{I Am Retired Y'all!}

  It sure is a bittersweet time but I am surely looking forward to my adventure with the Lord. I wanted to share a few pictures with my friends. I have received so many phone calls, texts, cards and gifts this week that have just brought tears and joy.  Turning in my office keys of many years was hard! But, Jeremiah 29:11 is surely reminder that God has set the plans for my life and that I will trust.  I only had the blessing of serving alongside Pastor Scott for nearly a year and I pray God's blessings upon him and his family as his journey continues. However, he is a quick learner and learned that I was the BOSS! LOL! The former pastor and his wife that hired me 22 plus years ago even tuned in to the recognition with a video. It melted my heart. I will never forget interviewing with Bro. Edsel in his office and then I was interviewed by the personnel team.  Lastly, Bro. Edsel's wife Judy interviewed me at a luncheon. Bro. Edsel trusted her discernment of me totally. However,

{My Adventures This Week}

  Well since Adventure is my WORD for this year I ventured out over the weekend and bought myself a new hat! I love hats and don't wear them often. Well, except for when I am at the beach. I am always a little self-conscious about wearing a hat because my hair is short and I have such a small head but guess what? I AM VENTURING OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE this year! (In different areas of life). Life is too short not to enjoy some fun things even when they may carry you a tad out of your comfort zone. I will be sure to post a picture with my new cute hat especially since I have a new outfit to go with it! LOL!  I am enjoying using my new air fryer. Several of you dear blogging friends sent me a couple of recipes to try and I will be trying them. I decided to make some simple canned biscuit donuts using the air fryer as I had a hankering for something a little sweet.  No fuss, no grease and no failure here! YUM! 4 minutes to preheat and 5 minutes to cook!  Air Fryer Cinnamon Donuts 1

{Happy New Year Everyone...2022}

  Happy New Year to all my blogging friends. What a gift the Lord has given to us to be able to go forward in this thing we call "life" in this New Year. I hope that you all have a wonderful New Year weekend. I spent a couple days with Marty and his dad in those wonderful Georgia pines.  We had a great time. The weather wasn't the best...too hot and too windy but we enjoyed our time.  I did a little clearance Christmas shopping, reading the Word and a whole lot of eating!  Tried my hand with my new air fryer before we left to go hunting and the chicken and potatoes turned out perfect! I think I am really going to like it. I am pinning lots of recipes and hope to try some more out this week.  As most of you my WORD for 2021 was JOY and my scripture was Neh. 8:11. "The joy of the Lord is my strength". When I felt that was the word for me little did I know that I would quickly learn that my true JOY  could come ONLY come from Him. Let's face it! A lot of life

{Oh The JOYS of Christmas}

  I hope that your Christmas was Merry and Bright . Our holiday time as family has been so wonderful. It's kind of like Marty said though last night before going to bed. "You plan and plan, decorate, wrap, bake, cook, prepare and everything in between and it's OVER, just like that". YES, what he said is so true but this year I've tried in the midst of all the business of CHRISTmas to SIMPLY enjoy and ENJOY I did. WARNING: Picture overload!  What's not to enjoy when you God has given you six beautiful, healthy, wonderful grandchildren? They sure make EVERY occasion and holiday special for us. One of our grandchildren's gifts each year is matching PJ's. It's become a tradition that I truly love. I looked back just this morning over the years of pictures that we have been wearing matching pj's and I hope that it will be "one" of their fond memories of our Christmases together.   My beautiful daughters! I am not sure what I ever done
