On recent movies

An 80s flick that’s really not worthy of mention, but it helped me to put a dent into some hand-sewing I want to finish.   “Dune” wasn’t that fabulous either. Yet, one of the reasons I like winter… I actually take the time to enjoy audio-visuals.

“10,000 BC” which I really did like.  Same peeps made “2012” which is currently out at theaters.  My Mom and brother are currently out viewing Cameron’s “Avatar”… I wasn’t in a social-mood.

“A Good Year”… which takes place in a beautiful town in France as well as some in London.

“Kingdom of Heaven” was WAY better than I expected… in fact, I plan on watchin’ it again on a bigger screen… totally wish I had seen this one on the 40′ screen.

“Family Man” with N.Cage was a GREAT view.

A friend loaned me her DVD sets of not only SG-1, but also Atlantis for the last few years. All movies and series are FINALLY finished. I haven’t even put a dent in my Mom’s collections.  Ah well, it’s good to have goals.

on feathers

The petals on a gerbera daisy remind me of a bird’s feathers.

Fluffy and beautiful.

Nature is quite wonderful.

on winter beauty

It finally got above freezing today… I was glad for the walk outside,

but I will miss the snow that’s been on the trees and ground since Friday night.

Beautiful snow.

Even more beautiful when it doesn’t make it on the driveway/roads.


Update: 12-25-09

I bet kiddos are happy this morning with the snow for Christmas!

The only thing that made me leave home was Mom.  She was expectin’ me for dinner.  I would have never driven on icy/snowy roads for anyone else.

Be happy about it!

Be very glad!

For a great reward awaits you in heaven.

And remember,

the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.

I’ve joined Facebook!

A friend of a friend suggested it… I was on it briefly months ago.

Recently I decided to give it a try and have re-connected with a lot of old friends…

especially high school. I haven’t attended any reunions, so this has been a great way to learn what people have been up to.

One of my friends from college is all the way in Japan! I lost track of her after she moved to Hawaii.

And with a few other more local friends, there is just not enough time in the day to write old-school letters or chat on the phone…

and I’m not sure I’ll ever be into texting…

So I’m truly glad for Facebook…

On the O. T.

I think sometimes the old testament gets a bad rap…

here are a few VERY cool verses:

Neh 8:10

The joy of the LORD

is your strength!


Numbers 6:24-26

May the LORD bless you and protect you.

May the LORD smile on you

and be gracious to you.

May the LORD show you His favor and give you His peace.


Ps 119:105

Your Word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.


Is 26:3

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You,

all whose thoughts are fixed on You!


Joel 2:32

Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.


Prov 22:4

… True humility and fear of the LORD lead to riches, honor, and long life.


Prov 11:25

The generous will prosper;

those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

on responsibility

Matthew 25:29 NLT

To those who use well what they are given,

even more will be given,

and they will have an abundance.

But from those who do nothing,

even what little they have will be taken away.

The more I re-read this one, the more stuff (potentials) that stuck out to me…

like $…

if you tithe AND use what $ you have well,

then you will be given more $

if you don’t tithe, etc… then you’ll lose $

Just a thought…
