24 little hours. Does anyone remember that old Dinah Washington song? It was one of my favorites and still is today. It is SO Good to see you on this rainy, dreary Tuesday here in East Tn. Get your coffee, (if you are tired of coffee have some hot tea, or there is some of the Godiva hot chocolate Beth gave me) I just want you to be happy and comfortable. The difference in today and yesterday is astounding. Yesterday was so sunny and beautiful. I am almost ashamed to tell you, but I find beauty in rainy days too. Without sounding like a pollyanna,( which I am sooooo not) if we didn't have the rain we wouldn't appreciate the sunshine. As I was thinking about the difference in yesterday and today, and when that song came to my mind, I couldn't help but reflect how true those words are. 24 hours can change our lives completely. Today all is fine, then we get devastating news. 24 hours. Anyway it makes you think doesn't it? 24 little hours. How our lives can change for the good and the bad. Some of us are going through some difficult times, thinking job changes, moving, worried about children, health issues, but one day we get good news. 24 little hours make such a difference. As I started this post, I had no idea what I was going to say. do you all do that? I just start to blog and it all comes together. (Haphazzardly sometimes).But I think I have been thinking of all the changes in my own life the last few years. Some sad, some happy, some mundane. But changes. Do you go with the flow or do you fight it? Do you let go and let God or do you fight Him? I do a bit of all of this, but I am so going to try to make my 24 hours count. Will you join me.
I thought I would post some of my favorite pictures. Indulge me as I know you have seen them all before. These are just a few things that make me smile.
This old mirror that has who it is to go on the back. I wonder why they didn't get it. Did they think it was too old and ugly? Well I love it.
These are all some of the things that make me smile. Of course my family and friends are the source of most of my smiles. As well as you who come Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: I pray that those of you having hard times right now, will have a glorious 24 hours
PSS: BTW I have that CD in my car and listen to it often.
PSSS: Lets enjoy the last few (we hope) winter days and think spring.Some of you have been pelted with snow week after week. I hope you soon have sunny days.
