Thankful Thursday February 24, 2022, A Spring vignette from the past
David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, “Praise be to you, LORD, the God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting.
1 Chronicles 29:10 NIV
Good Morning Sweet Friends,
How are you this fine day! Looks like
it is gonna be a beautiful sunny day
out there. We are feeling like Spring
already/Summer.....going to 85 today.
Too early for those temps for me,
but hoping maybe it will warm up
some for you sweet folks up north
who are freezing or just plain
sick of the cold weather.
Pictures today are from a Spring
Vignette from the past. Planned
to show you Our Winter decor,
but never got to take any pictures
as it has been and will continue
to be a very busy week here.
We are in birthday mode over
here. 3 birthdays within a week.
So on with my Thankfuls..................
Thankful that we found what we hope is a fix
for our Corian Acrylic kitchen sink. We have
loved it cause it has always been so easy to
clean and always look nice, but in the past
weeks, I find that the bottom of the sink, just
gets so stained up and doesn't come very clean
when I fill it with water and dish soap and
let it sit awhile like they tell you to. So did
a little research online, and read where the
best sink polish for it was something called
"Nu" car polish, so cleaned it good and put
on the polish and it mostly looks good but
the bottom where it gets dirtiest is dull, so
I put 4 coats of polish on the bottom only,
Even tho it is duller than it used to be it
looks great and is so clean, so hoping this
keeps it looking nice for awhile at least.
Worst case scenario we get a new sink
if it doesn't work.....figured it was worth a
Note: It's been about 4 days and the
sink is still functioning and looking
like new again
Thankful for a quick yet lovely time with
our Daughter most of the day, and with
our Son who was able to join us in the
evening. Was sad to see her go this
morning, but definitely grateful that we
got to see her even if for a lil while.
Thankful that she had a great time
too, with some of her friends the day
Thankful that our Daughter made the
trip here and back home to SC
safe and sound.
Thankful for another reprieve from
injury, as something fell on my hand
and it really hurt, but Praise the Lord
for no broken bones.
Thankful that I finished my Grand-
daughter's birthday card, as her birthday
is just around the corner. Now gotta
figure out what to get her! lol
Note: thankful that is all taken care
of now too. Yay!!
Thankful for God's quick answer
to prayer. We had a lil medical scare
with my hubby on Sunday, but praise
the Lord, by the next day he was fine,
and has been every since.
#8, 9, 10, 11 and 12
Thankful that we were able to complete
the renewal of our drivers licenses. The
line was tremendously long, we were
thinking it would probably be 2-3 hrs.
It was 2 hrs. once we got to the check
in window, and we had their letter
which tells you what to bring and we
thought we had everything, but because
my drivers license has my first, then
maiden name and then married name,
(Which the DMV wrote it that way,
51 yrs. ago, when I got married)
I had to have my marriage certificate,
and they wanted proof of my residency,
and my passport. I was just in disbelief.......
We have been married for 51 yrs. and
this is only the 2nd time I have been
asked for our marriage certificate, in
all these years, and that was only
4 yrs. ago when hubbies Company
had to have it for Insurance purposes,
.which was shocking then.
Anywho, I had to go home to get our
marriage certificate, my passport(which
is really old), and some paperwork that
showed my residency.
I am thankful that the lovely lady at
the check-in allowed me to do that,
as I had visions of having to stand
in that line all over again on another
day, and thankful for how the Lord
goes before us and prepares things.
Had hubbies Ins. not asked for that
marriage certificate we would never
have realized we didn't have one,
evidently we never got one and
didn't even know we were supposed
to get one, I guess, so we had to
send off for it, 4 yrs. ago, so if that
had not happened I would not have
had one for yesterday, also wasn't
sure if I even still had my passport
cause it was so old, and thankful
the Lord helped me find it, and also
there was something else I wouldn't
have know if hubby and I hadn't talked
about it the night before, so just amazing
how the Lord had prepared the way.
Both of the DMV employees were so
nice which was really so appreciated,
and Thankful that 4 hrs. later we
walked out as licensed Florida
Driver's once again. Have to say,
I am not looking forward to going
back in 8 years. It was quite a day!
However, I do love how the Lord lets
us go through things, so He can teach
us things, I was reminded once again
of God's watch care over me, and of
how He is able to go before us, help
us find things, and just how much
He really does have my back and
how He can take care of us. These
things just help to make our faith
in Him more solid.
Just realized this situation really goes
along with the verse in the vignette below!
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
Thanks for coming by,
Hope you have a Wonderful rest
of the week.
Love, Hugs, and
end of February Blessings,

