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

Wednesday Medley

Terri is giving us something to replace the Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Thank you Terri.

1. What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?
I would love to take a train ride across the country.  I think that would be so fun to see the country but not have to be the driver.  I'd also want to stop whenever I wanted (of course, I know that wouldn't be possible on a train, but in my imagination it would be.).

2. Name five songs that you have completely memorized?
Well right now, because of my grandson, I know all the words and motions to Baby Shark.  lol  Then there's, Amazing Grace, Jesus Loves Me.  Because of my girls when they were little, the Barney theme song.  And number 5 would be a song called I Claim the Blood.

3. What takes up too much of your time?
Social Media

4. What TV show or movie do you refuse to watch?
Anything to do with demons

5. What’s worth spending more on to get the best?
House repairs - like our new roof.

6. Tell us something random you want us to know about your week..
Our ladies Bible Study group started a new study last night  from Lisa Harper, called "Job, An Unlikely Story of Joy."  It was so good seeing everyone and I can't wait to find out how you get joy from the book of Job.  lol

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day.

Friday Foto Friends

It's Friday which means it's time to link-up with Deb to show your pictures for the week.  You can click here for the link up.

Again, I haven't taken very many pictures this week, but here are a couple of the pretty skies in my neighborhood when I took the dog out early this morning.  I just love it when God paints the skies with pink.

The picture below is of a flag a neighbor has out.  I think it's so cute and it reminds me that fall is just around the corner.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great weekend.

Thankful Thursday

I am very thankful for my youngest daughter.  Today is her birthday and she is now 24 years old. Tell me, when and how did that happen?  I’m sad she lives so far away, but she calls me most every day or  she video chats with her and my grandson or sends me pictures. Because of all this, I probably see and talk to her more than when she was just 20 minutes away. She is such a fun-loving and truly caring person. And she’s a wonderful mommy. Kerri I love you and hope you have a great birthday.

I am also thankful for Sunday afternoon naps. It may seem silly to think that on Thursday when Sunday was several days ago. But I just totally love coming home and taking a nap after church and lunch. Obviously from the picture below our dog loves them too. I sometimes take naps other times but they are never as wonderful as a Sunday nap. Maybe because it’s the day of rest. I don’t know, but I am thankful for it.

There are so many other things to be thankful for, but I think I’ll leave it at that.

What are you thankful for today?  Does anyone else take naps?  If you want to link up a thankful post with Rebecca, you can click here.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting.

Three in One

Let's just say it's been an interesting week around here and leave it at that.  But I've really missed the blogging world.  So I'm going to attempt to do 3 posts in one.  Wednesday Hodgepodge, Thankful Thursday, and Friday Foto Friends.  You can click on the buttons to go to the link up of each one.

I'll start with Wednesday Hodgepodge.  This is the last one.  Joyce says she has been doing it for 9 years and feels like the time has come to end it.  She will still be on her blog and says she may even occasionally do Hodgepodge type posts and even maybe link-ups, but no more regular Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Joyce, I just want to say how much I've appreciated all the questions you have asked us and answered yourself.  It's been a lot of fun and I've gained some new friends through your efforts.  So here are this weeks questions and my answers.

1. What has been the highlight of your summer so far? (It's still summer people!)
My highlight so far was when both my girls and my grandson came home at the same time.  It was so good to be together again.  It had been almost 2 years since all of us have been in the same place at the same time.  It was short, but it was great.

Here's the 3 of them as they are flying back home

2. What do you wish you'd done more of this summer? Less of?
I'm really pretty happy with the way my summer has been, but I guess I wish I had walked more this summer (I've gotten a little slack in the last month) and eaten a little less.

3. Something you're looking forward to on your September calendar?
Our Ladies Bible Study is starting back up and we are doing Lisa Harper's study of Job.

4. Best/favorite book you've read this summer?
I've read quite a few this summer and like most of them, but it would probably be the Father Tim Series I'm reading from Jan Karon.

5. Share something positive, encouraging, or uplifting here.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

I sure do love this boy and he seems to love his french fries.  lol
Now for Thankful Thursday.  I hated to miss this yesterday because I always want to be intentional about giving thanks.

This week I am thankful for:

***God has been with me and helped me through some tough things at work.  It's going to keep on, but hopefully I'll get a little better at it as we go.  And I'm so thankful for all the reminders God has been sending me the last few days.  I've seen verses all over the place reminding me that I don't need to fear, that He has not given me a spirit of fear, but of a sound mind and how He will go with me and through Him I can do all things.  Thank you God for your faithfulness.

***Again, I'm thankful for Rebecca and how she encourages me with her weekly thankful posts.

And now, Friday Foto Friends

Here are a couple photos from my week.  These first 3 photos are from Monday.  We went to Central Ohio and the skies were just beautiful that day.  Hubby and I went to an Amish Restaurant for lunch and just enjoyed the drive on such a great day.

Saturday we went to the Airport and watched the planes again.  I am always amazed that something so big can actually lift off the ground and fly away like they do.  I just love watching them.

That's about all I have.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
