More than just thankful

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Psalms 100:4  


During this difficult year, I have chosen to focus on love, joy, thankfulness and gratefulness.  It has not always been easy to keep my focus there, but the Lord continues to give me the courage and the strength to do so. 

2020 has given me the opportunity to be closer to my Lord and savior, my church family, my friends, my children, and my grandchildren. I have learned that being thankful is not the end but only the beginning. It is from deep within the heart that gratitude shows itself through love, devotion, and commitment towards those who mean the most in your life.

Sewing lesson

This week, I taught David how to sew using my sewing machine, but did not think his first lesson would be sewing face masks.  Stay safe and well.

Death of my mother - Omie Mae Reaves

2019 ended on a sad note. My mother passed away on New Years Eve. David and I made it to Maryland just an hour before my sister gave me the news.  I did not get to see her before she left this world, but I know I will see her again.  I was able to say goodbye and that I loved her so much by  phone on Christmas Eve.  All is well.  No more pain and sorrow for her now. I love you, Mom.
