Miscellany Monday

1. I'm "wanting" an IPad but am wondering if something similar with even more features may be "just around the corner." Seems there always some new "technical gadget" on the horizon.

2. I'm a big fan of American Family Radio (AFR) but this week have found myself listening to Back to the Bible (BBN) and the old hymns of the faith are just hard to beat.  I bet some of you "younger" readers have not even ever heard of BBN. ~smile~

3. It makes me sad that many of the young adults today will never know the great hymns.

4. I decided this week that brown eyeliner has a better look on me than black (despite what a "makeup expert" told me)

5. I stepped out of my "box" this weekend and wore a wild printed skirt, with a handkerchief hem, to my 40th year class reunion. 95% of the time I wear nothing but solid colors. Not sure what this says.......

6. There's something to be said for a friendship that has spanned 43 years.  We could write several books. ~chuckle~

7. I'm praying I will be able to find just the right ladies to fill the responsibilities of the Women's Ministry Council of our church for the upcoming new church year.

8. I've just about totally quit watching the national news. I don't want to be ignorant of what's going on in the world, but I've grown tired of all the distressing news.  
 9. I've just discovered that the "real" bacon bits sprinkled over cheese toast is yummy, yummy.  

10. I am just sure that the Lord never intended for the humidity to be as high as it is in Louisiana, just like a steam sauna. ~chuckle~

11. Our family is rejoicing that our daughter and son-in-law's house in Oklahoma sold on Saturday. This was truly an answer to prayer. And, an added bonus was that they got more than they ever expected to for it. God is so good!

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Happy Monday!!! I am playing along today too!
    Your so pretty!!

  2. There probably is some new techy gadget right around the corner...there always is!

    Interesting about the makeup. I was told years ago, I was a "summer" and I agree with the colors I should wear, but every time I wear the really bright warm colors on my face I feel strange, especially the lipstick colors. However, I did do an online color analysis the other day and loved the results of that.

    I must admit...I have never heard of Back to the Bible but I do adore the old hymns. Our church does a hymn memorization program with the children's choirs and I love that my kids are at least being exposed to some of those rich old songs.

    Congrats to your daughter on the sale of her house...that is great in these times!

    Have a blessed week!

  3. Love love love the skirt! You look fabulous in it!!

    My brother has an Ipad and it is amazing! However, a friend of mine was told by an associate to wait till Christmas to buy one as they are adding even more features. Sigh -- but I would still love one!

    Your number 3 post has made me even more determined to teach my kids some great hymns. I used to play organ at church (yes, organ, and for 15 years) and love many fabulous hymns.

    Have a wonderful Monday!

  4. My daughter was just telling me she wanted "The Nook". They are both very cool.

    Your skirt for your reunion is awesome.

    Have a great Monday.

  5. Hi,

    I came over from Carissa's blog! Thank you so much for sharing!

    I love old hymns, especially during church service because they create a special environment every service should have. However, at home or during young adult Bible study, I enjoy listening to modern worship songs - and singing along - because they let me express my praise in my own words. (I hope that makes any sense.)

    Have a wonderful and blessed week,

  6. Congrats on the selling of the house!! That's exciting. As for the hymns. I love hymns. I am glad my folks raised us on those songs. We don't hear them as much anymore.
    I love the skirt! It's cute and colorful!

    Thanks for your randomness!




So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
