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.

life-schedules, goals and plans....
I feel like my life is just overwhelming. I look at my house, my relationships, my responsibilities and I just don't even know where to start. I used to sort of have a schedule and it made my life so much easier, but somehow along the way my schedule got wadded up and threw away like a discarded piece of paper. Now you may be one of those that can do just find without a schedule but I need one. I set down to try to make one and I realized that before I can make a schedule I need to figure out what I want and need to accomplish in my days, weeks, months, life.
I started then thinking about my goals and I realized that in the past my goals have been too broad. I would for example say I want to lose 50 pounds, or organize my house but I didn't know how to reach these goals and then I read a great article. In this article, it said, set your goal and then make a plan of how to reach this goal, work on your goal, stick to it when it gets hard and if you do then you will reach your goal.
So, this is where I am, I am figuring out what I want to accomplish, making my plans and then I will be making my schedule so I can work my plan. I will be writing more about this as I make my way through this. I will let you know what has worked and where I might fail (I hope I don't fail). So what are you working on in your life? How is it going? Do you make goals? Do you have a schedule? Check back in the coming weeks to see how things are going with me.
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.
