Cacti, cactuses, cactus

Cacti is the Latin plural of cactus, and some writers use it in English. Cactuses is the English plural. Dictionaries list both, and neither is right or wrong. Also, like many names of plants, the uninflected cactus is sometimes treated as plural.

fun making these – I wonder if they will be liked by customers at craft sales – time will tell.

getting rid of stuff

I misplaced my keys more than a week ago; I am not finding them – it’s strange – hopefully they will show up somewhere or other. In the meantime, I am in getting-rid-of-stuff mode. I bought this cute wreath (on the left) 90% off at a thrift store and thought I’d replicate it, but they are both going to the thrift store.

understanding the 2nd great awakening

I read this morning in Dale Gentry’s Breakout Prayer Network this prayer: (I was interested in learning more about the 2nd awakening and found the video posted below the prayer – how the law enforcement was laid off in Buffalo, NY because of no need of them – amazing!)

Dear Father God………….we pray for the city of Chicago and other major cities in America who are experiencing murders and violence…………the Windy City experiencing 39 people shot and 10 dead just over this past holiday weekend…………….we pray for revival on the streets of this nation…………knowing only you Almighty God can make America great again………..may we rehearse happenings during the 2nd Spiritual Awakening when the city of Rochester had to lay off all of its police officers because there was no need for law enforcement…………..believing today that history will repeat itself as we experience an answer to the many prayers we have prayed concerning revival in America, another spiritual awakening…………as the inauguration of our 45th president nears……….. amidst reports of protests and violence in our nations capitol………….we pray your hedge of protection around those attending while thousands of bikers make there way to DC……..declaring they will form a wall of meat around those who are coming to enjoy the festivities………we pray for Donald Trump as he prepares his Inauguration Day speech……………we pray for wisdom and guidance concerning his words…………..we ask these things in Jesus name……….amen.
