Thankful Thursday November 10, 2016, Fall living room #3

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you are doing well and feeling
encouraged in spite of this past week,
as I know it has been quite a week.

Know I am quite late, but just been
living life.............

Thought I would add the photos of
 the last of my Fall decorations in the
 living room...........

 I am just gonna get on with it
as all my thankfuls are already
done, just need to get it

I am thankful

for our Veterans who have given
their lives for our freedom and
for the Veterans and their families
 who have sacrificed so much to
fight for our freedoms that we 
have.  Where would our nation
be without them. We are grate-
ful to you from the bottom of
our heart.....and we pray that
the Lord blesses you in 
Amazing ways.
Thank You for what you did
or what you are doing now
for us and our nation.

Happy Veteran's Day to You!!

for the pleasant surprise last
Friday of a friend dropping
by unexpectedly and spending
some time with me.  Was nice
to catch up and great to know
she is doing so well.

for a fun night out shopping
for our son's birthday and for
our anniversary. Then dinner at 
a new to us, Mexican restaurant
called Habaneros, however,
we weren't overly impressed 
with the food,  but it was a
 nice change, at least.  lol

for a fun time with the whole
 family on Sunday as we
 celebrated Scott's birthday. He
is now Jack Benny age!  lol
Some of you will get that... but
others that are younger probably
not!!  lol

for 46 years of marriage with
my sweet hubby.  Could never
imagine my life without him.

Here we are  in 1970

Just in case you might be interested
 in reading our story.

Click Here for Part 2  How are 
marriage was saved

It was written
7 yrs. ago................when I first
started blogging........not much
has changed accept both our
children are grown and married
and we have a 3+ yrs. old grand-
daughter that we adore and get to
watch every Wednesday. We are
still living in the same city, and
the same home, going to the same 
church and still working with 
married couples, and enjoying
our lives together.  What can I
say but.......God is good.

for a very nice evening 
 reminiscing over our many years
together, and looking at wedding
 pics, etc.
It wasn't exactly what we had 
planned, as he was suppose to
be off work Mon and Tues. but
due to a crisis at work we decided
for him to move those days to
Thanksgiving week, but he got to
work at home at least, but it sort
of put a damper on the day, but
it actually turned out to be quite
a nice evening. We were gonna go 
out to dinner, but my sciatica was
 acting up a lot and I really didn't
 feel like going out, and he was
 gonna go get take out,  but we had
 leftovers from Scotts dinner, which 
was cuban food, and that sounded
much better to us, and it heats up
well, so we had that and the next
night he brought home Italian food
 from Carrabas, so we got to
 celebrate for 2 nights. 
 Works for me!
and I set a pretty table and we had
 our sparkling red grape juice we 
bought just for the ocassion, but 
totally forgot about the night

for a new refrigerator even tho
we didn't need it yet.....Our old
one is 35+ yrs. old, and it is that
bisque, biscuit or almond color,
and getting very hard to find.
We have been waiting almost
2 yrs. trying to find a decent
dishwasher in that color. Still
Nada.....anyway, got to thinking
if our fridge went out, we would
be stuck having to buy staineless
steel, which would look terrible
in the kitchen with all our other
appliances..........and figured we
can do without a dishwasher
but we can't do without a fridge.
It was delivered on our Anniv.
and I really can't believe how
 excited I am over the new fridge,
 guess practicality really does
 come with age!!  lol
I am absoutely thrilled with it,
as it has the freezer on the bottom
and the fridge up top.  Everything
is right up there where you can
see, and it means not a lot of
bending over.  Also will be easier
to clean.....  I can stand up to do
it rather than killing my back or
having to sit in a
So I am more thrilled with it as
the days go by.

that my daughter has a new job
2 days a week in her field, which
is Radiology, but she specialized
 in Mammography. She will start
 on December 5th,  and she is 
very excited about it.
Then later in the week she was
offered another job doing Dexa
scans, and it is just one day to
1 1/2 days, but she sets her own
schedule and can work it around
her mammography schedule.
She starts there next week.
So she has accomplished her
goal of being able to work
when she wants and to have
the flexibility to take off when
she wants to come visit or when
others come to visit with them.

