Hello, Friends.

Hope you are having a wonderful day in the Lord.

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

It has been a chilly, rainy day today. Nice. 

 

I visited our Daughter today.  She hasn't been feeling well.  Please remember her in prayer.

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

I visited my Aunt Auntanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567also.  She seemed to be doing real well, thank the Lord.  Her Son, my Cousin looked like he was doing very well (recently in the hospital).  Please pray for my Aunt's Caregiver...she hasn't been feeling well.  Thank you for your prayers.

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

 

I came back home and cooked supper... cubed steak with rice, gravy and onions, and green beans.  I also got some clothes washed.

 

Later I visited Mom IndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567and her Roommate at the nursing home.  They both seemed to be doing well, too, thank the Lord.

 

 

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

 

Hope you are having a good day.

 

Love, Maria

Hello and happy Sunday to you!

Beautiful day here. We're currently having partly sunny and partly cloudy-looking outside and the temperature around 9 a.m. EST is about mid 40's fahrenheit.

Hubby and I are looking forward to attending this morning's church service.

MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567has been doing better but please remember her Roommate, who hasn't been feeling well, in prayer.  We plan to visit them this afternoon.

 

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

 

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, cause 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 make it right with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Believe on Him, repent of your sins and ask His forgiveness. It is that simple.  He has already paid the price for your salvation and eternal life with His blood and His life on the cross.  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 do so!  Jesus loves you very much and He is waiting for you to reach out to Him if you have not done so already.

 

Love, Maria

Good morning, Friends.

We are getting some good rain over this way.  It is a good soaking rain that began yesterday and I thank the Lord for it.  :-D

Having a cup of coffee coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567over here while looking out the window at the rain coming down, which is heavy rain off and on.  I saw a lovely, red-breasted robin a little earlier and  threw out some bread for the birds and squirrels, which is about totally gone now, hehe.  I see birds flying about in the treetops, as I am looking out the window now.  They are easy to see with the tree leaves gone for the winter...but SOON it will be SPRINGTIME, hehehe!  And the pretty green leaves will be back on the trees again.  :-D  Even though it is raining, the birds are happily singing.  I love to hear them sing!  :-D

I visited  MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567 at the nursing home yesterday and she appeared to be in good spirit, with a gorgeous smile on her beautiful face.  Her Roommate, however was not feeling well and I ask you to please pray for her. 

 

 Today my Sister Sisterstandingtippinghatanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567plans to visit and spend time with our Mother, so I don't plan to visit Mom today, so Sister can have some special private Daughter-Mother time with our Mom. 

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

 I have plenty to do here at home.  I plan, Lord willing, to go through closets, cabinets, and drawers, cleaning them out and setting aside things to sell. 

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

 

 

HubbyLargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567 is working today.

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

Good morning, Friends. 

Having a cup of coffee coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567over here while looking out the window at the rain coming down.  We're getting a good soaking rain.  That will make the flowers bloom beautifully, which have already been coming up over here.  So exciting!  :-D

Think I'll go visit MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567 at the nursing home in a little while after I tidy up the house.  I didn't visit her yesterday but I did, thank the Lord, sell all the things I took with me to sell when I left the house...(that I mentioned in my yesterday's entry)...and got a fair price for them all, too.  :-D  Think I'll soon go through the closets and find more to sell...  Also, I have dishes that have not been being used much... 

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

 

 

HubbyLargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567 and I picked up a friend yesterday evening and we three went to the Memorial Service for our friend who recently went to be with the Lord.  All the Ministers at the service did an exemplary job, as well as a close neighbor, who read a touching poem about our friend.  Our friend was a very special, caring, loving, generous, Christian person.  You don't find too many people like that these days...  A one-of-a-kind person you may as well say...one who wouldn't think twice to help a friend in need...and I must add...help for free (cause in today's society, even some friends have prices for their help)...

Good morning, Friends. 

It is a bright, sunny morning here in South Carolina, with the birds singing happily in the trees over here.  You would think it is already springtime, hehehe!  I threw out some bread and lots of squirrels came to breakfast a little while ago...usually the bluejays get to the breakfast first.  There was one bluejay that came and perched nearby the window that I was looking out of.  It looked so beautiful. 

  As usual, having a cup of coffee coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567over here. 

I've been reading in John in the Bible this morning and put one of the scriptures I read up above the picture again.  In chapter 15, Jesus is telling us to abide in Him, to obey his commandments, to love one another and to bear much fruit in Him.  He says if we abide in Him, He will abide in us and we will bring forth much fruit.  He reminds us of His wonderful love He has for each of us, in that He gave His life for us so that we may have the gift of eternal life through Him.  What a blessed Lord and Savior He is!  And I thank Him!  :-D

 

Thank you for your prayers for our Daughter whom I visited again yesterday and she was MUCH BETTER.

 

I also visited Mom IndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567and her roommate yesterday and they are doing better, as well.  Thanks again for your prayers for all.  Jesus tells us in verse 7 of John 15, 'If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you'.

 

I have another prayer request.  We got a call yesterday that another friend's husband has passed.  Both of them dear, sweet friends.  This is two friends who lost their husbands, unexpectedly, within the past 3 and a half months.  Please remember them in prayer.

 

Also, I talked with Sister Sisterstandingtippinghatanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567yesterday and she sounded stronger and said she is doing much better.  :-D

Hope you are doing well and having a blessed day in the Lord.

I've been reading in John in the Bible this morning and put one of the scriptures I read up above the picture to share with you, under the scripture I usually keep at the top of the page.  There is much to be happy about, when we know we belong to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who shed his blood and gave his life on the cross for us for the remission of our sins so that we can have forgiveness and  ETERNAL LIFE through him!  :-D

 

Please pray for our Daughter whom I visited yesterday and she wasn't feeling too well.

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!
