{ SONday Scriptures on Saturday }

(yes, I know it's Saturday, hence the post title.....
just couldn't wait to share Psalm 37 with y'all cause I'm thinking somebody else needs to hear this, too!)

Psalm 37 is a favorite of mine, and I love verse 4 that tells us to delight in the Lord and He will give us the desires of our heart.  I've seen that happen so many times lately in some of the smallest of things that my heart desires.  Often I don't think we even realize what our desires are.  Oh, we might think we want something, but since our Heavenly Father made us and knows us so much better than we know ourselves, if we'll just let Him take control He'll give give.....or take away.....things that are the best for us.

He's such a good, good Father!

HOPE everybody has an awesomely blessed SONday.....

and Saturday.....;-) !!!

{ Friday Foto Friends #38 }

Pappy and I had lunch at Micky D's Tuesday afternoon and this tree was right outside the window where we sat.  I thought it was was just so pretty and unique.

I think I accidentally got a bird flying over in this pic.   All day yesterday the sun would come out then dark  clouds would roll in then the hot sun again.  We finally got a much needed rain around 6:00 in the evening with more during the night.  Besides the rain, we also got some cooler temps.  Praise the Lord, cause this old lady doesn't do well with the heat we're experiencing this summer.  

Would love it if you'd link up with us today and share your photos.

HOPE everybody has a great weekend.

{ Keeping it clean }

Happy, Thursday, Friends.

I've got a somewhat different post for y'all today.....
a recommendation.

Several years ago I heard about cleaning cloths that you could get from having a "party".  Their cloths are very high $$$ and I really wanted some of them but I'm pretty cheap frugal about most things.  I've also learned that very often if we'll just wait that God will bless us with something even better.
(desires of our heart, right?)

ALDI is one of my very favorite places to shop and look what I found on a recent trip.....

Did you notice the price?  Four of these cleaning cloths for $3.99 which is a fraction of the cost of just one cloth from the other company.  My favorite thing about them is they require NO cleaning chemicals.  They can be used wet or dry.   

Each one has embroidered on the bottom what it's use is for and I've tried out 3 of them so far.  They've all been laundered and still look good as new.  

the one for glass.....

just dampened it and wiped down some of the windows and they worked great.

I can't tell you that these are the same quality as from the original company, but they're plenty good enough for me.  I also got our daughter a set.  She's going to use hers to designate certain chores for our grand-kiddos.  ;-)

If you'd like a set of these, head to your nearest ALDI.  I got these just last week, so hopefully they still have them in stock.  I'm so excited that we're fixing to get a brand new ALDI  closer to where we live......
(another desire of my heart.....;-)

HOPE y'all have a Terrific Thursday.

See you tomorrow for FFF.

{ Wednesday's Word - Politics }

With all the hoopla going on with the RNC and the DNC, I thought this was just perfect to bring some humor to the current political situation in our country.

{ Trivial Tuesday }

Just a bunch of trivial stuff that makes my heart happy and brings a smile to my face.....

I bought this little smiling sun at the Family Dollar for.....
a dollar.....
and stuck it in my CHRISTmas cactus.

My latest creation for our second grand-b0y who 's bison.

This hydrangea has always bloomed hot pink.
With the heat and lack of rain, it's kinda drying up on the bush but displaying such gorgeous colors on the bottom branches. Only God could create something so awesome.

and is cheaper than therapy.....LOL!

A photo I  took several years ago that still makes me smile when I see it  because it reminds me of a sweet day out with my man walking at Seven Islands.

Kinda funny,
but full of truth.

and, AMEN!

HOPE everybody has a Terrific Tuesday!

{ Let your light shine }

Remember many years ago when it became popular to have a flag pole with decorative flags flying from it?  Well, it might no longer be popular, but I still  my flags.  A few months ago I came across a great deal at Lowe's and bought three flags for less than one would normally cost.

This is the one flying from our front porch right now.....

Notice all the ways it gives we can let our light shine.....

Attitude, Smile, Celebrate, Happy, Kind, Courtesy, Gratitude, Compliment, LOVE, Sweet, Rejoice.....
to name a few!

Matthew 5:16
In the same way, 
let your good deeds shine out for all to see,
 so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

In some way, let's all go shine our light in this dark world, especially on a Monday.....
don't let Satan get the best of us!

HOPE you have an awesomely blessed day, Friends!

(p.s....happy, happy tenth birthday to the sweet, precious boy who first called me Nannie.....
love you with all my heart, Sam.....
I Samuel 1:27)
