{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,

{Far Out, Peace, Groovy Baby}

  Our Conner Family had our annual Halloween/Fall Party and as always it was so much fun. Marty and I decided this year to Be GROOVY . I wasn't sure if I could out do FLO from last year. I honestly had so much fun dressing up from an era of time that I remember all too well. Great songs from the 70's, lots of dancing, love beads and well, PEACE OUT .  Marty is such a good sport and it doesn't take much for him to want to have fun, especially when it involves the family.  It's so much fun dressing up with my girls. They make life so fun and never a dull or boring moment for sure.  One of my granddaughter's decided to be a hippie with Nana. She will be 13 in November and growing up too quickly. My oldest granddaughter was a pirate and I might add a beautiful one at that.  We surely had lots of different characters covered in dress up attire.    We do this fun event at my Fatherinlove's home each year. We have all sorts of goodies to eat. We try to change it up ea

{The Winner of the Giveaway and Whitetail Deer Hunting with the Family}

  I am getting a late start to sharing with you all this week. But, better late than never huh? Sharing one of my beautiful sunflower blooms with you today. Isn't she just lovely? I always plant sunflowers this time of year and this year it seemed that they had a hard time getting started for various reasons. But now they are coming into bloom and I am sure am enjoying these beauties.    I spent the weekend hunting with these ladies and there is nothing like being in the great outdoors with your girls and grands doing what you enjoy. My oldest daughter doesn't hunt but our whole family enjoys venison and about anyway it's cooked.     We goofed off some too.....but we sure had a great time.       But.....Nana brought home supper! YES!  I see some fried back strap on my plate real soon. To be quite honest, it's not about the harvest for me. It's about spending time with those I love the most, and some of my sweetest times with the Lord is while I am sitting in a tree

October is here!

Web image Well, I've had several friends already post their October bucket list on FB and I've been thinking.....Why, I haven't even thought about it to be honest. I guess I've been so busy just doing every day life  day by day  that an October bucket list never occurred to me. What is on your October bucket list?   I might not can tell you what I will do the remaining of October but I have dog sat this weekend.  Isn't Bo just the cutest? Marty and I dog sat for our daughter Melissa this weekend while grandgirl played travel ball out of town. We call him our " Old Soul"  dog.   Bo is so laid back. Of course he is 8 or 9 years old and just loves to chill out. My kind of dog. I asked my daughter since I kept her dog for the weekend would she repay the favor and keep her daddy one weekend for me. 🤣 She has yet to answer me!!!!  The oldest two grands enjoyed a weekend away to Universal. They sent me pictures. They are 16 and 14 now. Where does the time go? We
