Happy Birthday to Kira!! 4 is a pretty special year! She is a big sister is that correct?

Getting to spend the day with my Grandson tomorrow!! ;-)

Happy Monday Everyone!!

Elsie the cantata sounds lovely! Bible study sounds great too. I am assuming Sean McDowell is Josh's son? I haven't heard of him in a very long time but DH used to read his books quite a bit when we first married. ;-)

Have lots planned for the day. Puppies started the day at 6 AM!! That is a good start to get the day started early! ;-)

Hi All,
Am home from DS's graduation! So proud of him! He starts his assignment the 2nd week of January. He will be home for Christmas. We will be helping him make the move. The ceremony was God honoring and there was prayer for the graduates and asked in Jesus name! So thankful for this bold stand.
DGS is doing very well. He will be a month old this week already! So cute and such a good sleeper!

Anjay so glad to hear about your progress!! So glad you are feeling better and hope you get more relief as they find solutions for you!! Glad you and your DH had a good weekend or was that last weekend? LOL

Elsie you have been busy as usual. DS and Ddil have been dog sitting while I have been gone. The dogs have been outside too much and are not behaving inside! Oh those dogs are going to hate it when DS takes his German Shepherd to their new home! ;-)

1Wife glad you and your teens had some great times together! I have a gingerbread house and a gingerbread Christmas tree my children and my parents made the last Christmas my parents were with us. I sprayed them with lacquer and use them year after year! Next year I will have to keep my DGS away as he will want to eat them. LOL

Hugs and blessings to All

HI All

Well in the midst of the crazed mess with the report from donor and issue with woman - the elders of the church approved my report and today at church several of them came to me and said I have their backing because I have done nothing wrong.

My supervisor and I met - he is my "church dad" and wonderful Christian father figure for me and he said "You were right when you said you thought that the woman who kept asking you questions and giving you more to do from the other committee was the donor! I said I thought so too many questions for the "evaluation report" were WORD for WORD what she asked me a month ago when I said she could come to a Christian Education Board meeting and discuss any thing that I did since I report to them.

Long story short - she is NOT giving the remaining $ we she said would

PRAISE GOD the Elders met with the budget committee and NOW I AM FUNDED ALL THE WAY THROUGH 12/31/2015!!

I was NOT funded all the way through next year - the Elders feel that the word that God has given me to do is TOO IMPORTANT NOT to FUND and they read my report and over 75% of the elders came to me in church today to tell me I have been OUTSTANDING in my job and showed more diplomacy and grace under fire these last three weeks

GOD SURE TOOK CARE OF ALL THE DETAILS!!!

PRAISE YOU LORD!!!

Morning Friends,

This is a hard season to diet. I am just trying to maintain. I seem to go up and down a couple of pounds. I have decided to be happy if I lose just 1 pound. That has not happened, but that is my goal for Thanksgiving - New Years.

. One of my best friends went to be with the Lord this past July. We spent last New years and had Christmas events together so there many different emotions during this time. I have also had 3 close friends move. Just a different feeling around here.

We had 1 event cancelled today and 1 for tomorrow so I am going to enjoy some family time!

emoticon We had a party last night for some high schoolers. It was such fun. We had a gingerbread house decorating contest, white elephant gift exchange, games and a movie. My teens are exhausted today. We are going to try to get some school done. We will take some of a break, but not much, just break on days when we have plans.

Hope everyone is taking time to enjoy family and friends!

Blessings,
Ali emoticon

The luncheon was very nice...we had ham, cheesy potatoes, green beans,a roll, and pumpkin pie. There as special music also.

Yesterday I got gift cards for the grands so I think I am done now. I still have to get my Christmas letter and cards in the mail.

I will work on them while I am sitting in the gift shop at the hospital tomorrow morning.
My regular 6 month check up at the doctor yesterday didn't go so well either. Due to an increase in fluid retention, he changed my diuretic. My weight was up 1.8 pounds this morning. Also, he thinks my lack of energy and the fatigue are from my SADS so he started me on a low dose antidepressant. I will be rechecked in 6 weeks.

Today, I did get my small Christmas tree out and some lights turned on. Tomorrow I will get some small ornaments to put on the little tree. I didn't put the big tree up because of the little ones. I just don't see putting something up that they are going to get fussed at for touching. So we have to small tree up on a chest of drawers. It will have to do.

