Genocide of Christians

If this does not apply to you, you are free to "go in peace". :)

"We are the family of Christ. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it. Families help each other. 'By this,' Jesus said, 'everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.' As we help our persecuted brothers and sisters, they feel the love of Christ toward them, and their enemies see that there is a true God in the Middle East."
We can help...

# World Help    The Body of Christ is suffering.

# Franklin Graham-

Friday night, I will appear with Greta Van Susteren on Christians Under Attack, a special that will air at 7 p.m. Eastern on the FOX News Channel. I’m encouraging everyone to watch this important program that will shine the spotlight on how those who bear the Name of Christ are suffering around the world.

*Update.Saturday-I'm sorry I didn't post this in time to watch Rev. Graham but if you go to Fox News online and type in Christians Under Attack in the search box it will take you where you can choose to see the video.
#VOM Voice of the Martyrs has a cool t-shirt (I am "N")  Half of the price directly helps persecuted Christians in Iraq.

Giving Thanks

It rained on us!!!

#So the first thing I am thankful for is an inch of rain. We need every drop. And I am thankful for every drop.

#That my children and grandchildren are protected by Gods mighty hand.
Which reminds me of the time my 2 oldest grandsons were with me and after forgetting to stop and get gas I told them we needed to pray that God would get us to a station before we ran out, on the Interstate. When I saw that, yes, we were going to make it to one, I said "thank you God for making sure we didn't run out of gas." One of them immediately said "oh, we ran out, and God pushed us." And the other one said "with His mighty hand." They were both 4 at the time. :D

#I'm thankful, as always, for our children bringing up our grandchildren to love and serve the Lord. NOTHING could make me happier!

#I'm thankful for all the comforts God allows us to enjoy. Even though I sometimes say "why me???". As in, who am I to deserve this? I try to never take any of it for granted. And pray that I never hold anything so tightly that it would hurt to let it go if He asks me to.

#Bamboo starts that my husband dug from a bar ditch on his way home from work because he remembered me saying I wanted some for my "in progress" pond. And for him digging the holes for them. ;)

#Birds singing outside the window. I am sure they are thanking their creator for the rain too.

Have a great next week. And don't forget to be thankful.

Giving Thanks Friday (on Sunday)

Oops, I'm late this week. I was enjoying having my husband home for a change and totally forgot. Not to be happy, but to write it here. :D
This week I'm thankful for:

# Having my husband around for a whole week! He got lots done on his own "to do" list and that makes him happy, so it makes me happy.

# Good news on some medical tests.

# Cooler temps. High 80's, low 90's is definitely a start to cooler weather.

# Hearing and seeing grandchildren playing and hollering in the pool. They can do both for hours. ;)

# Coffee in the morning, hot tea at night.

Have a great week and don't forget to be thankful!

Giving Thanks Friday

A sweet blogger always has a Giving Thanks Friday on her BLOG and shares things she is thankful for that week.
I will be sharing as well. Thankfulness really is a key to true happiness and contentment.

This week I am thankful for:

1. My sweet grandson getting the cast off his arm. Now he can swim for real. :)

2. A sweet surprise for my husband when he found out he now has 6 weeks PTO every year!!

3.Cool mornings and evenings even though it's still around 100 daily.

4. My husband only has a few bruises (and bruised ego) after getting bucked off a horse while breaking her. (saddles fault, not his) You land harder when you're over 60!

5. A full day spent with my daughter. A little shopping. A little eating.  A lot of driving. :)

Have a great weekend. And don't forget to be thankful. :D

Thank you.

If you are a believer I ask for prayer for a sweet blogger lady. Please click HERE and take just a few minutes to go to her blog and read her prayer request dealing with her husbands last days.
I believe  lifting each other up in prayer is the most precious thing we can do for each other.
Thank you.

Sharing from Tanzania trip 2010.

On the prowl.

Did someone say "CHEETAH???"

Zebra for lunch?

Baboon babies

 Making faces for the camera is fun no matter where you are.

Candy from a stranger? Umm, no thanks.

Living is hard.

Beauty even in the hard places.

Construction on the high rise. Yikes!!!

My favorite faces.

Another cheetah sighting. Every guide wants nothing more than their passengers to see it all!!!

Safari patrol?

It's no fun living next to road construction!!!

Beautiful Maasi ladies. Mother, daughter, daughter in law and granddaughter.

Sometimes I miss It

I love our sunsets but sometimes I am busy cooking or cleaning up after, or whatever, and before I know it it's dark and I've missed another one. I probably have more pictures of sunsets since we moved here though than anything else. Tonight as I was passing a west facing window my eye caught a glimpse of orange and if you know anything about me, I love orange. :) This is what I was blessed to see.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Psalm 19:1

Sweet dreams.
