A New Song

Being patient and waiting can be so hard at times.
When life isn't going exactly like we want it to.
Low days that causes us to stop and consider what 
is or isn't 'just right' . When we rush into making
choices or decisions instead of considering the
consequences. Most of us can relate to this. I certainly can.

Psalm 40:1-5 tells us of a time in Davids life when he was depressed and at a low place, when he needed rescuing.
Verse 1
"I waited patiently for the Lord, and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry".

Waiting patiently isn't easy, especially for me. I like to ''get things done'' when I think they should be--but maybe that isn't the right timing!  My Lord is patient and many times in my life he's waited for me to realize this. When I wait for His directions then it begins to unfold and life gets better. I am at this place now waiting for His timing!
verse :17
"I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh on me
thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

The last 6 weeks has been hard in our life,
making decisions that will change our lifestyle,
waiting and praying over each one and still 
waiting for it all to come about.
God has put 'A New Song' in my heart and on my lips.

"I Want my Lord to be Satisfied with me"

One glorious day Jesus came and made me whole
He completely then satisfied my soul.
Now as I face lifes dark troubled stormy sea.
I wonder if He is satisfied with me.

I'm satisfied with God's great redemption plan.
I'm satisfied it's sufficient for all man.
I'm satisfied with his work at Calvary,
but is my Lord satisfied with me.

Lord give me strength, give me courage, make me
That I may lead some lost sheep into the fold.
That I might stand unafraid to move for thee. 
That you might be fully satisfied with me.


I want my Lord to be satisfied with me.
I want my life to be what He'd have it be.
And when I come to that great eternity 
His smile will say that He is satisfied with me.

As I wait for the next chapter of our life to begin I pray "God's Will be done".

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Did you Know?

Did you know that you can delete your blog and then come back 2 months later and undelete it!
 Like the butterfly that changes from a cocoon into a thing of beauty, I fill so blessed to be able to come back again.  I have missed each and everyone of you, even though I did try to visit as many blogs as I could and keep up with what was going on with you through Google Plus.

There have been so much going on in my life since I last posted.
My daughters, granddaughters and I went on our annual girls retreat.
Went to a nearby Festival!

 Wanted this sign but talked myself out of buying it!
My Grandkids are "The Best and Cutest"

We went to Pine Mountain for the weekend.
Had a great time.


Went to a fall festival where they had a great 
Car Show, all these cars brought back memories of my younger years!

Spent time with family, which is always a Blessings!

There has even been a change in Time
since I've been gone!

Thanksgiving (sorry didn't take photo's)

 We even SOLD our home!
Since I won't be here in it for Christmas, I thought I'd just say this now!

We are waiting on the closing date to be set!
I have been busy cleaning, showing it and looking for just the right place for us! 
It only took 6 days to get an offer. I am having so much emotional feelings now but know it's for the best!

I have missed everyone and was going to wait until we were moved and settle to start over with blogging but just couldn't wait any longer. It's so good to be back with all you dear sweet ladies!

Have  a Blessed Day!

Let the Fall Festivals Begin

Saturday my hubby and I drove to Warm Springs, 
which is only a 30 minute drive, to our first Fall
Festival this year.

It had pumpkins galore!

And the largest prettiest red apples!

All kinds of booths, just about anything you could

Just down the road not even a half mile, is the
Little White House where Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt stayed when he came to Warm Springs.


He was known to stay at the Warm Springs Hotel on occasions also.

Our favorite place to eat when we go to 
Warm Springs, is the Bulloch House Resturant.
Early this year it burned to the ground. 

Wasn't it pretty, especially at night during Christmas!

It is in the process now of repairing the Victorian Tea Room building, which was a favorite of mine also, but it went out of business a few years ago.

It will be the new home of the Bulloch House until they can rebuild on the same spot.

They serve the best Home Cooking ever! People comes from miles around to eat there. They hope to 
reopen in this new place by the first of November.

 These two pumpkin wreaths were hanging on two
windows in front of a store. They look like they would be so easy to make. Pretty too!

Enjoy all the Festivals this Fall !

Have a Blessed Autumn!

Apple Butter Pound Cake

I've had my Southern Lady magazine for
a few weeks now, and every time I looked
at it I really wanted to make this cake on the
cover.  It's an Apple Butter Pound Cake.

I finally got up the nerve to make it.
The recipe is long so I won't try to 
post it.  It takes an hour and 20 minutes
to bake (and the good Lord knows I am 
not a patient woman).  15 to 20 minutes
just to mix the ingredients. Then placing
dough in the bunt pan 1/3 at a time. Cooling
it until it's completely cooled. Another 15 minutes

to make the glaze. Oh and to start at first you have to mix up a pecan,brown sugar and butter mixture. Anyway I started at 4 o'clock P.M.

and it was 8 o'clock when I finally finished it.
Maybe I am just a little too slow!

Now mine didn't turn out as pretty and white like 
the photo in the magazine. I forgot and didn't cool 
my glaze completely before I put the confectioners sugar in. my bad, I did say I am not very patient, didn't I!

It was good, even if it doesn't look as good.

And even better with a cup of Tea !

I love how my plants Loves this cool weather. They are growing and doing so good. Just don't like thinking it won't be long before the frost will 
come and take it all away. 

Have a Blessed Day!

What to do on a Rainy Day!

70 % rain today!
Wow, now what to do on a Rainy Day!
 Dark and dreary days can be depressing 
if we let it.

Isaiah 60:19
"The Lord will be your everlasting
light, and your God will be your

So I embrace it and do some decorating!

I put a couple of scarecrows on the porch.

I always enjoy dressing up my table,
even if no one is coming for dinner.

A pretty leaf plate placed in a green one.
I used fall wash cloths for napkins.

Placed a few leaves and small pumpkins around 
the centerpiece, and a few other items.

A teapot is always a must!

Now I'm ready for fall.

Have a Blessed Day!
