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

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!

Sunday, January 28, 2018


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
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

Maybe a green meadow surrounded by trees and 

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."

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!

I am linking with Debbie at Breathing in Grace,

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!

Snow in Georgia

Well we woke up to a beautiful snowfall
this morning!

It's 21 degrees at 10:23, we don't get snow often
here in West North West Georgia.
When we do it is pretty and everyone gets a day off work and school. Doctor's close also.

My Madi couldn't find any grass!

Stay warm where you are!Sylvia

On my Bucket List

I am not a winter type of person.
This cold weather doesn't help at all
to make a person happy. Staying inside
out of the cold trying to stay warm.
I am so ready for Spring, so I thought
I would show you some photo's of 
Gibbs Garden in the North Georgia mountains
near Ballground. I have been here, but never 
in all our trips visited the gardens.

Gibbs Garden

I have never been there but I sure would 
love to.  It is on my bucket list.
We don't drive through Atlanta anymore,
so someone will need to drive for us when
we go.

Isn't Spring flowers much nicer to see than
snow, although snow is pretty, I'd much rather
enjoy pretty flowers and warm weather.

Gibbs Garden Trails

Gibbs Garden Manor House

The 300 acre estate has over 220 acres of beautiful
gardens. It is opened to the public.

This photo was posted on their Facebook page

Gibbs Garden photo of Japanese Pool

Beautiful but makes me chilly.

All this 20's and 30's temperatures in the mornings, isn't good for my bones. Today the weatherman is saying we 'may' get up to 1/2 inch of snow tomorrow morning. Hope not.. I have to drive an hour for my Hubby's doctor appointment.

Have a Blessed Day!

When Troubles Comes Remember..

"Have not I commanded thee, be strong and of a good courage, be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
Joshua 1:9

Remember...  God's promise to always be with you.
Remember... all the things He has done for you.

We can be still and quiet in our spirit and meditate on His blessings.

When the clouds of life aren't as bright and sunny as we would like them to be, Remember..out of our despair, God reminds us of His love through his son Jesus Christ. We can return to resting in his great love.

" I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me."
Psalms 77:1

Remember... the sky will once again become bright and the sun will shine again.

We may not feel His presence but He knows our every heartache. In our weakness He is our strength.

"Lord, I cannot understand the depth of your love or the wisdom of your ways when trouble comes upon me.  Help me to find my way back into your arms and remember your glorious love for me."

Out of our troubles He calms the storms and makes a way for us.

" O that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for his wonderful works..."
Psalm 107:31

Praying in the days to come,
 for all the people that are
hurting and need God's love
and blessings in their lives.

Janurary National Hot Tea Month

Did you know that January is 
National Hot Tea Month!

I looked up National Hot Tea Month on the 
internet and it said " Tea is the second most 
popular beverage in the world next to water."
Yes, in the WORLD!
You can read about all the good that tea does
for you HERE

The article said that Tea flavonoids may help increase metabolism and fat oxidation. Now
that may help us with our New Years Resolution to lose weight.

Other than strengthening our metabolism and fat oxidation it helps maintain hydration and so much more.
I have always enjoyed a cup of hot tea, now I know it does so much more for me than warm me up inside on a cold winter's day.

Maybe it is Time to have a cup!
