Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
Colossians 4:2 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends, and
Welcome to Fall Yall.....
Course, I know blogland has been looking
like Fall for a long time now, but it is now
officially here!! lol
Hope you have had a good week, ours has
been good, have pretty much been doing
our Fall decorating, and am happy to report
it is done, just gotta pack the leftovers
and get it off our dining room table and
out to the garage. Yea!!
Now we can just enjoy it all.....
Pictures today are from another Fall past.
Hopefully next week, I will have some
from this year!
So on with my Thankfuls.....
Thankful to get to see lil darling for a few hours
today, and then after she left, we went to the "At
Home" store to return something and to look at
mirrors, cause I would like a new one for our
guest bedroom we are still working on. then
we went to dinner at Longhorns, and came home
and watched the newest episode of " Chesapeake
shores", It was a nice, fun and Blessed day!
Thankful for how the Lord shows me where things
are whent I can't find them. I will ask the Lord where
something is, and to please show me, and it want
be too long until he will............love that!!
Thankful that I have pretty much finished decorating
our family room. Just need to finish the mantel and
now that the Lord showed me where my magnolia
vine is.........I can do that tomorrow hopefully. lol
Note: I am finally finished as of today (Thursday)
Just have to pack it all away now.
Thankful that we could be at church this week,
since it had been 3 weeks, and we finally got to
go out with our friends for lunch, as it has been
probably 2 month, due to both our schedules.
Thankful for the ways the Lord encourages us
in His word, and through other people.
Thankful I had a situation where I sent a lady
one of our cards, and she was just so genuinely
delighted by it. It was just so nice to have that
incite and encouragement.
Thankful to have the opportunity to be an
encouragement to a family we have known
for years. Brought much Joy to our hearts.
Thankful that our friends new grandbaby
is okay, she was having some breathing
difficulties and had to go to the emergency
room and even got air-lifted to another
hospital. Fortunately, they could give her
meds, as she was getting fluid in her lungs
because of the hole in her heart, which
will probably need surgery once she gains
Note: for those of you who are praying
for her, please keep praying, cause the
Lord can still heal that heart. Also pray
that she can gain some weight, as she
is back to her birth weight.
Thankful that our friend came thru a heart
procedure and is doing well. It was a risky
procedure and praying it does what they
are hoping it will. He is home now and
Thankful for the gift of creativity that God
gives to each of us. There are so many ways
of being creative: Right now, my canvas is
decorating my home and my cardmaking.
They both bring me Joy!! If you aren't
using your creative skills in any way, you
are probably missing out on some JOY!!
Thankful for a long time girl friend and
her hubby. Today is her birthday.
Happy Birthday Vicki!!
Thankful for my late Paternal Grandmother
whom I was named after. Today is her birthday
as well, and she has been in heaven with
Jesus for about 33 yrs. now. She was always
so good to me, so sure look forward to
seeing her in heaven.
Thankful for a new song we heard this week
that we had never heard before by a fellow
named Jordan Feliz. The song is called
"Jesus is coming back". Love it!!
Click here to hear it.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
Happy you could come by for a visit.
Hope you have a Terrific Thursday
a Warm and Wonderful Weekend,
Love, Hugs and
Mid September Blessings,

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
since as members of one body you were
called to peace. And be thankful.
Colossians 3:15 NIV
Welcome to September
Yea, I know I am really late......on the beginning
of September and on Thankful Thursday, but we
were away enjoying our Daughter, her hubby,
and Grandson DOG, in Charleston. Just got
home on Monday evening, so have just decided
to combine last weeks Thankful Thursday and
this weeks since I would be posting it so late.
Hope this finds you all well and looking forward
to the official date of Fall. Once we get unpacked
I will get started in on my Fall Decorating.
Am looking really looking forward to it.
Pictures today are of Fall flowers, compliments
of Unsplash. Since we are in September I am
finally in the mood. I know many of you have
been decorating for Fall for a while now. It is
still in the 90's, so no feel of Fall here, so will
have to create some inside the house at least! lol
Thankful for a sweet guesture from our neighbor who is
home recovering from knee replacement surgery and is
doing quite well I might add. Our yard refuse people
usually come before we get up.....but today they didn't.
