God is teaching me this whether I want to learn this or not.  Sometimes we learn lessons not even knowing it.  Not feeling well after having blood drawn.  I rarely have to have any drawn, very thankful for that after today's ordeal.  All is good, however.  Any lessons you are being taught my friends?  Would love to hear!

My Reedemer lives

I know my Reedeemer lives and in the end he will stand on the earth.

Have a great and blessed day!
A smile and a hug to all!

What makes you happy?

This is a conscious choice for me.  Just taking a minute, or day at a time.  Right now writing this post is making me happy.  Jesus is good.  Who knew sharing my feelings with you would make me happy.   My own free therapy session!  Who knew?
P.S.  what is making you happy today?

It's Monday

Good morning!  What's on your mind?  It's my mission to make it a great day!  No matter the circumstance!
You are I AM!  By MercyMe

Hey...provoking thought

Mark Twain once said you're only as happy as you choose to be, so I have to make that choice despite what ails me.  Hebrews 7:25. What are your mottos?

Gratitude list

For all that ills me today, I need to make a list of all that is good.
A gratitude list, if you will.
1. An able body- it may not bring me records or accolades, but it works well.
2. Friends I can rely on...blogging friends are included.
3. Family who love me even if I wonder sometimes why.
4. A God who loves me
5. Who sent His Son to take my place

Do you have a gratitude list?  What's it look like?
Good evening!
My trip was nice, but it left me with more questions than answers!  God doesn't want me to know everything I guess!  Reading some Psalms this morning and listening to music is soothing my heart.  The things of this earth fade,  but Your Love does not.  They're are seasons where we do not know what to do or feel, so I must just trust and obey as the hymn says.
God Bless!  Please tell me I'm not alone!

Wanting an answer where there is none

The blog title seems to sum up my mood.  When I don't agree with a situation or question a motive, I get bitter and have gotten bitter, because I am upset, haven't gotten my way or just rationality.  Don't really know if that's the right word.  I had to read John 3:16, to remember who I live for.  17-20 may have been more potent for me.  17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but save the world through Him. 18 Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever who does believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of GOD'S one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict:  Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.  20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.  21 But whoever lives by the truth comes to the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
God Bless,


I didn't want to write today, because I didn't have much to say or so I thought.  My heart and head are in two different places.  So just pray that my heart and head are in the right place.  Didn't or don't want to be a downer, but life isn't all sugar, saccharine sweet and neither should the blog.  Life is hard.  You don't get out free.  I need to be honest.
God Bless,

Boston my mind

Had a post planned for today, but right now Boston is on my mind.  There are no words.  Lauren's post on her blog Life and Everything Else said it best.  God Bless!  You never know the day.  I am glad Jesus is my Savior!  It is my hope He is Yours too!

I want to say RIP to a beloved person, my fifth grade teacher Mrs. Betty Helen Kravitz.
God Bless,

Song in my head

Heard this song Easter Sunday, and saw this on Facebook, and have this song in my head."your love never fails, it never gives up, It never runs out on me". What song is stuck in your head?
Love never fails- 1 Corinthians 13:8

Yay for me!

No cavities for me at the dentist!  Very grateful!  It feels like years since I had not had to have a follow up appointment to have a cavity filled or root canal done.
What are you grateful for today?

Going to the dentist today- not so much fun, haircut maybe so.

Favorite guilty pleasure- jelly beans and the Amazing Race

Great Monday!

Spent the day volunteering, so very soar but happy!
Now just relaxing and cleaning.
Tried to eat protein and fruits today.
Only hiccup was one can of diet coke offset by bottled water.
Not perfect.
RIP Anne Smedinghoff and Annette Funicello.
God is good!

Need help!

I have gained weight.  I went shopping yesterday.  The clothes didn't fit right or at all.  Need accountability.  Need some suggestions of food and exercises!  Will you help me?
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the DIFFERENCE!  This I CAN change!

Cooper River Bridge Run

I am not running the race, but love the electricity of the city.  It's an annual tradition.  Charleston, South Carolina is alive and kicking well.  It's a beautiful day!  What are the traditions of your city?
Have a great day!

Rainy but good day!

It's rainy here!  What are your favorite snacks?  Movies? Books?  Had a good day volunteering!  Met this wonderful child who gave me gratitude and joy.  It remind me of how Jesus wanted all the children to come to Him without any roadblocks.
God Bless

Learning to love

I have been reading the Book of Exodus, and reading about the Tabernacle.  It is amazing to me just reading about its intricacy, specificity and dedication.  When it got to sacrificing the rams and other animals, I realize how much I love Jesus, how much I need Him.  As a former member of the Jewish faith, I am appreciating the Old Testament and my descendants for the very first time.  I am learning how special it is to have been a part of God's Chosen people.  I in no way mean to offend.  I am just starting to appreciate the belief of my ancestry.  Time doesn't heal all wounds, it just makes them more bearable.  As long as I can see the next day, I will continue Learning to love.
Have a blessed day!
He will complete a good work in me until the time of our Lord Jesus.

Crossing the Bridge and Finding my voice

Hey all!
I hope you all had a blessed Easter!
Just got home.  Relaxing!
It was a great weekend filled with family, food and fellowship and of course, fun.
I will talk soon about this blog's title.
But here's a tidbit.  Until we cross the bridge fully into faith we will not experience freedom!
What a concept!
Grateful for family especially my Mom, I think I am finally letting her understand me.
It's Opening Day today...in baseball, so I will enjoy the game with a nice Cola and raisins.
How was your Easter?  It finally feels spring-like, but I don't want to jinx it!
Song of the day-  "Battle" by Chris August
Bible verse of the day- I am reading through the Book of Exodus.
What are your Bible verses and songs?
Would love to hear!
Have a blessed and beautifully amazing day!
