No Change For Me!

A few weeks ago I posted that I may be making
changes to my blog.

I gave the idea of changing much thought,
pondering and prayer.

Blogging has changed in the last year or so.
It just isn't the same as it was when I started
Many years ago.
And to tell you the truth I have kind of lost interest
in my little partner, Karie's Chic Creations.
I thought about changing the name.
But how do you change the name of something you 
named to begin with.  Nope, I just couldn't do that.

So then I thought of changing my content.
But geez, I kind of like to show you my little
part of the world. . .it isn't much, but I live here
and I kind of like to show it off.

And what about all of you that follow me?
I have made some friendships here.
And once you are my friend you will
always be my friend.  You see, I believe
Friendships are Eternal.
I don't believe in coincidences. 
We are friends for real.

Sooooo! I don't think I will be changing anytime soon.
I really like to blog, and I like what I write about.
And if someone may not like it, then that is ok too.

So me and the little Terrorists,
Teddy Roosevelt and Johnny Cash
Will still be Blogging  and telling world
about our life here in our little spot in this massive 
place called Earth..
It is a tiny spot, but we like it and we want
to tell you about it.


Oh, and one more thing I am a 
I belong to 
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

My religion is very important to me.
It is very much a part of who I am.
So you will hear a lot about my life
My Talents, My Activities, My Family and 
My Belief
in God and in His Son Jesus Christ.

Oh, and did I mention we will have  
A Good Time.

I hope you will continue with me.. . .and if you
are new to my blog,  please come back again.

Hugs to all,

A Random Act of Kindness

Hello my friends,
I first want to say how sorry I feel for the  good 
people of Texas.  Oh, my goodness!
My prayers are with  each person
whose life has been 
affected by this devastating act of nature.

May God be with you as you 
recover and rebuild.

A few days ago my dear friend Diane brought me this
beautiful Sunflower.

She told me she was taking the counsel of
President Thomas S. Monson.
(The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints)
Who said.
"do random acts of kindness".

Diane's random act of kindness certainly
made me feel better.  

Diane had no way of knowing that the day she brought me
the beautiful Sunflower, I was having a very rough day.

Her simple act of bring me a beautiful flower,
cheered my weakened heart.

I challenge whoever reads this post to
do a "Random Act of Kindness".

Let's fill the earth with kindness to one another.

This Beautiful World

With all the turmoil that is going on in the world today
one can become very discouraged and worried.
I certainly have my times of great concern, and anxiety
over events that happen.
I have reflected upon the great blessings 
I receive each day, rather than seeing the world
in such turmoil I stop and view the world
and see all the wonders and beauties.
I know my Heavenly Father loves me
And He loves all his children.
We are more alike than we are different.
I feel honored and blessed that I live at this time
here on earth. . 
 This past week end I had the opportunity to sing in my
Stake Choir, for our semi-annual Stake Conference.
(The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).
The title of the song is 
My Heavenly Father Loves Me
Words and music: Clara W. McMaster

 Several phrases and lines touched my heart deeply.

He gave me my eyes that I might see

He gave the gift of touch.
That I might feel.

He gave me the ability to "feel"
with my heart.

He gave my ears that I might  hear
The magical sound of things.

He gave 
me my life, 
my mind, 
my heart

I thank him reverently
For all his creations, 
of which I’m a part.

We all live on this beautiful planet called earth.
We are part of His Garden. . . with its many colors.
and much diversity. 

I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me.

I will be joining

I Have Done What I Could

So much has been going on in my small part of the world.
I have missed my little blog very much.
As simple as it is, it still gives me pleasure
to post pictures and tell about my life.

There are times when "life" gets in the way of "living".
That seems to be the case for me this past month.
I have always know that life is fragile.
Things can change in seconds.
No one is immune to the bitter, but it rings true
for the sweet.  We all experience both.
How would we ever know the sweetness of life,
if we had not tasted the bitterness.

I count my blessings every day. Every hour, every minute.
I know that the trials of life are also here to be counted as
blessings. . .For everything gives us experience.  

Trials change us. . . hopefully for better. . .Nothing
goes unnoticed by our Heavenly Father and His Son
Jesus Christ.  If He cares for the little sparrow how much
more He cares for us.

I certainly have had my fair share of trials.
I have come to realize, that with my head held high
and my eyes wide open, I can face challenges and trials,
with the Grace of a Woman.
I believe God blesses us in all things.
