Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Bible Cover

I was out walking at 6:45 this morning in the dark. I was wearing a VERY bright day glow green sweatshirt and the few cars that did pass me probably had to put their sun glasses on. : ) It was 32 degrees and windy and once the sun came up it was a pretty day.  I walked the farm loop and then around town.  I saw a couple of deer in one of the corn fields that now have no corn.

It was very quiet this morning.  Didn't see anyone.
Snapped these two pictures along the way, both in town.

I walked 6 miles.
Sunrise: 7:37

The Bible cover I had for my old Bible is too small for my new one so we went out to get a new one.  I had seen them in Walmart so we went there first.  They didn't have any left.  Then we went to check in a little book store in Oakland.  They didn't have them either.  We didn't know where else to look around here so just came back home and thought we'd go farther afield another day.

When we got back home I checked my email and there was message from Vera Bradly telling about a sale on book covers.  So I bought a real nice one on line for a really good price.  : )

I took the puzzle apart and was going to start another one but never got around to it.  Ended up transferring more of my notes from one Bible to the other.  I made it to the book of Luke.

I made lasagna for supper and we plan nice quiet evening at home as we do most days.

Hope your day has been a happy one.

  1. That's what John says to me nearly every morning. He says, "Good morning." I say, "What's good about it?" He says, we both woke up. Makes me laugh every time.

    I want to see that new Bible Cover when it comes in...

  2. "We both woke up."

    Would you believe that I'm on my way to bed at 9:33? So tired these days.

  3. I'm with Vee...post a picture of your new bible cover. Maybe I should check there for a cover for my new Every Day Life Bible...Thanks for the thought!

  4. Karen - thought you might like to know that I went to the Vera Bradley website to look for a cover for my bible and they were sold-out! I love the patterns on the fabric. You are lucky that you got yours before they were sold out. They look really nice! I am going to check at the Christian Bookstore down the street to see what they have. Have a happy Sunday!

  5. What a surprise to find a Vera Bradley cover for your Bible! That is a treat!

    I hope you are enjoying your quiet evening at home.

  6. I know how you LOVE Vera Bradley :)
