Heavenly Sunlight

Walking in sunlight all of my journey;
Over the mountains, through the deep vale;
Jesus has said, "I'll never forsake thee,"
Promise divine that never can fail.

Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight,
Flooding my soul with glory divine:
Hallelujah, I am rejoicing,
Singing His praises, Jesus is mine.

Shadows around me, shadows above me,
Never conceal my Savior and Guide;
He is the Light, in Him is no darkness;
Ever I'm walking close to His side.

Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight,
Flooding my soul with glory divine:
Hallelujah, I am rejoicing,
Singing His praises, Jesus is mine.

I got up this morning thinking - oh yuck - another Monday! I wish I could stay home. My stomach hurt. My head hurt. You name it - I felt it this morning. I was moaning and groaning about having to go to work. I even grumbled about it being foggy again and tried to think of what Daddy always said about the fogs in August and the winter snows. Didn't we have a lot of fog last August? Is that why we had the horrible ice storm in January? Then I thought about how I was going to be late for work because I couldn't drive at my normal break-neck speed! By the time I got to the end of our road, I was fit to be tied just thinking about everything I had to get done today.

Then I looked behind me and this is what I saw.

Hello & Good Morning from God!! I felt like He had smacked me on the top of my head! I was being so ungrateful for the beautiful day that He had given me and for the blessing of being able to go to work at a job that I love. As I drove to work, I kept singing this song over and over in my mind. When I pulled into the parking lot I was singing out loud! I was even earlier than I thought and didn't have to drive fast! This has been one the best Mondays I have had in a long time. Yes - there were stressful moments but in my mind I kept singing His praises and knowing that Jesus is mine!

I'll try to remember this day when there is six inches of snow and ice everywhere in January.

Knock Knock! Guess who is back?

No – I have not totally fallen off the face of the earth. I’m just clinging to the edge!

School started here on August 6. That’s all I can say.

Work – home – work – home – and back to work. That’s all I have done for over a month.

Well - work and Facebook. Am I the only one that is addicted to Facebook? And FARKLE? Where has FARLKLE been all of my life?? I could sit and play it for hours. I even dozed off playing the other night while sitting up in my chair! FARKLE is like Yahtzee but the game is shorter and you play against your friends. I'm not to sure about how the chips work - I just enjoy playing the game - over and over again until I fall out of my chair!

I’m hoping to post a few things within the next week. I have new recipes I have tried lately that I can’t wait to share.I’ve also started on a few Christmas crafts. I know – Christmas is months away. I have to get started now to get everything finished that I plan to make.

Most important of all – our Jennie is getting to be such a big girl! Here are a few pictures from her birthday party on Saturday. I can’t believe that it has been two years since I first fell head over heals in love with this little sweetheart!

Thanks to everyone for emailing to check on me! I enjoyed hearing from you!
