Colossians 2:6-7 NIV
Wow.....Since we live in Florida.....
a lot has happened since I posted last,
so since I couldn't post last Thursday,
cause our power went out on Wed. evening
before the storm even came anywhere
near us, so just decided to combine 2 weeks
worth of Thankful Thursdays. So hope
you don't mind......
Pictures today are from Falls in the
So on with my Thankfuls......
Before the Hurricane
Thankful for a great day with lil darling,
doing school work and visiting and having
fun when we could and she also was able
to have her lil friend next door over again.
So while they were playing we got to visit
with her Daddy a lil bit.
Thankful that as a believer in Jesus, that
he sent his holy spirit to take up residence
in my life, and the life of every believer.
So when God says He is with you always,
He truly is......
Thankful for hearing about a miracle that
we and others diligently prayer for. Some-
one's hubby had an intestinal blockage and
it was looking like they were gonna have to
have surgery, but God.....they did a CT scan
with contrast to see where they would need
to do the surgery and the contrast removed
the blockage, so NO surgery necessary!!
Truly a miracle!! God is so good!!
and He is out of the hospital and doing
Thankful to have finished up the cards that were in process 3 more down. I am working on Pastor appreciation cards, and we have a lot of Pastors............lol
Thankful for a new series we found called "Raising Bates". It is about a Christian family who has 19 children, and we love it. It's an amazing series so far, we have watched about 4 episodes now. We love watching these series with so many episodes cause we are always excited to see what is going to happen with their families next. They are also uplifting, clean and have good story lines.
Thankful to finally have our house back
in order. Finally got all the Spring/Summer
things and leftover Fall things put away,
and the house all cleaned up.
Thankful that we have most of our hurricane
preparations done. Think it will now come
over us as a Tropical storm as the path
has changed a bit. Will see, as it seems to
After the Storm
Thankful that we took our Hurricane
preparations seriously when our power
went out Wed. nite about 9:15pm, before
the storm was barely headed our way.
Thankful for reg. candles and candle holders,
LED candles, kerosene lanterns and flashlights.
They were all pressed into service. We found
that LED battery candles make great nite
lights. They were such a blessing the 4
nights we were without power.
Thankful for a early Thurs. morning text from
our Son, saying the hurricane had taken another
track going across Florida and was going out
to sea by 2 pm. on Thursday. We thought we
would be facing another whole day of rain
and winds. Even tho, we did get some it
was not nearly as bad as it would have
been had the hurricane come over us even
as a tropical storm. That thing was massive,
and the reason we had so much rain even
tho we were so far away from it.
Thankful that we slept well every night
and we were not hot at all. Which is
Amazing in and of itself.
Thankful that most days were not that
hot either cause we had so much breeze.
I have to say I was dreading our power
going out because I remember all too
well what it was like in Hurricane Charley
years ago. It it was unbelieveable hot,
muggy and miserable. But this experience
was so much better and we PTL for that!
Thankful that our whole family fared well
during the storm. Our son and we all
lost power on Wed. nite and didn't get
it back until Sunday. Scott go his back
sometime during Sat. nite, our wasn't
back till 7:30 Sunday evening. My Sister-
in-law Susan never lost power, and our
Daughter and Hubby only lost it for
about 5 hrs. or less.
Thankful that none of us had any damage
to ourselves or our homes. Only some
trees down back in our woods, and
broken limbs and yard debri for all
So Thankful to have our power back
mostly because we were having to
use a cooler, once we were finally
able to get ice, cause the first few
days there was none, and we are
def. thanful for the ice & cooler too.
Thankful for so many friends that
called to check on us, which made
us feel very loved, and we were
grateful to be able to give them
good news about our whole family.
Thankful that we were able to go
to church on Sunday, then out to
lunch with our Son and lil darling
then spend the afternoon with them
at his house since they had power.
Thankful to have been able to save most things
out of the freezer since we could put them
in my SIL Susan's freezer.
Thankful to have emptied out our
fridge before the power came back
on, so all we had to do was wipe it
out a lil so we can start putting
things back in.
Thankful for our grill which we were
able to make some dinners and some
Thankful that hubby thought to pull
our window shades in the living room
to help keep the sun out, so the house
stayed cooler............I liked the light
coming in so we could see, but it
was better to not have the Sun bring
in the heat tho.
Thankful for all the people who work
for our Power Company that work so
hard to help us all get our lights back
on....they are truly unsung heroes.
Thankful that the Lord spared my nephew
today from what could have been a fatal
car crash. He and a friend were on their
way to work and were in the turn lane
at an intersection when the light turned
green, but for some reason the driver
hesitated and all of a sudden a big log
truck full of logs flew through the inter-
section and would have T-boned them.
And Last but definitely not least,
I am thankful to the Lord for His
protection and watch care over our
Well, that is finally it for Cozy Place

the mornings, and hoping and praying
