My life is ever approaching the empty nest time of life. Now, I spend my time spoiling grands, exploring making crafts, reading and my church. My blogposts will most likely be about these things in my life. Also book reviews and contests as love reading. Hope you will enjoy your visit and come again to see what is happening here.

Blessings and a Giveaway!
I have been trying to count my blessings more and be more thankful. Yesterday I posted on here about being a blessing to others and how you will be blessed. I have been blessed by so many people in so many ways especially these last few months while hubby was unemployed.
I have been challenging others to be a blessing also. So I decided to do a blessings giveaway on here. I have two purse sized calendars 2011/2012 with stickers to mark special days and pens to write down stuff in them. To win all you need to do is this-comment on my blog or on the post on facebook where this posts and tell me someone you would like to be a blessing to or someone who has blessed you and how. If you post about this on your blog or on facebook you get an extra entry and if you post on both and comment you will get 3 entries. On next Thursday March 17th I will draw a winner from all entries and you will win both calendars and pens, one for you and one for you to be a blessing to someone.
I look forward to seeing lots of entries. I have this all ready to mail as soon as a winner is announced and I get your address to mail it. So get ready and share a blessing.....
From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year. I pray God will richly bless you this year. Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be. We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy
Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :( Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday. Who or what would you still have? Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything? Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions. I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life. I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well. God bless, Pat
I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time. I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up. I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God. I am now choosing faith over fear. Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.
There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country. They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in. We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God. We have to choose faith over fear.
