happy new year

Beautiful snowy trees in the backyard last week
I can't believe it is the end of this year. it just seems as though it just began... it is amazing how time flies... we had a great Christmas.. and now, it's time to wind down this year..get things put back in their ''normal'' spot, and go forward... in some areas in my life, I hope things will be better..and I hope to improve on some things too.. I am putting some things behind me, and going on for the Lord..

this past year has been tough in some areas.. it has brought tears, fears, dissapointments, and trials...but it has also brought joy, and happiness, and a sense of accomplishment. I am grateful for that.. and I praise the Lord for every trial..

I have been praying about several things.. and we are just trusting the Lord in all of those areas.. we will be celebrating with some family tommorrow.. my mama will have her traditional new year's meal...we call it the luck meal.......I wish everyone of you in Bloggerland a safe and Happy New Year.. and pray that the Lord will bless you in all that you do..

We celebrated Christmas with my family last night. We really are soooo blessed. we get so much, and much more than we deserve. It makes me so thankful, and yet, I still think of those who did not have hardly anything under the tree....

We were suppossed to celebrate tonight with Chris' side of the family. They were scheduled to come here to our home. The weather did not cooperate. We ended up with about 5 inches of snow. It was a first for see a White Christmas.. It was so beautiful..Anyway, we are celebrating maybe in the next week....

We did not get to go to church today.. It seems so weird, not being there.. I miss it a lot. Ready for another week, and then ready for some rest... I hope everyone still has a great time being with their families, and have a fun time in this snow..

thank you JESUS for another CHRISTmas!YOU'VE been so good to us this year!!
You've made burdens lighter, and dark days brighter, and thanks for lovedones we hold dear.
thank you JESUS for another CHRISTmas! let's love each other more next year, may your days be merry and bright!making CHRIST YOUR SAVIOUR AS YOUR LIGHT!!
It has been a busy week so far.. we have been scurrying around buying those last minute gifts. we have had a great time seeing family, baking with my sisters and mama, and we had our Church CHRISTmas party last night. it was the last time in the ''old'' fellowship building. We will be moving into the new fellowship building this upcoming year. These next few days are going to be busy, but take time out to thank the LORD for all HE has done for you this year. many of us have lost loved ones this past year. it has been tough. We are so blessed with what we have and what the LORD has done for us.!!

the Christmas rush is here...we have been really busy trying to work, and get all the shopping done.. i still have baking to do with my family, and wonder when I am going to finish my last few gifts to buy.. WHEW!! i AM READY FOR A BREAK.. a restful break with no where to go, no where to be at a certain time..just me and the sweets..enjoying Christmas and each other..

the sad thing for most people is on the is over... but MY Christmas is a 365 days a year thing.. I have Christmas EVERYDAY.. Jesus is the best gift you could ever want, and he just keeps on giving. He never breaks, or doesnt fit.. He never runs out of batteries.. HE has all the power in the world..... He is a gift you never want to return, but a gift you want to give ALWAYS!!! AND THE BEST THING IS ..He is GOD'S GREATEST GIFT, ever show the world.

Christmas Spirit

We have had lots of stuff going on. Our church went on a Faith Family Retreat in Pigeon Forge, last weekend. We had lots of fun. It was great to get away and see the beautiful lights and get in the Christmas spirit. We went to Dollywood, and shopped and ate some really good food... I have a lot of shopping still left to do. It is hard to buy for people who have everything. I , personally like the green stuff.. it fits everybody..and you can always use it. It amazes me how people , during Christmas, don't ever remember what Christmas is all about. They put everything else in front of HIM. After all, it is HIS birthday we celebrate.
It is going to be busy these next few weeks, but try to STOP and remember the REASON for the Season.

Get A Life

I feel as though I may need to clear my mind or ''tell it as it is'' on some things that have occured over the past week... I have had this brewing for a few days now.. It may seem a little bitter, I am NOT bitter, just mainly hurt.. but I know the Lord is going to take care of this situation along with another situation my FAMILY and I have dealt with for over a year now.. you know, people will fail you.... some of these people used to be people you actually spent quality time with on a regular basis..some sat in the same church as you did, some actually , were really close.. you watched relationships form, and some of these people you thought would be the last ones to do certain things...WRONG!!!

I have a little message for these certain people...Get a LIFE!!!! if you have time to down other people's character, and tell false things about someone or something that you know is NOT true..Get a LIFE!!! if you have time to sit around the computer and stir up mischeif about someone and try to ruin their testimony, GET A real ((JOB )) FIRST, THEN get a life!!!!!!

