Fantastic Friday

This is the cutest little fellow, had to snap that one. We had a wonderful day with friends. My husband and her husband went fishing the other day, and caught a mess of fish. They invited us over their to have a fish fry. It was scrumptious, she is a wonderful hostess. We planned a new game for us, and just had the best time.
The fires over the Okefenokee Swamp is effecting our area today, the sky is yellow and look at the sun in the photos below, just so breath taking, My husband snapped all these and thought you may like to see a smoke ridden area. There is so much going on all over the Country, fires, floods and just unreal weather in parts. May God bring America back to him, and may we all look to him for his help in these hard times.
Have wonderful evening, and sorry these are coming so late, but had a wonderful busy day. God bless you real good, and do be a blessing. ♥

Wednesday Wonderful Word

A real friend is one who will show you how to turn things over to God...and leave them there.  A real friend is one who will pray with  you when you heart aches. A real friend
shows you the path to happiness in God.

Proverbs 18:24 " A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother."

Do you have a real friend? One who is really the biblical version? Count yourself blessed if you do. I know I have some Godly friends, that encourage me, and let me know that God has everything under control. I love the statement "Give some one a smile, They may not have one of their own" that is so deep...Stop and think of the concept of that statement, you see some one stepping on their lip, could be they lost a loved one, or found out they had cancer, or their husband was mean to them, or kids unruly, could be most anything, may we give them a smile freely, and befriend them, let them feel they are not all alone. We have a great friend in Jesus, and we can cast all our cares upon him, for we know he cares for us, so let us extend that same friendship to all those around us. God bless you today my dear friends, I hope God will lead you to some one who needs your faith, your smile and your hug.

We had a glorious time yesterday. The Spiritual food was so satisfying and so was the physical food, lots of preaching and singing, such a good time of fellowship with God's elect. It blessed my heart to be part of such a Godly day, my cup sure got filled, and running over, It was a long day, but well worth the drive.

Ludowici, GA is about 1 1/2 hours from here, it began at 2 pm, 3 preachers preached and we had some singing from the congregation, then at 4:45 we had a break and a snack and drink, then back and another preacher preached, then supper at 5:45; we ate and fellow shipped with lots of other Pastors from all around Georgia. 7 pm the evening service started, special singing, a pastor and his family sang, and then a couple from the hosting church sang, it was a super blessing. Then we had more preaching, a Evangelist, Joe Barker, I had never heard of him, but he give a glorious and uplifting message.

At 9 pm we left for home. I was glad to see my street sign and hit that dirt road, I know I would be home soon. We slept in this morning until 8 good nites rest I had.

Today is pay day, so not sure if we will go shopping today or wait until tomorrow, I have a doctors app tomorrow so may wait. Tonight is Church and I am waiting for that time, I love being in the house of the lord, with his people, nothing better, I could stay daily there, heehee. Well what are your plans for today.

Have you heard of the fires in the Swamp?  It has burned over 92,000 acres, and getting close to some homes in Baker CO FL. The woods were burning up in Ludowici too the air filled with smoke, we need rain, and we need it today, the fires are so out of control. Pray for this area and all the areas that have problems, flooding in Miss and just all over such tragedy.

♥Hope you have a great day, give some one a smile, they may not have one...♥

Making Every Day Count

Psalm 90:12 "To teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."
 This has such a magnitude of wisdom in these few words, I wonder what God meant when he said number our days. Moses was speaking here, and I believe he was telling us to make preparations for the times to come, not to live just for today, and for things of this life, but to bank up treasures in heaven, where our rewards will be. That we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Hummmm you know many have much knowledge, but few have true wisdom, I really think wisdom comes from God, and is given to use for his glory and to bring others into his kingdom.
So many times God sees us making plans that do not include him, going from day to day without ever making mention of our lord, we say we love the lord, but, do we always put him first, if your like me you have to answer truthfully, no, we get busy with daily routines, and things of this world, and we put God on the back burner until we need him, instead of putting him first and front, he needs to be first in all we do.
May we live in his world, looking to him for all our needs, our answers, our daily lives.
We must put God first to be blessed of him.

We had a wonderful day yesterday at our church, we had one soul saved, and two folks join in membership, it was a blessed time in God. My cup runneth over indeed.
I had a wonderful dinner with my daughter, and got many phone calls and cards and gifts, but this is all so temporal, it is great to get these things, but I must remember who give me these children, who leads these children to love their mom the way they do. All the glory and credit must go to our heavenly father, if not for him, I would be barren, I would not have a child to love, and to care for, that would grow up and be married and be a great adult loving God. Yes let us number our days, for they are few, I was young just yesterday, now today I am old, may God give me wisdom for my old age, and fill my heart each day with more love for him, for my brethren and for my children, my grand children and great grand children. I am a blessed woman, and I owe it all to Christ, he makes the difference in my life.
When I am walking close by his side, and looking to him I am a different person, than when I am one step away from him, I will get angry easy, I do not show love as I should, and quite honestly, I am miserable, I need to be close to the lord, I need for him to guide my every foot step, and to fill my heart with his love and grace. Yep you need that too.
Have a marvellous Monday, it was a great weekend, but the week continues now, let us get busy for our Saviour who give so much for us, may we do a little for him. God bless my friends, and know God is the best friend you will ever have. ♥

Blowing Kisses your way my friends, I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day, and your day is as special as you are.

God give children Mothers to love them, care for them when no one else would, thank your mom today for all she has did for you, let her know you love her. God give you the mom you have so thank him also.
Proverbs 31:27-28
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

Here is a Poem I thought was special, so sharing it with you. I am going to church and then dinner with my middle daughter, I know it will be a fun and precious day.

Mother's Day Prayer

"We only have One Mom, One Mommy,
One Mother in this World, One life.
Don't wait for the Tomorrow's
to tell Mom, you love her"
