A few of my favorite things

I was outside last night and I thought I would snap a few pictures of a few of my favorite things
Things I love about being outside and to sit on the porch and enjoy the beauty of nature . These are from my neck  of the woods
 The view from where I sit
 another view
 a extra rocker for anyone to come sit a spell
 Lantana the butterflies and humming birds love this plant
 John F Kennedy rose
 A side view
A view of blooms

 This is just a few of my favorite things that while I porch sit before work or late evening
I so enjoy .  I must soak all this beauty in as it will soon be to cold to sit out and the flowers
will be gone .  To each of you enjoy those blooms and nature each day

              Giving Thanks to GOD this week for ..............

3946     Monday ~~~ for this wonderful day to start fresh !!!
3947      For this poem I found

I am thankful for everything I have experienced

In this life of mine

For in all I have found

That in His Word-the answers I find

I am thankful for all the tears I have cried

For they have taught me to appreciate laughter

They have given me the ability to see the

The joy that comes after

Through my tears I have come to know

His Holy Spirit in my life

How He is always there

And comforts through the strife

I am thankful for the storms I have encountered

Knowing that the rainbow is at the end

Realization that they are only temporal

That with time all will mend

I have learned that I don’t need to be strong

For GOD supplies the strength for me

He shoulders my burdens

Regardless of what the circumstance may be

I am thankful for all the relationships

For the good and yes, for the bad

For they have given life to my emotions

An appreciation of what I have had

My most valuable relationship

Is that with Yahweh, my Father

I know that I can trust Him

As I can trust no other

I am thankful for the pain I have known

It has given a compassion for the suffering

An ability to reach out to others

An appreciation of little things

I understand the greatness of  GOD's love

And the pain He has suffered for me

How He endured all things

So that I could be set free

I am thankful for the hunger and thirst

That I have had to go through

I appreciate having food before me

And sharing it with others too

He has given himself as my food and drink

To make sure that I was fed

His Blood shed for my drink

And His Body broken for my bread

Most of all, I am thankful for His Grace

For the provisions that it brings

How it has provided for

Me in all things

1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High

shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD,
He is my refuge and my fortress:
my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,

Who but GOD !!!

                              Tell me who but GOD could do such things as this.............
                              As I was driving to work this morning I was sitting at a red light
                              looking at the sky how beautiful it was .
                              I drove on up the road to find a spot to pull off and capture this picture
                              I thought who but GOD could make such a beautiful sky, not only the sky
                              HE can walk from cloud to cloud and take his finger tip and make this beauty
                              I am privileged to see ..
                              My thoughts turned to who but GOD could take these seeds
                              and make something beautiful to view or eat.

                             Who but GOD .................................................

                              May you feel GOD surrounding you at this moment

Sorry that my blog is not formatting right bear with me as I try to fix it.

Follow up from yesterdays post Heaven and Hell

I Posted yesterday would I still be a Christian if there were no heaven or hell ......................
Each time I think of this my mind goes to some family remembers that saw into
heaven . took a walk there and came back to tell others . I just had to share this with you
as its was laid on my heart to do so.

First my nephew Bill he flat lined and died on the way to the hospital about four years ago
He told everyone he what he saw and felt , he said it was like being wrapped in a blanket of love and peace no pain he saw his sister Kim that had passed on about 18 years when he had this experience.  He told everyone of this feeling and how GOD is that blanket of love and peace, he said mom when its time for me to go don't cry its wonderful to feel that feeling I will never be afiard  to die as its wonderful !!!

This year in January my brother had a out of body  experience he had a wonderful faith in GOD for many years on is journey of life.   He told me to never doubt its real as he told me of seeing JESUS and tried to describe him and the beauty of his brightness, he said there is just not words for the beauty that I saw . He saw many loved ones and told me about each one . Just like he told me don't doubt its real I have saw it  don't stop praying and don't stop going to church .
I pray if I were to ever doubt that heaven is real ...........may I always remember the blanket of love and peace and the real things that both Bill and Buggs talked about .

