Scripture Sunday

Good Sunday Morning
Sweet Friends,

Here is the verses for today!

If you declare with your mouth, 
“Jesus is Lord,” 
and believe in your heart that
 God raised him from the dead, 
you will be saved. 

 For it is with your heart that you
 believe and are justified, and it is 
with your mouth that you
 profess your faith and are saved.
Romans 10:9-10

It is a free gift from God
and it really is that simple.

Thankful Thursday August 6, 2020, More Summer Flowers

 I will give thanks to the LORD
 because of his righteousness; 
I will sing the praises of the name
 of the LORD Most High.
Psalm 7:17 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you are doing well and have had
a good week.

We have been in Charleston visiting 
with our Daughter, Son-in-love and furry 
Grandson dog, Bentley since last Wed. and
 just returned this Wed. night.  Had a
 good time as always.

Pictures today are of summer flowers.
Flowers always make my heart happy,
so hope they do the same for you!

So on with my Thankfuls

Thankful for a safe and uneventful
trip to Charleston and back.

#2 and 3
Thankful for a great time as always
just being together. We were able
to be outside quite a bit because 
they have a pool to cool off in.....

Very Thankful for that pool it was
such a blessing in the heat, and
made it so nice we could be out
side so much, as their yard is
gorgeous, and we all love being
out there.

Thankful for a fun time cooking

together which is always fun for
us girls.....if you gotta cook it is
always more fun to do it with
someone you love, and makes it 
faster as well.

Thankful for all the good take 
out food we enjoyed as well.

Thankful for our only fun day out, going
 to a fun Vintage/Antique/Handmade store,
 which reminds me that store in our area 
that I spoke of last week on Thankful
 Thursday, called "Adjectives".  Just such
 a neat and different store and think they
 have different vendors as well.  Have
to say we enjoyed it but not as much
as normal due to mask wearing...

Thankful we were able to make it
to the annual Bath and Body shop
Summer 75% off sale, as we made 
a haul.....Great to keep on hand as 
gifts or just something great for a
random act of kindness gift.

Thankful for most of the day out as 
it was a special day out to celebrate
our Daughters birthday topped off
by going to dinner at Longhorns.
We were going to Carrabbas as that
is her fav but we found out their
Carrabbas has gone out of business.
Which was a bummer but dinner
at Longhorns was great too.
We celebrated early since we won't
be seeing her on her birthday.

Thankful that the tropical storm was 
just that, as it went by our house in
Florida and as it passed us, up here
 in Charleston. We only had slight
wind and rain both places.
Thank You Jesus!

Thankful for watching a lot of
 drybar comedy shows at night.
We watched some very funny 
and clean comedians. Humor
is a much needed thing for us
 in the times we are living in.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, 

Proverbs 17:22 NIV

Thankful that we had great
weather the majority of the time,
only bad day, was rain on Monday 
as the storm came through.  It was
even cool enough to sit outside in
the early evening a few times since
it was so breezy, and that was a
very nice and unexpected surprise.

Thankful for fresh warm donuts
from a place called "The fractured
Prune".  They have some delish that is always some
thing we all look forward to every
since we have discovered them.

Thankful for the change of scenery
and just being out of our house for


Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
This was our 
Summer Vacation edition.  lol

Thanks for stopping in.....
hope you have a great weekend.

So....What are you Thankful for 
this week?

Love, Hugs, and
First week of August Blessings,

Happy Sunday Morning
Sweet Friends,

Here are the verses for today!

The LORD is near to all who call on him,

 but all the wicked he will destroy.

Thankful Thursday, July 30, 2020, Simple Summer Supper Table

 Great is the LORD 
and most worthy of praise;
 his greatness no one can fathom. 
Psalm 145:3

Greetings Sweet Friends,

How are ya??  Doing well,  I hope.

We are doing well....praying like crazy
 for peace in our country,  and for people
 to come to their senses. Imagine and
hoping many of you are doing the same.

