Thankful Thursday, June 17th, 2021, and Another Father's Day table

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, LORD. 
 They rejoice in your name all day long; they celebrate your righteousness.      Psalm 89:15-16 NIV

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 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 and

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.

Love, Hugs and Mid June
