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.

When this year started I set some goals for me to accomplish. As the year has gone by for a couple of weeks now, I am seeing that some goals are going to be easier to meet than others. This doesn't mean I am giving up on them yet, it just means that I am going to be doing checkups through the year to see how I am doing and possibly making some adjustments.
One thing I am doing really good on is reading my bible through in a year. I have finished the whole book of Genesis and am on to reading Matthew now. I know there are several different reading plans but this is the one I am following. I am also doing much better on keeping my home organized and keeping things to a minimum. It feels good to wake up in the mornings and not feel I am already behind. Other goals they really needed this checkup.
How are you doing on your goals for 2014? Do you need to do a checkup? I'd love to hear how it is going for you too.
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.