Today my neck pain is a little elevated on the left side so will take it easy today, it maybe because last night was the first night sitting without my brace on, but we don.t want my upper spine to become dependent on the brace.

Susie------what wonderful blessings God bestowed on you..

I've been a busy bee this morning---printed up new TOPS rosters for everyone, printed my family Christmas letter (now just need to get the cards done and in the mail--lol), and now am baking cookies for the TOPS bake sale tomorrow. I have 9 or 10 dozen cookies ready to go. Also some loaves of bread and 4 muffins. I plan on making a couple of cakes this afternoon.

I attended to wonderful Christmas parties yesterday. One a luncheon for us seniors and one with a Sunday School class at church. Both had great meals and terrific entertainment. It was a very long but fun day.

Blessings.............Elsie

We had two blessings in one day. I had a gift card for grocery store. Was buying $15 in food, the card did not work, so I said please cancel it, and walked out out. As I was getting in car the checker ran up to me with the food. The lady behind me paid for my food. Wow, praise God.
Then at Kmart was going to cancel layaway because we could not afford it. Payment was $32 and we only had $20. Unfortunately it took a very long time to fin d the order. To make up for it, they took our $20 and gave us the layaway. It's our daughter's Christmas gift. A small jewelry chest and necklace set. I got her a few pretty sweaters at yard sales. She's a really conservative and sweet 15 year old.

Praise his holy name!!!! Merry Christmas everyone!

Morning Friends!
All is well here. I have about 3 days worth of things to do in one day. LOL But there is always tomorrow. At least I have gotten my Christmas letter written and have started my Christmas cards! That is real progress!! ;-) Some of my Christmas decorations are up too and hope to finish that today and tomorrow.
Got to spend a lot of time holding my Baby Boy yesterday. Love spending time with him and his Mommy! He is such a sweetie!!

Anjay hope your Christmas shopping went well. So glad to hear DH will not be laid off this winter! What wonderful news!! Your quilting sounds lovely!!

Elsie sorry no official word on Harold but hope he is ok!! This is a hard time to lose a family member but guess there is no time that isn't hard there.

Hugs to all and sure am missing the regulars that haven't had time to post!

Hi Anjay......so good to see your post...remember God is in control......He hears us even when we don't know what to pray



God's gift to you: a clean slate every day: your gift to God: what you put on that slate....

Most people watch what they eat from Christmas to New Year's when they should be watching what they eat from New Year's to Christmas


Do your best today; do better tomorrow

The more I sit...the hungrier I get!!!!!

Yesterday was a better day, I have started to quilt again and even have went to a couple of classes, I am making Christmas hexagon placemats and a table runner I have 2 placemats to topstitch and the appliques to stitch onto the runner, then I am finished.
Tonight we are going Christmas shopping, I am trying so hard no to panic, but spending money scares me so much at the moment. Wayne got the news he will not be laid off this year. But it doesn't seem real to me, I am trying to pray about it, but winter lay-offs have become the norm for us, him not being laid-off will really give us the opportunity to get ahead a little.
Well ladies I wish you all a wonderful day.

Hi Friends!!
Julie - I love your new profile pic!! It's great!!

Elsie Praise the Lord for the gift card! How nice that was!! The round table hymn sing sounds lovely! We have been picking more carols this season ourselves. It is nice to sing favorites even if it is a repeat from last service!! ;-) Praying for Harold! Hope he is ok and will soon be home from the hospital!!

All is well here. Just busy, busy, busy!! Hugs to you all!!

Thanks Julie

another praise.......I received a $40 gift card from the hospital where I volunteer...

we had a fantastic Christmas praise program at church tonight--it is called a round table carol sing---and we actually sat at round tables...wonderful special music and then carols sung by everyone..pastor read the Christmas story to the kids---of course we BIG kids listened too....lol

the only sad part is the during morning service one of our deacons was taken out with chest pain...his name is Harold...he is a very nice man so please pray that all is well with him..

Morning,

Julie, thank you as always! You do a great job of this!

How was your Thanksgiving everyone? I gained! oh no. emoticon

Hope everyone is having a wonderful December so far and staying warm. We have been unseasonably warm for this time of year in Georgia. We have been in the 70's the last 2 days. Our weather is so weird. A week or so ago it was completely opposite.

