Thankful Jar 2014

The above pictures are of my 2014 thankful jar that I
emptied tonight new years eve .
I unfolded each little note some on newspapers, receipts.
Whatever was handy for me to record my words of encouragement,  thankfulness, simple little things that brought a smile to me or someone.
 I wanted to share some of the little notes

January 7th our 25th anniversary we had made plans on where we would go, however winter brought us Snow and Ice with a cold low of -7 degrees .  Plans changed we stayed in where we were warm.

Feb. 6th   hearing my sister laugh at something I said  for the first time since losing her only son
If I can make her smile or laugh for one minute that is one less tear .  My heart breaks for her and Bill.

Several times this year I have been given clothes, shoes from Lisa,  Barkers and Missy for each gift  I am thankful and blessed.

May September and October I traveled to my home town to spend a few days with my family
we visited friends  and family .

Glad I got to visit with Marcia in May and September.  Her hugs and saying to me you just don't know how much I have missed you ....
Rip ...Marcia ....

Dec 17th.  I received a text from my co worker that brought me to tears ...good tears..
humbled to know God used me to uplift someone 2 days before as they shared with her today. Thank you Lord for allowing me to be uplifting to some one

Notes cards flowers gifts from my secret pal at church .

For reaching my first weight loss goal April 9

Many sweet words from my husband

Picnics of Vienna sausage and crackers

Lunches at the park just my husband and I

Walks at 8 am during warm months ...prayer walks ..I was praising God as I walked one morning not knowing anyone had saw my hands up .  This lady stops me as I meet her and said can I ask you were you Praising God back there and I said yes....she said you blessed me .... tears that God would allow me to bless someone ...we never know who we are uplifting by just raising our hands in Praise to God .

Try a thankful , blessings jar

Multitudes on Mondays~~Thankfulness~~ Contiunes

Multitudes on Monday 

For several years I have joined in this

it has sure gave me a more sincere appreciation 
for the little things that I would have other wise passed by 
I have found its in the little things that give us 
the most blessings

I stopped posting each week in April 2014 this would have been week 205
  below 6948 was were I left off
however I haven't stopped just that I record things I am thankful for  each night in my

Trying to count the multitude of blessings is like standing on the shore trying to count each grain of sand

Giving thanks To GOD

For Monday a new beginning of a week, on this day I was blessed to have received clothes that just fit  from someone that didn't have a clue what I had asked for last year in my journal, I had listened to a podcast last June 22 2013 and Joyce Myers was talking about how GOD cared in the little things our wants and our needs and to make a list of both pray  ask GOD  and watch when they come ...I PRAISE GOD that
he cares about the little things .......
Tuesday ~~

So for today I  just had to share that I hadn't forgot to give thanks just not blogging each week 
maybe I will pick it back up

I am using a thankful jar also that I will take out New Years eve or Day and read all the things 
that I have been blessed with this year 2014
I will post those things so if I lose the little thankful pieces of paper I will have them here on 
blogger . 

Christmas Lights (oh what a feeling)

Each night during Christmas 
my husband knows the love for the lights being on when I come home from work.
I open the door and step inside to have 
the warmest, coziest feeling ever 
I sit and enjoy the lights , no Tv, No music 
just quiet time 
oh and the candles have our little house 
scented with the smell of Christmas 

                                        View from the outside porch and looking inside
                            Had to share the warm, cozy feeling I get with these little lights
                                                   oh so simple oh so wonderful
                                                           Home Sweet Home

Years Passed~~Kindness Recalled

My sister in law called  to share the good time they had today at
A little place called fluty Lick .
Fluty Lick is buried deep in the Ky mountains.

Each year at this time they have church on the
Cemetery and dinner on the grounds
I have many memories of going to this annual Church meeting
 Family and friends came in from many states and still do.

