Forgetting to remember is inconvenient.

Whoa, haven't posted for a few weeks, now all my favorites list is gone.
Just gave up posting for awhile as my batteries are out on my camera and I keep forgetting to get some. 
No fun to post without photos.
Forgetting is getting to be aggravating.
I don't shop except online and could order some.
I will do that today.
Been receiving some posts from Vee on my e-mail and I am so impressed with her strength and faith.
Grandson Ben settling into basic training.
Already showing leadership skills.
He won an athletic competition for his troop winning a 15 minute call home for himself and every member of his troop.
Ya Ben.
Learning to live with the cooler weather and trying not to have to turn on the new furnace yet.
Love to all and enjoy the fall.

Outdoor Wednesday.

I see this red roofed barn every time I go out my road to town.
It is in the distance but was able to get a pretty good close up shot.
I have driven around trying to find a road to this place but it evades me.
I like the red surprise I get when I drive this way.

Boy Scouts setting up for a camp out week-end on the Nazareth Campus where I volunteer on Fridays.

It was great to watch the activities of the scouts all over the campus.
They were here from all over the nation. 

Yes, I am a little envious, I just can't hike like that. LOL

Due to computer problems missed a lot of blogging days.
Hope things are all good now.
Many things been going on.

Lost a dear friend in Mississippi.
A friend, a member of The Sisters of Charity right here in my home town was murdered in Mississippi last week.
Two of them served a poor section of the state as the only health care givers.
Both RN Practitioners.
May they rest in peace.

Pink Saturday with a heavy heart.

It is Pink Saturday and one of my favorite memes.
Hope my computer is finally fixed after 4 attempts.
Last of August and our Crepe Myrtle is finally blooming.

Did not take my geranium outside this summer and it is just now blooming inside.
Love this geranium.

The leaf of the geranium is one of my favorites.

With my friends /Sisters of Charity at Nazareth Kentucky,
mourning the brutal murder of
Paula Merrill, scn and her co-worker Sr. Margaret.
Nurse Practitioners in one of the poorest sections of Mississippi.

Many, many persons with a heavy heart this week-end and in this case the only health care providers in that part of the state and folks will be without their kindness, generosity and life saving care they need.
In Jesus name, we pray.

My heart is heavy

Soulful Friday

Beautiful Nazareth Campus in Bardstown, Kentucky and myself are in mourning for the useless murder of one of our sisters in Mississippi.

Paula Merrill, SCN and her room mate Sr. Margaret were brutally murdered in their home in Missippi on Wednesday night.
It appears to have been a robbery, according to the officials in Miss.

Sr. Paula and Sr. Margaret were devoted registered nurse practitioners who  ran a clinic in the poor section of Mississippi devoting their time to all the needs of the people.
Medical, social and much counseling.
They were loved by all.

Paula Merrill, SCN

 I had just seen and spoke with Sr. Paula last Friday as she was at Nazareth, where I work on Friday, for a meeting.
She was so gracious and happy to see me.
She had worked at the Home Health Agency where I worked, a few years ago.

Our hearts are in pain at the loss of these two saintly women.
We are asked to pray for them and their families and those who did this terrible crime.

Good Fences, around and about.

Missed a few Thursdays, glad to be back.

 Entrance to a new home for one of our children and family.

One of the oldest and at one time one of the most beautiful homes in our town.
Once in the middle of a huge plantation, now squeezed in between "progress" and no one wants.

 Fenced in and coming down.
One of the oldest and most beautiful old plantations sitting right in the middle of town.
Too big and old to be moved, so sad.

 A new look to our backyard neighbor's chain link fence.
