Happy Thanksgiving!


I have titled what I have written below, a little mixed media of TIME!  

Time is always getting away from me! I think that a real of sign of growing older! But even the young are saying the same thing lately! And I wonder if it's not that we have so much going on in this day and time we live in! To me time is speeding up. with all this modern times we are in. Like the internet with emails that are just instant, cellphones that text so fast and now mine is now with face time! My great-grandson and I can talk and see each other at the same time. But I said all of this to say I am happy and blessed to live in a time that GOD has allow for such as this! I am thankful to know I that I have lived to see some changes that still do surprise me! I was born before TV and believe me it was sure slower pace in those days! I remember sitting around the radio and enjoying programs that would make you imagine you were right there as the sounds of how they made it with all the scripts and the acting voices was very good too!

I was born a late change of life child to my parents.  My dad was born in 1897 and my mother was born in 1898 and I still remember them telling me when there was not any cars and planes. Horses and trains were the only way of traveling. But you could walk!!! Ha ha, this way of life is about forgotten, unless you have too! It's too scary now too walk and believe me if you see someone walking you wonder are they up to good or bad. That's where the news brings up all these bad things happening! Makes you feel like you got to stay in a locked home or keep your car doors always locked! Again, I remember and thankful that when I was young you did not have lock anything up. What has happen? Is it because we going way to fast to notice that someone is not taught right or wrong! I know there has always been the bad that evil has always been around. Now with all this kind of bad stuff happening is because we hear it so fast? I do asked these questions. Why is this? No one knows their neighbors anymore. LOOK at the or READ the news if don't believe me on that one!

I am so thankful to JESUS, for being born into a church going family. My family attended church 3 times a week. Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and then we went back on Wednesday night too. We never miss church during Revivals either. And attended the other churches Revivals too. That's when Tent Revivals were very much a summertime way along with family picnics. This was when there was NO Air Conditioning either!  This did not keep us away from church either! They had those fans that were in the song book area or laying on the benches. My mother always carried a fan in her purse. It was the fold up kind. OH my, I remember when they sold these at the local stores and most everyone carried fans! OK, maybe we just got spoiled to AC! Ha ha, I am sure, I am! I cannot believe we drove cars without AC. But all we had back then was to cool off was to roll down the windows. Those side vents on the front windows were a lifesaver for our hairdos. I am so thankful I can remember all this too. Sometimes, I long for those days again of slower pace. Again and again I wonder is all getting better or getting worst for our young folks. I guess we have to wait and see on that one! Thankful for knowing I have a GOD who is good all the time!

I am so thankful I have lived to see now my grandchildren having children. I now have 5 great-grandchildren and have three granddaughters expecting this next spring. What a blessing to witness this! I hope and pray that I will be given good health to enjoy what is to come and Lord willing, I could witness great-great-grandchildren. OH my, the stories to tell of days of old. Like my Dad and Mother told me of changes of time!

I have been trying to make a art Journal here is a few pictures of a few pages I have done.

 I'm still working on this Art Journal with
   more to come! I have two more pages 
  laid out on my worktable. I hope you
   have the a wonderful Thanksgiving!  
Be bless and stay safe in JESUS!

Oh my, I know just what you mean! Time is flying by and I'm having a hard time slowing it down to enjoy it. I did enjoy your post though, wonderfully written! And your art journal is looking awesome so far! That is a great idea and I love how you've put it together.

Long time since I've been out in blogland, hope to stay in touch better. Have a delightful week~
