Sadie Hawkins Day

Sadie Hawkins Day     Lots of Time info

When we were much younger, it was known that Feb. 29 was not only leap year, but Sadie Hawkins Day as well.
That meant a girl could propose to a boy -- that day only. I took advantage of it and proposed to Steve. Another couple was with us and she proposed to him. I don't think they got married.



Of course, later he proposed to me and made it 'official'. :)  PS: I assume it is the same tree.

King James Version

Bible Versions – Some people say the Bible is not true. Or that the King James Version is out of date and should not be used. I have read the KJV all my life and have no problem with it. It is the Bible that was used for all the great revivals down through the ages. Ever since there have been so many different versions, there have been no great revivals. Think on that a minute! Our country is in a mess and people don’t respect the things of God like they used to when there was only the KJV.

There are so many versions now, they are confusing. They don’t say the same thing and leave out important verses or change the meaning to important words. They are also copyrighted, which means the publisher does not want anyone to copy it. Why?  I believe it is because of a money issue. People know the Bible is, and has been for years, a best seller. They want in on the profits. The KJV is not copyrighted.

Some people say they cannot understand the KJV because it is Old English so it is hard to comprehend the meaning so they need an easier Bible to read. I have never had a problem with it. I love its flow of words. When there is something I don’t understand I look up the word in a dictionary. As for the masculine sounding text, I never had a problem of thinking ‘man’ meant only men. In those instances, man means mankind = people = you and me!

When I memorize verses, I want them to be KJV. If not, which version would I choose? I believe Satan has brought all the versions about to make things confusing. Confusion is of the devil – not of God. Go figure. Now, I am not going to put you down if you read another version. That’s your choice. But, try reading the King James Version!! Let God speak to you and you will understand.


This morning, it was so nice I could sit on the porch swing while still dark and enjoy the quietness of the morning. I thought of this poem while sitting there. It is called a 'sense' poem. Enjoy.

Granola

I have been craving granola for several weeks. Not store-bought, but my own home made. I finally remembered to buy the old-fashioned oats this weekend and yeterday made it. It tasted so good this morning for breakfast. I don't know why I don't make it more often! I thought it was neat I was craving one of my home-made items!

An Answer

A few months ago, I posted a message to a friend that I had lost communication with, to contact me.  SHE DID!!!!

A Good Movie for History

Homeschoolers (and others:) : If you can find the movie Lafayette-The Lost Hero, it is a good one to watch for US / French Revolutions. And to know why there are so many places n America named Lafayette. I watched it on Netflix. Also, I watched the Revolutionary War series documentary. A good watch for anyone who wants to have a review of our country's beginnings. If you don't have time to watch all 13 episodes, watch the last two. They are a review of all.
If you type in Revolutionary war, you will come up with more. I have them in my queue.

We signed up for Netflix a couple months ago for the base plan. It is so nice to watch TV without commercials! Of course, we watch oldies, but we can  also watch them without too much embarrassment, also.

Wow, just when I thought I was doing so good. Another reason not to eat French fries and potato chips.
But, Breads, coffee and prunes, too?! Gotta think about that one!

Military Discounts

Just in case you do not know. Lowe's and Sears gives a 10 % military discount. At Lowe's, if the item is already a percentage off, they do not give the discount, because the computer will not do it. (Hey,I guess they don't know computers will do what they are programmed to do!) If it is a sale price, you get the discount, though.

However, they do not tell you. You have to ask them. It seems to me that if they want to honor the military, they could advertise it. I know they probably think by not doing so, they save money. But, I bet more people would shop at their places if they knew and I assume they would make money. Well, that is just my way of looking at it.

Does anyone else know of places that offer the discount. Or any discount? Well, besides Senior citizen. I have found that most of them, you have to ask for it, too. And they all have different ages they require, so you don't know if you qualify or not.
