Saturday Afternoon

It is Saturday afternoon. My daughter's visit is over and she has gone back to Mexico. We had such a good time and a good visit. I was blue all day Wednesday but I am fine now.
Karen and Kelly are camping with their church group this weekend. No one wanted to drive a long distance to get to the lake so they are close to home at a lake! With a tent and the whole outdoorsy stuff!! Kelly got wet when it rained last night! She said everything has dried out and no big deal. I think part of the group are out on a pontoon boat this afternoon.
I have been camping when I was younger, but I like to camp at the Best Western rather then out doors!! I like having a picnic and being out side but not sleeping out there!

I got this in an E-mail this week. You may have already seen this but I will share it for anyone who hasn't received this E-mail.....

The Holy Alphabet
Whoever came up with this one must have had some Divine guidance!

Although things are not perfect

Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His love
Joy would cease to be
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee
Move out of "Camp Complaining"
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand
Start every day with worship
To "thank" is a command
Until we see Him coming
Victorious in the sky
We'll run the race with gratitude
Xalting God most high
Yes, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but...
Zion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!

"I AM Too blessed to be stressed!"

The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor. The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything.

My taste in camping accommodations is the same as yours. :-)

I have received that in e-mails, too -- good food for thought!

I love you my dear friend.

Your blog is looking good. That's my idea of camping, too.
I am off to the beach tomorrow.

Glad you had a good visit with your daughter. I'm sure you miss her when she leaves.

Sounds like the girls are having a great camping trip. A pontoon boat sounds like fun.

Beautiful poem and so very true. Thanks for sharing.

There was a time I loved to camp out; that time has passed. To everything there is a season.

I understand your feelings at your daughter leaving. Our son lives in Georgia, and we see him once a year. It's sad to see him leave.

Sometimes giant print is there for good reason :)
Thanks Love you.

Yea... I used to love to camp when we had the pop-up camper -- but if tents are all that are available - I'll take the Best Western too! LOL! I'm not much for gettin' WET while I sleep either! Leave that to the young whipper-snappers! ;)

I wish all my friends shared their emails on their blogs instead of filling up MY inbox! You're a gem Gram!
