{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!  Web image We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS.  There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me.  We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shr

THANKFUL THURSDAY

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

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD

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 do...read 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
