It was very large balloons in the shape of fish; blue, black and yellow were their colors.

Sit it out Saturday

Well, I did a little shopping, not nearly enough, and visited my baby boy bird to see his tree. He is so proud of his little two room apartment and with good reason. It is really sweet.

12 days left until the book comes out. Time is going way slow!

Psalm 31:7

I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;

The word rejoice is defined as to feel joy or great delight. The psalmist tells God that he rejoices or feels joy and great delight in the mercy of God. The Psalmist knows that God owes him nothing but yet God still provides. God still considers his soul in times of trouble. God still will help the psalmist… Continue
