Spiritual Sundays

Hello and welcome to Spiritual Sundays where you get to meet some really nice people. We all have one thing in common; we love Jesus and have chosen to walk with Him. Charlotte and Ginger are the hostesses for this special event and I want to say a hearty "Thank you" to both of you ladies.

As I was pondering what to share with you today, the scripture verse from Philippians 4:8 kept coming to my mind.
"Finally brethren, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things."
I have many favourite verses in the Bible but this one pretty much tops the list!
Life sometimes comes at you with a vengeance. Sometimes it's not easy to keep a smile on your face, or a positive attitude, when faced with adversity.
But when the chips are down, I find if I keep my mind on all the attributes listed in Philippians 4:8, it is easier to keep a positive attitude. Where there is faith in God, there is hope! The two go together.

When I began my walk with the Lord, I came to Him empty-handed. I had nothing to give Him but myself, which wasn't much! I was lonely and lost!
But the trade off was incredible and literally, out of this world!
He gave me a new heart and a new life! He gave me so many wonderful things like; love, joy, peace, companionship, a great big family, and a mansion at the end of my journey here on earth. He gave me the assurance that He would never leave me nor forsake me.
He has also blessed me with a loving husband who happens to be my best friend, three of the most adorable sons that any mother could hope for, two wonderful daughters-in-law, and four darling grandsons. Yes, even on my worst day, I can tell you, I am blessed! That's my story today; what's yours?
Blessed Assurance
"Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour, all the day long.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour, all the day long."
-Fanny Crosby {1820-1915}

Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday ~

It is the middle of March already, can you believe it? Another Pink Saturday has rolled around and we get another chance to show off our pinks. Beverly, at "How Sweet the Sound," is our hostess, and I thank her for inviting us all to participate yet another week. Be sure to stop in and visit Beverly, and all the other pinkies today by clicking on this link.
Today, I have three pinks to show you ~

A pink key holder which was a gift from my son many years ago.
A cherub mirror which holds a pink votive candle. I have two of these mirrors.On the bed, I have two pink Martha Stewart cushions. They are reversible as you can see; one side is a satin stripe and the other side is just a little bit different pattern. There are also pink roses sprinkled all over the bedspread, curtains, canopy, and accessories. I'm getting ready for Summer!
The picture above is the true colour of the bedding.
Well, Pinkies, those are my contributions for today. Have a wonderful pink day everyone!
