Hi Folks ~ Hope your weekend is going well so far. I finished another beaded heart pin, which I am giving to a long-time friend. We met 27 years ago when we had antique shops with our husbands. Life has brought us both changes, but God has been and is seeing us through them.
Thank you all for your kinds comments on my last post. My faith in God is in tact, has been, it’s just that I am a worrier, anxious about things and always have been, but more so since losing my dear husband. I have been drawn closer to God these past 33 1/2 months, I just need to relax and give him all of my burdens big or small. Nothing is too hard for him. We don’t always get what we want in this life, and things don’t always work out like we think they should, but we can know this, God is taking care of things for our good and his honor and glory. We will understand it all one day.
As to my orchids, none of them are inside, I don’t have a single plant growing indoors. My orchids grow will-nilly in the gardens, in the trees, hanging here and there and they seem content. They are mostly in the shade or semi shade. When we do have temps around freezing, which is hardly ever, I try to put them in a protected space.
The little kitten is still around, and of course, you all know why, it has a ‘sucked’ FlowerLady into putting out food. It is a tiny thing, and meows when I talk to it, and it is hidden from view. One of my blogging commenters, Suzie of ‘Persimmon Moon Cottage’, suggested the name ‘Rosebud’ after the poem I had quoted about a kitten. Well, I thought that a great idea or a variation on the theme, so have already started calling it ‘Rosey Posey’ if it is a girl, and if it’s a boy he will be ‘Rose Buddy’. It will know it’s name. When it is big enough, and if I decide to keep it, I’ll have to take it to get fixed, hopefully it will be my sweet little friend by then. Our four other girls were all feral little babies on this property and we won them over. I’ll keep you posted.
Another blogging friend posted a cute ‘peanutized’ picture of herself on her blog, Beads & Birds. I went to the Peanut website here and went through the little fun process and came up with a peanutted version of myself, with what I had to choose from.
Get yourself Peanutted here.
Love, hugs & prayers for all of you,
