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

Friday Foto Friends


I didn't take too many pictures this week, but I still wanted to participate in Friday Foto Friends.  Click here if you'd like to participate too. 

Most of these pictures were sent to me by our girls or I "stole" them off of FB from my girls.

Grandson Colton sitting on his Aunt Kelli!  I think he won that round!  lol

Peek-a-Boo!  He just looks so happy in these pictures.

Sparkly eyes.  I gotta try to blow this one up and frame it for my house.

Mommy and Colton
Thanks for indulging this Gigi and letting me post pictures of my favorite subjects.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Thankful Thursday

This week I am so thankful for the couple days I got with both of my girls at the same time and plus my grandson was there too.  It's been about 2 years since the 4 of us have been together and then to have the baby there too was just absolutely wonderful. 

I'm also very thankful that with all the flying and traveling they did, they were safe and never missed a flight (although a couple were delayed which caused more time sitting at airports for them).  God has been so good.


The precious time sitting in this chair with my grandson watching TV together are memories I will never forget.  I just love this little boy so much.  And then he fell asleep against my arm and you better believe this Gigi didn't move a muscle because I didn't want to disturb him.  This was the most time I've ever got to spend with him and I want more.  lol  He is just so precious and ornery and I love it all.  Unfortunately, I didn't take very many pictures, because I was too busy just enjoying him.  But at least my girls took some for me.


So what are you thankful for this week.  You can click here if you'd like to link up with Thankful Thursday.

Thankful Thursday

Things I am thankful for today:

This little guy and his mama

My nephew and his new bride.  Such a lovely couple.

The roofers came last Thursday and finished yesterday and God protected us for the last month or two that with all the rain, we had no more leaks.  Thank you Jesus.
Time with this girl and her boyfriend this weekend.  So much fun!

Birthday breakfast out with my hubby Saturday.

Black and White Memories




I'm joining in today with Terry from Your Friend from Florida to participate in Black and White.  Click here if you'd like to participate and show some of your black and white photos. Today I just have one picture that I'd like to share with you.


I love this photograph.  Actually it was two separate photos and either my brother or sister seemed them together.  My maternal grandparents (Clint and Mary) are on the left and my paternal grandparents (Elizabeth and Charlie) are on the right. 

Grandpa Clint sang bass in many gospel quartets and that is what I remember most about him.  Sometime after this picture and before I can remember he lost the ends of four fingers in a farming accident and was unable to play the guitar any more.  He gave it to my mom and sometime probably in her 30's or 40's she took lessons and learned to play and actually played and sang with him and my dad and an aunt in a quartet. 

Grandpa Charlie was a preacher and he could sing too and so could Grandma Elizabeth.  It seems there was always music at our family get-togethers. 

They really were great friends and I loved them all.  The 4 of them started the church that I grew up in.  It's because of them that I grew up in church and learned about Jesus.  I'm so grateful for the rich heritage they passed down to all their following generations.

Thanks for visiting.

Friday Foto Friends

I'm joining in with Deb for Friday Foto Friends today. Click here if you want to join in too.  I haven't taken many pictures at all this week, so I'll just post these two.  I took this of the horses in the field on the way to work this morning.  And the 2nd is a picture from our new security camera.  You can see Lucy up in the chair.  She's very nervous because the roofers are there working right now. It is so fun to be able to check in on her during the day.





Hopefully I'll do better next week.  Hope you all have a really great weekend!!

Thanks for visiting,

Thankful Thursday


There are many things I am thankful for today.  But I will list just two today.

**The roofers were in our drive when I left this morning.  Finally we are getting our new roof put on.  I am thanking the Lord that He has protected us from having a major leak.  A few weeks ago we noticed a wet spot on our ceiling and we knew the roof was old and we needed a new one.  Hubby called and got us someone to do it, but with the weather and his other jobs it's been over a month.  All during that time I've prayed and asked God to put an umbrella or a tarp over the bad spot.  And He must have done it, because there has been a lot of rain, but no more wet spot.  Thank you God!!!

**The thing I am most thankful for today is that Kelli is coming home!  She is on the first flight even now and I'll see her this afternoon.  I have not seen her in almost 2 years.  How in the world did that happen?  And I hope it never happens again.  I cannot wait to see her!!!

So what are you thankful for today?  You can tell me in your comment or you can make your own post and link up here with Rebecca Jo.
