{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,

{Prayer} The Key To All Things!

What seems to be YOUR impossible right now? May we never cease in praying!  Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

{Commitment}

You know...good relationships don’t happen by accident. They take lots of work and a lot of time . AND that equals commitment ! I looked up the word {Commitment} and here is what I found. :The state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity or obligation. : a promise to do or give something : a promise to be loyal to someone or something : the attitude of someone who works very hard to do or support something :an agreement or something pledged We live in a world that the word (commitment) has absolutely no meaning.

According to stats in the year 2013, 40% quit their jobs within the first 6 months of being employed for one reason or another.   According to stats 4 out of every 7 people that committed to serve on a committee quits or falters on their commitment within the first year regardless of whether it is a coop

Web image Well I am sure by the title that you have guessed what my post is about! YES , we are going to get another grandbaby...Our 5th grandbaby is due in April.

YAY!     Would you covet with me and pray for a healthy pregnancy, non complicated delivery and a healthy baby?  Hugs and blessings, Cindy  

{Sand Paper People}

I wish I could see your facial expression as you read the words {Sand Paper People}. I got a feeling you may have a few of those in your life from time to time. Sand Paper people are those that tend to {RUB} us the wrong way. Sometimes we just can't put our finger on exactly what the issue is and other times we know all too well why they tend to cause the hair on the back of our neck to stand up!  Years ago I had the opportunity to be a part of a ladies retreat where Mary Southerland spoke. If you aren't familiar with her I recommend that you purchase her book called.... YOU GUESSED IT ..."Sandpaper people".  It is an eye opener and gets right down to the nitty-gritty of the subject at hand. It is filled with so much truth and lavished with the Word of God. She tells this story and it goes like this:    The artist came to the park every day when the light was just right, positioning his easel and paints under the same familiar shade
