Older and better!

Love this scripture, it tells me that if I live a godly life, even in old age I will flourish and still produce fruit! Now living a godly life is not a perfect life, we all fall and make mistakes, even very serious ones; but if we have a heart like King David, who was a man who made many mistakes but he ALWAYS had a repentant attitude, always willing to submit to God, THEN we can be the”material” God can work with to eventually perfect. We will still be able to produce fruit in our old age! Does that mean still have babies? God forbid! At this age I would probably be more harm to a baby than excellent grandma, but a momma not so much. No, producing “fruit “ all around us, wherever and whenever our presence and influence is operative, we can make things happen for the good in our families, work places, social circles and even in this crazy world.  We may be getting older, takes us longer to get up and going , may hold up a few checkout lines at the store counting your

Comfort the way I have been comforted...

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Happy Friday everyone! Though I do realize that it may not be a Happy Friday for everyone. While some are rejoicing that its the end of a work week and have great plans for the weekend, there are others that are having a not so good may be their health, a family or financial issue or in the case of some precious people that I know, they are in mourning while preparing to celebrate the life of a passing loved one.  If you find yourself in one of those situations, I just want you to know that in the midst of all the chaos, heart break and even grief, God sees you. I remember the days following my husband's passing, how I felt so alone in my grief. There were others all around

Get Wisdom...

Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Proverbs 4:7  Yesterday was the perfect day to sit out on the back porch with a cup of Apple Cinnamon Spice tea that I picked up at Big Lots and it is DELICIOUS by the way (commercial) lol The cool pre-Autumn breeze and the softly falling rain made it just the right atmosphere to sit from the busy and take a gander at life. (Does anyone still say "take a gander"? , interpretation: "Take a look") 🤓  For just a few minutes as I sipped my tea, in a Fall themed cup (Summer lovers don't hate, I'm trying to hold back as best I can but pumpkins and colorful leaves keep leaking out 🍁🍁🍁🍁 SEE whadda I tell ya !) 🤣 Anyway... I thought about what's really important and I came up with "Getting wisdom". King Solomon of the Bible knew this secret, when asked in a dream what did he want, he requested wisdom and understanding in discerning justice, beca

Being Still...

"...And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” Exodus 14:13-14  Most of you reading this know the story or have at least seen the scene in the movie "The Ten Commandments when Moses and the Hebrew children have fled the slavery of Egypt and are now at the Red Sea, trapped and impossible to go forward with Pharaoh and his army in pursuit. It is here smack in the middle of impossibilities and no hope that God gives Moses the faith and assurance to speak to the people to not be afraid, to not panic, but stand still and see the awesomeness of God!  He HAD to tell them to "stand still" because , I am sure that being in a position with your front facing the expansion of the Sea and your back to an oncoming ferocious army, the natural human in
