Hello and happy Sunday to you!

 

Hubby is home today and we are both very excited over the beautiful white wonderland of SNOW we awoke to early this morning.  Although very cold (20's) here, the birds were still singing happily in the trees, as Hubby called my attention to the singing as we stood at the kitchen window together.   I threw out some bread for them and you should have seen all the birds that came and had breakfast!  Red cardinal, bluejays and snowbirds.  Also a squirrel.  It is sunny here this morning.

We were trying to decide whether to get out in the snow and go to church but we got a call saying church is canceled today.  We have weather advisories here in South Carolina about ice on roads, so I guess this is for the best.  Hubby and I sat at the dining room table and I read to us 2 chapters in John from the Bible about Jesus healing a blind man and also about He said in verse 9 of John 10:  'I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and shall find pasture.'.   

I don't know if we will later on today go see MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567or not.  I have a few things to take to her.

I am having a cup of coffeecoffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567...have some?

Hope you are having a good day. Every day with the Lord IS a good day. Is He your Lord and Saviour? I hope so, because He sure is mine! If He's not your Lord and Saviour, today is the day of salvation and there is NO TIME like today to get right with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Believe on Him, repent of your sins and ask His forgiveness. It is that simple. There is NO other way to be saved but through Jesus. He is the way, the truth, and the life and no one goes to the Father but through Him. I believe we are living in the last days and many will wish one day that they had chosen to believe in Him and live for Him while they were here on earth to make that decision and to do so!

 

Love, Maria

Good morning Maria - what part of SC are you in. That seems to be unusual weather for your area. I am sure it looks pretty. Have a great day.


OhioRaven on 02/17/2013:
Thanks for sharing the scriptures of John with us. have a blessed day, Maria.

Glad you're enjoying the snow scenes!

RYC: Actually it's 5 workouts completed out of 115 possible. In a year's time. Not that great--and it was last year. It's really a notation to myself. But thanks for your comment anyway!

Hello, Friends.

Hope you are having a wonderful day in the Lord.

.................................

It has been a chilly, misting-rain-sort of day today.  Nice.

...................................

 

This morning, I picked up a friend and she and I went to the next town over and visited another friend of ours, who was in the hospital.  Please remember her in your prayers.  She was to be released later today, I think. 

.................................

After I took my friend home, I took my  Aunt Auntanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567a red rose in a vase with a red ribbon for Valentine's Day, which as you know, is tomorrow, and visited her and my cousin, her Son.  He has recently been released from the hospital also.  Please remember him in prayer.  He seemed to be doing well and also my Aunt, too, thank the Lord.

 

......................................

 

My Sister Sisterstandingtippinghatanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567hasn't been feeling well, so please continue to remember her in prayer.  Also my Mother IndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567and her dear, sweet Roommate and others at their nursing home need prayer as well.  Thank you for all your prayers.

 

Most of all, let us not forget to pray for the unsaved, that they will get saved and live for the Lord Jesus.

.....................................

 

Hope you are having a good day.

 

Love, Maria

It is a rainy morning here in South Carolina.  I thank the Lord for the rain.  I've been sitting by the the window in the dining room at the table (done had breakfast), looking outside at the rain cascading off the rooftop coming down.  I threw out some bread earlier and quickly a bluejay flew down from a tree to get breakfast.  :-D

HubbyLargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567 is doing well.  He worked both days over the weekend.

.........................................

 

 

I may visit MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567 today and see how she and her roommate are doing.  They have both been sick but have been getting better.  Thank you for your prayers for them. 

 

Please remember in prayer cousins and a friend today.   (The Lord knows.)   Also please help me pray for the lost, that they will repent and get right with the Lord while there is still time to do so. 

 

.......................................

 

Hope you have a blessed day in the Lord.  Every day with the Lord is a GOOD day.

Hello and happy Sunday to you!

Not feeling too good over here this morning. 

I am at home keying this to you.

Hubby is working today.

MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567appeared to be doing better when I saw her day before yesterday.  Thank you for your prayers.

 

I read some in the Bible this morning, which I usually do.  As you read in the Bible, you learn so many things you never knew or may have forgotten.  It is like it comes to life as you read it.  I was reading in Luke chapter 22:3 where it said that satan entered into Judas Iscariot (who betrayed Jesus).  I've read the new testament repeatedly but somehow I must have forgotten it said that (although I knew what Judas Iscariot did).   Also I read about an angel who came to Jesus, (Luke 22:43) strengthening Him as he prayed. 

......................................

