Is anyone reading this blog?

I wondered this question every time I post on this blog! I wonder of people are bored with this blog and what could I do to jazz it up, but I keep coming back to God's whisper to write a simple blog that talks a little about our life, maybe a recipe here and there, maybe a word of encouragement, and just to say hi, this is what is going on in my life! Well, things are going to change anytime soon, I would love to upgrade this and reach out to more people, but I really don't have time right now, maybe when I retire. Be encouraged my dear friends, God is listening and cares for you, I do too! Blessings beyond and back!

Fervent Fridays with Priscilla Shirer

I bought the book "Fervent" back in January I think after watching " War Room" movie. Its a book packed with wonderfulness in the realm of prayer. So, the other day, maybe Wednesday I think I see that Priscilla is doing a online Bible study using that book, well sign me up!!! So, I did. I'm telling you this is going to be a great ride! This past Friday, she talked about finding your passion and what if you have lost it, where to go to get it back? So, where do you go, to prayer of course! Pray is not something to do when you are in trouble or need something, it's our love language to God! God wants us to not only pray for those is need, including ourselves, but to talk to Him like we talk to our friends, you do know that God is your friend, right?! So, join the movement on Fervent Fridays and let me know what you think of the study and the book!  Priscilla Shirer quote," When we come together in unity we are an armed force that the enemy cannot penetrate," what a great quote! Blessings beyond and back!

This is what I woke up to this morning

I know its a long title, but I just wanted to get your attention! We heard the freeze warnings and brought in the beautiful hanging baskets, but snow??? NO way!! May 14th, who knew! This is Spring people and no snow should be falling now!!! Well, enough whining! Can't change it!
I'm reading a really interesting book right now, called "Life Interruptions, the life of Jonah", by Priscilla Shirer. This lady writes great thought provoking books that are Bible based. She plays the lead role in the movie "War Room." I have 3 more of her books in my cart at Amazon.
Have a great weekend! Blessings beyond and back!

Mother's Day 2016

Do any of you remember when there was Mother's day banquets and/or dinners. What ever happened to them? Did we the next generation get so burned out from doing too much, that we don't celebrate our mom/daughters like in the 70's, 80's and 90's?? I suspect that is the reason, but I don't know for sure. I look back in fondness, but I'm sure it was a lot of work of whoever was in charge! I hope that Mother's day is special for you, it hasn't always been a great day for me, but hey, that's in the past and I'm moving forward! This year I think because he forgot my birthday, I got a beautiful hanging basket from Gordon, 2 baskets from Kurt and a spa gift card, plus lunch date with my daughter. I really SCORED!!!!! Blessings, and Happy Mother's Day to all of you!

8 things you don't know about me

I was looking at another site today and I realized I hadn't done this in a while. I think I did this back 2 years ago. So, I'm hoping I'm not repeating myself.
1. I'm a food snob! I'm kinda picky on pizza, vegetables I love /hate, apples(still love red delicious, though they have been passed by many other apples), I'm not a huge fan of spaghetti and I have forgiven ham for being canned(hate canned ham).
2. I love wearing lipstick, though there again I'm pretty picky on colors.
3. I LOVE biking and I'm now on the look out for a 3 wheeled bike as I'm afraid of falling off my bike with my back issues, that would be bad!
4. I love my blog! I'm not here a lot of the time, but I do love doing this part time thing!
5. I would like to learn how to hook rugs, place mats and etc. using the wool strips.
6. I really don't like to scrapbook. It's too putsy for me. Slap those photos in the book and move on!
7. I LOVE naps.
8. I love peonies! Love the smell, look and fragileness (I don't think that is a word) of them. My mom had the prettiest peonies on the block I think, She could grow them, not me. I have killed 3 plants and now afraid to try again. I hate that they attract ants and then you have to deal with the ant problem!
Well, that is a short list and hopefully I have amused you all! Blessings!!!

girls softball

Yesterday, Gordon and I got the chance to watch the twins play their first game of the season. We were going to go in the morning to watch Kora's game, but she came down with a cold and stayed home. So we got ready slowly and drove in for the afternoon. It was a pretty day then the cool breeze came in with clouds looking like rain any minutes. Just a few drops and it still looked like rain, but held off till we were on our way home. It has rained all night and most of today which we needed badly.
Tomorrow I'm starting Whole 30 eating program. It is suppose to help me feel better with my arthritis, so I'm going to try this for 30 days and I'm looking forward to some relief! So, I made meatballs today so I can take some to work tomorrow for lunch with a salad and some fruit! Then, I need to shop for the rest of the week. Hope you have a great week! Blessings!
