Love is patient, never envious. Love is not inflated with pride, nor rude. Love is not resentful. Love rejoices over truth prevailing. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes. Love believes the best of every person. Endures everything without weakening. Love never fails or becomes obsolete. What will remain or abide is Faith, Hope and Love; and the greatest of these is Love. I hope I can always emulate the Father who created me. I only hope I can pass forward the Agape love, adoration, and faithfulness to my friends and family.The love that comes to me, through God The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit! This is my life's mission.

Hi All,
A little about me: I'm a 59 yr. old intelligent, loving and loved woman! The most important thing in my life is God, and my family. I'm retired from the Horse Racing Industry since 2005. I was a Thoroughbred Trainer, and still hold a trainers license through the Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission. I worked with thoroughbreds for 23 years. And I love horses.

My interest include, Bible study, reading, horses, cats, and fish, virtually all animals. But these are my favorites. Also swimming, and spending time with church family, and my family, and Most of all spending time with God.

I live in Pa, though originally from the N.J. Shore. I'm seeking to improve my health by making healthy choices, eating fewer calories daily, losing weight and becoming more active!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such
things there is no law." (Galatians Chapter 5, verses 22-23)


When you spend your life putting pressure on yourself to go from start to finish without appreciating and learning along the way, you are doing yourself an injustice. If you can stop and appreciate everything in the middle maybe your journey would not be as stressful.

Quotes to keep you on your toes!

Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.
Johann Gottfried Von Herder

"I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love." Mother Teresa

"One should eat to live, not live to eat." - Moliere

"You don't live on what you eat, but only on what you digest. This is true for your mind as well as for your body." -Benjamin Franklin

    A Mother's Love

    There are times when only a mother's love
    Can understand our tears,
    Can soothe our disappoints
    And calm all of our fears.

    There are times when only a mother's love
    Can share the joy we feel
    When something we've dreamed about
    Quite suddenly is real.

    There are times when only a mother's faith
    Can help us on life's way
    And inspire in us the confidence
    We need from day to day.

    For a mother's heart and a mother's faith
    And a mother's steadfast love
    Were fashioned by the angels
    And sent from God above.

    I Said A Prayer For You Today
    by Frank J. Zamboni

    I said a prayer for you today
    And know God must have heard.
    I felt the answer in my heart
    Although He spoke no word!

    I didn't ask for wealth or fame
    (I knew you wouldn't mind).
    I asked him to send treasures
    Of a far more lasting kind!

    I asked that He be near you
    At the start of each new day;
    To grant you health and blessings
    And friends to share your way!

    I asked for happiness for you
    In all things great and small.
    But it was for His loving care
    I prayed the most of all!
    Hugs, Teresa

    When it comes to counting blessings,
    There are surely very few
    As precious and as meaningful as someone dear as you,
    And that’s the special reason
    For this loving Christmas prayer…

    “God bless you for your thoughtfulness
    And keep you in His care.”
    Thank you for being a treasured part of my heart!!

    A Christmas Blessing
    God bless the master of your house,
    The mistress also,
    And all the little children
    That round the table go;

    And all your kin and kinfolk,
    That dwell both far and near;
    I wish you a merry Christmas
    And a happy New Year
