As I read these it reminded me of my grandmother who had a saying for just about any occasion. She's been gone a little over 5 years now and I still miss her terribly. Whatever lessons I've learned in life about generosity and a giving heart, I have learned from her!

Now if only I could remember them, people would think that I am so wise and not just a wisecracker.

PS --- The flowers in the post were picked out of the yard here and there and saved from the ravages of Jack Frost. The temp this evening is 62F! I took the dogs for a walk and I had to unbutton my jacket! I love it!

How lucky you are! We've had heavy rain and very strong winds all day long. It was gusting up to 80mph at times! I'm so glad it's finally calmed down out there. I've been awake since 4AM. Come to think of it, I should go to bed. ;o)

Gorgeous flowers, btw.

Totally off the subject...After I read your most recent comment on my site, I did an internet search on YOUR church and found it! As I looked around your church's website, I saw that the Ladies Ministry is doing the Beth Moore series on "The Patriarchs". I am really wanting to do that series! If it weren't so far maybe I'd just drive on over and do it with them! Have you had an opportunity to do any of Beth Moore's other studies? She is one of my favorite Bible Study teachers!
