Christmas Past

I titled this post "Christmas Past" 
since I am not decorating at my home this year, I will show
you some photo's from Christmas past. This is
from a Christmas in the  '90s, These are my dolls
enjoying Tea with Santa. Many of these I have
given to my two granddaughters.

 We are packing to move within the next couple weeks. I hope to be able to decorate in our new 

My daughter gave me this Caroler in 2002 for Christmas,
I love her and still use her today.

My sister gave me this sleigh a few years ago.
I loved filling it with ornaments. 

I found these candle holder deer, at a thrift store
a few years ago. They were gold and I painted 
them white. I love white!

Every year just before Christmas my grandchildren and I have a cookie bake day.  Hopefully we will still be able to do it this year also. We may need to have it at one of there homes. We make gingerbread men each year, this is a photo from a couple Christmas's ago. They do so good decorating them.

 The fiber optic Angel Tree Topper is a favorite!

Love my Holly Christmas Teacup my daughter gave me last year.

Yes, even Madi let me dress her for Christmas.
It's always nice to remember pass Christmas's 
and the fun and Love that surrounds it, but 
let's not forget what the True meaning of Christmas

Hope to see you tomorrow for Christmas Present!

Have a Blessed Monday!

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!
