Sweet Lord ~ I thank You for every breath that I take and for everyday You give to me to honor and follow Your will. I pray that you keep my granddaughters in Your arms and safe from all harm. Please prepare for her a godly man with a burning desire to follow You. A husband whose love for her is only outmatched by his love for You. A man who will cherish her and build her up. A man who will be a good father and provider. A man of integrity and courage. A faithful, kind, gentle and honest man. A man who never gives up and works hard. A selfless and humble man. A man who devotes himself to You and gives to others without complaint. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us........AMEN!

What A View

MAY YOUR WALLS KNOW JOY,
MAY EVERY ROOM HOLD LAUGHTER
AND EVERY WINDOW OPEN TO 
GREAT POSSIBILITIES!

~Maryanne Radmacher-Hershey~

 
 Very soon this will be the view from our kitchen window.  The Lord has provided us a home that I have been praying about for years.  Well, not this home in particular, but an old farm house.   You see it has been a dream of  mine since I was a little girl, and my husband's, 
to live in a farm house and the good Lord has seen fit to bless us with the 
desires of our hearts.  

We had a large list of things we wanted in the next house we moved to.  My sister said there was no way we were ever going to find a house that checked all the boxes on our list and that we should take some things off, compromise.  I said that we wouldn't because we were not going to put God in a box and that if He wanted us to have those things, He would provide them.  And guess what.....HE DID! 
HE....PROVIDED....EVERY...SINGLE....THING....
ON....OUR....LIST!

GOD, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
YOU ARE TRULY AMAZING!

Hydrate, HyDrAtE, HYDRATE

Staying hydrated is very important, not just during the summer but all year round. They say we need to drink half our body weight in ounces each day. I love water so it's not hard for me to do, although I have to admit I don't always remember how many bottles I have already had. lol

 I found this idea on pinterest and I LOVE IT. With this size bottle, I have to drink 4 each day, so I would put four rubber bands at the bottom. Each time I finish a bottle, I move a rubber band up to the top. When I have all four at the top, I am good for the day. The number of bands depends on amount of water you need an the size of your water bottle!

Stay cool....Be safe....And STAY HYDRATED!!!

A Planner & Creamy Spinach Artichoke Soup

I have been keeping a Happy Planner since the end of last year, trying to keep myself and our home organized.  It has really been helpful in different areas of my life. I love that I can decorate it how I want, using graphics of things I love. I had never done this before and I have to warn you....IT IS ADDICTING!!




I have also started making meal plans on Mondays again and the stress of  "What am I going to make for dinner tonight?" has been removed like a heavy weight off my shoulders.  I have been using pinterest to find different recipe.  You can find almost EVERYTHING there. The other day I found this recipe for  Creamy Spinach Artichoke Soup. OMGOODNESS.....it is DELICIOUS!!!  I knew I was in for trouble with that very first bite.  MMMM!!!  What a great meal on a cold, winter evening!

For the complete recipe, please visit Ginnie over at HELLO LITTLE HOME!

I have a very bad sinus infection which ended up with me at Urgent Care this morning. My Skippy Man has been such a good sport and has taken such good care of me today. He made me soup, brought me tissues and bought me cough drops and a Vick's Inhaler. Before he went to bed, he made sure I had a cup of hot tea with lemon and the tv remote. What a sweetheart! Thank you, sweetie!

I LOVE to stop on the side of the road and take pictures. Sometimes what you end up shooting is not what you stopped for in the first place!
