Mary Ann does something I'll never be able to do....she landscapes her wooded area! I have a woods, but my fear of slithery things keeps me far away from it. She has spent countless hours planting wildflowers, dividing & replanting, clearing leaves, sticks & weeds,. There is a watershed running through it and she even had truck loads of huge rocks hauled in and hand layed a creek bed. She & her husband have made pathways, lined with logs, so you can weave in & out of the wooded gardens.
We went for a morning walk. I left my camera in the car so didn't get as many pictures as I wanted. It is beautiful! Her hard work has paid off & she loves to share the area with her friends. I enjoyed our little walk in the woods so much! Just wish my woods wasn't so near the Interstate & that I wasn't terrified of the "you know whats". (I can't even stand to say that word!)

He was just a poor farm boy who had to quit school after the 8th grade so he could work & help support his parents. He went on to work and retire from Panhandle Eastern Pipeline, where he was able to get his GED, and then went on and took some college classes.
Grandpa Brown & Parker
He was pretty proud of his first great-grandson!
Grandpa Brown & Carter
Carter had colic & I remember Dad rocking him, singing "Oh My Darling Clementine", and soothing Carter to sleep
This was Dad's last trip to our house...he knew he would never be back. He told me so when I let him out at the airport & it about broke my heart.

She has made the following post about doing an online Bible Study & it seems to be something that I might be interested in. Want to join me?
I've ordered the book, plus a couple of extras, so if you live nearby & would like a book, let me know.
Following is the post about the upcoming Study. It begins on Monday, May 4th.
Posted on www.antiquemommy.com.
"In the first chapter of her book "What Happens When Women Say Yes To God", Lysa Terkeurst tells about the time she was on an airplane and felt God prompting her to give her personal and treasured Bible away to a complete stranger.And I thought, "That woman is crazy. I would never give away my Bible! To a complete stranger? Now, I might offer to buy that person a Bible or even send them one, but I would never...."I won't tell you how that chapter ends, but I will tell you that I was convicted up one side and down the other. And then I put the book down because I realized that I didn't want to travel this journey alone.
So I called my friend Jennifer and invited her to go along. And because she is adventurous in spirit and a seeker of truth, and can't resist my wily charms, she agreed.And that is what this blog is all about - Jennifer and AM working through Lysa's book, seeking to figure out if we can be women who listen for the call of God's voice, women who yield to the call of God's voice and women who respond without hesitation, "Yes God! Here I am!"We would love for you to join us if you dare to be or aspire to be a woman who says yes to God.
Our plan is to read one chapter a week (they are short and very manageable) and wrestle with it here. One week Jennifer will author the discussion and the next week I will. Your participation will be to read along and join the conversation!The discussion of the first chapter will begin on Monday, May 4th.Get a book and join us!"

I find myself doing these same things.
Maybe this gift will be passed on to my daughter & daughter-in-law.
I think we all have a God given gift of knowing when all isn't well with our children.
