Greetings Sweet Friends,
So how are you?? Doing well I hope, and also hope yall are enjoying more freedom from masks and social distancing these days. Have to say it is so nice not to wear those things and worry about how close you are to people, not that I want to be so up close and personal with those I don't know, but sometimes I would forget about the distancing and get a lil to close without thinking about it.....and get some looks, so nice not to have to be so careful about that now.
Pictures today are from an older post of a our Father's Day table some years back. If you would like to see the whole post..........You can click here
So on with my Thankfuls.....
Thankful our Daughter made it home safe and sound and had a good time while she was here.
Thankful for the lovely breezy weather oncethe sun starts to go down. Shocking really as it has been like 100-102 degrees in the daytime.....so it is lovely and refreshing for sitting out in the back yard in the early to late evening.
Thankful for a quick and easy craft I
saw on someone's blog, that might be
perfect for lil darling to make for her
Daddy for Father's day, if I can come
up with an idea that isn't for 4th of July.
Note: Came up with an idea that isn't
for the 4th, but would be good for all
the time, so it will become a lil project
for the summer, cause realized we
wouldn't have enought time to do it
in one day, but think it is something
lil darling will enjoy doing and Daddy
will enjoy receiving as well.
Thankful for a new elder in our church,
that did the preaching on Sunday.
We had never met him as he is from
our other campus, in another close
by city. We really liked him, and it
was great to meet and talk to him
Thankful to know that the Youth Pastor
that is leading our church right now...........
also plays the guitar, we never knew that,
and it was so neat because he also had his
10 yr. old son play the keyboard, and his
13 yrs. old daughter and her friend
(another lil girl) from our congregation
sing with them. Also we had a special
offeratory song and music from another
young girl in the congregation that
we were not familiar with. So it was
really neat to see all these young people
serving the Lord in these capacities.
After all, they are the future of the
church. So neat!
#6 and 7
Thankful for a nice lunch out with our
friends at Perkins, and then we all went
back to church for a celebration of Life Service
for another one of our Pastorate families, Mother.
It was truly such a lovely service befitting of the
Loving and Wonderful lady she is....Thankful
These services are always such a reminder
of the blessing it is to know the Lord and
to know we are all heaven bound one day.
Hope you all know Jesus, and that you are
heaven bound one day....but if not, and
you want to make sure, but are not sure
how.....please send me an email at
I will be more than happy to explain
it to you!
Thankful for some new cookies we found
at our Publix grocery store. They are
called "Cranberry Honey Cookies" and
they are really good.
Thankful that I quickly found a theme
for our Father's Day table, was thinking
of going with a computer theme (since
both our dads like computers) but was
trying to figure out how to make it look
colorful and attractive. So in between
lunch and the Celebration Service we
ran to Dollar tree and within minutes
I found a theme that was perfect and
colorful and attractive. Whoo Hoo!
Hopefully, you will see it next week.
Thankful for my Thoughtful and Sweet
neighbor who sent us a pan of home
made Lasagna via her Sweet Grandson.
Din Din for Tonight! Whoo Hoo!
and Thankful she sent over some pasta
salad the next day which became part
of dinner again. Awesome and made
for easy dinner making both nights.
Thankful that we have had rain for the
last 4 days, and it was very much needed,
our grass and plants seem to be smiling! lol
Thankful for a fun night out shopping, and
that we have everything we need
gift wise, and food wise and table wise
....for Father's Day this Sunday. Just have
to wrap, cook, and set the table now.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
Thanks for stopping in.....
Keep your light shining brightly.
