Thankful for Today






Today I am thankful I have a Heavenly Father
that hears and answers my prayers. He draws
near to me when I seek Him and His will.


He comforts me in my sorrows and fills my
heart with Love!

May you find joy and peace in your day!

Good Sunday Morning







This verse touched me this week and I wanted
to share it with you. I have been doing a lot of
soul searching lately and this verse helps me
put things in perspective, it's the content of my
heart that God cares about, not how I look on
the outside although I do believe he wants us
to look descent.  

"She maketh herself coverings of tapestry;
 her clothing is silk and purple."
Proverbs 31:22

To live my life for Christ, so I can live it pleasing to him as a follower of Him, a wife, a mother and friend. I have to go back and read
 Proverbs 31:10 - 31 often.

May you have a Blessed week!
Sylvia

It's Okay Not to be Okay__Book Review



This is the first time I have done a book review.
My birthday was in August and my daughter, Debbie, preordered me the book, "It's Okay not to be Okay" by Sheila Walsh. It wasn't released until October.



  It came a couple weeks ago and I took a week to read it since it was so enlightening. I didn't want it to end, it was that informative and helpful. I have been going through a lot this year, not just with my hubby having TMI (mini strokes) but personally and spiritually too.


"God will hold me up in his victorious right hand,,,,,"
Isaiah 41:10



He has held me and brought me a long way.
I give Him all praise and honor, I couldn't go another day without Him with me.

"Don't be afraid, for I am with you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you."
Isaiah 41:10


Sheila Walsh is a bible teacher and bestselling author with more than 5 million books sold.
She is the author of Gigi, God's Little Princess and In the Middle of the Mess.
She is the cohost of Life Today with James and Betty Robinson, and her Wednesdays in the Word program. She lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband and son.
She helps you overcome the struggles of daily life by changing the way you think about God and yourself. She shares practical, doable strategies that will help you move from the pain and sadness you've experienced no matter what you've been through, failed marriage, lost friendships, addictions or lost jobs, etc that will help you move forward one step at a time. She uses scripture to back up all that she says, and she uses her on life experiences. 
As a believer I am sure you will find this helpful in your daily walk and find that it is OKay not to be Okay.

One sentence she used is "For every what-if that crosses your mind -and trust me, they still cross mine--allow the truth of God's Word to be louder
than the clamor of fear."



          F…. Fall on your face before Him 
                    E…. ….  earnestly seek Him.
          A ……..  ask Him to give you His peace.
          R …….. rest in His presence. 

I found this book interesting, helpful and it was even funny at times. I am writing this on my own. I wasn't asked by the publisher or Mrs. Walsh to write a review. I truly enjoyed reading it and would recommend it!



Have a Blessed weekend!

Monday Blessings





We all have those days that we feel down and
not wanting to face it. Today I had a good talk
with my heavenly father and I believe this day
He holds me in His arms and I can do this, with
His help. 
I love the photo I found on the internet, it speaks
to me and my Prayer is that you'll find His Love
in your walk in your journey.

Have a Blessed Day!

SUNDAY ENCOURAGEMENT






As we go through this week I hope you 
are blessed beyond measure and find
peace and joy.

"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts;
and be ready always to give an answer
to every man that asketh you a reason
of hope that is in you with meekness and 
fear."
1 Peter 3:15

Be Blessed, until next time!

Tuesday's Blessings







2 Timothy 1:7
"God doesn't give us a spirit of fear, but of 
power, love and self-discipline."

God hasn't given us a spirit of fear, but it is
something we all struggle with at times. 
Our hearts feels fear when there is danger, this
helps us to understand that we need to be careful
and alert to what's around us. Our fear sometimes
helps us to recognize that we should examine ourselves to see if we're doing something right or wrong for us. Our fear of the Lord should always be to obey Him. He loves us and wants what is 
best for us every day. At times He gives us this 
fear so we can see His Love for us and obey and 
"walk in His ways."
My prayer for today is that we all recognize the
fears God puts in our heart and turn to Him for guidance and truths to obey His will for us.


Have a Blessed Tuesday!

HAPPY OCTOBER AND TEA PARTY







Another month gone by!
In Ecclesiastes 3:1-9, it tells us that there is
a time for every season. We know that our
season changes but God's is always the same,
He never changes, He's the same today, yesterday and forever. That is so assuring to me, that He is faithful in every season of my life.

A few weeks ago my granddaughter ask me if I would have a Tea Party for her so she could bring
her best friend that hadn't been to one. Of course
I said yes. I only have two granddaughter's and I started having tea parties with them when they were old enough to walk. They always had a good time and I love that they enjoy a cup of hot tea.



This is Anna and her friend Samantha.
Anna is my granddaughter on the right.


We all had fun laughing and planning our
next outing.


I got my hubby to take this photo of us at the table.
He had to eat in the living room. 
He didn't mind, just so he had food!






We had chicken salad wraps, scones with
Lemon Curd, Cinnamon Pumpkin rolls,
Chicken Salad (not in wraps) Fruit, and
too many sweets!
I had several different kinds of tea for
them to chose from.  









Our tummies were filled and our hearts 
warmed. A good time was had by all.




Until next time,
Have a blessed Day!
