This was a hard letter to come up with words--everyone already picked the obvious ones--so I thought of  SIGN ON THE X.

from Wickepedia

An x mark (also known as a cross, x, ex, exmark or into mark[1]) is a mark (x, ×, X, , , , , , etc.) used to indicate the concept of negation (for example "no, this has not been verified" or "no, I don't agree") as well as affirmation (for example in election ballot papers or in x marks the spot). It is often used opposite the tick or check mark (or the O mark used in Japan.)
It is also used as a replacement for a signature for a person who is illiterate and thus cannot write their name. Typically, the writing of an X used for this purpose must be witnessed to be valid.
As a verb, to ex off/out or to cross off/out means to add such a mark. It is quite common, especially on printed forms and document, for there to be squares in which to place x marks, or interchangeably checks. While it is more common in America[citation needed] and Germany for people to check a square box with a cross than a tick, in some countries a tick (✓) or even a v mark[citation needed] is used

How many times do we daily sign by the X?  Just a thought.

Some more examples of X's I found:

Don't go near this X.

Or don't  ignore this X

How often do we see this X!

This is Latin for prescription meaning "take a potion".

Enjoying vacation this week in Colorado--we are in Buena Vista Colorado about 1.5 hours from  the fires in Colorado Springs.

We are going to have to change our route back home and really feel so bad for all the people losing their homes. There are also some landmarks that have been damaged here in this gorgeous state.

Blue Monday - Mount Princeton Hot Springs

We are on vacation in Colorado and today went to the Mount Princeton Hot Springs.  What a magnificent setting for a pool and hot tub, mountains all around.

We all enjoyed riding the long slide and soaking and swimming in the fabulous water with perfect tempature.

Getting out of the pool and walking up the hill to the slide entrance was VERY chilly (those mountain breezes).  But once you hit the hot springs water it was heavenly.

Have lots of fun activities planned and cousins are having a fabulous time together.

My contribution the letter W is WORSHIP.

I am so thankful that I live in a country that I have the freedom and priviledge to WORSHIP as I want to.  I belong to our church choir and we sing each weekend.  We consider ourselves WORSHIP leaders to the congregation.

From Encyclopedia Britannica:

broadly defined, the response to the appearance of that which is accepted as the holy-that is, to a sacred, transcendent power or being. Characteristic modes of response to the holy include cultic acts of all kinds: ritual drama, prayers of many sorts, dancing, ecstatic speech, veneration of various persons and objects, sermons, silent meditation, and sacred music and song. Also included in worship are acts of private response: spoken or unspoken prayers, silence, the assumption of particular postures, ritual acts and gestures, and individual acts of veneration of persons or objects.
Some examples of our worship services:

The stage was set for the week of "Breakaway" (our childrens vacation bible school).

A regulare weekend set.

Our congregation can number in the hundreds and we have screens for the WORSHIPERS who are not familiar with a particular song.  We do not have hymnals.

Our WORSHIP goes outside the church building also, we have what we call "LIFE GROUPS".  Their are around 150 groups of 10 to 20 people who meet in homes twice a month for fellowship and bible study--to do life together.

Stop by and read all the other ABC posts this week.

No matter how you remember the 10 commandments they never change how they were originally
given to us!!!

Hope you enjoyed a little humor to start off yer Monday!!

                                                                    FATHERS DAY 1970

Ephesions 6:4

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

This picture was taken in 1970 when my Grandpa Suppess was in the hospital.  My Dad, Hubby and 4-month son Kevin came to visit him.

The fathers in this generation have all ben godly men and have raised their children in the knowledge of God.
I snapped a picture of the 4 generations that day and I'm so glad I have it now.

My Son Kevin is 42 now and is celebrating Fathers Day with my grandson Cody who is 9 today in Colorado.

My Daddy and Grandpa are in Heaven today and we really miss them being here.

We heard a wonderful Fathers Day message in church this morning  (MACHO MAN). My daughter, SIL and grandchildren were there with their Dad and Grandpa.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Dad or memories of Dad today.

ABC Wednesday this week is the letter V.

My choice for V this week is VICTORIOUS.  VICTORY, VICTOR !!!!!!!.

The definition of victorious is a triumph over an obsticle.  One who defeats an adversary.


My sister Kathy has been going through a battle for the past eight weeks.  After being diagnosed with breast cancer she had a masectomy yesterday and she has OVERCOME and is a VICTOR.

Her lymph nodes were negative and she does not have to undergo any chemotherapy or radiation.

I felt there was no other V word that I could use for ABC Wednesday. Thank you for endulging some of my personal life.

Let's celebrate this victory!!

After a little difficulty adding my wedding photos to my laptop, I have added a Smilebox collage to show my Wedding Pictures.

We were married July 30, 1966 while my husband was between basic training and technical school. We had planned a summer wedding but the Air Force did not cooperate. My fiance's commanding officer let him have a weekend off to get married so my Mom and I called all the guests, no time to send out invitations.

I had already purchased my dress in the spring. My fiance came home on Friday night, we were married Saturday and he left Sunday. I didn't see him for 3 weeks right before he found out where he would be stationed.

My sisters Debbie and Kathy were my bridesmaids, my SIL Virginia my Matron of Honor and my 5 yr old sister Lori my flowergirl. My husbands brother was the Best Man, cousin and friend were ushers and my 2nd cousin my ring bearer.

All the pictues were done in black & white--normally done for that time.

We will be celebrating our 46th Wedding Anniversary this July.

I know I'm late to the party, but hopefully you will come by to see my picture.

Blue Monday

Blue Monday is here and it's warming up around here. I have some pics of some of my new metal flowers that I made.  One is bright blue with a yellow center.

My husband built the posts for the water faucets for each garden so I painted them green for the stems.

I also painted a few sunflowers for my Kansas gardens.

New Red Flowers

As I was strolling through a garden center last week I spotted this flower I had never seen before.  It is an annual but I love it.

The name is Amaranthus and it is ideal for backgrounds, it grows 18 to 24" tall.

My coneflowers are blooming nicely this week also.

Kansas City is known for it's UNDERGROUND CAVES.  Today I'd like to share with you what I learned on Wickipdedia.

SubTropolis is a 55,000,000 square foot , 1,100 acre manmade cave in the bluffs above the Missouri  River in Kansas City, MO.  It is claimed to be the worlds largest underground storage facility.

It is dug into Bethany Falls limestone mine and it is at 160 feet beneath the surface.  It containes seven miles of paved roads and several miles of railroad track.

The mine maintains a temp of between 65 and 70 degrees Faharenheit year-round.

SubTropolis houses around 50 businesses and organizations.

To name a few:
Cerner Corp.
Hallmark Cards
US Postal Service
Vanguared Packaging

Also the caves sponsor the Annual "Groundhog Run" which is celebrating it's 31st year in 2013 for Children With Disabilities.

Hope you enjoy my Kansas City U today.

Pink Saturday - Pink Petunias popping up everywhere

One of my favorite annuals are petunias, especially the wave petunias.  I have them planted in a couple of places and they are so cheery to me.

I love using my old crockery pot on my front porch.

My pretty white wooden pitcher holding some more pink petunias.

Using the instagram app I took a picture of some plants I will put in pots tomorrow.

Hope you enjoyed my pinks today.  I really love participating in PINK SATURDAY  and have been for the last three years. 

Check out Beverly's friends and their posts too.
