not lucky, just BLESSED


today has been a good day. it is st.patrick's day.. we have been busy today. we have had the past two days off together. we have been working on a few projects here, getting ready for the upcoming warmer weather. being lucky has nothing to do with us , we are truly blessed, everyday.. in many ways... we were talking today, of some things we have been wanting lately... and not jumping into something, before it was the right thing.. we are glad HE knows what is best for us, and he gives us what He wants.. not in our timing, but HIS.. when He gives us His best, it is our ''pot of gold''.. and he let's us be reminded of His blessings everyday..just like a rainbow, HE puts every color in it, just like HE puts every detail in our life, perfectly.. SO THANKFUL OF THIS TODAY....

Be careful fo nothing; but in every thing by prayer and suppication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Phillipians 4:6

and flavor it with PRAYER!!!

spring forward

we are finally moving forward with a new season.. spring is just a week away!! we change the time AHEAD tonight!! i can hardly wait!! i love the longer days!! i look forward to it, especially when i walk out the doors after a HARD days work, and stilll have a little bit of daylight left.

it is beginning to get a little warmer.. we still have some cool mornings, but warm throughout the day.

we are looking forward to the warmer weather. we have had a rougher than usual winter.. it snowed here about 3 times.. you can always tell when the seasons are changing.. the birds start a different ''tune'', and everything gains it's life back.. people get out more and do things as families..looking forward to all of that and more..

we will be celebrating my bro-in-law's birthday tonight.. i am hungry..and wanting something good to eat..

spring is getting springier(IF SUCH A WORD)..more and more every day. these buttercups have recently bloomed in the yard.. i love the looks of these pretty, and perfectly shaped, and bloomed out..and they just beam with pride.. our pear tree is beginning to bloom out some also, along with a few tulips.. i love tulips, they just don't last very long..

our week has been coming a long just fine..not very much has happened.. i was busy today here at home, doing laundry..and washing dishes, cleaned the kitchen a little..things like that.. i went to run an errand, came back, went to work for a meeting.. chris and i are both off tommorrow..looking forward to seeing and spending time with him..

Do the very best that you can, and leave the outcome to God.
