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

try anyway..................

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,

  1. I always enjoy your thankful Thursday thoughts, Nellie, I agree God is always looking after us, I have many testimonies of his faithfulness to me/us! What a wonderful verse you have shared! I am happy your dh is well, and that there was no injury for you, so many times I have had accidents that could have been bad, but God was always there!
    How awesome you both got your licenses renewed even though there was a little hiccup! ~smile~ I do not look forward to getting mine renewed, but am so thankful I can still drive.
    Saying good by to loved ones especially children and grandchildren is always so hard!

    I haven't blogged in a while, it seems I stay so busy, our daughter is getting married in April, happy happy for them! I am also busy planning my garden1 Hope you have a great weekend.

  2. Hi Sue,
    It was so lovely to hear from you hon. Yes, the Lord is so good to remind us often of his wonderful care for us. Yes, we were singing the Halleleujan chorus as we left the DMV for sure, and very happy I can still drive as well, altho, don't get much opportunity cause my hubby is always "Driving Miss Nellie", as he says!! lol

    Yea, it is so hard saying good bye to our loved ones....glad that when we get to heaven we will have all eternity to spend with them, and never have to say good bye again.

    Congratulations on your Daughters coming wedding, such an exciting time for all of you. Enjoy planting your garden. Thanks for coming by and for all your encouraging and confirming comments. Hope you have a lovely lovely weekend!
    Blessings Galore, Nellie

  3. Love your thankful list. Glad you had such a good time with your daughter even if only for a short time. Also glad you did not break any bones in your hand. I am sure that hurt. Happy Friday. Have a good weekend. xoxo Kris

  4. Morning Kris,
    Thanks for coming by and for your sweet encouragement and well wishes for me. Hope you are having a good weekend so far and Happy Saturday to you.
    Blessings, Nellie

  5. #1. We are forever in cleaning mode, ha!
    #2. So glad you both were able to spend time together!
    #3. Good for her!
    #4. It's always a relief to know loved ones have gotten home safely. Praise our LORD for His protection!
    #5. Thank our LORD! It was the same for me some time ago when I jammed my little toe!!!
    #6. Joy, joy, joy when we get things done!!!
    #7. Yes, praise our LORD indeed for His healing and blessing!
    #8-#12. I pray they keep this info in their database!!! In doing so, all you should need next time is just your present driver's license!!!
    Love you, Susan

  6. Morning Susan,
    Yea, cleaning is what it is.....and has to be done.
    The way the fellow did my license this time with my middle name rather than using my maiden name, should prevent that from ever happening again, so hoping he is right. He explained that my maiden names was what created the problem, as now they want you to prove how you got from your maiden name to your married name.
    Well, thanks for coming by,
    Love, Nellie

  7. Your week sounds like our last week of January---3 birthdays in a 5-day period. And then 2 1/2 weeks later, it's another birthday and our anniversary.

    What a blessing that Dee was able to come for a visit. I'm glad she lives closes enough to drive down. Makes it easier than a flight across the country.

    So glad you and Jim are both well and that your injury and his health scare weren't serious.

    Oh, the DMV. Don't we all hate going there! I haven't had to go in several years, and my license doesn't expire until 2024, so I don't need to go anytime soon. I do, though, need to get a passport, as if I don't, I won't be able to get on a plane after October. But to get a passport, I am able to make an appointment at the passport office. No need to stand in line for hours.

    Yeah, 85 is a little too hot for me. Actually, it's too hot for me even in the middle of summer, but certainly in spring, it's too hot. But I AM growing weary of the upper 30's. I'm ready for some 60's and sunshine.

    Well, have a lovely day.


  8. Hi Patti,
    Yea it does, and then 3 weeks later is my birthday!! Our Anniversary comes 3 days after
    Scotts birthday in November, l0l So it's another busy month with Thanksgiving and then
    the start of the Christmas season.

    Yea, Dee always drive down, cause at least half of that time or longer she would be in the
    airport anyway.
    Thanks yea we are both doing well, and after that day he has never had any other issues. PTL

    Glad you can do an appt. for a passport. Why would you not be able to get on a plane after October?? So you have a star on your drivers license? I didn't have one, but I do know that has something to do with all this new security stuff...the DMV guy said without it I couldn't even take a bus anywhere, and I had no idea.

    Yea, our spring is warmer than usual so far, but our nights are still cool, thank heavens.
    Hope you get some sunshine and warmer weather real soon. Have a great rest of the week hon.

    Love and Blessings,


Special thanks to all who take the time to leave comments..........They are very encouraging and very appreciated. I enjoy every one of them so much!!
May the Lord Bless You!!
