LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.
Isaiah 25:1 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends, Welcome to Summer, since it was officially Summer last Saturday.
Decided to so some Summer Decor pictures from the past.
Thankful to have our Father's Day
table all set and ready. Went with
an Italian theme since we are
having Lasagna. Will show you soon.
Thankful to have the Lasagna and
Banana Pudding all done. I know
Banana Pudding doesn't go with an
Italian theme but they all love it,
so it was the favored dessert.
I gave them all a Biscotti at their
place setting instead of candy this
Thankful for Lemon/ pistachio
Biscotti. Never had it before, as
it was a limited addition one,
and they are really good. Always
enjoy trying new foods.
Thankful for a good time with the
family on Father's Day, and think
Hubby and Son enjoyed everything.
Thankful that My Son and his
family are taking a lil vacation
to the mountains this week.
I think family vacations are
Thankful for someone who came
by our website and was nice enough
to let us know about an error we
had......so thankful for the feedback
of others in this endeavor.
Thankful for leftover Lasagna, which
not much cooking tonight. lol
Thankful for take out from Tijuana flats. It was exceptionally good this time. So really enjoyed it!!
Thankful that a friend and her children whose brother caught Covid has fortunately, not been around him recently, so was not exposed.
Thankful for my Leslie Sansone walking videos that make it easy to exercise when it is so hot out. Just got started back, as I haven't done any exercise for a month. It was time...........
#11 Thankful for delicious organic strawberries.....made some straw- berry and cream crepes on Sunday for Father's Day. So Yummy!
#12 Thankful that we can now skype with our Dr. if we don't need to be examined. I was able to get all my test results while I sat at our kitchen table yesterday. Only thing was this is all new to my Dr. so he could see me but I could only see the top of his head most of the time. lol I told him but think he just didn't know how to fix it..... cause think they are doing it on cell phones mostly. #13 Thankful that all my test results were good as well.....so always glad to hearthat. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will praise you forever; from generation to generation we will proclaim your praise. Psalm 79:13 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends, So how has your week been?? Good I hope. Ours has been good for the most part, but we have heard a lot of sad/ bad news about several people or friends who are really going thru some very tough physical things this week, which has made our hearts sad.....but thankful we can pray when there is nothing else we can do.....so that helps! Have also been preparing for Father's Day this weekend. Hope your Hubbies and Dad's have a blessed Day. Pictures today are form the rest of my golf cart tour of Charleston. Hope you enjoy them. So on with my Thankfuls.....
Thankful for "Chocolate Elvis"
smoothies that cool me off in
this sweltering summer heat.
Thankful that hubby has dis- covered and is working on some things we needed to do to make our website more visible online. So this should be helpful in a lot of ways.
Thankful we were able to get our
almost knee high grass mown...last Saturday, as we had rain every day for a week, and it was still so wet the mower kept dying out cause it was was so long and wet. So this week hubby did it early since there was no rain predictions yesterday.
Thankful for our first paying
customer on our print your own
card website....which was strange
but definitely appreciated) as we
are still giving them for free due
to the Covid 19 Pandemic.
It was just another confirmation that all our payment stuff is working
correctly and efficiently.
Thankful that our church reopened last Sunday..we didn't get to go because they recommended that if we were over 65 yrs. old or had health issues to please worship from home, in keeping with our Governors recommendations. We also know they need to have room for social distancing and families will have their children with them, since there is no nursery or childrens program or Sunday school classes yet. It has been strange not being at church for so long after being at the same church for 40 yrs., but we can watch our church service at home online and there are plenty of other Pastors to watch as well. So we have enjoyed that but will be glad when we resume.
Thankful that all the protests
were peaceful in Charleston
this passed weekend.
Thankful for a sweet and thoughtful surprise from lil darling on Wednes- day while she was here. She was watching cartoons with grampy for a few mins, while I looked up something on the computer, and she came in and said Grammy, I have a surprise for you, and lead me to my bed- room closet. She had organized most of my shoes in the closet....which really needed it....for awhile now I have thought every night as I am getting ready for bed..... you need to do something with this closet as it was just topsy tervy. But then just never got to it.....and God Bless her, she did it for me, not quite the way I would have but at least I can walk in there now and it looks much neater...lol Don't know how she knew it needed it........but what a sweet surprise from our lil 7 yr. old sweetheart.
#8 Thankful that one of my best friends hubby made it through a milogram on Wednesday and is doing okay, looks like he is going to have to have back surgery, as they said his lower back has almost collapsed. They won't know anything else till next week.
#9 Thankful that I called about the results of my mammogram cause I hadn't heard anything but wasn't worried because I know if there is a problem they typically call you back, but had to call to make a follow up appt. with my Dr. to get the results of all my tests, and I asked about the mammo results and they said they didn't have the results yet, so called the imaging place and it had not even been seen by the Dr. of Radiology yet, and it has been 8 days because someone didn't write something on it they should have.......I always tell folks to call for there results cause you never know if they might get lost somehow. This was proof positive. She said they will read them within 24 hrs., so hopefully I will get them manana. #10 Thankful that I got the all clear on my Mammogram this morning by 10 a.m. I wasn't really too worried about it, but it is always good to hear the words that everything was normal.
#11 Thankful to hear the Col. Allen West has joined "My Faith Votes" which we think is a very good organization that helps get people out to vote. We like Allen West and think he will be a very good asset to them. #12 Thankful that the family is all coming over for dinner on Sunday for Father's Day. That is always fun for all of us. Course, our Daughter and hubby will be missed but they will be coming for a visit soon. So we are looking forward to that.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week. Glad you could stop in and have a great Father's Day weekend.
Philippians 3:6-7 NIV This just happens to be my life verse since I was a young Christian, as I used to be such a worrier, this verse helped transform me from a worrier to a truster of God. Not that I never worry, but it doesn't happen for too long. I memorized the verse and every time I started to worry I would quote it to myself quietly or out loud whatever the situation called for, then did what it said, as many times as I needed to...... It eventually became a habit and chased the worry away. There is power in God's word. Have a praying and peaceful day!
who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
Psalm 66:20 NIV Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope you have had a good and peaceful week in spite of all the crazy and more crazy things going on in our country. Those of us who have a relationship with Jesus can't help but wonder if he might be coming soon, as a lot of things are lining up with scripture Course, there are people who have wondered that before....but no one knows the time or hour ofhis return but our Heavenly Father, but it sure seems like it could be a good time if you ask me. Most important thing is to make sure we are ready for when-ever it is.......and if you are not sure what I mean by that, and would like to know don't hesitate to email me at NelliesCozyPlace@gmail. com and I would be more than happy to share with you.
Pictures today are from my golf cart tour with my Daughter in mid May of more Charleston homes.....I always get a kick out doing that and taking pics So yall can enjoy it too.
So on with my Thankfuls.....
Thankful for a fun sleepover
with lil darling on Sat. nite.
Thankful for no tornadoes
touching down in our area, as
we were under watch on Sat
night, but there was one that
hit in Orlando and tore up 8 homes, thankfully, no one was hurt or killed.
Thankful for a lovely time at
our Son and Daughter-in-loves
house on Sunday. It was sort
of a belated Mother's Day get
together and Dinner. We love
Cuban food, and they have
discovered a Cuban restaurant
near them that is really good,
so we got take out from there
and we really enjoyed it.
Always fun to have some-
Thankful for the sweet card
and thoughtful gifts as well.
Thankful to hear that our
lil buddy across the street
(Which is not so lil anymore-
he graduated last year) got
hired at our local Publix just
5 mins. away.
He was working at the mall
and it was a 20 min. drive,
one way, and of course, when
covid struck they closed the
mall, so he has been without
a job, so now he has an even
better one. Awesome...cause
he is such a sweetie.
Thankful I finally was able to get my Dexa Scan and Mammogram done Tuesday, after almost 4 months. Still awaiting results!
#7 Thankful for a pretty good day out, at first we went to Home Goods, and it was hard to enjoy due to all the masks but especially trying to watch the directions on the floors and social distance as there were quite a few people in the store. So was not sure I wanted to go any where else.....but we wanted to run to Sams so we did, and they didn't have all the signs on the floors, and there were not as many people in the store, so decided to go to Pier One and Michaels too. Neither of those store had stuff on the floor either. and didn't have to keep my mask on much either, and we went to early dinner at Longhorns.....have not been out to dinner in over 2 months or more, so that was quite different as well, but it was delicious. #8 Thankful we were able to get a few things we needed and wanted. Got some faux flowers so I can do an out- side wreath finally.
#9 Thankful for some pretty pink, white and yellow carnations I got at Sams. Real ones!! and they are so pretty, and so special since I haven't had any real ones for awhile. #10 Thankful for Marty's Summer Home Tour this week. It is always quite enjoyable, and so appreciate all those that open there house for us to see. Visit Marty and see the Home Tour. Click here or go to A stroll thru life blog.
#11 Thankful for a kind comment from a complete stranger about silver hair. So nice of her. #12 Thankful always for the gift of prayer because at times like these it is sometimes the only thing we can do....yet it is the best thing we can do!!
The Prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. James 5:16 (Message Bible)
