My life is but a weaving,

Between my Lord and me,

I cannot choose the colors,

He worketh steadily.

Oft times he weaveth sorrow,

And I in foolish pride,

Forget He sees the upper,

And I, the underside.

Not 'til the loom is silent,

And the shuttles cease to fly,

Shall God unroll the canvas,

And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful,

In the weaver's skillful hands,

As the threads of gold and silver,

In the pattern he has planned.

(We don't know who wrote this but LaVerne often quoted it.)

.

I THINK THAT YOU KNOW WHERE I AM GOING RIGHT NOW AND I AM IN A HURRY TO GET THERE. Sara's Dog Training I HAVE NOT HAD A GOOD SMILE SINCE SATURDAY, AND I ALWAYS NEED HELP ON MONDAY MORNING TO GET ONE STARTED/ YOU BETTER COME WITH ME. DAD.

I have the Starbucks Coffee , Sumatra X Bold ready and waiting on you, stop in any time you , are always welcome. The only thing that I want is a BIG SMILE from you. I do not like to see frowns in the mornings. And let's not worry and fret about what is going to happen to us today, let's leave that in the hands of the one who controls the wind and sea. Dad.

. I think that this is enough for this Monday morning. I am comming back in the morning, if all goes well. Let,s try to be happy today, living for others is the best way to find happiness that I know of. Thy it out this very day.

LIMP ON


He slipped, he fell, the fall was sore,

With aching limbs he rose

Undaunted courage spurred him on

Towards the goal he chose.

His speed 'twas not as 'twas before

The fall had left him lame,

Hope kindly whispered to him, said

Limp on, lose not the game!

'Tis true he limped, but limping on

Ranked him amongst the brave,

Would he have gained if he had made

That fallen place his grave?

Time’s balsam heals the aching wounds

Of all who fall but rise

And limp and struggle on and on,

Until they gain the prize.

You may too have fallen,

But limp on, my friend, limp on.

Dad and Mary

Hi Sara, I am sorry that I am late this morning. We had a busy day yesterday and I was very tired, so I stayed in my bed a little longer this morning. But I have been thinking about Misty and Oreo all morning. I need to peep at them so that my smile will come easier. So if any of you want to go with me hop on Sara's Dog Training and we will go see them. Now hop off and smile.

Thank Sara for giving us so much to enjoy DAD.

.

I am late with our Starbucks Coffee this morning. But since this is Saturday morning I am sure that it is alright with you. So sleep as long as you want to, then stop in and I will serve you a cup of good strong SUMUTRA X bold. I have already tried it and it is delicious. I will be home all day. You are always welcome at Dad;s house, I love to serve you. DAD.

.

This is going to be all for this Saturday morning. I hope to be back on Monday morning if my life is spared. Mary and I are looking to have a good Sunday and hope the same for you. We love all of you in every land.

Be kind and smile first every time that you have the opportunity all weekend

FRIDAYS ENTRY # TWO THOUSAND & FOUR

HOW TO OBSERVE THANKSGIVING

Count your blessings instead of your troubles.;Count your gains instead of your losses.Count your joys instead of your woes;Count your friends instead of your foes
.Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.Count your full years instead of your lean;Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.Count your health instead of your wealth;Count on God instead of yourself.
~~Author Unknown.~~

Good Morning.

I Ate Too Much Turkey

by Jack Prelutsky

"I ate too much turkey,

I ate too much corn,

I ate too much pudding and pie,

I'm stuffed up with muffins

And way too much to stuffin',

I'm probably going to die.

I piled up my plate

and I ate and I ate,

But I wish I had known when to stop,

For I'm so crammed with yams,sauces, gravies, and jams

That my buttons are starting to pop.

I'm full of tomatoes

And french fried potatoes,

My stomach is swollen and sore,

But there's still some dessert,

So I guess it won't hurt

If I eat just a little bit more."


Thanksgiving Day, 2009
DON'T QUIT
.

DON’T QUIT WHEN THE TIDE IS LOWEST, FOR IT'S JUST ABOUT TO TURN.
DON'T QUIT OVER DOUBTS AND QUESTIONS, FOR THERE'S SOMETHING YOU MAY LEARN.
DON'T QUIT WHEN THE NIGHT IS DARKEST, FOR IT'S JUST A WHILE 'TILL DAWN.
DON’ T QUIT WHEN YOU'VE RUN THE FARTHEREST, FOR THE RACE IS ALMOST WON.
DON'T QUIT WHEN THE HILL IS STEEPEST, FOR YOUR GOAL IS ALMOST NIGH.
DON'T QUIT, FOR YOU'RE NOT A FAILURE, UNTIL YOU FAIL TO TRY.

