SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'

I love the sound of rain anytime but especially when I'm getting into bed.  It's delicious to drift off asleep listening to rain.   I think the best sound of rain I ever experienced was in our barn where we fed the horses.  The barn had a metal roof and the rain made wonderful sounds.   It was very peaceful smelling the rain, the sweet feed, and the hay and listening to the horses munch away.  I wanted to move out there but my husband said no... smile

QUOTES, LINKS & SEASONAL LINKS

"Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sellp-song on our roof at night--
And I love the rain."
- Langston Hughes
 



"It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you've got it, you want--oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
--Mark Twain

The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If you have a friend who offers you cuttings from a plant, I hope you have a potato with you.
If your friend kindly offers you cuttings of that plant you admire, take out your potato. Cut off a chunk from one end of the potato, and make holes in it with a chopstick or ballpoint-pen cap. The holes should be about the size of the plant's stems. Gently insert the cuttings into the holes. Then put the potato piece with the cuttings in a bag or box, and they should stay safe and moist during your trip home without any water spills on your car floor or upholstery.

Once the cuttings are home, you should mist them with a solution of one-quarter teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to two cups of water. This will help prevent them from getting a fungal spore infection.

Question: Why are retirees so slow to clean out the basement, attic or garage?
Answer: They know that as soon as they do, one of their adult kids will want to store stuff there.
 




Bill was the laziest man in the world and he never did a lick of physical work in all his life.
One night he saw his wife carrying a heavy basket of laundry up the basement stairs.
"Honey" he shouted, "This has got to stop.  For years you have been carrying the clothing up the stairs in that big heavy basket.  Enough!!
Today, not tomorrow, but today, you go in to town and get yourself a smaller basket and make two trips."
No one knows how Bill fell down that flight of stairs.

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.

Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
