MAGNOLIAS ARE MY NEW FAVORITE FLOWER
Hi everyone, How have you been doing this week so far? I've been doing well. I've been a bit lazy in posting. There was an idea I had for Tea Time Tuesday that didn't quite make it this week. However, it will be ready for next Tuesday. It'll be so cute. The only clue I' ll give is that it's pink :) :) :)
My dad and I were driving around town the other day when I spotted these magnolias. These particular magnolias are just the loveliest shade of pink and white. Aren't they gorgeous and romantic? I think I want to plant magnolias. These are either "Saucer Magnolias" or "Japanese Magnolias". I vote "Saucer Magnolias" because we do have saucer magnolias, in general, here in Southern Oregon. Either way, these sure are pretty. Wouldn't you agree?
Oh, I'm on this crazy mission to read my Bible in a week. Well, at this rate, it'll be more like a month. However, it was just a spur of the mo ment thing that my father and I decided to do. So we're going for it. It's really interesting. God makes lots of promises. He keeps them, too :) :) Plus, I think God has a sense of humor, because there are certain passages in Exodus that are just making me howl with laughter. What is it you say? Well, one in particular is after Moses has just led the Israelites out of Egypt. I'll save that for another post. I have this funny dialogue running in my head about this :) :) Isn't neat that since the very beginning God is watching out for us :) :) That's awesome :) :) :)
I was having very serious doubts... well, more like worries, about being able to pay bills. Today I was reminded "not to worry", because that's what God tells us to do. So it's been neat for me personally to see how God is reassuring me that everything will be okay. It will and I'm NOT worried :) :) :)
Have a great Thursday everyone :) :) That's the news from Oregon today. Love and hugs, Heather :)
