SORRY!

I apologize for not posting in so long. Life has a way of getting in the way of things. Of course, I do find time to do whatever I really want to do, such as play computer games, watch tv, write whenever I want, etc. So once again I apologize. I have no excuse.

I am excited to let all you readers know I am co authoring a book. It is about a family pet and it is a story of how he saved my son's life, then lo and behold, the family had to save his life. It is going to be edge of your seat entertainment. (I hope anyway). 

Lot's of changes have occurred since I last wrote. We downsized from 9 people in our household to 5. that is quite a change. Our power bill went from over $350 to $103. Thank God for that. Our food bill is down of course. Our laundry is way down and our house is changed quite a bit. The grand kids are pretty quiet. I do get up with them in the mornings and cook breakfast for them than my husband drives them down the road to the bus stop. He prays with them each morning before they go to school. When he returns home, we watch a bible DVD and listen to four chapters of the Bible then we pray. Afterwards I walk on the treadmill, then he walks. Then we go about our business. I to write or clean, he to clean and clean, and clean. Well, you get the point.

I am going now. I just wanted to touch bases with you all. I am so thankful for my Jesus and I am so thankful for my family. I hope to reach out to you again soon.

Just Thinking

well, well, well. The new year has officially begun. I pray for a great year and I do so wish my family will be able to get their lives in control and let God do His will in their lives. So many of my children have had rough times and as a mom, it truly hurts me to see them going through such pain. They are all Christians but not all walking with the Lord. Some of them want their own way and some of them are too impatient to wait upon God and His will.

We reap what we sow so I pray for them to want a close fellowship with God. He needs to become real in their lives and they need to live for Him. So do I. All the above is what I need also.

It is one thing to give advice, quite another to take it sometimes.  
It is quiet here tonight. One grandson is at the nearby school playing basket ball with his cousin, another grandchild is waiting to go to the movies. My hubby is watching TV and I am writing this blog. It is nice to relax for a while. Ought O. Hubby is sleeping. LOL. He does that a lot now days. I wonder if God meant for humans to retire or to go on working until we die. I think go on working. If one owned/worked his own farm/ranch, there would be no retiring. So makes sense to work until you die. Rest on Sunday and at evening. Whew! I am so thankful for retirement. Yes! Raising grandkids is a work in itself. Love them to death but in two years, they will all be raised. Maybe not gone out of the nest, but raised. 50 + years of marriage, five kids, and haven't had an empty nest for 46 years. I wouldn't change a thing. Love all of them, glad we were here for our kids when they needed us. Looking forward to the quieter times ahead though. 
I am going to close on that note. I will write more later.
