"Falling in love is the easy part.
It is quite different from being in love.
If you are blessed,
you fall in love with your spouse again a little bit every day.
Love is a choice,
a decision to love no matter what the day brings.
You are in love because you choose to be in love.
You made a promise, a commitment, to love each other."

Good morning Friends ~ I woke up around 3 and decided to get up as I wasn't sleepy anymore. I got online, read some comments cried, wrote some emails, and am sipping on my second/last cup of coffee for the day while nibbling on a chocolate muffin.

I've got so many ideas running around in my head of things I want to do to continue on keeping up our little compound/haven here. They will keep me busy from here on out and I am glad. I see and feel DH everywhere and that is so comforting.

I got a lovely pkg. yesterday of 1 jar of spicy basil apple jelly and one of raspberry jam and a lovely note. The jars are sitting under my funky little Christmas tree. :-)

I am so itching to work with creating pieces for my Etsy shop. I sold a set of 4 miniature framed, embroidered and beaded hearts this week and that was the end of my needlework listed, so I need to get more uploaded. Will do it after Christmas. I've got pieces just about ready to go and my mind is working on creating even though my hands aren't quite doing so yet. Although, I did work on a small heart yesterday. I love hearts and flowers.

A few minutes ago I opened my Bible to Psalms and here is the verse meant for me today:

Psa 28:7  The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

Maybe it will be the verse for you today also.

Again, let me say a heartfelt thank you for all of your love and support. You just don’t realize what that means to me.

Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady Lorraine


  1. You get up at 3 Missy, you do NOT go read emails/blogs and stay up! Computer blue light completely wakes the brain up, when you probably could( should), have gone back to sleep.You make yourself go back to bed and stay there until 6 AM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Sleep and rest are vital for your body/brain, no matter how much you are awake at 3 AM! love, your bossy friend, Gina

  2. I think what we are seeing is God's presence in your life. He is giving you a measure of peace and that is wonderful. The Psalms are great.
