Thankful Thursday!

This is my 1st time to post for Thankful Thursday. I learned about it from my friend Tricia. I think this is going to be great.
I have so much to be thankful for that it is hard to list which one goes first.
I am Thankful for :
a)The relationship I have with my King.
b)The time I got to spend with my Mom this afternoon.
c)My cousin waving me down as I was leaving my Moms and us just standing outside in the sunshine talking about old times and how much fun we had playing ball in his grandmothers front yard.
d)I don't have to cook supper.
I guess that is enough for now. But, the list could go on and on and on.

Spring Break 08

Last week was Spring Break for us and it flew by. We went camping at Wind Creek State Park in Alexander City, AL. There were close to 60 people from our church that went this year. The weather was beautiful and very windy. I really enjoyed visiting with friends, playing games and sitting around the camp fire. Joey was "Grill Man" and he loved every minute of it did everyone who ate from the grill. As you know this is Andrea's senior year and the last of Spring Breaks has a high school student. Yes, she went camping with us and had a great time. She was not the only teen there. She had several friends there her age and Hillary came down and stayed with us for a couple of days. Hillary usually goes with us on our camping adventures. They played volleyball and walked to the different campers till they realized that Hill had brought her car and they could ride.
On Sunday, we gathered at a central location and enjoyed songs and spending time in God's word and testimony. Sam delivered the message and several different people talked about how God has blessed them and shared things. This was a special time. It was so nice to sit around in sort of a circle, outside in God's beautiful land, under the blue skies with birds flying by, hearing the rustle of the leaves as the wind was blowing and worshipping HIM. Not worrying about anything .....just being.
Everyone brough their camping chairs to sit in and some even had p.j.'s still on. It was all good. Anything goes when you are camping. It was very nice. I may post later on this.
All in all Spring Break was very nice. I enjoyed spending time with family and friends and had a very relaxing time. I even got to use the washer and dryer in my camper so I wouldn't have so many clothes to wash when we got home. Now that was real nice!!
On Monday it was back to work and the routines of everyday life. The only thing is the months are flying by. Graduation will be here way to soon for us and not soon enough for Andrea. more on this at a later time.
I am thankful for so many things and one of those is having a wonderful Spring Break with my family and friends. Spending time with Joey and Andrea is always the top of my list.
I want to hear from you so.....
How did you spend Spring Break or what is your favorite Spring Break memory?

Blog Party!!

This is my first blog party!! I must say, this is all new to me. I have several emotions of excitment and being darn right scared. LOL
I decied to have a blog because it looked like fun and I like reading them. Then it became a place to start learning to put my thoughts out like journaling. I didn't realize how out of practice I am on spelling and grammar! I would like to blame it on typo's ...I am sure sometimes that happens but, not all the time. My family has been going through a rough time and by blogging this has helped me get out some of my feelings and not keep them bottled up. Also, has helped my family through others praying for us. My blog is about my life and my family. I also want to use the blog as a tool to reach out to others to help us get closer to God. I have started reading other blogs who use their devotion and thoughts to minister to people. They have ministered to me and I would like to do the same. However, this is new to me. I have mostly posted on my thoughts and problems and not on insights or devotions. I am praying for God to direct me on how to better use this and hopefully inspire someone to draw closer to HIM.
Happy Blog Party!!!

Poem by: Maya Angelou

This is Beautiful, enjoy.
"A Woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her."
When I say..."I am a Christian" I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin'."
I'm whispering "I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven."
When I say..."I am a Christian" I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
When I say..."I am a Christian" I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say..."I am a Christian" I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say..."I am a Christian" I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth itl.
When I say..."I am a Christian" I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say..."I am a Christian" I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who recieved God's good grace somehow!

This was sent to me by e-mail and I wanted to share it.
