(HAPPY THANKSGIVING)

Nothing like the month of November to remind us of all God has blessed us with, through out the year; Let us keep our minds on him, not the turkey, or the pies but what our blessed Saviour has done for us. He loved us to death, his death on that old rugged cross, he laid down his life for me, and for you. May we take a few minutes every day just to thank him.

Psalm 100:4-5 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures all generation. Blessings!

My heart just sings as I put all these verses of thanksgiving on my Face Book page, join with me and post your favorite verses of thanksgiving too, let us see how many we can get before Thanksgiving day, November is a month that we seem to focus more on being thankful, more than any other month, although we should be giving God our praise and thanks daily. So do post your verse in this post too, thank you and May God bless you and may we all be thankful for the very air we breath in.

I pray each of you have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving,  Do not eat too much.

It is amazing how fast the time is going, Thanksgiving will be here in just a week or so.
We are having family in for Thanksgiving, we bought a 23 pound Turkey the other day, I do the major of the cooking, and the kids bring sides, drinks and desserts, I am making an Watergate Salad though, think I will add t to my Love and a bite of Brownie page. 

My husband is preaching a funeral today,the husband of one of our ladies in Woodbine Church, Chuck led him to the lord a few years ago, and after a year of illness he passed on, but praise God we will see him again. Keep the Allen Crews family in your prayers.

Guess What??? Give up, well lookie here. We already have our Christmas tree up, did not intend for it, but got a new pre-lit tree and wanted to make sure it worked. Pretty eh...

WelI am running late, need to go and get dressed, be blessed, and keep us in your prayers please.

It has turned cold in Georgia...I really love it though, good football weather. Loved the Florida Georgia game, Florida won, we have been Gator fans for ever, and happy to see them win over Georgia this year. My dear husband celebrating the win, giggles...


He really enjoyed this game...My great grandsons play foot ball too, they done good this year.


You can see I have my Christmas tree up already too, behind Chuck.It is early but we bought it new and put it up to see if it worked, it looked so pretty we decided to leave it up, still have to put the icicles on it..But it will be up for Thanksgiving, we have the kids come here. Lots to look forward to.

Going to be a busy month, but thank God I am able to do all that needs to be done. I praise the lord for allowing me the health to keep going.

I pray you have a wonderful Thanksgiving day, and that you will give thanks daily for all God has given you. Be blessed, and do be a Blessing.

Psalm 69:30  I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with Thanksgiving.

WOW what an awesome Sunday we had, whew I am still excited..We had a young couple come forward, they had been separated and been through counseling and now back together and want to serve God again, it was so good seeing this.. We had 60 folks saved through the fair ministry through the church, and we will begin to visit them and see if we can get them baptized and joining the church, just such wonderful reports, I am so happy to be part of this. 

Okay now for my notes on the Pastor's sermon today. 
Drinking from the well John 4:27-39 
Being a soul winner, give others that same living water you have. (Jesus) 
Tell everyone about the one who has eternal life, fulfill God's will, he went to the cross for our sins, we are to carry on the work that Christ started, let us serve happily and finish the race we started when being saved.  We are all called to take the Gospel to a lost and dying world. 

The Harvest will not wait (just ask the farmers) today is the day of salvation, now is the accepted time; will you take the gospel that was the heart of Jesus out today. Will you hear God say well done thy good and faithful servant. 
Don't just hear the Gospel take the Gospel to the world around you. If we do not tell them who will? Certainly not the world around us.It is our responsibility to do this, it is the Great Commission Christ himself give to us..

I tell you it really touched both of us, we do not go near enough any more, we say it is too far, it cost too much gas, well I think my God will meet our need if we do his will. 

So that about does it for now, we have had some awesome weather here in Coastal Georgia, and I am loving it, cool at night and warm in the day, wow seems just too good of weather.  Now I hope you have a great  rest of week. See you again soon.

It has been wonderful here,finally cool, really  good fishing weather, we went and caught about 25 small ones. It was a good day, had lots of fun me and my hubby.

