Just what I need!

Last weekend I was watching a movie about a girl that was celebrating her 16 birthday. She and her mother had been on their own for her whole life. Apparently there was some secret about the relationship between her father and her mother before she was born. We find out at the end that his family broke up the relationship. Anyway this movie was about how this girl took off to find her father and build a relationship with him. Turns out he was a Lord something or other in England....more

Jesus' Love

 The last several weeks I have been sitting in on a discipleship class Pastor Rita has been teaching. We were going over the lesson on Baptism. We were talking about being immersed. Rita shared that when it came time to be baptized for Rita and her husband Pastor James she made James go first. Seems Rita has an aversion to the idea of being dunked under water. She is not afraid of water because she rides the jet skies all the time. She shared it was because of the life jacket. She is not afraid when she has her life jacket on....more

It's 2014 - happy New Year!

It is a new year – time for a fresh start! A chance to take stock of what happened last year and what you are looking forward to this year.I decided to make some lists – things I learned last year- things I want to learn this year and a list of things I want to work on this year. I am not really making new year resolutions because I want God to make the changes in me and to lead me where He wants my life to be. So one of the areas I will be working on and spending more time developing is a deeper prayer life with my Father God! Things I learned last year - ...more

Merry Christmas!

I wanted to stop here for a moment and wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I realize this day is really almost over but still – I hope you had a chance to spend time with your family and friends and had an enjoyable day. That is exactly what I did. And I am looking forward to seeing my very dear friend Janie and her husband Craig on Saturday evening -that will make the holiday season complete! ...more

The Holiday Season has Begun!

Here we are the tail end of the Thanksgiving holiday. The serious shopping has begun. Black Friday has come and gone and we are only hours away from the best shopping on line day tomorrow. Is this really what we have come to for Christmas? Some stores and businesses have even stopped saying Merry Christmas and have opted for the politically correct Happy Holidays! Not for me I am a Merry Christmas kind of girl and do not see that changing in the future – near or far! ...more

Blessings for Me!

This weekend has been one of many blessings – well actually all week has been.  My birthday was Tuesday the 3rd and your birthday is always a good day.  With all the well wishes from your friends and family how can it not be?  Thursday I had an appointment that turned out to be a blessing (more on that later) and then Friday was the biggest day of all (again more on that later!). ...more

DIY Fever even here!

So here we are in the middle of August already!  This is normally the hottest part of the year here in Green Country – late July, August and most of September.  And this year is turning out to be pretty much normal- as in 90 to 100 degree afternoons with not much breeze.  We have had several rainy episodes and we won’t even mention the amount of severe weather we have had.  The folks inMooreare still working on recovering from the tornados that caused such havoc to that area of our fair state.  We (me and the mouse in my pocket along with several friends and family)...more
