Have a Reminiscing Sabbath Day


Up on a Mountain on the Appalachian Trail in Maine
*
Sweet Sunday to you!!
*
Hope your weekend has been very pleasant
so far,  and that it will only be more pleasant
this Lord's Day!
*
Jim and I did go and celebrate with breakfast at Cracker
 Barrel..  We love the Mama's pancake breakfast! We
get them to put pecans' in the pancakes,  that really makes
them so good! We always enjoy looking around in the
 Gift shop as well.   Did a little grocery shopping at Publix
 and then came home put away the cold groceries and
 took a lil nap! 
Been a very nice day,  I would say!
*
I got to thinking about reminiscing about the good
things God has done for us,  and how that is such
a great spiritual practice,  and it doesn't just help
us,  it helps those we tell about it as well,  especially
our children and loved ones.  It helps cement in their
hearts and minds the faithfulness and goodness of
the Lord,  so that when they are in a tough or dark
time they will think my Mom or Dad or Gram-ma or
Gram-pa said God was faithful to them when such
and such happened!
*
So do some reminiscing today and share your thoughts
with your spouse,  children,  grandchildren,  friends,
 church family or neighbors!  You will enjoy telling and
remembering it,  the Lord will be honored and  glorified, 
 and someone will learn an important spiritual lesson
 about who God really is!
*
I'll leave you with this verse from
Deuteronomy 4:9 NIV
*
"Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely
so that you do not forget the things your eyes
have seen or let them slip from your heart as
long as you live.  Teach them to your children and
to their children after them."
*
Have a fun day of Remembering God's Goodness!
*
Love,  Hugs,  and Blessings,
Nellie

I couldn't believe it when I read that you and Jim like the Mama's pancake breakfast at Cracker Barrel. We don't have CB in CA but we drove across the country years back and we ate that practically every time we went there. How funny! Too much food but very good.

Sunday was so awesome for us too. I am back from my little break. I knew it wouldn't last long but I had to give it a try and get some things done.

I hope your Monday was wonderful!

Hugs, B
