{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,

{Good Times With Family}

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our family surely enjoyed our day with extended family. We always have MORE than you could imagine to eat and such a great time together.  Granddaughter Mallory turned 14 on Nov. 23rd so we celebrated her a few days before Thanksgiving with cake and ice cream. She had a great birthday. She went to see The Christmas Carol at the Alhambra Dinner Theatre and loved it.   We snapped a few pictures on Thanksgiving day and as always, I am so proud of my family.  I did take a little time for "tea time" and whipped up a pineapple, mango, and cinnamon spice loaded tea. YUM! We loaded up Thanksgiving afternoon and went with the guys to our hunting grounds and done a little hunting, eating out and shopping. My oldest daughter didn't go as my grandson had a football game. Which, she doesn't hunt either but hates being left out so.... She cloned herself in our picture. LOL! Aren't these shoes the cutest? I found these at TJ Maxx

{Happy Thanksgiving}

  I want to wish all my blogging friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope that you give Thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ for His many blessings in your life. I am reminded today of a well known song, Count Your Blessings, Name them one by one, Count your blessings see what God has done, Count your blessings, Name them one by one...Count your many blessings see what God has done.  See you all after Thanksgiving.  Hugs and blessings, Cindy I have disabled comments this week.  ENJOY the FESTIVITIES. 

{Hunting, Shopping, and Christmas Decor} Fun times!

I Hope you've all had a great weekend. I sure have. I had a short weekend with my youngest daughter and her two girls hunting, shopping and drinking coffee but it was so nice for a quick getaway. Always good when time is spent with family.  This little thing is a hot mess. She finds this spot in Belk's and says, "take my picture Nana" . Mercy, mercy.  I did find me a pair of comfortable cute booties. YAY! The girl's daddy carried them on their first hunt to let them sit to see how they would do.  This one decided she would pose for the camera. But, she sorta gave up the idea of looking for a deer soon. I came back home from a short weekend hunting trip with what seemed like I had one hundred things I needed to do, you know, wash the hunting clothes, unload the dish washer, yada, yada, yada. But, I had not taken the time to go to the grocery store and wanted something hot and filling to eat. THEN I REMEMBERED! I had made homemade pot pies a few months back and dec

{It's All The Little Things That Make Me Smile}

  Hello everyone on this Sunday evening. Wanted to pop in and say, "It will take me two weeks or more to get used to the time change".  Anyone else? We have had two days of rain, light winds and colder weather in our neck of the woods. One good reason to stay home and start my Christmas decor but I did stop long enough to make a pot of Nanny Conner's Corn and Chicken chowder. Warmed my heart for sure and was surely good.  I put up a little cute girly Christmas tree for the youngest grandgirls in the their play room.  It sure doesn't take much to make those sweet littles happy.  My oldest granddaughter went to the annual Fall Ball. She was just stunning.  My favorite grandson looked so nice too.  I decided to drag out the old singer and make a table runner for my Christmas table. I haven't brought her out in a while but she still works well.  I had something in mind for my centerpiece for my dining table so while browsing Dollar General or it might have been Family
