Where do you start to Grow?

As I think about my word for 2016, first I had to think about where I am before I can think about where I am headed?
Where am I?  What do I want?  How do I want to grow?

God bless,

Twas The Week Before Christmas......

Twas the week before Christmas and all through my house this is what is still going on......

Presents still being made and painted and readied for who they are meant to go to......

So with less than a week, can I make it to this by Christmas day?

Merry Christmas and I will share some pictures of some of the stuff I made after they are finished and wrapped and given as gifts.  So if you want to see check back next week and see if I got done and what we made.  
I hope all of you have a blessed Christmas and that you will have time to relax and enjoy this wonderful time of year.
God bless, Pat

One Word 2016-Nervous, Excited and it is "Grow"

I am not sure if any of you have ever chosen a "word" for the year.  It is something I have done for a couple of years now after hearing about this from some friends.  It has not always turned out the way I thought but it has been a good experience.
     I know it is not quite 2016 but after praying and struggling some I know my word for 2016 is Grow.  I am prepared it may take me places I may stuggle to go but I know as I grow this year it will be with the Lord.
      I will be sharing more as 2016 arrives and as we go through the year.  I am sharing some verses that God has given me to use and to help me in this travel. The first two are for my personal growth.

The second is for my family
I am nervous and excited to see what God has for me and my family.  Are you choosing a word?  If you are and would like to share I would love to hear from you.  I also look forward to sharing more with you in the next year.
God bless, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2016!

When Grace SIngs-Makes You Think ( A Book Review)

When trouble roars into quiet Arborville, Alexa and Anna-Grace find themselves the target for discord and exposed secrets. Can they continue to seek the God of all grace amidst the fog of confusion?

"When Grace Sings" picks up where "When Mercy Rains" left us. This second book in the series continues the modern-day story of the Zimmerman Family and Alexa finds herself at the start of a new chapter in her life....I honestly had not read the first book but this one seemed to be interesting so when I got a chance to read it I jumped at it. Now having read this one, I will be reading the whole trilogy

Kim Sawyer has a gift of words....I was drawn into the characters and their personalities and lives. It was almost like I was there in the story. It is written about a time and place far removed from where and who I am but at the same time, it made me think about who I am and where I belong. It was a good relaxing read and yet makes you think too about your own life.
