{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.

What is Spring Fever to you?     Simple Definition of spring fever : a feeling of wanting to go outdoors and do things because spring is coming and the weather is getting warmer     Another definition says; a lazy or restless feeling often associated with the onset of spring  I'm getting a hankering to play with some herbs again. Now making the time to do that has been a nother story. But I have been busy doing other things such as........... Cleaning out kitchen

{This and That and Happy Easter}

Well it seems I am bouncing around right now from one thing to another. I've been doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that. What have you been up to this week? Baby girl carried me to a few of my "hot spots" for thrifting recently so found these cuties at a Goodwill. And NO I didn't need them but as one of my sisterinlove's would say, "It's not a matter of if I need it....I just WANT IT!  Won't this be cute this Fall? Watching the grandgirl play some ball is always fun... Watching my grandgirls fight over who will get to feel the baby move is always funny! They all won this time around though. Had a little birthday celebration with my mom and two of her friends for her 76th birthday. Nothing sweeter than the bond of friendship. I saw this on Wendy Saunder's Creative post (she is on P interest) and I loved it. Isn't this just the cutest? I may need to fix the front of my li
