Blessings to all


Mother ..................no sweeter words .....No greater love (with the exception of Christ Love)
I have heard that a mothers love is next to God's love , I so believe this to be true

I am so thankful for the 23 years GOD gave me the sweetest mother that now sings,
and praise's the one whom she taught me about~~ Jesus~~

I think of my mother each day....... this up coming week is the hardest with mothers day and then on May 15 she went to heaven  , some days I have cried, some days I have smiled,  most every day I have brought out from the Golden vault ....
those precious memories that I am so thankful for.

This week I have viewed mothers day cards to only stand  there wishing  I could send my mother
a mothers day card.
There is not a day goes by that I don't think of her and the love she had not only for me
but for all her children .  In my mind I can hear her praying as I see her kneeing beside of her
bed to pray each night ,  during the day you would find her bible in her lap as she read
and studied the word of GOD.
Just this morning I was walking out to come to work, I stopped by my flowers...........and said
mother I know if you are looking down you would love these beautiful flowers, she loved her
flowers and I now have the "I will never have flowers" flowers, I know my mother smiles down
at me.

How blessed am I to have been born to such a wonderful Mother. Everything I am, I owe to her.

. I'm proud to be her daughter and could not have asked for more in a Mother.

To you who gave me the best present ever , the gift of life, I will never forget all of the unconditional LOVE you have given me , all the good times you and I shared .The times that you were my shield, my comfort and my friend., My nurse, My Doctor, My Teacher, You already know that I LOVE YOU with all of my heart, Thank you for always giving me big hugs and lots of kisses. I will never forget you, because the day you left me, you took a big piece of my heart with you. Until we see each other again, I will keep the memories, all the kisses, and all of the warm hugs in my heart for ever. Love you always and forever, your baby


Mother .....No sweeter words
Mother ......No greater Love here below

I have been told that a Mother's love is next to God's love this just has to be so true

How blessed am I to have been born to such a wonderful Mother . Everything I am, I owe to her.as she was my teacher, my best friend .

I feel like that little girl again as I write this, all the times she hugged me, she kissed me,
she was there in the midnight hour when I needed her
in 1966 I know that GOD answered the prayers
of my praying mother as I lay so sick and just days
from death as the doctors told my mother
Her faith was strong
I pray that I can be as CHRIST like
as she walked in  her journey though life

Her strength and wisdom guides me,  her kindness and grace warms me. I have never met another person like her, and know in my heart that I never will - she's one of a kind. I can only wish to have the light that she gave . I'm proud to be her daughter and could not have asked for more in a Mother.

To you Mother ~~ who gave me the best present ever , the gift of life, I will never forget all of the unconditional LOVE you have given me , all the good times you and I shared .The times that you were my shield, my comfort and my friend.You already know that I LOVE YOU with all of my heart, Thank you for always giving me big hugs and lots of kisses. I will never forget you, because the day you left me, you took a big piece of my heart with you. Until we see each other again, I will keep the memories, all the kisses, and all of the warm hugs in my heart for ever. Love you always and forever, your baby Glenna K.

Lord I thank you for the mother you loaned to me ...............

