In a birthday mood!


  • It's my nephew Andrew's first birthday this weekend.  It's amazing how much love one can have for a child.  He is my sunshine on a rainy day.  He is my munchkin.  Mi cielito te quiero.  Que Dios te bendiga siempre.  I love singing Alouette to you.  
  • It's post number 450!  Thank you all for reading!
Thank you God for pushing me onward when I wanted to quit.  Your mercies are new every morning.

God Bless,
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

Hopeful for snow

It may snow here today?  What are your favorite activities for the snow?  Reading magazines, books and maybe a newspaper.  Do you have any favorites or suggestions?
God Bless,

What is the greatest piece of encouragement you could share?

Friday, January 24, 2014


Sport to play
Sport to watch
Country to visit


For pushing me and inspiring me.
For conquering fear
That is one day at a time
Speechless and so blessed

Prayer for today

My prayer is simply to Surrender, the hardest thing to do besides acceptance.  The truth hurts.  God, please let me accept Your Mercies!
In Christian love,

Writing as a lost art

I miss the days of the idea of pen pals.  I love receiving handwritten cards and notes.  When I get "snail mail", I get a warm, fuzzy feeling.  What makes you get a warm, fuzzy feeling?  Right now, I have to be still and know that I am God.

How are you?

How are you dear friends?  What's on your mind?  What's making you smile?
Going to take a nice walk with my poodle.

Take heart

It's amazing how God comes through in the clutch.  A prompting to read my daily Scripture.  Providing the app to be at my fingertips.  Reading Joanna Goddard's latest blog post from her awesome blog Cup of Jo.  He's in the details of everything.  When I fall, He picks me up.  Does He give me more than I can, as I saw a recent piece posted to Facebook, I think.  It's where I saw it.  Maybe He does, but if He does or does not I believe is because He trusts I can handle it.
I must trust His Word.  My hope is that your struggle doesn't become your defining moment, but rather a passing moment.

My heart

Left a piece of my heart this morning.  My nephew, Andrew, is so sweet.  Had so much fun with him these past few days.
Rest is on the agenda for today.
God Bless,

Having faith

Is it just me, or is faith tested and or strengthened when we realize we are in control of nothing.  Plans can be made or undone in a second.
That is the question of day
God Bless!
Humbly in Christ,

Lazy Sunday

Enjoying riding the stationary bike and watch my dog sunbathe by the window.  There is joy in quiet calm.

Dreamy destinations

It's cold and damp here today.  I read a CNN article about elegant mansions that have become hotels and they look beautiful.  What or where does your dreamy destination look like?

Some Q's and prayers or praises

How are you staying warm in all this cold?  Just reading blogs by the fireplace.  Any prayer or praise reports?  Would you continue to pray for God's understanding as we continue to grieve the loss of our beloved Pop Pop.

God Bless and thanks!

Pop Pop

I didn't want to write this!  In doing so, it feels like I'm closing a chapter of my life.  It's painful to know that you have been gone since New Year's Eve.  The thing is I keep remembering your mannerisms- how you ate a banana with your pills, scraping the bowl for every Cheerio or is that me?  How you'd tell me to think and not give while doing The Sun-Sentinel crossword puzzle.  You'd always give me the Sports page after you read it yourself.   I will miss our sports discussions.  You loved your Dolphins.  Super Bowl Sunday or the NFL Draft won't be the same.  I have so many memories of us together that make me smile, and yet shed a tear.  As I remember and reminisce, I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge how much of you resides in me.  When I go into the world they're are to two things I'd like:  For Christ to be seen in me, and for someone to say, "Leo, sure would be smiling with pride."  My Pop Pop, you made the dash count.

A legacy of love,

Gigi loves you

Life lessons

It moves at its own speed
It does not consult you.  It just happens.
The sweetest moments sometimes coincide with the saddest once-hence the word bittersweet.
I want to say so much, yet don't know how

God didn't give me a spirit of timidity, of fear.
God Bless,

It's 4am

I can't sleep...coughing with cough drops...enjoying reading while the tv is playing in the background.  Any favorite teas or soups?
God Bless,
