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.

Quiet Corner, Santuary?
I have a group on facebook and the main point of it is to encourage one another to have our daily quiet time with God. I was thinking this morning about my quiet time and is it really quiet? Having quiet time is not just reading the bible, but it is reading, meditating, praying and listening to God. How can you have true "quiet time" if it is not quiet? I think sometimes we have trouble hearing God cause we have so much noise in our lives. I know at my house, it is rare for the TV, music, or both to not be going pretty much 24/7.
My goal this week is to find a spot, create a spot, even just a corner in a room, that I can use to have my quiet time. I want a place that I can go to and read my bible, talk to God and relax and listen to what He has to say to me. Do you have such a spot? If not, why not join me, make you a spot for you and God. If you have one or make one, I would love to see pictures and when I get mine done, I will come back and share pictures of mine.
I am off to think, look around and create......
God bless, Pat
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
Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here. I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone. I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts. I am just not sure what to do. I really enjoy writing the blog but......
I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens. Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog. I will choose a winner from all the comments.
Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway,
