Scripture Sunday - Discipline, love it or hate it?







 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
 but whoever hates correction is stupid.

Thankful Thursday - September 21, 2017. Fall decor from the past....


 How priceless is your unfailing love,
 O God!  People take refuge in the
 shadow of your wings.
Psalm 6:7 NIV



Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you ready to greet 
Fall........as tomorrow is the big day.

  I am so ready for some cooler 
weather but that won't be happening 
here in Florida for at least another 
month probably.  I have been busy
this week getting ready for Fall,
and having a lot of fun doing it.
Will show you next week.

Thought I would show you some
pics from Fall's past today....

So on with my post.......


I am thankful...



#1
that we were back at our church
after 3 weeks of being away, 2 wks.
at my daughters and 1 week due to 
the hurricane.....so it was great to
 be back at our home church of
36 years......


#2
that our furry grandaughter dog 
Rosie is off all her meds now, and
is doing just fine. We are all very
happy about that.........







#3 and 4
so thankful... that Jose has passed
 us by and Dee and Jerry as well, and
also thankful that it looks like Marie
 is gonna take a similar path only
 further out in the ocean, which is
great for us, but feeling horrible
for all those in the islands that got
hit again......so many places and
things to pray for these days!!





#5
for the fun of Fall decorating and
having a house to decorate after
last week.  Have really been
enjoying it as I haven't done much
decorating since Spring.......
and it is sort of therapeutic after
seeing all the pictures of mass
destruction on TV.....and a
neighborhood full of debri left
over from Irma.





#6
for My paternal grandmother,
 Nellie whose birthday would 
be tomorrow the 22nd, I have
very fond memories of her,
as she was always so good to
 me.....she has been in Heaven 
with Jesus for about 28 yrs.now.


#7
for one of my dearest friends,
Vicki, whose birthday is the
22nd of Sept., as well...
She is truly like a sister and 
just one of the best friends I
have ever had for almost 35
years now.......Just wish we
lived closer...
Happy Birthday Vicki,
Love You Gal.....






#8
for a new cookie find at our
local Publix market.  They are
cream cheese pumpkin cookies
and they are yummy and are really
great with a cuppa Joe........
Unfortunately the Meyer lemon
ones I mentioned last week are 
out of season until next
 summer.....boo hoo!  lol


#9
that I am about finished with my
 Fall decorating, so will be hopefully
packing up the spring/summer stuff
 and packing away the Fall containers
Now just time to enjoy it...
  whoo hoo!







#10
for a really good movie we watched
 that is based on a true story.  It is 
called "The case for Christ" and we 
rented it off of Amazon in case you
 are interested in watching it.


#11
to hear everyone in our area has
their power back, it took a week
or more for some of them, and
thankful for the men who do all
that hard work to get it back on.
Our next door neighbor is one
of them.
God Bless them all!






#12
for all the rescue teams, those in the 
military, christian ministries and 
fema and anybody that is actively 
involved in helping those in the
 worst hit areas.  I read where 80%
 of the relief aid is coming from
 Christian ministries, I think that
is so Wonderful!!

If you are wondering where to
give.....Samaritans purse is a
really great place to give........


Thanks for joining me for another
week at Cozy Place......


Always glad to have you come
visit.............

Love, Hugs and
and end of Summer 
Blessings,

Nellie

Scripture Sunday - Relationship with God





Happy Sunday Morning 
Sweet Friends,

After going through Hurricane Irma
 at the risk of life and limb to myself
and my family, and to so many others 
here in Floridait really made me think
 about how very blessed we are to know
 Jesus, and to know our eternal destination
 will be heaven.  I also know there are 
many who don't have that assurance and
don't know Jesus, but would maybe like
 to know Him. So the thought of how
many people could have died here in 
Florida and also knowing the hardship
 many people are facing gave me a very
 strong desire to share some scriptures 
that would be helpful to anyone who is
desirous of a relatonship with Jesus.

It is a group of Bible verses that 
will help you understand how to
 start a personal relationship 
with Jesus Christ!


For all have sinned and fall short
 of the Glory of God.
Romans 3:23

We have all done things that are 
wrong, like lying, stealing, cheating, 
cursing, gossiping, hatred, discord 
and the list could go on and on, 
but most importantly God calls 
these wrong things SIN.  

So we have to be willing to admit 

that we are a sinner. We aren't
sinners because we sin,  we were
born with a sin nature......


The Wages of Sin is death...
Romans 6:23A

We will all die physically one day,
but there is also a spiritual death
which alienates us from God for
eternity, and the bible talks about
a place where lost people will be
in torment forever, unless they
accept the truth of what scripture
teaches about Jesus.

Understand that according to a Holy
God we all deserve death for our sin.


 For God so loved the world that 
he gave his one and only Son,
 that whoever believes in him shall
 not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 




But the gift of God is eternal life
thru Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 6:23b

This eternal life is a free gift from 
God to you and to me, it is called 
Salvation. You can not earn this gift,
 because it is not based on anything
 that we can do, but is based on what
Jesus has already done, but we must
make the choice to believe and
recieve God's free gift.

Ask God to forgive you for all the

wrong/sinful things you have done
in your lifetime and then ask God
to make you His child, so that
you can know Him personally.


God demonstrates His own love
for us, in the while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

Jesus died on the cross for us to
pay sin's penalty for all of humanity
and that includes me and you. He
bought us out of slavery to sin and
death!  The only condition is that 
we believe in Him, and what He
has done for us, understanding that
we are now joined with Him and that
He is our life.  He did all of this
because He loves us so much. His
love is what saves us, not religion
or church membership or our own
goodness........cause we can never
be good enough on our own....


Whoever will call on the name of the
Lord, will be saved.
Romans 10:13

Call out to God in the name of 
Jesus!

If you confess with your mouth Jesus
as Lord, and believe in your heart
that God raised Jesus from the dead,
you shall be saved; for with the heart
man believes, resulting in righteous-
ness, and with the mouth he confesses,
resulting in salvation.
Romans 10:9-10


If you believe that God is knocking
on the door o your heart as Him
to come into your heart.


Behold I stand at the door and knock,
if anyone hears My voice and opens
the door, I will come in to him.
Revelation 3:20A


Is Jesus knocking on your hearts
door???  If so, hope you will take
the steps you read here, as it is
probably the most important step
you will ever take, and it will be
the best thing you have ever done
for your life.  Walking with God
is not always easy, but it is a very
blessed life....as I have known the
Lord since I was a teenager and
have been walking with him for
over 50 years, and would not
change a thing...........

Love and Blessings Galore,

Nellie
