A Walk In The Park

Jesse loves to run ahead, but never lets me out of his sight !

He comes running at the mention of his name.

He is one happy boy, this day as he gets to run and play

He stopped long enough to pose as he looks towards the Bay.


He is our boy and we wouldn’t trade him for a Million Dollars. He brings us so much joy. There isn’t a day goes by that he doesn’t make me laugh out loud. He is my little white shadow. I thank God for pets! What would we do without them? I know many of you can relate because you have pets of your own. I can’t imagine a world without them.

This reminds me of a cute little story about a girl and a dog. I hope it will bring a smile to your face, and a chuckle to brighten your day.


A saleswoman  passed a particular corner each day on her way to work. One day she observed a young girl trying to sell a floppy – eared puppy. After a week , the saleswoman finally said to the girl. “Honey if you really want to sell this dog, then I suggest you clean him up and make people think they are getting something big.” At noon the saleswoman had noticed that the girl had taken her advice. The puppy was groomed and sitting under a big sign. “TREEMEMMDOUS Puppy for sale $5,000.”

To her surprise, on the way home she noticed the puppy was gone. Flabbergasted, the woman sought out the girl to ask her if she really sold the puppy for 5,000.

The girl replied, “ I sure did, and I want to thank you for all your help..” The saleswoman stuttered, “How in the world did you do it?” The girl said, “It was easy. I just took two $2,500. cats in exchange!”


Two thousand years ago there was another great exchange. Jesus Christ gave His life in exchange for ours. What value did He see in us? We were His prized creation, stolen for a season by our own will , but now repurchased as His beloved possession.


For you are bought with a price therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.  1 Corinthians 6:20.


I hope to find you all well. Have a Blessed week.

Peace and Grace be with you.

One Little Bird Sitting In A Tree



One little bird, sitting in a tree

Looking as  pretty as can be.

As she looks down

I wonder what you see

besides me,

perched way up in that tree?

Little is me
Even Little are my eyes
But Little are not my dreams!
Need open space to fly
Want to rule the sky!
Need a song to sing
Want to unfurl my wings!
Need to unbend on twig
Want to grin & swing.

Winter Female Goldfinch I Believe



It has been awhile since I last posted. I have had a lot going on in my daily life as we all do. I am writing this on my old, but yet fairly reliable laptop, as my computer crashed a week ago today. I am waiting for a new motherboard, which is somewhat displeasing considering my PC is only a year and a half old. My old faithful but now slow laptop, is 6 yrs. old and still going, thank goodness. :)

I am very thankful that I had all my photos back-up. :) I am also thankful that I had an extended warranty and service plan so my PC is being repaired right here in my home town, and did not have to be packaged up and sent off to never, never land. They did have to send away for the motherboard, and so it may take a week or two to get it back. I am trying to stay positive, and complaining only makes one miserable, I think! I choose to be thankful. After all , it isn’t life threatening, and I try to put things in prospective.

Now on the other hand, my mom was not well, as she had a respiratory infection and was on antibiotics, and then developed shingles. That in itself was hard to deal with, and I felt so bad for her. My mom has kidney disease and this could have caused major complications for her such as Pneumonia, which could have caused her kidneys to fail, and in the need of dialysis. Again I am very thankful that she has recovered from her respiratory infection and give God the Glory.

As far as the shingles, they are now almost gone. After being on the medication for only a day, mom called me to come over as she was having some serious side-effects from the medication. She was taken off the meds immediately, and after a couple of days she was back to normal. I prayed the Lord would heal mom of her shingles as there was nothing she could take to ease her discomfort,and He did. I give God the Glory!

We now have our house on the market, and will be having an open house tomorrow. We are hoping to sell , and be able to buy a townhouse condo. We have not looked at any condos, and will not, until we get an offer on our house. The housing market is slow right now, and there aren’t many townhouses on the market either, but I am trusting the Lord, and I pray His Will be done. He knows our hearts, and also knows what is best for us. I also love our home, but would like to be able to downsize as to put us in a better financial situation, with the way the economy is these days. But, no matter what we will continue to trust our God in the good times, and the difficulties of life. Again I am very thankful for our home, our family, and friends, each one of you, and so much more.  I appreciate your prayers.

Many of you are in my thoughts and prayers this day. It is  bright sunny, and somewhat mild here today. May God be with each one of you, and I hope it is sunny where you are today, but if not, be encouraged, the sun is on it’s way, it may just take another day. Hey, before you know it, Spring will be here. Have a great day! Hope to find you all well!

Sincerely, Dianne :)
