What’s this, a role call or something?

Can’t I just eat with a little peace and quiet?

After all it’s Saturday

and I had a long week at the office.

Do you think they will miss us at the feeder this morning?

I say,”What the world needs now is Love Sweet Love”. 

Now wouldn’t that just knock your talons off!!! 

If everyone loved,everyone.

The True Meaning Of Love

 4Love is patient and kind.
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5
or rude.
It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable,
and it keeps no record of being wronged.
It does not rejoice about injustice
but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful
and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

The Inspired Word Of God

God has a very high standard of Love.
He Himself demonstrated True Love on the cross
where Jesus gave His Life,
that we could live by being born again, Spiritually.
There is no one in all the earth or universe
that can claim such Love, as God, our Creator.


 We know what real love is because
Jesus gave up his life for us.
So we also ought to give up our lives
for our brothers and sisters.
1John 3:16


So now I am giving you a new commandment:
Love each other. Just as I have loved you,
you should love each other. John 13:34



As I read these verses, I see how
I have come short of God’s Standard.
but I know He loves me, and because of His Grace I am saved
and I pray that His Love will shine through me,
and my love will shine through to others.
He is the source of Love in it’s purest form.

Thank you one and all, who have taken the time to read my blog,
and for those who leave your heart prints by leaving a comment.

May you have a wonderful day and God be with you.

Also, my mom is doing well after her surgery.
and I spend as much time with her as I can.
Baby Hope is doing amazingly well,
and is growing stronger every day.
She now ways approx. 6lbs.
Thank you all who have prayed for my mom and Hope,
and my family, and for me also.
Prayer is such an act of Love, and as one friend said,
Prayers are treasures sent to Heaven.
God sees them all when we come to Him with a sincere heart,
and humbly before Him.

Please remember Carole, our dear sister,
who fell and broke her wrist, and injured her knees.
She has prayed for so many of us, in our time of need

I realize this post is long,
but I guess you could say I am making up for lost time,
as my life is full, and very busy most of the time.
I hope to come and visit you all real soon.

Love and Care

Dianne :)

Sweet Dreams

Daddy’s Little Girl



These photos were taken on Sunday Morning when I went with my son for Hope’s Feeding.

She no longer has her tube in and was released from the hospital today and is home with her family. She weighs in at 5 lbs. and is now 57weeks old. What a miracle she is.

Thank you Jesus for this precious gift you have given  us to love and cherish. Thank you for answered prayers.

Thank you all so very much for your prayers and support during the weeks leading up to this happy day.

God Bless each and everyone of you.

Don’t give up Hope

The answers to Prayer

are on the way!






A wee bit of heaven
drifted down from above-
A handful of happiness,
a heart full of love.
The mystery of life,
so sacred and sweet-
The giver of joy
so deep and complete.
Precious and priceless,
so lovable, too-
The world’s sweetest miracle,
baby, is you.
~ Helen Steiner Rice



Baby Hope


You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
~ Psalm 139:16



I want to thank all of you who have prayed, and those who will continue to pray for Baby Hope, and her mommy and daddy, and her siblings, and family.

It has been a rough, hard journey thus far but each day she is getting a little stronger as she continues to grow. Hope is now 36wks. old and weighs 4lbs 15oz.. It is hard to believe that under normal circumstances, she would be still in her mommy’s womb.

Hope is out of the NICU, and is in a Special Care Unit at this time. She still has her feeding tube in but is starting to breast feed as well. She tires easily and has a way to go before she can go home to her loving family. Please remember her mom in your prayers, as she faithfully goes in every three hours to feed her little one, and mommy and daddy are very tired beyond words, and will be glad when Hope can be with them at home.

Hang in there Sandra, and David. I am so very proud of you both. Take a day at a time, and you will get through these trying days, and soon look back and see just how far you all have come.  You are not alone, and many are filling in the gap by praying that God will give you the strength to do all you have to do. Don’t give up Hope, for the answers are on the way.

Thank you Jesus for Hope, our little Miracle which is a Gift from above. Watch over her as she grows. May she be healthy and strong, and may your hand be upon her all the days of her life. May we always be thankful, for the great things you have done. May we count our Blessings, one by one. Amen



I hope to find you all well and thank you for your encouraging words, and prayers. They mean more than you will ever know. May God Bless each one of you.

I haven’t been able to blog for awhile. Lots still going on. My mom is recovering from her surgery, and I have been helping her as much as I can. Please remember her in your prayers also if you feel lead to do so. She has chronic kidney disease, but is still able to live on her own with help.

Well that’s  about it for now. I will end with this verse of scripture that has helped me .  I have my share of ups and downs, like everyone else, but God has seen me through them all, and He is my Strength and Strong Hold. I am weak but He is Strong. I am imperfect and God is Perfect in everyway. He is my Help.

Mathew 11 vs 28,29,30

28.Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest in your souls. 30. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.


I hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend.

xoxo Dianne :)
