Thankful Thursday March 21, 2019, More Spring flowers

 But let all who take refuge in you
 be glad; let them ever sing for joy.
 Spread your protection over them,
 that those who love your name 
may rejoice in you.
Psalm 5:11 NIV

Welcome to Spring
 Sweet Friends,

She has officially arrived and
know many of you are soooo
happy about that..........

Hope you have had a very good 
week.  Ours has been a mix of
not so good the first 3 days
since last Thursday, and very
 busy, yet very good, the last 
part of the week until now.

Was sick over the weekend, and 
then found out my cousin passed
away over the weekend, on Mon-
day.....She was 76 yrs. old and
single, and lived in Pennsylvania,
Gosh, I can't even remember the
 last time we saw each other, but 
we did talk on the phone at times.
She used to live with her sister
until she passed about 10 yrs.
ago,  then she moved near her
younger brother.  She will surely
be missed.....

Picture today will be of flowers
again as I have nothing else to
show you until I get my house

Thankful that my daughter-in-love
and lil darling are mostly better 
now, and so far, my son hasn't
gotten any of it.....

Thankful I am feeling better as I
was feeling bad over the weekend,
and was already struggling before
 with what I thought werre allergies
 or maybe fighting off a virus.

Thankful my son got home safe
and sound from Spain and was
able to look after his wife and
lil darling over the weekend.

Thankful hubby did not catch any
thing from the rest of us sickies.

Thankful for lots of rest and sleep.

#6 and 7
Thankful that I got all my Winter
Decor down and Thankful for
 lil darling's help last Thursday,
 She did a great job of helping.

Thankful that I got to talk to my 
cousin Donna again last week,
 because I got a call that she had
 passed away over the weekend.
This is the same lady who asked me
 (just 10 days before her passing) to 
make Easter cards for her family.
 So I am gonna complete that 
mission next month.

Thankful that Donna was such
 a sweet and loving person and
most of all she knew the Lord,
and we know she is in Heaven
 with so many other family
 members that have gone on 
before us.

Thankful that the Lord layed
it on my heart to design a
Wedding Invitation for our
friend who is getting married.
She and her fiancee' both
loved it............

Thankful for the big and small
ways the Lord blesses us. I have
been looking for periwinkle blue
towels for probably 7-8 years,
and could never find the right
ones, even tho I brought some
home thinking they were...they
were always to much navy in
them. Last night I was in 
Penneys on the way to the rest
room, and ran right into a table
full of towels that were on sale
and there they were.  They only
had 6 bath towels left, but didn't
see any hand towels so did a
lil searching around and found
those too, So came home with
them and they are a perfect
match.........Good things come
to those who wait....I always
say! I am just tickled pink,
or should I say

Thankful that our roofer (the 
one who is gonna do our shed 
remodel is okay. He and his boss
 slide off a very tall roof, but 
fortunately, the Lord protected 
them because they slide where 
there was a lower roof, so they 
didn't fall off the house, but he
did injure his knee some, but
it could have been so much
worse, as one of the other men
did fall all the way to the ground
and fortunately it didn't kill him
but did really injure his leg

Well, there you have it folks,

Glad you could come by for a visit.

Would love you to tell us something
you are thankful for as well.

Have a wonderful March weekend.

Love, Hugs, and
Happy Spring Blessings,

Quotes to Ponder............

Happy St. Patrick's Day
Sweet Friends,

How this finds you well and happy 
and wearing some green......
So you don't get pinched.  lol

Since I have been feeling under
the weather again.....I had this
quote in my draft box, so....
decided today would be a good
day to use it.

“You know what makes your heart
 refreshed, the things that make you 
come alive. We need to drink in
 beauty wherever we can get it—
in music, in nature, in art, in a 
great meal shared. These are all 
gifts to us from God’s generous
heart. Friends, those things are 
not decorations to a life, 
they bring life.” 

By John Eldredge

I so agree with him.....

Have a lovely and Restful day

Hugs and Irish Blessings to you!

