{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,

{Fresh Pear Cobbler) Drop Cake Style

How about a little Pear cobbler today? We picked some pears off my pear tree and I decided to make a pear cobbler...drop cake style! I thought that I would share the recipe with you today. And instead of going step by step I just attached the recipe for you. Pin away...or you can right click on the recipe and save for printing or viewing later. Cake drop style is a little different than what I am used to making but I like to try new things sometimes. I would love to know...are you more of "stick to what you know" person? Or, are you like me and willing to try new things with recipes? I watch too much CHOPPED and I am always willing to try something new. But then I am like that when we go out to eat too. My man almost always gets the same old same old but then when he sees that I've ordered something different then he wants some of mine! LOL! While that pear cobbler was baking I decided to have me a good old grilled ham and cheese sandwich with

{The Family Chronicles}

I just want to say that if you are across the miles and don't have family then come on to Florida and you can be a part of our family! There is one thing that we do well...and that's FAMILY !  Our family had a Peanut Boil and Watermelon party on Sunday afternoon at my fatherinlove's home. Nothing like a Sunday afternoon visiting, talking, laughing, playing a little corn hole and sliding down the water slide! Especially when it's with brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins and etc.  Of course the high light of the day was when my nearly 82 year old fatherinlove had to show them all how it's done on the water slide!  It was also my sisterinlove's birthday. Isn't this the cutest cake? I didn't have a slice but I heard that it was YUMMY! S he is known to her grandchildren as "Granny Darlin" . Isn't that just the cutest thing ever? The definition of family is:  basic social unit consisting of paren

{The Beach Bum Has Returned}

I have missed my blogging buddies this past week but I sure have enjoyed some time away with my man at the beach. We had such a great time. We went to Rest and Relax and we certainly done both. Matter of fact we became quiet good at R & R!  I'm missing it now . But, I Praise the Lord that we had the opportunity to go and have some time away.  We had the opportunity to stay in a SWEET Coastal Cottage on the beach and I snapped so many pictures with my handy dandy cell phone... I decided that in order not to do picture OVERLOAD that I needed to do some collages so for you to see.  The first sign we see was this.... And WELCOMED we felt! We loved everything about this cottage. The location, the privacy, the home and the hosts! The cottage has it's own private entrance and gated courtyard. The east side of the cottage had a courtyard patio and west side had large covered deck with sundecks.Though the cottage was actually nestled in a small neighborh
