We found a place   Galena KS   (the oldest mining town in KS)  about 7 miles from Joplin MO

   This is Shoal Creek looking out our
back door (sunset) very cool how the
clouds reflected on the water


 our private fishing dock (covered)
walleye, crappie are what most fish for so far just taking pics I have seen
Downy woodpeckers, a pair of cardinals, chickadees, tufted titmouse, grey squirrels,
geese,  (some little bitty woodpeckers not sure of kind) deer, and even a chipmunk or 2
 I didn't have my regular camera with me and my cell just doesn't zoom enough to capture.   
The temp was a crisp cool 19 degrees when both pics were taken, hence why I did not have
my slr digital with me.

The American bald-eagle migrates here in the winter can't wait to get a photo of them.

If you would like to read the history of Galena, KS you can click the link here GALENA
Happy New Year to each of you! 

If  I do not post for a little bit, we are in the process of moving, and no internet at new place

Thankful Thursday

Thursday, December 20 2018Luke 1:30-3130 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have 
found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, 
and you are to call him Jesus. 

Today I am thankful for:

My salvation
The Christmas season (not the commercialized version) but the 
birth of our Savior.
Heat to warm our home
groceries in the cupboard
friends helping in time of need
getting Christmas cards in the mail (snail mail)

Please pray for

My family and I had a falling out, I do not disagree, however they 
are my blood family and love them whole heatedly.
That Gator and I will find a place to move too!
without complications
WE can find help to help us move

Merry Christmas to all and be safe if you travel!

The week before Christmas

 Image result for happy birthday jesus

6 days until Christmas.  Where all around the world we celebrate Christmas.

Jesus is the reason for the season, without Christ there would be no CHRISTMAS

Christmas has became too commercialized, it is not about  Who gets the newest electronics, who
gets the most presents, or who spent the most money.  What happened to Christmas day being
celebrating with Family, going to Church services, celebrating Christ' birthday?

This year Gator and I will NOT get even one present, because my brother and his wife
are controlling my mom to the point she is making us move,  we have to be out on the 27th
NICE CHRISTMAS PRESENT?  were not fretting.  WE may end up living in our vehicle
as emergency housing even has a waiting list.   Our vehicle broke down last week 100 miles
from, home as we went to see one of Gator family members who was very sick.

we hopefully will be going Friday to get it.    WE are trusting in the Lord with all of our heart that
he continues to take care of us during this trying time