WEDNESDAY's ENTRY # TWO THOUSAND & TWO.

Good Morning.
.
" Time is so precious-do not waste it.".
.
" Wasted years will come again no more."
.
"Many years of life are wasted living for thyself alone.".
.
I hope that all of you are feeling good this Wednesday morning. I am trying to get started but it is a struggle for me. So much happens in all of our lives that causes us too worry and fret. I am so Thankful for our Heavenly Father the one that we can go to at any time for help and comfort. And I don't forget all of my friends here on this earth, you all help this Old Man to keep plodding on.
.
Many years ago I first heard this thought. " Smile and the world smiles with you, weep and you weep alone." I don't really agree with that. I feel like in all my past life I have never had to cry alone. There have always been my friends to cry with me, and what a comfort that has been. Dad.
.
Good morning Sara. I am going to your Sara's Dog Training blog a little late today but I will be there, I never miss. I must see Oreo and Misty before I get started to work. And I want to tell you how much I liked the video of Misty getting in on some of that training. She looked so proud, and I am proud her. I love MISTY. DAD.

I am sorry to have to tell you this morning that Jim is sick, you all know him of course, he is my Son, Mary's Brother and the one that writes that blog Tennessee Granddaddy I would like for you to go to his blog and let him tell you in his own words the problem that he is having. Jim, Dad and Mary Love you very much. If all goes well here we will see you early Thursday morning. DAD.
.
I have our Starbucks Coffee perking and it is the Sumatra X bold this morning. It will be ready in a few minuet. Sit dwn and relax and I will be doing the serving. All I want you to do is smile and enjoy your coffee. Dad.
.
Now is a good time for all of us to look at some of the New products being offered to us. Look at this below. Would it not be a pleasure to produce Tomatoes like these . Well you can Dad.
.
Organic tomato growers and consumers are extremely conscious about receiving an organic, chemical free supply of tomatoes. These products contain natural, organic organisms (the main ingredients are OMRI listed). These organisms are certified as non-pathogenic and natural (NO GMO), not genetically modified. Reduce hazardous chemical use in farming with natural, biological soil amendments and root treatments. Beneficial bacteria and fungi are a probiotic for the soil!contact us @ http://www.biggertomato.com/ I hope that you will look at this, it might make you smile this spring. Dad.

Down below is a little information about something that I am very much interested in. I know that we may think that it is too early to be thinking about tomatoes. But you will be surprised how soon that time comes around. Now I am talking about my part of the world it will be the last week of March before we start. But I know that some of you are already getting those plants in the ground.

RED WINGED BLACKBIRD.
.
Red winged black bird, welcome to our yard!

"Hello, and will you share with me,

A word from up above!

Tell me what you hear and see,

Dare I miss a word?

O, how my heart began to sing,

Just to see you there.

And then I looked outside again,
(And what a pleasure rare,)

To see that you were not alone,

A flock of you were there!

When you spread those painted wings

Out looking for your nest,

How can I not then pray and sing,

Yet Heaven sings it best.

By Mary L. White.
...

Poem below by Robert Blake:

Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life, and bid thee feed,
By the stream and o'er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, woolly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?

Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,
Little Lamb, I'll tell thee.
He is called by thy name,
For He calls Himself a Lamb.

He is meek, and He is mild;
He became a little child.
I a child, and thou a lamb,
We are called by His name.

Little Lamb, God bless thee!
Little Lamb, God bless thee! .
...

I am runing a little late this morning , I should have been at Sara's Dog Training at least two hours ago, but I know that Misty and Oreo will understand. Sara will you explain to them that Dad is not feeling the very best this morning, and I do hope that they will make me smile. DAD.

She can't get the hang of Post-it Notes. Your customers come around only during her lunch period; peek around the door and ask, "Is the coast clear?" When she gets low on typing paper, and you tell her to use copy paper; she takes a blank piece of typing paper, puts it into the copy machine and makes 10 copies.

Eagles in a Storm

Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks? The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it.
The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm. When the storms of life come upon us - and all of us will experience them - we can rise above them by setting our minds and our belief toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us. We can allow God's power to lift us above them.
God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure and disappointment in our lives. We can soar above the storm.
Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it is how we handle them.

A hillbilly family took a vacation to New York City. One day, the father took his son into a large building. They were amazed by everything they saw, especially the elevator at one end of the lobby. The boy asked, "What's this, Paw?"The father responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life. I don't know what it is!"While the boy and his father were watching in wide-eyed astonishment, an old lady in a wheelchair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of lights above the walls light up. They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction. The walls opened again, and a beautiful twenty-four-year old woman stepped out.The father turned to his son and said, "Son, go get your maw!"

