{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.

{Happy, Happy, Happy)

Remember the song.... If you're happy and you know it say Amen...If you're happy and you know it say Amen....If you're happy and you know it then your face will surely show it, if you're happy and you know it say Amen! These lovely flower arrangements was freshly picked out of my yard and made such pretty table pieces for a few days....and it made me HAPPY ! I just love the smell of gardenia's.  Done a little thrifting...and that ALWAYS makes me happy ! First stop produced this little batch of goodies....Scale, decanter and 5 white linen napkins!  And of course you know I just happened to find a tea cup and saucer! And I just might have to make a Sunflower cake.....  Ooh...loved these...found 8 of them. And you cannot imagine how excited I was when I found these cute flipflop spreaders!!! Our ladies ministry team will be having a "Flipflops, Friends and Fellowship" social in a few weeks and I will be using these

{Candy Bouquet}

How about a candy bouquet today with a little bling? Mercy, this bouquet almost didn't happen!!! Do you know how hard it was for me to NOT eat that REESE'S ? Only because I am a good Nana though.....LOL! My oldest granddaughter Raygen, who is 12 was trying out for Cheer-leading and I wanted to do a little something for her before she tried out that would be an encouragement to her. WELL what better than some CANDY right?  So I gathered up some goodies for the bou quet. Bought 4 boxes of candy to make my container to hold the bouquet with. Hot glued the boxes together to make a square.  Then I cut a piece of Styrofoam to fit and added just a tad of glue so when I pushed it down in the boxes that it would stay without falling out of the bottom.  Took a piece of tissue paper with a couple of toothpicks and stuck it in the Styrofoam.  Hot glued the little sticks onto the back of each candy piece. Then I s tarted assembling the bouquet
