{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,

{Favorite Meme's, Praise and More Cake}

  Isn't she just lovely? I named her Pink Beauty . Yep, I give things a name sometimes. CRAZY! I was gifted her for Administrative Day.  Another birthday cake is in the freezer for a May birthday but while on a baking spell I decided to make a carrot cake with cream cheese icing for Sunday's dessert.  I guess the old glider will get a work out tomorrow as I do plan to have ANOTHER slice with coffee tonight!  web image I think I might best save this meme since I am having two slices of that carrot cake today! LOL!  Speaking of meme's I saw this one and it caught my attention. Do you have some favorite meme's? I must give a little praise today. This morning in church I sat next to my 17 year old granddaughter. When she opened her Bible to follow the passage reading for today I noticed the highlighting, underlined scriptures, notes and sticky notes on the pages of her Bible. Can I just say that this melted my heart with PRAISE!   This passage in Deuteronomy came to mind 

{Celebrating birthdays and Eating Cake}

  I shared with you last week that I was making cakes and freezing them for upcoming birthdays so today we reaped the harvest of two birthdays being celebrated. My soninlove David celebrated his 40th and my oldest granddaughter Raygen celebrated her 17th.  (David and his beautiful family) Of course I let my granddaughter pick her birthday meal and it was fried chicken, green beans, corn, macaroni and cheese, rolls, and deviled eggs.  We had quite a good Sunday lunch. But, we usually do because I cook most every Sunday for my family. LOL!  I went by to visit her at work as she works PT at their gym and I carried her balloons to help make her day extra special.  Her birthday cake was a hit. I tried a new recipe as she requested a homemade vanilla cake and homemade chocolate icing. So, she got a 4 layer vanilla cake with all the trimmings. The cake was more the consistency a pound cake but it was hit.  A little homemade chocolate sauce with Reese Peanut cups and chocolate icing added the

(Pinterest Favs This Week)

 I hope that you all have had a great week. We've had some weird weather this week in Florida. One day it's hot and the next I am turning on the heat. Last night we had high winds with rain and today it was chilly. I think next week it's suppose to be sunny! Who knows anymore with the weather.  But, the weather never stops me from lurking around on Pinterest. I have so many boards saved. There are many talented and gifted folks out there that sure know how to inspire us Pinterest fans. I will share a few things that caught my eye.   Web Image I absolutely loved this outfit. Black and white will never go out of style and I love the classiness of black and white together. I love the cold shoulder tops and dresses. This lady is not only beautiful but she can sure style this outfit. There was not a link for me to attach but I wanted to share it. Do you like cold shoulder tops or dresses?  fiftynotfrumpy.blogspot.com There I go with the black and white again. I love black and wh

{It's All About Family}

  I am late in trying to get a post out this week. It sure seems time flies when you are busy. But, when busy with those I love the most then that's a good kind of busy too me. I hope that you all had a wonderful Resurrection Day. Our family sure did. We also have been celebrating my granddaughter Adalynn's 5th birthday. We call her Ada. She is such a joy and delight to our family. So, I want to share some family pictures with you all today of my family.  This was taken Easter Sunday after church. One of my soninlove's had to work so could not join us until that afternoon. We all attend, serve and worship together at the same church. Yes, I am beyond blessed and thankful.  So blessed to be these girl's mom.  My soninlove had to work but he was there in our hearts with his family. Our oldest two granddaughter's. They make life fun. My soninlove made it to the annual Conner egg hunt.  The Easter bunny came to visit us too.  I think our Annaleigh was excited to see the
