Sunday Blessings ~ Blessings from Pain
Pain is never an experience that any of us desires or looks forward to. In fact, most of us do whatever we can to avoid pain of any kind. We tend to do whatever it takes to keep pain at bay.
 
Pain however, is not all bad. Have you ever considered how our world would be without physical pain? At first glance it might seem to be a great idea. 
 
If we were not able to feel physical pain, we could injure ourselves and not know it. This could lead to greater destruction and possibly kill us. Pain sends … (4 comments)

Sunday Blessings ~ EXHALE!
 
Breathing is important.  The process of breathing is typically something that we don't think about until we have a problem with our breathing.  If you suffer from asthma or any other breathing difficulty, you most likely appreciate the act of breathing more than most.
 
Five years ago when I lost my left lung to a massive tumor, I too became acutely aware of the blessing of breathing.  Every breath was laborious and extremely painful after the surgery.  Still today there are times when just going up a flight of stairs is difficult.
 
The miracle however, is that our bodies were … (8 comments)

Sunday Blessings ~ Beloved Not Broken
Since returning from the excellent experience a few weeks ago in Orlando, FL at the John Maxwell Live Training event, I have been completely inspired to get a few things done.  One of the things on my "list" has been to get busy and publish the Women's Bible Study that I wrote called, "Beloved Not Broken".  Not only did I get inspired to get this done, I have also been inspired to spin-off in some other ares with this!
 
I am now creating a 3-day weekend Women's Retreat from the Bible Study and have been invited to … (13 comments)

Sunday Blessings ~ Branching Out!
This morning as I reflected over my past week, I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure in so many ways.  After the inspiring week that I spent learning from the top leaders in this country, being inspired to branch out and get out of my comfort zone is the most exciting.  Little did I know when I signed up for this conference would I come away changed, pumped up and ready to live out my dreams.
 
It is good when we take time to refuel and reassess.  Being around other like-minded people was phenomenal.  The energy … (7 comments)

Sunday Blessings ~ Thankfulness

As I ponder the blessings of a Sunday, the word "Thankfulness" came to mind today.  There are so many things that I am truly thankful for and don't ever want to take them for granted.  For today I will focus on those things that I am thankful for.
 
Being able to worship freely in this country as a Christian My spouse, children and grandchildren Wonderful friends My health My work My home My freedom  
May we always remember the things in our lives that we are thankful for.  Many of those things in my list have experienced strife, … (9 comments)

sunday blessings: Sunday Blessings ~ A Final Harvest - 11/23/14 09:31 AM
 
My sweet little 3 year old grandson was here visiting today.  He loves to "help" me so we headed out into the garden where there was much work that needed to be done.  After our recent freeze, many of the plants needed cutting back and the garden overall needed a cleaning.
 
He has his own little garden tools and it is so cute watching him "help" me.  Hopefully him working alongside me will instill not only a love of gardening but a good, strong work ethic.  Children are always so eager to "help" and it is important to allow … (7 comments)

sunday blessings: Sunday Blessings ~ Surrounded by Family! - 11/16/14 07:27 AM

Any day surrounded by loved ones is always special.  As the kids grow up and move out, having them all back home under one roof is especially sweet.  Today we had all but one of the grown kids home and our grandson!
 
The day was filled with laughter, hugs and some good chili on this cold Texas day.  We even got out the Christmas decorations early as we will be traveling and not back until December 5th.  So early decorations it is!
 
Blessings are all around us.  Take a moment to reflect on the many blessings in your … (6 comments)

sunday blessings: Sunday Blessings ~ A Quiet Weekend - 11/09/14 08:06 AM

 
Having a day or two to just re-coup or lay low is a good thing.  I am thankful for a quiet weekend at home these past few days!  Nothing on my agenda but resting, watching some great football, reading and relaxing.  We all just need to allow ourselves time to re-charge.
 
I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend.  I hear that most of the country this week will be getting some very cold weather.  Not sure how cold it will get here in south Texas though.  
 
Enjoy your week that is coming up!  Don't … (12 comments)

sunday blessings: Sunday Blessings ~ A Pooch to Snuggle With - 11/02/14 06:11 AM
 

Happy Sunday friends.  This Sunday I am especially thankful for my little snuggle buddy.  I am down for the count with pneumonia and this little guy has been my constant companion.
 
It's as if he senses that I am not feeling well. He will just gently lay his mead on me and look up at me with those adorable eyes. 
 
Thanks little Duke for being a loyal companion. Somehow helps being down so much better.  What a good dog!
 
I hope this Sunday is finding lots of blessing big or small to your life.

sunday blessings: SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ A NEW PUPPY - 08/22/14 01:05 AM

After losing my beloved little "Jack", the incredible spotted wiener dog who was my pal for 13 years, we just brought home today another little dynamo! Welcome little "Duke"!  He is a piebald miniature Dachshund and we are already in love!
 
