Thank You

One of my elderly neighbors came over Christian weekend, to bring my husband and I a box of candy. It was such a neat surprise. I know it is hard for her to get around, due to her health, yet she took time out for us. That is really the Christmas spirit, isn't it? So, I made her a special card, to take to her along with more of our garden vegs.

We are on our count down to the big day! Children are so excited and out of school, parents are broke, traffic is horrible, yet we are blessed! Long, long ago Christ came to us, to fill such a void in our lives. What a wonderful day to remember. Keep Christ in your CHRISTmas!

WOW!! Has it really been 17 years ago, that I got to hold my first grandbaby, a BIG red-headed baby boy?? How time flies. Now he has his own car, is employed, has a girlfriend, and loves to play golf. Guess you now know why Mama Joy made him a golf card.(he even posted it on FB) Love that kid! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COLLIN!

October is Pastor Appreciation month. My, how I love my Pastor and 1st Lady. A pastor plays such a role in the life of a Christian. He is there for us through thick-n-thin. He marries us, dedicates our children, and preaches our funerals. He's up at the hospital with us during emergency's. He calls our name in prayer many a day. This doesn't even do justice to our man of God. I'm so thankful for his kindness and love to me. And, standing beside him all the way, is his wife. Yep, a wife can either break or make her man. I really appreciate this couple in my life.

Oh, goodness! My youngest grandchild is celebrating his 1st birthday today! Wonder what he is going to think about his little party? He is growing up so fast. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, JACOB!!

Why Men Are Never Depressed!

Thanks for this clipping, Vivian!!

Why Men are never Depressed

Men Are Just Happier People-- What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours.
Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack.
You can be President.

You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park. Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.

You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5000, tux rental-$100 . People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected.

New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.

You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.

Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough. You almost never have strap problems in public.
You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.

Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life. Y our belly usually hides your big hips. One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can "do" your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.

You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are happier.

Today Lloyd & Vivian are celebrating their Wedding Anniversary. My how my husband and I wish them a most wonderful day! We really appreciate them so much, and trust this will be a very blessed year! Love from us, AND Boudreaux!!

Gifts of Answered Prayers

In the Ozark Mountains west of Eureka Springs, Arkansas, is one of the most beautiful little chapels in the world. It is called Thorncrown Chapel, an architectural wonder made of glass. It looks like it has just grown there in the woods. The school-teacher who had envisioned this little jewel in the trees, said, "When we first finished Thorncrown, we encountered a problem that seemed insurmountable. Spiders loved to weave their webs high up in the glass loft of the chapel. Though we cleaned persistently, we couldn't get rid of them. Finally, we turned to the Lord in prayer. Less than a week later, a full grown male peacock came to Thorncrown. He just appeared and adopted us. We contacted farmers in the area and even advertised in the local paper, but no one claimed him. We named him Caleb, for he took over our mountain. Besides the grain we fed him, he ate bugs off the ground--including ants and spiders. One day we realized there were fewer spiderwebs in the loft than before. Soon there were none at all! All the while we were praying for a solution to our spider problem, Caleb had been at work, reducing the spider population!" When Caleb first appeared, did the folks at Thorncrown consider him an answer to prayer? I think not. But, God sometimes has a delightful , almost humorous way of performing His wonders. To me, the moral of this little peacock story is plain: DON'T BE AFRAID OR SHY ABOUT ASKING GOD FOR ANYTHING. "Ask, and it shall be given you"(Matt. 7:7). And, when you've asked, watch for answers like Caleb. Unlikely and unexpected though they are, they may go a long way toward clearing out the "cobwebs" that block your view!........................Dorothy Shellenberger