If you have time to go behind closed doors, and try to figure out ways to ''take something from someone'' that you know rightfully is their's to begin with, you need to get a life, while I get me a good lawyer...... ''Thou shalt NOT steal'' IT is a commandment.. and the sad thing about this is, these ''people'' are putting their trust in worldy things, than the things of GOD...shame, shame... It is also shameful because they have not put their heart and lives into this, and something that my family has worked Hard for all these years... and now, it seems as though it is is gone..gone forever...hmmmm.. but my father owns the cattle on the thousand hills, and he owns everything on those hills as well.. I just know, I could not be that envious and look my own family in the eye.. and know I had done something like that.. That is hurtful..and deceitful. The LORD WILL DEAL WITH THOSE PEOPLE.. and somwhere down the line, it will come back to bite them.. just sayin..He will judge..

envy is such a bad thing...and always relates in evil doings..

James 3 :16 For where envy and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

People do things and for the most part do them with intentions to destroy someone or their testimony..some people are just jealous of others.

Pride is something that along this same line too... Pride will keep a man or woman from serving God with their WHOLE heart.. They let things and other people stand in the way of giving it ALL to Him...

Proverbs 28: 25-26 He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the Lord shall be made fat. He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

I know my LORD is gonna stand by me, and my family, and my other friends . W e put our full trust in Him.. HE has never failed, never let us down, and we are gonna keep on keeping on for Him.... and for those people, get God in YOUR hearts, and then everything else along with your Life will fall into place....

Repent.. repent and ask God to forgive you of your wrong.. Ask the other person for forgiveness..and quit the things you are doing...

Repentance was perhaps best defined by a lille girl that said, '' It's to be sorry enough to quit."

blah, right now as i type this.....i am coughing my head off..... i had this ''crud'' a few weeks ago, and it went away after several bottles of robitussin and mucinex...yesterday, i was around a guy who had a terrible cough, and was sneezing like crazy.... by nitefall last night, i was again, back in this same shape... i went to the doctor today for something else, but while there got treated for an upper respiratory infection.. i got some cough medicine, antibiotics, and a few other things..

i hope to feel better just in time for the big day on thursday..

this year, thanksgiving will be will be our first big holiday without Uncle Vick it is so hard to believe he has been gone for almost five months... i miss him.. i miss his voice when i call my aunt, i miss him greeting me on my grandmother's front porch, as we pull in to her yard on thanksgiving.. i am sure he is going to be having the best thanksgiving Heaven..

i feel kind of blah, right now..just kind of hard to ''feel the hoildays''.. the weather here has been unusually doesn't feel like November... i went on friday to get my hair done, hoping to make myself feel a little better, and we had sigma saturday on saturday, met with some friends on friday for supper, it was fun... i have been dealing with a few personal things, i have had a few disapointments come my way, and i have been sad about some decisions made by a few other people.. but i am giving it to the Lord..He knows what is best..and will give me everything in His time..and will give me the desires I have, according to His will.

I am getting better day by day but it seems to be getting the best of me.. please pray I feel better soon. He blesses us with so much everyday, we are so undeserving of His goodness..

fun, fall weekend

Last weekend, we had a great Ladie's trip to mrs.ava's house in the mountains.we had a fun time of food, fellowship, food, shopping, movies, laughs,food...ok, you get the picture...
we spent the morning traveling to her house. we visited the Mast General Store, and this beautiful park, then shopped till we dropped, and ate at a great place, called the mountain house. we returned to the others that were staying at the house watching movies. we watched a movie with them, then gathered in the dining room for funny stories, and snacks, and a short devotion.

On saturday, we got up and ate a great breakfast. some of us took advantage of more shopping, visiting local thrift stores, a great yard sale, and a trip to the outlets...i got a great deal at the yard sale..2 kayaks, a 4 person raft, all the paddles, and a pump for 40 bucks...i am proud to say they all blow up just fine... lol
after baking a batch of brownies, and eating lunch, we cleaned up and gathered our stuff to head back home. we had a great time of fellowship, and I needed it so much.

we have returned from a wonderful, relaxing, restful vacation... we have got to see and do many things. we have celebrated 8 years of marriage...i love my husband more and more, everyday. it is so comforting to know, you were meant just for each other, and you can share, and laugh together... i love our time together, not just away on vacation, but everyday, and every moment together is priceless....

we did something a little different this year for vacation..we rented a house on an island.. it was a lot of house for just two people, but we enjoyed every minute of it. we went fishing, cooked some meals, ate out, shopped, laughed, walked 178 steps to the top of the tallest lighthouse in Ga..and spent many precious moments with each other...

it was great to sit on the roof top deck to watch the sunrise and sunsets together.. we rocked in the rockers.and loved walking on the beach.. the weather was just perfect..near 90 degrees everyday..

