Dancin' the Night Away

At the reception-Believe it or not no booze was involved in the making of this picture.

Will be posting a few more pictures in the days to come.  Please keep the Avery's in your prayers today--high school friends of mine who lost a son, nephew.  I was with them yesterday and will be attending graveside services today.  Thank you so much to those of you who always pray for me.  I depend on your prayers and love you so much.

So many activities the last few days--these are my precious daughters-in-law at my granddaughter's bridesmaids' luncheon last Friday--God has truly blessed my husband and me with these three fantastic, Godly women.  Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

Hope to be back soon.  I love you and hope all of you are doing well.  I miss you and making my rounds.

Hello to my Chinese Readers!

Image
I had more readers today from China than I did the United States--that is a first for me.  Hello my precious Chinese readers--I love you!  And I am so glad you are visiting my blog.  God bless you, comfort you, encourage and uphold you.Our family has a wedding this week so I will not be around much but I will be back next week with pictures and stories and I hope some Bible studies.  God gave me an incredible chapter to teach from at the Ranch this week and I want to share it with all of you.
Have a great week everyone!

Blessings and much love,

post-it notes

--fondly remembering when my husband used to come home from work and take the Nintendo away from the boys so he could play Pac-Man--remember the little yellow Pac-Man guy?  A couple of years ago, our youngest son found an old "working" Pac-Man" game and gave it to my husband for Christmas.

Gathering Bouquets of Thanks

Elizabeth's place always inspires me--the writings, the photographs, the heart for Jesus and love for her family, her creativity, especially in decorating her home, her recipes and cooking.........the list goes on....... So for some time now I have been so touched and inspired by her "thanksgivings." I have been wanting to try her method of praise (Ann Voskamp's) and decided finally today to do so. I really enjoyed it because it made me think of things that I would not have thought of otherwise.


3 gifts new
a new version of the Bible on my phone--
