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.

Looking out my window I see a wonderful sunshiny day
I am thinking about how judgmental we can be be and then suddenly we are the one being judged and it is all different then
I am thankful for praying friends
One of my favorite things is watching my granddaughters practice and learn to play volleyball, they try so hard
I am wearing blue exercise pants and my home is..... tshirt
I am creating these cute little bird feeders with my grandsons and I will share them next time after they get them made
I am reading
This was a gift from my son and has been such a blessing, with daily devotions titled such as Sunday Afternoon Naps and Bird watching. It so takes me back to my childhood in the country but closer to God also.
I am hoping to get everything ready for the grands whom I will be homeschooling all 4 this fall in preschool, 1st, 2nd and 4th
I am learning to let go and let God and learning it is easier said than done
In my kitchen I am trying to learn to cook healthier but when stuff like cornbread and milk and sweet tea call my name it is hard
In the school room I am checking this out for the younger 2 grands for the beginning of school as our school is called God's Froggie Homeschool
In my garden
Nothing at the moment but am hoping to soon have some plants in the ground and pictures next time
This is a link to the above that I am looking into for the grands
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.
