Monday's Musings



The 3rd Monday of 2017 and what a big week this is for our nation.
 This Friday, January 20th, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.  10 weeks ago the American people spoke and  the result was, no doubt,  the biggest surprise in the history of our country.  And, many of those that voted against him cannot get over the fact that their candidate lost.  Well, I pray that "they" will get over it, accept it and get about the business of helping Trump make America great again.  I am praying that his inauguration will go smoothly and not be interrupted by rioters and those up to no good.  I'm hearing all the talk of how tight security will be and it truly makes me nervous.  May the Lord have His shield of protection over this day and cause us all to come together for the betterment of our great nation.

When did my little Princess grow up into such a big girl?  She is absolutely thriving in 1st grade!  She dresses like a big girl, and acts like a big girl but it's so hard to believe she's 7 1/2 years old. But, I love each age and stage and what it brings.  It's all a part of growing up!

Some of you may have seen my FB post about this movie Friday evening.  But, if you did not, let me just say, this is one of the best movies of all time! It was recommended to us and we were so glad we took the time to go see it on the big screen.  The story is awesome and the acting is superb! You will leave with such a good feeling.

 I love Valentine's Day!  I do think it is sooooo over rated as far as gifts and flowers go, but I do love the day.  I'm not sure we can emphasize love enough and celebrating a day of love is too much fun. And, baking in heart shaped pans is lots of fun too. 😉 And, opening the mailbox to find a Valentine card inside warms the heart. FYI - 4 weeks from tomorrow is Valentine's Day.  I don't do a lot of decorating for Valentine's but I do like to have a few touches around in our living area.

If you want to read the Bible thru in a year then I highly recommend this Bible.  It has each day's reading broken into passages from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs.  It is probably about 15 minutes of reading per day.  I am enjoying it so much and am DETERMINED to read it all the way thru this year.

  1. I love decorating for Valentine's Day too. I have the same heart-shaped glass piece - the one in the bottom left-hand corner. It looks so beautiful displayed upright as you have or in the center of the coffee table.

  2. Our little princesses do not stay little long for sure. Michelle sent pics of both her girls before going to their big Snowball dance last night. Hard to believe it's Savannah's last. But like you said, every stage is a good one.

  3. Dear Lea, Love this post! I was visiting with some neighbor gals this morning and we were talking about the need to pray for President Elect Trump and also Pence and their families. I too wish those opposed would just respect that America voted him in and let it go-we didn't protest when Obama got elected the first time or second time; most respected the office, if not the man.
    Love your Valentine's items and your granddaughter is beautiful.
    Hugs today.

  5. We all need to pray for our country's future, and President Trump and Vice President Pence. America can become great again.

  6. Hi, Lea! Yes, I am in complete agreement with what you wrote about Donald Trump. I am trusting that he will help turn our country around. He has my prayers and support. I purchased a 365-Day Bible and am bound and determined to read it in one year...I posted about it today.
