Welcome to the last Wordfilled Wednesday of the year. As I think about this photo and the verse I realize it is fitting to end the year and to start next year.
This is my sweet little house which I love. Which God Blessed us with. Christmas day we had an unexpected snow and I was able to take a photo. You can see I wasn't prepared wagon in the yard, chairs from Goodwill waiting to get stored and the footprints in the snow. If I had been thinking about It I would have gone out the back door. I would have moved the wagon the day before and the chairs. But isn't that they way we usually are? We act or speak without thinking.
I am glad to use this photo because it reminds me that I want to:
. . . Dedicate this blog to God's glory
. . . Make my home a sanctuary
. . . Stop before I act or speak
I hope your New Years is Blessed please come back and visit and leave a comment.

So today I leave you with two verses that will hopefully give you encouragement today.
These are the verses I was writing about. But they really don't need anything added from me.
First. . . Psalms 51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
And. . . Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understand; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.
May your day be Blessed by God.

Today I want to share with you my inspiration. I love Rachel Anne at Home Sanctuary. Here are her thoughts about preparing our homes for the new year.
"In between the Christmas hustle and bustle, I've been thinking a lot about Home Sanctuary and the Small Things. The days before a new year begins always bring a sense of anticipation to me. I like to set a few goals and get re-organized and agonize over which new planner to go with. Surely there MUST be one that will cure my forgetfulness and distractedness and whip me into shape? It's probably too much to ask, but I can dream.
But there is one thing I always come back to each year. The thing that never falls off my radar. The thing that brings me back here every day.
I want my home to be a sanctuary - a refuge - for my family.
My reality is that I'm a tired mom, living on a shoestring. I'm haphazard in my organization and quite a few of my ideas are half baked, at best.
But I've got this unshakable belief that a home can be wonderful, even if you don't have it all together. I believe that God takes the little bit that you have, and He can make much of it."
We believe that Sanctuary is possible. This was only part of Rachel Anne’s post this morning. I invite you to go over and visit her and join us this New Year and make your Home a Sanctuary.
Please visit me here daily and you can also stop over at My Home Sanctuary for my daily log where I follow Rachel's simple thing challenges.

Right now she needs our hugs and encouragement. Her wonderful husband has been in the hospital. And Denise's own health struggles especially with the stress of her "lovebugs" illness.
Please go over and send a hug her way.

Today I am sharing a song I heard for the first time today.
Yesterday I began a new journal. The lyrics of this song really spoke to me. I am still on that journey to growing closer to our Savior. The reminder that He is here even when I don't feel him. And the reminder that I just need to be still and rest in Him.
Doesn't that just make your day? I hope you enjoy this song today. And go over and visit Amy for more Then Sings My Soul posts.
Have a Blessed Sunday,

