{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,

Once again we have so much to be thankful for. With each reading of the book "One Thousand Gifts" I am finding myself so short on the simple things in life that I need to be thankful for. God is using this book to show me the MANY, MANY things I have to be so thankful for. Though I am "ALWAYS" thankful for my family I must say that these four little grands give me all the more reason to be thankful for LIFE!   I am thankful for being able to watch family gather together on Easter Sunday and the little ones and the grown ones hunt for eggs....oh do we take these little times for granite. Thankful to watch the children play. THANKFUL To see the face of my oldest granddaughter as she opens her birthday gift only to find that she has her very on sewing machine! Thankful to be able to have a little Princess party for all these little girls and listen to their giggles and see the smiles on their faces. Thankful that God gave has giv


Our Lord knows everything about us. He knows our goings and our comings. He knows our hearts. He knows our needs and He loves us so much. Read these words and when you them slow and soak it in.  O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up. You understand my thoughts afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down. And are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold O Lord, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before. And laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me. It is high, I cannot attain it. Psalm 139:1-6 (NKJV) Hugs and blessings, Cindy  


Pray that you all had a wonderful Memorial Day. We enjoyed a little rain for a change!  Want to share some beautiful pre-bridal photos of Miss Brittany Jackson (now Mrs. Brittany Morales). Wedding pictures to come.... Thanks for letting me toot a little today! Wish I could share them all...but would be here a while and you'd be blind! Ha!  Hugs and blessings, Cindy
