HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW; AND I KNOW HE'S WATCHING ME.
Chuck too this of one of our little fox sparrows so thought I would share with you,
they are fed good here and many gather, we feed our wild birds chicken scratch, it is cheaper and much more nourishing than bird feed, they love it, as the squirrels do.
~IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD~
Every time I say that make me think of Mr. Rogers, anyone remember him?He was on TV daily a kids program, one man you never heard anything bad about, a good simple man who reached
Any how, that is why I said that, and it being a beautiful sunny day, it is gorgeous outside, from looking out the window, it is cold in reality though, only a high of 56 today I believe. Still to cold to go fishing, maybe soon, but seems every day sunny and warm enough is on a Sunday, and we sure would never go on the Lord's day, I would be afraid of drowning, or a huge wind coming up and capsizing; lol, he is a jealous God, and we know that, so he would not want us anywhere but at church worshiping him.
Chuck had a good day yesterday, he spent it with our pastor and a missionary planning our visiting program, it will be Saturday at 11 am now, some will still go out Thursday evenings but lord willing many will come out on Saturday. We made out some new flyers to hand out, people like getting things and we are ordering new testaments to make some door hanger items. Everyone is getting excited about this, and it is doing good for Chuck, that is where his real burden is, always has been, so this ministry is perfect for him.
So what is new in your area now, so many are so busy these days, and not here much, so when you come share with us. I love each of you and so want God's richest blessings upon you. So pray one for another. and God bless you.
We had a awesome Monday, got to go to the store and spend lots of money, Chuck got a hair cut instead of a dog tag, and we just had a good time together, we do not do many exciting things any more, but our time spent together is good, and we still laugh a lot. I think that is important, be able to laugh at yourself especially, and we do some silly things we laugh about. God has blessed us with a simple life, and being able to serve him is our goal, we love the lord, we love each other, we love our family and friends, and thank God every day for everyone in our life.
We have bad days we have good days, but we always praise God for each day.
Have a blessed day, remember Jesus loves you, and so do I.
Psalm 5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
Wonderful Saturday, it stopped raining, that is an awesome blessing to me, we live in low lands and when it rains for days on end we flood, never in the home but at times was right to the edge..God is my refuge and my wonderful hiding place, I go to him and pray and he consoles me.
(Psalm 91:1 & 2 ) "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."
" I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust."
When I was a child I had a special shelter, a secret
place where I would take my books, my doll and maybe
an apple to munch on.
I was raised in a little Country town in Michigan, we lived on a dirt road, with a huge Oak tree across the street, I loved that tree; and would climb it and sit in the cradle of its limbs, I could see for a mile up the road, and felt really safe in this big Oak. I still reminisce about those wonderful times in the innocence of my youth.
Today I have a special hiding place and it is with my
Lord and Saviour. I know when times get rough and
scary that I can slip into my special place with God
and he will comfort and encourage me.
How precious to know that no matter what we are going
though in this life... that Jesus will never leave nor
forsake us. We can rest in the strength and love of His
wonderful arms. We can tell Him all the things that we
are sometimes afraid to say to others.
Father, You are our hiding place. No matter what goes
on around us with the turmoil of this earth today, we
can slip into Your loving and caring arms. Thank You
precious LORD. Amen.
Praising God We were well enough to go to both services yesterday, it was so good to be back in our place, singing, loving and worshiping our dear lord, he oh so worthy. Today I am stuffed up again, ugh not sure why, maybe we got over tired yesterday. Our pastor preached such an awesome message, both services.. Got my blood work back for my Rhuematologist and all is good, praise God, I was afraid all the sickness may of made my tests show up different. It is for Kidney, liver etc functions and level my RA is, even show any infection in the bone. The sun is still shining here too, that is a great sight; it is still cold but not dreary any how, it only got to 63 here yesterday, was suppose to be 70, but it was a lovely day. So how is all with you here?Any plans for the Holiday? Hope to hear from some today.
Seems we all have a time to wait on the lord, some for health, some for finances, some for homes even. It seems we all have something we are waiting on the lord for. When I was a very young Christian God burdened my heart with Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." It is a very good lesson to learn, we all spend much time waiting, daily we wait on something, as we wait on the lord we learn patience, we learn how to be still and listen for that still small voice talking to us, there are many reasons to wait, and the best one of all is for God to touch us, to talk to us, and to renew our spirit.. I learned to wait, have you...
