Every day is a journey from when I wake up in the morning till I go to sleep at night or the next morning. Some Journeys are short, and some are long. Many journeys have a trial or two along the way, but what is great about my journeys, no matter what, I know my Lord is in complete control. I have to remember every trial, great or small is for His glory! (For we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 kjv) Every journey and every trial through that journey has a purpose. HIS GLORY!
So may the Lord help me to glorify Him through every trial.
Yesterday after lunch my daughter and I was washing dishes, just enjoying the moment. She turned her music on from the new cd of Joseph Habedank, and I got the bluetooth speaker connected. There are really some great songs on his new cd and it made cleaning a breeze.
Spending time together in whatever way are priceless moments to me. Quality time spent with family and friends to look back on.
Washing dishes with my daughter makes me remember when my sister and I did the same. One would wash and one would rinse, and we would go to singing and laughing. That is one of my best memories because it was quality time spent together.
There are times when the ladies in the church get together to clean or serve. Even though we are working we are also having a good time of fellowship while we work. We always find something to laugh and carry on about.
I’m so thankful for these little moments in my life to look back on.
Thankful for my family, friends and especially for the good Lord who takes care of us, loves us, and makes all things possible.
O give thanks unto the Lord ; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
Psalms 105:1 KJV
Back in 1984, I committed my life unto the Lord after he saved me and changed my heart. In no way am I perfect, but I have been forgiven.
I am so thankful that He loves me, and my sins are forever forgotten.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 KJV
Committed unto the Lord, I give my life,
To be a servant and each day a better wife.
A mom, grandma, and a teacher too
desiring to please God, whatever I do.
I want to be a light, and with my heart share,
Desiring to help others,for I really do care.
Through His word, prayer, and songs,
To Him, I know to Him my life belongs.
Paper, paper,paper, my cat loves paper. Any time she hears the sound of paper being scrunched, her ears perk up and she is in the attack mode. I make a paper ball, throw it, and she is off running and rolling. The cheapest toy ever. She carries it, bats it, and sits on it. That paper ball has become one of her best friends.
Today I was cutting out a pattern on the floor and she decides she wanted to get in the middle and have a sit, like that’s where she belonged. Silly cat.😼
My daughter had found this beautiful white kitten on the side of the house lost and in need of a home.
And of course she wanted to be the caretaker. My husband said, he felt the Lord sent it for her, so we adopted her and she is now our house cat, named Snow.
So if your in need of a cheap toy for your cat, just make a paper ball and they will come running.
Some days it’s really hard not to meddle,especially as a mom. I really have to pray for the good Lord to help me not to say anything when I (as in this flesh) really want to. I just go before the Lord in prayer for my children that he might speak to their hearts and give them wisdom to make the right decisions in their daily lives.
I am so very blessed with a wonderful family, and do my best not to meddle even though I’m sure I fail at times,but am working on it.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 KJV

There are times on Sundays, when my husband is getting ready for church he will take a few minutes and give his shoes a good polish. Even if I think they look nice and shiny he is working on them to make them look even shinier.
When I think of the definition of polish,which there are several, I think about my life for the Lord. How through his mercy he allows us every day to live for him. He works daily in our lives polishing us, smoothing out what is within us for His glory. We sing “This Little Light of Mine”, I’m going to let it shine, but we can’t shine without a good polish, good buff, and a good rub.
Oh, that my life might shine as the Lord smooths out the rough spots, and gives me a good polish.
As I sit here waiting my turn for further testing to be done today, I know our Lord is in complete control. Your mind can wander here and there when you receive a notice of abnormal results from a mammogram, and need to do more testing.
Marlin and I prayed this morning before he left for work and the Lord has given me the peace not to be overcome with anxiousness.
I rode to the doctor with my dear friend Donna and I have friends and family that have prayed and everything is in God’s hands.
So our trials can be blessings as he gives us sweet peace to get through them.
Just had test, and all clear, Praise Jesus!
To God be the glory for great things he has done!!!
