GOD IS SO GOOD!!!
#1. Not only sheets! I love the smell of towels when I dry off on those that have just been dried in the drier! Thank you LORD for the privilege to have these blessings.
#2. I can HARDLY wait to see her new car!!!
#3. I praise the LORD that I don't have too much to do with yardwork! Of course my yard doesn't look as gorgous as yours! It is so beautiful. Put some wide angle pictures on your blog for everyone to see!
#4. Praise God for such a gift to you! I have changed my house phone service from AT&T to Bright House. For the first year it is free for calls anywhere in the U.S. The second year I will pay $10.00 a month, the third will be $20 a month. The calls will also come up on my T.V. screen as to who it is from! They are to install it on the 28th. My number will be the same.
#5. Rosie is surely one of a kind. There is no other like her. She is so sweet. So loving. The LORD surely knew what He was doing when he gave us such beautiful animals to love and love us back with no exceptions. Xena has so many habits Reggie had. She loves to be where I am, laying on my feet, ha!
#6. The LORD is so Good in what he does for us all! His timing is perfect!
#7. I had some coffee after I went to the doctor's office and was reminded the appointment had been changed to March! I could have had that cup at your house the day before, ha!
#8. Don't you know! I'm so blessed by your blog. I am so blessed by Bonnie and Janet's blogs as well! You all mean so much to me. The love of the LORD just overflows with the joy of His Holy Spirit.
#9. AMEN! I have become so much more blessed by Him during my devotions that have lasted almost 2 hours before I knew it!
#10. The fabric is the LORD'S gift to you.
#12. I had a great time today with my friend, Sylvia. We met at the Boston Coffeehouse at ten. By the time we updated one another on every subject you could think of (besides our families) we had been there 4 hours!! We don't know where the time went! What a blessing for Christian friends. I thank the LORD for Sylvia.
Our friendship has been for 24 years!
I love you all,
Susie

Bonnie said...

So nice to catch on on Susie's blog today and all her little family of pets. So sweet.

I am still in Utah until Monday night and the heat is killing my enthusiasm but it s fun to be here with the family. It has mostly been a working visit, especially for Jim. Poor guy...no retirement for him!

Hazie is calling me from the kitchen. So happy you had a nice quiet week with thanksgiving on your mind and in your heart. It is the key to feeling happy, isn't it? God is so good to us!

Love you...Bon

I LOVE FRESH SHEETS..I HAVE SEVERE INSOMNIA...I ONLY SLEEP ABOUT EVERY THIRD NIGHT AND HAVE SEVERE SLEEP APNEA....I SLEEP HEAVENLY ON FRESH SHEETS.
HAS YOUR SON HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT HIS JOB...I THINK HE WILL SOON.
YOU AND YOUR WHOLE FAMILY IS IN MY DAILY PRAYERS.
YOU KNOW I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED THE THE PERFUME RED...BUT IT IS QUITE EXPENSIVE AND IT IS OUT OF OUR ABILITY TO BUY. WELL TODAY MY MOTHER CAME OVER AND BROUGHT ME A WHOLE BOTTLE OF RED THAT SHE BOUGHT AT A THRIFT SHOP...I SPRAYED SOME ON AND IT IS SUCH A DELIGHTFUL SMELL AND MADE ME FEEL PRETTY...OH SO PRETTY...SO WITTY AND GAY...
