{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.

{It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year}

Can you believe Christmas is almost here! I was a little late this Christmas season decorating for Christmas. But it might have been a good thing because as I was bringing out the Christmas stash I found dishes I had bought last year after Christmas on sale and FORGOT I HAD THEM !!!! I felt like someone had just given me a Christmas present and I was thrilled that it was dishes! Remember.... My name is Cindy and I am a dishaholic! They went perfectly with my kitchen and dining room theme I wanted to achieve for Christmas this year. Simplicity took over at my house for Christmas with the decorating this season. Lack of time and energy seemed to be my excuse. Recently a friend of mine said she thought her new WORD for 2016 might be simple and I grabbed a hold of that for the rest of my 2015 year! I thought, "Okay, I can kill myself trying to make it all look stunning and brilliant or I can simplify and actually enjoy the holidays. I chose to ENJOY !  I love my Chr

{Mad Hatter Tea Party}

Our ladies team at my church just hosted a Mad Hatter Tea Party and we had so much fun that I have to share with you some pictures! We had singing, laughter, a wonderful message and our decorating was OVER THE TOP I must say! We have some gifted, talented and artistic women among us! We based our Mad Hatter theme on this verse. I think it was perfect since sweet little Alice in Wonderland had no clue what direction she was going in as she falling don't you?  Why we even had our own Alice in Wonderland. We had so many decorations that I wish I could show you them all but here's a few.... One of our talented ladies created our place mats for the tables....too cute! Another talented lady made the scrolls that had our Bible verse on it and each had a key tied onto it.  A few more decorative pieces... And just look at our tree...isn't she lovely? Some of us dressed the part and it was so much fun!
