{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.

Merry Christmas My Dear Blogging Friends

I feel like it's been forever since we've chatted. I have been so busy over the last couple of weeks, helping out with grandbabies, working part time, trying to do a little Christmas, and well, life is just busy right now. Anyone else there?  Grandbabies sure makes life a whole lot sweeter. Those of you that have grands I can hear you saying AMEN!  Seems time caught up with me quick this holiday season. I did manage with the help of my oldest granddaughter Raygen to get my kitchen and living room decorated for Christmas. There is an advantage to having older grands. LOL!  I didn't decorate as much this year as I usually do but good enough for me.  My granny's dishes got a touch of red this season added to them. I love my centerpiece for my dining room table. You can't see but very little but the Dough bowl holding my centerpiece was given to me by my granny and her daddy, my great-grandfather actually carved the bread bowl. 

{Exciting News}

Grandchildren fill a space in your heart that you never knew was empty.  The Lord has surely blessed our family with these five sweet kids and as you know we are getting a 6th sweet grandbaby.  Baby Starr is due May 29th. So exciting! My daughter and soninlove had a small family gathering for the gender reveal and needless to say the anticipation was high.   My niece made the cake and it was just simply adorable.   My daughter wanted to keep it simple since the holidays are jammed packed with so much going on so coffee, hot chocolate, and cake was served and it was perfect for the Christmas holiday season.   My daughter chose to reveal the gender with a Christmas tree. She had pink and blue ornaments along with pink and blue lights on the tree. Of course no one knew what color of lights would come on until the lighting of the tree. I think you could safely say once the tree was lit that......... IT'S A GIRL!