I think I wrote a Thankful post last Tuesday or was it the one before. Anyway. I wanted to do a shout out and Praise God for some answers.
And some Praises and it makes me want to . . .
This is a video we shared on Sunday.
Our son in love lost his job the middle of October. He starts training for a new job today! Praise God. Everyone kept telling him not to expect to find anything till the first of the year.
They have been in thier house (a rental) since April so don't have much relationship with the landlord but he told them just before the first to lower the rent by $200.00 this month!
God is so faithful to take care of us and give provision.
My other huge Praise is for our ministry. God continues to Bless.
We began Chapel services in September at a drug and alcohol treatment facility for boys. It is part of our states Juvenile Prison sytem.
Let me tell you friends when you pray that God will use you may be really surprised where he puts you. I don't know anything about this environment. I don't know much about boys.
And I really know nothing about drugs and alcohol.
But, I have never once felt out of my element. We were leaving the facility yesterday and I was suggested that I don't go on Wednesday because I have so much to do. (We will be taking some of the boys to deliver Chirstmas meals) And my Cowboy said to me "They really enjoy you being around." I kind of blew him off. And said something about them just being nice to me. But what he said next got me to thinking. "No really your the only mom/grandmother". . .
Oh thanks this is great. . . I want to be the jammy fun adult and they look at me like a grandmother. What a minute I am not old enough to be thier grandmothers!
But I realized he was right.
I really am the only female that is there regularly. There are a couple of other ladies that come with thier husbands ocassionally and they mentor certain boys. But I am the only one that is there two or three times a week. We work with different groups with each of the programs we provide so we get to know almost all 48 boys.
And I am Blessed. I am Blessed to do Chapel every Sunday. We are beginning to have a regular group of 6 or 8 boys. And usually about 5 or 6 new ones every week.
And I am thankful. I am thankful God is using me and that he is so much smarter than I am because I never would have ever imagined being where I am.
I pray that whoever is reading this will be encouraged to answer God's call. No matter where you are or what season your in God has a place for you to serve him. Your service may be the blog your writing now. You may be encouraging me and others through the words you are writing. Your service may be raising a pre-schooler and teaching him God's ways. But even while raising a pre-schooler God can use you to touch someone elses life. It might only be through a cheerful shopping trip. Believe me grandmothers like myself notice the mommies that are happy with their children during a trip to Walmart or Target. And we all notice the ones that pay no attention to thier children and let them act up or ignore thier needs.
Don't ever think your 'Just a mommy' or 'Just a grandmother' because given the chance
God can use you to be a Jammin' mom or Grandmother.
And when you let him you'll start Stompin' too.

Welcome to my really late Then Sings My Soul Saturday post. Today was a day of catch up for me in the kitchen and laundry room.
While working on music for chapel service tomorrow I found this and just had to go ahead and post it.
I hope you enjoy.
You may visit Amy Wyatt for more illustrations of God's word and Promises through song.
May your Christmas be filled with God's love.

Are you looking for a last minute gift idea? This is a wonderful devotional book by
C.D. Baker. 40 loaves includes daily readings to renew a hungry spirit. I enjoyed reading this book so much. It is a great book for mature believers as well as new believers. It is a great book to give to someone searching or asking questions.
Each chapter includes a story backed up with scripture. And ends with Food for thought which include questions for further reflection. And finally a prayer.
Here's a few of the topics:
Here’s a summary:
“Why don’t I have more faith?” I was encouraged by the idea that we shouldn't worry about not having enough faith because we should take comfort that Jesus has all the face we need.
"Why am I so confused about finding God's will?" What a great chapter and great questions to consider. Here's a couple: have I been afraid of missing God's will for my life? What is wisdom? And, how do I know when I've found it?
And in Chapter 32 a question Why am I so easily disappointed in life? This chapter ends with a prayer.
Open my eyes to see as you see;
Open my heart to expect by faith;
Open my hands to hold hope loosely;
And let my disappointments fade away in your love.
The book includes 40 short simple to read chapters based on 40 questions the author asked himself. Readers will be encouraged, challenged and invigorated. And readers will be drawn to explore thier own questions.
So now your thinking I have to have this book. Or, this would be a great gift for _______. Well I checked it out you can get it at Amazon. com.

This was just after the afternoon nap I didn't notice I should have combed his hair.
Rachel Anne over at Home Sanctuary got me to thinking about Christmas traditions and decorating. I remember when I was a young and actually not so young mom I was a little festidous about how things needed to look.
Actually that is why the kids had trees in thier own rooms. That was when we moved to our dream house and we had a tree in every room. The trees in the living areas needed to look just right.
Actually I think the whole idea of the children having their own trees is a good idea if it is done for the right reasons.
Mine weren't. And that is just one of those things I wish I could do over. I wish I had been a little more relaxed in some areas.
This is the tree that the toddler decorated.
And by the way remember the ornaments that weren't used on the trees in the family and living room well this is part of them. Somehow or another when I went to get ornaments out the only box I could find was my son's box. Hence cats. There were a few random ornaments mixed in with greenery and candles they made thier way onto the tree too.
And if you look really closely some are clumped together. And some spots are empty but that is what happens when a toddler decorates the tree.

