Anna and SCAD



No, nothing is medically wrong with my granddaughter, Anna.
SCAD stands for 
Savannah College of Arts and Design.
A few weeks ago she was invited to visit the college, she hopes to go there when she finishes high school, in a couple years.
Anna loves to take photo's and is really good at it. She loves nature and takes photo's of it often. 
Here are a few of the photo's she took when she was in Savannah at SCAD.








Here are a few other photo's she took of nature.







This is her Ukulele.





This last photo was taken by her Dad, Scott, as she was taking a photo.

Friday Foto Friends and Enjoying Spring



Yesterday was such a pretty day,
so we packed up and went to our
favorite state park and had a picnic.


The water there is so calm and nice.
I am getting to that place in my life
that I enjoy calm and quiet.

I live in a historic neighborhood and 
although it's quiet most of the time,
it's good to get out in the countryside. I am
a country girl at heart.


This is the street I live on. It's homes are all
cottages built in the late 20's and 30's.
The street is lined with dogwoods and Oak trees.





Although mine next to my house is dropping it's blossoms, the ground looks like snow.





My Hosta is so pretty.



I love Spring when all the plants and flowers start to bloom!
My Redbud tree is starting to bloom too.


Today it's going to be 80 degrees, we plan to get out and enjoy the warm weather again. Tomorrow's forecast is 83 degrees, oh but
Sunday it's going to rain and turn cooler again, 65 degrees is the high. 
Enjoy it when we're blessed with it, is what I say!

These are some of the photo's I took this week.

Be Blessed!

MESSY DAYS







We all have struggles, times when
it's not easy to relate to others.
Not only those that you are friends with
but those you live with.
God knows and helps us in those struggles!
As his child he protects us from things
we may never know.
I have days I call 'messy' days. It's those days
when things don't go as good as I would
like for them too. An unkind word spoken
that is hard to undo. A look you wish you
hadn't given to someone you love.
The Lord is gracious and forgiving. When we 
ask for forgiveness and turn from those
ways he shows us love and gives us His peace!

It's in trials and heartaches that His presence often seems strongest, for He promises to be near to the brokenhearted. Whether your day ends with dismay or delight, look for Him to be near. 




"For there is one God and one mediator
between God and humanity, the man Christ
Jesus."
1 Timothy 2:5-6

Have a Blessed Day!

God's Story of Love





A few weeks ago I received a summons for Jury Duty. My first thoughts were, "oh my, how am I
going to be able to do this, I need to be with my 
husband who's unable to do much for himself, even though he wants too, he  doesn't need to be left alone for a long period of time."
He no longer drives and needs to be driven to doctors appointments and Physical Therapy.
I began to pray as I filled out the paper to be mailed back. I checked the box that said I was a caregiver and needed to be excused. 

""
"Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name,
proclaim his deeds among the people"
Psalm 105:1

I told my 3 daughters, and they began to pray also that the Lord would work this out in my favor.
Monday when I went to fulfil my duty, I found myself sitting between two ladies. We began to talk with each other as we waited for the judge. I found myself encouraging them and they me. I am amazed how God works to bring peace and comfort in times of stress. Two ladies I had never met and may never meet again was placed there for support. I have always felt like my Spiritual Gift was to be an encourager, although God tells us all to 'encourage one another'.

" Therefore encourage one another"
1 Thessolonians 5:11

I was dismissed from jury duty and came away feeling blessed to have been given the opportunity to encourage these two ladies. I have learned that we will be blessed with joy and peace when we bless others. God hears and answers our prayers!

"Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works."
Psalm 105:2


I love to tell the story of how God blesses me.



Have a Blessed Day!

A Moment to Breathe



Today is the first day of Spring!
So thankful, now for some pretty
sunny days!


Park in Savannah, Georgia


Yesterday, my husband and I drove
to Macon for his doctors appointment.
After lunch we had about 30 minutes
to spare before his appointment,
so I visited the Lifeway Christian bookstore.

I found a new devotional. It's written for
and by women. They share their life experiences.
The title of the book is
"A Moment to Breathe".

Day one's moment quote was, 
"look into the eyes of someone today that
you meet and may not know with a smile
that says "Hi". 
A simple smile will go a long way to someone
that may be having a bad day.

"I am sure of this, that he who have started
a good work in you will carry it on to completion 
until the day of Christ Jesus"
Philippians 1:6
Christian Standard Bible


Savannah, Georgia


I even went on and read the second day! It is 
blessing me. The title is,
"Praying for rain"


"Ask the Lord for rain in the season
of spring rain. The Lord makes the rain
clouds and he will give them showers of
rain..."
Zechariah 10:1
Christian Standard Bible


Well yesterday, I was praying that it 
wouldn't rain. God answered my prayers.
You see I don't like to drive in the rain,
especially thunderstorms. That was the
forecast for the day. The severe thunderstorms
held off until 3 A.M. this morning. I am so thankful
for answered prayers.


"Give thanks for the abundance He has shown"

'A Moment to Breathe'

This week my granddaughter, Morgan
and grandson Johnathan's college is out
for Spring Break. Along with a few friends,
they took a trip to Savannah for a couple days.
These were some of the photo's they took.



Tybee Island Beach

Personally I read the King James Version
of the Bible, but always check with it when
reading from a different version.

I am so thankful and grateful for all blessings,
and thanks for all the prayers you have said for
my hubby and I. He is continuing to improve and 
getting stronger with the help of Physical Therapy.

Have a Blessed Day!

Time and Life Changes





I woke up this morning and with the time
change it sure seemed like I had over slept.
Sure wish they would leave it at one or the
other, too much changes for this "olden" lady.




Yes,  it was this past weekend!
Now if Spring would hurry and Spring in!

With time changes and life changes
sometimes it can get a little over whelming!
My life has changed in the last couple months.
My hubby has had several mini strokes and a 
larger one. This has effected his walk. He no longer drives and now it's up to me to get him to all his doctors appointments. Two days a week he
goes to physical therapy.
My time on the computer has been cut back lots.
I do try and read your blogs and when I can comment.  He requires a lot of my attention.
Thanks for understanding and prayers.
