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.

Thankful Thursday and Friday's Fhotos



The gifts we give may not be expensive, but the
gift of our time is more precious to others when
we give it with Love.

Children and sometimes adults doesn't realize
the cost of a gift. I say that to remind us of the
greatest gift ever given. That was the gift of life.
That gift wasn't free, it cost the sacrifice of pain and suffering. It cost the precious blood of our
Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 6:20
"For you are bought with a price"

April 1 is Easter, many will only think of eggs
and bunnies, but it's so much more than that.
Easter is to celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

This gift of Love, cost was expensive, more than perishable things such as silver and gold. It
cost the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect."
  1 Peter 1:18-19

We learn to be truly thankful when we learn the 
cost of our free gift of salvation. The greatest blessing of all!


I am thankful for family! This week has been a
week of doctors visit. Tuesday after hubby's appointment we met my sister, Linda, at Cheddar's for lunch then  she and I sent the men home while we went shopping. 
When we finished and returned to her house for
me to pick up my hubby I noticed her Bradford Pear Trees were blooming. Grabbed my camera and snapped a photo as we were leaving.


Another day hubby and I went to Zaxby's for lunch. Outside the building was a row of pretty
Camellia's .



I got a close up of this one bloom so you could see
the raindrops on it. They remind me so much of roses.

Have a Blessed Day and remember to always be thankful for each day, for it is a blessings!