As I think of all the effort we expend in the decorating, shopping, cooking and parties. I pray that the real reason for this season is not forgotten.
I wish the above photo was larger but I thought it was great.
If your tired and worn out from all the things surrounding this time I pray that you will take a few minutes and rest and remember the real reason for the season.

Totally not done. But you can see a tiny corner of my table set for a meal with the family.
When our daughter was 8 and our son 10 I stumbled onto some sets of Christmas dishes at Sam's Club. Little did I know what I was getting into. They were Spode Christmas Tree. I had no idea what I was buying. If I did I would have bought the entire stock! They were cheap. They were there two years in a row and I bought two sets for each kid so they each have a serving of 8. We used them every year beginning on December 1st. Each year I bought a different serving piece.
Now my daughter in love uses them and they love them.
Now if your on a budget and trying to be frugal I don't advocate buying the spode. I sort of got myself into a pickle with it. I had no idea how expensive they are.
But, there are adorable dishes everywhere now days.
And, I think this is a great tradition.
I hope you enjoy my little glimpse. Keep coming around because next week I will be sharing the entire tablescape and I'll be showing how I got that tree in the pot.
Happy decorating and

This post may seem un-Christmasy but it really isn't ...

That is my kind of snow. I have to dig out my snow globes and figure out where they will go but the house is coming together slowly. Bet you can't wait to see photo's! 'til I get it done here's a cute one . . .
Monday, December 7, 2009
But I got the background changed. Although I loved the water scene and the quiet peacefulness of it I needed something that spoke of Christmas.
I wanted to join the blog Christmas decoration blog tour but had problems that I won't mention getting the decorating done and camera problems.
But today I am taking the day off (at least part of it) from normal things and playing and having fun because it is my Birthday . . .
Happy Birthday to Me!
Ya'll have a good day and I will be back tonight. Maybe with photo's of my day. I can't decide.

Do you ever have to just resolve to have faith and trust. To trust anyway. Even when your in a stormy situation.
Do you think of the words to Praise you in the storm? I love that song. We listened to it this morning in worship. Well some listened I sang. I didn't sing loud but I sang. Not because I was Praising in a storm. But because I was simply praising.
The other day I got an email. The subject line read Dear Sherrie. I spell my name Sherry. I ignored it for a couple of days thinking it was spam but I didn't delete it intending to open it on my phone just in case. Today I opened it on my phone. Here's what it said . . .
I'm not sure if you remember me or not, but my name is ______. I worked with you for a while making up community service hours almost three years ago (wow, I'm getting old!). I was thinking about my times at Mission Makeover and really wishing I could be back there helping and volunteering, not on terms of making up community service hours! I wanted to share with you that I have come to Christ, and I am now attending Gateway Church in Southlake. Currently, I am living in Chicago, but I'm moving back home for a semester before I transfer off to Texas State University in the fall. So anyway, I was searching volunteer opportunities on Gateway's website and came across Mission Makeover and was reading through and thinking how familiar it sounded! I had forgotten what your service was called, but then I saw the catch line, "Mending lives one stitch at a time," and it suddenly hit me that it was you! Ha-ha. I kind of forgot how to sew, but I know I could pick it up quickly again. I was just wondering if I could come back and help out every now and then with Mission Makeover when I move home. I'd really love to experience it from the side of truly volunteering.
Thank you so much and God Bless,
Talk about making my day. I opened the email on my phone while we were driving to the boys prison facility where we volunteer. Reading that email was bittersweet. It was a huge blessing to read the words to learn that she has accepted Christ. Bittersweet because we no longer do the ministry that she is referring to.
Our ministry is 6 years old today. It has changed and evolved over the years. Only God knows the why. The how all centers on finances. There is just no funding.
When I read emails like this one it breaks my heart that we no longer have the opportunity to work with local teens. To share God's love and plant seeds. To hopefully help them make better decisions so that we won't be working with them in either of the two prison units where we work now.
So for now because the unit is 10 minutes from our house and because God has opened many doors we worship with 10 or 12 boys every week. We began a few weeks ago with a Bible and a message. The second week were blessed with music provided by a group from a local church. Unfortunately they are not able to come every week. So we began using our lap top and a jam box which btw only had a cassette player. No c.d. But today we were Blessed because we now have our own complete sound system with speakers, mic. and it is so loud the staff asked us to turn it down! It als has a bunch of bells and whistles I don't understand! All because a group of people that volunteer at Texas Motor Speedway took up a donation and bought it for us.
I hope that you are still with me. I know this is a really, really long post but then if your still here you understand. God is blessing.
Sometimes I wonder why we aren't doing what we did before. And I pray almost daily that he will open the doors again. But I know that he has a plan and that; it is like one of the boys asked today... 'that God will show me the road he wants me/us to go down right now. '
And so I will trust him anyway. And I pray that every once in a while he will remind me that it is the way he wants it to be 'right now'.
BTW your wondering about the photo. It is freeeeezinnng here and that photo looked warm!

