If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for:

**Good friends that I can share hard times with and I know they will pray for me and/or my family and they know that I will do the same for them.  Sisters in Christ are a wonderful thing.

**Another day on this side of the dirt.  I am always happy to wake up to a new day.  Having survived cancer makes me very glad to wake up each day and feel mostly good (being almost 61 isn't easy either and makes my joints ache! lol).  Thank you Jesus.

**I'm thankful for each one of you I've met in the blogging world.  I'm so glad I joined up almost 10 years ago.  In fact, I'll be celebrating my 10th blogaversary in September.  Who knew I'd stick around this long.  My friend started blogging and talked me into trying it out.  Guess who is still the one here 10 years later.  lol

**My hubby, who just brought me breakfast to work.  He is such a good and giving man.  He takes good care of me.

Well, I've finished eating, so I better get to work.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!

Wednesday Hodgepodge

Click the button above if you'd like to participate in the Hodgepodge.

1. What's something in your house you'd like to get rid of but can't?
One of  the bedroom suites we have.  I don't care which one, but we just have too many dressers and chests.  One belonged to my in-laws and hubby wants to keep it and other other belongs to my daughter and she doesn't want us to get rid of it.  I have a feeling she's going to lose as she's living in Florida and I don't see her moving it there and I don't see her moving back here anytime soon.  Sorry Kelli.

2. When is the last time you experienced a sense of nostalgia? Elaborate.
Lately, it's been any time I see pictures of my mom and dad.  I remember the good times we had and how I'd love to have another Saturday Family Night again.

3. You're only allowed three apps on your smart phone or tablet...which three do you keep?
YouVersion Bible App, Instagram and The Weather Channel.

4. July 11th is National Blueberry Muffin Day. Who knew? Do you like blueberry muffins? If you were going to have a muffin would blueberry be your choice? What's the last thing you baked?
Yes, I like blueberry muffins.  I'd prefer banana nut.  I think the last thing I baked was a chocolate cake and that would have been months and months ago.  I don't bake too often, because I would eat it all and I don't need it especially since I'm trying to eat very low carb.

5. What's the biggest way you've changed since you were a child? In what way are you still the same?
I guess the biggest way I've changed is I grew up!  lol   The way I am still the same is:  I still love Jesus, playing piano, singing and reading, just like I did when I was little.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

Hope you all have a great day.

We drove across this bridge and it was so cool inside.

Thankful Thursday

Things I am thankful for this week:

**Lunch out yesterday with both of my sisters, my brother-in-law and my husband.  It was so good to be together for the 4th.  Most of us had delicious burgers and there was no clean-up as there would have been had we grilled out.  It was too hot in our area to be out that much anyway.  So I am thankful for the nice air-conditioned restaurant and time with my family.

**A quiet evening at home with my hubby and my dog, watching some TV (the July 4th celebration from Washington DC, among other things) and working a jigsaw puzzle.  It's been awhile since I've done one.  I think it should be completed tonight.

I'm sure there is much more to be thankful for, but this is all I'm listing right now.  I just feel so blessed by God in my life.

So what are you thankful for?  If you'd like to participate, write a post on your blog, and then you can go here to link-up with Rebecca Jo. 

Thanks for visiting and commenting.  Hope you have a great day.

Currently I am...waiting for supper to finish cooking

Reading100 Days to Brave by Annie F. Downs (daily devotion) and Jan Karon's book, In This Mountain.

Listening toMy husband watching IOS Today on TWIT TV.

LovingReading a real book from the library.  It's been a long time since I've done that (other than using their online services for ebooks).

Thinking: I wish supper would hurry, I'm kinda hungry.

Feeling: blessed to be an American citizen during this Independence Holiday week.

Celebrating: That I'll be getting a day off in the middle of the week this week.

Grateful forWe found a roofer to put a new roof on our house (hopefully next week) and his estimate was a lot less than we expected.  Actually, we had no idea what it would be.  But I'm so glad for what it is.

Weatherhot-hot-hot and scattered rain showers.

EnjoyingA quiet evening at home with my husband and my dog.

A quote I want to share:
