Always Say Your Prayers......

I love this saying and have been meaning to make a plaque for a long time now.

This afternoon I finally got around to DOING it!

Louis Dean is going to hang it in the hall above our bedroom door.
A good reminder before we go to bed.
Bedtime prayers, morning devotions.....'popcorn' prayers throughout the could we manage Life without Prayer?

Speaking of prayer........

This picture says it all!!
Praise God!

Friday was rainy here in the DFW area. 
Saturday dawned with MUCH cooler temps!
As much a I longed to be up and doing in this beautiful weather, 
I ended up spending the entire day in bed. Bedtime was at 7:00!
How I could have such a bad allergy attack with the gorgeous weather I'll never know!

Thankfully I am nearly back to my old self today - and just in the nick of time!!
 Tomorrow I leave for a week at the beach!!

A bunch of us went in on renting a condo right on the beach!
My 'stuff' is about ready to load up!
Wine, books, cheese, dominoes, crackers, more wine......

fruitcake cookies.....beach towels....I think I am just about ready!
My sister, Luann, will be here in the morning and we plan to leave at 10:00.
I'm leaving the house clean with post it notes here and there for Louis Dean.....
Lucy will be out of dog food by Tuesday. Buy more bird seed. Take out the trash.
You get the idea!

Before I load up the car I have one last errand!
I get to pick Leah and Patrick up at the airport as they return from an Alaskan honeymoon!
AND I will get to see their brand new home!

My next journal entry will be from the beach!!
I can already hear the seagulls......
