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.

The Simple Woman's Daybook January 13, 2017
Looking out my window
I see a world before me and do they know Jesus
I am thinking
When they look at me or listen to me do they see Him or do they go, No, thanks?
I am thankful
That I get to home school my grands, it is so wonderful to watch them learn and grow and to see the light go off when they finally get something to click in their mind
One of my favorite things
Is reading. I love to read just for fun and also to grow in my life and relationship with God and others
I am creating
Nothing at the moment but will be working on some paintings, nothing fancy but just some basic sign type pictures
I am wearing
Blue workout pants and blue tshirt
I am reading
When I first found out about this book and that I was going to be on the launch team, I just not sure. I was thinking I am so overwhelmed now that I don't have time to add the overwhelming task of not only reading this but helping promote it too. But in my opinion it is well worth the time to read. Kathi and Cheri want to show you five surprising reasons why you become stressed, why social media solutions don't often work, and how you can finally create a plan that works for you. I highly recommend this book and one place you can find it is here:
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.
