Memory Verse for Sunday and My Favorite Word at This Moment:) :) :)


Feel free to share this Scripture photo with your friends/loved ones or on your blogs. Please let people know where you found this :) :) Oh, to see the full-sized image of this photo or any photo that I post here...just left-click on the image :) :)

Hi everyone... It's actually Saturday night as I write this...but I want it read for Sunday. I'm going to try and take Sunday off from blogging...at least for today anyway :) :)

Here's the latest memory verse for this week....Psalm 27:4 !!! Enjoy!!!

Also my new favorite word is "kerfuffle". It's my new favorite word because of how it sounds when I pronounce it. I love the way it rolls of the tongue. It makes me laugh too..because of the way it sounds!!!  I first came across this in the Anne of Green Gables books and movies. This word is British in origin..and specifically Scottish if I remember correctly. "Kerfuffle" is a loud disorderly disturbance or tumult!!! Marilla Cuthbert used this word...I think it's very apropos for her, don't you? Oh I loved all the characters in the books..but anyway...I don't want to cause  a "keruffle" by writing too much :) :)

Here's a plain version of the collage as I was playing around with all the hydrangea photos that I took!!! I even turned the middle photo into a black & white with just a hint of color :) :)

 
Have a great Sunday and a really good week!!! That's the news from Oregon today. Love and hugs, Heather :)

Oh, the photo collage is gorgeous!! What a fabulous job you did. Along with peonies, hydrangeas are my favorite flowers...and yours are among the most beautiful I've seen.

Such a cute and funny word, kerkuffle. It's been a couple years since I've seen the Anne movies (we no longer have an operable VHS player, and our Anne movies are on VHS). I don't remember that funny word. But it definitely sounds like a Marilla word.

Happy Sunday to you.

Hugs,
Patti

Good morning, Heather. I hope you have a lovely day today. Lovely yard sale finds--wish I could do as well. My daughter and I love old cookbooks--they tell a story!! Have a blessed day.

You are getting fancy with your collages, Heather! Beautiful!! My hydrangeas all bloomed early this year, and now they are just sitting there w/ no apparent new blooming. Hmmm.. could be the weird weather we've had here in the midwest this summer. We had about 12 inches or more of rain for the month of July alone.

You have a blessed week (no kerfuffles)!! -Tammy

Heather, I absolutely delight in seeing these flowers. What a beautiful collage you created. I always smile over here. I love your new wor too. You would get along well with my middle daughter. She knows all about British literature nd their words and meanings. Have a beautiful Sunday. Hugs Anne

Mary said...

That is gorgeous, Heather...both the image and the verse. I particularly love that verse and have it on a magnet on my fridge :)

Hi everyone...I'm a bit behind in writing back to people. So I'll try to catch up :) :) Thanks for leaving me comments. I read each and every single one and am VERY HAPPY when all of you visit me here :) :)

@Patti/A Hopeful Heart - Thanks for the compliment on the photo collage. It's so easy to do. It's just a matter of picking the photos. Those hydrangeas aren't mine...I wish they were. They actually belong to the hospital nearby :) :) :)

@Sheila - Yard sales..I don't know what it is..but I almost always find something good..once in awhile I come back empty handed. Right now, whatever I buy has to have some sort of use in my home, even if it's just decoration!!! That baking cookbook..it's just a little book from 1935, but it does tell a story, even in the photographs. It's really cool ) :)

@Tammy/Flat Creek Farm - Thank you...I'm going to keep experimenting with collages and my try creating my own header one of htese days :) : :) I might try growing my own hydrangeas sometime. They sure are pretty and colorful.

@Anne/Annesphamily :) :) - You're always welcome here :) Oh, you should read the Anne of Green Gables books, there's all kinds of good words in addition to "kerfuffle" :) :)

@Mary - That's so cool, you have that verse on a magnet on your fridge :) :) :) There's a song I sing at church that mentions that verse..and that's why I like it a lot :) :)

Ladies..thanks so much for visiting me here today :) :) I promise not to cause any "keruffles" today :) :) My dad and I could really use your prayers...and I'll do the same for all of you :) :) Have a great Sunday. Much love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :) :)

Heather's Blog-o-rama said...

@Nancy Y - Thanks..I think collages are fun...and I'm going to experiment with more..and hope I don't accidentally cause a "kerfuffle" along the way....LOL :) :)

Love and hugs, Heather :)

kerfuffle... Did I spell it right? I know that I am probably not pronouncing it right. How cute is that? Going to have to teach it to my grandchildren. They are 2 and 6 and would get a big kick out of it.

Take Care~ Sherry

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh, I love hydrangeas and this is sooo beautiful! Thank you!
I love your word too and I've never heard it....how cute! and clever!!

I want to ask you--I need to put a few photos into blocks like you have done the hydrangeas...do I do it in photoshop? Could you let me know? See, I did the Dress Up Challenge for 2010 and I want to put all my dress into one big picture but I don't know how to do it...
thanks so much!!!
Hugs,
Cindy

Cindy Adkins said...

I'm not sure if my message posted, but these hydrangeas are gorgeous and your word is adorable!!!
I can see why it is your favorite!
Hugs,
Cindy

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

I like the word "Kerfuffle" too and am going to share what it means on my Friday "Things I Learned This Week" post at www.zemeks.blogspot.com with a link back here. Thanks for visiting me regularly.

I like those flowers too! We have one in our backyard.

Heather's Blog-o-rama said...

It's definitely cooler today...I don't have to use the air conditioner..Praise God!!! We do still have the fans running...

@Scrapping With Sherry...thanks for paying me a visit ;) ) Yes, you spelled "kerfuffle" correctly :) :) It's such a fun word just to say!!!

@Cindy - You're message posted...both of them did...no worries, there was absolutely no "kerfuffle" in this house :) :) :)

@Karen & Gerard Zemek - "kerfuffle" can have some slightly different meanings...but it's basically a noisy disturbance or tumult :) :) I got that word from Marilla Cuthbert in Anne of Green Gables. You should read those books again when time permits. There's all sorts of great words in there :) :) Take some pictures of your hydrangeas. I'd love to see them!!!

I think I'm going to start introducing older English words back into my vocabulary...starting with kerfuffle :) :) :) You all make my heart very glad!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Hillbilly Handiworks said...

Oh that is great!! It reminds me of Pippy Longstocking. She had a word that she made up and started going to stores asking for it, and using it all the time. It sounds like 'spunk' but a bit different. LOL, thanks for the memory.

Heather's Blog-o-rama said...

Hi Hillbilly Handiworks..thanks for paying me a visit and leaving such a wonderful comment :) :) I hadn't thought of Pippi Longstocking in awhile. I LOVED those movies. I don't remember her use of words...but I remember this one scene in the candy store. That was fun!!!! You're welcome for the memory :) :) Have a lovely week. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
