Season of Love

Well here we are and it is that wonderful time of year to reflect on what our great God did for us. Christmas someone said it's meaning is Christ mass.Makes me ponder.
Oh how He loves us. He has blessed me so much while shopping this year.Got some bargains but most of all I meet some really lovely people. We have opportunities every day if we just slow down and look and listen.One of the people I meet was a widow who has a farm and cattle and is alone her husband died on the day of his retirement,she is so special and I got to invite her to Christmas eve service at our church,my honey has to work .Thank you Lord for the kiss.
Are you ready for Christmas? Take some time and bring Jesus joy, peace,and love to someone new you won't be sorry. I am not.

Oaks of Righteousness

Woman's Retreat theme Oaks of Righteousness
To all who morn in Zion he will give
Beauty for ashes
Joy instead of morning
Praise instead of heaviness
For God has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for His own glory.
Isaiah 61:3 LB

This was a wonderful time with twenty three extradinary mature women in years and their relationship with the Lord.We sang and praised and cried and laughed think we covered every emotion women have,it was such a blessing.

We had small group time with the women we were rooming with,our condo was beautiful and so peaceful.We sat on the balcony which overlooks a golf course,the weather was beautiful.What a week-end we even had church on sun. morn with a gorgeous view of Gods creation.
Each one of us got to give testimony to our thankfulness for what God has and is doing in our lives . Isaiah 61:10 Let me tell you how happy God has made me.For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and draped about me the robe of righteousness.I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit or a bride with her jewels.

His plan for us has and is for our good and everlasting joy in Him .For He is good .... all the time.

This was a small retreat in numbers but so large in thanksgiving and praise to our Lord. I am so grateful to live where I can freely worship and serve our Lord, how about you ? Do you need a retreat ? Take some time this is the season of thanksgiving. What are you thankful for ? Share your thankfulness with your family or someone who is part of your life. HUGS

What a Summer

I am so grateful. God has richly blessed our family. Krissy had back surgery and is doing very well. Terry and his family are all OK little bump when they thought Sam had picked up a parasite at Boy Scout Camp but was just a virus thank you Lord.Tina is rejoicing as she always does no matter what the situation is. Emily is at Anderson University this year makes it closer to home but still on campus. Boys are growing Levi is back in football and Garrett is in tennis so both are in there element. Praise God !
I had surgery too rotator cuff and they also moved a nerve in my elbow. Our home group made sure we had dinner for two weeks and stopped by or checked to see if we needed anything . Church family what a blessing. Still in therapy it is slow process and I am trying to be patient. My honey has been so helpful and encouraging.
Ministry Needles of Faith is going strong.New women are joining and we just finished making the hats for the homeless for winter over 200 were made. Working on baby stuff now and prayer blankets . God has blessed this ministry this year abundantly.
We have had donations coming in and everything we have needed has been supplied. He is so faithful . All glory goes to him !!
Hope to get back to blogging miss it. 1John 3:1 NIV How great is the love the Father has lavished on us ! We could count the stars in the heavens,people on a planet,smiles in a lifetime ... Still we could not begin to count the ways our Heavenly Father loves you and me. Thank you Lord !

We had a wonderful time together but all agreed it was to short and went by quickly.We laughed, cried, prayed,played domino's,euchre and talked about anything and everything. We enjoyed each and every moment.
On the way to our place we stopped for lunch in a small town called Orleans at a family restaurant my favorite place to get peanut butter pie .I have bragged about their pie for so long and wouldn't you know it they were out the day we stopped. I couldn't believe it but Debbie called them from our place and ask them to save a whole pie we would pick it up on our way home.She told everybody but me and was I surprised.We each got a fourth to take home.I have talked to them since our trip and the pie was a hit .If anyone has a great recipe for peanut butter pie I would love to try it.Next time we go to our place I am asking if the restaurant will give the pie recipe to me.It is the Best !
We were all sore from laughing was a good sore though. I thank God for the beautiful women He has put in my life.
I took my camera and I am so bad never tool the first picture.Do have precious memories for now.
Hope to do it again before summer is through. Sure wish we had more sleeping space and wouldn't hurt if we were a bit younger too. Blow up beds are not that comfortable.
A lot has happened since we came home, I am having some test next week and could use your prayers.
Will get back with more information after test.My scripture reading the other day was so good it is from the Message Matt 6 29:31 If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers----
most of which are never ever seen---- don't you think He'll attend to you, take pride in you, do His best for you? What I am trying to do here is get you to relax,to not be so preoccupied with getting,so you can respond to God's giving. People who don't know God and the way He works fuss over things, but you know God and how He works.
Steep your life in God your everyday human concerns will be met . Don't you just love it ! I don't and you don't need to worry for anything ! but pray for everything .Amen HUGS to you all.
