O Glorious Love


In the darkness Jesus found me
Touch my eyes and made me see  
Broke the chains that longed had bound me
Gave me life and liberty

O glorious love that Christ my Lord, divine
That made Him stoop to save a soul like mine
Through all my days and then in heaven above
My soul will silence never
I'll worship Him forever
And praise Him for His glorious love   

Oh amazing truth to ponder
He whom angel host attend
Lord of Heaven thou somewhat wonder
He became the sinners friend


O glorious love that Christ my Lord, divine
That made Him stoop to save a soul like mine
Through all my days and then in heaven above
My soul will silence never
I'll worship Him forever
And praise Him for His glorious love


And praise Him for His glorious love
And praise Him for His glorious love

Figs and pink sand

How can two birds be so lovely~these are pics from my cousin who lives in Australia, Well happy PINK SATURDAY to all who read this post.  events of the summer have been very eventful for our families.  We have lost most of the members of the otherside of the name i used to carry, in other words my childrens father, uncle and grandfather have all passed away with in six months of each other, my daughter and I have had our summer romances ,  and my other daughter has moved into a new house, my son and his wife came over from Bolivia who i probable will not be able to see because  we do not have the finances,  but we talk on skype and the phone alot. and fall has finally arrived with snow on the mountain and fall colore settling in.  the garden  is mostly in and the mice are hungry and withstanding all pest controls,  there is a big hole in my trailer to fix and the propane heater for the long winter under the trailer is ready.    my life does sound rather predicatble now doesn't it. 
Except for PINK SATURDAY , we have all the exciting things to look at and be thankful for,

this was such a pretty pink and pretty wedding party i had to include it also here
The foggy salmon colored smoke of the summer clouded the skies,

i loved this beach also , the sand looks a soft pink
and lastly is food, a FIG, that perhaps could use a bit of imagination to wonder where the pink is, but does it not make your mouth water.

have a good weekend everyone!

Hello Everyone!  it has ben a long time since i have been blogging, seems like this month has gone b so fast and a short time since May 30 Pink Saturday.  GUESS what!!!!!!!!  I finally mailed the boxes for the draw today ladies, they are on the way,  i am sorry it took so long and i am a terrible one to go to the post office, but you should get them in two weeks as i sent them ground.
something for PINK SAT|URDAY.......
what do you notice in this picture???  I think it s very funny actually!!!....these people are actually on top of a mountain and there is this person wearing a pink housecoat or something ...........what do you think?


These are lupins in my yard.  I took a walk around and suddenly came upon these growing in the middle of nowhere.  they are so pretty... 

here is my granddaughter in pink and she made a snow girl out of styrofoam balls that she got out of my craft drawers.  that is the first place she goes , she loves craft things, we used pink tissue for the skirt and bib. 

thought for the day.....

Isaiah 26

1In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
2Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
3Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
4Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

I love verse 1 where God says that anthing in my life that is a wall or i come up against problems that are too hearbreaking or too much for me to handle He will open the doors and let me see the way to another person, or thought, or way of handling a certain situation.  He will, instead of the barriers, appoint a way of salvation.  These verses have been such a comfort to me in the last two weeks, so i hope they bless you too.

Have a very wonderful PINK SATURDAY

Triple Birthday

10:00 pm has arrived and the draw has been done and here are the winners in order of the pictures shown below, each one has been emailed but just in case you don't get it please leave another message on this post, thank you so much for stopy by, I am so excited for my first winners and they are:..............
Shelia  from Note Songs  #!  for  my 60th birthday draw
Debbie  from Debbie-Dabble #2 for my 200th post for pink saturday posts

Hello Everyone!!  what an exciting time for us all!!  Happy 2nd Anniversary for Pink Saturday, such fun to see all the pink pictures and creations, my big 60th this year on May 30th actually and I have just noticed it is my 200th post.  So I will be sending out two gifts from the draw for all of you who leave a note on my blog.  Draw closes 10:00pm my time in BC as that is when i probably will turn in from all the excitement from the day. 

I have already received presents and flowers from my daughter, wth her daughter,  and some more will be happening next week which I will post pictures later.  We went out for dinner at the Blue Fin for sushi.  They have the best food there and for the three of us the cost was only $67.00

Here are the prizes, a surprize  in the order they will be sent........

Well, people, friends, ladies and who ever will be seeing this blog--these last two months have been quite something with a little bit of stress on the mind and I have struggled thru it all wondering how come God let these things happen.  And one thing this week stands out in my mind and that is Psalms 78........

He did miracles in the sight of their fathers in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan. 68 but he chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion, which he loved.
                  13 He divided the sea and led them through; he made the water stand firm like a wall.
                  14 He guided them with the cloud by day and with light from the fire all night.
                  15 He split the rocks in the desert and gave them water as abundant as the seas;
                  16 he brought streams out of a rocky crag and made water flow down like rivers.

38 Yet he was merciful; he forgave their iniquities and did not destroy them. Time after time he restrained his anger and did not stir up his full wrath.

69 He built his sanctuary like the heights, like the earth that he established forever.
70 He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens;
72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.

