We are having a major ice and snow storm here in the Midwest. A huge limb off my Maple tree fell right after I went back inside from throwing some stale crackers out for the birds this morning.
I had been standing right where the limb fell. Isn't God good?
My head could have been bashed in, but instead he protected me.

I had to take Elizabeth to work in this mess so I went by the Dollar store while I was out. I got some Baby Breath seeds for the memorial garden for John. I also got an angel that has the Scripture: Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. It is on a tablet with the angel above it.
I need to take some pictures and just post what I got because it is really neat.

I hope we don't lose our power today but it is a real possibility. It is one of the worst storms I have seen around here for awhile. It was just 70 degrees here a few days ago and now this.

I want to thank everyone who has left comments and e-mailed me. It means alot. love Nita

Nita, did you get the pictures I emailed you on the memorial garden I sent them to email address listed on your blog about 5 days ago. CF

Nathalie Thompson said...

No, you hadn't told me yet that Elizabeth got her card. I'm glad she liked it. I was JUST thinking about you today and wondered if you got my mail. :)

I am sending a package to a friend today (and maybe why I thought of you) who lost her husband to a drunk driver over a year ago and is having a hard time still. I need to connect her with your blog.

red tin heart said...

CF: I did get those. Thank you very much. They were very pretty.

Fiona: I would love to plant some roses, and some Spider Lilies. An assortment of many things. I am also making plans for a fern garden too. I can get them in my sister's woods.
She has a lot of beautiful property that is covered with them.

Deena: The snow and ice melted as fast as it came. It was so strange. The ice did alot of damage around here though. Everywhere I went today I saw downed trees and limbs. Many folks lost their power, luckily we did not. xoxo nita

red tin heart said...

Nathalie: It was a wonderful card. She really liked it. I had to tell her about the inchies. She was fascinated by them and said she would like to try to make some.
I would love your friends link. Or you can give mine to her. Love nita

Hope that storm has left you and your weather has improved! Your memorial garden is going to be lovely and a place where you will feel such peace.

I am looking forward to seeing the plates of a future mosaic of yours!

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Oh Nita, what a mess. Glad you are all safe. Stay warm.

red tin heart said...

Susan: It was a mess! Our yard looked like a lagoon after all the ice and snow melted. Our neighbor's yard looked even worse than ours. I thank God it was not a worse storm than it was. Hope you are doing good friend. I have thought about you for 2 days. I was at Wal-Mart and saw material on sale and thought it would be great for your quilt making.
xoxo Nita

Penny: I will get those posted this weekend. I love the plates Mom gave me. They are very old.
