HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY. I thank the Lord for the freedoms that are still ours in this Great Land. AMERICA!! I love the freedom of religion and the freedom of speech. These freedoms allow me to worship my Lord and Saviour, go to church, fellowship with other believers, teach my Sunday School class, read my BIBLE and WITNESS to others on the street and in public places about the saving grace of Jesus Christ. I thank the LORD for those that have so valiantly given their lives protecting me & guaranteeing my rights to these freedoms and all the other freedoms that we ALL hold SO dear and sometimes maybe take too much for granted. We are the Home of the FREE because of the BRAVE. THANK YOU ~ TROOPS and YOUR FAMILIES ~ for the sacrifices you have made in my behalf. GOD BLESS AMERICA! Until We Meet Again...
Well, time is certainly getting away from us all. It is SO hard to comprehend that a school year has come and gone. But that is exactly what has happened. We have those in the family and in our church family that have graduated from high school or college. It is such a pleasure to see these young people go on with whatever the Lord has called them to do. We have watched most of them as they have grown up right in front of our eyes. It will be a continued blessing to watch them over their young adult lives as the Lord leads them in endeavors that glorify HIM. There is also another graduation that is extremely important to our family. G-BABY'S!! Yes, the G-Baby has graduated from Pre-School. WooHoo! Of course, that just lets this Gan-Gan realize how old she is getting and how time IS flying!! :) We are SO proud of our little Graduate! She did so well and loved every moment of it. We want to send out CONGRATULATIONS to all our graduates. Especially YOU, G-Baby. May the Lord watch over you and call you to do something extraordinary with your life. May HE bless ALL of YOUR endeavors. Until We Meet Again.
Romans 12:12 says, "Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer."
We rejoice in the knowledge that our hope is accompanied by expectation ~ the expectation that He will do what He says He will do. Almighty God is holy and cannot or will not lie. Our hope or expectation is sustained thru Him and we should rejoice therein. I Thessalonians 5:16 "Rejoice everymore." He IS our hope! "Tribulation worketh patience", according to Romans 5:3. We develop the virtue of patience by way of great misery or distress, or in other words ~ trials and storms ~ that we experience in our lives. With the grace of our Lord, we can endure the storms of life and learn this great virtue. Finally, we as Christians, should pray diligently ~ with care and persevering as I Thessalonians 5:17 tells us, "Pray without ceasing."
Thank Thee, Father, for the great expectation we have in Thee, for supplying Thy grace as we learn patience, and for the open line to Heaven. Until We Meet Again...
I'm in my mid-fifties(starting on the other side of mid, as of now.) I am a Mother and an adoring Gan-Gan. My daughter and granddaughter are the apples of my eye. My interests are far and wide. I love teaching Sunday School to little kids at my church--it is so rewarding. Family is everything, both kin and church family. What fellowship is to be had with both!! I am a girlie-girl who loves everything "PINK". My daughter tells me that I live in the "Original Barbie House" because of ALL the pink. And oh, did I mention my love of ROSES? Everything has got to have a rose motif on it. I love people and am concerned for their souls. My mission is to tell others about the Saving Grace of My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the shedding of HIS precious blood for all those that will believe. God loves HUMAN BEINGS!!! My own "Life Verse" is Romans 8:28- "For all things work together for the good of them that love God, to them who are the called according to HIS purpose." I want to be used according to His Precious, Perfect will for my life. My desire is to share my life's journey with YOU. What a pleasure it's going to be.

Life is Full of Wonder
Life is a wonderful journey, filled with all sorts of ups and downs and in betweens. There's always that very interesting person to meet right around the corner, or maybe it's a "just can't remember where I put the thing" kind of day. My blog is just that, life's little stories, no matter how quaint or unconsequential they be, you'll hear about it here. We can laugh, cry, or just muse about the day's events together. Yes, life is full of wonderful little happenings. I, for one, am interested in them and in YOU, my dear reader. Hence, this blog is born. Let us start our journey together, shall we?
