Woolie Party Time

Morning Sweet Friends,

Oh mannie day life can be soo overwhelming ..
And in those moments, hours and very hard days
I sometimes catch myself patting my own back. 
Poor me..
Yep the pity party begins.
Sorry Big GUY.
I have so much to be thankful for..
( and I do thank you for every lil thing)

Thank you Lord for the wake up call.
When I lose my grip you never let me go.
You are my peace, strength and joy.
And for goodness sakes....
There is a handsome woolie punkin on my lap along with my Pal Meow Meow.
Work is done for today and I get to play.
Yep the great thing about working from home is you can start at 5:00 am.
I do love the wee quiet morning hours.

Dreaming of beautiful Fall days...

Woolie Ole Baskets of Love
Me & Meow Meow

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set me feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our GOD. Many will see,
fear and put their trust in the Lord.
Psalm 40:2-3

Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 63:7

Thank you Dad above that when I look to you..
You turn my grumbles into a song.

True Love..

(His dad was his best-man)

My cup runneth over..

 My Cole....

My Alicia and Monkey George..

My heart is full and our Families love just flows...
I am blessed.
I will treasure that day in my heart forever.

Woolie Blessings

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor;
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls and
had no one to help them up.
Also if two lie down together,they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

He thrives before the sun, and his shoots spread out over his garden.

Ball Blue Book

Good Morning Sweet Friends.

Did you know there is a new Ball Blue Book this year?
Tah Dah!
The 37th Edition of the Ball Book
is in my house.
Thanks to the Jarden Home Brands.
They asked me to review their new book.
Well yeah!
The review is in.
Perfect timing too.
My son is getting married August 1st.
My sweet Aunt Ne and I made 200 jars of strawberry jam.
140 of them will be Wedding favors.
Made with love.

I can't begin to tell you how many quarts of strawberries we used.
Lets just say lots and almost 50lbs. of sugar baby.
Ne and I made a great team.
Boy did we have fun.
(It was also National Doughnut Day)
Oh my...

My Ne has shared her love of Ball products and keeps teaching me more every year.
Preserving and making new treasured memories is my idea of happiness.
No flabby beans for us.
Grow garden grow we are ready to try some new recipes.
The new Ball Book has 75 new recipes.
Thanks Jarden Homes for a wonderful new book and letting me participate again this year.
You rock!

Canning Strawberry Jam Love
Your Biggest Fans,
Granny T & Ne

All 200 jars of strawberry jam turned out perfectly.

Be Joyful Always

Woolie Strong

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Philippians 4:8 (NIV)♥️♥️♥️

 I never would have thought you could associate the word STRONG as lovely or pure..but it truly is praiseworthy and excellent when Strength is found in Him . Though I am terribly weak HE makes me STRONG when facing the monsters and mountains in this life.  

(you should see my muscles in HIM)

You are STRONG

Woolie Strong in HIM

Animal Crackers Please!!!

Animal crackers in my soup
Monkeys and rabbits loop the loop
Gosh oh gee! but they have fun
Munching and gobbling animal crackers.
They come running and prancing along the fields when I yell coookies..
They are such joy to me.
So much fun and always make me smile.

This working again besides for my caring for the home job is hard.
I start to growl and grumble.
Moan and complain.
Then these dear sweeties..
Oh my stars..

I try and send my family a morning scripture text or lil prayer every morning.
Something to make them smile or just encourage them.
Cause boy can life be hard.
This is from this mornings.
Most days I don't hear anything back.
This morning I got four texts back..
I guess they could relate.

Create in me a clean heart, O God renew a right spirit within me..
 Psalm 51:10 

Father above wash over us with your peace and joy. Wipe away the grouchy ungrateful cobwebs right out of my head and heart.
Thank you for your Love even when we are growling and complaining through another day.
Thank you for this new day and all the blessings it holds.
With a very grateful woolie heart
