    From Joshua:

    Thank you for the kind welcome. I would like to use my Christian name If that’s ok.

    I hope and pray everyone has a wonderful Sunday or Sabath or whatever you call it.

  2. Love the picture, Stella. I saw it and instantly thought of this verse: Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the Lord hath made; I will rejoice and be glad in it.

      I thought of that same verse this morning S&S as I was coming out of church, but for a completely different reason. We have yet another cold, cloudy, rainy day. Been raining for weeks, hardly ever see the sun, rarely gets up to 50 degrees, and I am sooooooooo tired of it. So I thought of that verse to try to shift my attitude as I trudged through the raindrops to my car. It helped a bit. My weather app predicts sunshine on Wednesday. I hope so!

      • Thank you for sharing that, Tundra. It is hard to keep your spirits up when it’s dreary outside. I hope the forecast is correct and the sun will be shining there soon.

        Ummmmmmm…aren’t you at the peak now of your most rainiest month? Jes sayin’, pull up a nice planked chunk o’ fresh salmon and be thankful you’re not down here with 97-degrees and 87% humidity. Y’all remember that, eh?

        • The Tundra PA says:

          Yes I do remember that, and yes we are. I think we’ve had about 3 days this month when it didn’t rain. I know, I’m whining.


          • czarowniczy says:

            You get salmon right off the boat…we paid $9 a pound. My turn to whine.

            I would be whining, too. When we lived in Upstate NY for a while, we had 4 days of the gloomiest weather I had ever experienced. By the fourth day, I was nearly nuts. We couldn’t even walk around the house without all the lights on because it was almost completely dark outside. In FL and S. Cal. most days are sunny, and gloomy days are sparse and broken up.

    Hey, Stella. I just saw that you were listed on AOL under Most Interesting Stories on the Web. I am on Firefox and I guess this list is because of what I have been looking at. I guess I just never paid any attention to that page before. Hm. Maybe it isn’t what I thought it was.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    If you cross Trump, he’ll call you names. If you cross Hillary you may accidentally commit suicide. If you cross the deep state you can find yourself in solitary, your family ruined.

    Trump is a bullshitter, like lots of good salesmen. Hillary is a conniver.

    Trump is PT Barnum. Hillary is Lady Macbeth. Mueller is a mini Himmler wannabe.

    Trump is a fighter, but he’d rather find a win-win. Hillary wants to win and grind her enemies to dust.
