About Me

Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

"a friend loves at all times"

These are some of the lovely flowers and plants that our family received honoring my dad. Our friends were very generous with their time and their resources. Several made the hour trip to visit on Friday, even more made the trip to come to the service on Saturday. They will never know how special that was to me. My step mom has a large family, but our side of the family is small, so having my friends around during this difficult time was very comforting.
My dad's pastor called today to tell me he was praying for me. He didn't want me to think that I had been forgotten. What a thoughtful man he is!
Why do you think these folks responded the way they did? Yes, they love me, but more importantly, they love their Lord. His Spirit in them compelled them to love, to encourage, to sacrifice....... to minister to me and my family.
How blessed I am to know these people, to call them my friends, to call them my brothers and sisters in Christ, and to know that I will share eternity with them.


  1. How very special! What did you do with all the houseplants? Just curious. I am a self-admitted plant killer - don't know why cause I come from a family of green thumbs...but not me. I just could not keep all the plants that we received and we took a large donation of them to our local assisted living facility - and they loved them! I was thrilled so many could enjoy them - as they were put in the lobby and the dining rooms!

    God certainly blessed with the love of friends for you -

  2. Hi, Debbie,

    I am just getting back into blogging after a two week break. I was so sorry to read about your Dad's homegoing...What a joy and comfort to know that you will see him again!

    I am praying for you and your family.


  3. The plants look beautiful even if ours didn't make it back to WR! Love you and enjoyed seeing y'all this past Sunday afternoon!

  4. it'll be nice to have one of those at the wedding since Pappy won't be there
