GOOD MORNING FROM SUNNY GEORGIA...

It has been a while again since I wrote on my blog, not sure why, but spend time on FaceBook and it seems easier than the blog. But here I am and here I write to catch up. 

Nothing real exciting going on here, we had a very early Spring with lots of beauty all around, the early blooms on flowers and plants; if you never knew or guessed before, I love flowers. Here are a few from my yard and flower bed,





Okay enough flowers for now...

We finally managed to take a mini vacation, over to Lake Seminole, in Sneads, Florida, about 4 hour drive from us in Coastal Georgia. Here are a couple of pictures of the lake and the Dam, it also has a Lock that opens into the Apalachicola River.
Looking out my front door of motel
going fishing
nice mess of fish
the dam

We had a very good and relaxing time, we will go again for a few days, after a few days I am ready for my bed and home.

Well that does it for this time, see ya soon, and may God bless you real good.  Numbers 6:25  "The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:"

BURRRRRRRRR FROM GEORGIA

Good morning on this cold cold morning, our Spring has turned to winter again, it was 29 degrees when I got up at 9 am yeah, the cold front came low, way down to Ocala, FL A friend lives in Bradenton, FL and it was 49 there. I thought winter was over, but.... 
It is nice and warm in here, and we left the water running so water did not freeze, it is 11 o'clock now and almost 45 so warming nicely, will get in the 70's tomorrow, and this will probably be our last cold freeze. I sure hope.
My rose buds look wilted and my banana trees are brown now, ugh, all the early blossoms have ruined.

God has blessed us so much, giving us such a nice home, to keep warm and all the food we can eat, just blesses us over and beyond we could ever want. 

How is your weather? 
How has the lord blessed you this week? 
Share a prayer request with me, I will pray for it.

Keep my friends who are fighting cancer in  your prayers please. Our daughter Vikki, Jennifer, Pat, and Gail.

Strawberries are in in Florida, I love strawberries..Here is a yummy Strawberry Pie recipe

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting counter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 sticks cold butter, cut into small pieces
approximately 4 tbsp ice cold water, plus more as needed
Filling: 
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 (3 oz) package strawberry gelatin
3 tbsp cornstarch
2 pounds fresh strawberries, washed and hulled

To make the crusts:  Combine flour, salt and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and pulse several times to blend. You can also mix the dough by hand. Add the butter to the processor and pulse several times until it resembles coarse crumbs. Alternately, cut in the butter using a pastry blender. Add the ice water 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together and forms a ball.  You may need to add up to 4 additional tablespoons to get your dough to hold together, but be careful not to add too much.  Divide the dough into two equal pieces, flatten into disks, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill the dough for about an hour. 

Have a wonderful Spring;  I am trying to get back to blogging, be patient with me please.

Wow November already, we have had much happen around her since I posted last. Not sure where to start; I am not sure I even want to continue blogging any more, like many other places it has suffered because of FaceBook, with FB being so convenient make a hard competition for other sites. In all things I try to lift the name of Jesus, no matter where I am or what I do, Jesus comes first. Okay let me begin...

I love Fall, all the changing of leaves, and the smell of pumpkin scent candles burning, Loved looking at my Pumpkin my husband carved out for me, it was a fine pumpkin.

Next is a bit harder to describe, the putting to sleep of our 13 year old Golden, our Goldie Girl love us, loved her pond out back, she was the most wonderful fur baby ever, my husband and myself are heartbroken over this, and losing out long time companion, wherever we were she was right there.


I am looking forward to Thanksgiving, having my family come and all the fun and fellowship we have together, not sure how many are coming but know there will be at least 15 at the least. The children like riding in the wagon behind our lawn tractor, playing games, roasting marshmallows later in the evening, just good old time family fun. Love this time of year indeed. So that about does it, hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and God blesses you real good.

"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you"

THE BEAUTY OF SPRING IN GEORGIA

Everywhere you look there are flowers blooming they are simply beautiful.  God certainly give me more beauty to see than I can even take in. From the ones we planted to all the wild ones, like Honeysuckle, and Clematis, wild Jasmine.
Then the ones I planted, the rose bushes, the daffodils, the Amaryllis, Clivia, lily of the valley. Wow I did not realize we did have so many, going to post a few here. So enjoy my view from wonderful Coastal Southern Georgia.













I hope you have enjoyed seeing these as much as I do, I look out my windows and see Hummingbirds and all sort of birds in the feeders, and all these flowers around me, I am blessed. 
Have a very blessed weekend.

SORRY I HAVE BEEN AWAY

Wow it is Spring and everything is all fresh and new, we have did much work here at home and in church services.  "Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding". Proverbs 3:13

We ripped up all our carpet in the living room and hall, replaced it with a hardwood floor, it is so beautiful, and so easy to use a swifter on, no fuss no muss.

We had a food drive at our church and two precious men accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour, that is what the goal in all we do is, bringing souls to Christ, it is why he saved us, and left us here on earth, to tell others just how we were saved.

Well we have number 12 great grand child to brag about, here is Christian Jamar Lewis
born to Reshell and Christopher Lewis on April 2nd, 2016... 6lbs 3oz.

Everything is going well, we have a few leads on the men that killed our son, they will be caught soon, and with sweet relief to his family. The family is all doing good, trusting the lord for our strength and comfort, I have spurts of sorrow, but changes to sweet memories and looking forward to seeing him again, my 3 child Jack Lee Harris, he was a jewel in my purse of children.

Well that about catches me up, hope to post more often, and to read more too, I tell you Facebook spoils us. So til next time, be blessed and do be a blessing.

WHERE TO BEGIN

It has been months since I posted on my blog; Much has taken place since July...

Psalm 73:26 "My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever".

We lost our youngest son in a terrible tragedy; Someone broke into his home and shot him multiple times, it is almost 3 months later and still no conviction, the police said they are pretty sure who did it, but proving it is another story. My heart has a hole in it, and it still does not seem real. I do not feel bitterness, I will forgive who ever did this, I would ask him why?  Jack was a kind soul, would give you the shirt off his back, if he had anything they wanted they should of asked, not kill him for whatever, he did not have a lot of material things, but, he had Jesus.


He was so proud of these fish, and wanted us to see. We love you Jack, maybe he is fishing in heaven, or just talking to Jesus, I know once he seen heaven he would never come back to earth. Rest in Jesus arms precious son.  I claim the prayer David prayed when he lost his son: 
2Sa 12:23  "But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me. I shall go to be with my son too one day"..He made heaven a little sweeter.
Our life has forever changed, a branch from my tree has been broken off, I know God will get us through. His grace is sufficient, completely, forever.



God's grace is amazing.  One day I hope I never have to live again, But God took over all was good. Now we have the sweet memories to keep in our heart forever.

Today is a new day, we will never see yesterday again and tomorrow may never come, but today is a beautiful day God created for us...May we thank him and enjoy every minute of it. Tell someone about Jesus today. Love your family while you can.. Be blessed, Be a blessing.