...let your light shine before men , that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
And during this holiday season I hope that our light shines so that the people we meet or the people that we already know see Jesus in us and get the real reason for the season.
So today and this week I challenge you to be a light.

As your preparing for Christmas I am sure many of you have cold weather and lots of snow but here we have none. And I am thankful. Don't get me wrong I think it is pretty to look at. And well God was really smart because someone had to live in Texas so he chose me.
Here's how we do Snow Angels . . .
I know the real ones are prettier.
And this was too cute so I had to share it...

As well as I . But I have no photo's ready so I thought I would share a photo of a table already prepared for a formal Christmas Dinner.
Although this is an archived photo from 2007 I got to thinking about the people that might be sitting at this table this year.
And, these verses came to mind.
Psalms 46:10-11 "Be still, and know I am God; I will be exhalted
among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth." The Lord Almight is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
As you consider the decorations of your home and the guests that will enter this season. Won't you take the time to pray that all who enter be reminded of the reason for this season.
May our God be exalted on the earth this holiday season and may we Be Still.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. Tomorrow will be a really busy day we are delivering turkeys and a box filled with staples to 6 families that our ministry helps through the kids backpack program.
Thursday I'll be doing this...
I love, love, love bread. We'll be eating at Cracker Barrell Thursday then Friday we are cooking. Yum I can't wait to be with everyone.
Praying you all have a wonderfully Blessed time with family. I will and I will be praying for those that are alone.
Monday, November 23, 2009
Me, neither. Not yet, anyway.
But with a little head start, we'll be on our way...with a festive spirit!
Even though Thanksgiving is only a few days away, there are things we can do now to insure that the day will be a peaceful celebration, instead of a frantic rush at the last minute.
Today's Small Thing do one thing ahead of time. Start by making a checklist of things to pack, things to purchase, and/or things to bake so you won't be running around like a headless chicken.
Check your pantry supply for baking items. I'm out of shortening and low on flour.
Purchase "extra" things like butter, eggs and milk for the extra pie or dessert you forgot to make.
Wash sheets and towels so they are ready to go before company arrives.
Wash sheets and towels so you have something clean to come home to from your trip.
Bake and store what you can, if you can keep from eating goodies ahead of time.
Clear out space in your freezer for leftovers.
Purchase storage containers so they are ready for duty after the Big Meal.
Assess tablecloth/centerpiece/serving dish situations: do you have what you need? Last year, I realized I didn't have enough glasses because I counted them up beforehand.
Polish silverware (or buy plastic ware)
Start a Christmas Planner
Ticking even one item off your list will help you relax and enjoy the next few weeks. I want to be joyful and grateful, in spite of our tight budget and time constraints, and being proactive will get me going in the right direction.
POINTS: 60 for giving yourself a head start by DOING one thing that you're tempted to procrastinate
Share your ideas! What can you do NOW that will make a difference later?
And while we're on the subject of getting ready. And thinking of things that will make a difference later. Let's think about those people and maybe family members that don't Jesus as thier personal savior. During this time of Thanksgiving wouldn't it be great to be able to be thankful for thier salvation. Pray with me today for those that are still in need of a savior.
Sunday, November 22, 2009
Sometimes all of us feel that way. Sometimes even during the preparation for a holiday feast in a few days we don't feel a lot of Joy.
But if we stop and remember that even though there might be financial hardships, family disfunction or many other reasons for less than thankful hearts; that we really can be Joyful.
We can be joyful because of what Christ did for us.
And so, I challenge you this Thanksgiving to think beyond Thankfulness and consider it pure joy that you can have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

