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!
