Happy Birthday Wishes Mr. Jim
this morning at the dawn of a new year for mr. jim, our beloved friend from texas, bernie and i captured a beautiful sunrise.
now i must admit that i, myself have observed very few sunrises and i have had to beg saija than once to send me one from my beloved manitoba, but this morning i did catch one!
and so the first thing i thought of was mr. jim and the first thing we wanted to do was to wish him a happy birthday
i think he is either 109 or 110...the last several months he has not displayed his age on his blog like he used to do!
for sure and he has got pretty closed mouth about the whole thing!

now adi, mr. jim's granddaughter was not very pleased when i told her that i needed help and so she had better get the first available plane and fly over to assist not very pleased at all!

she showed me the card that mr. jim's family was featured on and i must say that mr. jim has one pretty wife, one adoring sister and a lovely daughter, a handsome son in law and two of the sweetest grandchildren!
adi surely agrees!

"now", adi complained, "you didn't even give me a chance to put my picture on this birthday card and my grampa jim is going to have a nose way out of joint and hurt feelings!"

"oh that's ok adi". i haven't got the time to put my name on this card either!"
but rest assured mr, jim, my friend and your grampa knows that we love him!
after all isn't he the greatest sunday school teacher and godly christian that you ever knew?"

now amber is quite disappointed that i never sent adi back with any cake.
hopefully mrs. jim will make her one and shares some with her!

poor katrin is in the same sad boat, but really since bernie has retired, cakes are few and far between on my blogs!

thank you so much for your help adi and don't worry, i am closing this post with the bestest wishes for your grampa jim and my friend, mr. jim and i am signing it, from you and me!!! terry and adi.

and because it is now the lords day here in canada and texas, i will put in a lovely hymn that my friend sandy and tammi reminded me of this morning.

have a glorious lords day mr. jim and everyone!

Thank you soooooo very much, Terry.
Of course I don't deserve all the long hard work you did and have said
but I LOVE IT!

That is a very pretty song on YouTube that Sandy and Tammi reminded you of. It is one of my favorites and is based on Psalm 42.
Psalm 42, verse 1 goes:
"As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, O God.

Thank you again, Terry. God blesses you very much with your writing and technical talent. May He continue to bless you.
BTW, Adi had an arthritic hip and she wouldn't walk on one leg. But she is a lot better now. Just in time for her to come help you. :)

The night is dark
and the goblins are out,
and the witches and black cats
are prowling about.

And costumed creatures
the strangest I've seen,
are knocking on doors
'cause tonight's Halloween!

Happy Halloween dear Terry:-)

A Happy Birthday to Jim as well, he sounds like a wonderful person with a loving family:-) You are such a good friend and no doubt Jim was thrilled with your birthday tribute to him!! xoxo

Great post for Mr. Jim.
Hope he isn't celebrating too long.
I saw his report from the breakfast table. Impressing.
I'd like to learn how the happy family are dealing with the calories. Their all looking so slim and fit.

Hope Bernie is getting better by now. The cold season started early this fall. My brother has already had a long lasting pneumonia.
Gunnar and I had flue shots taken last Thursday.
My new machine hasn't yet got a spelling control. I should stop writing, before things are getting too wild.
My best to you, Bernie, Mom and Dad Golden.
I think writing about your ruby cat love is appropriate any time.
Love Felisol

Terry, I dropped back to say thank you to all the fine friends of yours and mine for their nice BDay wishes.

Blogger has stopped putting ages on the profile page. The last time I looked it was 109 so I assume that it now would be 110. Sure, don't you think that people like me are part of the reason they took it off!

And thank you again for this lovely post. I enjoyed it. :)

Tammi said...

Just stopped by to say Hi. :) And oh this song is just a favorite! Thanks for sharing! I'm so glad the Lord let our paths cross! Looking forward to keeping in touch!
