Sunday Scripture ~ Palm Sunday 2023

Happy Palm Sunday as we head toward coming to the other side of the Cross on Easter. Thankful that I’m on this side of the Cross and aware of why Jesus came and to die for us. 


The Lepers had a serious, painful desease. How grateful they must have been for the relief of healing even if they didn’t voice it. How much better to have said thank you, and be appreciative. We should be mindful of the large and the small things in life that we are grateful for. Most come from Jesus even when we may not realize it. Others may come from family or friends. Be grateful of their kindness, and say thank you. They do kind things because they love you same as Jesus does.

Thankful for God’s son who came, who died on the cross for me. Amazing thought.

Enjoy your day, and week.

Incline your ear, and come unto to me; hear and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. Behold I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call you upon him while he is near.

Monster At The End of The Book

The Monster at the end of this Book

Author, Jon Stone   Illustrated by Mike Smollin Publisher: Western Publishing Co

My daughter loved this book when she was little.

Little Golden Books have been a child’s favorite for years, and what parent doesn’t have a few on their child’s book shelves? They’re small enough for little hands when they begin their reading adventures, but until then, what fun it is to read the stories to your child.

‘The Monster At The End of This Book’ is one of those books that is a delight to read, and will have the child laughing and waiting in anticipation. Reading the book is so much fun if the words are punctuated with highs and lows of the voice as the author intended.

The adventure begins as the first page starts in large caps with “WHAT DID THAT SAY?”, meaning the title. Grover expresses concern as he anticipates finding a monster at the end as the reader keeps turning the pages. Grover says he is so scared of monsters! The book continues with Grover pleading for the reader not to turn the pages so the end of the book and the monster won’t be reached. As the reader turns the page, Grover litterally shouts ‘YOU TURNED THE PAGE!” (When that page is read as intended with a shout, children are sure to giggle.)

Grover goes on to explain that the reader must not understand that by turning the pages, you will arrive at the end of the book and there is a monster at the end of the book.

Children love when a book is read with enthusiasm, especially if you do it like acting out a play. This book is perfect for that since the author wrote the pages as they were intended to be read with the soft parts and loud parts.

The book is written by Jon Stone and illustrated by Mike Smollin who approach a story from the angle that a child’s imagination can run wild as they wonder what a monster at the end will look like or if the monster will actually jump from the pages.

To find out who is the monster at the end of the book, check yours out a local library or book store.

Have a fun read with kids always,


Finally!! A Vacation

It has been years since I’ve gone on a vacation. But, last month my sweet daughter and SIL invited me to go on vacation with them. The trip was to Florida. Actually, the last vacation trip I took was when my daughter took me to California, and Also….the first time I’d ever rode on an airplane. Always said that I never would, but it was amazing. I shocked myself because also always said, I could never, ever look out the window of an airplane or want to be seated beside one. But, the adventurer in me just had to. It did not disappoint.

But, on to this year. They took me to Florida. The beautiful white sand was so soft like powder. I thought at my age, it would be way too hot for me so I really was hesitant. But, even though it was sweltering, the wind that blows across the water was amazing, and cooling enough. Anyway, it was just the medicine that I needed after losing my hubby, then the shutdowns of the pandemic. Kids are amazing.

Was a bit rainy for sun soaking so we enjoyed lunch by the ocean and a drink.

Happy August, and thanks for visiting. Leave a hello or comment so I can come visit your blog.


Love Letters

Who doesn’t enjoy a Love Letter once in a while from their soulmate. Back in my day, we wrote notes and letters. I married my HS sweetie, and still have notes we wrote back and forth in HS. I also have letters we wrote when we would be apart after we married. Was so fun to find and read years later what as young people we wrote to each other. Silly sometimes, and serious other times. They are priceless to me.

In today’s world of technology, we can still write love letters via email or text messges. Just print them off, and one day in the future, you’ll have them to look back at your young self.


Sweet Goodbyes

It’s dark now, the kids have gone. As I look around the room, remnants remain of evidence they came ~ toys lay on the floor that won’t be played with anymore. Kids grow, they move away, but now and then they come again.

The rooms lighten up again with laughter and busyness. Toys are brought out for grandbabies to play, the giggles are delightful.

Time is up, bags are packed and off they go again ~ taking with them our hugs and well wishes.

If only kids could stay, but they’ve grown and must go on their way to the adult life they’ve made. We smile with pride and say good-bye as our Love goes out the door.