We drove 2 hours to Belton, TX to pick him up.  We went and met him right after his eyes opened.  He is the runt and we immediately knew that he was the one.
 
Of course you can never replace a special pet but bringing in a new one can certainly help to heal our hearts.
 
Just look at those … (14 comments)

sunday blessings: SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ MY CUP RUNNETH OVER - 08/03/14 08:23 AM

 
What a blessing Grandchildren are!  This little guy simply steals my heart!  I am fortunate to be able to see him every week.
 
Hold them tightly as we all know that they grow up way too quickly!  Cherishing the moments each and every day!  Never forgetting to say a special prayer of gratitude for our blessings.
 
I wish you all a wonderful Sunday and hope that your hearts are full and your cup runneth over!
 
Blessings!

SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ SPRING FLOWERS

Can you believe that it is Sunday again?  Seems like these Spring days are just flying by.  With a hot market and extremely busy weeks, it is good that we have Sunday to sometimes get some rest and relaxation.
I noticed Spring flowers everywhere this weekend.  I love this time of year.  I also noticed lots of butterflies.  When I was a little girl I called the Flutterbys!
So Happy Sunday to each of you.  Hope you had a lot of Spring flowers to enjoy!  Spring flowers are the best!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all! I hope that you all are having a wonderful day no matter what you are doing on this day!  Here in south Texas, it is a gorgeous Spring day!
The flowers are blooming, the weather is warming up and St. Patrick's Day reminds us that the official start of Spring is only a few days away!  Time has simply flown by!
I know that I am blessed beyond measure.  Saw my sweet litte grandson today and welcome my daughter home this coming Friday.  I am so excited.  Being able … (3 comments)

SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ AN EXTRA HOUR OF SUNLIGHT!

Sunday seemed to come really fast this week.  Wasn't it just a few hours ago that I just wrote this Sunday Blessing post?  Wow does time fly.
Today we worked out on our property and cut down trees, piled up the wood and cleared our paths.  The drought has really taken its toll on our trees so being able to get out there and clear the debris felt really great.  We ended up with a huge burn pile that we can enjoy later.
Having the extra hour of sunlight was great.  We were able … (10 comments)

SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ A WARM FIRE!

Late this afternoon my husband rescued me from my sick bed.  I had been in bed for the past three days with the flu.  Today was the first day I was starting to feel human again.
He came in and said to get my warm clothes and boots on.  He whisked me into the truck and off we went to our property out in the woods.  I had no idea what he had planned.
Upon arrival, as we walked into the woods and came upon the clearing at the edge of the creek there sat … (10 comments)

SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ DAY DREAMING!
Today my sweet little grandson was caught in this photo simply sitting there day dreaming!  At only 20 months, you just have to wonder what his wee little mind was thinking.  How peaceful he looked just sitting there and looking up at the trees and the clouds.
Seeing him like this reminds me how important it is to take moments like this every day.  To never lose sight of the little things in life and to take time to reflect.  I hope that this little guy learns to do this throughout his life.
I hope that … (13 comments)

SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ A DAUGHTER'S SMILE!

Today I was able to see my precious daughter.  I have missed her so much as she has been away for quite some time.  Just getting to see her today and experience her radiant smile was a huge blessing.  At almost 25 years old, she still has that smile that captured my heart the first time she flashed it at me all of those years ago. 
She will be coming back to our area in about a month so we are elated!  Can't wait to spend some quali time with her and catch up. … (8 comments)

SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ OUR TEXAS GULF COAST

My husband and I were invited down to our friends beach home this weekend in Galveston. Although it was a bit blustery and overcast, we still had a fabulous time! We did a lot of sitting in the hammocks, playing mindless games and basically just resting from our technology laden lives.
Finding time to unwind and rest your body and your mind is so important. I found that by putting away my phone and just chillaxin was the best medicine for me. I of course did make a few business calls but nothing … (3 comments)

SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ ON THE BACK OF A HORSE

Sometimes the best blessings are those simple, unexpected adventures in life.  Today I was able to ride on 3,000 beautiful acres in Montgomery, Texas.  Sitting atop a horse is the only way to truly see the land.  It was the perfect day with blue skies and temperatures in the 70's. 
i also was able to see some old friends and catch up on their lives.  What a wonderful blessing while riding a magnificent horse.  I am truly blessed. 
Hope you all have a super blessed week coming up!

SUNDAY BLESSINGS ~ QUIET WEEKENDS!

 Isn't is wonderful when you can have a quiet, encumbered weekend?  This was one of those blissful weekends when we just didn't have anything on our calendar!  How great it was that we just did what we wanted without any constraints on appointments or commitments.
So, what does a weekend look like where we could do whatever we wanted?  Well for starters, we just did some things that we haven't had time to do.  We ran a lot of errands, checked out many local shops and even went to a local car dealership.  All in … (8 comments)
