On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Wednesday Hodgepodge and Living Strong

 1. Do you (or did you used to) watch talk shows? 

Seldom. When I was in high school, I thought it was fun to stay up late and watch Johnny Carson. Talk shows are boring as most of the time it’s a celebrity very focused on themselves.

Which are or were your favorite?

I have enjoyed listening to some talk shows such as James Dobson‘s focus on the family.

 2. Would you describe yourself as resilient? 

Yes, I believe I am very resilient. I have experienced the loss of two husbands, breast cancer, going through bone marrow transplant with my brother, (me the donor), the loss of both my parents at young ages, and adjusting to being a stepmom. They were two of the best kids ever, but it still was a big adjustment. If so what do you think makes you that way? It is only by the grace of God that I have had strength. I have none on my own. If you answered no explain why?

 3. What parts of life have surprised you the most? 

That I am still here? Having lost my parents at younger ages, I guess it surprises me sometimes that I have made it to an older age. Explain.

 4. Why do you live where you live? 

After 50 years of living in one state, I moved to another to be near my siblings.

 5. A memory from this week that made you smile? 

Most every day, the Facebook memories that pop up make me smile because I have so many good memories. Any time I look at a picture on the refrigerator of my Dear Heart, or the grandkids, it always brings a smile.


(Noah had been smiling until word came we would take a pic!! There's always one sad sack in the bunch! The pic below of my sister's party is evidence of that. I was the pouty one and she was crying! Makes me think of the song that came much later, It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To!)

Today’s memory on Facebook was a throwback Thursday of my sister's birthday. Just this weekend, we also gathered together to say happy birthday to her. She turned the big 70, but she didn't cry about it.

 6. Insert your own random thought here.

This has been a very busy week. Over the weekend, some of us from our Sunday school class picked up paintbrushes and rollers and painted curbs for emergency vehicles and delivery vehicles, as well as a shuffleboard court for a local apartment complex. The apartment building houses disabled persons over 62 years old. These pics don't show the extent of the amount of painting! Whole lotta curbs!!!

This morning I’m working on the garage sale for the boys home in our area. The garage sale will benefit the boys home. And tonight is Awanas’ night, so it’s a full day all day.

Our ukelele group is singing again today. We are singing on a regular basis at one of the assisted living homes here and it is so much fun. Our practices each week are filled with singing and lots of laughter. We have been invited to sing a few days before Christmas at a residence for senior citizens in a Jewish assisted living. The dilemma there is that we have been asked not to sing anything about Jesus so as not to offend anyone. We don’t like that idea. Anyone have a thought or opinion they might want to share about this? Please, be kind.

I've typed this all rather hurriedly, as I am getting ready to leave.
