{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

{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. We are very excited to announce that our youngest daughter is expecting! My baby is having a baby! God is good!  Children’s children are the crown of old men, And the glory of children is their father. Proverbs 17:6 We are already planning a Gender Reveal Party! 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
