Thankful Thursday

Tail Of The Dragon Ride (May 2015)

There’s so much to be thankful for. The list keeps getting longer, too, when I speak to my Holy Father to thank Him for these. I’m especially thankful that Steve (my husband of 41+ years) survived the triple by-pass back in December of 2018. He’s my riding buddy, best pal, and earthly confidante. I can’t imagine how difficult it would be if he wasn’t here to go through all this mess with the hysteria, the political unrest in our Country and the having to make insurance decisions every year. I get so easily muddled at times. (Really concerns me.) So often, I just hold him real tight and cry. I don’t understand why people want to live in fear, anger, and destruction all the time. :/ I don’t. Life is what we make it. And he reassures me that everything will be OK. We’re way out here in paradise, they are way out there in their Liberal ‘utopias’ and never the twain shall meet. So often he quotes God’s Word as a reassurance. Then I’m right as rain.

I’m thankful to live in the Country with a conservative Governor. Down a sleepy one lane dirt road that has few travelers. Far away from most of the world’s cares, problems, Leftist anarchy and silliness. We know all our neighbors and try to watch out for each other. I like that. ❤

One of my biggest failings is I tend to be too subitaneous (spontaneous). If I want, or ‘need’, to do something *boom* off I go with nary a thought to the end consequences. I am so thankful that God knows this. Because of His grace by the shed blood of Jesus Christ our LORD, He forgives me. He forgives all of us who have given our hearts to Jesus. He knows me better than myself. 🙂 When I pray, I try to always thank Him for His forgiveness and to use me to further His kingdom, even my shortcomings, which are many.

We are super dry right now in Southeast Georgia. The Weather Channel is predicting we’ll receive rain today. 80% chance! Gosh, I pray that’s a fact. The devil worshiping Leftists are always wanting to scare us with ‘global warming’ (one of their false sacraments) … they can’t even predict what the next hour will bring. So, I am thankful for whatever moisture the good LORD will bestow on our drought ridden area. He alone is wise. This is His creation. Thankfully, He’s in control of the sprinklers and knows what’s best.

And I’m thankful for you, dear reader! God has a purpose for us all. Trust in Him. He will always provide, protect, comfort and guide those who love Him and His Holy Word. Remember …

“The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?”

Psalms 27:1 NIV

Tuesday Tidbits

It’s a quiet day in the ‘hood. I was going to mow, but the zero-turning radius mower decided that today it would rest. That’s a bummer. So, I’ve been trimming, picking up limbs and other yard debris all over the acreage. The fun never stops. *lol* Steve is deer hunting in nearby woods. I heard a rifle report earlier. Sent him a text with the enigmatic query, “Was that you?” He wrote back his response and said he was looking for said quarry. The wood are really thick at that hunting spot. Hope he can find it this side of supper.

So, now the quaesitum for me is, what to do next? I’ll give that question some quiet reflection. Perhaps this is a God Moment and I should dedicate this moment of tranquility to reading His Word. Perhaps study next Sunday’s lesson. I’m sure the answer exists there. Even today’s devotional points this wanderer in that direction.

Proverbs 1:7 NIV

Hopefully, I won’t succumb to the siren call of surfing on the ‘net or shopping.

I pray y’all have a joyful day!

Sunday Sunday So Good To Me

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:  haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,  a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil,  a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
Proverbs 6:16‭-‬19 NIV

The Holy Scripture above is enough to prove that God sees all. He will not be mocked. It’s not acceptable to vote for anyone who thinks it’s OK to commit these acts of violence and destruction. To worship the devil with one hand and pretend to worship our mighty God with the other. Those who chose this will all meet a sticky end if they don’t give their hearts to Jesus Christ and be saved. One doesn’t want to be amoungst the unbelievers that will be cast into the eternal pit of punishment. It’s prudent to be careful who one votes for, or listens to, and what one ultimately believes in. 😉

Today is Sunday School and Church! I so look forward to this time with fellow believers every week. Our Sunday School lessons have been especially edifying. The booklet we’re using seems to be working it’s way through the many Jewish Feasts. All things in God’s Word point to Jesus. Everything. It’s all about Him. The lessons have been very fulfilling.

I pray all y’all have a safe haven in which to worship our loving LORD Jesus Christ. For me, it’s a time to fill my ‘tank’ with His righteousness and ‘grease’ the Spirit with His joy so my journey may glorify Him.

Have an excellent day folks! God loves ya and so do I. ❤
