Happy Thanksgiving to you!!❤
I thank God for you who write and thus give such rich gifts of your time, wisdom, knowledge and experience. It is beautiful to get to know you better.
I am thankful to those who read my blog, which allows me to share my thoughts, wisdom, knowledge and experience. This means so much.
I thank God for salvation and eternal security because of the powerful work of Jesus Christ.
I thank God for my family, those under my roof and extended far beyond it.
I thank God for my band family and musicianship. All those many who I have played music with, thank you for sharing that treasure with me.
I thank God for the blessings He has given me… the things I can take for granted but are so important like good health, exercise, an SUV that is very useful, food on the table, a roof over our heads, washing machine and drier in the house, running water, air conditioning or heat as needed, working stove and oven ans fridge, shoes, lotion, so many things!😄❤
Smile more today. Smiling makes you and someone else feel better, regardless of their reaction. It is free, simple and kind. It is catchy. Smile! May God bless you today!😄❤
Today’s main cleaning job is finished, so we are at the library. Yay! 😄 What a joy to get a huge job finished at the house. Happy is a decision. I could have been annoyed at having to do all the work myself but I chose happy because I could buckle down and get finished faster. And here we are, at the library! Happy is a choice and I choose happy!😄❤
New Age crap sounds good. It will even temporarily make you feel good, great even. The truth about it is that it focuses you on yourself, the opposite focus we should have, which is on God. It is directly opposing God. It is in fact replacing Him OR putting Him in a box inside us, as in we are powerful, we are gods, we are worthy of all our attention and pampering.
Let me be clear, we should love and care for ourselves and work to improve, but that is what we should do for others too AND God should always get center stage, top billing, all the praise, adoration and honor.
God lovingly and with great care and thought and wisdom created every single thing, animal, person we know of in this universe. He is the boss of it. That is true no matter what you believe, feel, want, campaign for, like, love, whatever.
So instead of all that narcissistic self-improvement crap and blather, try some reading your Bible and praying to and worshipping God. He is worthy, we are not.❤❤❤
Every day is beautiful and a gift. None are promised and every one is a gift of grace, filled with potential. Sure, people may not be packed into this day n in merriment and excitement, but they could if you throw some hot dogs on the grill and in it people over. Or reading a good book could fill your day with them or growth opportunities. Or baking or making something could provide someone an opportunity to receive a handmade gift from you and make them smile. There are endless possibilities for today. Make it count and share joy! (Sharing joy makes yours bigger.) 😄❤
Today I planted peas, carrots and radishes. We already have blackberry bushes growing and rosemary thriving. I also transplanted two ginger plants the birds were kind enough to plant in our yard. So God has been good to us. And very little in life brings me more sheer joy than working our garden. I was raised on a farm in Buchanan, Michigan and having a garden was my normal. I live it. It has taken me a while to Learn the stark differences to growing food in central Florida. Growing seasons are different, soil needs a lot of love constantly, bugs are incredibly resilient and prolific, so on. So these first few years are experimental but I am hopeful we will do well. I am watching a lot of youtube tutorials for our area. So may God bless our efforts and let’s see what happens. 😄❤
