Well for all that read my blog ..the water is running again ...Barry got it going HURRAY
A Moment for You
Be good to
Life is so busy,
it's probably been
a while since you
asked, "What makes me happy?"
Or maybe you worry that
taking some "me" time
will take away
from the people
you care about.
But you're
important, too!
So today and everyday
do something
that makes you smile.
You deserve it!

Well today Glen and Patty brought the girls and came up for lunch was great to have them...

This is awesome recipe to follow ..I did it Barb and the pictures are below ...thanks sis

Fully defrost roast.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Put roast in pan, fat side up.
Poke a meat thermometer in it.
Put in preheated oven.
Bake 60 minutes.
Shut oven off. DO NOT open door.
Leave, door shut, for 2 – 4 hours.
Turn oven on to 375 degrees F. Roast for additional 60 mins.
Check thermometer for doneness ( I left mine in an extra 20 mins for medium)
Take out of oven. Cover with foil. Let rest for 20 min.

This was how it looked going into the oven :

Well today I babysit ...and the girls were ready for their Grama. It was Grama we have to have a tea party ...

Hannah had the teapot and teacups on the table before I could say OK.

Well then Abi decide that today's menu should be cheese and crackers and pickles of course.

So off the kitchen and Abi pulling a chair in so she can pile everything on the plate and serve it for tea..she is the little hostess.

Our tea is Mango Peach flavoured water it was a fun time . Then after tea time it was off to build a fort ....sorry did not get any pictures of that time
(My thanks to Bannerwoman and Evak and Bderksen for the elements used in this layout.)
love the teapot and cups Barb
also : did you know ---the energy saved by recycling just one
plastic bottle could power a computer for 25 minutes.
Remember to Recycle....

Oh Father, everything around me seems to be changing--
my body, my family, my world. How grateful I am that you, Lord, never change.
Therefore, regardless of the changes that occur in mylife,
I know I can trust you to keep on taking care of me just as you have in the past I thank
You that You will generously provide all that I need.

You will make all grace abound to me.

Then I will have plenty for myself as well as for others.

In Jesus' name, amen

In the last few days I have been total of 2 friends having cancer...
both are a case of cancer returning ....
yesterday I was luck to be able to spend the day with one of them
Rose ...she has a positive attitude ....she has the Lord in her life ...

My other friend Miriam ..has been a friend since grade 7 and
I believe the Lord is going to bless her .....
so if in reading this could you please add a little prayer for each of them .....

Friendship is a precious gift,

that cannot be bought or sold.

but it's value is far greater,

than a mountain made of gold.

For gold is cold and lifeless,

It can neither see nor hear,

and in the time of trouble,

it is powerless to cheer.

It has no ears to listen,

no heart to understand.

It cannot bring you comfort,

or reach out a helping hand.

So when you ask God for a gift,

be thankful if he sends,

Not diamonds, pearls or riches

But the love of real true Friends.....

~ Author Unknown

Ephesians 4:26-27
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger,brawling and slander
along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another
forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Here is gramma bragging
Has many if you know we got to see all the grandkids here are some up to date pictures of them

These are our granddaughters all 5

Here is Hannah and Abi enjoying the snow that has fallen around Kamloops....

Those pictures are of Tanya Forsyth boys ..when Surrey had snow ...Tanya the boys look like they are having tons of fun....thanks for the pictures them.

Well on to entering what is on my heart :

For the longest time my SIL Barb has been saying ..stay with the Lord ..let him Barb the walk begins
I love my SIL with all my heart ....she always have and always will be beside me
her love is unconditionally ...even when I screw up ...THANKS SIS

Daily time with the Lord is absolutely essential for our spiritual health. It is our lifeline to our Lord. Without it we will be powerless and unfruitful. But with it, we are ready to face the day, no matter what it holds. For we can be assured that:

He will never leave us or forsake us. He will guide us and guard us.
He will give us the wisdom we need and the words we need.
He will give us courage and comfort. He will give us strength and a song to sing.
He will give us the joy of the Lord, His peace will surround us wherever we go.
He will hear and answer as we walk in the light of His presence.

The very first He will reminds me of Barb and the love we share and how her and Miles have always stood by as I start this year ..I want to thank them family ...The Forsyth's Family girls and my grandkids..

Then Jesus told his disciples....that they should always pray not give up.(Luke 18:1)

I ask Lord that all that all that I may have offended or hurt in 2007..will find forgiveness in their hearts for me and give me another chance be what they need me to be ...I ask in your name Lord ...and thank you for all that you will do ...

(and for those that wonder what SIL is it stands for sister -in-law)

I recommend going over to Barb's blog ..she has so much to offer and lots of love to give..just click on her name and whish you are there ....have a great day .

This is our little Abi...she loves the snow...

Well here we are in to the 4th of January...the weather is so mild and things are melting. Where we are parked we can see for some distance even over is a pretty view. Below us is a little pond the people in this area have cleaned it and all can skate on it ...Melissa and her friend are hoping to do that is Barry’s last day off then he is back for 4 days it will be a relaxing day for him.
It is hard to believe...we are going on to our 7 month of living in our fifth wheel

So today Lord I ask for my words to be pleasing to You today. Set a watch over my lips, so that I will know when to speak and when to remain silent. I pray that out of my mouth will flow words of wisdom and kindness. May my speech always be gracious, “seasoned with salt.” May I know how to respond to each person I encounter. May I be slow to speak and slow to become angry. Help me to listen carefully to others, not interrupting their conversations. Prompt me to speak fitting words. Thank You for helping this important area today. In Jesus name, amen.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:14)

In this area I have lots to learn...need to learn to slow down and listen...since hurting my knee and seeing at this time they will not do the operation. I have found me feeling sorry for me ...and poor me and all that other stuff that comes with me stuff. It has been hard for me to let go of my independence...and to take the help and the words of love ...I ask for their forgiveness ...and ask for them to understand ...and ask the Lord to also work in this area ...for me to see it is in love they offer the help ....and helpful hand.
