Good by 2019

Can you believe 2019 is ending and a new decade is beginning? I think way back to 2010 and it's a blur. The decade brought many changes in our lives some of which include youngest daughter diagnosed and beating cancer, graduating all my girls from homeschool, experiencing a very difficult church split, losing my father-in-law to Alzheimer's and the biggest was moving to AZ and buying our own home.
Today I celebrated my 59th birthday. When I was in my 20s I couldn't imagine being this old!
2019 flew by so quickly.  I have no idea what 2020 has in store and I'm looking forward to how the Lord is going to use our family. Lord willing, I will be posting my yearly goals list.
 I hope you all have a safe New Year's Eve.

Hello Dear Ones

I trust you had a nice Christmas with family and friends.  We enjoyed time with our oldest daughter who came from CA. We were so happy to see her and was sad when she had to leave.

 I shared a few posts ago our church is going through the book of Luke. We are only on chapter 2 but so far it's been a really good study. The more I read about Jesus, the more I'm so thankful He came. Yes it's true He was not born on December 25th but for me it doesn't matter. The fact of the matter is He came. He died. He rose. And He's coming again! Hallelujah!

I have a heart for the lost souls out there. For many of them Christmas is the only time they may attend church,hear the gospel and perhaps ponder in their hearts what they heard.

My pastor has this saying that I hope to get right. If they come once, they may come twice. If they come twice they may come a third time and in that process they just might meet Jesus. I discovered that to be true with members in my own church.

We are starting a new year on Wednesday.  Let's strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Share our faith with someone who needs encouraging. Invite them to church. If they need a ride offer to give them a ride.
Have a blessed rest of your day!

Thank You and Merry Christmas

Thank you all for your comments and prayers. My back is better and I'm being more careful with the step stool and asking my family members to get things off higher shelves for me.

As we all gather today to remember Jesus coming as a baby let us remember why He came.  He healed the sick. He raised the dead. He came taught about the kingdom of God and died for our sin so we can have everlasting life.
Remember my post from awhile back "Who is Jesus?"? There are people who still don't know Jesus. Let us not leave Him in the manger. Let us praise and thank Him everyday! Thank Him for the empty tomb. He's coming back! Hallelujah! Merry Christmas! And He is Risen!
 P.S. Blogger made changes and I had to figure out how to write a new post.  Took me a few minutes but I finally figured it out.

I had in mind what I was going to post. Actually I had a a few things on my mind I was going to write about.
Then Monday evening I fell off the step stool right against our kitchen wood block island.☹
I went to hospital yesterday and x-rays were done and I have nothing broken but oh how I hurt!

I was prescribed all these pain medications that look like horse pills. I got frustrated at the ER because I had different staff coming in at various times asking the same question "How did you fall?" "Did you get dizzy?" "Have you fallen in the past six months?"
I was so relieved to be out of there but I will say my medical team members were very sweet to me and Tim. I really can't fault them for being concerned.

So here are pictures of the culprits my fall:
                         Culprit number 1- The menacing step ladder. I missed that bottom step because I didn't hold on to the handle while stepping down.

                                         Culprit number 2- The kitchen island that I fell against and actually probably saved my life because I could have hit my head on the floor.

So that's why I haven't posted sooner. 
So I hope to have a post in the next couple of days. Please keep me in your prayers. I don't like pain!