Thankful Thursday March 14, 2019, Spring flowers

Let the heavens rejoice,
 let the earth be glad;
 let them say among the nations, 
“The LORD reigns!”
1 Chronicles 16:31 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this has been a good week
for you.....

Have to say this week has really
been a better than usual kind of
week for us. Seems like the Lord,
has just dumped a basketful of
blessings on us.

Not much going on the last few
days accept having lil darling 
with us for a few days, and you
 will read why in my post.

Decided just to add some Spring
flowers from my archives since
I haven't had time to do any
editing of photos this week,
so hope it makes the promise
of Spring real to you since it
 should officially be arriving
next week....seems like it has
already arrived here in Florida.

So on with my Thankfuls....

Thankful that our daughter got
home safe and sound and that
we all had a good time with her
while she was here.  It was 
short but sweet but, we will
take what we can get!!  lol

Thankful that we were introduced
to a young man at church who had
evidently been a prodigal and had
a very life changing experience
with the Lord.  He was just undone
by how God rescued him and was
crying one minute and laughing
the next.  So refreshing when we
get to see God work like that!

Thankful for a Memorial Service
we attended on Sunday for a 94
yr. old lady who has been a mem-
ber of our church for approx. 30
years. What a celebration of her
life and what a great job her
children did of honoring her life.
She had 7 daughters and 1 son,
(the son passed away years ago)
and 25 grandchildren, 25 great
grand children and 5 great great
grandchildren and was married
to the same man for 70 years.
(and he just passed 2 years ago).
What a tremendous legacy this
stay at home, Godly Mother
has left behind. She was such
a loving lady, and I used to
be in leadership with her in a
 bible study and we all prayed
together and it was like you
were ushered right into the
presence of God when she
prayed.  Wonderful lady.

Thankful that we got to see
a long time friend and her
daughter at the Memorial
Service. I used to take care
 of her daughter when she
was younger as her Mom
was a single parent, and
the daughter expounded to 
us all the good memories 
she had of staying with us. 
 So precious to hear....and
really blessed our hearts.

Thankful my son made it to
Spain safely. Another trip
with work...........and will be
 flying home today. Friday.

Thankful for getting to talk
with my cousin, twice this
week, and for the priviledge
of  her asking me to make
 some cards for her family
for Easter. 

Thankful that the Lord gave
us 2 more confirmations about
our business that is in the works.
Someone has coined these
 experiences as God Winks
I love that....

Thankful that the Lord showed
me how he can turn a seemingly
frustrating day into a very pro-
fitable day in just minutes.
He never ceases to amaze me.

Thankful that we heard from
2 other long time guy friends.
(Jeff and Don - so I  remember)
One of which is coming to
town this Thursday, so we
are suppose to have dinner
with him. Turned out we 
weren't able to go as we were 
needed here, which is fine, and
 he will be coming back down
 our way in April, so we will
get to see him then.

Thankful that my friend who
is getting married in June,
got a good report from the
Dr. about a biopsy she had
 to have.... Dr. feels sure it is 
just a cyst and nothing to 
worry about, course, she
won't get final results of
the test until next week,
but we are expecting the
same news.

Thankful that my daughter-
in-love was able to get to
the Dr. today (Thursday).
Her Mom had to take her as 
she is really sick and weak,
and my son is in Spain, so 
we have Brooklyn. They 
said she was in the early 
stages of the flu, plus an ear 
and sinus infection. They are
hoping the meds will cause
it not to last as long. She
was a pretty sick girl this
morning, but is feeling 
better already, and hopefully
after  rest and a good nights
 sleep she will be way better
tomorrow. We had a sleep
over with lil darling, so she
could rest, and hopefully
keep lil one from getting
it as she is still getting
over a virus she had.

Thankful we have a prayer
chain I could put her on as
well.  So hopefully she will
be feeling good as new soon.


Well, that's it for Cozy Place
this week..........

Glad you could stop by, and
hope you enjoyed your visit

Have a great St. Patrick's Day!!

Love, Hugs and
St. Patrick's Day Blessing,

Winter/Spring Birthday Table

Hello Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you well
 and happy.

