God's Word

You have made known to me the path of life; and you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalm 16:11

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.  We are blessed, very blessed in our country.  I am so thankful for family & friends. I'm also thankful for simple things like hot water ( and clean drinking water) and good food to eat.  Even though I have some health problems (welcome to getting old!) I am still thankful for all the things I can still do and glad to be able to get out of bed everyday.
God is so good to us.  I want to give Him thanks, praise & worship.

Where am I?
lost and alone,
looking for God,
who has not moved.
It is I
the wonderer. . . . .
moving here and there,
always looking,
always seeking.
I know where God is
but I seek other ways
other paths,
and become the lost sheep,
caught in the brambles.
He comes with love
and rescues me.

Election Day, well, it is a primary, no I am not voting today.  I don't like missing an opportunity to vote, but since we just moved, we know none of the candidates.  Maybe next time I will be better informed.
Kristy & Andy left this morning for Murray, so I've been cleaning and rearranging. Hot day outside so mostly I have been in the house. 
For my "start-over project," I made a list of several unfinished projects and I am trying to get those done. Also, I am reading and praying everyday since that is my goal this month.  I really need to hang out and listen to God more. He is so good to me.

This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.  Oh yeah!  Beautiful day outside, sunny, very warm and every now and then a breeze comes by.  For the first time in months-  I have the whole quite house to myself.  I'm so excited!  I can sit quietly and pray or read the Word or just enjoy the quiet.  I love it.
I have decided to start a "start over" project. If you play golf, it is called a 'mulligan,' I really want to focus-  not just do the urgent.  
Number 1.  Read Bible & pray every day.
That is my focus this month.  I have more than 21 days left in this month, so that is supposed to be the length of time it takes to make a habit.  I want it to be more than a habit though.  I want to commune with God during these times.  I know we can talk with Him any time- while working, washing dishes, cooking, etc. but I need time to sit & commune. Begin Now!

God bless you.

Happy New Year

I want to spend time with God today to seek His will, to choose a verse for this year and a word for the year.  I like to have a word to think about, dwell on and seek revelation.  A Bible verse is an excellent way to think about God and His influence in our lives. I look for things in my life that relate to the verse.

For our celebration, we started off with Mexican lunch. Yum, lots of fun!  We stayed up till 11:00 and then gave up...  Steve watched football, then we watched Fox news for the ball drop in New York.  Wheee, we are off to a great beginning!

One week, yep, one more week till  Christmas and I don't think I'm ready. I didn't send out any cards at all this year.  Postage just goes higher & higher and it just seems like Christmas gets here before I am ready for it.
Steve has done some of the shopping and I've done a little. So I guess we'll be ready by the time it actually gets here.
Kristy and her family are coming home for Christmas. They'll go to the LaMore's Christmas first and then come here.  Christmas day we'll all go to Dan & Rachel's house.  I love getting together with family. That is the best part to me. Looking forward to seeing everyone and spending some time together.