Good Sunday Morning
Here is the verse for the day!
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
Note: Just in case someone might
wonder what "fear" means. it is a
profound reverence and awe
Have a Blessed day

Thankful Thursday February 17, 2022, A Valentines table for 2 from the past

Here are the verses for today!
Actually these verses are a continuation
from the verses from last week.
(Click here, if you want to see them.)
They are part of the recipe for Peace, as well.
Now that we know what to do to stop
the worrying, what do we do to keep
the worry away. We practice thinking
about things that are true, pure, lovely,
admirable, excellent or praiseworthy.
Pass these along in our minds, and
in our conversation. Look for all those
things, search for them if you have to
.as they will not just help your worry
but also lead you to a life of gratitude
as well. It's all a matter of focus,
where do we focus are attention, even
tho bad things happen and we all have
them or know about them, we can
choose to focus on the good things we
know are happening around us, and
on the good things God tells us about
in scripture. I truly believe God tells
us to do these things because since He
created us, HE knows exactly what will
help us, so think it is more than just because
HE wants us to do them, cause HE says so.
So I would say give it a try, you want be
instantly worry less, but with each thing
you try you will be less worried and it
just gets better and better. Hopefully,
this will turn out to be a Valentine's
Gift from God to someone!

Thankful Thursday February 10, 2022, Livingroom/Valentine's decor for 2022
Thankful for more cards I finished
for our shop. Still working on 2 for
the family, then I am taking a break.
Thankful that I saw a little brown bunny
early this morning running across our
backyard and stopping to eat some
asparagus fern. Not sure if he is "Coco"
or not, but hoping it is, cause we haven't
seen him for 3-4 months, and thought
maybe a cat got him or something.
Lil darling will be thrilled!
Note: She was, and actually got to
see him today (Friday) while she
Thankful for a lovely day at church,
I think the break from preaching in Jan.
was really good for our Pastor cause he
was so funny today. I told him when he
retires he might want to become a comic.
Thankful for lunch out with our friends
to Cracker Barrel. It was so good to see
them as it has been quite a long while
since we have seen them, as they were sick,
then we were sick......Crazzzzzy!
Thankful that the Lord protected
me from a fall while in the grocery
store. It was like I just slide and
thought I would fall but I stopped
without even losing my balance.
Looked at my the bottom of my shoes,
which were heels, and have no idea what
caused it, but sure know who stopped it.
Thankful for Cuban food that I made
for dinner. Yummy Picadillo and yellow
rice and black beans. Been awhile and
it was so good if I do say so myself.
Black Beans and Yellow rice recipe here
In case you would like to try it.
Thankful that I happened on some
information about 2 search engines
where you don't have to worry about
anything being deleted, hidden or
removed because it doesn't meet with
their community standards.
They are "Duck Duck Go" and "Brave",
and they are Free cost wise. Haven't
tried the Brave yet tho.
Thankful that one of my Daughters
friends whose 80+ yr. old Mom has
Covid and wound up having to go to
the hospital and is in ICU is showing
good signs of progress, so hoping to
hear more good news today. She has
had many people praying for her.
Note: She is still in ICU but they
are weaning her off the oxygen, so
definitely headed in the right direction.
Note: Just heard from my Daughter,
her friend's Mom is doing much
better and will be moving to rehab
Thankful for a nice clean house, we have
sort of been doing a little Spring cleaning,
and getting some things put away that
have needed to be done since Christmas,
but with being sick and all just didn't
happen, so thankful for having
that done finally.
Thankful that we were able to get
lil darling from school and have a
sleepover since her Dad was out of
town for work. We played awhile
then went to Olive Garden for din
din. Then went to Publix and got
some dessert. Hubby got a pc. of Red
Velvet cake and we got a Fun Fetti
bar cake and it was so good. When we
got home we got into our jamies and
got comfy and watched a few episodes
of the Christmas cookie challenge, while
we ate our cake, then it was off to
beddie bye land!! lol
Note: I kept one small pc. of cake and
sent the rest home with lil darling. Trying
not to get back into bads habits. lol
Thankful for a fun Friday with lil
darling. We did school work, but
managed to have some time to play
as well before Dad came to get her
earlier than normal.
Thankful that our Son had an uneventful
and safe business trip going and coming!
Well, That's it for Cozy Place this week.

Always nice to know you came by.
Have a Super Duper Weekend!
