The Birds Are Singing…



And yes…the birds are singing, the sun is shining, I don’t have to wear my sweats today to be warm…truly life is good!!!

I am healing well, and got a full nights sleep last night which has made all the difference in the world!!


I sure do wish I was here…


But that will come in a week or so.  We are all just so excited that the Florida deep freeze has come to an end!!  We LOVE our sweater weather, but this freezing stuff just doesn’t cut it around here!!

Thank you again for the outpouring of prayers, love and concern for me sweet friends.  God is good all the time, and has certainly been good to me.  My Dr. thought it was a gall bladder issue, but last Friday the pain became more localized and I began to run a fever so I went to the ER, and it was indeed my appendix. 

I’d give each of you a gorgeous bouquet of these if I could…


Please don’t forget to ask for the Lord’s mercy on the survivors in Haiti.  Our oldest daughter Sam’s best friend’s parents are missionaries in Port Au Prince, and are ok, but quite shaken as you might imagine.  They continue to have tremors which must be frightful.

Have an absolutely delightful weekend, and remember that the God who holds the universe in place loves you with a perfect love!!!

Bouquets of Love to you!!!


  1. OH! Goody! I get to comment first. I am so happy to hear from you and that you are doing so well. I have been praying for you . And am so glad that the weather is getting warmer,for us too. And that picture of the ocean does look so inviting, and when it gets warmer and you are stronger go and enjoy it for me. with much love ,

  2. Hi Becky, I am so sorry to hear you were sick. You sound like you are feeling much better now and I am happy for you. That cold weather sure was something wasn't it? I still have some snow in my yard. It was big fun for the kids though. Hope you continue quickly on your journey to healing.


  3. What a cute little bird! I had some little birds visit my yard recently and I have never seen them here before. I took some pictures. I will post them soon..Maybe you might know what they are.

    I am praying for everyone in Haiti. It is just heart breaking! I plan to make a donation very soon.

  4. I'm hearing the birds way up here, too, Becky!! Imagine that! We still have alot of snow still on the ground, but temps are now getting above 32 degrees during the days, so we're seeing some melting! Yay!!
    I'm so glad to hear that you are getting some good sleep and praying for your quick and painless healing, sweet girl!

    Take care, Becky!


  5. Hello Becky,

    So good to hear you slept well and feel better. You will be back to perfect in no time!
    Love, Debra

  6. Hi sweetie, So glad you got a good rest and feeling better today-thank You Lord. I love the ocean, can't wait til Hawaii but wish you were with me when we go. Have a blessed day!
    Hugs and smooches.

  7. Nothing like a GOOD night of sleep is there?? YAY...soo glad you are doing better. You will totally be back to your active normal self soon. The pic of the bird is ADORABLE. I can't imagine how it would be to be leaving in Haiti right now. Soo sad. They are all in my prayers for sure. I'm keeping YOU in my prayers. Keep doing well my friend and have a wonderful week-end. Love, Debbie

  8. Glad to hear you're feeling better - I love your encouraging posts. They're certainly a breath of fresh air with all the personal 'drama' that seems to be published.

  9. so glad you're feeling better! i'm glad your florida freeze is over too! i can't believe how cold it's been down there. my parents were freezing when they were there over the weekend!

  10. Hello Becky, I came over to visit the poor patient. It sounds like you are doing well and staying cheerful. Our prayers are answered if all is going as expected. I am thankful as are all of your friends and family. The sunshine is bright so we must be thankful for warmer weather too. I sure am, although we still have snow. Not as much though.

    The earthquake disaster is overwhelming to say the least. My prayers are with the suffering constantly. I am so glad your friends are alright.

    Don't get frisky yet Becky. You still have lots of healing going on.

    Love you and wish you well my sweet friend.
    Love and hugs, Jeanne

  11. Hi Miss Becky,
    So glad you are still feeling so well. I tried to call you today and got the answer phone so hope that means you went out with Sam
    or someone and not that you are not feeling as
    well. Hope you have a great weekend hon,
    Love ya, Nellie

  12. Becky it sounds like you've bounced back really fast from your appendix surgery, and I'm so glad. Enjoy your nice weather. It actually got up to the low 60s today here in NC and it was just wonderful. Our town park was filled with people out walking and hordes of young kids were at the playground. It was so nice to see everybody out and about after our long cold spell.

  13. Dear Becky, I am so glad you are doing better. You have been in my thoughts and prayers! I am also glad that it has warmed up there. I know it is a real hardship on warm climates to get a severe cold snap! Take care dear friend, Hugs, Elena

  14. praying for your friends in haiti! it's all so sad. i'm glad they are alright! praying for you, too, becky! it's one thing after another, maybe you'll ready for the beach soon :)

  15. Appendix????? Who authorized this? Have they been getting you the right flavor jello? Must have been scry not knowing what was wrong, but I am glad all is well now and you are on the road to recovery. I see the sun has come out to lift your spirits! Good thing is that this isn't going to cut into your precious beach time. God must have scheduled this in the winter so you would be all better to head back to the white sand! I've got a mean chicken soup recipe (does that count for surgeries too or just colds?)if you need it! Loving thoughts from Kansas traveling mue (sp?) rapidpido to Florida for your speedy recovery!

  16. HUGS and LOVE coming your way!

  17. Becky I am so glad you are warming up, healing and living up! You are always uplifting to us all. Love you, girlfriend!

    I have finally finished all my posts on the Italy trip but one. I am exhausted but so glad I did it. I will be making it into a blog book for our kids and Jim's mom.

  18. Thinking of you Becky, and so thankful you're doing well. Love ya bunches!

  19. Beautiful post!
    So glad you are on the mend and that your weather is warming up.
    Our weather is better too, in the mid 40's, it feels like Summer!

    My prayers are with the victims in Haiti and those who work to help them in their time of need, and also the many missionaries who devote their lives to God's Work.
    Love to you,

  21. Hi Becky...hope recovery is still going well and you are getting lots of rest and time to do a few things you normally might not have time for. Thanks for the comment on Life By George. Scot got me a coat for Christmas, but I had tried it the Lodge skillet was my surprise. He usually uses lots of duck tape, etc. to wrap my gift, but this year, he used screws to secure my surprise in a homemade wooden box he made. He had wrapped a screwdriver and stapled it to the top of my gift, so I'd have to use the screwdriver to open the wooden box. The funny part is that he didn't know Cale had bought him a cordless drill for the drill was Scot's! But I borrowed it and opened my wooden box! ha.
    He's always mischievous when it comes to gifts! ha.

    You take care....have a terrific Monday.

    Love ya,

  22. Glad you're doing better!!! The picture of the beach looks so pretty! I haven't been to the beach in 2 years and probably won't get there this summer either with hubby gone. Just have no desire to go on a vacation while he's fighting a war!

    Glad your friends in Haiti are doing okay. What an awful thing to happen and how horrible that their government is completely useless in helping their own people!!! Thankful for our beautiful country to always reach out and help those in need!

    Enjoy the sunshine!!

  23. Beautiful Becky........

    Oh my.......I'm so glad you're ok......that must have been a fright.....

    God bless you and I wish you a super speedy recovery.



Thank you so much for taking the time to share some JOY!
You're a blessing to me!
