It's Friday!

WOO HOO! It is finally Friday and I do not work over the weekend, so I am happy to say that I will be able to clean my house and get some rest the next two days. At least, I hope I can. My daughter works all weekend and so far she has not been able to drive her truck due to the fact that the road we live on in still very slick due to the snow. Her little truck just does not do well in snow or on ice, so we have been making sure that she gets to work and the weekend is calling for more snow so I guess someone will have to take her to work. That will mean that I will have to get up early but not as early as today.

Of course, I work today and so that means an early morning as usual. I like being up early but I would love to sleep past 5:30 a.m. just a morning or two. If I got in bed earlier, the early wake up time would be fine, but I usually don't go to bed before 11:30 p.m. and I usually am up at least twice during the night. In the spring and summer., the early mornings allow me t…

Snowy Morning Praise

Good Morning and it is a snowy morning here on the farm. No, we do not have a huge amount of snow, but the howling winds and the snow flurries make for a wintry morning. The temps are not forecast to be out of the teens today with wind chills being in the single digits. BRR!!

During my Bible study today, I was thinking of all the times in the Bible that God is with those who think that they are so alone. Prime example when David defeats Goliath. David feels that he is facing an obstacle that could destroy him and yet with God on his side, David can defeat the giant in front of him. Also, there are so many verses that speak of God being with us and it is comforting to know that He is.

Many of us face obstacles in our lives and without the power of prayer and the confidence that someone is with you, it may seem overwhelming, but fear not for He is with you. Whether you are a Christian believer or not, God is aware of your battles and He is waiting for you to believe and ask for His help.…

Huge Powerball Winnings

Some one could wake up in the morning with a whole new outlook on life. For anyone that plays the lottery much, the Powerball draw tonight could be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The bank for this game is up to over 480 million dollars. Now, with that kind of winnings possible, the chance of someone winning the game is very slim, but people are still buying tickets.

This is the largest drawing since Feb. of  last year. If you do not hit the Powerball number, you could still be a millionaire by hitting the other numbers. Most people would be happy to win a million dollars and not be upset that they did not win the 480 million. I know I certainly would be. The lottery knows that people are always dreaming of getting rich quick and that is why the games are so popular.

Gambling is also a huge business and this falls right into that scheme of things. For years, people have gambled on card games, dice games, lotteries, raffle drawings, etc. These are all ways that hard working …

Sunday Thoughts

Hello and good Sunday morning! Yesterday, I spent the day with my friends and we were planning to take a trip to Savannah, Georgia. I have been there but they have not and so we decided that we will take a trip this summer. This is a photo taken at Tybee Island when my oldest daughter and her boyfriend and I went last year. With the weather warmer yesterday and today here, I decided that with all the talk of the island and warmer temps, I could post this to #brightentheday.

 My Brighten the Day campaign began a few days ago and I have not been here to write about it since, but it is going well. the first two days, I decided to just pay random compliments to people and that worked well. I would be in line at the store or gas station and I would just compliment someone on their outfit, smile, hair, etc. It is amazing how you can make someone smile by just being nice.

Last night, my husband and I went to a local Waffle and Steak and has one of the worst experiences ever in a restaurant…

Brighter Days

With the month of February being known for love and romance, I have decided to start a new challenge to all my online friends and my family entitled #BrightenTheDay. I am going to post about it on Twitter and many other sites as well as here.

The goal of this is to do just what it says Brighten the day for someone. We all have bad days and we all have times that we really just wish we were doing something else, but I guarantee whatever you are feeling or going through, someone else is having it worse. The idea is to think of three ways that you could brighten someone's day and do it! Then share your success on social media. It will encourage others to do the same and it will add some kindness to the world.

I am hoping that as we read the way others' have done something for someone it will give us more ideas on ways that we can help. I have something in mind for today and I will be sharing it later. Remember that kindness goes a long way! My grandpa always said that you catch…