 

Hope you are having a good day. Every day with the Lord IS a good day. Is He your Lord and Saviour? I hope so, because He sure is mine! If He's not your Lord and Saviour, today is the day of salvation and there is NO TIME like today to get right with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Believe on Him, repent of your sins and ask His forgiveness. It is that simple. There is NO other way to be saved but through Jesus.

HubbyLargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567 is working.  He just called on his morning break to say hello.  (LOVE THAT GUY!)

.........................................

Thank you for your prayers concerning Sister.Sisterstandingtippinghatanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567She is doing pretty well and she and I had a 'Sister Day' yesterday.  I went and got her and after we had fun visiting her Daughter and Grands (2 beautiful little girls) and taking pictures of us all, Sister and I came over here to the house for a while.  I fixed her some chocolate iced chocolate cake I had baked the day before and she really enjoyed it and I sent some home with her, too. 

 

She and I also visited MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567 and her roommate at the nursing home and I think they are getting better, thank the Lord.

Before taking Sister back home (she lives in the next town over), she and I went to a thrift store and she found a good deal on some clothes (a pair of jeans and 2 tops) and I found a gorgeous Christmas 4 piece (2 pillow shams, a comforter and bedskirt) bed ensemble (material is red poinsettas and brown pinecones against a green background), like-new (washing in the washing machine currently).

Remember...Jesus loves you. Do you love Him? Hope you have a blessed day.

hollybelle on 02/07/2013:
Hey Maria! I don't know why I didn't see your posts before. I would have commented sooner. Catching up with your last few posts - congratulations on maintaining your weight. You have done so well. Glad Mom and her roommate are getting better and pray sisters burden will be lifted soon. Must have been frightening when neighbors house burned. Hope it's turned out OK for them to get rebuilding, etc. Your posts are always so uplifting. God bless and have a good night.

So happy to hear that all is well with your family :) It is raining here now! Hope you had an awesome day :)

   It is a chilly, sunny morning here in South Carolina, around 39 degrees fahrenheit at 8:15 a.m.  Supposed to get up to high 60's today according to the tv, but only the Lord knows.

Our neighbor whose home I told you about in the last entry is okay.  She got out in time, thank the Lord.  Thank you for your prayers for her.

Please remember my SisterSisterstandingtippinghatanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567in prayer this morning.  I won't go into details in order to protect her privacy but I know she would want me to ask for prayer for her.

 

Also, please remember MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567 and her roommate and others at the nursing home, who have been sick and need prayer as well.

Good morning, Friends.

..............................................

 

It is overcast this morning, chilly and having had my breakfast (scrambled egg with cheese and grits) and having read some in the Bible (in Luke), I am now having my morning coffee...coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

The scale weighed me at 140.0 this morning.

 Hubby LargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567is at work and I really miss him.  He awoke me early this morning, around 3 a.m. or so, having woken up himself earlier, to tell me that a neighbor's home was on fire.  Our bedroom was lit up with flashing lights coming through the blinds from firetrucks and police vehicles at the nearby home.  Looking out the window, tall flames of fire emanated from the home's rooftop.  As far as I know there was only one person living there and I haven't heard anything but ask you to help me pray that they are all right.  Sitting here at the dining room table and looking outside the window, it appears the home is a total loss, though the basic structure is still standing.  

I remember a few years ago we had a grease fire in our home that got out of control and I had to abandon our home to go outside to breathe and our courageous neighbor (not the same one) next door  who happened to be outside, swiftly and bravely ran inside our home where billowing black smoke was pouring out the front door and put the fire out right before the fire department arrived.  Our home was saved, thank the Lord, but more importantly, WE were okay. 

......................................

We may be getting some warmer weather coming in by tomorrow...but whether we do or don't,  I thank the Lord for each day.

 

...........................................

Hope you are having a good day.  Every day with the LORD is a GOOD day!

 

Love, Maria

How scary for your neighbor, I hope they are OK and I hope all is not lost. You are very lucky with your grease fire. I remember years ago when we lived in an apartment our dryer caught on fire in the basement. It was an old dryer and I had put too many clothes in it and overloaded the electrical. I panicked and thankfully my quick thinking roommate ran down and disconnected the water line from the washer and used it to put out the fire!


OhioRaven on 01/28/2013:
Glad to hear everyone's okay. Luke is my favorite book. Luke 12:24 ha-ha !


V on 01/28/2013:
Oh no :( sorry about your neighbor's home.. I pray that all is well for him/her.. That is a scary story about your experience with the grease fire.. Have a good evening Maria :)
