{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,


WELCOME SWEET BABY GIRL! Our sixth grandchild arrived on May 25th.  And w e are so in love with her.  She entered this world at 12:07 pm on Friday, May 25th. Awaiting her arrival in the birthing room was her daddy, me, my oldest two daughter's and my girl's sweet motherinlove. I have had the awesome privilege to witness the miracle of birth with all six of my grandchildren.    This picture was taken just minutes after her birth. Yes, we love her hair and needless to say with four other grandgirls in the family and with one being her older sister, she has plenty of bows! She may need a trim before long. Her older sister  had a head full of hair when she was born too and still does at the age of two. Big sister meeting baby sister for the first time.   I think Adalynn will be a good big sister. My other two daughters enjoying the moment with their niece.  We give God the praise for this new blessing of

{Tea Cup and Mug Exchange}

One of my favorite things to participate in with sister blogger's is the Tea Cup and/or Mug Exchange . The lovely Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose hosts a lovely exchange twice yearly. It is your choice as to whether you would like to exchange a Tea Cup or a Mug or both. I chose to exchange a Tea Cup. My collection of Tea Cups has grown and so has my friendships. I was so delighted when I came home one afternoon to find a box with my name on it and filled with so many wonderful things from Deborah .  Be sure to visit her at Her blog is chalked full with so much goodness. She certainly must have prayed for specifics to fill my box with as each and every gift spoke to ME! She adorned my box full of goodies with scripture. I had so many nice treasures that I cannot list them all. From journals to Bible Study book. Coffee, teas, and yummy things for my tummy as my grands would say. A beaut

{The Sweet Life}

 I have been enjoying the "Sweet Life" with family. A field trip to "Sweet Pete's" was in store with my granddaughter, Mallory Grace.    Mallory is the tallest one in the picture. She's about to catch up in height with Nana. We enjoyed a luncheon there to begin our day and then we watched how candy was made. Honestly, I think the field trip was for me. I was intrigued by all the details involved in candy making.We participated in a Science project involving candy and we learned how to make lollipops. We were also given a tour of behind the scenes in the candy making factory. Very interesting to say the least. We were allowed to carry other family members so two other grandbabies got to enjoy the day as well.  The colors used throughout Sweet Pete's and the decor is amazing. Every kind of candy that you can imagine is available. And just so you know....the Sea Salt Chocolate Caramels are sooooooooooooooooo GOOD!  I am tea