Wow it has been over a week again; not much new, it is cold here in SE Georgia, and everyone is sick. I do believe half the Country is sick, the virus must of really traveled. I would think the cold temps in the North would of killed it off, but many of my friends there are sick with the same thing we have here. You need a smile right about now? Well here is Zoie Michelle faring the weather very well. lol
So with cute picture I will close for today, not feeling good at all, keep me in your prayers, have a very blessed week..
Happy New Year, I hope you all survived the Christmas rush, and the new year is upon you, ready or not... We are and have been sick for the new year, I was not ready for this, guess it is the flu, being it has so many aspects, and already ran past the cold time. Keep us in your prayers please, hoping this will pass sooner than later this time. Well do you want to share how your Christmas went? great, I will too. It was different, nothing earth shattering, but a really good time spent with friends and family, and God has been so good to us, and our family is such a blessing. We ate far too much, and traveled many miles to see our children, it used to be they all came here, so what happened...At any rate we made our rounds from St Marys Georgia to Jacksonville, Florida, had a good time with all. So it is a new year with new beginnings, and may we leave the past behind, and move on to today, we cannot undo anything we did last year, but we have control of today.. Use it wisely, let Christ lead you daily, and use his pattern for your life. He has it all written in the Bible, how to live each day, how to grow in Christ, even how to live well with others. Let us all grow into what Jesus wants us to be, so when others look at us, they see him. On that note I will leave you today, with a very Happy New Year and a God bless you real good.
Strange eh, a white bloom on a pink plant... Thought I would share with you, I have never seen this, but I have it, and think it is pretty cool. We had an awesome Christmas, so many blessings that I cannot even remember them all, we went to several churches too and that was special seeing our friends from all over this time of year. Are you doing anything special for New Years Eve? I wanted to find a watch night service, but did not find one in our area, I know some in Jacksonville, but that is too far to travel new years eve, too many drunks on the roads, and not wanting to start the new year off in any mishaps. So that about does it for now. I pray all who read will have a very blessed new year, and put Christ first and for most in you life all year. May God bless you real good.
I just want to say, Good Morning and hope you have a very Merry Christmas..
This is my Christmas Cactus, It is over 20 years old, blooms this time every year,
simply gorgeous;I have took some of its leaves when they break off and have two other plants growing now, I noticed one of them has a white bloom coming out on it, (WHAT) yeah,
not sure what that is about but waiting until it is in full bloom then I will take a picture.
So tell me are you ready for the big day? We do not do much for Christmas since the kids all live in other states, but will go to my one daughters Christmas day, her and her family will be there, we will
take some of the bake goods I have been baking too.
The days are flying by, and seems there is not enough time in one day to get all done. Hope you all have a very blessed Christmas Holiday, and that everyone stays safe, and praise the lord for whom all blessing come from.
Lazy Monday, just kicking it back today, it was a busy day yesterday, Chuck preached at our church last night, such a blessing, I always love hearing him preach, touches my heart every time.. He preached last Sunday in a church in Blackshear, both services, such a great time of preaching, food and fellowship. I was thinking how blessed I am, since I turned my life over to Christ I feel secure that any problem that arises he will help me with it...Let me tell you there is no problem too big for my God to handle, we have had many testings through the years and I know from experience God takes over when you let him, he will get you through whatever you are going through, whether it be a health problem, death of a loved one, financial need, just anything that arises in our life, he will be there to help you through. So pick up your cross and carry it proudly for the lord, Yep, try it you'll like it. Have a very blessed Day, be happy in the Lord, rejoice and again he said rejoice...Philippians 4:4 "Rejoice in the lord always: and again I say, Rejoice".
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.
I am a Born again Christian Woman,Preacher's Wife, Mom to 5 grown children, Nana to 11, and great grandma to 8. I love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul and mind.
I just want to be all he wants me to and to live a simple and very peaceful life serving him daily. I want to be a blessing to those around me, and let my lord shine through me. We use the KJV Bible only, we believe it is the holy word of God, written by inspired men of old, filled and being led by the Holy Spirit of God.
