Working out the little things....

**UPDATE** I have to get this fixed, I just tried to post photos of some crochet items I've made, and still, this same message.

Ok, still using the pc that I've had, with birthdays Christmas and baby, I can't buy a new pc or lap top just yet. This one has been fixed, but there is 1 thing not working, everything else is working as if it is new. When I click a link on any page, or links at the ville to see others work, or pattern, (even my own blog link in my siggy) I get this message that I do not know how to fix. it says ....

"The requested look up key was not found in any active activation context."

Can't even use my print or preview in my toolbar, says the same message. I spent over an hour on the phone with tech support, (after it was fixed) and all they could tell me was to download the new internet explorer 7 or the mozilla fire fox browser, but when I get to the end of the process, guess what.... Same message. So I am still able to use my pc and everything is working great, I just can't follow some links, some work, some don't, and this message is not one I'm familiar with, so any ideas on how to fix this are greatly appreciated. Other wise, I will just wait till after Christmas to buy a new puter. So, still working, still here, just not able to follow some links.

I have been away for awhile due to pc trouble...eeek! Anywho, I am hoping to be set up soon. A few quick things, there have been inquiries on a few of my posted projects and I will get to answer them when I'm set up. Thank you so very much Amy S for everything you sent me in the Summer Round of Secret Pal, and Tracey, I hope you enjoyed everything I sent you. Loopy, I did receive your card, thank you so much! It was a joy to hear from you. I've missed you all so much! and would have been back sooner, but we are getting ready for our sweet little one, so we have had other expences recently. Let's see, oh...I was published in the Pattern A Day Calander, twice! Yeah! Praise Jesus, and go check it out! I know I'm forgeting something, and I'm sorry for neglecting this blog, but I will catch back up very soon, here and at the Ville. I have some great projects to hopefully show soon! Have a beautifully blessed weekend and God Bless!

Pretty things.....

I do not know what this is, it is growing along the edge by the forest. (doesn't forest sound much better then "woods") I just love it. There are yellow Irises growing here too. This is a bit of Ivy growing up the front porch.
Oh, how much do I love this plant. We have 2, and they attract butterflies. We always have a garden full of butterflies. The flowers are white, pink, and a dark pink. They are long and trumpet shaped, they reach about 10 feet high. This branch was low to the ground, the flowers bloom on top of the branches.

Aren't these flowers beautiful? They are growing all around my yard. Our pecan trees went through a hard frost, but they have bloomed back out. Praise the Lord! Hoping they will produce pecans this fall. They didn't last year, but I've been told they produce every other year, so we shall see. The one right behind my house is huge, it is sooo tall, you could stack my house on top of itself 3 times and the pecan tree would still be taller than that. I've tried to get a full photo, but you have to be so far away from it, you loose perspective. When it does have pecans, right before they fall, these massive branches touch the ground under the weight. A lovely sight. When it produces, everyone knows what they are getting for Christmas.

50 Book Challenge in 1 Year.

I've decided to do the 50 Book Challenge in a year too. A little late, but here are the first 3 I'm reading now.

1. God's Promises for Mothers
2. At Home in Mitford
3. Anne of Green Gables

It seems summer is here in the south already! Yay! We had fresh tomatoes and cucumbers today along with lunch. I will post a photo later of the delicious produce. (when I get some more! It doesn't last long here) I think tomatoes and cucumbers are in a food category all their own. Also I have 2 tomatoe plants started, one is a cherry tomatoe. As kids we called them tommy toes. Silly huh?

Crocheting away on the sweet little thing I'm testing for Anna. I believe it will be done by the end of this week. I had to frog the first row of the scallop. Eeekkk. I don't like to frog. Anywho, it is soooooooo sweet! I just hope Maddi isn't to chunky to fit into it. Also deciding what to make for my SP.

The song I posted yesterday may have offended some, I do understand it is a little blunt. However, the message is true of any Christian, I want to be more like Jesus. I pray for His grace, forgiveness, and help, because with out Him, who knows where I'd be today. Enjoy this wonderfully warm day, a gift from God.

Thought Provoking Song...

This song, I heard on the radio a good while ago, then again today, and it has such a profound message. Just read and see...If you've heard it, you know what I mean. Only 1 thing, in my church, Jesus would be welcomed, open arms falling at His feet. The singer is Todd Agnew....

"Which Jesus do you follow?
Which Jesus do you serve?
If Ephesians says to imitate Christ
Then why do you look so much like the world?

Cause my Jesus bled and died
He spent His time with thieves and liars
He loved the poor and accosted the arrogant
So which one do you want to be?
Blessed are the poor in spirit
Or do we pray to be blessed with the wealth of this land
Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for righteousness
Or do we ache for another taste of this world of shifting sand

Cause my Jesus bled and died for my sins
He spent His time with thieves and sinners and liars
He loved the poor and accosted the rich
So which one do you want to be?
Who is this that you follow
This picture of the American dream
If Jesus was here would you walk right by on the other side or fall down and worship at His holy feet

Pretty blue eyes and curly brown hair and a clear complexion
Is how you see Him as He dies for Your sins
But the Word says He was battered and scarred
Or did you miss that part
Sometimes I doubt we'd recognize Him

Cause my Jesus bled and died
He spent His time with thieves and the least of these
He loved the poor and accosted the comfortable
So which one do you want to be?
Cause my Jesus would never be accepted in my church
The blood and dirt on His feet would stain the carpet
But He reaches for the hurting and despised the proud
I think He'd prefer Beale St. to the stained glass crowd

And I know that He can hear me if I cry out loud
I want to be like my Jesus!
I want to be like my Jesus!

So very powerful. I am challenged and am challenging everyone, be more charitable, not because of the good you receive, but because that's what Jesus did. He went out of His way to save and help us all. Surely we can continue stepping out of our comfort zones and help those in need. There are so many people out there who are hurting, alone, on drugs, homeless, pregnant an in trouble, sick, elderly, there is a place for everyone to help. Please go out and find what you can do, and then do it well. Do it in Jesus' name. What good is it if you don't tell them about Jesus? I promise, if you meet some of their needs, they may, and some will listen. They may not respond the way you want, but they will have heard that Jesus loves them, and what He did for them, and just how special they are, because Jesus died for them to have the chance to go to Heaven. Think about it, the Son of God, the King of kings, loves you, us all. That's amazing! Tell them who Jesus is, share Him with them. Pick up a few Bibles, and give them out to whom ever God lays on your heart to help. Read the story of the Good Samaritan, it is soooo much more than a Sunday school lesson for children. We need to be a Samaritian every day with the faith of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.

Thank You Lord for a fresh inspiration and focus.

Hope you have an absolutely Beautiful time serving the Lord by helping those in need.