Hubby needed to mow early as we are suppose to have
rain later but was reluctant to start cause of all the
yard trash we had on part of our lawn, but he decided
to just do the biggest portion of it and then stop is he
needed to.......so he began mowing and our neighbor
took an empty can he had and put some of our stuff
in it and took a trash bag and the can from our
yard and put it on his swale, so hubby could mow our
whole yard...........how thoughtful was that!!
Thankful for a good day with lil darling who is now in
the 4th grade. We had a good day having her fav
breakfast and doing her schooling, and having lunch
and taking a break to rest while watching the
Christmas Cookie Challenge (she loves that) and
then finishing up her last subject of the day and
we were now free to play "Clucky's To Go" . A
pretend take out restaurant. Her Dad came early
to get her, and we had just set up Clucky's so we
all played and placed food orders for awhile and
then it was time for them to go home.
Productive and fun day!
Thankful that we are pretty much packed and
ready to be off to our Daughter and Son-in-loves
in South Carolina on Saturday. So looking forward
to it, as we have not seen them since the end of May,
and it will be nice to have a change of scenery and
schedule for a short while.
Thankful for a safe and uneventful trip to SC,
no bad traffic and no detours this time.
Thankful for the great time we are having with
the kids. We just so enjoy each others company,
and have great conversations. Love that!!
Thankful for a fun day out shopping and to dinner
to celebrate Dee's belated birthday. Her hubby got
her a "nothing bundt cake" in lemon /Raspberry
for dessert. It was delectable. Never had one
before or even heard of it. Something new!!
Thankful that my friends daughter brought her
sweet baby girl into the world with no labor
or delivery problems, but the baby has Down's
Syndrome, has a hearing problem in one ear,
and even tho her heart has healed a great deal
before her birth (so she didn't need surgery right
after birth), Drs. say she will still need surgery
in 3-6 months. Please if you feel so led please
pray with us that she will never need the
surgery and that God would touch her ear.
Thankful for this sweet young couple who were told that
this was the possibility for their baby she was carrying,
but chose to do what they knew in their heart was right.
They are to be applauded, as they could have taken
what most would have thought, as the easy way out.
Both Mom and Dad have a great attitude.
Also, thankful her Mom was able to go help out
for a week as they also have another lil girl
who is almost 2 yrs. old.
Thankful for a fun day in the pool, no rain,
dinner at (Dee and Jerrys) home and
a good game of Yahtze.
Thankful our daughter made us her lovely
cream cheese coffee cake with strawberries,
we lovvvvvvvvvve it. We have thought of
making it ourselves but then we would not
look so forward to it when we come see
her!! lol She makes a great quiche as well.
Thankful for a number of fun filled relaxing
days in the pool with lovely weather. We
did have some rainy days, but most did not
last long thankfully, but were just cloudy,
so we didn't get sun burned..... lol
Thankful Dee and I got to have some bonding time
playing cards, and doing some facials while the guys
got to bond over football and battle bots.
Thankful for all the good food and good restaurants
we enjoyed while there.
Thankful for a nice long golf cart ride, just she
and I......we always enjoy that. Can't believe all
the houses they are building or renovating in
her area. All Beautiful.....
It is such a charming neighborhood,
so many different styles of homes.
Thankful for brownie sundae's we made twice,
It's another one of our fav things to do when
we are together.
Thankful for the change of scenery and the
break from social media, it was good for us.
Thankful for a trip to the Vintage market,
one of the places we always like to go too.
Very cool place, but we didn't see anything
calling our name this time, but we had
Thankful to be back in my own bed, not that I
had any trouble sleeping or anything cause I
didn't but just always good to be home, even
tho their house is like a 2nd home to us.
Thankful my friends new granddaughter is
eating and doing well, they were having some
difficulties there for a few days, also they had
a trip to the emergency room because the
babies was jaundiced and her billy rubin
count was high, so they had to keep her over
night to put her under those lights for that,
but she has been fine every since.
Thankful we were not on the part of I-95
that had the flooding or we would have been
stuck for who know how long.
Thankful to be all unpacked and settled in again!
and looking forward to seeing lil darling.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week,
and last week.
Thankful you could stop by ......
So what are you Thankful for??
Would love for you to share with us.
