Maybe it’s the rain, I don’t know. I can see that some of my friends get to go outside. I’m happy for them, but this makes me sad ’cause I only get to look out the window.The other night I was so happy for a little while when I saw this black kitty just outside the window. I don’tknow if it was a girl or boy but I really enjoyed our visit. ‘She’ took a pic of me and tried to get a pic of mynew friend, but it didn’t work. I’m so hoping my new friend comes back.Today some of Andy’s family came by and stayed for a little while. Andy always plays with me, but he didn’t come. I came into the living-room, but didn’t stay so I went backto my room. Maybe Andy will come next time and maybe the sun will come out tomorrow.Until next time, Kassey

MARRIAGE1) Marry in haste, and repent in leisure.2) Did you hear about the couple who got married at an early urge?3) Those who hope for a happy marriage will do well to remember that in ‘wedding’ the ‘we’ comes before the ‘I’.4) I have learned that only two things are necessary to keep one’s wife happy. First, let her think she’s having herway. And second, let her have it. ~~ Lyndon B. Johnson5) After a few years of marriage a man can look at a woman without seeing her, and a woman can see right througha man without looking at him.6) Women who henpeck their husbands are apt to find them with other chicks.7) A man who gives in when he is wrong is wise. A man who gives in when he is right is married.8) Success in marriage is not so much a matter of finding the right person as it is ‘being’ the right person.9) Troubles in marriage often start when a man is so busy earning his salt that he forgets his sugar.10) Even when a marriage is made in heaven, the maintenance work has to be done here on earth.11) Many a domestic explosion has been touched off by an old flame.12) Woman to marriage councelor : "That’s my side of the story, now let me tell you this."13) Marriage occurs when a man gets hooked on his own line.14) Adam and Eve had an ideal marriage. He didn’t have to hear about all the men she could have married,and she didn’t hear how well his mother cooked.15) If you are a child of God and marry a child of the devil, you will be sure to have constant trouble withyour father-in-law.Drink from your own well, my son —- be faithful and true to your wife. Be happy, yes, rejoice in the wifeof your youth. ~~ Proverbs 5 :15 , 18The man who finds a wife finds a good thing ; she is a blessing to him from the Lord.~~ Proverbs 18 : 22*************************************************************************************************************************************

Hello, Everyone. I hope you all are having a wonderful Lord’s Day. This is where I started and hope to remain. Last night , Kassey got so excited when this black cat appeared outside the window. I got a pic of her looking out and tried to capture her new friend, but reflections prevented this. I hope you enjoy the pic below.

The Lord hates the gifts of the wicked but The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hearsdelights in the prayers of his people. the prayers of the rightous.Proverbs 15: 8 Proverbs 15 :29Notice on highschool bulletin board : " In the event of nuclear attack, all bans on prayer on this campus will be lifted."Now there’s even a "dial a prayer" for atheists. You call a number and nobdy answers.Many prayers go to heaven’s dead — letter office for want of suffient direction.True prayer is a way of life, not just in case of an emergency.Who goes to bed and does not pray, maketh two nights to every day.If your day is hemmed in prayer, it is less likely to unravel.A prayer in a simplist definition is really a wish turned Godward.There will always be prayer in public schools—– as long as there are final exams to take. ~~ B Norman FrischPrayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the night.He who cannot reach the mission field on his feet can reach it on his knees.Every step in the progress of missions is directly traceable to prayer. It has been the preperation for triumphand the secret for all success. ~~ A.T PiersonWhen praying, don’t give God instructions. God listens to prayer, not advice.Courage is fear that has said its prayers.Prayer is the stop that keeps you going.If your knees are knocking, kneel on them.Many a man kept going straight because his mother bent her knees in prayer.The one concern of the devil is to keep the Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless works, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at wisdom, but trembles when we pray. ~~ Samuel Chadwick

