new toy

well, I bit the bullet and bought myself a Fitbit flex wristband. It is a fancy, dancy pedometer. It measures more than just your steps, it can track your sleep, calories, biking and other forms of exercise like lifting weights. I have wanted one for a while and just couldn't justify $99, but today I could, go figure!! I tried to use my phone and it works only if your phone is in your hand while walking, so that's not so great if your on the treadmill. So, this will help me be more active, I'm thinking, so far so good.
Sun was out today and it was 11 degrees most of the day!  It was not windy as in previous days so it was pretty nice to be out and about as I was, running errands, getting my brows waxed, exercising and shopping, yeah that's what a day off looks like for me!!! :)
Blessing for your weekend!! Rest and have fun!

It was a quiet day for us. A true day of rest for us, I feel revived! It had been a long week and work was hard for some reason. I don't doubt that we all need to take a day of rest whether it's to go to church or stay home, but to truly rest in Him! To rest in the Lord is a great gift that He asks us to do daily, sometimes even moment by moment. To rest and drink in His presence is wonderful! There was a time when it was hard for me to do that, but God is always waiting for us to return to the Living water for a long drink!!! That time I was mad at God and no drinking of that water was going to happen. I had dug in my heels, but He was gentle and waiting with open arms when I was ready to return to Him!! I danced for joy and drank a long drink!! That time was a gift to me as I look back over the years and rejoice that God was right in letting me be mad, that He knew I would return and be a stronger person for the Kingdom because of that trial! I could bear witness to His mercy and love to others who would go through hard times! Be strong and of good cheer my sisters, for God loves us with a deep love and will grant us His mercy!! Blessings!!

Yesterday was my birthday, celebrated well!!! Gordon asked me if I was 29 again, I said yes for the 34th time!!! We went to a little restaurant out of the way to eat, it as great, prime rib, YUM!!!!!
I started thinking this morning about birthdays and what they mean to me. It brings joy to my heart that I have another year to enjoy my family, friends and life! I got a chance to talk to both sisters and always enjoy that, daughter texted me several times yesterday, a niece texted me, and I got a few kisses from Gordon, what more can you ask for!!! I don't need much anymore from anyone, just to be acknowledged is best, kisses are best though!! I'm very thankful for a relationship with the Living God and I can drink from the Living water(His Word) to find what I need! Blessings!!!

Well people, this weekend is for the romantics! Are you one of those people that loves a sappy movie or cry when you see a puppy or smile at anyone's baby??? I know I'm one of those people. I can't help it and I make no apologies! Well, please just remember to wish your favorite person a Happy Valentine's day. Do something special whether it's a card, flowers, or candy or a sweet kiss, please take the time and do something special!! It doesn't need to be expensive or fancy, just remember that, please.
We are also going to celebrate with our 15 yr old granddaughter her being baptized on Sunday.
This is a huge step for her and we want to celebrate. Jesus got a hold of her heart, that's a great thing .
We pray she will bring Glory to His kingdom!!! It's tough being 15 and all that these days, or so I've heard, but we are praying for her and ask that will you will too. Blessings to you!!!
