To you as well.. Blessings for you ...To you all;
God please bless my family,
wherever they may be.
Keep them warm and safe from harm
For theyíre so close to me.
And God, there is just one more thing
I wish that You could do;
Hope You donít mind me asking,
can You bless my computer too?
Now I know that itís unusual
to Bless a motherboard.
But listen just a second
while I explain it all to You.
You see that little metal box
holds more than odds and ends;
Inside those small compartments
rest so many of my friends.
I know so much about them
by the kindness that they give,
and this little scrap of metal
takes me in to where they live.
By faith is how I know them,
much the same as You.
We share in what life brings us
and from that our friendships grew.
Please take an extra minute
from Your duties up above,
to bless those in my chat rooms
that are filled with so much love.

May we all have flowers for Val Day..
The Grace Of Flowers
Gladiolas in a white vase,
their magenta faces shining
in early morning light
streaming through a windowpane
speckled with last night's raindrops,
bring me to wakefulness,
adoration, and hope.
Another volley of blossom
unfolds atop their stems,
assuring me that on the morrow
I shall yet have their company.
I pour cool water from a crystal pitcher
into the vase
with a devout prayer:
"May my life also unfold
in radiance and in beauty."
I return the flowers
to a corner of the hearth,
knowing I am ready, now,
for what the day may bring.

No More Smalling Up Of Me
No more meekly saying 'yes'
When my heart is screaming 'no'
No more taming of my feelings
So my power won't show
No more hiding my exuberance
From disapproving eyes
No more watering down myself
So my spirit won't rise
No more 'smalling up' of me
Pretending I am not here
No more running from the music
And the spotlight's glare
No more living in this prison
Barricaded by my fears
No more turning and retreating
In the face of new frontiers
Even as I am speaking
I am taking shape and form
Harnessing my powers
Like a gathering storm
There's no obstacle so bold
As to dare stand in my way
I am taking back my life
And I am doing it today.

Perhaps, you could get back to the doctor. Try not stress out thought. Unless your Peeps do that. You will be in my thoughts and I send you my Blessing of recovering soon and more life filled with happiness. An apple and laughter might just make that ticker feel better. May love surround you and your health improve soon:) Sure do miss you ...

Wow, it's been a long one. No birds out today. Had a rain snow mix this morning for a while. Crazy.

Magnificent creatures. Partner saw a bald eagle while driving through Montana last week. I enjoy hearing the different sound of birds.

I find it interesting myself that there have been matriarchal societies. I do believe from what I have learned about the Cherokee women, they played a role in bartering their goods. If I remember correctly the Celts had female warriors. Women have always played an important role in society; it's often that many dogmas tell men their women have a place. That is so wrong on many levels. My uniqueness is thus: I can do anything a man does if I want to if I have the fortitude. I agree,that era is extremely interesting.

Well, sometimes mother nature calls and there is no time to get to the door. Pups don't have full bowel/bladder control until about 3 months.

My goodness, the birds are carrying on here. Looks like sparrows. Chirp, chirp LOL.

I am so, so sorry that you are not well. I know exactly what you're feeling. I've been there before, and will likely revisit again. The only thing I can tell you is that you have to have faith that the Lord will answer your prayers. Your fear is understandable. Don't hesitate to call the doctor and arrange for appropriate tests. Sometimes stents malfunction and do not keep the artery open. You need to find out if that is the case. If something is wrong, the surgeon will likely be able to correct it. Don't wait until you are too ill and become a surgical high-risk patient. I will certainly keep you in my prayers.

You are so correct, AW. I always pray that God's Will be done. Sometimes, he gives us a reprieve when He feels that we have more work to do. But eventually, He will call us home. I pray for inner peace and for the knowledge of the correct path to choose in life. Prayer, especially in numbers, is a strong force. Several of my doctor's expressed great surprise at my survival. My family physician calls my health "a deck of cards" ready to fall at any moment. I have told each of my physicians that there is no secret to my survival. I continue to live through Divine Intervention, and that the Good Lord must have a reason for allowing me to remain on this plane of existence. When my job is done, whatever that may be, I will go Home for eternity. I no longer fear death.(Death and I have been on first-name basis for quite some time now.) I am convinced that my energy, or Soul if you wish, will continue on in some form. Our lives on earth are just a rest stop along the journey Home. Like a traveler, I will enjoy the scenery here until it is time to move on. Right now, I do not have the physical stamina to engage in some of my favorite social activities. But I have found friendship in the oddest places, one of which is on my computer keyboard. My "fellow birders" have given me their friendship, hope, and good will, and although they are "virtual" friends, they are every bit as real to me as friends that I have made throughout my lifetime. I give thanks to have the opportunity to visit with them daily, all from the comfort of my bedroom.

Good afternoon bird threaders. Happy to see you all with warm wishes and concerns for one of our posters. Makes for a better thread compared to what we use to have. I still see that one locationless posters still has a beef with AW. hmmmm who could that be? They should know AW don't care.
I am impressed with the una sites up and the change in attitude since their favorite poster has passed on. Great reading huh, Blue. I think the same unhappy poster here has made some comments on that thread as well.
Well the big white flakes are slowing down. All over the cars, road is wet and what is on the grass is starting to disappear as the temps rise. Ahhh, that is the only way I like that white stuff these days.
I hope everyone has a warm and cozy day.

I just think that if a person is young enough and suspects disease or things that might terminate this plane of existance, they should take all the precautions they can to enjoy living a little longer.
But I am well past that and GOD has blessed me with a reasonably good life and I have already survived a heart attack and a carotid artery surgery where the surgeon harvested a piece of vein out of my leg to make a splice. I did not take the precautions that I should have and I don't see much need to take the precautions now that the trail is getting close to the last bend in the road.
I am not going to stand in front of a train or try my luck at sky diving, but I am not going to worry about the time when the Creator thinks my work is done here. I just hope my work is satisfactory to the only JUDGE that counts.

wolfman is very wise
the quality of ones live is more important
than the quantity of ones final days ,....
to die a self sufficient man ,...
on your own terms ,
in your own home
is far better
than dying in a nursing home, hospice
or cold and sterile hospital room ,
while suffering the indignation of
IV lines ,
and automatic breathing aspirators ,
lying there , bored out of your mind
thinking of the others who have passed before you
painfully waiting for the end
from the nonchalant stares
of uncaring and malevolent strangers ,
#85844 Feb 13, 2013
Precautions should always be taken no matter what. God gave us nursing homes, hospitals, etc... Is for our well being and is for the individual to answer for themself. Not what you want for them.

I think the chill in the air and the rain coming has caused the ones outside to fly away.Couple in Conn. married for 80 years! Talk about a lifetime:) On a sad note, SARS like symptoms have been linked to around 11 deaths in the UK.
