{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,

{Tuesday's Thoughts}

Just so you know this is what happened when Nana turned her back for just ONE second! Matter of fact she had that little sweet hand ready to flush!  I sent my daughter, her mama, the picture I snapped and what does her mama say to me, "Mom, don't let her play in the toilet" . I mean, like, I just opened the toilet lid and said, "Go ahead Adalynn, play in the toilet". LOL!  Oh the joy and fun of grandbabies.  My youngest daughter, mama of that sweet girl playing in the toilet, just had a birthday. We celebrated with a big birthday dinner. Then she and her husba nd went out of town for a weekend and then ziplining. She had a great birthday.  Being the baby of three girls I can assure you she is spoiled and not just by her parents but her sister's too! God has truly blessed us with our girls. I hope that my blogging Texas friends are safe. I want you to know that I have been praying for you all. I have a friend that moved from Florid

{Happenings on the Home Front at Conner's Pond}

So, I saw this cute little pumpkin chalkboard at the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago and grabbed it. My hope was that it would put me in the FALLISH mood to start a little decorating for Fall. WELL IT DIDN'T! It's too stinking HOT for me to even begin to think about Fall. Then I noticed recently that my AC was not working properly. W hen I h ad to drag out the fan and threaten to join a nudist col on y I knew something was fixing to happen and QUICK! Now I will admit that I can HOT FLASH with the best of you but this had nothing to do with my hot flashes.  Needless to say my AC unit was in need of some freon and I did take care of that quickly.  Nope, I am still not in the FALL mood but I decided to use my pumpkin chalkboard.   THANK YOU JESUS FOR ALL GOOD THINGS!   I mean this is what happens around my house on Sunday afternoons after dinner and nobody can be sleeping HOT! I was going through old picture files and came across this one fr

{Let's Have A Little Fun and a little share time}

I thought we might have a little fun this week but first I must share this. I am so humbled at the transparency of so many of you with my last post concerning your deepest prayer need right now. I want you to know that for those of you that shared that I stopped and prayed for you. I am truly humbled at your being real with your needs and more humbled that the Lord would allow me the opportunity to stop and pray for you.  There is power in prayer! Okay so, let's have some fun and a little sharing today.  1: What has been the most embarrassing thing that you have done up to this point in life? 2: If you could only pick one place to live beside the place you currently live, where it would it be and why? 3: What is a phrase that you find yourself saying that you heard your entire life by a parent or grandparent? Last one: What Bible character at this time of your life do you feel that you relate too the most?  Before I answer these questions I have to sh
