Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{1} Oh, my goodness, we had the most gorgeous Saturday here in N.E. Louisiana. It was in the mid 70's and gave us such a "tease" of Spring that I could hardly stand it. Hubby and I worked on an outside project and so enjoyed ourselves.  THEN, the rains moved back in yesterday. Ugh!! It is dreary, rainy, muggy and very foggy this morning, and cold weather will move in tomorrow.   Now, I'm praying the Groundhog will NOT see his shadow on Wednesday. ~smile~

{2}Okay, if you young Moms do not know about this neat little item, you need to know.  As I've mentioned in a couple of other entries, our 27 month old Grandson is in the midst of Potty Training. Did you know that they make a Potty Training Watch?  

Yes, my dears, it is the cutest thing you have ever seen and you can set it for 30, 60 or 90 minutes and at the set time it plays a cute little song and the child knows that means it's "potty time."  It comes in both blue and pink and it can be found at One Step Ahead
for $10.95.  What will they think of next????? 

{3}Hubby and I were eating dinner the other night while watching the national news on TV. It was so distressing seeing all the unrest in Egypt and pretty much the entire world.  Hubby said, "you know, if folks would just simply abide by these three things,

1-Love the Lord our God with all our heart and soul.
2-Love they neighbor as thyself.
3-Do unto others as you have others do unto you.

the world would be free of all this turmoil and we could all live in harmony."  I sat there thinking about what he said, and it sounded so simple, until I was reminded that so many have no idea that these scriptural truths even exist.  It is such a sad state of affairs and the task for God's children grows greater with every passing day.
{4} I will be facilitating the One In A Million Bible Study by Priscilla Shirer in a couple of weeks.  I am really looking forward to this study and I seem to always get  more out of a study when I am the facilitator. Priscilla is such an awesome woman of God and this will be my first one of her studies.

Many thanks to Carissa for this fun Monday meme. If you want to read more randomness, click the button above and enjoy the read.

Each day is an entirely new creation,
Enjoy it!

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. Oh, I wish I lived closer and could do that study! I have been wanting to do it so badly! I know you will be so blessed.

    As for the potty training watch...that is classic! I wish I came up with clever things like that!

    We had a BEAUTIFUL Friday and Saturday here, too. But it has turned cool again and more icky weather is predicted. I am with you...groundhog, PLEASE don't see that shadow!

  2. Love Priscilla Shirer...I'm in a Deeper Still study right now (Faithful, Abundant, True) and she's written a portion of that. We just started last week due to weather delays and we meet on Tuesday and its supposed to snow tomorrow so we'll see if we actually get to meet but I'm excited about it nonetheless.

    Would love to see 72 degrees...actually 42 degrees would even be a step in the right direction!

  3. I am so glad you were able to enjoy the beautiful weather on Saturday! So sorry it's not sticking around, though! Spring is just around the corner ;)

    That potty training watch is so clever! I am always amazed at what "they" come up with. What really blew me away was the difference in baby items between Noah and Noelle. Gosh, they are only 3 years apart but the difference in products was amazing! I was shopping for a few baby shower gifts on Friday and was reminded again at just how much new stuff comes out in such a short period of time!

    You know I so wish I lived closer to you for many reasons but one would be to join you in this Bible study. I pray that it enriches your life and those who join you.

    Many, many blessings to you this week! xoxo, Kelly

  4. 1. We got the rain yesterday too.
    2. I try to come up with inventions but when I google them, thye already exist. =p
    3. Sad that people have never heard these truths, but sadder still is thos who have heard but choose not to follow.
    4. I have not gone through her studies either. Is there a book for individual study?

  5. Ooooooh I love Priscilla Shirer! Keep us updated on how it goes. So wish I lived closer so I could take part in it. I'll definitely be praying for you and your fellow ladies that'll be doing it with you!

    Hope your week is off to a fabulous start :)

  6. We had wonderful weather also...I started spring fever, now we are dropping into the teens.
    Oh that how did we parent without all these new items?
    Priscilla...well going through one of her books now and of course her Dad's church is here.
    Have a great week...prayers for Egypt!

  7. Your hubby is right on with the Egypt thing.

    The potty watch is too cool! I must remember that!

    Glad you enjoyed the beautiful weather!!!

  8. I wish they had the potty training watch when I was training my kiddos. Hope your week started out wonderfully!

  9. A potty training watch how neat.

    I have only done one of Priscilla Shirer Bible studies. She is truly a woman of God.

    Our group of ladies is doing a Beth Moore study this time. I am always blessed by her studies.

  10. Leah~ Thanks for visiting my place today! I hope that you are doing well!

    I love to read your Monday Misc. The point that caught my eye was the bible study by Priscilla Shirer~ One in a Million. We just started Sunday night and so far (with the last two days of homework) it's been awesome! In past churches I have been the one leading the study too, and this is a new experience for me just to sit, listen and enjoy!

    I hope that your weather continues to be beautiful! Hugs


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!
