always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:20 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you well and hopeful
in your faith in God today, given the
crazy things that have happened to
our 45th President this week.
We give thanks for that even tho
we don't feel like it, but just because
the Lord tells us to.............we have to
remember that the Lord knew this
was gonna happen and HE has a
reason for it, that we might not ever
understand this side of Heaven.
So be encouraged that the Lord
knows what HE is doing!

Now on with my Thankfuls.....
Thankful for dinner out at Carabba's with
my hubby, and leftovers for din din
tomorrow night. Just need to make a salad!
Works for me
Thankful we got our new night stands,
and they were in good shape this time,
at least the first one is that hubby put
together. We will do the other one on
Monday. Thankful we like them and
Thankful they came earlier than expected
too. So that was a nice unexpected
Note: He put the other one together
today and it was in good shape as
well and they look nice in the guest
room, Just working on styling them
now, since I decided not to put the
lamps on them this time. Still doing
work in there, but we are a lil but
further than we were.
When we are done I will show you
Thankful for 1/2 pd. hamburgers
we grill made from grassfed beef.
They are so filling and delicious.
Thankful for pretty fonts, like this one
I am using to write this post with....
I think they just add so much to
whatever you are doing!
Thankful for a good Sunday at church
and a fun time out to lunch with our
friends to Perkins. It has been about
a month since we have been able
to go out with them.........
so was very nice!
Thankful for "Perkins" new breakfast
item called "Cinnamon Bun Waffles"
It was really great, and comes with
eggs and bacon. I might just want
to go back next Sunday.....lol
Thankful for a couple that has recently
come back to our church after 20 yrs.
They were wounded emotionally and
spiritually, and we are so glad they
came back home to heal.
Their countenance has gotten better
every week now, and this was their
3rd week. They needed to be some-
where that people can love on them,
and our church is that place.
Thankful that awhile back I found
a copy cat recipe for Olive Gardens
Chicken Gnocchi Soup. We both like
it, but hubby really loves it. Then we
were in the grocery store recently and
found they had the gnocchi in a pack-
age and all you had to do was cook it
for a few minutes. Anyway, I decided
to make it today (Monday) and have
to say, I am thankful it came out really
great, if I do say so myself, hubs had
2 bowls, so he definitely was happy
with it, and so was I. Here is a link
to the recipe I found if you would like
to check it out. Click Here.
Thankful for my childhood, life long
friend LaNeta. Today is her 70th
Birthday. My family moved next
door to her family when I was just
6yrs old, and she and I became
fast friends, and were pretty much
inseparable and her Mom was like
a 2nd Mom to me, and they took
me to church with them, and they are
the #1 reason I am a believer today
because I saw Jesus in them.
I've heard it said to preach the
gospel wherever you go and if
necessary use words. They rarely
used words they just loved me
and lived their lives following
the Lord, and I saw it and knew
it was because of God and wanted
what they had.
Thankful for God's word the Bible,
and am especially thankful for the
book of psalms lately, as it is just
so comforting to read and be
reminded of who God is.....
Thankful for God's peace during these
turbulent times in which we are living.
Thankful for a nice cool shower
after working in the yard.
Feels like Heaven!!
Well, that's it for Cozy Place
Happy you could stop by
Hope you have a truly Blessed
Love, Hugs, and
First of August Blessings,
