Showing posts from October, 2012


  Good Sunday afternoon y'all. Where in the world has the month of October went too? My girls and I just said today that it seems that Christmas is knocking on the door already. Whew! But I will tell you a secret.....I've already been listening to a little Christmas music! LOL! I was creating a Christmas music playlist and the next thing I knew I was singing Christmas carols!  Marty and I managed to get away to do a little hunting in those Georgia Pines and I never tire of seeing the cotton fields. I will miss seeing those beautiful puffs of white cotton when it's harvested. There is just something about sitting in a tree stand and enjoying nothing but nature and God.  The trip paid off as Marty was able to harvest several deer and his dad came to help us process as we like to process our own meat if possible.  I did get a little time on the mats last week and made my instructor some homemade chicken noodle soup. I loves soups all year round. I am ready for a pot of chili t

Wednesday In The Word-Ignorance

 Image credit    Without exception, the number 1 element that sets believers up for seduction is ignorance. What we NOT know can hurt us! We cannot assume that Satan will just go away! HE WILL NOT QUIT HIS METHODS OF DECEIT. We would be wise Christians if we take this concern to heart and pick up the Word of God! Paul said in 2nd Corinthians 2:11: in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes . Oh that we may be mindful daily of the s chemes o f Satan and stand on the Living Word of God to defea t him.  H u gs and blessings, Cindy   

Wednesday In The Word-Service to the Lord

I hear women say a lot of times when asked about serving in various areas of the church or just simply serving at all, "I can't think of anything I am really good at". The Truth is according to 1 Corinthians 12:7 (MSG) Each person is given something to do that shows who God is. The Lord gives assignments to people and to each according to one's unique abilities. As the Lord calls us He also equips us. The Spirit of Christ has given to each christian a special way of serving others. You may be the behind the scenes type of person and you know what? That's great...God needs behind the scenes people.   Image credit You may can bake really well! Praise the Lord! He needs bakers!   Image Credit  You may can organize well. Well thank you Jesus because a lot of folks have no clue about organizational skills! He needs you!   Image Credit You may have the gift of being laid back and going with the flow type of spirit. Well see here, God needs

We as women in general tend to compare ourselves to other women don't we? We say, "I wish my hair looked like hers. I wish I had a house like hers. I would love to be able to speak like her. I long to have my children act like hers. I want a car like she has. I wish my husband acted like hers. I wish my house was spotless like hers. If only I could cook like she does. I wish I had her height. I wish my facial complexion was like hers. If only I had her money". And our list goes on doesn't it?    Image credit First I want to say this:And listen good.....We need to be very careful about what we WISH FOR! We have no clue what is really taking place in another woman's life nor may we want too!  If we are going to compare ourselves to someone else let it be Jesus! That will put our life into perspective.  Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Are we rooted in Christ?  Food for thought:  STATS: The average Christian spends 10 minutes a day with Christ. The average American spend 4 hours a day watching TV. God doesn't want religious duty. He doesn't want a distracted, half hearted, "Fine, I'll read a are you happy? attitude. God wants His Word to DELIGHT us, so much so that we meditate on it day and night.  In Psalm 1 He promises that those who do so are "Like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither; whatever He does prospers. (vs 3) Statement made in the book called Crazy Love: People who are obsessed with God have an intimate relationship with Him. Question for us would be? What kind of relationship do we have with Christ? Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Wednesday In The Word: Food for Thought

Just a simple statement today: Lukewarm people tend to choose what is popular over what is right when are in conflict. They desire to fit in both at church and outside the church; they care more about what people think of their actions (like church attendance and giving) than what God thinks of their hearts and lives. "Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets." Luke 6:26 "I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead." Rev 3:1 "Everything they do is done for men to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have all men call them "Rabbi". Matthew 23:5-7  Hugs and blessings, Cindy  

Tuesday Toots-Gold plated silverware

Well it is tootin' time this week. Just gotta toot on my new set of gold plated silverware....Well, it is new to me! (Sorta) Even the wooden box is pretty! Okay now for the story. My friend Janice gave this to me! I have borrowed this from her for the last few years around the Christmas holidays. I usually host a luncheon or dinner for a few ladies or either couples so Janice's pretty gold plated silverware was always perfect. Well....she decided I used it more than her so she gave it to me! She never liked it nor did she use it...(so that is what she told me). I wonder if maybe she got tired of me borrowing it and just decided to give it to me? Or I wonder if that is the part of friendship that says....I want you to have this just cause I love you!  Or could it be one of those God things where the Lord simple whispers to your heart to give something to another person that you'd rather really keep?  There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.