The mdel T Ford is the car that I learned to drive, the video brings back a lot of pleasent memories to me. DAD.
***************************************
Good Morning Sara, the video that you told me about is absolutely perfect. It makes me love those two Shelties more. I am looking at a picture of them that sits on my desk as I write. We all admire you and them.
.
Now let's all go to Sara's today at this address, Sara's Dog Training and see what is going on there. I know that we will all come away Smiling, I always do. DAD

Why it’s nice to be a dog.
.
No one expects you to take a bath every day.
Your friends never expect you to pay for lunch, dinner, or anything else for that matter.
When it’s raining, you can lie around the house all day and never worry about being fired.
You can wear a fur coat and no one thinks you’re insensitive.
Having big feet is considered an asset.
If you gain weight, it’s someone else’s fault.
No one tells you to wipe your nose because it’s wet.
No matter where you live, you own the place.
Your mate never complains because you whine.
Puppy love can last.

The joke below was furnished by Mary.
.
An aged farmer and his wife were leaning against the edge of their pig-pen when the old woman wistfully recalled that the next week would mark their golden wedding anniversary."Let's have a party, Homer," she suggested. "Let's kill a pig."The farmer scratched his grizzled head. " Gee, Ethel," he finally answered, "I don't see why the pig should take the blame for something that happened fifty years ago."




A few days ago I was looking at one of 'Oh Ya'-Ma's blogs and I was impressed by what I saw. So I wrote Ma and ask her if I could show them to you, and of course you know what she would say. I am going to let her tell you in her own words. DAD.

I would consider it a blessing to share my links. My hope is to brighten someones day somewhere along the way.

So often people just need a kind word to make a difference and I do try to do that.

My faith, my family and home are the important things in my life. Keeping in touch with my family was the main reason I started jouraling back on AOL so many years ago now. By sharing my good times and sometimes not so good, maybe I can help someone else too.

You are very inspiring to me each day sharing all those SMILES.

.
DAD,
I always seem to end up arriving late to your blog on work days. Hope you had a good day.I know you will stop by my blog tomorrow, and I think you are in for a special treat. I think this may be one of our best tricky t-day videos ever! Hope you like it. Sara :)
.
Thanks Sara, we are on the way, we clicked Sara's Dog Training and we are almost there. I know that I am going to smile. DAD
.
This joke below is from my Daughter Mary. Thanks Mary. DAD.
.
A letter from a mother to her son:

I write to let you know I am sill alive. I am writing slowly as I know you don't read fast.
You won't know the house when you come home - we moved. We had trouble moving, especially the bed - the man wouldn't let us take it in the taxi, and we were afraid we might wake up your father.



Your father has a nice new job and very responsible, He has about 500 people under him - he cuts the grass at the cemetery


Our neighbors, the Browns started keeping pigs. We got wind of it yesterday.
I got my appendix out and a dishwasher put in.


There is a washing machine in the new house here., but it don't work too good. Last week I put 14 shirts in the washer and pulled that chain. The whirled around real good, but then disappeared. I think something is wrong with the machine.


Your uncle Dick drowned last week in a whiskey vat at the distillery. Four of his work mates dived in to save him, but he fought them off bravely. We cremated his body the next day and just got the fire out this morning.


I went to the doctor with your father last week. The doctor put a small glass tube in my mouth and told me not to open it for ten minutes. Your father wanted to buy it from him.


It rained only twice last week - once for three days and once for four days.


I got a letter from the undertaker this morning. He said if we don't make up the installments on your grandmother's grave, up she comes.

Your loving mother,

Stella

P.S. I was going to send you $10.00, but I already had sealed the envelope, and the envelope wasn't this dirty when I mailed the letter.

The jokes in this blog today are furnished by my Daughter, Mary.

A couple had lived in the backwoods for over fifty years. To celebrate their fiftieth anniversary, they took a trip to a large city and checked into a plush hotel. As the bellman was showing them to their room, the woman said to the bellman, "We refuse to settle for such a small room. No windows, no bed, and no air conditioning." "But, madam!", replied the bellman. "Don't 'But madam' me," she continued. "You can't treat us like we're a couple of fools just because we don't travel much, and we've never been to the big city, and never spent the night at a hotel. I'm going to complain to the manager." "Madam," the bellman said, "this isn't your room; this is the elevator!"

Dad's Smile Album Smile for me this morning. DAD
