Thankful Thursday - Tradition

Wednesday, December 28, 2011


Christmas eve was very lovely. I got to see most my huge family, and my youngest daughter and her husband made a simply delightful dinner.They did an amazing job. Aaron (s-i-l) led the family in a beautiful prayer, the children played and entertained and family drifted in (mostly in) and out for the evening. Ruby, my daughter, had the children dressed up in their Sunday best, which truly added to the festive spirit and maybe even improved their behavior. :-) L`Mear and L`Mirrah, who are their twins, were dancing when we arrived and nicely obliged me in allowing me to photograph them.

They will soon be 6. 

1.Do you think they will be embarrassed by this picture in 10 to 15 years? I thought they were cute. 

I used to take pictures of my children when they were babies. The pictures were of them nude after a bath, and they were lying on their tummies. A couple of them were upset when they saw them. I think they are cute! In fact maybe I should go browsing to see if they are still there. Some of my pictures have mysteriously disappeared. hmm 

2. Did your parents save embarrassing pictures of you as a child?

Soft as a Kitten

Sunday, December 25, 2011


I love thrift stores for more than one reason.


They offer useful things at a fraction of the original cost and they offer unique items you would probably not find anywhere else! Which is a better incentive?

This painting is framed in a perfect frame, scratch-less and the painting is adorable. It is signed HarriSon. I am not familiar with the artist, but he or she is good, and bottom line the price was just $.79. The cashier was kind of surprised at the deal when I brought it up to check out. I love a good deal. Don't you?

A Slick Snowman

Sunday, December 18, 2011



He wasn't nimble
He wasn't quick
But the snowman thought
He was real slick
Until the sun came 
out to play
And ruined Mr. Frosty's
day! ~135~

The bonus word is nimble. This is a very fun meme.  Why not try your hand, it's fun and Design 215 makes the counting easier. You can sum it up with 140 characters or words, your choice.


Thanks so much for your visit. Thanks for joining Succinctly yours. Take care and God bless you and yours this Christmas holiday!

It had been a year since their divorce and he had been diligent in his efforts to get them to talk to one another. His diligence paid off! ~138~

Letter from God to Women

Saturday, December 3, 2011





This post linked to Shadow Shot Sunday.

Are you like me in that there are times when you feel painfully inadequate in achieving what it is you would like to do or being what you would like to be? 

Someone sent me an email message years ago when I was experiencing some of these very feelings and I printed it and saved it because it touched my heart. I hope you will let me share it with you. You each en-body some very special qualities and perhaps you haven't taken time lately to take stock of them?

This letter is "from God and written" with women in mind. Note -I have not seen God write this letter, but the words are loving and encouraging just like I would imagine His would be:

When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being. 
When I created man, I formed him and breathed life into his nostrils.
But you, woman, I fashioned after I breathed the life into man because your nostrils are too delicate.

I allowed a deep sleep to come over him so I could patiently and perfectly fashion you.

Man was put to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity.

From one bone, I fashioned you. I chose the bone that protects man's life. I chose the rib, which protects man's life, which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do. Around this bone, I shaped you...
I modeled you. I created you perfectly and beautifully.
Your characteristics are as the rib, strong yet delicate and fragile.
You provide protection for the most delicate organ in man, his heart. His heart is the center of his being; his lungs hold the breath of life.

The rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart. Support man as the rib cage supports the body.

You were not taken from his feet, to be under him, nor were you taken from his head, to be above him. You were taken from his side, to stand beside him and be held close to his side.

You are my perfect angel...You are my beautiful little girl.

You have grown to be a splendid woman of excellence, and my eyes fill when I see the virtues in your heart. Your eyes...don't change them. Your lips; how lovely when they part in prayer. Your nose so perfect in form. Your hands so gentle to touch. I've caressed your face in your deepest sleep. I've held your heart close to mine. Of all the lives that breathe you are the most like me.

Adam walked with me in the cool of the day, yet he was lonely. He could not see me or touch me. He could only feel me. So everything I wanted Adam to share and experience with me, I fashioned in you; my holiness, my strength, my purity, my love, my protection and support. 

You are special because you are an extension of me. Man represents my image, woman my emotions. Together, you represent the totality of God.

So man....treat women well, love her, respect her, for she is fragile. 

Please share this with your women friends and family that they may know they are blessed by God and with your male friends so that they may realize the gift God has shared with them. 

Thank you for your visit today. Take care and God bless!