Sunday, was a great day in miss it soooo much when you are away, and it is true, there is none like your own church..God has been so good to us.. i was sooo anxious to get back because a dear man of God, in our church, had passed away in the beginning of the week..we were away and could not be there for the funeral..i felt awful...but was able to talk with the family, on sunday, and felt much better about it...praise THE LORD we will see him again..!!!

monday and tuesday, we both were off, so we decided to load the boat and go fishing AGAIN..

after some ''minor''issues, on both days, we finally got the boat straightened out..and proceeded with our little fishing excursion again...between yesterday and today , we caught a total of 9..i believe... it was fun..i caught the we had a ball... we had two delicious picnics, and enjoyed just being together...

i am very thankful for my hubby, and these 8 years have been great, and precious to me..

Thank you Lord for your blessings on me!!

Ecclesiates 3:1 To every thing there is a season , and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

happy fall to everyone!! we love this time of the year. the cool mornings, and warmer afternoons are quite enjoyable. i had a great time sleeping in this morning.. i love my sleep.. we love this time of the year.. beautiful leaves turning, fair time, weekend trips to the mountains, get the picture.... i am going to put up some fall decorations this afternoon....

the change of seasons always amaze me... i love them all...winter is my least favorite... but to think that the Lord has all of this in His hands... He has it under control.. He makes everything beautiful... beautiful snow in the winter...spring brings pretty buds and new life, summer brings warmth, and fall brings beautiful change upon us...

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He hath made everything beautiful in his time; also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
we are looking forward to a great weekend... our annual Sigma Rush night will be Sunday night.. we are looking forward to a great year in Sigma with the teens...

Tuesday, September 21, 2010


this has been a tough week. our week started off with a hard hit.. for a second time in seven years, we have had to replace the water pump on our well.. it was '' fried'' again. this was a hard hit to us, mainly financially.. it was over 400.oo to replace it... that is a hunk of change when you don't expect it... but He always provides for us!!! He always gives us what we need, when we need is a good thing when we depend on HIM..

Psalms 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation, Selah.

He is so faithful to provide us with the benefits and things we need each day. Praise Him for everyday things, including SHELTER, food, clothing, safe travel, a job, and so on..

Another thought.. a home, just a few miles from us, today, exploded and was destoyed by fire. Thank God the couple was able to get out right before it exploded... We are thankful for home, and for the home HE gave us eight years ago. It was truly, without a doubt, HIS will for us to have this house..

This week, also, means we are a little closer to some much needed time away.. looking forward to just ''chillin out'' for a week, and doing nothing much... I am ready.

my ME time

Personal time is very important.It is a time to be alone and reflect, rest,or regather yourself. It, for me, is a personal time of devotions, prayer time, and a time for writing down thoughts, goals, and personal stuff. It always ends in praise to the Lord for everything He has done!!

I have enjoyed my personal time this week. It has given me time to reflect on what the week's events held, what has or has NOT been accomplished,and what is to come in the next few weeks.

Everyone should have a personal time, away from it all. It can be anywhere. It can be at home in your living room, at your dining room table, on your bed, in a swing in your yard.. I love coffee shops, tea rooms, and book stores..For me, yesterday, it was in my pool.. We still have not closed the pool yet, due to hot days here.. but I know those days will soon be over, so, I choose to take advantage while I still can...LOL.. and I love it...I love fall, but I drag summer out to the very end!!!!! It was a hot, beautiful day, and I wanted to let the sunshine fall, and I could feel it's warmth all around me.. It reminded me of His love for us... The beauty of Him was all around, and it was enjoyable to have it near and dear.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and heavy laiden, and I will give you rest.

take time out for you physically too. Get hair done, nails, geta pedicure..(LOVE THESE) . rest your body..get a massage, give yourself a facial.. take care of your self.

