Hear It On Sunday . . .

I read this somewhere  Hear It On Sunday use it on Monday . . .
I don't remember if it was a blog link party or on facebook.
What a great way to think about the 'word' you hear.  Thinking about sharing it with someone. 

I heard this song this morning.  It was new to me. 




A beautiful song with an aswesome lyric.  Definitely worthy to share.

Pinterest Pic . . . Why Didn't I Think Of It

I am a huge fan of Pinterest.  I can sit for hours looking at Pins.
I probably have too many boards.  How many do you have?

My favorite pin from the last few days was this . . .

I love this idea.  It was one of those 'Why Didn't I Think Of It'
"Ah Ha" moments.

I have always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with my coat closet.  Back in the day when I had a house I always tried to keep our coat closet free of clutter and ready and available for when friends came over.    I have always hated fussing with hangers. 

This is the perfect alternative.  Love it!  

Joining Ann for Thriving on Thursday.


I tried to follow the pin to find out where it came from but I couldn't find out. 

So have you had any 'Ah Ha' moments because of Pinterest?

Winter Blues?

Do you feel Blue in the winter.  Maybe it's really cold and cloudy
and you can't go outside much?
Or snowy?  I love photo's of snow.  Houses with snow, snow fields,
horses like the above photo.  I feel blessed to live in Texas.  We don't really get snow. 

And our winters are usually blessedly short.  A day or two here or there of icy weather.  Lots of chilling winds.  But a lot of the time our afternoons warm up. 

Today I am sitting with the patio door open.  It's a beautiful winter day. 

I was looking around my house as I transitioned from Christmas decorations to my winter decorations.  

And I realized that I seem to use certain items for the winter. 
I bet you do too.  Of course the throws come out.  Fires are lit. 
Probably not as many plants around.  

I noticed I tend to use candles more . . .




I love the soft glow of candle light.

The throws come out in the fall.  They stay with us through the winter.  On the back of the couch and on chairs making every room warm and cozy.  

This year we're enjoying our new patio.  We are enjoying the cool evenings.  It's a homey and welcoming spot. 
We enjoy watching the sunset.  Unfortunately we're not on the water.. . but every night God gives us a beautiful painting to enjoy.

No my winters aren't Blue.  I am happy and Blessed and warm and cozy. 

So how do you make your winters warm and cozy?

Happy Blue Monday

I've always enjoyed blogging on Monday and
visiting Sally for Blue Monday. 


Since I have a new job my post will be late but I wanted to join anyway and share this really cool
art work.
 My Cowboy stumbled onto these on the net.  This one is amazing.
 
Some cool Blues.   Go by Sally's and say Hi
and visit the other Blues.

On Sunday

How I start my day . . .
This is where I would be if I wasn't where I am . . .Yep if I was thinking about me this might be where I would worship.

But...it's not about me.  It's about more than me.
It's about sharing God's love.   And, that is what
I get to do every Sunday.  

 

I am on a Journey . . .

 

Sometimes it's a wild ride.  Sometimes it's slow and easy.    And it is a Joy.

Sweeeet Saturday

I used to join a really fun Saturday linking party.  I always enjoyed writing about what makes
my day Sweet on Saturday . . .
 
I've written about my sweet grandson and spending time with him
 
 
I've written about Sweet Saturday Dates with my Cowboy
 
 
 
I've written about Saturday laundry days.  When I was able to get the sheets off the bed before the cat settled in for a Cat Nap!
 
And whats going on in my sewing room. 
 
These are some of my favorite things to do.  Yes even doing the laundry. 
 
And, it seems lately that Saturday is a day I spend . . .
 
 
I love playing around with PicMonkey.
I am thinking this will be my new header.
I already added a new background. 
I'll be adding new photos soon along with the new headed.
 
So that's what made my Saturday Sweet.
How about yours?

Happy New Year

I cannot believe how long it's been since I posted last!

I wish I had left a candle in the window and told you where I've
been. 

I cannot believe I missed Christmas.  It's always my favorite time of year . . .

Of course it's not just about Santa.  It's about the 'real' reason for
Christmas.  But the trees, the decorations and yes Santa make it fun and festive.   Yes.  I missed Christmas with you my old friends. 



I've missed our chats.  I've missed visiting you.  I've missed your visits. 

I have a lot to tell you.  I have a lot to share.  I've been thinking about when I came back. 

What would I say here.  What would I talk about.   Would I join linkys and blog parties again?  Would I just write about what I'm thinking about and what I'm doing.


Will I write about my house, my home.  Will I write devotionals?
Will I write about my favorite things to do?  Like making quilts.
Taking pics, my dog or blogging.  Will I post favorite finds on Pinterest?  Pics of horses, crafts, things for the house.

Yes.  Just like my life my thoughts can be crazy and sporadic.  
They can be scattered.  

Yep it is a crazy, chaotic and eclectic world.  I think for me that's
what makes it fun.
