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 ...

Last night as my husband and I were in bed
with the windows open listening to the rain
my curtains began to blow

as I thought of this I told my husband
I am glad to know the maker of the wind

This was my thoughts
Wind and faith in GOD
we can feel the wind and see the effects of it
just as we can feel GOD's presence and see the evidence
of GOD in our lives
words of this song came to mind ,
 I can feel His sweet Holy Spirit, a dwelling deep within,
sometimes its so gentle and sometimes its like
a mighty rushing wind

I am so glad to know that presence in my life
I pray others will see this presence in my life
each day 

Wishing you a spirit filled day

Hearts for home ~~joining for the first time today 6 23 2011

                               I am joining Gae at hearts for home today for the first time
                                 This below is what Gae ask us to do each week
("In my weekly 'Hearts for Home' post I am encouraging myself and others to commit to thinking about what 4-6 things we can do each week to bring our thoughts, prayers and actions to keeping our 'Hearts for Home'.)
I began to think of the 4 -6  things I could do this week
here are the things I will try to do
  1. I work until 6 pm each night other than Sunday , I am going to try to keep the laundry folded and put away . ( I am good about doing laundry but not good about putting it away )
  2. Try to spend more time in the word(I am such a slacker in studying the word Forgive me Father) and also I will pray for the bloggers on this site
  3. Each person that I come in contact with  ~~to encourage them ~~its so meaningful to do this
  4. Thank my husband for the little things he does each week ~~wash dishes  etc
  5. Finish spring or now summer cleaning our bedroom
  6. Pray for the new pastor we will have this Sunday

Witness at the Races

This past weekend our family was together enjoying the time together of sharing , laughing, just as most family's do when they get together.
My nephew was telling about a gentleman we all knew that had began racing and wanted my nephew to help out, My nephew said he thought there is no way as I am so busy that I have  no time for this as much as I love racing (due to his job being self employed he stays so busy) . His girlfriend said there must be a reason for this and told him she thought he should do it .  He then tells of that first night he was at the races  they had  the gentlemans his shiny red Porsche down at the area for the race and a young man comes up he looked like he had spent his last five dollars to get in the gate, he asked if he could just look at the car , the owner of the car says son get in there sit down and look all you want.

The young man gets out after looking and says sir this is a pretty awesome car you have , the owner of the car said son that necklace you have around your neck is pretty awesome too.

  My nephew said it looked like a dime store cross necklace, when the owner of the car said this to the young man his face changed to a radiant glow .
We can witness in many ways and as the owner of the car told the young man what he had  (the Cross)was more awesome
My nephew said it brought him to tears that night and did again as he was telling it and he said he knew it wasn't about money and how much you had but how you can change someones life just by the simplest of  things My nephew said this changed him that night and now he had his answer he would take the time to help when he can  ......
I am sure this young man will remember how the owner thought his necklace was something awesome too ......

I pray that I will Witness or encourage someone today


This week in my garden June 21 2011

I am joining this week in my Garden
you to can link up with us and show off your
garden  by clicking on the above link
Walking out this morning I was greeting by this first
daylillies of summer

                                       Along with the purple Oxalis also known as Shamrock.  It is very low maintenance and doesn't require a lot of watering.  You can neglect it for a week and it will still put on a show.  I love the light purple  flowers over dark purple leaves.  This is a tough plant and it doesn't stop blooming.  . This plant I called Greta as my cousin mailed me the bulbs this year .
                                                     another day lilly yellow shasta

                                          Love those dew kissed flowers .......
                                                  My hosta  was showing its face this morning also

Simple Pleasure Thursdays June 2 2011

This morning I already have a had a great morning , I got up and got ready for work and decided to take
My breakfast outside . 
Having breakfast outside with my wonderful coffee early makes for a great morning
nothing like being outside , loving nature and the beauty that surrounds me
the sunrise coming up this morning Thur the trees, shining down on me this early morning while the dew is
still on everything . 
(I forgot about the dew and sit in a dew cover chair but that didn't spoil this wonderful
pleasure .)
My back yard that I mowed last night love my view .
I also had company for breakfast our outside dog

Breakfast outside rocks !!!!

I truly loved this simple pleasure that GOD
allowed me to enjoy early this morning
Thank you GOD for your blessings on me

I am linking up with Dayle at Simple Pleasures
