St. Patty’s Day Stroll

It’s such a beautiful day! The pets loved it, too. 🙂 Daisy and I took two long strolls around the neighborhood. We enjoyed the sun, the fresh air, and the signs of Spring. The featured picture is one that I took around the corner from our house. It was just so invigorating to be outside! I’m grateful for a day to recharge, but also to get some things done that I needed to. Praise Jesus! ❤


The Joy Dare – Three Gifts White

Today I was able to jump back into my Joy Dare challenge! The challenge today was to find Three Gifts White. While it snowed today, and it was very beautiful, I couldn’t bring myself to list that as one of the gifts, lol! It’s been a long winter. However, it was a gift for our dog Daisy, who romped around in it like nobody’s business. If I get time, I will post some of the pictures that I took of her. 😀

  1. A Gate – We needed a gate for our dog and cat (Daisy and Misty), to keep Daisy out of Misty’s litter box (ick!) towards the back of the house. My Mom and Dad helped out a lot when we first got Daisy less than a year ago, and purchasing this gate for us was one of the things that they did. 🙂
  2. A Washer – When the washer that came with our house died some time ago, we were at a loss for what to do. Roy’s Mom and Dad came to the rescue! They helped us pick out and purchase (as well as install) a new washer for us. We were so grateful! It was something we used constantly, and being able to purchase a new one meant that we didn’t have to go to a laundromat.
  3. A Candle Topper – I forget what the occasion was, but Roy’s parents also got us a cute candle topper for us to use with our candles. We had never tried such a thing before, and now that we have, we really like it. The design is so pretty, too! It may seem like a small thing, but sometimes it’s the little things that really make you smile. Thanks, Mom and Dad! ❤

It wasn’t difficult to find Three Gifts White today. Actually, there were more gifts that could have been chronicled. But for these three specifically, I give thanks. God is good!

In the Moment

I’m sipping on my iced coffee.

I feel it spiraling down into my stomach.

It tastes good. 🙂


I hear the dryer tossing our clothes.

Revolutions 8

My husband is getting ready in the bathroom.

He’s listening to a sermon on his iPad.


He’s in my life, encouraging me, reassuring me.


I’m closing my eyes.

I’m being in the moment.

I’m thinking positive thoughts!


I’m going to see my family soon.

Everything is going to be okay.

The pets are content on the couch.


I’m looking out of the window at our backyard.

It’s going to be a good year.

God is on my side!
