Romans 15:13 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope you have had a lovely week. We have, and
we are happy to see we are cooling off a lil bit
here in Florida in the evenings and early morn.
Still in the mid to upper 80's, but we will
take what we can get. lol
Pictures today are more Fall decorating for 2023,
So this is part 3.
So on with my Thankfuls......
#1 and 2
Thankful for a lovely dinner out with our neighbors
at Long Horn steak house, and they even treated us
Thankful for this sweet couple, they are the best
neighbors and friends. They are the ones that
bring us that delicious veggie soup every so often.
Love them so much!!
Thankful for a good school day with lil darling.
She had a lot to do today,... and got everything
done we could and will finish on Monday, we
were all pretty tired at the end of the day. lol
A good tired tho.............
Thankful that when our power went out just
as it was getting dark on Monday evening,
that all our candles that are battery operated
and timed had just turned themselves on,
so we were not in the dark or having to
scramble to find things. Another great
reason for us to love them, they are very
useful as well.
Thankful that we got to work outside again
on Saturday, and pretty much finished up
all our bushes. Just need to do my rose bush
and fertilize it next time.
Thankful for a great day at church, we had a
special guest this morning that we all love.
He usually comes once a year....his name is
Marquis Laughlin, and he does a dramatic
recitation of the scripture. He is doing the
book of "Revelation" this year. It was awesome,
plan to go back to night to see the other half.
He just makes the scriptures come alive for us.
Thankful our friend with the broken kneecap
was able to be at church today and we were
actually able to go out to lunch with them.
It was great and she looks great, still in
recovery tho, but coming along well, but
still having trouble sleeping cause of pain.
It was so nice to be able to spend some
time with them.
Thankful to recognize and see a young man
who went to our church growing up 20 yrs.
or more ago. He looks almost the same as
he did as a kid, but is 40 yrs. old now.
He is such a wonderful young man, he
is married and has 4 girls, and he said
they were all angels. He was always a
great kid back then, and seems to be the
same now..... It was lovely to see him.
He was was involved in the youth group
and stuff with our kids as well.
Thankful we had another good school day with
lil darling and we got everything done, even
what was leftover from last Friday, so had
time to have some fun.....she wanted to learn
to make a card, so had time to work on
that too, and she did so well.
Thankful that we got to see a kid who grew
up in our church and who has been acting
as a Youth Pastor in our church for a couple
of years now, as he was finishing up his schooling
......He was Ordained as a Pastor Tuesday night.
We are so proud of he and his wife (she grew
up in our church too), She is our previous
Pastors daughter, and they have 3 lovely
children. It was a really good service, and
a time of fellowship after to congratulate
all the men who were ordained as well,
there were 12 of them, and they will be
at a number of different churches in
the Southeaster district.
Thankful for a great conversation we had
with one of the Pastors who attended from
Tampa. He told us this wonderful testimony
about his neice, who is also the churches
Worship leader. He rec'd a call from her
husband via voice mail) that she was in the
hospital and was in ICU. in very serious
condition, so the first thing he did was call
his prayer team and then went to the hospital.
She had blood in her lungs, her kidneys, stomach
and one other place can't remember, anyway
she was also put on a respirator. it turned out
to be severe Lupus attack. Anyway, she came
out of it and was taken off the respirator,
but they said she would need to be in the
hospital longer and have to have dialysis
the rest of her life, people continued to pray
and the next day she got out of the hospital
and was 100% with no further problems
and no dialysis, and has been fine every since.
Praise the Lord, God is still in the miracle
business..........Love hearing these stories.
Thankful that even tho lil darling got up
not feeling well and had very large swollen
tonsils......Mom took her to Dr. and she did
not have Strep throat and even tho her
throat hurt she wasn't feeling bad otherwise.
Well, that's it for Cozy place this week
Glad you came for a visit
Hope you have a Terrific Thursday
and rest of the week.
Love, Hugs and
Mid September Blessings,
