Friday's Photo's




I love flowers, especially the ones that
bloom first in the spring after a long winter!

I looked out my window and saw this Narcissus
yesterday.


Look at how many blooms are on that 
one plant!

I walked around the house and found these
Daffodils blooming.


I had to get a photo of one up close, ok two!



I love it when nature wakes up and everything
seems to come alive after a long winters nap.

I tried to get a good photo of the sunset, but It wasn't as pretty as I have seen it before.



I must have waited to late, it's almost down.

Thankful Thursday





I am thankful for all the Valentine wishes from
all my sweet blogger friends, Facebook friends and family. 
I truly hope everyone had a great day. 
Hubby and I spent the day together shopping and
had lunch together at one of our favorite restaurants.
After a day of fun and togetherness, it's back to that ole duty, housework!  Someone has to do it so guess that someone is me. Blah! It's not too bad. I am thankful for a home for shelter, for food and  so many other daily blessings.

I am so truly blessed!

Valentine Poem






God's Valentine Gift
By Joanna Fuchs

God's Valentine's gift of love
to us was not a bunch of
flowers; 
It wasn't candy , or a book
to while away the hours.

His gift to become a man,
so he could freely give
His sacrificial love for us,
so you and I could live.

He gave us sweet salvation,
and instruction, good and true
To love our friends and enemies
and love our Savior too.

So we give our Valentines,
Let's thank our Lord and King;
The reason we have love to give
Is that he gave everything!






"Unto every one of us is given grace 
according to the measure of the gift of 
Christ."
Ephesians 4:7

Have a Blessed Day!

Monday Morning Chat






Some mornings I drink coffee and some mornings
I drink Tea and some morning, I drink both.
How about you?


Saturday I received this beautiful Valentine from
a dear blogger friend. It is so pretty! Thank you my friend for thinking of me.



It looks Vintage, doesn't it!

"Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one other."
1 John 4:11

I am thankful for the love of my blogging sister's in Christ!
I am so blessed by their love and encouragement.

"Love your neighbor as yourself".
Luke 10:27

Have a Blessed Day!

Tuesday Morning Coffee






Good Morning and Happy Tuesday!

It is raining here today! Looks so dreary out,
but hoping it clears up.  It may be a day for
coffee and a good movie.


Looking forward to Valentine Day.
 
No candy for me this year, I'm trying to not
eat so much sweets.
I do love..


Roses!

I'm looking for Deserts to make,
that are low carbs.

I did make these Low Carb Peanut Butter Bites,
Monday. They are good. I love peanut butter!


Just 3 ingredients

1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon Stevia sweetener 
Mix together until smooth

I put about 3/4 tablespoon on a baking
sheet then baked at 350 degrees for 12 -15 minutes . 
You can use a fork and flatten them.


Have a Blessed Day!

Blessings in Disguise




Blessings come in many ways.
We don't always recognize them.
We may believe that we are living a 
life that we should be living. Then
troubles come and cause us to wonder.
We thank God for all he does for us--
but-- we still have troubles come into 
our life, and we're sad cause we don't 
understand why God doesn't answer us
the way we want and when we want Him to.




By being faithful and trusting God and his 
faithfulness in His Time all things will work
out for our good.


"Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face
continually."
1 Chronicles 16:11


When we lose one blessing, another is often
given in it's place.


When troubles come our way, let our heart seek
the Lord!

"Glory in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord"
1 Chronicles 16:10


O Lord in all things, help me to seek your will, and not my own.
Help me to look for you in all my troubles!
Amen

May your day be filled with God's Blessings!

Happy February, the Love month!
Although we should show Love

Monday Chat








Here it is another week!
I woke up with the temperature of
51 degrees and it's to get to 60 today,
Tomorrow morning it's to be 28 degrees
and the high of 49!
Can you believe that! There's no wonder
people are sick with colds, sniffles and runny
noses!




And Hubby has an MRI tomorrow. Well a
coat and scarf will do! Praying all goes well
with it. I have to drive an hour and half to get
there and never been to this place before.
I have got to learn how to use Maps on my iPhone!!

Saturday was a great day! Two of my daughters
came for a visit, one in the morning and one in
the afternoon. Then Sunday (yesterday) my youngest daughter came after church.
Children are a blessing and I am blessed with
3 of the most thoughtful daughters!



Have a Wonderfully Blessed Day!

A PLACE OF QUIET REST



There are days when you may need
to find a place to get away from all
life's pressure's. All the noise around
us, the TV, computer, and yes even
people.
We long for peace and quiet. 

"Come ye yourselves apart into a desert
place, and rest a while"
Mark 6:30






We can find that place where we love to go
and sit quietly so we can enjoy all of God's 
beauty around us. 
Maybe alone on a beach listening to the ocean
waves.





Maybe a green meadow surrounded by trees and 
mountains.


Or just a walk and enjoy nature.
There we may reflect on all that God has
done in our life.
His love and mercy, the blessings we may 
take for granted each day.

Where ever we find that place we can have
peace and feel His presence. We can cast all
our burdens on Him and have God filled peace 
that the world has taken away. That place
can only be found in our relationship with our 
Lord Jesus.

"There is a place of quiet rest,
near to the heart of God,
A place where all is joy and peace'
Near to the heart of God."
(Mcafee)

When we spend Time with God,
we will find our quiet place.

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Random Poto's for Friday


Friday's are special  since we get to 
post some photo's we've taken during
the week.
My grandson, Johnathan, called and asked
if we could have lunch together. We went
to this small but beautiful town where he 
goes to College. (We lived there some years ago).
We met at the Pastime Grill, a place where all
the locals gather.





This is a photo I tried to get of the College
after we left. I do all the driving now so I
had to get it out the front window. Please 
forgive how it looks.





Another shot from my window of Gordon State College. 




One day I made Apple Tarts.
I used a can of Grands biscuits
and a tub of Cinnamon Apples.
You just take the biscuit and roll
it out. Place a small amount of
the apples in the center and fold
over. Then you use your thumb or
fork and press the biscuit together.  





Some apple came out, but it sure was good.
I did melt some butter and put it on top of
the biscuit and then sprinkled cinnamon sugar
on it.






I love the sunrise every morning. 
Isn't this pretty!

Have a Nice Day!

New Family Pet






My granddaughter, Morgan, birthday was
December 29th. Her daddy surprised her
with a new puppy. She lost her Ellie a few months
earlier. It's a Mini Dachshund named Red.


She brought him for a visit on Sunday.
He's 8 weeks old now, and so cute.


My Chihuahua ,  Madi is a very protective family pet. She likes no one, just family. She
especially doesn't like other dogs.
I wish she wasn't like this but that's the way
it is.



To our surprise, she liked Red. At least that day
she did. I'm guessing it's because he's so little.



We took them for a walk together. Red didn't like walking on the dormant grass. It was a little harsh.
I hope they continue to get along, Madi needs a friend.




Maybe he'll come for a visit often so Madi can get use to him.

Pets are a great companion always excited to see you when you come home after being gone so long. Wagging their little tails and jumping up and down. They are part of the family, giving us unconditional love.

Have a Blessed Day!

Monday Morning




What a difference a week makes.
Last week it was 19 degrees and snowed,
This morning it is 47 at the moment and
will get to 65 by afternoon.



The sunrise is so pretty this morning.
This photo was taken by my friend,
Jane. She took it outside on her porch.
She said it was ok for me to borrow it off her facebook page.



"....the joy of the Lord is your strength".
Nehemiah 8:10


Just looking at the sunrise brings joy to my soul!
We are blessed with another day, to love and live in His presence.



Have a Blessed Day!