I have been exercising most days. I take 1 or 2 days off a week. I have the spark tracker. Does anyone else? Valerx, Thanks for the info on the Youtube Channel. I will check it out. I have a friend doing the Youtube RUKillerFit? another one you all might want to try. I have not yet. This is my goal for today.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Blessings,

Updates on my prayer list is that my Dad gave the Living Trust to my sisters and so far I have not heard anything about it PRAISE GOD

been so busy with trying to get a survey out to volunteers and parents plus an evaluation of my program somehow someone (donors) wanted it done NOW - like REALLY it has created quite a headache because of the outreaches coming up this week, set up and Christmas PLUS we are almost FULL steam on Winter Bible Camp too - anyhow one of our elders is QUITE upset about it since the donor donated the $ with no strings attached and to demand an accounting hmmm - anyhow I was upset because I have done monthly reports for 15 months and I suggested just give them those BUT NO that will not work so I am going to get it ALL done via email mostly ad whatever surveys I have they will get copies OF COURSE my report/evaluation is done!

Busy as usually - Linus has an infection in his skin from the skunk spray - poor guy

heading off busy day tomorrow and I SO want to make Christmas Sugar cookies with my son tomorrow - wanted to go ice skating by my massage therapist and acupuncturist said NOT now my muscles are such a mess

Hi all. I don't remember if I told you this, but the judge gave my son full, sole custody of his daughter. What a relief. Thanks for all your prayers.

Thanks Elsie. I am using vinegar and water to clean the floor - hoping to neutralize the ammonia.

At the birthing center. After 36 hrs of labor that baby is almost here. Will be back later to give you details but maybe not until we have slept some! ;-)

hopefully you aren't cleaning your floor with ammonia because that is what urine smells like to animals so they think that is where they are supposed to go. Sometimes they just have a little set back. Do you scold her when she does this.......tell her "no, naughty" and take her outside even though she has already gone...they are like little ones get to playing and forget to go until it is too late...mainly it's just part of being a puppy....

Ali (1Wife2Mom)
1) Just an update to share on my prayer request. My ds had one lymes test come back positive and one negative. We just need prayer for this. Not sure what to do.
2) Please pray for my dd to continue to heal and that they would find the cause of her pains along with complete healing for her also.
Praise God we have a dr. willing to dig deep enough and listen.

Annie (ANNIEMARY5K)
1) Please pray that the Lord brings encouragement to my husband. That the Lord will speak very clearly to us so we know His will for our lives. Is He trying to tell us something? I pray we can hear and know and follow well.

Daddysgirl
1) Please pray for my precious Ddil, Aunt Izzy and our precious grandchild.
Due date was a week ago. Please pray for labor to begin naturally and soon and for health for them both and a safe, quick delivery!
2) Please pray DD and I will stay well so we can be at the birth.
3) Asking the Lord for safety for my children as they walk the path the Lord has directed them to follow. DS#2 only has 4 more weeks of training. This week is a very stressful and physical week just before they have time off for Thanksgiving.
4) Please pray for my Cousin, Peggy. She is only 49 and seems to be losing the battle with cancer. Her Mom and Dad, Marge and Joe are taking it very hard. They aren't sure if she will make it to the holidays this year. Please pray Marge and Joe won't be bitter toward the Lord but will trust Him as their Lord and Savior. Peggy and her husband weren't ever able to have children so Pray for him too as she is so much of his life.
5) Thankful for so many wonderful answers to prayers!! God is so good and faithful!!

Dorothy (DJ4HEALTH)
1) Please pray for my brothers and sisters and their families to come to Christ and also my parents. On my husband's side the rest of his brothers and sisters and their families to come to Christ too.

Elsie (Saint Bernard6)
1) Valerie.....healing continues from her emergency surgery
2) Vicky's (granddaughter)...that this job will be good for her
3) great granddaughter, Kira, that her eczema will get healed-----she is 3 years old and has to deal with the severe itching this disease causes.
4) Becka as she adjusts to being a single parent and this pregnancy will be without problems (she has an enlarged heart)
5) Me because Becka and the 2 little ones (will be 3 little ones) are moving back in with me
6) Bruce---anger issues and destructive problems have surfaced again
Praise: my washer, dishwasher, and stove have been repaired and was at a very reasonable rate..