So many are going through illness, and pain, and they seem to be slipping away from God, instead of drawing near to him. Here are some thoughts today to help if you are going through hard times, or if your faith is fading.

When God saved us, he saved our soul, the soul is what will go to heaven when you die. The flesh never gets saved, it is the same old flesh we had before salvation, unruly, and being made to be put under control. What ever we feed the most will be most dominate, if we are not praying, reading our bible, being a witness, we become weak in the Spirit, you see that is the only way the soul becomes strong and can fight the Devil;  praying is us talking to God, reading the Bible is God talking to us, witnessing is us speaking for God. It seems when we are only feeding the flesh, that is when Satan can have a hay day with us, the only way to live an undefeated life is to make Jesus lord over all, he has the power to come against Satan, we are weak in the flesh but strong through Jesus Christ. He is the only way, John 3:16 all of John 3 is a great chapter to refer to, to ponder upon and claim the victory over the Devil. All this is said in much love and concern for those who are having a hard time keeping their eyes on Christ. 

I am sharing this with you, Psalm 51 it is my go to chapter, some times we get busy with life and doing for others, and get a way from God, Like David I have to run back to him, and I have read this chapter so many times the pages in my bible are thin, it has helped me greatly time after time, just crying out unto the lord pleading with him to forgive me, to restore the joy of his salvation. Do you remember the joy you had when you first accepted Jesus as your Saviour? Get back there and plead with the lord, try this , read, reread then claim and make it your special chapter. Trust me I have used it, and it brings you close to the lord. 

Psalm 51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. 

2Co 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

My Plight These Days

Brenda was almost halfway to the top of the tremendous granite cliff. She was standing on a ledge where she was taking a breather during this, her first rock climb. As she rested there, the safety rope snapped against her eye and knocked out her contact lens. 'Great', she thought. 'Here I am on a rock ledge, hundreds of feet from the bottom and hundreds of feet to the top of this cliff, and now my sight is blurry.' She looked and looked, hoping that somehow it had landed on the ledge. But it just wasn't there. 

She felt the panic rising in her, so she began praying. She prayed for calm, and she prayed that she may find her contact lens. 

When she got to the top, a friend examined her eye and her clothing for the lens, but it was not to be found. Although she was calm now that she was at the top, she was saddened because she could not clearly see across the range of mountains. She thought of the bible verse 'The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth.' 

She thought, 'Lord, You can see all these mountains. You know every stone and leaf, and You know exactly where my contact lens is. Please help me.' 

Later, when they had hiked down the trail to the bottom of the cliff they met another party of climbers just starting up the face of the cliff. One of them shouted out, 'Hey, you guys! Anybody lose a contact lens?' 

Well, that would be startling enough, but you know why the climber saw it? An ant was moving slowly across a twig on the face of the rock, carrying it! 
The story doesn't end there. Brenda's father is a cartoonist. When she told him the incredible story of the ant, the prayer, and the contact lens, he drew a cartoon of an ant lugging that contact lens with the caption, 'Lord, I don't know why You want me to carry this thing. I can't eat it, and it's awfully heavy. But if this is what You want me to do, I'll carry it for You.' 
I think it would do all of us some good to say, 'God, I don't know why You want me to carry this load. I can see no good in it and it's awfully heavy. But, if You want me to carry it, I will.' 
God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called. 
Yes, I do love GOD. He is my source of existence and my Savior. He keeps me functioning each and every day Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him... I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. (Phil. 4:13) 
If you love GOD and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things He has done for you, send this to as many people you know. I am not sure where I got this, but, It is an amazing story of how great our God is, we limit him, but in all reality he has no limitations. Praise the holy name of God...Hope you liked this as I did.
Too it reminds me of Hinds Feet for High Places, a great book by Hannah Hurnard. Have a great day.

