I must have cows on the brain, because I'm posting about them again!

I've been buried in my office for 2 days now trying to sort, toss, reconfigure heavy objects to get some room because I need the breathing space and elbow room for when I do my .....pregnant pause......deep breath.......exhale........taxes.

('Ghaaaa', hands around my own neck, squeezing)
But one happy result (after I turn loose of my neck) is I find stuff!!!!! Its like a trip to the 'thrift' without spending the gas. What I found that brings me to talk cow is... my other roll of cow wallpaper border!

I started with 2 rolls months ago when this project was concieved after a coup at Goowill when I realized there were TWO rolls of cow border, and that could make an actual room makeover instead of a craft project! But (of course) when it came time to use them, I found myself scratching my head and looking somewhat befuddled holding one roll.

Ok, doing my taxes is just the excuse, I HAD to find that roll.

I just finished papering my dining room in neato stripes and the cows will finish off the space to perfection. Of course, pictures to follow when I'm done, but for now here's a quick scan of my cows!

Here's the question of the day:

“Who was the first guy that looked at a cow and said," I think that I'll drink whatever comes out of those things when I squeeze them?”
Calvin & Hobbes

And, yet another pondering,

“The cow is of the bovine ilk; One end is moo, the other, milk”
Ogden Nash

And some honesty-

"I'm a cowboy who never saw a cow."
Johnny Mercer

In 1961, he wrote the lyrics to "Moon River" for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Some facts about Audry Hepburn who was ranked as the third greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute: Born in Brussels(May 1929 – January 1993) studied ballet, studied drama and worked as a model, she had a strong film career 1954 to 1964, Hepburn was married twice, and had a son with each of her husbands. Soon after Hepburn's final film role, she was appointed a goodwill ambassador to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). Grateful for her own good fortune after enduring the German occupation as a child, she dedicated the remainder of her life to helping impoverished children in the poorest nations. There is an unbelievable documentary on her entire life at Wikipedia. She led an amazing life that was so much larger than her stunning film career and entirely unknown to me. Take a look!

“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”
Audrey Hepburn

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”
Audrey Hepburn

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
Audrey Hepburn

A quick funny to share

I found this on a site I visit often:
I trust you will get a giggle. (Me)

My husband got up and had the most interesting but funny dream. He was running and running fast. What was he running from? He felt something bite his butt causing him to run even faster. He was not sure if he was in the forest or the desert because it was night. The faster he ran the harder it would bite his butt. Another nip seconds later he tried to turn around and get a good look at what the h_ll was biting his butt. It was kind of blurry, he could not make out what it was. Suddenly on the corner of his eye, a glimpse and he seen it, it was a big cow! Yes a cow and it bit him again.

The funny thing is that God really has an interpretation for this dream, and it was cool how he revealed it to us. Did he reveal it to you? Could this be you running? God is a humorous God.

A cow biting your backside? Could that have been you running? Well in prayer we asked the Lord what does that mean. My husband running, cow chasing him, and chomp! A bite on his butt. The bible says only God can interpret dreams and this is what he revealed to us.

The Cow means a lot of things in the bible and frankly to us it meant Meat-to eat. Yes, that yummy juicy steak, “oh so good right?” It does say in the bible that the cow was used for food and so on. However looking at the word “Running away”- meant to runaway but “in the night” meant hiding, not seen, hide in the dark, sin.

Imagining a jaw clinching chomp on your romp. Well it was not how it happened my hubby said, it was more like a nip. A nip like in trying to get someone’s attention. Running-simply means he ran from the spiritual call that he has on his life.

Taking a closer look at the cow, this meant meat-”the word of God” Explained in the bible Jesus’ teaches and preaches for the beginner and the matured. To be understood for the new baby Christian-who drinks milk it is easy digestion, easy learning and comprehending. For the mature Christian a much more heavier substance would be full and satisfying, challenging them to pursuit for more of God. In this case my hubby was not a milk drinker he was a meat eater. Gods love was searching him and chasing him down, getting his attention, by nipping at his backside. God is continually trying to communicate to us. Let him communicate to you today. I will leave you with this scripture from Jonah in the bible. CHEW on this for awhile it is an amazing passage about Jonah running from God.
Start with this Jonah1:1 The Lord gave this message to Jonah son of Amittai: Jonah 1:2 “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh! Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are.” Jonah 1:3 But Jonah got up and went in the opposite direction in order to get away from the Lord. He went down to the seacoast, to the port of Joppa, where he found a ship leaving for Tarshish. He bought a ticket and went on board, hoping that by going away to the west he could escape from the Lord. Jonah 1:4 But as the ship was sailing along, suddenly the Lord flung a powerful wind over the sea, causing a violent storm that threatened to send them to the bottom. So with all that being said, Is God calling or chasing you down today? we cannot run from his love.
Please, be blessed. Take a visit, (xoxo Me)