Joanne (SUNSHINE1954)
1) Of thanksgiving for all our answered prayers, that Brendan continues to like his new school, that he is making friends at the new school and that he and Twyla are continuing to grow their friendship with the young Christian friends that God sent to them while on their cruise, Twyla is doing well in her second year of high school.
2) For Fran, Gary and Twyla's salvation as well as Brendan continuing in his spiritual growth.
3) That Brendan will, although now in a secular school, continue to rely on God and turn to Him in times of difficulty.
4) For Gary that God will lead a strong young Christian man into Gary's company and that this employee (whoever he may be) will be used by God to lead Gary to accept Christ as his Saviour.
5) For myself that I will persevere with the personal training as I struggle and feel discouraged and want to give up as the only result I am seeing is losing inches but little to no change in weight or body fat percentage.

Julie (ETERNALMINDED)
1) Pray for hubby’s health – all areas of it. Pray that he has a desire to take better care of himself!
2) Pray for all that is going on in the world. Pray for Christians all over who are being persecuted. Pray for Israel.
3) Prayers that Christians will be bold and not stick their heads in the sand!
4) Prayers that I can get my act together with regards to EVERY area of my life! 
5) Continue to pray for my family in the passing of my stepsister. Keep her children especially in your prayers!

Laura (His Own)
1) Pray that my Dad who finally got all his legal papers etc in order. Living Trust now in place and other items needed hands a copy over to my sisters so they will have them - PRAY that there are NO PROBLEMS either
2) Pray for a new kids program at church for grabs 3-5 - it starts Sunday the 16th
3) Pray as we begin our final prep and travel plans for Hawaii in January
4) Pray for our next Children's Ministry outreach "BELIEVE" for Christmas - that God will send the children and families who need to hear His Word
5) Pray for my solo on 11/23
6) CONTINUED Prayer for me as I begin to undergo some acupuncture treatments MORE importantly that I continue my witness with this woman who I met on the beach last summer when walking our Linus. LINUS continues to be a great witness tool and GOD always opens up the door for me to offer prayer for people!!
7) FOR OUR WORLD AND COUNTRY THAT NEEDS TO KNOW THE LORD that we are HIS missionaries RIGHT where we are

Hi All! Happy Weekend!

Elsie I have a question. The GS puppy has wet on the kitchen floor twice now. Last night we were so surprised we just put the her out and this morning we didn't see *who* did it, Just guessing since male dog walks and leave a trail and this was a puddle. How do we go about breaking her and why is she beginning to go inside when she has been so good about going outside. It has been wet with rain outside for both days. Last night we were thinking it was about time to put them out since they had just been playing hard, but oops we were too late. ;-) Thanks for any suggestions. I don't want to start bad habits now. Kitchen is tiled but most of the house is carpeted.

Julie I will send you an updated request list.

Hugs to you all!

Morning Friends!
It was a brisk 38 her this morning. The puppies are enjoying the playful weather! They sure remind me of little kids!! They have so much energy they don't know what to do with themselves. They have been playing for an hr and a half. I expect them to nap soon! lol

No Baby yet, but we are one day closer! ;-)

Elsie glad you have bare ground! It is supposed to get close to 70 today. I have some yard work to do before Winter settles in. I had better get to it! ;-)

Hugs to all and hope Everyone has a good day!

Hi All!

Elsie evidently she is a quick learner, she woke me up last night to let me know she needed to go outside! ;-) She did both and came back in and went back to sleep!! ;-) She is adjusting the food we use. I didn't know what she had been eating so I could mix it and gradually make the change. But she is doing so well. My DS is just going to love her. We on the other hand are really going to miss her when he takes her to his new home! ;-)

Hope you warm up like us. We are getting up to the 50s and 60s by the weekend!

No Baby yet but we are one day closer! ;-)

Hi Everyone!!
2 dogs are keeping us laughing! They are great friends already!l

Sash sorry it is so cold. You have enough time yet to even have a white Thanksgiving! ;-)

Elsie glad your roads are clear!! ;-) It was colder her this morning but is supposed to be warmer than yesterday by the afternoon. The GS puppy is a different color than I have ever seen. She is blonde all over except a black face and a black ring around the top of her tail. She is really sweet! Isn't supposed to be housebroken but hasn't had one accident. I just have to watch for her nervous pacing. ;-) We got up twice during the night but think that will calm down once she is used to being inside. She already scratches on the door to let us know she wants in. ;-)

No Baby yet! I make sure and answer all my texts quickly now! ;-) One of these days it will be ... meet us at the birthing center!! ;-)
Hugs to all!

It is just sunny, but really cold here. I wish we could get some snow. I would love to have a white Christmas. I am going to go tan and get my face waxed in a little bit.
