Time flies when you are having fun!

I have neglected my blog! There are good reasons- the month of April came and it started with quiet days and mornings spent with cups of coffee and sometimes hours of quiet time-honestly reading God’s word and devotions and studying. It was a time of building up.

Next -comes the family of five to stay until their house is finished.

Meme loves having her girls here- it is never a dull moment-or should I say quiet moment.

Then there was Easter- a blessed day in our family- every member of our family was at church together this Easter- plus extended family.


I put this on Face book:

‎59 years ago two people pledged their love, the day after she graduated. Although they had dated since she was 16 and he was 17~It wasn't supposed to last. Two weeks later he flew overseas and served his country. Five years later they had their first little man, two years later came the first girl, three years later the second girl and in their 18th year of marriage what a precious golden haired boy came as a present to them all. The children all grew up good because the Daddy loved the Momma well, just like the Bible says. Now the children have had children who have given them children. All of this from living a life that is pleasing to the one who gave us life~Thank you GOD.

All because two people fell in love…


Next came the April tornados


The day of the tornado we went in our laundry room with pillows and took a mattress to put over us- the girls were truly scared and at one point began to cry –the power had failed and the sound outside was very loud-so Meme  did the only thing she knows to do when times are hard-I began to pray out loud and at one point felt like I was being very loud over the noise, then there was a calm. We went out and found hail that was bigger than a golf ball  in our yard, it went through a screen and broke an upstairs window. We had some shingles blown off the roof. But the tornado had lifted about one mile away and gone right over the top of us.

Devastation everywhere around our county- we were spared. We were without power for 6 days. A few of those I left and flew to Dallas with my best friend Barbie and her Mom. It was planned before any of this happened. It was a great trip.

The month of May was filled with softball and t-ball games, friends and family time.  My baby girl got engaged to the best young man around.



June has roared in with a trip to Memphis –I got to see Michael Buble’ in concert again and spend the weekend with Barbie, Juju and Charlene, Barbies Mom. I have swam, got another year older, enjoyed life and been busy.

I thank God for my blessings everyday- I have more than I deserve and I know I am loved by the KING of KINGS! Just today He told me this…

I have loved YOU with an everlasting Love. Before time began, I knew you. For years you swam around in a sea of meaninglessness, searching for love , hoping for hope. All that time I was pursuing you, aching to embrace you in my compassionate arms.

When time was right I revealed myself to you. I lifted you out of that sea of despair and set you down on a firm foundation. Sometimes you felt naked –exposed to the revealing light of my Presence. I wrapped an ermine robe around you: my robe of righteousness. I sang you a Love song, whose beginning and end are veiled in Eternity. I infused meaning into your mind and harmony into your heart. Join me in singing My song. Together we will draw others out of darkness into My marvelous Light.  (Jesus Calling-June 14th)

How can you not LOVE a God like that! How can you not want to serve Him?


Be blessed! I am!