I am wondering what date night is to you?
Is it the weekly Friday night dinner out and a movie? I have a friend that has been married for close to thirty years and this has been thier tradition.
Do you have a date night with your hubby?
I want to hear about your special dates. Date night has never been a priority in our marriage and I need ideas to drag that Cowboy of mine off the couch.
Would you write a post about Date Night and then come back here and let me know.
You'll even get a chance to win a fun gift in the weekly drawing.
It's so simple:
Just write a post and come back here and leave me a comment. You don't even have to write about a real date night. Make one up. Maybe write about your dream date or fantasy date.
Who wouldn't want to be picked up by their hunk.. . . and be given an expeeeeeeeeeeensive necklace and whisked away in a limo to a private jet and flown away to another city to see the opera? I mean really even if it isn't Richard Gere. LOL. I guess you can guess one of my favorite movies is Pretty Woman. (Sorry I know we're not talking about movies here. Please no comments on that.)
Back to the subject at hand Date Night write your post! You can go over and visit the darling Denise at Shorty Bears Place (blogspot) for some fun date night ideas.
Thursday, November 19, 2009
So, I am joining Sonya again to post 5 more things I am thankful for.
The one thing I am thankful for is that I can hear. I was reminded of this yesterday when I visited Alicia and she was talking about worship. One of the ways that I worship is when I am in the house alone. I take that time no matter what time of day it is to turn on the c.d. package on our t.v. It plays continuous Praise and Worship music. While I listen I have a journal that I write prayers in. Most time my prayers contain the lyrics I am hearing. Opp's that leads me to my other 5!
#2 I love Christian music. I am thankful that God gave so many people the words that I sometimes want to say but just can't articulate.
#3 I am thankful today that Cowboy was able to pay the electricity. We have heat and lights and the t.v. and the computer! I can listen to Praise music, I can visit my blogging friends and I can cook dinner. And I am thankful
#4 I am thankful that yesterday my Cowboy was surprised by a visit from our SIL (Son in Love) and our grandson.
#5...Which should have been #1. . . I am thankful that my Cowboy had a birthday yesterday. Which was the reason for the surprise visit.
Thank you for coming and visiting today. Please leave a comment and please hang around awhile. Hopefully I have written something that will encourage or inspire you.
And if you don't know I am still doing Friday Date Night. Post about a special date with your man or post about a dream date.

over at Critty Joy.
When I first saw this photo I knew I would have to use it for these verses.
I hope you enjoy this lovely illustration of God's word.
These commands that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6&7

Today I am joining Karla again in sharing our thankful hearts.
Here's what I am thankful for today . . .
I found this somewhere on the net and it cracked me up. I was waiting for the perfect chance to use it. I love my animals and no these are not mine!
I am thankful that God gave us pets. They just bring so much happiness.
And well they are just like our heavenly Father. The exist for us to love.
Have you loved a pet today?
Monday, November 16, 2009