My  sister in law  wanted to share what one of the 8o years young man told
of the kindness of my dad
When this man got married he told my dad he didn't have a place to live
My dad being kind hearted and having a extra house he offered it to this man
at no charge until he could find some where to live .
 Dad said all I  ask is you take care of it like it was yours and keep
it clean . You will have  free gas and water in the house , the man recalled that cold winter
and how that house had kept them so warm that he would ccome in from the zero temperature and be sweating in just a few minutes . He lived there until he built him a house which was a lengthy time
My heart was warmed by the kindness remembered after all these years
as my dad has been gone almost 40 years

My dad had a big heart and was sure a giver
I suppose that's why Mother and Dad never let us goes without we always had what we needed most we wanted and more

Thoughts On my walk Today 8-16-14

Today as I was walking before work 
These thoughts came to my mind 
about life and our journey 
the road has many curves along the way 

                                                 Sometimes life is just like muddy water
                                       We have many bridges to cross along the way
                some times we think grass is always greener on the other side
                                                             but when we look
                                   at the whole picture Mine is just as  green or greener
                                        Then we have roads going to the left and right
                                               or we can take the path of hills and trees
My thoughts as I walked this morning 

Summed up its my Journey 
no two directions are ever the same 
and I am never alone

Simple Pleasures

Soak it up

What's Wrong with this picture? ??

This picture paints a foggy cold morning 
For my three mile walk 
Being July 25th I think it 
Should be warm at 8 am 
Right ??

Simple Pleasure Friday

I love eating outside the food is more yummy.  Today's plain tuna and lettuce with crackers tasted so much better outside.
I may have only got to be out for 15 minutes
those 15 minutes I sure savored. 

Get out side soak you up some happiness with a little picnic

The Gift of a Seiko Watch

Way back In the 70s my dad bought me this cute little Seiko watch.
it had been in my jewelry box for many many years.
After taking another watch to have a battery put in. I asked the jeweler if he could repair the watch I had so long. He said bring it in and I will fix it.  After years of not working my Seiko now works

Years ago
I am sure I saw it and probably Aggravated       my dad until he bought it for me or maybe it was a gift for valemtines birthday or Christmas I cant seem to remember. I would like to think that it was a gift versus me aggravating him to buy me something as I always did.

Thanks Dad for this gift that is working approximately  39 years later

Posting from my smart phone
Hoping this posts correctly

To the moon and back ? no

It was a rainy lunch date  yesterday (7-18-2014)  with my husband
I came out to find he had parked closer than when we went in
I open the door and say" I love you for parking closer"
His reply was do you know how much I love you
My reply was to the moon and back right ?
He replied no...... to the stars .....the stars cant be measured like the moon can ....
So sweet this husband God allowed me to have .

Stars and love ....

Love you to the stars CWR

Roadside Beauty

The first time I passed by here 28 years ago 
I thought this was a most beautiful place ever
some days  I passed there would be lots of cattle grazing 
I have wanted a picture of this area since I first 
saw it 
I finally had my husband stop and 
let me capture this beautiful place 

The sky seemed so blue this July 4th 
I hope all of you see the beauty in 
these pictures

As I have

Simple Pleasure

There used to be a simple pleasure party that 
I linked up to each week I miss this little party 
reading every one's  pleasures
I decided I would party 
alone with my simple pleasures

none other than 
sitting in this white rocker 
on our porch 
love porch sitting I think its a country thing 

grab you a chair and enjoy 
some porch sittin...

                                         May you be blessed with simple things

Walking the other night as my co worker ran 
I see her running back toward me 
not knowing what was wrong 
She brings this little bird over that 
she had reached down from her run and picked up 
thinking the bird was hurt 
the little bird just sit there in her 
hand for a few minutes then it flew away 
This picture made me think 
of our GOD always  holds us in 
the palm of his hand 
sometimes we move out of his hand 
but knowing that GOD 
never leaves us 
even though we move 

                         Thank you Lord for sheltering and holding me in the palm of you hand

Heavenly Sunlight

Tuesday Morning as I was on the track early before work 
I just had to share these pictures with you 
the beams of sunlight filled the walking track 
reminding me of the song 
"Heavenly Sunlight"
Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight,
Flooding my soul with glory divine:
Hallelujah, I am rejoicing,
Singing His praises, Jesus is mine.

                                                      In the bright sunlight, ever rejoicing,
                                                     Pressing my way to mansions above;
                                                     Singing His praises gladly I’m walking,
                                                     Walking in sunlight, sunlight of love.

