Welcome to Pansy's Clippings

Welcome to this blog we've created specifically for sharing Pansy's Clippings.

Pansy is my 89 year old mother-in-law and currently lives with my husband and I in Lakeside, CA.

For 62 years she was a devoted wife to Harry (who passed away in 2007). She gave birth to 4 children. Three girls and then, as she puts it, God blessed them with a boy. She is a tender, loving Grandmother to 2 grandsons and 3 granddaughters and a Great-Grandmother to 2 boys.

However more importantly...she is a follower of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Pansy is a true 'Prayer Warrior' and will stop and pray at anytime and anyplace when she feels the need to do so. No one ever leaves her presence without a "God Bless You Today"!

For years and years (much longer than the 28 years that my husband and I have been married) Pansy has collected and clipped thousands of items. From news articles, card sentiments, and Sunday School papers, you name it...she's clipped it and saved it. She always felt that anything that she clipped and saved was something that was important enough to be shared with others.

A lot of times you'll find her at the copy machine making numerous copies of a clipping so that she can mail it her family and/or friends. Other times you can catch her pasting clippings that had a special reference to marriage into a spiral notebook and giving it to a new bride-to-be.

Anyway, age had caught up with Pansy and dementia has slowly robbed her of much of her short term memory. While my husband and I were cleaning her room and preparing for the next step in her care we came across many of her special clippings and instead of throwing them away we wanted to fulfill Pansy's wish and share them with others.

Some clippings may or may not have any meaning to you what-so-ever, however I can assure you that there will be other clippings that will speak directly to you heart and soul. Some will be lighthearted and some will be serious but I'm sure you will enjoy them all.

Thank you for joining us on this journey. 

We look forward to sharing 'Pansy's Clippings'!

God Bless You Today!!