Pictures today are of our Supper table 
from this passed weekend.  I just wanted
 to use some yellow.......but I don't have
a lot of yellow things but managed to 
scrape up a few things to use as a center-
piece, and the yellow just made my heart
 happy. Remember I told you a few weeks
 ago about my infatuation with yellow
 once  again........... 

So on with my Thankfuls.............

Thankful for a good Dr. visit with
my husband cardiologist.  He still
has to get an echocardiogram in
August, but it's just routine as Dr. 
feels he is doing well.

Thankful that we got to go to a
unique store called "Adjectives".
It has a lot of vintage things and
 antiques, it's like a blast from
the past.  We so enjoy going there
cause it's just so different, and we
only go about once a year since
it is an hour away and near the
Cardiologist office. So always

Thankful that one of our Daughter
and Son-in-loves vacationers in
their beach cottage left a long and
very sweet review,  that was just 
so encouraging to them. They have
 worked very hard to think of every
thing possible that will make their
 place special and not just for them-
selves but great for others as well.
This was like a reward for all their
hard work and the desire of their 
hearts.  I didn't know it but they 
have 5 reviews and they are all
 5 star reviews.  Gratifying!

Thankful we were finally able to
get some food from Taco Bell,
after visiting some other stores.
We have been to the one near us
 twice, and the line was so long
and moving so slowly we decided
to go somewhere else. It was
very enjoyable for sure.

Thankful for a fun time with the
family on Saturday, they came
over for dinner and we yakked
and ate and some of us played
the wii.....nice time!

Polar Coordinates -
My Alice in Wonderland Affect.  lol

Thankful for Waldorf Salad, that
was part of our dinner, along with
Pork chops and sweet potatoes.
We tend to love fruit salads, and 
Waldorf is one of our favorites.

Thankful for my sweet Son's
thoughtfulness.  He potted and
 brought me some flowering plants
 that he had an overflow of.....Not
 sure yet where I will put them,
but will figure it out I am sure.

Thankful to hear President Trump
got the prices of diabetes meds
down to a very low price.  That
will be very helpful to a lot of
people, especially seniors that 
can't afford those high prices.

Thankful that we were very
energetic on Monday and got
a lot accomplished.

Thankful for a comfy bed to
sleep in every night, and for
sleeping well most of the time.

Thankful for Trinity Broadcasting
 network. We find so much spiritual
 food on TBN, that we are delighted

Thankful for a fun surprise last night.
I checked facebook and I had an instant
message from a lil girl (who is probably
in her 50's now) who we used to know
over 40 yrs. ago when we lived in
South Florida.  Don't know how in
the world she found us cause she was
about 14 or so when we last saw her.
What a sweet blast from the past.

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

Thanks for coming by.....and have
 a nice Thursday, Friday and 

Love, Hugs and
Last week of July Blessings,

Thankful Thursday July 23, 2020, Summer Flowers

When anxiety was great within me,
    your consolation brought me joy.

Psalm 94:19 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you well, sane
and having a good week.

Have to say those things are
a bit harder than they used to

We are so
 Thankful for God's word.....
as it keeps us well, sane and
having a good week for sure.

Pictures today of lovely 
Summer Flowers......

Thankful that we finally got to take
 dinner to the parents of some gals
that used to be in our bible study
years back.  Their parents go to our
 church and of course, we know them
just not super well.  Their Mom has
cancer and is very exhausted. It was
great to be able to do something for 
them and to see them all for a few 
minutes, as our hearts are really
go out to them.

Thankful that after we delivered dinner,
we went and got a chocolate Elvis
smoothie, then went to Michaels crafts 
and got a few new things for us to
do with lil darling, ran to Kirklands,
but only had 5 mins. as they close
at 7pm. now,  Have to say it was good
to see a store that looked normal.
Then we ran to Sam's and got a few
things and they had a huge area with
nothing in it, very not normal.
 Then to dinner at Longhorn's.
 It was nice to get out of the house for 
awhile but definitely quite different,
 while wearing masks, (of course, not
while eating) but still thankful for these
small pleasures. I keep forgetting how 
early everything closes now. 