It's been a very good week
here so far...........

Today I have just be doing
 laundry and looking online
for a beach condo to rent
for summer cause the one
we usually get is already
rented.  poo.....course, we
haven't been there in 5-6
yrs. as we always go visit
our daughter, but we all
thought it would be fun to
 rent one this year and all
have a fun time together
 since it has been so long. 
So I am on the hunt....but
it is exhausting!!  
So took a break, got a snack
 and then decided to do this 
post, since hubby is outside
working on sprinklers still,
since it has been the perfect
day for it as it has mostly
been overcast all day.

Hunting will have to wait
for a fun days which is fine
by me....

Thought I would show you
my sister-in-law Susans 
birthday table.  I had these
paper goods leftover from
another time last year, but
changed up the tablecloth
to blue instead of white
and used different glasses
silverware and centerpiece.

 I think these are just some of the
 prettiest paper goods I have ever seen.

I love to team up pretty paper-
goods with real silverware and 
glasses and make it look more 
elegant, rather than like you
just slapped some stuff 
on the table.  lol

I love that you don't have to have 
pretty dishes
 in order to have a pretty table.

Notice I used the glass cylinders
that had snow and white candles
and also silver mercury glass votives,
those would be the Winter look.

The dark blue can work of either
or Spring/Summer.

As well as the flowers but they
 make me 
think of Spring more....

The light blue tablecloth 
definitely seems
 like Spring to me too.

Amazing how changing up the
accessories can make a new
and different tablescape.

just for the fun of it.

Scripture Sunday

Happy Sunday Morning,

Hope this finds you well.....

Here are the verses for today!!

 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may
 strengthen you with power through his Spirit in
 your inner being, 
 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through
 faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and 
established in love,
 may have power, together with all the Lord’s
 holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high
 and deep is the love of Christ, 
 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—
that you may be filled to the measure of all the 
fullness of God. 
 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably 
more than all we ask or imagine, according to his
 power that is at work within us, 
 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
 throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3:16-21  

Have a Glorious Day,

Thankful Thursday March 7, 2018, Winter Living room Part 2

I will sing the LORD’s praise, 
for he has been good to me.
Psalm 13:6 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you first week of March
has been a good one.

Ours has been busy but good, 
with a few bumps/and joys
 in the road.
I was under the weather for a
few days since last Thursday
and lil darling was sick with 
virus, but doing better now.

Our daughter came on Thurs.
afternoon, and it was so good
to see her as always, she just
left around noon today (Sat.)
Hence the reason this post is so
It is always so good to see her
but we are always sorry to see 
her go, but thankful that we got 
to see her no matter how long...

Pics today are from the rest of 
our Winter Living room. If you
missed Part 1 and would like
to see it, Just click here.

Now on with my Thankfuls......

Thankful that my blood pressure
is back to normal.....for some 
strange reason my blood pressure
was higher than normal for a few
days, and I was feeling rather
jittery, irritable and tired. I was
going thru my normal hormonal
time of not sleeping well, and
looked it up, online to see if lack
of sleep could cause that and it
said it could, so hoping that is
all there was to it.  I have never
experienced that before.

Thankful for a great time with
the family on Sunday celebrating
my sister-in-law and lil darlings
birthday. A good time was had
by all..............

Thankful my hubby got my
camera settings straightened
out, as my pictures were not
coming out was like
the aperature was opening 
too much and letting in too
much light or something.
Anyway, my hero, Mr fix it,
fixed it again...........

Thankful for a really neat 
movie we watched called
"I Believe". About a young
boy who just took God at
his word, very inspiring

Thankful that hubby once
again was able to fix some-
thing....this time it was our just quit working 
but he did some research
online and figured out how
to fix it. He never ceases
to amaze me.

Thankful that my daughter
is gonna get to be here for
hubbies birthday celebration

timing worked out perfectly

blessing of watching a
video of a daughter (who
was adopted for Latvia
several years ago, singing
with her brothers.  She
has come along way and
