Thankful Thursday July 7, 2022, And Flowers for YOU.

For great is his love toward us,

 and the faithfulness of the LORD

 endures forever. Praise the LORD.

Psalm 117:2 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you were able to enjoy your

Independence day, but know it was

probably hard with all the awful

4th of July happenings in so many


May the God of all comfort be with

 those precious families, that were 

involved, and that those wounded

will be completely restored.

It seems EVIL never takes a break,

and wants desperately to ruin life

for everyone it can.

Unfortunately, for now we live in a Fallen

World,  but one day, if we know Jesus, 

we will all be home with the

Father in Heaven and

as Revelation 21:4 says

‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. 

There will be no more death’ or mourning

 or crying or pain, for the old order

 of things has passed away.”

Have to say with each day that passes

that sounds better and better and I

am indeed thankful for this 

Blessed Hope!

Pictures today are of Flowers.

Thought we could all use some

natural beauty in our lives.

Now on with my Thankfuls..............


Thankful for a fun sleepover with lil darling

and having her all the next day. We got her

some new play food, so we played restaurant

a number of times throughout the day

But,  It was fun tho.


Thankful our crepe Myrtle is finally blooming

and it looks so pretty.  Hoping all the rain doesn't

completely ruin all the new blooms.


Thankful they finally finished my Daughter

and Son-in-loves mudd room the end of last

week, and the cabinets are gorgeous. Only

took 5 months (lol) but they were very patient

as hard as it was.


Thankful for playing a couple of  games of

 Skipbo, it has been years,  it used to be our go

 to Summer card game when my Daughter was

 out of school for Summer. I remembered we

really liked it, but couldnt remember how

to play it.  lol  So that was a fun blast from

the past.


Thankful that hubby was able to hook

me up to lil darlings ipod, so now we

can facetime.  She sent me a picture

last night cause she and Daddy were

doing fireworks, then she called me

this morning and we talked awhile.

Loving this......So fun!!


Thankful for a fun day at church and

then we decided to come home and

change clothes and we went shopping

for a while, then went to Outback

for an early dinner.  We just needed

a change in schedule, and we hadn't

been out for almost a week.  So it

was fun..........


Thankful for a quiet yet good day on

4th of July.  We just threw some burgers

and hotdogs on the grill, and we were

good to go.....just a lazy day, but we 

were fine with that!!  lol


Thankful that we finally got outside

early this morning to do some work

 in our back yard.  Of course, more 

to go but ya gotta start somewhere

and the improvement always helps

spur me on.


Also, thankful that I got all my decorating

 stuff put away that was cluttering up our

 guest bedroom finished, so now we can

 start moving things around in there, 

and give it a lil change up.


Thankful we got the bed moved around

 and in it's new place, and washed all the

 bedding. More to do but it will get there.

At our age it's a lot of work!!  lol

Reminds me of why we don't do this

too often...........but it is always worth

it in the end.


Thankful for a fun day with lil darling.

We made DIY stickers this week, guite

 a few of them as a matter of fact.  

If you are looking 

for a DIY project for your kids or grand

children you might want to try this, it

is pretty much with what you have on

hand already.

Here's a link to tell you how to do it.

She drew some pictures and we also

printed some pictures from the internet.

Click here

We did the first method....I have to tell

you that packing tape can be a fun, 

as sarcasm drip all over this page.  lol

but it was worth it as it made her a

happy lil girl..........lol


Thankful for dinner out at Texas

roadhouse and a quick run to the store,

at least it got us out of the house. lol

Well,  that's it for Cozy Place this week.

Thanks for droppin'  by,

Have a Lovely Lovely weekend,

Love all your thankfuls. It is heart breaking what happened here near my town on the 4th. A sweet little boy died and another 18 month old boy is now without his mommy and daddy. This evil and violence is senseless and horrible. My prayers go out to all the families. Just trying to do a traditional celebration parade with family and friends and then this act of violence. We have to pray that God will help our country heal and help those in charge of our laws make better laws regarding guns. Have a nice weekend.

Morning Kris,
Yes, it is all very heartbreaking....and yes, our country definitely needs healing, for sure,
and prayer is surely the best resource for that.
We read that one of the shooters had already threatened to kill his parents, and had other run ins with the police, and he couldn't get a gun, but his Father helped him get one......That is just so shocking to me!! I have to say I think some of these parents are just not paying attention and some are aiding their kids probably because they can never say NO to them about anything. It is really so crazy!! It's almost like saying NO in our society is just the most devastating thing a parent can do today!! I'll get off my soap box now......lol

Well, have a lovely weekend hon.....
Blessings, Nellie

Wonderful opening! I've often thought after reading the verse that when we are saved, GOD casts all our sins into the depths of the sea and remembers them no more! I pray the same occurs when we receive our new bodies and enter the New Heaven and New Earth that our fallen world and state of being will be remembered no more!!!
#1. I remember when I was very young the play kitchen I had with "all the trimmings!"
#2. Mine are too as well as my Bougainville!
#3. They have been really busy!
#4. I found my deck of cards and have been playing solitaire, my way! Ha!
#5. Wow! Another communication device!
#6. Yes, I have been enjoying 1st service!
#7. Every day is a lazy day for me, ha!
#8. I'm so glad I have Steve to do my yard. He is a blessing from GOD!
#9. I have started thinking about getting rid of the "things" I've collected over the years that I never deal with anymore.
#10. I can surely see why older seniors (like ourselves) downsize when we get older! Less to have to care for!
#11. What neat things kids have to do this day in age!
#12. I just use the drive throughs!
Love you, Susan
