Did I tell you that Mrs. haynes9 and I celebrated our 30th anniversary last week? Did you know that we were apart as usual? How funny is it that Junior Camp comes every year when our anniversary occurs? Reckon I should take her some pace special when our busy summer season is over?
Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost. -- John Quincy Adams
Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more, you should never wish to do less - Robert E. Lee
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved - Romans 10:13 (KJV)
The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble, and he knoweth them that trust in him - Nahum 1:7 (KJV)
Do you know I haven't decided yet? Can you believe how long it's been since we took a couple of days to get away? Do you know she's not crazy about making long drives right now, so we may go someplace close?
Did you see the contest rules for this month? Do you think a free CD is even better motivation for being top poster? You think I will beat you and get to pick the Deirdra Shannon CD?
God then made man. The Italians for their beauty. The French for their cuisine. The Welsh for their voices. The Germans for their cars. And on and on until He looked at what He had created and said, "This is all very well, but no-one is having fun. I'll have to make an Irishman."
Can I come out and play, too? Does anyone miss me? Do I miss my friends at Celtic Radio? Can I answer with a YES? Do you think that I should post more? Will three days off from work help me to clear my head?
]AN EXCERPT FROM A POEM THAT I WROTE ON 10/11/07
WE CAN'T CHANGE WHAT WE HAVE DONE.... BUT ONLY TAKE A LESSON FROM EACH EXPERIENCE AND MAKE THE MOST OF EACH MINUTE THAT WE HAVE LEFT AND TELL OURELVES THAT IT IS OK TO LIVE, LAUGH AND CRY..... PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE ALL WORK TOGETHER TO GIVE US WHAT WE CAN AND SHOULD EXPERIENCE AND WE NEED TO CHERISH ALL OF THE TIME THAT WE SPEND WITH OURSELVES AND OTHERS MAKING THE MOST OF THE SPECIAL MEMORIES THAT ARE OURS.. AND THE ONES THAT WE HAVE YET TO CREATE WITH THE PEOPLE THAT WE HAVEN'T MET!!!!![/SIZE]
Did you know that I agree that it is great to have more posters and welcome back all who are back or new? Did you know that the top 5 posters this month get CDs so if you win you can pick another CD and let me have the Deirdre Shannon one? Did you know that it is fun to race for first and would be glad to see others compete also?
Can you believe I had my son in law reach lat night to our congregation? Do you know he did a fantastic job? How are we going to handle it when he and the family move to China? Do you think we'll be able to make it over to Beijing in 2009? Should I be putting more money back?
Isn't it nice to have friends? Is life simple? Not really, but I can try to get things in order, can't I? And can I enjoy things by myself? If I wake up each day and Thank God for a good day, It is a wonderful day, isn't it? If the sun would come out and stay out, would we all be warm?? Is there anyone out there who is reading my "long Novel" for this glorious day???
