FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

HAPPY VALENTINES

WHEN I THINK ABOUT LOVE, THE GREATEST, THE PUREST, THE BIGGEST I THINK ABOUT MY SAVIOR. I DO NOT OF ANY OTHER THAT WOULD HAVE GIVEN HIS PRECIOUS LIFE FOR ME. THEN I THINK ABOUT THE LOVE OF A MOTHER FOR HIS CHILD, THERE IS NOTHING WE WOULD NOT DO FOR OUR KIDS, CERTAINLY THE CLOSEST THING TO THE LOVE OF GOD FOR US. THEN I THINK ABOUT MY HUSBAND OF SO MANY YEARS AND HOW MUCH WE LOVE EACH OTHER. WE HAVE CHANGE SO MUCH PHYSICALLY, WE HAVE GOTTEN OLDER AND SOMETIMES NOT NECESSARILY WISER BUT THE ONE THING THAT HAVE ENDURE IS OUR LOVE FOR EACH OTHER. THEN IS MY DEAR FAMILY FOR WHICH I'M SO THANKFUL FOR HAVING CLOSE TO ME, DRAMA AND ALL. AND LASTY MY DEAR FRIENDS, THE ONES THAT TAKE CARE OF ME AND THE ONES THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN CARE OF. I THOUGHT ABOUT THE REASON WHY I LOVE ALL THIS PEOPLE AND I REALIZE THAT IS THE WORK OF GOD IN MY HEART. IF I DIDN'T HAVE THE LORD I BELIEVE MY CAPACITY FOR LOVE WILL BE SO HINDERED BY OTHER THINGS. I WILL PROBABLY BE NEGOTIATING MY LOVE THRU LIFE. THERE IS NOTHING TO NEGOTIATE. I  LOVE BECAUSE HE LOVE ME FIRST. SO TODAY AND EVERYDAY LET US TAKE TIME TO THINK ABOUT THE BIGGEST LOVE WE WILL EVER KNOW, ABOUT THE ONES THAT GOD HAVE BLESS US WITH IN OUR LIVES AND LET US TELL, WE NEED TO HEAR IT, NOT ONLY TODAY, BUT ALWAYS AND EVERYDAY. 


                                       SOME EYE CANDY FOR MY PINKY FRIENDS.











THANKS YOU ALL FOR STOPPING BY AND TO OUR SWEET HOSTESS MS BEVERLY @ HOW SWEET THE SOUND FOR HAVING US. YOUR COMMENTS WILL MAKE MY DAY.BLESSINGS, MARTA.

Martha's Favorites said...

Hi Marta: Love your post. I too am so grateful for Jesus and what he has done in my life. You would not believe all the small miricles I have received in my life. Your figurines are stunning. I cannot pick which one I like the best. I want them all. Yes, I do think it would be easier to list what we do not collect. We love the same things. I hope the weather is not causing you any problems. Blessings my new found friend. Martha

Hi Marta, Happy Pink Saturday to you. My best friend, Carol H.
and I were visiting in Salado and she told me you had a blog that had something to do with Pink! I told her it was probably Pink Saturday! So welcome, fellow Texas gal, love your pinks today!

So sorry that I missed you yesterday. It seemed like the day just ran away from me! But, with this being ♥Valentine's Day♥ what better time for me to stop by to see your Pink Saturday goodies.

It's been a long and dark winter up here near Canada so filling myself up with pink is my way on the weekend of chasing away the blues - not that blue isn't a nice color, too☺

Thanks so much for sharing. After all, isn't sharing one of life's greatest pleasures?

♫Happy Valentine's Day♫
