About Me

My photo
United States
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 ... Some of my interest are Genealogy , Landscaping, photography , love watching HGTV and now learning to Blog Again keep in mind all my posts are from the heart.. I love to laugh love being around good old friends and family I want enjoy each day as each day is a gift from the Master Creator !! my motto is I remain 29 forever !!!!! :)

we are all children of the

Wishing them more happiness than they feel today

Simple Pleasure 4 28-2011

My simple Pleasure

A photo I took at Easter Sunrise Service
That GOD has allowed me to see
has amazed me since
Easter Sunrise service
to me its more than a simple Pleasure
Its a treasure of a photo
is awesome
if you will see the red  drop of what appears to be like
a drop of blood as this is what caught my attention
then I look and see up in the left hand Conner  above
the trees
eyes looking down on us
to the left of the eyes is
a image of
what I  think
how Jesus might look the image
the images have  made me think that this is the face of GOD
and on the right hand of GOD
is Jesus
this picture
is more than I can put into words
We had came outside the gazebo to
The song says are you  LORD GOD ALMIGHTY
and yes we know that GOD is ALMIGHTY
just has he has  make it known in this picture

May you be blessed  by this picture as I have

All because two people fell in love

Thinking about some new additions to our family this
weekend by marriage .
My thoughts go back
to my
Dad and Mother
all because they fell in love
their nine children have  now expanded
nine children with husbands, wives,
grandchildren, great grandchildren
and great great grandchildren
for a total of seventy two
Many of them my parents didnt get to see
or maybe they have
as the bible says
Hebrews 12:1
iWherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us  

so just maybe they do see us !!!

May you be feel  GOD's  love today

Lent 2011

                                                                 LENT  2011

Many of you may not participate in Lent , I have for many years and many years I have failed
I just couldn't seem to give up whatever it was. 
The last six or so years I have been able to sustain from whatever I had chose to give up, I am not saying by any means has it ever been easy .

With each year that I have been successful I have found that closer walk , the year I gave up Sodas   I drank 6 or so diet sodas a day I could  not pass a soda machine that I didn't think of the Sacrifice JESUS made just for me , most days I  still  have to tell someone about that experience .

The year I gave up Candy I remember being in line at a check out in Wal Mart being surrounded by all
those candy bars and the Lord spoke to me during my wait in line an said that I am so much sweeter than the candy  I give to you the sweetest of the Holy Spirit ,  as I stood I thanked GOD for the sweetest of his spirit

This year I have gave up all potatoes and yes its been hard as I have fixed baked potatoes, Mashed Potatoes for my husband , Just yesterday I brought him home some tater tots he had wanted and for that second I thought I would have just one  then I remember That I am giving them up and I have not long to go
GOD has been speaking to me about the eye of the potato so I have thought about this and what the eye is for in a potato
God I hear him saying to me its all about the eye ~~~new growth~~~~

Potato "eyes" are buds that will start the growth of a new plant. If you leave a potato in

your pantry for a few weeks you will see the new growth begin. You can cut the potato into

sections, each with an eye, and each will grow a new potato plant.

With the eye we can produce more potatoes,
The eye is what germinates into a new potato plant or the roots of a new potato plant.
The potato "eyes" are new roots beginning to grow from the potato

GOD can take the sprouts  of us and make something beautiful  for him  He can  make us New, Refreshed
Knowing this his eye is always on us helping us to grow . to sprout to newer heights , deeper rooted in the faith .

Thank you Lord that your eye is always on me watching out for this Child of  yours that loves you
so , and yet messes up  each day I thank you for your forgiveness

Blessings to all
May you have a wonderful renewed Easter week

tid bit of info

Spring is here
along with this comes
all those little crawling bugs
like ticks
woke around three am
and found a nice
so me being a doctor (just kidding)
tried all the things my husband and
I knew and he was afraid he
would not get the head out with the tweezers
I tried all those things like soap on a cotton ball
a big glob of Vaseline and these
two things were suppose to back the tick out
as it would smother it
Again the Dr comes out in me
and I said I am going to try
this desitin  diaper rash

as its thick and I thought it just
my do the trick
and I was so right
after just a few minutes
it backed out onto the thick
white cream
I just wanted to share this bit of info
as it looks like we will have lots
of ticks
desitin sure worked for me

Hope this helps someone else
Hope you weekend is a great one !

