{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,

{Ramblings For The Week}

Well, I just couldn't refrain from this!   Being a Georgia Football fan this brought a smile and a grin to my face. But ....I have been the one crying many times! LOL! GO DAWGS ! Speaking of football, these two grandgirls were ready for the Big Game on Saturday with Georgia-Florida.  My friend Vicky recently enjoyed a trip and brought me back some of this delicious Maple Syrup. I have already tested it in a little coffee instead of using sweetener! Oh my! So, so good.  I recently had the privilege  of being asked to be a guest speaker at a luncheon for a group of sweet ladies at our local Sheriff's department.  The theme was "HO PE " as October is Breast Cancer Awareness. I prayed and asked God to give me a message. I knew I wanted to bring laughter, fun and yet a message that speaks of HOPE ...the kind of HOPE that ONLY Christ can give.  The luncheon was lovely. The tables so beautifully decorated and the food w

{Family Fall Fun}

I saw this posted and thought it was the funniest thing. Our Family has a yearly Fall party at my fatherinlove's home and has for as long as I can remember. Lots of fun watching the kids have so much fun and adults. Always so much food, candy and fun. Wanted to share a little of our family fun with you all today. As you can see we have lots of kiddos to have fun with and some could not be there. And the grand girl that came as the bubble gum machine actually made some money. She would asked, "Do you wanna buy a piece of bubble gum? I think she left with $1.50. Smart girl!  My grands sure had a great time.  Lots of games, fishing pond, pumpkin carving, dancing and more was enjoyed.  We live in the country but I can assure you our bunch can be heard for miles around. LOL!  Baby girl had all the partying she cared for.  Oh I must show you my first sunflower to bloom.   I began planting them the

{Fun Times Making Memories}

Isn't that cutest rug ever? Found it at Ross for $5. YEP...FIVE BUCKS!  My daughter and I carried this sweet girl to the Fairytale and Princess Play that was at our local high school. She loved it. Lots of singing with milk and cookies. Pictures galore! Nana loved every minute of it too!  This girl cracks me up! She is so full of energy! When she comes to my house she is wide open! Within 45 minutes we had a tea party on the front porch, played dress up with hats in the grands play room, had pop sickles,went swinging, picked flowers, and colored. I wish I had just a tad of her energy.  We went to do a little shopping recently and to get the baby's ear's pierced. She done so good actually. Done me worse than her!   Lollipop to the rescue! She now has her very first diamonds. Ears pierced, out to eat and shopping. Such a fun day with the girls.  And I managed to slip off for a very short trip to sit in the midst o

{So, Inquiring Minds Want To Know}

I do hope this finds you all having a WONDERFUL Monday! Those dang Mondays just roll around real quick don't they?  Aren't they pretty? My sweet Mallory and Kyleigh gave these to me.  So, I am wondering...  Do you have lots of trick-or-treaters on Halloween night? If so, just curious, how much do you spend on candy to give out?  I have been enjoying some pumpkin spice hot tea lately. Don't you just love my tea cup and saucer? What about my little angels?  Since Fall is in the air...well, in most places that is....what is your favorite of these? Hayride or Bonfire? Hot Chocolate or Apple Cider S'mores by the campfire or Homemade Soup? My daughter and I carried our sweet Adalynn to see The Fairy tales and Princess Play at our local high school with singing and acting and she loved it! We enjoyed milk, cookies, and coffee with the Princesses too. Nana loved every minute...... PRICELESS!  Speaking of Fall... What'

{Anything Goes Monday}

YUP....It's Monday again! Hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. I actually enjoyed a weekend away with my man to do a little bow hunting. I was so thankful my dang old arthritic neck was better so I could go. Nothing like being in the outdoors admiring the beautiful creation that God has designed. And, I did get a little rest too. Rest is good. Sometimes we ADULTS just have to give ourselves permission to REST , right?  YES HE DOES!  YEP....I'm one of those old gals that you call a Huntress! I think sometimes I love it better than my man does. Or....maybe I like the going out to eat part....the shopping part....or the simply doing nothing part! LOL!  Now lets have a little fun together and answer a few questions... and while we do I want to share a few random pictures with my friends today. Web Image  Are you a coffee drinker?   If so, when is the last time you shared a cup of coffee with a friend? I realized that I had not shown y
