From The Heart

I don't understand! I just don't understand why this is happening. Why would a person lie to me?? Someone told me that they would not give up on our relationship. The person lied! They have given up! Why would anyone do that ..... to me?? Why God, why??? I know that I'm not perfect but, I don't deserve to be lied to! Maybe ... just maybe, I'm not skilled to understand!!!

As I was asking/telling myself over and over those words, a song came into my mind. A song that I had forgotten about. A song that I used to know by heart! A song that I KNOW God put in my heart! A song that I needed to hear again! Most (if not all) of y'all know it but, here it is:

My, Savior, My God!
By: Aaron Shust 

 I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed, what God has planned
I only know at His right hand
Stands one who is my Savior

I take Him at His word and deed
Christ died to save me; this I read
And in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my savior

That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior

Chorus (2x's)
My Savior loves, My Savior lives
My Savior's always there for me
My God: He was, my God; He is
My God is always gonna be

Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring;
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior

That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior

Kate's Wet Hair Wrap (TM)

Momma and Amy thought that this was a good idea

 Sorry about the smirk .... Momma told me to not smile .... I couldn't help it ~ 

After I get done washing my hair, I take a hand towel and put it over my shoulder. I then flip my hair onto the towel.

 Then, I roll up the towel like so ...... and I secure the 2 ends with a hair scrunchie!!


 This is how it looks from the side

You know it is hot when .....

1. The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground

2. The trees are whistling for the dogs

3. The best parking space is determined by shade instead of distance

4. Hot water now comes out of BOTH taps

5. You can make sun tea instantly

6. You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron

7. The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly

8. You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car

9. You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window

10. You actually burn your hand opening the car door

11.  You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30am

12. Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is: "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"

13. You realize that asphalt has a liquid state

14. The potatoes cook underground so, all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper, sour cream (of course), diced onions and a few servings of chilli.

15 Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs

16. The cows are giving evaporated milk

I highly recommend ordering and reading the Dixie Living Magazine! Their articles are funny and the junks are clean!! Locals order it but, I have seen readers from Louisiana, Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Maine and Massachusetts and others! Basically from North to South and East to West!

Were do I begin??? What do I say/tell???

I was so worried that when I got off FB that I'd have nothing to do but, I have been sooooo very busy!!!

(June 23-July 9) ~ My niece was here for 2 weeks then (which is why I got off FB amongst other things). Then, my brother in law and sister, sister in law and brother where here for a week end. We had a full house. We were/are blessed!

My brother and sister in law have been down here once since then. They are moving back home!!! My sister in law had a job interview. She has a job at a local school!

I know this is jumbled but, I hope y'all follow me! I'm so happy and I just received some exciting news!!! :D No, it ha nothing to do with me ( :-( )but, with some friends of mine.

I shall be on FB soon!

Oh So True ~ Part 2

17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call

18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well

19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses 
begin with Miller Lite than Kay

20. I wish Google maps had a "avoid ghetto" option

21. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

22. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in

23. The only time I I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text

24. I have a hard time deciphering the line between boredom and hunger

25. How may times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word a word they said

26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front.  Stay strong, brothers and sisters

27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty Pants? Pants never get dirty and you can wear them forever

28. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber and dumber every year?

29. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far

30. As a driver, I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists. 

31. Sometimes I'll look at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is

32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and pinning the tail on the donkey ~ but I'd bet my rear end everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

Oh, So True ~ Part 1

Probably because they've run through my mind atleast once ..........

1. I think that part of a best friends job should be to immediately clear you're computers history when you die

 2. Nothing is more aggravating than that moment during an argument when you realize that you're wrong

3.I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger

4. There is a great need for a sarcasm font

5. How are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map quest really needs to start with #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I was atleast kinda tired

10. Bad decisions make good stories

11.You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection ..... again

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out  of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my 10 page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ~ ever

15. I hate when I miss a call by the last ring but when I immediately call back, it rings 9 times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste
