Psalm 16:7 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope you are having a good week. I have to say I am
not getting anywhere too quickly. Taking down some
of my Christmas but still trying to decide what to take
down and what to leave. lol It has also been a rather
busy week people wise, lots of hard things going on
for others, so been on the phone, talking, texting and
praying for a number of people. You know the old saying
when it rains it pours..... but thankful to be a listening
ear and hopefully an encouragement as well.
Pictures today are from Winter's Past again, since
I am still in process of putting our house back
#1 and 2
Thankful for the opportunity to supply informational
support and prayer for my friend, who is a new
Grandmother, and her Daughter and new baby.
Mom and baby were going thru a very rough time
but Thankful to report they are doing better, but as
we all know it can be a good day and a bad day the
next but seems to be more good days, and she went
back to the Dr. and baby has gained more weight
and seems to be more content and sleeping better.
So we feel the Lord is answering our prayers.
Thankful that I have started to take down our
Christmas decorations. The ornaments are off
the tree, but thinking I might just leave the tree
up in it's natural state with the lights, will see.
Am removing the really Christmasy looking
things, so will see where I go from there. lol
Thankful for a long but good day on Sunday.
Went to church and out to lunch to Olive Garden
with our friend that's the new grandmother, and
her hubby and younger daughter. this was their first
time back at church since the March shutdown.
So it was good to see them. Then we needed to kill
some time so we ran to JoAnns Crafts and looked
around, then went to a Memorial Service for a
friends brother, then ran to Publix quick, and
didn't get home till 5:30, so we were pretty
whipped by then. Have to say it was nice to
be out of the house for most of the day for a
Thankful for a number of opportunities lately to be
very intentional in showing love, care and kindness
to others, when we really didn't feel like it, but
pushed through and did it anyway, and were
very happy we did.
Thankful that I spray painted my real spruce
Christmas wreath white, and put a bow on it
and hopefully it will take us thru the Winter
Season. I saw a faux one and thought, wonder
if I could do that with my wreath since I already
had a can of white spray paint. So it was a
quick and easy project, that turned out pretty
well, I think...........will see how long it lasts!! lol
Thankful for a lovely chat I had with our young
neighbor boy, that lives across the street, we have
known and loved him since he was about 5 yrs. old,
he is 20 yrs. old now and working at our Publix
Grocery store, and has a sweet lilt girlfriend of 2 years.
We see him and wave across the way, but haven't really
gotten to talk to him up close and personal in awhile,
due to Covid. When he was younger he used to come
over at times......and we all miss that, so think we are
gonna try to get together and play games or something
one night and get to know his girlfriend, as we have only
met her once at their graduation. He is just the most
precious kid, and has been through a lot in his young
life, but seems to have learned from it all and is headed
in a different direction than what he was shown by
his parents. So proud of him. and thank the Lord
for his Grandparents who have pretty much
rescued and raised him.
Thankful that the Lord woke me up one morning
with a scripture going thru my head which was a
great reminder to me of something I already know
but had kinda of lost sight of.......it was very helpful.
Thankful that we decided to take the new discovery+
channel, we are really enjoying it.....lots of great shows
that are clean and family friendly.
Thankful that we heard about one of our former Pastors
that got Covid and is in ICU, and Wednesday they were
considering putting him on a ventilator, but God has heard
everyones prayers and he is doing better, not out of ICU yet,
but progressing in the right direction. PTL.....
Thankful my new computer came in on Tuesday, Hubby is
still in process of reinstalling things. Hoping we can recover
everything, will have to wait and see..........last time we had
backed things up was early November, so did lose some
cards that I made with our newer card package, but not
too many thankfully. Have lots more in our old card
package that I still need to convert over, but so far, he
has not been able to install it that card package, so we
are praying and hoping that will be possible, cause that
will be a whole lot of lost work, probably about 10 yrs.
worth at least.
Thankful We got to see lil darling yesterday
nd for awhile on Friday. She is back in school
which means are time with her is more limited
of course, so always Thankful for the time
we get to spend with her.
Well............that's it for Cozy Place this week.
Glad you could drop by, and hope you have a
really nice rest of the week and weekend.
Love, Hugs and
Mid January Blessings,
