two felt so much gilt for their stuid act that their relationship soon ended.and they were alone wondering what the heck happened.but then there were more problems.they were alone and the people they had loved moved on and the kids were doing their own thing and making the same mistakes.but the worst was the person finely realized they had really loved the one they had left and that person had really loved can be so sad when people don,t listen to God and not fall into lies and sin.Gods plan is for familys to be together.and he will help you build a strong love and strong family {if} you will let him.but if you choose to go the way of sin you will have a big it or not that is true.if animals and birds have enough brains to mate for life, then don,t you think we should be wise enough to do the same?and no I do not believe you should stay with a abusive person or drunk.but if you have a good mate stick with them and ask God to bring the love back that was there to begin with.marrage isn,t easy but it can be better with Gods is fulled with object leasons all around us.we would be wise to learn by them. Posted by Picasa
