A Good Day

I love days like today!! Days where I worship my Savior. The sun was shining. We shared lunch with treasured friends who remind us that God is good and He is faithful. Afternoon spent with precious girlfriends, talking, laughing, and living. 
Today, the anniversary of my Granny's death could have been spent gloomy and sorrowful but instead I am clinging to His promises and His goodness.
 God is good, SO GOOD!!!! 
"Through these trials You have always been faithful
You bring healing to my soul

I am not alone, I am not alone 
You will go before me You will never leave me"

I Love You More Today

I enjoy time with my friends...away from normal activities where we can have time to just sit and share.  I don't get to do this as often as I would like for various reasons, but when I do, I cherish the moments.

More of You, Less of Me


My Want To Needs a Tune Up

As I thought about what to write about, I had many different things come to mind but really I will just start off with my desires for the new year.  Every year I think about what I can do to make this year even better than the year before.  That is always my problem...with everything in life.  I.  What can I do....the problem is that I just try too hard.  I am a perfectionist by nature.  That is just simply who I am.  I like things to just fall into place.  I like to have a plan and when that plan does not work out, my life seems to crash down on top of me at a devastating speed.  I know that sounds dramatic, but honestly, it is true.  I can be having a great day and one thing....tiny thing can make me lose control.  Control.  That is what perfectionism is all about.  Havin…