I’m happy to have seen my TN Grands over the weekend. I have pics, of course. I don’thave this often enough, but I’ll settle for the time I do have with them. They are reallyenergetic, ages 7, 8, 9 yrs. old. Wow, I had mine close, but not this close. And they areall male. Of course for them, it’s good to be close in age. I do wish that my TN son andhis family lived here close…. maybe one day. (Birth order, boy, girl, boy)One day, not too long ago…seems like ages though, K-8yr. old Grand-daughter, 7 yrs. then, came inthe kitchen and looked me in the eye and told me when she got be grown that she mightcome live with me ‘if you’re still living’ . This would be wonderful . Even though I’d be anold lady ( hey, I’m old now…lol ) by then, but,it sure would be nice. If not, I hope to be in Paradise.They stayed in a Motel for the swimming pool. I got pics of them when I took them some waffles.They love my waffles as Kassey mentioned some time back. Kassey stayed on her pillow whilethey were here.Kassey sure has been whiny this AM. But I reckon I satisfied her every whim. I have to go throughthe apt. looking. She had left me an upchuck…yall know why from my blogs. Also, I had somethingon her thingy so she couldn’t get in the window. So now , she is resting in front of the window whileI blog. She is my relentless boss, but a joy to this old GG……Blessed Monday Everyone, GG

Proverbs 13 :19 It is pleasant to see plans develop. That is why fools refuse to give them upeven when they are wrong.Proverbs 16: 1 We can make our plans, but the final outcome is in God’s hands.Proverbs 16: 9 We should make plans—– counting on God to direct us.He who aims at nothing is sure to hit it.Plan ahead—— it wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.Light your lamp before night overtakes you.What is planned ahead of time can be done quickly.He who plans his program for tomorrow takes confusion out of the day.When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.Make long- range plans as if you are going to live forever, and live today as if it were your last day on earth.God has no problems —— only plans. ~ ~ Corrie Ten BoomThe plans are man’s ; the odds are God’s.One of the greatest things about life is not so much where we stand as what direction we are going.Don’t brag about your plans for tomorrow—– wait and see what happens. Proverbs 27 : 1He who lays no plans for the future will have an empty old age.Hang your basket where you can reach it.When you’re dying of thirst, it’s too late to think about digging a well. ~ ~ Japanese proverb

It’s so very nice this AM after stormy weather last night. It’s 75 F at the present and cloudy.The bad weather was all around us and we only got a little rain. I’m so glad ‘J ‘ (Sis) and I movedfrom our hometown, because it seems that their weather is the wildest and so scary.WE have been kept safe so far , truly Blessed . And the closet can be cleaned out quickly .Because the desktop is near a window, I got on Sony ‘Pinkie’ with Kassey by my side.She is staying close today too. She may know more what to expect than the weather-man..lol Anyhow, we hope it’ll be calm today.I made that good ole Southern dish , eggs and grits, for breakfast. I had 2 boiledeggs and cut them in my hot buttered grits. Instead of toast, I just put it all on ashingle. It was good, of course ,with coffee.I’m not a typist and I haven’t a clue how this print changed. I ‘ll probably blog again fromone of my fave books . They are so much more interesting than I. By nature, I’m not a big talker.Until next time, I wish you all a Blessed day.

If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself. ~ Proverbs 3 : 4-5If you must choose, take a good name rather than great riches ; for to be held in loving esteem is betterthan silver and gold. ~ Proverbs 22: 1REPUTATIONReputation is made in a moment ; character is built in a lifetime.Your reputation can be damaged by the opinion of others. Only you yourself can damagecharacter.Take care of your character, and your reputation will take care of itself.Few things are more dangerous to a person’s reputation than having nothing to do and plenty of time in which to do it.Reputation is what men say about you on your tombstone ; character is what angels say about you before the throne of God. ~ William Hershey DavisLive in such a way that when death comes the mourners will outnumber the cheering section.Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation , for it is better to be alone than in bad company. ~ George WashingtonThere are two very difficult things in the world. One is to make a name for oneself and the other is to keep it.~ Walter SchumannA good reputation is more valuable than the most expensive perfume . ~ Eccl. 7: 1Your reputation is made by searching for things that can’t be done—– and doing them.

