Wednesday morning,and 8 more days till Christmas Day.....

Good morning dear friends, hope everyone is well. We are all o.k at our house!
Thank the Lord for our many blessings.
Not much news to tell here ,but it is cold today,guess we will stay inside a lot! Since we are giving photos for Christmas gifts to our children, and grandchildren this year there's not much wrapping of gifts to do. I have just been trying to put them in frames for everyone. I used to fix bags of fruit ,nuts, and candy, for all the kids, I still may do that! I know when I was a child I always looked forward to my Christmas stocking,filled with all those goodies. We always did that ,for our little ones too. Of course then ,we all figured Santa came and filled them (smile). Guess, today I'll start thinking about what to cook for Christmas dinner,for when the kids all stop by. Some of them fix dinner at their house for all their kids , but I'm sure they will come by later to eat some of Mom's cooking. Also,all the grandchildren, know that Granny and Grandad will be waiting for all those hugs. Tis the Season, so everyone, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Love to all, God loves you too....Blessings,Katie

Friday, December 5, 2008

~Well,yes it's Friday again......

Hello, dear friends,hope everyone is well, and staying warm.
It is cold here to day, nice sunshine, but the wind is cold.
It's 20 days until Christmas! I have done some decorations,
but still have not put my tree up,I think I'll put a small tree up
this year. We don't have a lot of space for our big one.
My husband and I, went to have our pictures made for Christmas,
To give for gifts, to our children, and grandchildren this year.
It had been awhile since we had studio photos made.
So we decided now would be a good time to have that done!
I think they will all like them. We wish you all a very Merry
Christmas, and a Happy new year.

Blessings to all.....

Love ,Katie

We all have so much to be thankful for. Now Christmas is on its way. I think I will start getting our Christmas decorations out to display.

I may go in before then., but I like to wait as long as I can.
I love comments from all you dear friends,sure makes me wish I could meet you in person sometime. I know I'm not to good on getting back to everyone with comments, on their blogs.

~Sunday night~Prayers needed


Hello dear friends, I pray all is well at your house . We went to church this morning, and came back home. Our daughter, Shelley and her family came to visit. We had a good lunch. I had cooked some turnip greens, and purple hull peas also made corn bread. The kids enjoyed Chili Dogs!
We made a trip to Alabama last weekend, our granddaughter,Lori had to have surgery on Nov. the 10th. We thought she was doing OK so we came on home,but the next day she started running a fever. They decided she had a infection,and started treating her with antibiotics,which helped some,but the fever was still there so they wanted to go back for another surgery to find the problem. Our other granddaughter that is with her there , decided to transfer her to Mobile Ala., for a second opinion.
That is where she is now, and they are still treating her with strong antibiotics. We are all praying,and the church is also sending up prayers too, that she will get well soon so she can get back home with her children and grandchildren. PLEASE PRAY WITH US DEAR FRIENDS
that she will get well soon. That her infection will be gone, and she will get to go home soon.
God bless you all!

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

~Sunday Evening~


Well,we went to church this morning and three of our grandchildren came . We were so happy to see them there! We stopped byour sons house after church. He cooked hamburgers, and fries out on the grill. We stayed and enjoyed lunch with them. We have been having some nice weather, very good after, having hurricane Ike, blow thru here last week. We had a lot of damage with blown down trees, up rooted ect. in our front yard, and no electricity for about five days. But,even with all that,I feel very thankful that our house was OK and no one was hurt.I pray for those people on the coast line and all around there. They lost so much, but their lives were spared. I'm sure they must be very thankful, just to be alive. It was a powerful storm.
I pray everything is well at your homes.
God bless you all.

MON. Night 8-4-08

Hope everyone is well. It has been another hot day. But we thank our dear Lord. for our AC ,
Keeps us cool in side. We are doing ok, staying in side alot. Our grandaughter that is visiting from Ark. had a seizure, Her dad called 911 and took her to the hospital. We stayed up there until about 200 am in the morning., and brought her home. She has been resting good to day, and back on her medication. She had forgotten to take it. I think she will be ok now. But it sure scared me . Her seizures are usually mild, Im told. but very scarey, as I didnt really know what to expect, or do for her, except keep her comfortable,, on her side,and console her. We just kept telling her we loved her, and prayed until help arrived. But thank God she is doing ok now.
Please remember us in your prayers. God bless you all . Love , Katie

Hi there dear friends, hope this finds every one well.
We had a hurricane to blow in on the coast line , but we didn't feel much wind from it.
A few showers, that was really needed, and the air just a little bit cooler, but down on the coast it was quite furious I hear.We put our flea market things out for a few days , for a yard sale, but really didn't do good at all. It was so hot out , then too I guess everyone is like us, any extra money we need to save for gas. The weekend is almost here , have a good one, take care, stay cool and enjoy .

~When I saw only one set of footprints, it was then he carried me~

Hello Dear Friends, I'm thanking my dear Lord for sparing my life. I woke up Tues. morning with a terrible headache, flushed, and dizzy . I took my blood pressure and found that I had a very low blood pressure and my pulse was 30. My husband took me to the ER in Rusk. They started getting me ready to be air lifted to Tyler at Mother Francis hospital .
I had surgery and they put a pace maker and defibrillator in my chest. I came home today I'm feeling very well, except for the soreness in my incision .

I prayed a lot about this before when the doctor wanted me to do this,and I believe that's what God wanted me to do.

Prayers please, and blessings to all love, Katie

Friday, February 29, 2008

~A new month is on the way~

Hello Dear friends, well it is true. Feb is almost gone , and March will be making it's entrance soon. Today I went out , and pulled a few weeds from one of my flower beds . My husband and son brought me a wheelbarrow full of good soil , to go in some big pots, to plant my tomato seeds and sweet pepper seeds. So I can grow some plants, to transplant to the garden, later.

It won't be long until time for that. I'm not to good for long anymore in pulling weeds , from the flower beds. My back want hold up long, and I can't get down on my knees anymore. But, anyway I still like to try.

We had some stormy weather late this evening, but most of it passed northeast of here.
We had some thunder and lightening, and some rain , but it didnt last long.
I pray you all have a great weekend, Blessings to all ,

Love Katie

Hello Dear Friends, I pray that you all had a wonderful day. I sure did! I went with my grandaughter, and some of the children to New Faith Church in Sacul Texas.

Had a good service, and a blessing for sure. My husband didn't go to day so he stayed home and when we got home he had put the big pot of home made soup, (that I made yesterday) , on to heat . So, thats what we had for lunch.

We sit out side this evening, and enjoyed the warm sunshine, it is so peaceful to do that to visit, and just watch the children run and play. I have been known to sit out in my swing in the yard along , sometime and sing , meditate, or talk to the Lord.

Thank you all dear friends, for the comments, I know I'm slow to respond sometime, but I do enjoy hearing from everyone.

God bless you all ,Katie

~Sunday Night~

Hello friends, I pray everyone had a wonderful weekend. First I want say thank you to Karen for my nice awards ,and the valentine is so pretty. We went to church this morning .

Enjoyed the Sermon. Came home and fixed sloppy Joe sandwiches with chips, and chili beans. My husband and I, with our son and his girlfriend, watched the Nascar races the Daytona 500.

I watched awhile, but was up and down alot,with some of the little grandkids ( smile).

Hope you all have a nice week ahead. We had some rainy, stormy weather last night , but it was nice today.
I'm scared of storms,when I was a little girl . . I remember going to the cellar, alot cause my Mom was scared of storms too. We dont have one now ,but I sometime wish we did.


Blessings to all, Katie
