Soaked, but Grateful

    

Another, beautiful, design by Donna.  See the link to This, That & Hockey in the side bar.

 

Oh, yeah!  Wet, through and through.  Had to get out in the rain this morning and drag a large oak limb out of the road to get to work.  Hit Beaumont to find the feeder roads flooded and traffic backed-up and crawling on the freeway.  Made my 40-45 minute drive to work in just a hour and 45 minutes!  LOL   Then I had to wade ankle deep water to get in the back gate.  But I am thankful.  Thankful God got me there and back in one piece.  Thankful it is cool.  Thankful that Bubba got bored and made fudge. 

Yes, I am thankful.  And forgetful.  Or maybe just mixed up.  I put the 10th Devotion on Marriage under the wrong link.  I corrected the original link.  And there it is again, above.  Today, I read & pondered on the 11th Devotion on Marriage.  So, if you are following along, I think I have that linked correctly as well.  But you never know.  ;o)

I have always loved the Serenity Prayer.  It has helped me so very much along my way.  My niece, Paige, sent me a funny little E-Mail about aging.  It had a new little spin on the serenity prayer.......called it the senility prayer.  If the serenity prayer got me through the first half of this journey called life, maybe this senility prayer will get me through the second leg of the journey. ;o)   Smile, it is for humor.....

                           THE SENILITY PRAYER :

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,

the good fortune to run into the ones I do,

and the eyesight to tell the difference.

  3. Cute prayer. God was good with rain blessings that have passed ruining our hay the past 3 fields. We got the much needed rain  on the pasture but it missed the hayfield. What an answered prayer and blesssing.

  4. All our rain is going your way but you all always get more then we do. Stay dry or maybe just stand out in it. Paula

  5. I really like the prayer!  I think I'm getting a touch of it already.  Like the graphic again, of course.  Glad you're not too bogged down.  We're in the thick of our rainy season too- hubby finally got to mow yesterday as we've had 2 whole days without rain in our part of SWF.  It's hot as anything though when it doesn't rain.  Either flooded, or hot and sweaty.  Hmmm.  Oh well- could be worse.  Have a good rest of the week Barbra!  () Carolyn

  6. I definitely like the Senility Prayer!

    We had a ton of rain last week, but so far this week we've had none.  But it is very dark & cloudy this morning, so I guess we're in for it today.

    Stay dry!

    Hugs,
    Gwynn

    It rained here last night, but nothing major like that, it was lighting and thundering for about an 1 and 1/2 before it rained for a whole 15 mins.

  10. PRAYER IS POWERFUL, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
      THE OLD TESTAMENT MENTIONS ONE FELLOW THAT HAD DEVELOPED CALLUSES ON HIS KNEES FROM PRAYING IN THAT POSITION.
        I HAVE SEARCHED NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURE SUGGESTING PRAYING WHILE ON OUR KNEES. PLEASE TELL ME IF YOU KNOW SUCH SCRIPTURE.
          GOD HEARS US WHETHER WALKING, RUNNING OR DRIVING. BEST KEEP OUR EYES OPEN WHILE DRIVING.     sam

  11. Sounds like you have had some real downpours. Please send some over to our part of the UK.  We are desperate. They keep saying.....it just does not come.

  12. Hi Barb,
    Thank you for visiting my journal and I got a kick out of that SENILITY PRAYER!
    I'm here on the East Coast (Delaware) and we have had more than our share of rain. In fact, we've had some storms the like I've never seen. One was so forceful it felled one of the limbs of a 100 ft oaktree behind the house. On the way down, the oaktree limb sawed off the limb of a large maple. I've never been through a hurricane but if that's what it's like ... I'll pass thanks!
    Hope we both have drier weather!!!
    Donna's work is always wonderful!

  13. I think your Senility Pray is correct.   The part about the eyesight definitely.   The part about forgetting is correct too.    I think that when we face up to our responsibilitys we have done all we can do.    Thanks for visiting my journal.   I have family in Texas so they may have been effected as you were.    We have been having heat, humidity, and some rain here in S. Illinois.    My low back has been acting up and I need to rest it before I can function.    Just bending has been causing me a lot of pain.    The fall should be here in a month and things will change.     mark