Reflections of Aunt Arelene

Reflections on the life of My Aunt Arlene
Arlene was my aunt, but she was more than that. She was my friend. All of us, who knew Arlene, knew that she was born with Down's Syndrome. Even though this is considered a severe form of mental retardation, Arlene found her niche in life just a much as anyone of the family. She was special from my earliest memories and a special blessing to our family.
As a child, she was my playmate. We played dolls, house, and colored in coloring books as all children do, As I grew up, I watched her continue to do the things we did as children, but there was something else that was special. She did many things for family members to help them and she did them joyfully. She made the beds just as soon as anyone got up. She washed the dishes by hand. She got you a cold drink of water when you were thirsty. She took your coat when you entered the house and she got it for you when you were ready to leave. She kept her bedroom and closet just as neat as any housekeeper in a magnificent mansion. (I always wished my closet was as neat as hers.) These were jobs she considered to be hers and she enjoyed
doing them. No one ever heard her complain. In fact, you might hear her complain if someone else did her job. The Bible teaches us to serve others and Arlene did that well. It also says the Lord loves a cheerful giver and Arlene certainly gave cheerfully to all of her family.
She loved collecting pictures, showing them to you when you came to visit, and telling you who each of them were. Her memory for all of the faces was remarkable. Also, You had better make sure you spoke to her and visited with her a while, or your picture just might DISAPPEAR! She liked to cut paper, too!
She loved to argue with anyone of us and as any of her nieces or nephews will tell you, she could hold her own with any one of us. Her speech might not have been perfect, but she could definitely get her point across to us!
She went camping with Aunt Pauline and Uncle Roy (who were her caregivers for many years), and thoroughly enjoyed being outside in God's beautiful world. Going to church and listening to the beautiful songs about the Lord was a special experience that she always wanted to do. She especially liked hearing Aunt Elsie and the Branham Brothers sing. (Aunt Elsie
also cared for her for many years). She called Friendship Church, her church.
Thinking back over her life, one can see she only needed the necessities and her family to make her happy. She always hugged us when we came to visit, and hugged us when we got ready to leave. She loved us unconditionally and we loved her in return. She continued to be a child in some ways, but she was so, so much more!
The average life span for a Down's Syndrome person is 42 years. Arlene was blessed with 68 years and 11months. Perhaps her life was longer to show others that all of us should live with the unconditional love and acceptance that she had. She didn't need material possessions to make her life full and happy. She loved God, she loved her family, and others and that's the way God wants all of us to live. There are many, many adults who never achieve what she did in her life.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote a poem called "What is Success?" Part of the poem said, "To laugh often and much, To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of a child; To appreciate beauty..." These were accomplishments of Arlene. She was respected by all who knew her. Her life was a successful one even though there were many obstacles in her way.
There's a Bible verse that says, "Suffer the little children to come unto me, for such is the kingdom of heaven. "Arlene was one of God's special children all of her life. We were wonderfully blessed that God put her in our lives. We can now rest assured that she has taken her rightful place in Heaven.
She will be missed by all who knew her.

That first cup of coffee

Each morning
my husband wakes me
after he sits my coffee down
with a hug
oh how I enjoy this first cup of coffee at
my bedside
I told him the other day
his coffee that he brings to me each
morning taste so
his reply was
"its because its brought
with lots of love "
I love how he loves me
he thinks of me before
he thinks of himself
always bringing my coffee
before he gets his

Hugs and Coffee first thing of the morning
just don't get any better

Hope you enjoy your first cup

A great Read

                                               Hurricanes in Paradise    By: Denise Hildreth

Our Ladies bible study group selects a book each year to read during the months of June and July
as we don't meet during these months .  Then in August we get together at a ladies house
to talk about the book , share some enjoyable time together picking out the studies we will do for
the fall, winter and spring sessions and then we eat some of the most yummy food ever those
ladies can cook , as for me I am a stop by the deli on the way from work to pick something up

Back to the book I have read it and it is a book I really enjoyed
I wont go into to detail as some of you may want to read it
If so hope you enjoy the read also

Happy Reading

new life

                   This spring I searched and searched for a birds nest that had blue eggs in it
got everything I needed to have this wreath put together
but the blue eggs
I settled for a beige with specs
after a few weeks
we were on the porch
my husband says
you are going to have to take the nest in  the
birds are trying to sit on the nest :) or
destroy it one
I agreed I would take it down
and get another one
I had almost made it in the garage
looked down at the wreath and
see the nest on top with
none other than four blue eggs
I just couldn't let them die
I told my husband we just had to hang it
back up
I thought of how I wanted the blue eggs
for the front
GOD allowed me the real eggs to
watch over 

                             The picture below shows the cute little birdies hatched out
                                                                  New life 
                                                   those little tiny mouths all open
                                         I have watched from inside how their mother
                                                        feeds them each evening
                                                      they sing at such a young age

I am happy that I got to see the four blue eggs
and the new life they have brought

Sing on little birdies as you will fly away soon
thanks for allowing my wreath to be
your nesting place

One of my favorite places

As you can see by this one picture its a beautiful place to be in the spring time
this is just a small part of the flowers
I wish I would have taken more pictures
at this nursery there are about
twenty green houses
I didn't get  much this day
It was almost their closing time

as I got back in the truck my husband
said I love to watch you look at
all the flowers I can see the enjoyment you
get as you are walking around looking

who but GOD could make those seeds become
so beautiful

a few of my plants I have brought home from
my enjoyment

Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you
