Day 19 – Friday Feast

We head out in a couple of hours for our Family Focus weekend at rehab. so I leave you with this feast:

Describe a toy you remember from your childhood.

Raggedy Ann.  I love that rag doll.  Going to have to search for one online for Bells because I can’t find one in a toy store.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you?

I’d say a 7.  Used to be higher but I seem to have alot on my mind…

Where would you rather be at this very moment?

Here.  Alone. 

Main Course
When was the last time you learned something new?

Within the last couple of hours.  We have breakfast with an elderly friend most Fridays and I learn something new each time we are together.  He is a veritable warehouse of information. 

Fill in the blank: I have __security (in Christ)__________ but I haven’t ____any money________. 


Hope you all have a wonderful, safe weekend, gail

  1. well thank you for sharing that with us…i do hope that your weekend is a great turning point for your family… 
    *~* :o) smiles are contagious… :o) so pass one on … :o) soon the whole world will be smiling… :o) *~*

  2. Well, I should think that a family focus group in that setting is a total new learning experience all in itself. 😀
    I hope it all goes well enough and that boy is getting well. He has to be learning great life lessons and "strategies for life" himself.
    Appetizer: A toy from my childhood would be probably my Chatty Kathy Doll and my Barbie Dolls. Also all my books and bikes. 
    Soup: I’m extremely observant… I give myself a 12. It is because I look at life through an artist eye… you have to SEE the intricate grain of a piece of wood to paint it correctly. You have to SEE the pores and lines on a face to get it right… You HAVE TO SEE the invisible to bring it out in paintings. And if that isn’t enough… I have years of Army training pounded into me about being observant. I am very very observant. Trained and naturally. 😀  Wu… it’s one of my best talents. (I got carried away there… sorry.)
    Salad: Hmmm.. YES, SO VERY OBVIOUS OKINAWA, JAPAN… grandbaby coming this weekend, G. I wish I were there.
    Main Course: I learn something new every single day almost. From little things to big things. I think I am so worldly and smart, and maybe I am… but not enough that I don’t learn something new every day.
    Dessert: I have TOTAL security (in Christ) JESUS, but I haven’t GOT any money TO BUY THE NEW MERCEDES I WANT…? (That was the first thing that came to my mind… lol.) Sounds shallow… How about I haven’t RECEIVED any money (GEE THIS IS HARD…) TO TAKE A WORLD TRIP… NO… TO CHANGE THE WORLD…? i DUNNO.
    LOL… I give up… Why are we putting Jesus and Money together anyway?
    Love you dear, and hope that your weekend is glorious… I hope that the family focus weekend is insightful, learning, and gives you peace and knowledge that you need to go on without fear of the future. Ya…
    Hugs, from Lori  

  3. I pray you guys all discover new things about each other as a family that you’ll treasure forever!
    Mud.  Went well with what my name was most of the time as a kid, lol.
    Is there a number for selective obserancy?  Is observancy even a word?
    Swimmin’ and floatin’ ’round in a nice clear lake!
    Main course:
    I’m in the throes of a big life lesson, so I’ll let ya know what I learned when I come out the other side, yes?
    Love you!!!  Lots and lots!!!
    Carol 🙂

  4. Oops!  I can’t even believe I forgot dessert!  It’s so not like me!
    I have______nothing but praise for God_____.  I haven’t_____anything to complain about AT ALL!!! (that’s how the Lord is dealing with me today, lol…)
    Love ya still!!!
    Carol 🙂

  5. Hey G, praying you have a good weekend out there with the boy. My first Ragedy Ann doll was bought during my first year in the US. 🙂 I went to this farmer’s market at about 7am in the morning…….and there was this beautiful ragedy doll. I HAD To buy it coz all my life I’d wanted one. It’s not very big, but it’s pretty. Now I tell my girls to be very careful with it, coz it is precious!  ok, since everyone is doing your Friday feast, thought I’d do one for fun..
    here goes..

    AppetizerDescribe a toy you remember from your childhood.
    My racing car. I mean, I could get into it, and paddle and let it move like a real car on the road.
    On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you?
    I think I’m a 10. I am observant…simply my nature of observing everything and smelling everything! plus, I’m a pianist who loves perhaps it comes as part of the package.
    SaladWhere would you rather be at this very moment?
    Hmmm…..travelling…perhaps Australia or Israel?
    Main CourseWhen was the last time you learned something new?
    Yesterday night. I try to learn something new everyday.
    DessertFill in the blank: I have _lost quite a bit of weight since baby no.2__ but I haven’t _gotten it close to where I want it to be.  hahaha..
    God bless you dear! take good care!

  6. Thanks for your prayers, I’m praying your family time will be fruitful and worthwhile. Learn lots, and trust God.

  7. Hello Gail,    
    After much thought, I have put my Space on private. The harassers and spammers  persist in coming by leaving nasty, pornographic comments on my site. Then when you tell them to not return, you are guilty of violating their self-assumped rights and self-assumed importance.And when I have MSN delete their Spaces, the retaliation increases.
    I shall move my Blog and everything else to MySpace, initially. It will be okay, I will provide everyone the url/link. I suggest that we ALL move off MSN Live Spaces, it’s just not worth the unintelligent verboisity from the commenters.
    Peace, Love, & Blessingsrwc 

  8. AppetizerDescribe a toy you remember from your childhood.
    I have two favorites. My stuffed teddy bear named Michael, and my big stuff dog named Manfred. Michael went everywhere I went. Manfred would lay on the floor and I would use him as a pillow when I watched TV. He had the softest ears to rub.
    SoupOn a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you?
    I’d say a 5.  Unless I am really interested in something…
    SaladWhere would you rather be at this very moment?
    Right where I am. 
    Main CourseWhen was the last time you learned something new?
    I learn something new every day! I am self taught at everything.
    DessertFill in the blank: I have security in (Christ) but I haven’t any (energy).

  10. Hello Gail,
    I hope & pray that your son is doing better. It sounds like he is truly serious about rehab working. I know you are travelling a rough road right now. God is with you and are all your friends. 
    It is a shame that some people insist on creating problems by posing as others and telling lies. I am NOT leaving Spaces. So have a good laugh at someone who can do nothing, knows nothing, and the delete. Hopefully that person’s blogsite will get caught up in the justifiable deletions that MSN has undertaken this week – deleted at least 4 blogsites that could do nothing but annoy people.
    Peace, Love, & Blessings.

  11. Ciao G,

    God Bless You Bella
