What a Wonderful World

I see trees of green, red roses, too,
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

You can probably hear ole Louis singing that right now.   There are so many things in this world that are beautiful.

I took the picture below today that makes me wish to be an ant for a few minutes so I could crawl through this fresh patch of Spring.  It looks so happy.

???????????????????????

The next part of the song talks about my favorite:

???????????????????????

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

I love a beautiful blue sky full of white clouds.  God truly made this world beautiful.  He made so many amazing things that make us stop in awe.  He works in this world and all you really have to do to see Him is look.

But no matter how much beauty this world may have…

I know this isn’t THE wonderful world.  I know this place is not my home.  I must remember this especially when some of the things of this world aggravate me or make me sad.   When devastating things happen in this world, I am so thankful that God has a more beautiful, more WONDERFUL world ready for me.

Today, a beautiful family lost their young boy to an accident.  I’ve cried and prayed all afternoon for my sweet friends.  I can only imagine what or how they feel.  To lose a child has got to be the worse pain to bear in this world.  It’s hard to be happy for him, even though we know he is in the best WONDERFUL world, when the pain is so hard here in this wonderful world.  Our grief, what ifs and other questions cannot allow us to be at peace with the fact that God has got him.  He’s with Jesus.  Wow.

GOD is waiting in the real WONDERFUL world for us.  Our pain will one day go away.  This life is but a vapor and by believing in HIM, we will be reunited with Him, our sweet babies, parents, grandparents, friends and all those we have lost from this world one day.

And on that day… we will all be singing together…

What a Wonderful World!

(I believe the words will be somewhat different than Mr. Armstrong’s rendition, though.)

National Train Day

Yep, today is NATIONAL TRAIN DAY!
We went to the dedication ceremony at the historic train station building in Longview. We got to look through a portable train museum and hang out with some important train people. There was also some very interesting people watching.
I took some sweet pictures.
Sharing them:

BLESSINGS!!!

My heart is full.  I have been blessed the last couple of days with so much joy.

The weekend started off with a night off.  Yep!  I got a night to just do nothing.  I watched cartoons!  In my blog on Friday, I mentioned that I was tired of the news.  So, I turned that mess off–any REALITY TV was banned from my sight.  My girl child had a friend over and it was great hearing them giggle.  I watched GARFIELD until I went to sleep.  That was the start of a great weekend.  Blessings!

Saturday, I woke up to an unbelievably awesome morning.  The sky was blue, the temperature was a bit crisp and chilly, but it was amazing.  I cooked a breakfast dish for the power lifting meet hospitality room and got my child and her bestie up to the event to help out.  Then back home to cook for our company that were in from Kansas to hunt hogs.  I do love to cook especially for a “party” which is exactly what my husband was throwing for these hunters.  He was being a great host–he smoked all kinds of stuff while I worked on the fixins.  While cooking for them, I also cooked a casserole for the lunch hospitality room.  Again, I enjoy cooking.  Blessings!

After going back up to the power lifting meet to deliver the lunch dish and watch a bit, I came back home to visit with Bobby and his hunting visitors.  Then, Mason and I went over to a birthday party for a few minutes.  It’s so great to celebrate birthdays!  The clown that was there was bit creepy and didn’t talk–I think he was a mime instead of a clown.  Anyway, that was funny.

Back home again, I sat out in our shop with the big door open to enjoy the weather and the company.  It’s great to just talk with other people and share stories.  The day was just beautiful.  The day had turned warmer and the sky was amazing.  I love blue skies with big puffy clouds.  It was such a blessing to be taking all that in.  Blessings!

Morgan was now home thanks to our friends dropping her off from the power lifting meet.  She was jumping on the trampoline and Mason was with the other boys from the hunting party shooting b-b guns.  The blessings of the day were pictures of perfection.  God is so good!  Blessings!

I then was honored to go with a great friend of mine to a church she was speaking to for their Valentine’s Banquet.  We laughed pretty much the whole way there, was blessed by so many people once we arrived (and the great food they prepared) and got to reflect and laugh some more on the way home.  A friend is such a blessing!

Once I was back home, I got to watch the hunters clean their hogs–not the top part of the day, but still an ok time.  The temperature had turned cold again , but the fire was going on in the shop –I love to get warm by a fire!  Blessings!

I ended up getting in the house fairly late and didn’t post on here last night due to just exhaustion–FROM ALL THE BLESSINGS!

AND TODAY–Today just created a continuation of a great weekend of blessings.  Sunday school was great.  I love the students I’m so fortunate to teach.  Church service was packed and great.  One of my students sang FARTHER ALONG with me for special music.  I’ve got to work on getting more people to sing up there.  Our congregation is growing–I know there are more people out there that can sing.  I’m excited to see who can and will!

After church, Morgan and I were blessed to eat lunch with a former student of mine that is like my own child.  I’m so proud of who she is and the great stuff she has going on.  I knew she would do great things.  She is one of my many blessings!

The ride home with the sunroof open was super!  The sky was again blue with the huge clouds.   When we got back home, I got in a little nap before going to our church’s Valentine’s banquet.  MORE BLESSINGS!  Our youth group served us and did such a great job.  Food, fellowship and fun—BLESSINGS!

Now, reflecting here over this entire weekend, as I said, I just feel so full.  My heart is happy.  We are blessed!

Finishing this blog now…while my child reads his daily devotional to us.  …BLESSINGS!!!

It’s a throw back kind of day today!

I saw this picture on pinterest and thought O MY, I HAD THIS EXACT SAME ONE! I have loved clouds for a very long time. Looking at this makes me just smile and think back about how much I always LOVED and still do love to get school supplies.

Today, on our trip back to Texas, I got to see a lot of great clouds out of the airplane window. I just love those things. I love GOD’s creations, but especially clouds. LOVE!

It started way back with a Trapper Keeper. Ha!
