Poor Mr. Linky got a bunch of undeserved negative comments yesterday at my Blue Monday post, and he didn't earn any of them. Truthfully, I've never had any problems with him.
My modem began to give me trouble several days ago. It would go in and out--on and off. I had so much stress trying to keep up with my blogging visits and comments. I would be in the middle of a comment, and my internet service would cut off.
I called my internet server on Saturday, and they diagnosed it as a Major Problem outside my home. They got it fixed some time after 2:30 Monday. For most of the weekend and into Monday, I was without computer service. I had NO WAY to put up Mr. Linky until Monday afternoon! I love Mr. Linky, and if I weren't already married ....

With Diane's permission, I'm stretching the idea of trash to treasure as I am neither creative nor crafty, so please bear with me. Some people think that snow is TRASH, while others say that it's a TREASURE. Here's something to help you decide: is it TRASH or TREASURE?
I got this from a friend who wanted to "get you in the mood for winter." I hope it helps you enjoy these winter months.
That it hides the world's scars and gives nature new birth
And they say when a man turns from sin to the Lord
That forgiveness like snow covers him evermore.
And it's told that the angels lift their hearts and rejoice
When one traveler turns homeward from his way to the Lord's
If somewhere someone's turning, he's giving his all
Then God's grace like the snow is beginning to fall.
And somewhere it's snowing, see the soft drifting down
As the snowflakes surrender to the hardening ground
Like the good grace of Jesus, that now covers our sin
In the kingdom of Heaven,
it's snowing again.
