Today being ground hog day, it has again been very warm but terrible windy. Some western counties have had tornado warnings. A heavy rain is suppose to appear this evening from 6 till midnight.
The Kitty Justice is that if you do not like Tennessee weather stick around and it will change in a few days.
BTW The rest of the week we are suppose to have normal weather for February.

Right about the time I turned 99 upside down, we started to have some single digit mornings. Then today we awoke at 23 degrees and it was sleeting. We are too far south to get the snow but not far enough that we did not get ice. Prince finally got to leave for work about 8:45. He put the bird seed out for me this morning because the porch was frozen over.
Yesterday as I reading my Devotional Bible for Women, I came across a piece called "For Showing Me Purpose by Marjorie Holmes. I have never asked to be shown purpose. Why? Because in Horseshoe Bend at a little white church, Green Valley Baptist, on a warm night at a revival on the moaner bench (a bench at the front of the Church where people would sit and pray to be saved) I was lifted up by invisible hands and my tears wiped away as I became a child of God. (I know there are those who do not believe this way but in a small community in the late fifties this was how one became one with God) Since that night, I have known a calming peace in my soul.
Within a week, as the sun warmed my face, I waded out into the very cool waters of the Caney Fork river where Brother Gibbs stood. He put his handkerchief over my nose and mouth and leaned me backwards into the running water and I was Baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Many people are baptized as babies and then study God's word and are Confirmed into the Church but all the Churches in our county during that period of time you had to be saved before a baptism was held.
As I was reading the above listed article the thoughts of a purpose did not exist. I started paraphrasing her statements as follows:
Life is like a Mirage that vanishes during the cruel business of everyday life.
No matter our circumstances or our talents, WE are meant to be Whoever we are at this moment in time.
Looking back, we see the stepping stones we have traveled, which represents our failures and successes, our tears and fears, our pain and our happiness.
These stones of our Emotional self make us the Person who stands alone. Except we are never alone because God stands beside us. He does not expect a perfect person but a strong person who has Faith in him.
The Kitty Justice is if you look closely you can see the small kitten of a girl long ago.

We play a dirty Santa game and each artist brings a wrapped piece of her artwork for the game. A painting can be stolen three times but the third time it cannot be stolen again as it is retired. We draw numbers and I always hold my breath hoping to get a high number. Poor Shannon got a real dose of the game as her number was one. She had already unwrapped a few pieces of artwork when she had hers stolen and she could either steal or unwrap another present.
With my quirky sense of humor I put a package in a package in a package in a sack. She got to keep my painting "Golden Hours"
The Kitty Justice is that we all had a grand time.

Now here comes Santa Claus as Thanksgiving is now just a wonderful memory to put in the book of 2015. My camera battery died after these photos and I was too busy to grab other devices therefore no photos of the family this year.
The Kitty Justice is that other family members have camera but were too busy enjoying the day to snap any photos.
The score is still concrete porch One and Kitty Zero.

My niece has to work today therefore we are having Thanksgiving dinner a couple of hours early so she does not have to rush to get to work.
I have the Turkey breast in the oven, the dressing and sweet potatoes will come out of the frig next to warm up a little before popping in the oven. I made a Banana Pudding yesterday and Puppy made Homemade Cookies and Cream ( we ate a little last night and it is a winner) Later this morning I will cook the green beans, gravy, rice and rolls. Pull the cranberry sauce out and slice the butter to put on the table.
My BIL is smoking a pork loin and a venison tenderloin for us to eat later if we are hungry.
The Kitty Justice is that You and Yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and BE SURE TO GIVE THANKS.
