♪♫ ♪♫♪♫ It's a rainy day in Georgia!♪♫ ♪♫♪♫
And, we may have some flooding!
I hope my basement doesn't flood!
It is a busy day for me!
Laundry, housework, clipping & organizing coupons,
& trying to stay awake in this rainy weather!
We got up at 4 am!
I might need a power nap this afternoon!
Well, I guess I'd better get busy!
Have a fantabulous day!
And maybe we should try

Christmas 2012

I haven't talked about our Christmas yet!
I started off the new year talking about my personal goals!
So, now let me tell you about Christmas!
Sunday, Dec. 23rd., we went to church at our home church, Calvary Baptist in Smyrna!
Our pastor spoke on "The Value, Benefit & Joy of Joy!"
It was a very encouraging message on true joy.
Joy is not happiness!
Happiness is based on outer circumstances ( things that happen in life).
Joy is based on inner circumstance (invisible; a relationship with God).
On Christmas Eve, we had  our annual family Christmas party at our home!
This year, we had new family in attendance; Amelia of course, and Erin's aunt Pam & uncle Johnny!
One of my brothers & his family were not able to attend. We missed them!
Then on Christmas morning, we went to Eric & Erin's house for brunch & to see Amelia open presents!
She loved tearing the paper!
We had a lovely brunch with them & with Pam & Johnny.
It was so much fun to spend time with family & enjoy Amelia's first Christmas!
She also enjoyed touching the tree & looking at the lights!
We are amazed at what a miracle she is!
God has truly blessed us with this precious child!
She is doing so well!
We are thankful to God for this little miracle!
I hope all of my friends had a wonderful Christmas too!

Psalm 121:1-2
"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth."

So far the year is starting off very productively! The laundry is started, the store's bookeeping for today is done, dinner is in the crockpot (Creamy Ham & Potato Soup), and the Christmas decorations are beginning to come down! I am thankful to God for giving me physical strength to do my work and wisdom to know when to rest my arthritic knees!
I'm not one to make resolutions, but I have a few personal goals in mind for the new year!
I want to be diligent in my morning quiet time!
My days run much smoother when I spend time with the Lord each morning!
I want to be more organized in my home & every aspect of my life!
I want to record in my journal daily!
I missed recording a lot of important life events over the last few years!
I want to learn more about blogging, so that I can begin to make money doing it!
I want to eat healthier & exercise regularly!
And I want to spend more time with my family!
Yesterday, I got to babysit Amelia for Eric & Erin to have a little date time!
That little miracle is so precious!
She is growing more & more each day!
And you know that I must post a pic!
