Love the thought of living together with Him.
Talk about a perfect life, that will be it for sure.
Just ponder that thought!!
Hugs and Blessings,
Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Then all the people said “Amen” and “Praise the LORD.”
1 Chronicles 16:36 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope you have had a less heartbreaking
week that we have had. We know so many
folks we love who are going through so
many hard things, that at a certain point
on Wednesday, I just thought Lord please,
I can't stand to hear anymore bad news,
but God.......We took the time to pray as
we were sitting in the car waiting for lil
darling to finish her dance class, and that
made all the difference in our hearts, minds
and spirits, and our hope was vey quickly
restored. Thankful once again for the
gift of prayer...........it is one of the best
things we can do and one of the best
gifts we can give others and ourselves.
So if you happened to be feeling over
whelmed or heavy hearted for those you
love and care about.......Talk and pour out
you heart to the Lord on their behalf.
I promise you will be glad you did.
Pictures today are sort of a hodge podge
from around our home. The white roses
were my Valentine gift, and they are the
closest thing to Spring at our house
So on with my Thankful Post.....
Thankful that my friends little 5 mo. old
Granddaughter came thru open heart surgery,
but they weren't able to do the left side of her
heart, so they didn't actually close her up thinking
they might have to go back in, then they had
a scare last night they might have to put her
on life support as her Blood pressure was low,
her heart very weak, and something else and
we were all concerned when we went to bed Friday
night, as to what Sat. might bring, but she had
an amazing turnaround during the night. Her
Blood pressure normalized, her blood work perfect,
and other things that were good. Now just a
breathing tube and they felt like she was so stable
enough they could close her incision. So we are
all praising the Lord for His answers to prayer
Note: This poor lil baby now has a partially
collapsed lung and a lung infection, so if you
feel so led, please pray for baby Lila and
her Sweet parents.
Thankful to hear that a child that was on an amber
alert the other night was found. Love hearing
Our simple Valentines Table
Thankful for another answer to prayer for our friends
Son, he has bad back problems but all of a sudden
he was in more pain that he had ever experienced
before and could not walk. As of now his back
pain has lessened quite a bit, so hoping to hear
that he is up and walking soon.
Thankful to have gotten my kitchen floor done,
we have laminate in there, and it just needed
a good going over, you know like a Spring cleaning
type of cleaning. lol
Thankful to have had a few nice days this week
to sit out in the sun. Feels Wonderful....
Thankful for a great day at church and
the young Pastor I told you about last week
did the preaching today. His Father-in-love
happens to be our old Pastor from our first
25 yrs. at our church. He was in town and
came to visit, it was really great to see him.
Been a long time.
Thankful for a Special Service we had at our church this passed Sunday evening. It was a Music and Scripture reading service. All the music had scripture in it, an then lots of different people read different scriptures from the bible. It was such a blessing, and we all felt just bathed in the word of God.
Thankful that we got to talk to a young woman
who was pretty inebriated, but saw us talking
outside the restaurant and came up and spoke
to us. Clearly a divine appointment. Been
praying for her all week, and hoping she
might show up for church next week.
Thankful we got to have lil darling all day on Wed. and for a sleep over. Didn't get to have as much fun as we wanted to tho, cause she had school work to do, and dance class to go to, which were all unexpected, and then she was coming down with a cold and not feeling good part of the time, but we were are always thankful to get to see her
No matter the situation.
Thankful that a difficult situation our Daughter
and Son-in-love had going on since November
seems to finally be coming to a partial end, hopefully
next week. Then it will be on to phase 2, and
hopefully it will end a lot sooner than Phase 1. lol
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week,
Thanks for dropping by.....
Hope you have a Fantastic Friday
and a Wonderful Weekend.
Love, Hugs, and
Last of February Blessings,
I think the Lord has been showing us this since
last Wednesday when revival broke out at Asbury College
Awesome things going on in our country. I have read
that it has happened in Ohio too. I have seen on face
book that it has spread to other states, but don't know
that for sure, but I sure hope it keeps spreading.
If we ever needed a revival in our country....
it is definitely now!
Have a Hopeful and Joyful Week,
Pictures today are from our Winter Look
in the Dining area.
Thankful that our sweet neighbors
just sent over a big container of
homemade Chicken and Dumplings.
(Sunday Evening) Delicious as always.
Thankful to hear there has been a mighty
move of God that started at Asbury College
in Kentucky last Wed. during a typical
chapel service, and many other colleges
have come from other places as well.
If we ever needed a move of God in a
big way....it is now!!
Note: heard today it is still going on
and it's 9 days later. People are coming
from all over the place even from
around the world. So Amazing,
Welcome to Thankful Thursday
Hope this finds you doing well, and enjoying your
Winter months. Course, that is much easier for those
of us who live in Florida, as we get breaks from the
cold, and we don't get as cold as northern states for sure.
I would love to see some snow tho.....not live in it,
or have to shovel it tho...........lol
room, and yes, we still have our Christmas tree up,
but it's just a natural looking tree with faux snow
now. lol We left it up last Winter too, and we
just so enjoy the lights, so figured hey, why Not?
I left some things that are Christmas decorations
but if they looked like Winter to me, I left them
up. Like our fireplace.....I just took anything
red out of it, and added white and more gold to the
wreath. Have to say we have really enjoyed
it all.........and are still enjoying it. However,
I do have red in the living room.....you will see
that next week............
So on with Thankful Thursday......
Thankful for today (Thursday) Picked up lil darling
from school, had a few hours with her, then out to dinner
with hubby at Outback, and took a trip to Marshalls.
Thankful to hear from our young family whose Mom
had the psychiatric issues on Friday, She is doing well,
they have found a wonderful Christian place for her treat-
ment, and they are slowly weaning her off meds that the
hospital put her on, so they can make sure they are
making the right diagnosis. So if you feel so led please
pray for wisdom for her Drs. and counselors.
Thankful to hear on Sat. that they finally shot
down that unmanned Chinese spy balloon that entered
our airspace and floated all the way across our
country for days.
Thankful for seeing a number of Red Cardinals
and Robin Redbreast Birds in our yard in the
passed week or so. Makes me think Spring is
just around the corner maybe.
Thankful for a good day at church, talked to
some new people, and went out to lunch with
hubby at Carrabbas.
Thankful for Lactaid products, I have
lactose intolerance and drink their milk all
the time, but take the pills when I need to
for other stuff.
Thankful that we have found some other things we
can make in our air fryer that we got for Christmas.
Made some broccoli (It was nice and crispy and
we both really liked it) chicken tenders, and my
hubbies favorite, Jalapeno Poppers. We had
kind of forgotten about it.....lol
Also made some Asparagus, it was great too.
Thankful to have finished 3 Valentines today
(Monday), and working on some more.
Thankful for the Lord's direction about a physical issue
I have had most of my life, but has gotten worse with age.
Thankful for "Sugar Bomb" grape tomatoes.
They are the best grape tomato. So tasty and
just loved to eat them all by themselves.
Thankful for getting to spend a fun night with
our sweet neighbors. I made brownies and had
them over for brownie Sundae's, it was easy and
a lot of fun. Keeping it simple works the best.
Thankful for the gift of laughter....how would
we ever make it through life. Sometimes things
or situations are just so ridiculous you just have
to laugh. God's word says Laughter is
good medicine, I have to agree heartily.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
Thanks for coming by
Hope you have a Wonderful rest of the week.
May you have a light filled day, Hugs, Nellie
