I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving Day,  I did, we had 16 total throughout the day, 
Got to see my children, my grandchildren and  6 of my great grandchildren, so called me blessed.
One was missing, and he was thought of by all, it just did not seem the same, he was here last Thanksgiving,  I guess we just never know when it is time to meet our maker.

So if you are reading this make sure your home will be in heaven, there is only one way, and that is through trusting Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.  The Bible said we all are sinners, thanks to Adam and Eve, the sin of not obeying God, and it has passed on to all humans through the ages, Jesus paid that sin penalty on the cross shedding his blood that covers and takes away all our sin, so if you never did that, or just think you have, trust him today.  

Only a few days left then December, so have a blessed time in these next few day, and may God bless you real good.

Love and Prayers, Barbara

Where To Begin

2020 was a rough year:

Most of the year was going to doctors and being sick, this was me, then wham my dear husband got sick and we did not understand why, he was bleeding profusely, so we went to the ER, they admitted him, and did a colonoscopy, said they did not see anything, give a blood clotting medicine and after 4 day hospital stay they sent him home.  He still was bleeding some but not as bad, after afew days home the blood rush came again, back to ER same thing, admitted him, and this time did a Endoscopy,  In it they found a 5mm bleeding Ulcer, at the top of his stomach, why on earth they didn't do an endoscopy the first time is beyond me, it may of made a real difference in the outcome. They give him 2 pints of blood and medicines, after 5 days of freezing in his room he got to come home, wonderful can be together again, oh I love that man I was so excited.
When he come home I fixed all his favorite foods but he could not eat much, he still was freezing, I wrapped him in a heating blanket and still he could not get warm, so after 4 days of this I called his doctor and told him and he seen him right away, he was so weak I had to get a wheelchair to get him into the office. The doctor took his temp normal,low but normal, he took his oxygen level, it did not even register, so they brought in a big oxygen machine and it registered 84, well he called for the rescue to take him back to the hospital, they came and took him into ER room, soon as he was settled they said I could go in with him. (Taking a moment because this is so painful) I stayed as long as I could, they admitted him again, and he said he wanted me to get home before dark, I didn't  want to go, but he insisted, and I didn't want him upset set, so I kissed him goodbye and told him I loved him and would see him tomorrow.  They did tests and said he had Pneumonia in both lungs and infection, how when he was only home 4 days, they did another Covid testtoo, and wala it was positive, he had to get it in the hospital, not sure about any of that, but of course I couldn't see him, he just got worse and worse, his oxygen levels would not come up, so after 5 days of fighting and him non responsive for 2 days they said he would not recover, so now they let me see him, I had to have them take the bipap off him, and I prayed so hard he would live without out , but he took a couple deep breaths and just quit breathing, December 23, 2020 how did all this happen in just one month??? Beyond my wildest dreams I never thought I would have to go on without him. 
He was my life, my love my strength for over 60 years, so God took him home, and I do not doubt for a second that he is happy with Jesus.  Now Jesus is my beloved, my love my strength, I could not go on without my lord and his grace. It will be 8 months the 23 of August,, and the lord has taken care of me, I want for nothing physical, or Spiritual, my only want is that I go to be with Jesus and my dear husband.
I am sorry this was so long, and there is much in between untold also, just not that important, here is one of the last pictures I took of him, and I,, at Thanksgiving he cut a tree down in the back, still very vital. Oh what a day makes a difference, love your husband and family you never know when Jesus will claim them.

Wow I seen it was May of last year I had posted,  and could not believe it has been that long; We have another Great Granddaughter,  Her name is Kylie Rose. 

This is us at Christmas with Kylie Rose, she is so precious.
We have had a good year, and now here it is a new year, It has been very cold here for weeks on weeks.  More that all last year.

So that is about it for now, I hope to be on more, lord willing and the Creek don't rise. LOL Here is a little bit of history, in case you do not know already.  We always thought that saying meant that the water in the creek did not get too deep to cross. Well what it actually means is That the Creek Indians don't rise up, all these years I was so misinformed. So that is my tidbit for today. 

Col 1:3 "We give thanks to God and the Father of our lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you"

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:"

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
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. 

1 Thess 5:18
"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you"

3-4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
couple tablespoons of baking soda.
Scrub on with a scrubbing brush
Hope you have a wonderful day, we have rain, amen...our flowers and garden certainly need it, saves me from watering.

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.