The following was wrote by my brother Buggs some time back






I feel that both Bill and Buggs lived their dash well in the few years they spent with us on life's journey !!!

I sure do miss all them but heavens sweeter with my family there ........
May you never doubt that its real
Blessings to all

IF there were no HEAVEN or HELL

Today I am joining Amber at Journey of faith ~~Special Edition ~~
Her question today was If there where no heaven or hell would I still be a christian

I  have thought about this for just a few minutes after reading Amber's Article and YES
I chose number
 1.I absolutely would still be a Christian....

I absolutely  would still be a CHRISTian!!!!
I have this Joy way down deep in my inner most being , my soul.
that tells me to do good for evil , to help others, to go , to do , to tell others of this goodness
that I feel  way down deep in this soul of mine.
 The JOY, LOVE, PEACE,  that I can not hide , even on days when I am so far off the course for living the right kind of life and being the right kind of example that I should be I still come back and ask GOD to forgive me thankful for his forgiveness
This is so hard for me since I know beyond a shadow of doubt that there is a HEAVEN and there is a HELL...

In the rough and tough world we live in with all of the crime,and bad things that can happen to anyone of us at anytime
 ( I have had to lay on the floor with a gun pointed at me during a bank robbery glad to know that GOD watched over me during this time when others were so evil)  ...yes I pick the good over evil !!
Thankful to know that GOD is my saviour and king

Grasshoppers or Giants what will we be

Grasshoppers or Giants 
Thinking about the little grasshoppers 
along with the giants 
in Numbers 13
The Lord spoke to Moses
and told him to send men 
to search the land of Canaan 
what they found was a land of large 
fruit , milk and honey 
the men said they are so big they are giants compared to us 
thinking upon this since yesterday 
how if in our day we too would have been scared,
with GOD helping us as a  grasshopper 
we too can be giants for the LORD
we can take that stand to be a witness to tell others 
of the love , share what GOD has done for us 
we are in a battle of being that grasshopper or trying to be  the giant

I thought of this song
Little David wasn't afraid he shook off his armor
and was clothed with the power of GOD
I must try to be that giant

A grasshopper going to try to be a better Giant

3856   Monday ~~for this day !!!
3857   My extra day off
3858   Mowing and weed eating this evening also watering my flowers = time to spend alone with me and GOD in nature ...reminds me of the song

I come to the garden alone,

While the dew is still on the roses,

And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,

The Son of God discloses.

And He walks with me, and He talks with me,

And He tells me I am His own,

And the joy we share as we tarry there,

None other has ever known.


He speaks, and the sound of His voice,

Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,

And the melody that He gave to me,

Within my heart is ringing.

And He walks with me, and He talks with me,

And He tells me I am His own,

And the joy we share as we tarry there,

None other has ever known.


I'd stay in the garden with Him,

Tho' the night around me be falling,

But He bids me go, thro' the voice of woe,

His voice to me is calling.

And He walks with me, and He talks with me,

And He tells me I am His own,

And the joy we share as we tarry there,

None other has ever known.
 This song was one of my favorites even as a child ..I still love it ....nothing like being in the garden with GOD ...and I can sing really loud no one can hear me with the mower .....

Simple Pleasure Thursday 8-4-2011

     My Simple Pleasure

This week I had a early Morning meeting
as I was driving I could see the  beginning of the sunrise
I just had to pull off and watch
it come up
as I sit there
watching GOD bring
such beauty to life before
I just was in awww with the sunrise
as  you can see it was sure
worth pulling off the road to watch
I only had my phone camera
so the pictures aren't the greatest
quality but you will still
see the beauty of the morning

                                                                    the first capture
                                                      The Sun starting to show up
                                                    Shining a little more
The beauty of a sunrise
is my simple pleasure