very thankful, that my daughter
in love, Megan was not hurt in
an auto accident this week. and
yes, in their new was a
minor fender bender, so she is
fine and so was the other lady.
Unfortunately, the new car was
slightly damage and in the shop
being repaired, but it could have
been so much worse.  So thank-
ful for the Lord's watch care
over her as well. If you haven't
been by in son was
just in an auto accident last
week..........and he is fine too,
and she was in the new car
that just got replaced from
his accident.

that her Dad and step-Mom
 were able to loan her their car 
until she gets her's back next

that God has heard the prayers of
 his people about who the best choice
 for President was, even tho it seems
 the lesser of the 2 evils........
The Lord can use anyone He chooses
 to accomplish His purposes. I believe 
this election has been prayed over more
than any election that I have ever
 known of, and now if we American's
 will just continue to pray for our 
leaders as much now, as we did when
 the campaign was going on,  I believe
God will heal our land....but I
believe it is truly up to us, 
according to 2 Chronicles 7:14

if my people, who are called by my name,
 will humble themselves and pray and seek
 my face and turn from their wicked ways, 
then I will hear from heaven, and 
I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

for a verse that was in our up-
coming Sunday school lesson
for this Sunday.

It is Proverbs 21:1

 The king's heart is in the
 hand of the LORD,
 as the rivers of water: 
he turneth it whithersoever he will.

Just the fact, that it was in our
 lesson for this week, with the
 election being this week,  it
just really spoke to me of
 God's sovereignty even over
bringing encouragement to
us when we need it most.
This is a 3 yr. study course we 
are one could have
planned that.....some will say
oh, that is just a coincidence,
but I believe it was a divine
word of encouragment to
God's children.

Well,  there you have it.....
another week at Cozy Place.

Thanks so much for coming by,

always happy to know you were

Have a lovely weekend with those

 you love and hold dear.
God Bless our Veterans and
the USA...........

Love, Hugs and Blessings,

  1. Like your living room. It's so cozy. Thanks for visiting me, too!

  2. #1. Yes, thank our LORD for those now, Jim and those who have passed away, your dad and mine.
    #2. It's always so great to get good news.
    #3. Yes, Happy Birthday to Scott, and Happy Anniversary to you and Jim! Eating out is always enjoyable.
    #4. I so enjoy these occasions with family!
    #5. Almost a half a century, Wow!
    #6. GOD is great, GOD is good, let us thank Him for our lives! I pray you are feeling better. I pray every day for your neck and back.
    #7. Yea! You will enjoy the fridge on top! I remember when I had one of those. If nothing
    else, you could put all your freezer items in your other fridge and you won't have to bend over at all!
    #8. GOD is great! Did she have to get "re-certified" for S. Carolina?
    #9.Oh my dear!!! I'm so glad she is well and that Brooklyn wasn't with her. I shall pray for the LORD to bless them with their auto insurance too.
    #10. Thank the LORD for parents who are able to help out! I remember when dad a couple times had to come to Palm Beach from Key West when I was in college to fix my car!
    #11. Amen, and Keep Trump/Pence in your prayers that the present administration doesn't pass some "executive orders" that would hinder Trumps administration with Israel.
    #12.Yes, this was shared after the mention of the above #11. The LORD has amazingly led me in specific prayers every day when I start to pray for our country. Our GOD is so great!
    I love you all, Susan

  3. Hi Susan,

    I really do love the new is so convenient.
    That is a good idea about the freezer, but so far, it hasn't been a problem, but good idea
    if it should become one.......

    Yes, Dee did have to get recertified, but it was just a matter of paperwork, thankfully.

    I feel very strongly that we had better stay on the prayers for our leaders for as long
    as we are living on this earth............

    Thanks for your visit,
    Love ya, Nellie
