Such a Marvelous Monday 

It is so pretty outside, such a bright sun shining, hurts your eyes. The fishing trip of my son and dh went really well, they caught about 17 Brim, so our freezer is doing well, and kinda bulging, (giggles)We had a great Sunday, Chuck got to teach the men a gain, the man who usually teaches is off on sick leave, he had a hip replacement, so they ask Chuck to do it, he is doing well, but spent too much time in the sun Saturday fishing, it took its toll on him, give him allergies again, and wore him out.

One of my students in SS give me a sitting hen, it is so cute, she knows I collect them and I thought that was so sweet of her, we did a good lesson on Elijah and the widow, I asked them how many of them would give their last morsel of food for a stranger, only one said well if God told me to I would, praise God for one right answer eh.
Last night one of our Missionary's came and preached, he was real good and did an allegory about fishermen, from Mark where Jesus called the men to be fishers of men. Was different and he compared the folks in churches with various fish, was interesting for sure. Never been compared to a fish before, heehee, oh well it takes all kinds.
Today we have been busy in the yard, watering the garden, and I was doing my potted plants with fresh dirt and moved some into the flower garden around my tree, we had put leaves in them to protect them from the cold and it did really good, they have a head start and are doing really good, have some new shoots coming up too. Chuck was blowing leaves and picking them up to put in his compost pile. Our garden is doing great, and my rose bushes are started to sprout too, we bought some climbing roses and put them by the fence, so hoping they do good, and bloom this year.
Well that is about all in my world for now, so what are you up to my blogging friends, share with us, and let us know how and what you are up to. Be blessed and be a blessing, God loves you.

How funny that the subject was Fisher of Men!!
We are having much needed rain showers today.
Temps are where I like them also.

Well, I just love that teapot pouring out hearts! :)

We had snow over the weekend, although it rarely snows here, and we enjoyed it.

Sharon said...

We are having great weather here too. So pretty and nice to have the windows open. Children are so funny and honest about their opinions on things. :D

Marsha snow, oh me I could not handle that this time of year, I do love my weather in the South, and Theresa I thought with all the fishing we have did here lately it was a rather funny allegory for him to choose.

We had such a windy day yesterday that it blew down part of our neighbor's fence. Your growing things sound lovely. Wish I didn't live in the desert!

Dee said...

The allegory about fisherman went well with all the Brim you guys have been catching. Odd how things like that play out. :) I am not up to very much...which makes for very little blogging material LOL.

Barbara said...

Yes it is Dee, and I have been praying for you and your dh, hope all is going well for you both. I love to catch up with everyone, I am going to day with dh to get his hair cut, then to pick up some flowers to put between my plants. Should be real pretty when I am finished, I will post a picture when all done. Have a great day, it is another beauty here.

I love your blinkies!!

I have had a ...Tremendous Beautiful neighbor and I walked and talked about the LORD..and she asked my Testimony..PRAISE GOD..spoke so much about desiring TRUTH and a solid foundation in the KJV. She is saved..but searching. AMEN. Made the SON shine even brighter in my neighborhood.

By the you know the missionaries Daniel Kessler to Bulgaria? Outstanding young man and family if you are intested in their work! They leave in May for the field. AMEN.

GOD BLESS you Barb...
