Crackers in My Shoe

I like soul food, but this isn’t what I had in mind!


How did this happen, you ask?  Oh, I can be haphazard and lackadaisical sometimes. I meant for the crackers to land in a plastic container on the cabinet above, but I dumped them too quickly, in a container that was too small.  It didn’t help matters that I was stepping over my own shoes that I carelessly left in the kitchen last night.

Next time I wear these, my walk may be a little crumby, unless I clean them up.  Our Christian walk can get crumby at times too.  Being apathetic and careless, perhaps easily stumbling into sin, will allow Satan to get a foothold on our lives.  Pun intended. Smile Let’s do our best to not let that happen!  Hugs to all of you!

America the Beautiful with Norman Rockwell’s Beloved Artwork

Hi friends.  As we get caught up in the politics of our time,

Pic for Mz. Carnz8

let’s take a moment to rest and reflect, remembering our love for God who has blessed our country so,


our love for the people who have given of themselves,

NR family tree

and our love for our land, in all its splendor.



America the Beautiful!
Words by Katharine Lee Bates,
Melody by Samuel Ward

O beautiful for spacious skies,

Sunset Norman Rockwell 
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!


America! America!

God shed his grace on thee

Freedom of Worship Norman Rockwell

And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

Norman Rockwell - Ocean

O beautiful for pilgrim feet

Whose stern impassioned stress

A thoroughfare of freedom beat
Across the wilderness!

America! America!

God mend thine every flaw,

Rockwell - Lincoln for the Defense 
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.

And mercy more than life!


America! America!

May God thy gold refine


Till all success be nobleness

And every gain divine!



O beautiful for patriot dream


That sees beyond the years

Thine alabaster cities gleam

Undimmed by human tears!

America! America!

“Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power.”  
Benjamin Franklin


“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”  John F. Kennedy


“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”  Ronald Reagan
