Grumpy the Gator

In Grumpy the Gator, a group of children playing encounter a grumpy alligator. The story teaches children to always keep a safe distance from animals in the wild, and to find an adult if they see an alligator.

Its Always A Story With The Hendersons

How do you define "sacred"? and "Where are my snow clothes?"

A friend asked me if all my posts were going to be lighthearted and cute. My answer is “I don’t know. I just start thinking and whatever the Lord puts in my mind is what I share on my blog. If it’s a funny story about me and/or my family, then God has reminded me of the blessings of life and love and laughter. There may be times when the blog thoughts are more serious. God constantly reminds me of His everlasting love and mercies and in all situations, I am blessed.”
So here goes…. I am participating in a wonderful online group and we are picking certain words to really think about. This week, the word is “sacred”. Hmm…… How do you define the word “sacred”? I am glad this is the word for the week because it really gives me a chance to think about what is “sacred” to me.
When I think of “sacred”, I think of communion, praying, and holy. My prayer time is “sacred” because it is a holy, set apart time, in which I share my heart and soul with God. He knows my thoughts, yet I still share my feelings with Him.
I do not pick a certain time each day to pray. I pray all throughout the day and even the night, when I wake up for various reasons. 🙂 Praying is very “sacred” to me. My thoughts are shared with God and I know He is listening and hearing. His answers may not be what I want, but, I do know that He knows what is best for me.
Today, think about how you define “sacred”. I would love to know your thoughts. Leave a comment. You may inspire someone today. 🙂
On a lighter note, how much snow did your neighborhood get with this crazy snow event? Alan decided he would do a little shoveling, since obviously we have no teens in the area who want to earn some money. ( As teens, we always went door to door after a snow storm and asked to shovel driveways to earn some money. And, yes, we do have lots of teens. I guess they just aren’t in to shoveling to earn money.) Oh well….
Alan asked where I keep his snow clothes. My response was, “Dear, we got rid of all that stuff when we moved to NC and when we moved back to VA, we didn’t buy any new boots and cold weather stuff.” Oops…… Well, that sweet husband went outside in his sweatpants, flannel shirt, and LLBean mocs and shoveled the driveway. He’s so sweet!
He did come inside every 15 minutes to warm up. 🙂 He’s my hero.
I get such joy with the little things in life. Snowflakes are beautiful. I must admit, I am glad to see all this snow melting now. There are bluebirds, cardinals and wrens at the bird feeder. Ahhhh…… “sacred” moments watching God’s creations.
Have a blessed day,

    Sacred to me also means “to be set apart”. I enjoyed this blog post and can imagine Alan out there shoveling for his sweetie pie 😉 Every time I do the laundry now and pull out my millions of dryer sheets, his video is in my mind and I laugh out loud. So, tell him thanks for bringing JOY to my laundry 🙂

    Sacred just got a new dimension for me – sacred are the moments shared by sisters in the Lord… sacred fellowship…

    I too loved the dryer sheets video, that was hilarious and will never forget it!! I live in southern California so I cannot even imagine all of that snow, so kudos to your husband for going out there and shoveling all of that. Sacred means to me quiet time with God…it is just him and I and very meaningful. Thanks for sharing this great blog post
