And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.  Psalm 78:35

Happy Monday!

I had a busy weekend...delivered some product for my home business Friday evening, got my hair done on Saturday morning...worried needlessly on Saturday...had some prayer time with a good friend...church on Sunday...was prayed over two more times...went shopping with my husband...much better spirit on Sunday.  Capped the evening off with five special ...

Fear Not...

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.  2 Timothy 1:7

Happy TGIF!  Somehow it just seems the Fridays come along fairly quickly...at least they seem that way to me.  And it's partly due to the fact that I have more things to do than I have time to do them.  The plates are rapidly spinning out of control.  That's my best analogy.  It always seems to fit.  Sometimes getting back in co...

Happy Wednesday!

Alright...I had the best start to my evening!  I sat with my new, little Grand-Baby!  It was absolutely glorious!  I got to sing a song to him.  'Jesus Loves  Me, this I know...for the bible tells me so'.  I was a bit worried at first thinking that once my daughter placed JR in my arms,&...

The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord.  Psalm 16:1

Happy Monday!

I'm not even sure where to begin with this blog entry.  As you can probably guess...I've been a little busy!  My daughter and son-in-law delivered their son...Clayton Durrone' Stanberry, Jr. last Wednesday, April 16th.  His original due date was this coming Saturday, April 26th.  The days last week got so jumbled in my head that ...

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.  1 Corinthians 15:58

Happy Tuesday!

Have you ever had times where you 'caught' yourself pondering over things that you should not be pondering?  Have you sometimes felt like your efforts were invisible?  Does it often times appear that your accomplishments are not be...

Great is Thy Faithfulness...

It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:22, 23

Happy TGIF!!

We have to be thankful and happy today.  God has gotten us through another week...the spring weather seems to be in Cleveland finally and we are slowly approaching one of the holiest days of the Christian year.  At least in my eyes, it is.  Even though my body se...

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.  Psalm 51:10  Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.  Psalm 51:12

Happy Wednesday! 

Sometimes when I sit here at my keyboard, it's really a challenge to focus in on the specific 'thought' that is driving all the other thoughts in my head.  In the mornings especially, because my available time is extemely limited.&...

Our Words!

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.  Psalm 19:14

Happy Tuesday!

Sometimes we don't always know how hurtful the way we say things can be to the recipient.  I am betting there are times we are more pleasant to our co-workers than we are to the family we share our homes with...our brothers, sisters, parents, significant others...even our spouses.  We can 'be oursel...
