Hello There Sweet Friends,
I have been busy getting things ready for our
Friday night Social. We are really looking forward
to it. Don't know how many are coming yet unless
hubby is able to find out at his meeting tonight, so
guess it will be a fun surprise.
Everyone is bringing
their favorite dessert or snacky food, so I don't have
that worry about having enough food. We are responsible
for the house and the drinks. Works for Me, I am
Soooooo into KIS (Keep It Simple)!!
People' s lives are so hectic today, that the easier you
make it the more people will want to do stuff. At least
that is how I see it, and how I feel! Getting older does
have it's wisdom!! lol
Yesterday we ladies had a great time as usual, everyone
but one lady had to leave by 1, but I hung out with one
friend all day, we had a nice lunch with that leftover
Southwestern chili and salad, so that made us happy.
Well, I am tired about now, but I will try to remember
some of the things I have been thinking about all day
that I am thankful for and to Our awesome Wonderful God.
My Bed, yes, my comfy, cozy, lovely, sweet bed. Every
night when I fall into bed so tired I think Thank You
Lord for my wonderful, comfy, cozy bed. I also, think
what would it be like to have to sleep on the floor, or
a park bench, or on a cot in a homeless shelter or
under an overpass. God is so good in the lil things
as well as the big!
For my health, I feel so well these days, even tho I get
tired more easily than I used to, I am way better.....
cause there were a lot of years as I was going thru menopause
that I had all sorts of physical problems, so it is such
a treasure to feel good mentally and physically!
For the creativity God has given me. I enjoy so many
things, and creating so many things. It brings much joy
and happiness to me, and hopefully to others.
For blogging, it is another creative things I am sooooo
enjoying. I love planning and thinking about what I
can blog on, and when. I feel like it is my own lil
world to control!! lol Maybe that's why I like it,
cause you can't really control anything else!!
#5 and 6 really!
For you dear bloggy friends that encourage my
heart all the time. I love that I have found so many
Christian stay at home Moms and ladies by blogging.
So many ladies I know all work outside the home, not that
there is anything wrong with that, if that is what God
called them to, but it is not where God has called
me, and I sort of felt left in the dust so to speak.
A little like a dinosaur, but God has transformed all
that with you, and my small ladies group of women
that have recently come into my life that don't work
outside the home. what a Joy they are too!
That one of our Pastor that is in his late 70's is doing
better. He and his wife had moved back to Ohio
near their children and we were told Sunday that he
was in a Coma from an aneurysm. We were heart
broken, everyone adores them, they have been
married 50 years and are such neat and loving folks.
He is out of the coma, and off life support, and
is having trouble remembering things, and has to
go thru tests to find out what really happened, so
that is all we know for now.
I am so thankful that we serve a God who is able
to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually if and
when He chooses, and I am also thankful that if
he should choose eternal healing for our Pastor,
that we can know that we will indeed see him
again, when we get to heaven, so it isn't good
bye, it is so long, till we meet again!
What a Great Salvation Jesus has given to us!!
For my Sweet and Generous Sister-in-law Susie,
who has been buying the books we are teaching from
in Sunday School, and giving them to people that can't
afford to buy one right now. That is so nice, and has
blessed quite a few people.
That we were able to spray our yard for cinch bugs,
and hopefully it should work, it did on the front
yard. I got the recipe from the Garden Rebel
at a Home and Garden show I attended with a
friend a few years back. Who knew I would
ever need it............but I just wrote it down.
The Lord never ceases to amaze me how he
prompts things that we never even know why
we do them.
For Mexican food, I just love Mexican food
especially with cilantro on it. Yummy!!
We just polished off the enchiladas today,
and they were so good.
Well dearies..........hope you have a heart full of
gratitude today for all the small and large things
that are good in your life! If not, try to sit and
spend some time thinking about it.
One time when my dad was going thru a very tough
financial time, really of his own making, he told me in a
very tender moment that when he sat and thought
about all the things that he had to be thankful for
that you couldn't tack a dollar bill to, it made him
realize he really didn't have that many problems
and it made him feel so much better about life.
My dad didn't even claim to believe in God
at all at that time, but he even saw the benefit
to counting your blessings. Later before he passed
away he did come to know the Lord, I am
happy to say.
You have a good night now, ya hear!!
Be a Special Blessing to someone tomorrow!
Smiles, Hugs, and Blessings,