Quote It’s a beautiful Saturday, a good day to sleep in. She did have to get up , cause I needed breakfast. As you all know I have to have her by my side when I eat, a rule I made. Oh, she’s so easy…mew mew. Well, I did sleep in our bedroom last night after she put the pillowcase on my pillow. And she was so happy and told me I could sleep next to her if I wanted to…. no no no , not enough room for two on that twin bed. After I’m asleep, I don’t want any interuptions, like the Old girl turning over or getting up to go to the little room. I’m sure she’ll put another one up after the re-arranging is like she wants it.
I’m so blessed to have a bed inside to sleep on and have someone to care for me and love me the way she does. She is so good to me and I am so blessed that she picked me out of all the other kitties at the shelter. They told her my age and name and I got to keep it. Imagine having to be called by another name as old as I am. This is just another way that she loves me. It’s hard on a kitty being brought to a shelter to either die or hoping to be adopted. There were so many of us and she picked me!
Well, it’s getting cloudy now, but still a nice Saturday when you’re a blessed kitty. We are expecting Andy and Sheila in little while. He always plays with me. So, I’ll be in the window watching for them. Until next time, this is Kassey, hoping all my kitty friends are healthy and happy. Miss Catt, I hope you’re feeling better. And, Patches, I hope you’re recovering well. I want to thank you all for visiting our space and leaving comments. Luv, KasseyMy fellow feline friends, my human has been changing things again. I watched her as she unloadedher bathroom closet and filled up mine. She said she was utilizing more space, whatever that means.Mine did have more room than hers, before now. But being a cat, I don’t understand why she does this.She’s always moving things around and this bothers me. I followed after her while she was carrying thesethings to my closet. She told me she knew I didn’t understand why she was doing. Now really, does she think I’m just a dumb little cat? I could see what she was doing and I didn’t like it. There’s one shelf with nothing on it…..no telling what’ll be put there.I’m seeing a lot of birds now and it’s really exciting. We still don’t have a bird feeder yet, but she said she just might sprinkle some seeds on the ground. She also told me there are rabbits here , but I’ve been napping, too much i guess.It was real stormy last night and the storm radio went off again. It’s kind of scary to be asleep when this happens. She got up and turned it off and went back to bed. God spared us once again. He sure is good to us and deserves all the credit. Until next time, my feline friends…..Blessings Always, Kassey

The longer I live the more I am convinced that the one thing worth living for and dying for is the privilege
of making someone more happy and more useful. No man who ever does anything to lift his fellows ever makes a sacrifice. ~~ Booker T. Washington
There is a loftier ambition than merely to stand high in the world. It is to stoop down and lift those around us a little higher. ~~ Henry Van Dyke
There is no happiness in having and getting, but only in giving. Half the world is on the wrong scent in the pursuit of happiness. ~~ F. W. Gunsaulus
I slept, and I dreamed that life was all joy. I woke, and saw that life was but service. I served, and discovered that service was joy. ~~ Rabindranath Tagore
What do we live for, if not to make life less difficult to each other? ~~ George Eliot
No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of it for another. ~~ Charles Dickens
If you sit down at set of sun and count the acts that you have done,
And counting, find one self-denying deed, one word that eased the
heart of him who heard—-
One glance most kind, that fell like sunshine where it went—–
Then you may count that day well spent. ~~ George Elliot
When people are serving , life is no longer meaningless. ~~ John W. Gardner
We ought to do good to others as simply and as naturally as a horse runs, or a bee
makes honey, or a vine bears grapes season after season without thinking of the
grapes it has borne. ~~ Markus Aurelius
Even if it’s a little thing, do something for those who have need of help, something
for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it. ~~ Albert Schweitzer
When we serve, we rule;
When we give, we have;
When we surrender ourselves, we are victors. ~~ John Henry Newman
Have you ever had your day suddenly turn sunshiny because of a cheerful word? Have you ever
wondered if this could be the same world, because someone has been unexpectedly kind to you?
You can make today the same for somebody. It is only a question of a little imagination, a little
time and trouble. Think now, "What can I do today to make someone happy?"—- old persons, children,
servants —- even a bone for the dog, or sugar for the bird ! Why not? ~~ M. D. Babcock
Kassey has something to add to this blog….
Why not make your cat happy by remembering to put a pillowcase back on her pillow ? Today, she
put a nice clean pillowcase on my contour pillow in our bedroom. So I hopped right up there. I
think she got the picture….. and now maybe I’ll make her happy and sleep in our room tonight.
~~ Kassey ~~
