"Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy." --- Proverbs 31:9
Better buckle up.....
1.) Pier One is closing all its stores. Darn. Even tho' I'd not visited one in a decade, still, just the thought of their cool, exotic, many-textured stuff can make me rearrange my rooms.
When something, someone, disappears, it's important not to lose the good influence they had upon us.
2.) Yesterday in a draft folder I wrote:
"Those who fought and died for our freedoms would be horrified to see how many we've lost since March--and--the many people cheering for their loss in the name of an ignorant version of safety."
Then this morning? I spied this at Facebook and felt so bad for this man.
3.) During these virus days I'm searching for new recipes and yesterday I found a marvelous one for chicken. Here's the original, but I tweaked it like this (Tom and I enjoyed this much!)---
Sprinkle 4 chicken thighs with your favorite seasonings, then brown in oil, 3 minutes each side.
Place 1/4 c. canned diced tomatoes in crockpot. Sprinkle a little dried rosemary over it.
Add chicken, sprinkle with more seasoning, then top with one 7 oz. can of mild green chilies. Spread 1/2 burrito seasoning packet over chilies, then add more dried rosemary.
Cook on high setting one hour, low for 3 1/2 hours , then 1/2 hour at high. Enjoy.
4.) Neighbor Sally had her virus days birthday and I watched Sue take this picture, below. Is Sally adorable or what? We didn't even stand 6 feet apart when I handed her a card. Sally and I like to live on the edge. シ
5.) Wow. The most incredible thing happened last Saturday. Here's how I explained it at Facebook--
Oh. My. Goodness! We stood outside hoping for a tiny glimpse of these planes and they flew right over our house, side by side, low and slow. Right over our house!!!! Tom and I waved and cheered and all felt right with the world for a moment. Tom, especially, was heart-blessed. Thank-you, Lord, for another present from You.
6.) My Western New York area is in Phase 1! Woo hoo! Must confess I doubted it could happen this soon.
These, below, can open now only if they have a specific approved plan in place. (Hey, I'll take it.)
"They include construction, manufacturing, wholesale trades, select retail stores for curbside pick-up only and parts of the agricultural industry."
7.) The Cheapest Covid-19 Therapy In The World--And It's Free."
8.) Yesterday's weather here was gorgeous perfection! Lately I've spent much time outside basking in the sun and breezy air so to stay healthy and not in my house (what a rebel. Sue me.).
I sit upon our little private sidewalk below our front porch and read and stare at my Prayer Garden and think about how good Life with God truly is.
9.)Loved this idea--
"I saw a great suggestion - pay your barber/stylist for the services you would have had during the closure if you’re financially able. We can help these people get back up!" -- Julie Barrett
"For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." ... Matthew 6:14,15
