A good and blessed morning to all!!

Oh my gosh!  It really has been since the beginning of summer  that there has been a posting!
Forgive us please?!

We both were busy thru the summer!  Brenda is enjoying her new little gain. He is a precious one! But keeps her on her toes!

I kept busy thru the summer as well.  My health and disability issues often dictate what or how I do things?  But I am learning 'new normals' as each year passes I think!

I have been doing some studies thru my 'Girlfriends in God' website that I enjoy and those ladies sure bless my days!
It has been a VERY hot and dry summer out here in the heartland. Most days very humid and in triple digits.  I don't know about everyone else? But I a Soooo ready for the cool fall air and beautiful colors of leaves turning!

Hope each and everyone of you are doing well. Would love to hear how you are doing and what fall plans lie ahead!

Blessings to all!

It Has Been Awhile!!!

Good afternoon to all our followers!!

It has been several months since a post.

Brenda is enjoying her new grandson! She has been really busy helping to watch him and making sewing projects for him!

I too, am enjoying time with gkids!

Our farmers market has been open for the past couple of weeks and I enjoy going there each Sat.
I am able to get farm fresh vegs at far better prices than the stores!
There are crafts and plants and baked goods galore as well.
It is just an enjoyable morning every Sat for me.

I have been container gardening some herbs on my balcony. They are growing and thriving.
Just picked up a mini pack of some flowers to re-pot as well.

Have been busy working at some 'back to basics' things. Making own laundry and dish soap. There are several recipes online to choose from! So far the results have been good and you save a ton of $ per load!

These days I am trying to just enjoy simple basics of life that God blesses us all with! Looking forward to trying some new sewing projects, knitting and trying some needlework crafts.

Hope each of you have been doing well! Please let us know how you are doing!

May God bless your days and may you find the simple joys of God in His Word, as well as a beautiful sunrise/sunset!

Happy 'Sonday' to you!

Good morning to all!

Gosh, it has been awhile since updating the blog. So sorry for that!

With gkids, life and commitments tend to take center stage so often! Lol!

Hope that our blog followers are doing well and life is treating you good!

Brenda has been very busy sewing and crafting as a new grand baby is expected to arrive in a few short weeks! Such a blessed and exciting time for her family! Also, her computer is down for the count right now .
Soooo......will keep you updated for her!

Life these days is teaching us both a lot! Or, more importantly, God is!!!

We both will be in more daily involved roles with our gkids. As we get older and less sure of our health and these aging bodies????? It gets a bit scary. But the joys our grandchildren of all ages, bring us? We cannot even express the wonder of it!!

Isn't God amazing?

Every day is a new beginning, a new challenge to learn from and enjoy!

Absolutely some days more than others? Some days far more difficult ?!Some days just pure joy and blessings !

Yet I am learning that thru each moment, each trial and phase of life that He is there and He is always willing to stand beside me, help and guide me IF I allow Him to! If I can manage to let Him be God and quiet myself to hear His still voice inside me!

Let's challenge ourselves to take some moments of each of our busy days. To calm and quiet ourselves and let God be God within our hearts!

May He bless and go before your day today!

Good morning to all!!!

Well, we are nearly 1 week into this new year of 2012.

I have found an amazing website that has really been blessing me each day. It is loaded with great things to help us grow in our daily walk with Jesus!

The website is:

Please check it out! I promise you will be blessed.

My new year is bringing changes each day..... Good ones.... I think!

I am spending more time with gkids each day and they are a blessing. They bless me, challenge my thoughts and for certain make me smile!!!! It is true that kiddos DO say the darndest things, lol!!

Has anyone done any resolutions? I try each year and usually blow it by the 2nd day?!
This year I am looking more long term and looking for God to guide what I do, instead of hoping to rely on myself! That is never a good thing in my case!!

It is my hope that this year, I learn from Him, grow in Him, develop more friendships and learn from other sisters in Christ.

His blessings abound and I hope to learn and cherish each one that He allows for me!!!

It has been amazing weather here and I am blessed by the warm sunshine and crisp air! We are into winter and I am still able to enjoy the balcony and quiet prayer time with Him there!

My thoughts and prayers are with you dear ladies!
Life today is a journey, certainly a challenge some days!
I may not know every challenge that you are facing this day....
BUT HE DOES!!!!! And even if, at the moment, you may feel alone and confused??
Reach out to HIM!!! Keep hanging in there and know that IN HIS TIME you will see a victory! HE will see you thru!!! I have been at that place! I may be at that place again!!!

It is my prayer that, no matter what, we all remember His love, His strength, His wisdom is NEVER FAILING!! Lean on that, trust in that always!
May each one of us have a day that HE goes before us and we are blessed by HIM!!!

Thank you for stopping by! Your visits and comments bless our day!!