Holy week

I love this up coming week as its Holy week, we will be having  Palm Sunday,

 Maundy Thursday service, then ladies bible study after the service on Thursday, Good Friday,
Sunrise Service, then our regular Sunday worship .

I get excited about EASTER as its brings us new life, refreshing , thirst quenching  life
knowing  that JESUS loved me so much that he would give his life for me .
I just want to Praise him for all that he has done for me and all that he is doing in
my life even in the times that I am so down in the mullly grubs, he loves me and I am
his child ..WOW a child of the Most High King doesn't get any better .

   So thankful that the Tomb is Empty and JESUS is alive forever !!!!!!
May you be refreshed ,renewed this up coming week
Have a blessed Easter

Simple pleasure thrusday April 14 2011

My simple pleasure this week is one that I have longed for around six months oh it
is one that I love so much.
This past Saturday I was off work and this morning it was warm enough
for my husband and I to take our coffee outside for a morning
of sitting on the porch early watching the sun rise and enjoy
the beauty of all the things GOD allows us to enjoy
The picture is one of my front porch last year
Morning coffee with my husband and our doggies along with the birds singing to us a warm morning
watching the sun come up .  Sure doesn't get any better . Simple pleasures sure are awesome

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,

Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,

How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,

How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,

And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.

When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur

And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,

How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,

How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;

Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;

That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,

He bled and died to take away my sin.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,

How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,

How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,

And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.

Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,

And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,

How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,

How great Thou art, How great Thou a

A post from facebook

A friend of mine posted this on facebook a couple weeks ago
and it has been on my heart ever since
as this I have found so true for me
I don't have kids but
I can talk about lots of things
and rarely mention what
JESUS has done for me
so this hit home to me
I wanted to share with you

We are so proud of our children our siblings, our parents, our friends Grandchildren and spouses. We tell people of their accomplishments all the time. We take such pleasure in do ping this but WAIT WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

We have n...o problem telling people about all of the above but when it comes to Jesus we have a big problem.

Christ came to this earth to die for us to take on our sins and be beaten, Mocked spat upon. Christ the best friend any of us has ever had or will ever have. We do not brag about Jesus in the store to friends about what he did for us, I have never had one person come up top me and say” Oh you need to meet my Jesus he is so wonderful ,My life was so blah until He came along now I am filled with Joy.”

No we hear this. “Oh you need to meet my Grandson he is so wonderful .My life was so blah until He came along now I am filled with Joy.” Fill in the Character with anyone you want to still it is not Christ that died for you.

I want to take a moment to say “Let me tell you about my Jesus He came to this earth to take on my sins and die on a filthy old cross after being beaten for me. Oh You have to meet him he is the one that will never turn his back on me ,HE is there when I am sick to comfort me and he is with me when I am sad or in trouble. I wish you would take time to meet my Jesus he is so wonderful Words can’t say how he has made my life complete he is a Blessing I never thought I would have.” If you said that to someone in a store or even in Church which is sad they would think you were nuts. Well Look out world I am as nutty as a fruit cake and Filled up to running over with Jesus.

Please take a moment to ask someone to join you at Church any day but if nothing else on Easter day.

Most people will dress up in a new frock and head out for church on Easter with no more thought about the day other then that of what they have on looking so pretty. Some will stay home claiming they have nothing to wear. My Lord and Savior wore a purple robe yet another mockery of him as this was draped over him in jest. Come out to church if you have to wear dirty old jeans and a torn tee shirt God don’t care and if those in Church Claiming to be Christian ( CHRIST LIKE ) care they need to hit their knees again .

I have lost a lot in this life but My Joy will not be one of the things the devil will take from me he is a snake but we can put him under foot. Every one of you is invited to attend Church with me any day and Especially on Easter What Church? Any Church you can get to My Father is owner of them all if Jesus is preached in them pick one and head out. If you would feel more comfortable at the lake or Archer Park well let me know we all can meet there and have a wonderful time in the Lord. Don’t let the devil Trick you Make it a point to do all you can to be with those that love the Lord on Easter to thank him for all he has done for you and me and your neighbor you hate and your ex and so on and so on I pray to hear good reports. GOD BLESS US ALL

Thanks Tenny for your message

Blessings to all
