Today I am GRATEFUL for:


In the blink of an eye”

Scripture:  I love that no matter what I am feeling, or what my need, or problem is at any given moment, the solution is always found in God’s Word.  In this day of electronic “magic” I can find the exact verse I need in the blink of an eye. Years ago it took a lot more work with a very large concordance. I am basically lazy, so the instant answer suits me well. I have an electronic Bible on my iPad, which is great. Also, sometimes I can remember a phrase, or a word or two of a scripture and I can search the Internet using just those few words in quotes and it gets me right to what I am looking for.

“in the blink of an eye” scripture

you will see how easy it is.

a strong word of caution…this also generates links to many interpretations of a scripture. Read with discernment.  Ask God to show you what He wants you to learn.  I would recommend Proverbs 3:5-6.

Woody the Woodpecker

Woody the Woodpecker

My Backyard: This year the birds have been very busy in my yard. There are multiple nests, cardinals, jays, woodpeckers, and our state bird, the mocking bird. I even saw a hummingbird last week. I have had a small feeder on the patio and they really seem to like it. Needs to be filled daily. Bought a new, bigger one a couple of days ago and hung it on the front porch. Don’t think they like it there, so I just moved it back to the patio. It’s a very peaceful place, my backyard. Thank you God.

New life: We have a new addition to our family on the way.  I will leave it at that for now, but ask for your prayers on the mother and the beautiful new baby growing inside her. I am very excited. Love you “B”.

Footnote: I wish I knew what to write that might generate a response from someone reading this.  It would be so wonderful if my little blog led me to new friends. 


Father thank you for knowing me so well, from the beginning, that you put the words I would need, for every situation, into the hearts of the writers of your love for me.  Forgive me for not spending more time in them and help me to make reading your words top priority in my day.

Thank you for the beautiful birds and frogs and lizards and all the other “critters” that visit my yard. I love how you care for them.

Father, God, I especially want to thank you for blessing our family with this new life. There hasn’t been a baby in our family for a very long time. I am rejoicing! Protect both through this pregnancy and bring us a beautiful, healthy baby in November. 

Start a conversation. I would love to hear from you.
