You are my strength, I sing praise to you;
you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.
Psalm 59:17 NIV
Welcome to Thankful Thursday
Hope if you were in the Hurricane area of Florida
that you faired well. Our Hearts and Prayers are with
those that were not so fortunate. Have to say yesterday
was a very long day.....
as the hurricane hit Florida at around 8 a.m. and all
our family here... were fine, but then we had to wait
until the middle of the night to find out how our
Daughter and Son-in-love did.....they were fine all
day, some rain, and mostly pretty windy, towards
evening they lost their power for awhile, but the
Power Co. was able to restore it fairly quick, which
was amazing since it was so windy (they are on a
Fire Station grid, so that's why, (They are never
without power for too long). We got our last text
at 3a.m and they said all was still fine. PTL.
Pictures today are saying Good bye Summer decor,
Cause, Lord willing, we plan to start our Fall
decorating hopefully, as soon as it turns September,
which I might add is tomorrow!!
So we can at least pretend it is Fall .....
inside the house. lol
Thankful that we decided to make a few changes
to our schedule and that it is working much
better for us. Isn't it crazy how we just do things
but don't put a lot of thought into it, but then when
you do start thinking about it......just a few
tweaks can make a whole lot of difference.
Love it.....think smarter, not harder!!
Thankful for 2 really good day schooling with
lil darling on Friday and Monday, and just
having time with her........we have been doing some
exercise videos together....which is nice.
#3 and 4
Thankful for Kirk Cameron and his influence and leadership. Thankful that TBN had a 2-3 hours long Special on Homeschooling that was excellent and so encouraging.
Thankful that our Daughter and Son-in-love
got back home safe and sound and had a great time
at the Lake House with his parents.
Thankful that our Beauty Berries are blooming
and changing from green to purple. That is the
most heavenly shade of purple I have ever seen!
Thankful our lil bunny has been visiting us a lot
this week, sometimes twice a day even, which is
all highly unusual. I think this is about the
5th day now.
Thankful for take out from Tijuana flats.
Thankful for a clean refrigerator.....
Thankful I still have an ironing board and iron,
cause every so often I still have to drag it out
to iron something, cause usually our steamer will
do the trick. But then there is linen fabric.....lol
and I am just not into the wrinkled look!!
Thankful for a great Sunday....Church, then we
went to visit our friend recovering from the broken
knee cap, out to lunch at Carrabbas's, then a quick
trip to Publix, home to rest for about an hour,
then back to church for a special fellowship for our
Visitation Pastor who is retiring from that
position, but is staying on at our church and will
just be serving in other ways, just not in a paid
capacity. Got home just in time to watch one of
our favorite Pastors on TV, Robert Morris.
Been a good day, talking to lots of people we love.
Thankful the Hurricane Idalia went from a Cat 3
down to a Tropical Storm by the time it hit SC,
where our Daughter and Son-in-law live. There
was possibility of it being a Cat 2 when it reached them,
but by late afternoon downgraded to a Cat 1, but
then further downgraded to a Tropical Storm
before it hit.
Well, that's all folks.....
Thanks for dropping by
Glad to have you here, and
hope you have a great first week
Love, Hugs and
