Monday's Moment to Breathe





"Who can find a virtuous women? for her price is far above rubies." 
Proverbs 31:10

Seek to be a woman of virtue. The noun virtue  is behavior showing high moral standards. A quality considered morally good or desirable in a person.
A good or useful quality of a thing.

Today's standards seem to be lowered from the times of years ago. I see all around where the values instilled in me are no longer those of society today. This morning I saw where one state
is trying to ban the sell of Bibles. If preachers don't preach the truth and there are no more Bibles to read and hear God's word to us, I don't even want to think of the outcome of this country.

We can and should be a light of God's love for other to see. As women we can take Proverbs 31 and apply it to our lives in how we live, setting an example for the younger women. 

"Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised."
Proverbs 31:30

Let's instill in our young children the fear of God but at the same time tell them of His Love for a lost and dying world.  

A Moment to Breathe

Find a place today to quietly meet with God in prayer and meditation. Let His love and presence fill your heart.



Have a Blessed Day!

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.

Do something special for someone today
and 
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!

A Moment to Breathe

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!