Each day, start by giving it back to Him. He gave it to you to use for His glory.Let Him lead you in every opportunity, option, decision. I like to set personal goals for the week. It doesn't always mean they ALL get accomplished. Some of my personal goals this week included preparing for the new Sigma year, organization of my kitchen, and giving myself some personal attention physically, a mud mask to my face,,lol......During your ''me'' time, write down those goals, prayer requests, and never forget the Praises... that always helps me, because we never can do this enough!!!! WE ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO PRAISE HIM FOR.. HE HAS BEEN GOOD TO US!!

always have a grateful attitude. I try to be a good witness, and to ask the LORD to help me at work, home, wherever I may be.

Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicene: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Take some time out this week to have that personal time with God. Allow Him to use you for His honor and glory.

'' Fully trusting??''

TRUST- sometimes, we find this a hard thing to do. it is easy to get in a rut of doing it on ''our own'', and not depending on our Heavenly Father, to help us through. things happen beyond our control. the washing machiene quits, your well pump burns up, or you might have to do some work on a vehicle. these things happen when we least expect it. we want to do everything on our own to ''fix'' the problem, without relying on Him to help us in the situation. in the end, we realize we can't make it without Him. He is whom we place our trust, and He will provide.

Some take life ''as it comes''. ''Roll with the punches'' to speak. Are we fully trusting in Him to see us through??
Psalms 73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.
Psalms 40:4 Blessed is the man that maketh the Lord his trust.
only JESUS can satisfy and help us through our ups and downs of life. they will come. and sometimes when we least expect them to. Trusting in Him makes all the difference in the world. in HIS TIME, will come the new car, (sigh...). new furniture.. all the material things don't matter...
Psalms 9 :10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou,
Lord, has not forsaken them that seek thee.
sometimes, we need to do a ''reality check'' on our own lives. we have to reshape, rethink, and rededicate.
''reshape''.. take out the old, and go for the new. remove those things that stop us from fully trusting in Him. confess our faults..EVERYBODY has them.. I know I have plenty.. have true JOY in your life.
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righttousness; and ALL these things shall be added unto you.
''rethink''..- what can I do for HIM?? He has done so much for me?? give Him time, talents, job.?? Prioritize.. and think about what really matters. Jesus, IS ALL THAT MATTERS.
'' rededicate''.. give it all to Him. seek HIM in all you do, and do what you can for GOD.
There will be no excuses in HEAVEN.
He is with us always, and it is so good to know we can trust Him. He never fails. Trust in Him for even the little things that come our way.
Exodus 33 :14 And he said,''My presence shall go with thee , and I will give thee rest.''
i needed this today.. this was just part of what I studied today in devotion. I need to trust Him more, even for the small things.
'' Turn your eyes upon JESUS, look full in His wonderful face. And the ''things'' of earth, will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.'' AMEN.

never forget 9/11

Thankful for the troops serving our country, and for the everyday heros who give their time to protect us and our freedom. we are grateful for those who risk their lives everyday to help those in need.

cooler temps= FALL

cooler temps have arrived here in the upstate this week, and that means fall is just around the corner..this is one of my favorite times of the year.. time for hot soups, football, fair time,and beautiful fall leaves, and then it will be vacation time for us two, and then Christmas will be here before we know it..

we have had a great revival this past week..still feasting off of those great messages, and then a great day yesterday at Church. He always knows when we need it most!!!

SEND down Thy likeness from above, and let this my adorning be: Clothe me with wisdom, patience, love, and lowliness and purity. Joachim Lange

busy as bees

we have been busy as bees here at my little ''love nest'' this week. Chris has been working and I have too.. we have been in revival all week with Bro. Tony Hutson. It is always a great revival, and he is one of my favorite preachers. as for me... you can tell what I have been up to these past few weeks. the apples, on my trees were loaded in the spring, then as it became dryer weather, they began to fall off..the ones left on the trees ripened quickly.. so, I did not want them to waste, so, I began my usual ''fall time ritual'' and started my apple butter.. I have made 3 runs so far. I think it is pretty.

I always love this time of the year.. but I hate to see summer leave us.. I love summer time, spent with family and friends.... my niece, Corrie, just turned 21 yesterday.... whew..where does the time go?????? It won't be long and Chris and I will be celebrating 8 years of marriage..we are looking forward to our annual anniversary trip together...can't wait!!!

He is my sweets!!

this is a picture of a few of the apples we picked off of our trees.. they were so beautiful with the colors..