This day of walking as each day 
I spend it in prayer and trying 
to listen to what the Lord has to say 

Thankful for the Heavenly Sunlight !!

Alien or ??

The sunshine was beautiful this morning 
as I arrived at work I thought I would 
capture this beautiful bright sunshine
after taking the pictures below I come in 
and look at them to see with one I would post
and if you look at each picture below 
from top to bottom 
you will see this blue dot 
and notice how it 
moves in each picture 
as though it is flying 
If anyone can 
let me know what the blue dot might 
be or if they have saw this in their pictures 


I have tried many different things though the years with 
our poor soil to raise a vegetable garden 
this year I am trying flower pots and pallets.
A customer told me they had great success with  
their pallets
Hoping that our little pallet and flower pot garden 
bears many vegetables

                                           Stayed turned for updates on my garden

Lent 2014

This year for Lent I thought I would give up something that I used many times daily
something I love to visit and is so handy being on my phone ....Facebook.....
I signed off the night of Tuesday March 4th .
I have done well so far but yes Facebook must be missing me I have a email each night from
Facebook trying to get me to go look ...so far so good I have resisted the temptation
I am also giving up a food that I use a lot
So for Now I have done well ...I will post more after Easter

New Life

Tuesday of this week 
after work I had to walk down the street 
to the place that I knew 
would show new life if 
they were busting though the ground 
yes, the buds were forming 
I get so excited about the new life 
that spring brings 

                                      Even my day lilies were bursting though the ground

                                                      Don't you just get so excited about Spring time and
                                                                the new life coming forth ?


I have bird feeders out in the front yard 
I thought how nice it would be to watch the birds as 
We washed dishes 
my cell phone didn't does these birds that visited justice 
they were beautiful  stopping to 
look at me in the window as if to say 
thank you for the evening meal 

I say thank you little Birds for the enjoyment 
you bring to me 


                               A few weeks ago I received the little card to the left of the picture
its so nice to be remember by friends from my home state and just that someone thought about
me sure made this ole' Gal's day.
Nothing like getting cards and gifts for no reason from friends in my home state

Cement Pond

My Cement Pond 
Growing up I had this little cement pond 
not like the one on the Beverly Hillbillies as 
Ellie Mae enjoyed 
I am sure I enjoyed this little pond just 
as much as Ellie Mae 
Each spring my dad would paint the inside blue 
clean and fill it with water 
I would get so excited 
I could hardly wait  get my bathing suit on 
get in and just swim around or so I thought 
I was swimming more like just 
moving around along the sides 
as you can see in the picture below 
its not a big cement pond 
more like a Fish pond  and Bird  bath 
I sure spent many enjoyable days 
in this little pond ...

Multitudes on Mondays Week 187-197 (I think ) Dec 9-Feb 16


Trying to count the multitude of blessings is like standing on the shore trying to count each grain of sand

Giving thanks To GOD this week for

these weeks have brought much thankfulness each day as I am blessed with each new day as it is a gift from GOD ,
for all the days I have been blessed with I thank GOD ....

Mornings at the Bird Cafe

                                                      Nothing I like better than watching the birds
                                  I have said many times we can learn a  lot from the birds
                                                    they sing no mater the weather
                                                I hear them sing on cold mornings,
                                                  mornings of rain or storms   they still sing
                            In Psalms it says let everything that hath breath to Praise the Lord
                                      I just bet they are singing Praises to our Lord

Valentines 2014

My Valentine always picks out the most beautiful cards for me 
the words and what he wrote brought tears to this gals 
forever will never be long enough long as its with you 
the ending to the most beautiful words on this card 

                                 My one Red Rose means as much as if he had got 100 dozen
                                                        as it came from the heart
                                          its not the amount its the LOVE thats in the gift that counts

                                                                 I love you my Valentine

Winter Blast !!!!

I woke this morning  nice and warm in our bed
then I look at the outdoor temperature of 4 degrees
My thoughts turn to 4 degrees ......I begin
to pray for those that are homeless that they would
find a warm shelter and nice hot meals to eat
Each one that reads this please pray for those
that are homeless and in need of warm food, clothes and shelter