Just saying hello

Jeremiah 33:3 "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." 
This is such an awesome verse one that I have cited for many years, and yet still stand amazed just how true God's word is, most times we do not call upon the lord, we try to handle things on our own, and it never works out the way we planned, but when we call upon the lord he answers, sometimes it is with a no, other times he answers with much greater than what we ask.

I got my results of the Camera Endoscopy back, it showed nothing either, all is good, so from throat to rectum I am okay, now that is good news. But the down side is we still do not know where the bleeding is coming from, or why I am anemic. I say I will keep eating liver, and taking iron pills and get on with my life. Let the lord decide what to do and when to do it.

Pray for Chuck he is having a pain block on the 30th and if it works then he will have the nerve ablation done. Radiofrequency Ablation
Radiofrequency neurotomy (also called radiofrequency ablation or lesioning) is a minimally invasive procedure that can provide lasting relief to those suffering from facet joint pain. In fact, multiple clinical studies show that radiofrequency neurotomy significantly reduces pain severity and frequency for 1 to 2 years in the majority of patients.

54TH ANNIVERSARY DAY

What an awesome anniversary we had, such fun in the sun, we spent the day on Jekyll Island, Georgia. The ocean is so vast, and it shows the beauty that God has created for his creation to enjoy. You can look for miles and miles of beach and water and just lap up the sunshine he shinned down on us.
When we left home it started raining, and we started singing about Jesus and quoted that verse; Numbers 6:25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: and it started clearing up and the sun shinned the whole rest of the day upon us. It was wonderful. No one could of had a happier and more fun day than we did, yep God truly blessed us with 54 years, and the health to go and do for him, we try to be a witness where ever we go, God truly honors that.

UPDATE ON ,MY SURGERY

Well it is over hopefully...It was quite an ordeal, I sure wish I had been asleep for this to be done, they put about 9 shots all around the area, it numbed it well, but all the pulling and prodding on that area made me very anxious, I could feel myself getting more and more upset, I was praying and all of a sudden a calm came over me and I just relaxed, it was so hot with all the lights above too, they did cover my eyes to keep the bright light out, it took about an hour, so much longer than I thought it would,. I was one happy lady when he said all done, and she started bandaging it, that took forever too, she seemed so rough too, but it may of been because it was numb I could actually not tell. 

He went very deep and the incision was about an inch long, ugh, I so hope he got it all because if he did not, I will have to go through it again, and I sure do not want that. 
So here I am with my arm all bandaged more than when I had the shoulder replacement, wow how can that be???
 But I am okay, I slept really good all night long, I never sleep all night long, usually get up a few time to use the bath room. So that was a good thing. 

Just pray with me that it heals quickly and they did get all the cancer cells so I will not have to go do it again. 
I really appreciate all your prayers, and know that is why everything went so smooth, God has his hand upon me all the way, and never left me for a second.

What a Hot Summer

Our day trip was up to Uvaldala, Georgia, such a fun time; We picked peaches right from the trees, awesome, sweet, juicy peaches, and got this whole bucket full for only 5 dollars. I paid 15 dollars two years ago for 1/4 bucket. Yeah good price, and I am smiling.


It was really funny, we stopped by the state park there, and showing some signs we see, this is our Georgia beach... I love Florida beaches and they still have my vote. The Georgia beaches have much to be desired, the FL beaches are white sand and oh so inviting. But we live in GA and need to support the area where you live, I come from FL and still has my heart. 



Any how we ended up in coffee County at a state park there, we did a round about way in SE part of Georgia. It was a great day, and fun time being with my honey.


Our dear Lord has been so good to us, and give us the opportunity to travel many places in our 54 years together, without him I probably would of never left our little home town, so many I know never have been more than 50 miles from home, but we have been in all but 6 states, and in 5 different Countries, awesome God we serve. 

Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth."
I will certainly exalt my God every where we go, we give out tracts, and tell others of what Jesus has did for us, and that only by his love and grace we continue on. Thank you lord for all the blessings on me and my family. 
Now you all have a very blessed week, and stay cool, it is only 96 here today instead of 98, so guess we have a cool down, NOT...
