Blissful Blessing

HEAT!!  Having heat is the warmest hug, wrapping around my body, after coming inside from 40 degree weather!!

What a blissful blessing to have central HEAT, and air!    At my new place, I only had window units that were air conditioners.   AND, I didn’t possess a space heater, until I moved here to my newest place, and bought adopted my happy heater.    He makes me so happy!!   {Hence the name.}

What a cute button nose, and wide awake, bright eyes! That smile on its lips is a joy to behold.

 

 

Now, I have 2 sources of heat!   I’ll thank God till I die, that I got this house!!!

Unless you have lived through a 40 degree night, with no heating, and no electric blanket. you’ll never quite appreciate the blissful blessing of finally having heat!!     (Yes, I did survive, thanks to the 1 thick blankie, and 1 thick quilt I had.    Thanks for your concern!)

So, if you have central heat, or a heater of any kind, be thankful for your blissful blessing!!

Thoughtful Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a wonderful day.  We can just sit around with our families, most of us anyway, eating and visiting.

I’m so grateful for my whole family.  My  daughters, DD1, and DD2, and SIL (son-in-law), and PP.  Then there’s DH, and Sweet Friend .  And my birth family- Mama, Brother, and Shirley his wife,  Sister, and her kids Nick, Kristen, and Jaime, and 1 special Ex-Step-mother.

Then my whole extended family, on both sides- Hawkins and Chaney.  If I tried to name them all, I’d use up all my memory here on WP, just for their names!!

I will be with my peeps, eating the fore-amentioned pies, and being so thankful to God for ALL my blessings.

One of my biggest blessings is my home, but something big is in the works there…..   You have to wait! It’s a surprise!  I know, I know, I hate it when people do this to me too!!  Sorry!!

Anyway, as I was saying, my biggest blessing is Jesus Christ, my Savior.  Then my family, friends, church, etc.  Last on the list are things: my home, my car, etc….   Things should never come before people!

 

Another blessing we all enjoy here in America, is freedom!  And it definitely isn’t free!  Thank you Veterans!!

So, Celebrate!  Be thankful!!  Eat, drink, and be merry!  Most of all, appreciate all your blessings every day.

I love y’all.   Y’all are a big blessing to me for reading, laughing, and commenting.   Thank you!!

 

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and to all a good meal!

Wearing O’ the Green

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Did you know St. Patrick was a missionary to the Druids in Ireland?  First, he was carried there as a slave, and later came back as a missionary.  He used shamrocks to explain the Trinity.  Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are 3 persons in the Godhead. Yet, 1 God.  It is a mystery, but true.

Leprechauns and all the green blarney was added later, to paganize a day celebrating a saint.(I just found out, his color was originally blue!    Whaaa???  We’ve been pinching the wrong people all these years!!)

Nothing wrong with having fun, and celebrating.  Just remember where the day really came from.

(Yup, that’s my real ear.  Hope I remembered to clean it good! )
