I am going to be spending the next two days with my scrapbooking friends.   We get together about 4 times a year.  We scrap together, share our lives with each other, encourage and just have lots of laughter and fun together.  I think we all need to get away from the daily routine of life and enjoy sweet fellowship with like believers.  HIStory Keepers is the name of our group and we hope to pass on to the next generation, our lives and our faith in God.
Right now I am working on a life journal.
Would love to hear what you enjoy doing!

The Lord's Day

I just love Sundays,  worshipping with family and friends.  I love singing my heart out to the Lord and give Him all the praise due Him.
A day of rest from the rest of the week.  I try not to do much on a Sunday, but just enjoy peace and rest.  
I am thankful to have a church that teaches God's truths.  I am thankful for friends that love the Lord with all their hearts.  I am thankful for friends that walk with me through this journey of life,  sharing my joys and my sorrows, as I share in theirs.   We uphold one another to the Father in prayer and fellowship.
I am thankful for God's Word, which I am free to read and meditate on everyday.  Starting the day with the Lord.....well, it is life giving.  In His presence is fullness of joy!
Hope that you are resting in the Lord on this the day that He has made.

Is there such a word as randomness?  I just tried to look it up and could not find it, so I guess I possibly made a new word....well,  it is very thought provoking when one celebrates a siblings 70th birthday.   It makes one stop and reflect over their past life and think about the future.   I am the youngest of 4 children and I came late in life.  ( My siblings are much older than me).....I tease them about that all the time.  :)  Our oldest sibling passed away a year ago.
So I encourage you to stop and think about your life and what the future will be like.  I know for me I want to love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength till I go home to be with Him.

I was so excited that I won a prize.  I have not won many things in my life.  It is not a big thing, just something small.  Something that will be useful to me.  It was part of a scrapbooking blog that I belong to.  Do you scrapbook?  Right now I am working on a life journal.  I am hoping to pass it on to my children and grandchildren.  What excites you?

It has been a great summer!  Where I live it has been unusually warm and humid!  I have so enjoyed it because the winters are too long here.  I live where we have 4 seasons and I enjoy them all.  My favorites are spring and fall.  I do like the winters too, that is when I can cuddle up in my home and get some projects done, like knitting, scrapbooking, reading and sewing.  What do you like to do?

Well, these sure were some random things.  Be blessed this day!

its been a long time

I know I keep saying that I will do better at this whole blog thing......sorry that I have not been doing that.
A new beginning!

I love to spend time with the Lord in His word every morning!  Just Him and me!
How about you are you doing that?  What is He showing you.

I am so glad that I do spend time with Him in the morning, because I never know what my day will hold.  So glad that it is the day that He has made and I am glad and rejoice in it.   So feeding on His Word in the morning is so important for me.

I have had a full summer so far.....working alot at our business, (which I am usually just in the background) helping out where needed and then helping my nephew to raise 7 children on his own...long story, and sick in-laws.  Doing a Nehemiah study with Beth Moore and her blog world.
I am learning this summer about His steadfast love!  He is faithful!  I truly can follow Him and His leading.  I just need to ask Him for everything and I mean everything.  He cares about it all, the big and the small.

When life seems out of control, remember He is not!  He is steadfast!
Hopefully, I will be on here more sharing what God is doing in my life.
So how about you?  Would love to hear what God is doing in your life.
