debs42_ud Driving along the freeway we found the Tree of Life replaced by The Gnome! Can you guess what's at his feet? 2w
  •   debs42_ud @randomguy_mm He ain't got no nome Matthew. Unless you're volunteering him your room. .?? 2w
  •   debs42_ud @libby_k1 He's part off a long term art project. Every few years the sculptures are replaced with something new. He's actually at the Cranbourne exit, not on the freeway so he won't cause pile ups. Which is probably a good thing. Now you can take photos while sitting at the lights. Have a wonderful day Libby! 2w
  •   debs42_ud @twogrnthmbs Yes that's what that little dot at his feet is. 4 normal size gnomes. He was quite funny to see. 2w
  •   shezasphotos Loved catching up a little - how adorable this is -! Have a great week 2w

  •   honokaaburns_ud Hi Debbie, I got a informative letter from your Mum last week.. Sad to hear that she has been under the weather as I have been.. But we will pick up our boot ties and get going again!!! Ha.. Some days I can't even lift my camera, but I'm sure I'll get my energy back soon!!

  •   debs42_ud @s_and_kvande For us it's the middle of winter. But to get to the snow I have to travel to the mountains. Hope you're enjoying your summer. Can't wait for it to arrive here. 2w
  •   s_and_kvande To a degree we are looking forward to Autumn as our temps plus high humidity make some days feel like 35 to 40°C or more. 😟 2w
  •   debs42_ud @s_and_kvande YesI can imagine. It sounds rather unbearable. Autumn has lovely sunny days and cool nights. Just perfect! 2w

debs42_ud With just a few words my life was turned upside-down and inside-out. It's been 4 weeks since that day. Time for a new book, a new chapter in my life..... Says Jehovah: "Do not be afraid, for I am with you.
Do not be anxious, for I am your God.
I will fortify you, yes, I will help you,
I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness."
(Isaiah 41:10)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Apologies to all for neglecting to reply to your wonderful comments and visiting your fabulous galleries! Hope to get there real soon!!

  •   k_arons4pharmo There's No love like Jehovah,s! You are in my prayers! Dear Sister!@debs42_ud 4mon
  •   heather_ladyh @debs42_ud it seems you e had rough time of late. Im not reading your comments it would be too intrusive. Just wanted you to know I will join you as a sister across 12000and pray for you and your family x 3mon
  •   debs42_ud @heather_ladyh Oh dear Heather! Thank you so much. I'm usually rather private and rarely share such things. But it is what it is. That happened and although terribly sad at the time I believe strongly in being positive and making the most of my new circumstances. Feel free to read them. I was ready to say it out loud. I have a strong faith and great relationship with Jehovah and wonderful support of dear loving friends. Thank you for your prayers. It means a lot x 3mon
  •   rosedw50 What is it about the 25th year?!? 4 days before my 25th the same thing. Jehovah truly showed how he supports his loyal ones. Comfort in knowing we are NOT alone. Hugs my dear sister. Makes me well-up when I recount the times HE carried me. Sunrises at the beach are a very special time for me. Just me and Jehovah 2mon
  •   debs42_ud @rosedw50 Oh Darlene I'm so sorry for you. Jehovah has been a tower of strength and support. It's not been an easy journey. I ended up keeping a journal for a while just so I can keep track of daily blessings and support he sent our way. And just like you beaches and sunsets are special. A place to talk to Jehovah without distraction. How are you going now? Has much time passed? Hugs xx 2mon
  •   rosedw50 My journal helped me organize my thoughts and prayers Yes it's been a 5 years, first year was the hardest. Everything felt like a mountain, even taking care of the parking at a convention cause much anxiety. Sounds silly 😕 Now there are new challenges and moments of emotion weakness(self pity), but they are brief. At those weak moments Jehovah gets me busy. "More happiness in giving than receiving " On the positive side I can give as much as I want, without worrying about being home to cook. Most of the holes in my heart are filled with gems. How old is your daughter? Mine were 19,21,23 when it happened. It was not easy for them even though they were older. Devastating effects on the one that was 21. She is still recovering, but much better. Xo 2mon
  •   debs42_ud @rosedw50 It's a roller coaster ride that's for sure. And all these challenges to overcome. Keeping busy and giving are a great help. My daughter is 17. Still at school and keeping busy. She has wonderful friends in the cong that are very supportive. 2mon
  •   debs42_ud @rosedw50 And you know Darlene, nothing about is silly. You've lived all those years sharing responsibility with someone else. It was support. And now suddenly everything is on your shoulders. No more sharing it. That can make the simplest things look like mountains. I get how you feel. But what great things you've accomplished on the way. They must make you smile. I've just conquered the 4 month mark. Starting a certificate in Aged Care tomorrow so I can find work. What a crazy ride! Besides we have the best support ever in our Father. Take care sis and keep smiling xx 2mon

debs42_ud SS Speke near Kitty Miller Bay

This ship was wrecked 22 Feb 1906 at Phillip Island on its way to Geelong. The accident was attributed to faulty navigation by the captain who had confused a bushfire for a navigation light!
How embarrassing!!

debs42_ud ~Toby ~ My beautiful old boy is now 13. He's has moments where he acts like a puppy but most days he just walks around slowly like an old man. His hips are getting weak and his hearing is going. We don't walk as far as we used to. But he's still great company. I'm happy to just sit on the lawn with him. 7mon
  •   mimiwings Looks like we are living parallel livesyou know I had to put my precious Teddy down last October too. Cancer...and right in the middle of all the madness. I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing our fur babies is so devastating. When it rains it pours sometimes. Maybe they are running and playing together in doggie heaven 4mon
