Special Sunday

Hello everyone,
Yes it is kind of late this Sunday but here I am back again. I want to make 2017 a new year with the New Year. Does that make sense.
I am using a word for this year - FOCUS.  I actually did look up the definition.  Center of interest or activity, hub, nucleus and see clearly. Center point of attraction, attention or activity. The main or central point of something. The concentration of attention or energy on something. The focal point, person or thing you pay the most attention to.
Well now that sure is a lot to think about for 2017 isn't it. What will your word for 2017 be?

I pray this year holds many new and exciting adventures for you and your families. May all you be Blessed.
See you again soon.
create,inspire and encourage.

Another Satisfied Saturday

Satisfied Saturday,
So much has been happening in my world and our world these last months. No matter what has been going on we are here on a Saturday.  So what are we satisfied with today?  I am satisfied that I live in America and know Jesus Christ as my savior.  I am satisfied with my family and friends no matter who they voted for in our recent election.  My God, Family and Country mean so much to me. So today I am thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and what new and old traditions will I have this year?  It is time for thanksgiving for sure, each and every day.  I pray we all come together with family and friends and truly celebrate our love for each other. And in my case my love of God and my country.
I pray you all have a wonderful time of love, thanksgiving and blessings. Amen

Satisfied Saturday

Good morning all my special family and friends. I have been writing on Fa ebook the last few days with a word for the day. As I was going to choose a word for today I remembered my dusty old blog. Well low and behold, ages ago I said "I am Satisfied on Saturday" So that is surely something to ponder for today. What about that? When I worked Monday to Friday by Saturday I was satisfied I had worked hard all week. It was time to get all the errands run, chores done and have some fun. Retirement changedo my routine. Whatever your routine take a moment to just be Satisfied with all your blessings. Ahhhhh, whew, yippee. Then off to be the best You. Hugs and

Return to the basics

Hello friends,
It has been a very long year focused around family and health. As you know my husband has had quite a time this past year. He is still holding his own. Praise God. I thank you all for your prayers , hugs and love.

So it is time for me to get back to basics. To love this Christmas season and the birth of Jesus Christ.
He led by example and that is certainly something to think about in this crazy world we live in today.

May this season of giving, sharing and caring bring you all Joy, Peace and Love. Remember to  crease, inspire and encourage.

Love you all,