My prayer for you today is that you have real peace and Joy and that you feel the abundant Love that is given you.
When I was looking for photo's for my mosaic the other day I found this. I wanted to share it with you today.
Monday, November 9, 2009
Horses and boots. I just love a comfy pair of boots.
Upper right are a pair of broke in sturdy boots.
In the center is my Cowboy no boots in this photo he had stopped by after work. This photo is probably 12 years old but I love it. The horse on the left is the same one in the bottom photo. We got him when he was 10. He was Cowboys horse for 3 years then our daughter inherited him. They are photo'd together on the bottom. We had him till he was 28.
The top boots I thought were fun. I would love to wear fun boots and skirts. Then bottom left are working boots. And lastly is a photo I found on the internet of a horse.
Thanks for visiting today and seeing two of my favorite things. For more mosaics go over to
Little Red House and you can go over to my other blog to see more of my favorite things.

Today I am especially glad you visited because I am sharing a very special video; that makes my heart sing and brings tears to my eyes. It is a departure from the normal video you will see and hear. Not only here but on the other blogs that I hope you visit today.
But the message of Hope and God's love is the same.
Last night I went on a date with my Cowboy.
We went to the 2009 OneHeartBowl at Faith Christian School. The outpouring of God's love for the players of the game last night made my soul sing. A team roster for Gainesville was passed out and here's what it said....
YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
Simply put, last year's game resulted in changed lives. It is our hope that many more lives and
hearts will be touched by your participation in this expression of love. The average rate of juvenile offenders returning to prison is 80%. As of today, every player from last year's
Tornado team that has been released HAS REMAINED FREE. We can continue this positive
influence, and ask you to pray with us as we continue our relationship with Gainesville
"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me" Matthew 25:45
Included on the roster was a request for mentors and pen pals. And a request for everyone to pray for the team.
And my Soul Sang. Today I pray that those present last night and those that hear this story; either here, through the media or see the movie that is coming out soon will take the challenge and pray for the kids. Not only those incarcerated in Texas but all over our nation. These throw away kids need to hear the message of the Gospel.
For more infomation on OneHeart visit OneHeartMovie.com
My post yesterday has a few photo's from last years game.
Friday, November 6, 2009
Yes. I am going to a high school football game.
To see Faith Christian play Gainesville State School. These photo's are from last years game. Which we did get to see. It was amazing. There were a ton of news stories about the game.
It was amazing last year to be apart of the evening. We had no idea what was going on when we sat down on the State School side. We are volunteers for Texas Youth Commission and this game happened to be close to our home so we went to support the boys. When we sat down there were some parents from Faith Christian on our side but we just thought it was overflow. It was Faith's homecoming.
But it wasn't over flow. They were sitting on our side to cheer our boys! Instead of doing a one of those tunnels for the home team to run through at the beginning of the game Faith's parents and kids did it for Gainesville State School.
So tonight I have a date! Kind of like old times. Goin' with my honey to a high school game.
Do you have a date night planned? Or an afternoon on Saturday?
Or are you like me you dream of date night?
Yep that's right I dream of date night. And I bet there are bunch of you girls out there that dream of a chance to run off with your sweetie for date. Even a few minutes of quiet alone without a toddler or teenager needing your attention.
Girls we all need a chance to re-kindle that flame that drew us to our sweet heart.
And maybe there are those like me that need encouragement and ideas to drag our honey off the couch or out of the garage or away from the computer.
So help us out and share your dates with us. Give us some ideas for date nights. Especially those cheap ideas because let's face it there are a bunch of us that are on a budget. Or have no budget at all. Write a post and grab the date night photo then come back here to my blog and leave me a comment to let me know you wrote a post. You can do it anytime during the week.
Each Monday I'll choose my favorite idea and send you a thank you present. If you don't get it posted before Monday that's o.k. it'll just go into the next week.
I cannot wait to see all the ideas. Have a great weekend and enjoy your Hubby.
