The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 26, if only with the twinkle of my nose 😉🙏🏻

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “container.”

Getting ready to move! Disclaimer I don’t believe in magic, but if I did I wish for all of my belongings to be a twinkle of my nose into a container. How nice would that be. We just helped my son move, and I over did it. I took a week to get back to feeling a little better. Now it is time to get our house all packed! With a twitch of my nose, no! With the support of my family/friends, and God as my strength we will make this move yet! He always carries us through, so here we go readying for our move

Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. 1 Chronicles 16:11

One-liner Wednesday September 16, She may have no recollection you came that day, but she knows how very much you love her, Alzheimer’s stare…

“I want to tell you how much I miss my mother. Bits of her are still there. I miss her most when I’m sitting across from her.”

My beautiful mother-in-law-, she is deteriorating by the day. We just keep on showing up, and loving her because we get to do the next right thing. Be present! We all have one common bound we all just want to be loved!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 11, 2020; collar: Collared in God’s love…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “collar.” Use it as a verb, a noun, or metaphorically. Bonus points for using it in all three ways! Enjoy!

Collared in God’s love. For years I was on the run. Enraptured by grace I stopped long enough to see His face.

The collar around my neck finally loosened with His grace. I was panting for my run was so long, and hardcore. I was no longer bound by my own noose. I called a truce.

I was finally caught at the cross, and he leashed my heart. Lassoed it, with the bond of his mercy so great. I knew I was free, I was able to put my old scraggly running shoes in the garbage. The soles were worn through to my barren feet blistered, and calloused. No more malice, or insanity as I prayed for God to free my heart. Collared in God’s love.

1. What is your favorite movie?

I love so many movies this the hardest question for me to answer. I love too many for so many a reason. Lots of 80’s flicks, and a few great ones recently released.

2. Do you like Universal, or Disney better?

Oddly enough I worked for both in Orlando Florida. So I was a guest, as well apart of the crew. This is hard they both are so very different. I will have to say Disney though. I love all 4 parks, and Magic Kingdom really is magical.

3. Are you a total bookworm like me?

I love to read, I have many a favorite author. I mostly read Christian authors. I would not say I have my nose in a book all the time though.

I am can be crazy fun, and I can be a 10 depending who I am with, and where I am.

I would wish my children all the happiness in the world, and pray they all find a relationship with Jesus Christ.

6. Do you like roller coasters?

Not a huge roller coaster fan, I like rides. I can handle indoor coasters better than outdoor.

7. How many countries have you been to?

Sadly one, and that being it is on the Washington State boarder it would be lame if I could say I had never been to Canada.

I have put a record on a record player does that count 😂

Yep sure can, I love that word!

It is all by Grace of God I get to be here, doing something I love

Thank you to all of you who have reached out to me in here. Those of you who have liked, read, commented, and even followed me in here. I love being able to express myself daily through this outlet. I get to grow, and learn from all of your experiences. It is so appealing to see all the great reads, and all the photography.

I am excited at the response I have gotten in such a short amount of time. I did have a blog inside of here under (Plucked from the decomposing garden of what was my life). This was about 3 years ago, and I was gaining quite the following. Coming back in I wanted to open myself up to be able to write more on other things, and not be so stuck in a niche. That is where came in. It allows me that freedom.

I had some health struggles that took me away from here. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, that resulted in a double mastectomy. So I am so blessed to be back, and even being connected with some old friends. I have especially all the new ones, there are amazingly gifted people in here!

So here I sit humbled by the response I have received, and I say thank you very much! I am more than grateful for all who I have connected with, and all the beautiful bloggers in here! Keep on keeping on! Blessings Lisa

1 Corinthians 15:10
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them–yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.
