A moment in time

July 11, 2012

For ME:  Sleep soon to dream.  I have to say for me Jesus is more than a carpenter.  He is, to me, the only begotten son of God.  I am Christian , but the word trinity is not in the Bible.  My father is my father and I am his daughter.  Jesus is God’s only  begotten son . He is my master. I have looked and looked and again, the  specific word trinity is not mentioned in the Bible. I believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

I cannot be more serious tonight.  It is time to sleep and regenerate.

In the morning I will awake and pray, again ask for my sins to be forgiven, and thank God for His forgiveness and many blessings He gives me daily. I will walk the dog and pray and keep my mind ready for God. I want to praise Him and do His bidding.  I am such a human, so weak in so many ways,  and I know we are freely given grace, but I personally need to ask again and again for His forgiveness…What an Awesome God.

The Brown Recluse Spider

June 16, 2010

A close friend of mine sent me this via the email. It had been circulating on line, but I had not seen it. I think it important enough to post for those of us in the USA and Canada.

If you don’t look at but one picture, be sure you take a look so that you will know what the spider looks like! (Yes, I posted it twice!)

“It’s springtime and play and cleanup is going on. Be careful where you put your hands. They like dark spaces & woodpiles. Watch the children!
Children play in all kinds of places that could harbor one of these little monsters.”

The following pictures are GROSS….but this is important to know what can happen with a bite from this little tiny spider.

“This guy was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider. The following illustrates the progression of a brown recluse spider bite. The affected skin actually dies on his body! Some of the pictures towards the end are pretty nasty.”

But I believe they drive the point home and sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Be safe!

Day 3

Day 5

Day 9

The Brown Recluse Spider is the most dangerous spider that we have in the USA & CANADA

A person can die from it’s bite. We all should know what the spider looks like.

People will be digging around, doing yard work, spring cleaning, and sometimes in their attics.

Please be careful. Spider bites are dangerous and can have permanent and highly negative consequences.

They like the darkness and tend to live in storage sheds or other areas that might not be frequented by people or light.

If you have a need to be in your attic, go up there and turn on a light and leave it on for about 30 minutes before you go in to do your work!

Today I saw a butterfly

September 4, 2009

butterfly It came to land on a daisy first.
It did not just flutter by. I think it knew I was watching it. Intent- so entralled was I. The yellow was soft in color like a pat of butter melting and dripping off the plate of flapjacks. The pin striping of stark black boldly flowed from wing to wing. The butterfly was wings open full bore when landing on a blossom. I don’t know where their eyes are but she saw me snap her lingering on the petals. It was joyous to share the time with sweet nature. We didn’t speak the same language, but we shared common ground. I hope she was as fascinated with me as I with her.

It was a good day.

HEAT and DEATH!

June 27, 2009

Did you know more people die from heat related problems than hurricanes and tornadoes and any other “weather event” each year?

My husband just brought home some current information from OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). I would like to share it with you.

“When the body is unable to cool itself by sweating, several heat-induced illnesses such as heat stress or heat exhaustion an the more severe heat stroke can occur, and can result in death.

High temperature and humidity; direct sun or heat; limited air movement; physical exertion; poor physical condition; some medicines; and inadequate tolerance for hot workplaces are all factors leading to heat stress.

If you find yourself with any of these symptoms, you probably are experiencing heat exhaustion. Headaches, dizziness lightheadedness or fainting, mood changes such as irritability or confusion, upset stomach or vomiting, or weakness and moist skin.

The symptoms of heat stroke are dry, hot skin with now sweating, mental confusion or losing consciousness, seizures or fits.

There are ways to prevent heat stress. First it is important to recognize symptoms of heat-related illnesses; monitor yourself and coworkers. Block out direct sun or heat sources: Wear long sleeves, a hat, lightweight, light colored, loose-fitting clothes. Wear a hat. Take an umbrella with you. Drink lots of water; about 1 cup every 15 minutes. (Be careful about gulping too much ice water at one time when you are overheated. It can be very bad for the body!) Use cooling fans, air-conditioning, hand fans, even a paper fan is better than nothing.

Avoid alcohol (it dries you up) caffeinated drinks, or heavy meals.

If you feel you or someone with you has a heat related problem, call 911 immediately (or whatever your local emergency number is). While waiting for help move whomever is suffering to any shaded or cool area. Loosen or remove heavy clothing. Provide drinking water that is cool. Fan and mist the person with water if possible.

Also, remember the elderly at these times, and the children! If you know someone that may be in harm’s way – help them. Please consider your pets during these intense heat spells. They can die too!

Lastly, SUNSCREEN REGULARLY. You may think tanning is beautiful but it can be deadly for humans of all ages! Tanning WILL probably cause skin cancer, which can be deadly. For vanity – it will also make your skin like leather and wrinkly! So be smart
with you and your family. Even the littlest of children need sunscreen. I would rather have them fuss about putting it on than see them have skin cancer.

Don’t forget HEAT CAN – AND DOES KILL!
