This is my lucky day! [07-07-07] And time! [07:07 AM]

Why do you say I'm lucky?

1. Lucky in love. In fact Mrs. Jim and I could have renewed our wedding vows this morning. At 07:07:07 AM.


This wasn't a picture from today's honeymoon, it was last year's trip to Italy. We are boating just off the coast of the Island of Capri. We do this honeymoon stuff often, remember this year's started in Ireland.

Some might say there isn't any need for a renewal of wedding vows unless there are problems. I compare doing this to maintaining a car. When it gets to be 35 years old a little TLC is in order.

My friend says our preacher should hold a wedding renewal ceremony tonight. It can never hurt, and besides today just might be your luckiest day in the world.

2. Adi, our pet, is a lucky dog. She is a really nice full blooded tri-colored Beagle. You might can tell, I just woke her up from her nap for the photo op. She didn't exactly say Whoopie!


It's not her blood that makes her nice though, it's her training and upbringing. She loves to obey so well that she's never even needed a newspaper spanking! [Just like we treat our kids, everyone gets ice cream rewards!]


3. Even our car is lucky! Lucky to be alive!
4. And I myself am lucky, lucky to be alive. [Go--click--here to read about my nine lives, I've lived at least seven of them.]


5. I'm lucky to be teaching Sunday school tomorrow. My leg could have been in a cast or an immobilizer for a long while. Guess I'd better stop here and get back to studying and preparing the lesson.


Our lesson is on Haggai, and his book of the Bible. Haggai was an encourager and one of the Old Testament prophets. Our study theme will be commitment (link), the Israelites needed more commitment towards rebuilding their temple for worshiping God in.

Do you think these words put them all on a guilt trip?

"9. You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?" declares the LORD Almighty. "Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with his own house. 10. Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and the earth its crops. 11. I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the oil and whatever the ground produces, on men and cattle, and on the labor of your hands." Haggai 1:9-11 (New International Version)(link)

Note: If you got all the way down here, you might have guessed. I'm doing a John McCain type interview of myself. I ask the question and I give the answers.

I believe I should do it some more, what do you think?

Hi Jim! You are early with your post! That's okay. I haven't been on here all day. I have been too busy.

I saw in the paper several folks that were planning to get married on 7-7-07 at 7 p.m. In fact a neighbor of mine and his girlfriend are gone to TN to get married on 7-7 but not at 7 p.m.

Great picture of you and Mrs. Jim on the boat!! It's neat that you believe in staying close. Some men just aren't romantic and thoughtful that way, so good for you!

Loved your previous post! The golf cart is so pretty and so are the 3 occupants!!!
Dear Jim and Mrs. Jim...Just thinking of you now and praying for the sad task of sayig good bye to a good friend.
Were they saved Jim?
I have asked the Pilgrim pals to pray for you and Mrs. Jim.

Sara wants you to send Adi over to her but I have to tell you that I am first in line....From Terry
Hey Jim,

That's very sweet of you and Mrs Jim to do a sweet thing on 7-7-07 at 07:07:07. I'm sure it will be a lasting memory for you both. And many more wedding anniversaries coming for you both.

Thanks for dropping by and the comment in my blog. It's very nice of you to do so.
Congratulations! 35 years, how awesome. I love the post!
Fear Jim and Mrs.
Congratulations with your big day.
You look so happy in that boat to Capri.
We were meant to go to Capri and Ischia last year, but ended up in Florence and Toscany.
I think I'll never get tired of travelling in Italy. It's so variable and full of ancient history.
The same can be said about Ireland.
Most of all I praise you for being a Sunday school teacher. Raising children for Christ is about the most important task one can take on.
God bless you now and in the future.
great pic.

congrat on your day! :)

heres to many more for you both!

Hi Jim ~~Good post and photos.
Thanks for your comments. Most of the fibreglass cows in Shepparton are in parks and dotted here and there. Only a couple of the shops wheel them indoors for protection.
Take care, Regards, Merle.
