VTT -a different take.We could take some lessons and happy birthday one special girl.

Just a little different take on
Vintage Thingie Thursday


What I and millions of others have seen on the TV these last few days, holds enough messages and examples to give the whole world a swift kick in the a--.
The faith, comradery, courage, and organization was amazing.
So many times when we have a bad day and hurt innocent bystanders with our words or actions we want to blame it on
"I'm just under a lot of stress right now."
How much more stress can one endure than to be trapped many, many feet below the surface of the earth?
No one came out mad, angry, blaming others and I think that is due to the organization and planning that went into this project.
Yes a project, just like we are assigned at work or at school or in our own homes.

I so thank God for the safe return of the miners and continue to pray that the world will see what an opportunity is on display here to encourage us to  turn our own lives around.

Yes I will do that for a few days, being human, but in a week or two I will be back to my old nagging, whinny ways again. 
Guess I better pray for myself to see the light.
 Old fashioned values for my 
Vintage Thingie Thursday
Go here to see others.

Happy Birthday to one very special little granddaughter. We love you so much.
