This weekend find joy in the little things of life!

I've been reading a wonderful little book entitled "Tell Your Heart To Beat Again"by Dutch Sheets; this book has been so incredibly uplifting, so if you have a chance to read it by all means do.
Chapter 4 deals with bearing one another's burden and Dutch has some wonderful analogies that I felt were applicable to all of us.
"The word for bearing up or staking ourselves next to another, so they don't fall-much as a person would tie a stake to a tomato plant to sustain it against the weight it carries. The strength of the stake is transferred to the plant and thus "bears it up". ...In other words, we're to come alongside a brother or sister who is weighed down and say,"You're not going to fall and be broken or destroyed, because I'm staking myself to you. My strength is now yours. Go ahead, lean on me. As long as I can stand, you will too. What a wonderful picture for the Body Of Christ".
So dear ones, do you have the strength to stand beside someone and let them lean on you?
Are you someone who desperately needs another to come along side you and help you to stand?
Let me know; what a privilege it is to lift you up before the Throne of the Most High God. I will stand beside you, lean on me.

This is a verse I came across this morning and it seemed so appropriate.
"I will extol Thee, my God, O King;
And I will bless Thy name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless Thee,
And I will praise Thy name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised;
And His greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall praise Thy works to another,
And shall declare Thy mighty acts." Psalm 145:1-4
May our lives radiate with a deep love and passion for our Lord and may we tell of Thy wondrous deeds to each generation.

Good morning friends, I am not one to advertise for commercial products but this is a commercial that airs here in Colorado and other destinations that Frontier flies into, but if you haven't seen this ad, it will bring a smile to your face. I love Gris the Bear! Every time I watch this I giggle, so I hope it will be a smile to you this morning. There are so few ads these days that are family friendly that I wanted to share a cute one.
Have a blessed day friends.

Pam of http://smilinggrammy.blogspot.com/and Marlene of http://barefootsoul.blogspot.com/ live about 40 minutes from me and although they are so much fun to spend time with, we don't have visits as much as I'd like. Maybe this summer we'll rectify that.
I hope you have a wonderful day, regardless of the weather. Learn to dance in the rain!

Doesn't this home just say welcome. It reminds me of homes we've seen on the coast of Maine.

This morning, in fact any minute now, our youngest daughter will be dropping off her oldest three daughters because they have a wedding to attend and will just take the baby along. Our day should be quite busy with all the activities of the under 6 set. I am hoping to get out this afternoon and walk 2-3 miles as I've been determined to make this a regular part of my day. Yesterday's weather was quite cold so I didn't get out but I may just have to bundle up and go for it.
I hope you are all enjoying good weather where you are-signs of spring are everywhere, birds are singing again...yippee!

The Heavens declare the glory of God.
This canyon was the sight where Jurassic Park was filmed.
I am thankful for God's people and their habitation.
Have a wonderful Thankful Thursday my friends.

In the coming days I'll be posting a few more photos; I can tell you that we had a fantastic time with our friends and my beloved got lots of golf in-which makes him so very happy.
Psalm 5:11 (King James Version) 11But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
Sunday Blessings dear friends, What a glorious day to be alive and to worship the King of Kings. Today I am so thankful for those friendships that have been formed through our bloggy world; something I think so many of us were surprised at the depth of relationships and the bonds that form without ever seeing someone face to face. Actually, I think getting to know someone heart to heart is better still, so today's post is dedicated to one very special friend whom I've come to know and love. Her blog is http://alleluiabelle.blogspot.com/ and Alleluiabelle is an incredible woman of God with such a deep faith that inspires many including me. I'd love to say I've been reading her for years but that wouldn't be true, but in the time I've followed her I've come to see a deep faith as she walks through the fire. I feel a deep kinship with Alle and so yesterday when she wrote a comment about never having been to the ocean before, it moved my heart. She asked that I twirl in the sand with outstretched arms in worship and I truly couldn't wait to do this little thing for her. I thought that seeing a visible reminder might uplift and encourage her this day....so this is what I did. Today I plan to get out and again spend time before our King lifting holy hands to heaven but yesterday I just wanted some photos for her.
As I threw the sand in the air Alle, I prayed that each grain of sand would represent the weight on your shoulders right now, the trials you are walking though and they would just be lifted off of you. I wish you could be here with me, what fun we'd have and the time together before the Lord would be incredible; but know that many and I mean many, are lifting you and yours up today before our King.
On a side note my friends, it is still winter at home and I had no idea that my Capri's, that were so fashionable several years ago, would look so out of date this year~especially when you had a bit more fluff than you should so I won't be wearing these again. Have a blessed day dear ones. Hugs, Noreen

The beauty of the Islands is incredible and I do understand why people would relocate here to live. My sweet hubby would be one of them, if we could. However, with only one main road going from one end to the other, traffic can become an issue. Yesterday there was a minor accident that brought traffic to a standstill and we sat for about 20 minutes. I'm just thankful we are able to relax and not worry about being late for anything. Our weather has been wonderful and perfect for a being out and about. Today looks like more of the same....yippee!

And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb
And they entered in and found not the body of the Lord Jesus
And it came to pass as they were much perplexed about this, behold two men stood by them in shining garments,
And as they were afraid and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them 'Why seek ye the Living amoung the dead?
He is not here but is risen, remember how He spake unto you when He was yet in Galilee, saying 'The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified and the third day rise again'
And they remembered His words." Luke 24:1-8
Last night a favorite song came to mind that I haven't sung in awhile-Thank You for the Cross and now this morning one of the songs I've taught my grandchildren is floating around in my head; as the children's song says:
He's Not Dead, No
He is Alive
He's Living Inside of Me.
He Is Risen!
May you know the power and love of a living Savior this Easter and every day of your life. On this the most holy season in the life of a believer, may you come into a more profound and deeper relationship with Him than ever before.
Because He first loved us,

I am thankful that the swelling in my ankles went down after our very long plane flight.
I am thankful that although I am currently battling sciatica I have suffered with this before and know the things that help ease the pain somewhat.
I am thankful that if this is the worst thing that can limit my activity level, I know it will pass.
I am thankful for our newest granddaughter and that she is settling in at home.
I am thankful that the weather here is limiting some activities which probably wouldn't be the best for me to do with my back acting up.
I am thankful for computers and that I can stay in touch with all my buddies online.
Have a blessed day dear ones.
