About Me

First let me say that I am a born again christian and try to follow what JESUS would have me do ..I fail him daily, yet he picks me up and says try again my child !!!! knowing that he is closer to me than the air I breathe !that I am just dust designed by my Redeemer!! Remember when reading my blogs they are not wrote correct but from the heart ! I need lessons in writing correctly and making these interesting. I grew up in a small town and everyone knowing my family to come to a state with my husband that I knew almost no one I will say after 23 years its still hard ...I love to go back to KY as its where most of my family are I come from a large family of 9 me being the 9th ...

Easter ---my favorite time of year drawing near


 my favorite time of year

of all the other days Easter means more to me

 love CHRISTmas and the birth of JESUS


Easter brings the new beginnings

new life, the renewing , the freshness of

all things come to life near Easter

just as JESUS brought to us

the new life by the shedding of his precious blood

it just makes me feel so alive

I am like a kid at Easter yep this old gal

loves to

color eggs as you know they taste better

at Easter

each year I try to give up something for Lent

and in the giving up

the closeness

I feel

reminds me of an old song

draw me nearer , nearer to the cross

that is my prayer

draw me nearer , nearer to you JESUS

each day 

Without Easter,

there would be no hope of heaven.

Without the hope of heaven,

there would be no repentance,

no personal transformation,

no attempt to follow biblical principles.

Without Easter,

the world would be in chaos

and darkness.

Jesus’ death and resurrection

means we can be reborn,

to live better, to do better,

to shine light into the shadows.


Happy, Happy Easter.

(Author unknown )

May you too feel the renewing , refreshing of
this year

Simple Pleasure Thursdays 3-24-2011

My Simple Pleasure
this week

Last night it was storming,
our dog is so afraid of storms that
my husband has to take him to
bed and build him a fort of pillows to
surround him 
with it storming my husband and I take
Champion to bed
and we just lay there and
have a little talk
I look over and see
our peaceful and
comforted he feels with just
my husband letting him
lay on his pillow as he feels my husbands touch
such a simple pleasure to lay and talk and comfort
our baby doggy

thinking about this simple pleasure I have to say
it reminds me of wanting to feel
that kind of  protection and comfort from our heavenly father
Just knowing his hand is always on us
how awesome !!!

Lent 2009

LENT and giving up soda's by Glenna Marcum-Reynolds on Sunday, March 29, 2009 at 11:30am

I just wanted to write a little bit about Lent  this year as most of you know it started
Feb.25 and I choose something this year that has been the hardest for me I have gave up all soda's (which I drank 6 to 8 diet ones a day )and so far so good
with this choice I didn't know that every time I passed a Soda Machine, Carton of Soda or looked in my Fridge, just how much I would be reminded of the sacrifice and the Forty days that JESUS was in the wilderness praying ,each time I have just said  thank you JESUS for the ultimate sacrifice you gave just for me
In years past I have given up different things but this year it truly has been a hard one and I have about 15 more days to go so for the next fifteen days I know it will be just as hard if not harder as it was this past Friday I went to Subway ordered a drink and looked at the soda machine and thought OH NO , NO water how tempting this was for me , then I looked a little closer and saw the water tab and on this day I had to look a little closer at my walk and how I can be seen as a better witness for CHRIST .. you see the drinks were all labeled bright and pretty very appealing to the eye and the water that was  so pure was such a   small tab not bright didn't stand out like the others ..the purest item on the drinks was almost not seen
this made me think how we as Christian should stand out and be Bright not dull or stay
I just wanted to share this experience thus far ....

( I had posted this on facebook in 2009 and wanted to share this with blogspot. )

Blessings to you all

Love ................


I had wrote this some time back however never
posted it

Lunchtime today I was reading in my bible study and came across this and had to share it

A husband and wife got into a quarrel and the wife grabbed two pieces of paper and they were to write down all the faults each other had and she would write and look up and then her husband would write and this went back and forth both writing and then they exchanged papers the wife began to cry she had wrote all her husbands faults she could think of and all that was on his paper was I love you , I love you , I love you ....

Thought this was sweet  of the Husbands love for his wife and how in anger we will say things we wish they had never been said
This husband was showing the wonderful example of love for his wife ..............I love you , I love you ,
I love you ,
I must remember this in times of anger .....the I love you's
Many Blessings to all

Life..simple life.....

Reading many posts
I see that many people
are living
the simple life
doesn't have to be full
of riches
as riches cant buy happiness
nor can it buy us one extra minute of life .....

