The verse I found peace in today is Philippians 4:6  "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God."

Today I am thankful for .......clouds and the cooler temperatures
                                            Timberline Church
                                            McDonalds Dollar Menu
                                            green grass
                                            trees and their beauty when the colors change
                                            pink roses
                                            books to read
                                            my pottery kiln

Everyone have a wonderful day!

Today is the middle of the week - when working a Monday-Friday job it was always fun to know the week was half way over.  Now that I have reached retirement that wonderful HUMP day is just a reminder that time flies faster the older you get!

I am Thankful for...the bees that pollinate our plants            
                             smiling faces
                             running water
                             my camera
                             my childhood memories
                             my sewing machine
                             Christian radio

God's Word spoke to me today and the verses that stand out are Matthew 6:1-4  "Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them.  Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.  Therefore when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have the glory from men.  Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly." 

Blessings to all

TODAY I am thankful for...

Today I remember a favorite verse, Psalm 136:1  "Oh, give thanks to the Lord for He is good!  For His mercies endures forever."  I need to remember to be thankful and give praise to Him not only when life seems to be perfect but also when I meet those darn obstacles.

I am thankful today
                                for being free to worship God
                                for a beautiful sunrise
                                that I am able to visit my daughter Melissa
                                my car starts
                                my Mother is 89 and still has a good quality of life
                                I have socks to wear
                                the warm sunshine
                                breakfast ( I do love to eat!)
                                for "Derby"
                                my Bible (it was first my Dad's)
The list could go on for ever.  There is so much we take for granted that people in 3rd world countries can't ever imagine to have. 


TODAY I am reflecting on my past and where my path will now lead.  I just have to remember I can't drive alone but have to follow my navigator's (GOD) instructions.  My blog has gone rather dormant and needs some direction.  I get started and then procrastinate (something I seem to do well).

In my blog I want to put God first and share what he has done not only for me but for everyone.  I also want to share other things I am passionate about:  my family, my pottery and other art or craft that I do, my animals, recipes, etc.

So here goes on a new format of posts for me.
