The Doctor will see you now....

I put this picture of my niece Lauryn on my screen saver at work because I knew it would make me smile all week......Each time I booted up there she was, all suited up and ready for her first patient. I smiled just as big this morning as last week when it was first forwarded from my brother last week. Now I ask you, would you worry about what she might do with a needle?

Other things of note......Saw my first 2012 Beetle last weekend. Wish I could say new cars didn't tempt me but this one did. I can still remember when I brought my current new "Buggy" home in 2005....I had wanted one for so long, well, since they first came out in 1998! I don't like to think of myself as fickle.....but I will not lie, I wish I would have been on Oprah's favorite things show this year to get one......

I would name it Ruby Sue.......Just FYI

Wishing I could see some brilliant orange and red leaves against the sky today, but I am very grateful that it is cooler here and the season for open windows again. That makes all the difference! Ate outside for the very first time this was a blessed event.

I am looking forward to my Photography seminar tomorrow. It will be very exciting to learn more of what I can actually do with my camera. Thank you Elaine for buying me such a generous gift.....

I will close with the Message version of Romans 12:1,2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.


  1. The photography seminar sounds like great fun.

  2. Your niece is too cute! I also enjoyed the Message version of Romans 12: 1,2. So often we do get caught up in what we would consider as being the mundane things of life without recognizing, that it ALL can be used to bring honor and glory to God.

    Thank-you for such a timely reminder-God Bless You.

  3. Bwha. The doctor is in! So precious -- the preciousness of children --- only God could have created that...

    buy that new Beetle.

    and, I need to take a photography course. I wished I lived out there, then you and I could sit next to each other in class, pass notes, and giggle.


  4. Cute pic. i hope you learned lots at your seminar. And that version of Romans is so good!

  5. My comments are not showing up.

    *stomps foot*

    Wait. Maybe you just haven't approve it yet?

    *holds breath*

  6. I can see why you had that photo up on your computer. It was in my Google Reader just now, and I couldn't help but come over and tell you how precious she is. :)

  7. Thank you all for your wonderful comments! Time is flying by...hopefully I can sit down this AM and do a post! Lori