Simple life
gives us happiness
no worries as to how
our big or beautiful our homes are
not trying to keep up with the "Jones"
just clean, pure, simple living

In simple living
I have found that the birds
are beautiful music of the early mornings
Nothing no better than coffee on the porch
listening and watching the birds

that Beauty surrounds me each
just looking at GOD's creation
trees, flowers, sun, sky
so much beauty in a simple

just look at all the beauty in simple things
as you drive, walk , or just sit
 look at it all
I want to
be the sponge that
tries to soak all the beauty of the simple life
and give
the praise for allowing me this simple beautiful life

Thanks be to GOD for all his beauty

Photos are not mine

Glimpse of heaven as told to me

        In January my brother was given a glimpse into heaven
and as he had them call me to come to see him before
he was shipped to a bigger hospital
I walked in and he looked at me as" he said
don't ever stop praying and going to church its real
I have saw it "
The lights of heaven were so bright and
the beauty I just cant tell you
JESUS was so bright I could not see his face as  
the lights were so bright  its just all so beautiful
ever doubt !!!
I said Buggs you know , you were like John on the isle of Patmos
and he said I ain't John wasn't on no island I am Everett Jr
but I saw what I saw and don't ever doubt it
I told him I knew it was real .
He then told of the people he saw of our family.

February 11th 2011
I stopped by his house on my way from work
as I did every evening .
I got to read some in the bible to him
and talked of what I had learned in
bible study about the little shepherd boy David and how
David had prepared his heart for GOD also told him
That I would have not wanted to have waited twenty two years
before leaving the fields as a shepherd
of course Buggs I said you know this as you have studied
for many years the bible
and I sang Jesus loves me and Buggsey
asked him if he wanted me to pray before I left and with the
squeeze of two fingers I knew he wanted me to pray
I said a little prayer and told him I would see him in the morning
I feel blessed to have got to talk pray, read the bible to him
just before he entered the gates
I just have to say thank you GOD for allowing me to
be the one to share your word  with  him before
he saw you .
he got the real glimpse
about a hour later
he was walking on the streets of Gold
with his saviour
to all  that are reading in times of doubt
my friend
believe me
my brother saw it and said never doubt as its
REAL !!!!!

Buggs wrote this  some months ago
In the beginning GOD created heaven, earth and moon
this was all apart of his great plan
Now Scientists say the universe was made
by a giant explosion
some even believe this is true
but let me tell your children my GOD
lit the fuse !!!!(EMJ)

My heart breaks but I know he is the happiest he has
ever been
 he is free to dance, sing, Praise GOD
and his pain free
I know his mansion is a sight to see
he was such a humble brother
he would say this to me often when we would talk
I am not only your biological brother but your brother in Christ
I would always respond you are my 2 in 1
I love you my two in one brother
biological brother and brother in Christ

One of his favorite songs

Journey of Faith Friday 3 4 2011

Redeemed, Anointed, Transformed
Our ladies bible study just finished a seven week
Study of David , this study the devil started attacking from day one
and I knew that I was going to learn alot as I studied
about David and how his heart was a prepared heart
and his love for GOD , as he always sought GOD in all that he did
I think of David as the little shepherd boy that was chose to be
king and for twenty two years he remained just that a shepherd boy
now thinking if GOD had choose me a Queen I would have wanted
to be treated with all the royalty that I was intitled to have
how many of us would want to go back to our normal days activity
when we were the king or queen ?
David did everything right
until he wanted to bring the ark of GOD back
then he took Bathsheba and tried to hide
his sins in so many ways that it lead to murder
and GOD took his son
David asked GOD in Psalms 51
for forgiveness
1 Have mercy on me, O God,

according to your unfailing love;

according to your great compassion

blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash away all my iniquity

and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I know my transgressions,

and my sin is always before me.

4 Against you, you only, have I sinned

and done what is evil in your sight;

so you are right in your verdict

and justified when you judge.

5 Surely I was sinful at birth,

sinful from the time my mother conceived me.

6 Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;

you taught me wisdom in that secret place.

7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;

wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

8 Let me hear joy and gladness;

let the bones you have crushed rejoice.

9 Hide your face from my sins

and blot out all my iniquity.

10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,

and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

11 Do not cast me from your presence

or take your Holy Spirit from me.

12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation

and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,

so that sinners will turn back to you.

14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,

you who are God my Savior,

and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.

15 Open my lips, Lord,

and my mouth will declare your praise.

16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;

you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.

17 My sacrifice, O God, is[b] a broken spirit;

a broken and contrite heart

you, God, will not despise.

18 May it please you to prosper Zion,

to build up the walls of Jerusalem.

19 Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous,

in burnt offerings offered whole;

then bulls will be offered on your altar
I have learned many many things but most of all that
we need to prepare our  hearts daily for GOD
and to seek him and what he has for us
I know beyond a shadow of any doubt
that GOD is right by my side
I say don't ever doubt its
real as my brother got a more than a glimpse into heaven
If anyone reading this has ever had any doubts
let me tell you
as my brother said to me
"don't ever stop praying or going to church
Its real I have saw it and its beautiful but
I don't have the words to describe the beauty of the lights and all the things I have saw"


I am linking up with Journey of faith friday you to join by linking with Amber below
