My Grandma's House

My favorite place in all the world was my Grandpa and Grandma's house. I felt so loved and so safe. My dad and mom worked so hard and so many hours but my grandparents were retired. They had a huge garden that I just loved.
Life is different now with tv, phones and video games so grandparenting is not what I had always dreamed it would be.
Feeling like I don't measure up to the example I had. Sad!

Slick roads and stuck at home

Trying to focus today on the many promises God has published for us. Promises of grace and mercy.  Some days they seem to be for everyone else. Then a word flew off the page and landed on my heart. II Peter...His "precious" promises. Exceedingly great promises that will never run out and they're for me and you.

Psalm 51:7

Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
    wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

I have found that what makes using all one color pop is to use different textures.

Yesterday I spent the day with my two sisters and I have to tell you I am blessed.  The kind of family that warms your heart and strengthens your soul.  We're not together often but we don't skip a beat sharing our lives and doing a whole lot of laughing.  The love is a given, unconditional and true.

Today I had the amazing experience of coffee with a friend. In living with a grateful heart I have to mindfully be aware of God's blessings. Coffee with a friend is a blessing indeed. It's so easy when reading Facebook or scrolling through Pinterest to think about what would make me happy instead of sitting with a beautiful friend and letting God's warmth penetrate my body to heal my spirit. If you are reading this post I pray for you to feel God's warmth this weekend. Whether it is with your spouse, with a friend or with your Heavenly Father and a pumpkin latte. Let God warm you!

I often get a song in my head that lasts for days and this week was one of those weeks.  "I Surrender All".  Hadn't heard it for a long long time but God put it there for a reason.

What does it really mean.  What is God wanting me to change in my life?

I have not been sleeping well...worrying about a few things that are not mine to worry about so I am starting there.

It's Saturday...

My kids and my husband have always hated me on Saturdays so I am trying to change but at 59 it's hard.  Why do I think that saturday has to be all work and no play?

My sheets are clean and that is one thing I won't change but Tom and I have been going out for breakfast on the weekend and I find myself so looking forward to this time.  We stop and reconnect before the work begins.

May God bless your Saturday that leads into Sunday.
