Stained Glass Hearts by Patsy Clairmont

        Patsy tries to enable us to see life from a broken perspective. She tells of her problems with agoraphobia and addiction to prescription drugs which had her homebound and almost bedbound. She developed an ongoing relationship with God that has allowed her to combat her fears as well as getting off the drugs and she now is a well known author as well as a speaker for Women of Faith conventions traveling all over.
       She uses stained glass to  help us understand that God can take a broken heart and put the pieces back together making something beautiful if we will allow Him to.
       At end of each chapter she gives examples of art galleries, museums, Scriptures, books, music etc that can help us with our brokenness.
      It was a good book. I was sent this book by Book Sneeze to review it. These are my own opinions.

aging is rough

    I am finding that growing older is not a picnic. I haven't felt well the past few days and not accomplished much. Not that I ever accomplish much as there are many things I want to do but my body says I can't.
   One of the hard parts is having to ask for help in doing things  I'm used to doing myself.Our children help a lot and never complain to us yet it bothers us that they work all week and spend their days off mowing our yard when we know they have work of their own to do.
   One son has spend two days this week helping on our car. We appreciate it so very much but it is really hard to ask for the help.
    With all the rough parts of growing older I still prefer it to the alternative.
     If your parents are still alive call them or go visit and give them a hug and let them know you appreciate them.

Poor Mans Peach Pie

     My husband is  the cook in my family.He is very good at it. We live on a limited budget and do things different from others.
      Last week I had a hankering for peach pie. We had froze  a few two years ago but had already enjoyed most of them. Hubby looked in freezer and found one bag of peaches and  a bag of peelings I  had asked  my daughter-in -law to save of the peaches they bought because I  remember mom making fried peach peeling pies when I was a kid.
     My hubby thawed both and made a delicious peach /peeling cobbler. Makes me wish we had more in the freezer.