Well, if He can chose David and all his sins that he had done, He can choose me too....and I am glad He did, by sending me health, friends who comfort, advise, love, and understanding, forgiveness.  So Ladies, have a wonderful
Pink Saturday , please visit Bev our host of Pink Saturday by clicking the picture on the sidebar...

Part ##2 for Pink Saturday

What a busy morning!  Here are some pictures of the church i go to and the flowers that people have brought...
the white flowers were closer in the beginning!!
OK! now for potluck food, it is a good thing adventists always bring lots of food as the group of 10 extra Pathfinders came down from Prince George......All vegetarian including, potato salad, peanut butter roast, veggie spring rolls made by the Philipino pastors wife, perogies, salads,  Linketts from Loma Linda, beans, bread, and plenty of dessert and more on other tables......usually those who cannot make it to church get some paper plates with a variety of food taken to them also...
you might want to click on the utube music also --it is a very nice song


Pink Day.............

Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow!

I just love this song the way Ivan Parker sings it, i'm sorry ladies, i just ran out of time this week to put anything down here for Easter but check back later this afternoon and i shall have some things down here that i have done, and maybe some pictures of potluck food for today.... it is communion sabbath also it is a busy weekend.... in the mean time  Have a great Pink Day!!!!!
Go ahead drive the nails in My hands,
Laugh at Me where you stand.
Go ahead, and say it isn't Me,
The day will come when you will see,

'Cause I'll rise again.
There's no pow'r on earth can tie Me down.
Yes, I'll rise again,
Death can't keep Me in the ground.

Go ahead mock My name,
My love for you is still the same.
Go ahead and bury Me,
But very soon I will be free.

'Cause I'll rise again.
There's no pow'r on earth can tie Me down.
Yes, I'll rise again,
Death can't keep Me in the ground.

Go ahead, and say I'm dead and gone,
But you will see that you were wrong.
Go ahead, and try to hide the Son,
But all will see that I'm the One.

"Cause I'll come again.
There's no pow'r on earth can keep it back.
Yes, I'll come again;
Come to take My people back
Yes I'll come again;
Come to take My people back

OK!  here is one thing i did this week and one pink bowl measuring cup!!!!!  These are orange rolls, using a sweet dough with a sour cream and orange glaze.  Very fattening and sugary but very good........

different things this week

This week as usual i am on the road at 7am or ten after is usually the case and then i set the cruise at 120 ks and go the 69ks to work.  the sun is just starting to rise and such beauty i see as the red rays of the sun go beyond the circle of the earth, almost every morning the skies are pink or red or then the oposite happens and the dark clouds make it so much like night....well sort of!!

here is an evening picture as i arrived home it was snowing and raining and sunny at the same time.....

the colors are fantastic.  God is so great to create such and affect.
I saw a couple of chocolate brown moose also while going to work on the straight stretch, they bounded over the fince and i just caught the sight on one on my camera---can you see it on the left hand side of the picture, you can't miss it really!!!!!.........about a quarter of the way up past the cracks in my windshield....oh well i tried.....

then i took a picture of a funny dog with two colored eyes, and a beaver dam, but i never see any beavers...

another view of  the mountains in full form on a daily basis in the morning, fantastic view as i rise over a crest in the windy road.

Garden Green Pea Souffle

This turned out amazingly good!   At first i thought it was very basic as it has everything that was in the fridge and not really measured as I find that a difficult thing to do...but here goes and you may want to do some adjustments yourself.......

2 1/2 cups cooked fresh or frozen garden peas~ some will be blended and some you will save for decoration
1       cup of cooked red quinoa/cous cous ~ i used a mixture

In the blender--

2 extra large egg
about a quarter brick of medium tofu
one clove garlic
2 large tbsp chopped onion
oh! yes and a squeeze or two of lemon
a bit of dill
salt and pepper
about a quarter cup of pistachio

blend this and add some peas and blend again so that it has small chunks still, pour into quinoa mixture and then into  a buttered bowl ~ you can either bake this or i just put it in the microwave for three minutes because there was just me.
decorate with our favorite mayo, ginger, slice of strawberry and a sprig of dill with the rest of the peas around and anything else you would is good with salsa too

lacy cactus

I am so excited as i was wondering what to do for pink things today!!!!......I walked into my library where all my plants love to be, the sun shines just right and in their direction in the morning, and what do i see but a very beautiful white cactus  bloom with a very pink center!!!

Well spring is finally here -- snow has melted, swans have landed in the lake, geese and robins have been here for a while now, trees are beginning to bud and someone said the gooseberry bushes have green leaves!!!! which is a sure sign also.  Another good sign is the woodpecker which i heard last week.
Do we dare change our snow tires yet? or will the weather play a trick on us---hahah

the birds have been filling the air with song and it surely is a great sound......
happy pink saturday everyone.

Song of Solomon 2:12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;

What am I cooking today???.................... probably will make a green salad with fresh strawberries and pecans.    This looks pretty too.  It could be an ice cream mold with pistachio ......

happy birthday