Thankful that I happened on
a snack treat that we found
several years ago in World
Market in Charleston but have
never been able to find since,
and they had it at Sam's so
that was the highlight of our
trip there.   lol
It is a lemon/blueberry granola 
treat and they are delicious.

Thankful that my daughter's
co-worker and friend had her 
covid test come back negative.

Thankful for the "Doc" series,
as we are rewatching it as it is
just such a great show. We found
it on Pureflix.

Thankful we got our ficus tree
repotted this week,  as it was
very root bound and was show-
ing signs of being unhealthy.  
So hopefully it will do much
 better now.

Thankful to be back in church
this past Sunday.  It was very
 different but still good to be there. 
 We had decided to go out to lunch
 with our  friends, so we decided to
 give it a try.  The church had
 recommended all those of 65 yrs. 
and older worship with them on 
TV which is what we have been 
doing. It was sure good to see 
everyone even if you could 
only see half their face.  lol
and wave at them or say some-
thing from a distance.

Thankful we got to go out to 
lunch with our friends to Cracker
Barrel.  It has been about 4 mos.
We have talked on the phone but
that has been almost a month too,
as they went to visit there son
for awhile. Nice for all of us
to catch up.

Thankful that God made our 
world have color.....imagine
our world in just black and would be pretty
dull and boring.

Thankful I finally got to wear my
 beautiful  double heart Mother/
Daughter necklace my Daughter
 got me for Mother's Day this year.
  It's the first time for me to wear it
 since we haven't been dressing up
 to go anywhere.
It looked very pretty!

Thankful to see that someone
painted "Babies lives matter"
in pink and blue in front of
an abortion clinic.

Thankful that hubby has learned
how to make Caramel Frappes like
the ones they have at MacDonalds.
Loving those babies..... 


Well, that's it for cozy place 
this week............

Glad to see you stopped by
hope you have a good day
and weekend.

Safe Blessings to you and yours,

Our Master Bedroom Refresh

Hello Sweet Friends,

How are you doing??
Hope this finds you doing well  and not
letting all the craziness get you down 
too much......I know it is hard.....we
have had our days too.

I just happened to come across this
 post I started months ago, and had
 completely forgotten about. 
 All the pictures were posted already, 
so figured I might as well fill in 
between the pictures and post it....
Maybe the colors will cheer you up.....
they do me.  Our bedroom is still like
 this as we just finished this refresh
back in September of 2019. Just now
saw the date on't
realize it had been that long.

Our color choices came from our Quilt,
which you will see below.

This is the top of our armoire.
This yellow on our walls looks a lot
darker than it really is.

                         Showed you this along time ago when                                                  we first got it.  It holds all of lil
                               darlings toys and goodies.


           I redid the wall, and the top of it.
       I made printables and put them on 
wooden clip boards I got at the 
dollar tree.

Just in case you are interested, you 
can find lots of free printables at

Here is a side wall

Our bed......
Still trying to decide if I should just paint
 the piece that is above the bed or just
get something entirely different.

I absolutely love the colors in our quilt,
 and know it might look like a teenagers
 bed but I just loved it..... the colors and
the pattern. Found it in the "At Home"

Very soothing color palette as far as
I am concerned anyway.

Hubbies night stand

My night stand 

Our love seat we have in there.
Have it covered with a twin
comforter as it is old as the 
hills.  lol

the table beside the love seat.

corner of our bedroom on my side
of the bed.

One of these days I am gonna get 
these night stands painted white.
I have to say I am just not as 
motivated about stuff like that
as I used to be.....think that must
come with age.  lol

I actually saw an elongated sign at 
Kirklands the other day I really liked and 
thought I wish I had somewhere to put that...
and as I was looking at the above picture
I thought............
 I think over my bed might be the perfect
place.  Then I can paint the brown piece a
cream color and put it out side on the front
of our house.  Will have to work on that!!

Well, that is our Summer bedroom, and
think we started it the end of Spring of
2019 and put the finishing touches on
 in the Fall....So it's been awhile,  but
 I still love and enjoy it very much!!

Thanks for coming by,  hope you
enjoyed your visit.

Love, Hugs and 
Sunny July Blessings,
