"Welcome To My Blog"

Today is June 7, 2015, so much has happened in the years since my last update here. On February 28,2014 I suffered a Heart Attack. Probably one of scariest events of my life but deeply grateful that the Lord has spared me. So because of Him I am here today and able to give Him praise. We are enjoying the warm months of summer here in Georgia as we watch the spring like weather fade. I hope all are enjoying the blessings of our great God!

"In His Presence"

When we're facing life's complexities,
we must trust God for the things we need.
When the roads not clear, as we look ahead,
we shouldn't look down but above instead.
When we think our fears, have the best of us,
we can never give up, but in God should trust.
For none of us knows what the morrow may bring,
for just after winter comes the early spring.
Just as the moon sets the course of the tides,
all things are renewed in the course of time.
Even as the darkness will yield it's place to the light,
the troubles we know, in His presence turn to flight!

Romans 12: 11-12 "And that, knowing the time, that now is high time to awake out of our sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
