Spiritual Sundays

Hello friends! Welcome to Spiritual Sundays hosted by Charlotte and Ginger. Please click here to visit these charming ladies and their Spiritual Sundays participants.


God requires the obedience of His followers, and Jesus placed great importance upon it. When we are obedient, we show God that we love Him and have more faith in Him than we do ourselves.

Oswald Chambers wrote: "The Lord does not give me rules, but He makes His standard very clear. If my relationship to Him is that of love, I will do what He says....If I hesitate, it is because I love someone I have placed in competition with Him, namely, myself."

"This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments." - 1 John 5:3

Thank you for stopping by. My son and his family are home for two weeks so this will be my last Spiritual Sunday post for a couple of weeks. I pray that you all have a lovely and blessed weekend.

Pink Saturday

Hello pinkie friends and welcome to my Pink Saturday post. As always, we want to thank our lovely hostess Beverly for hosting this fun event every week.

This has been an incredibly busy week getting ready for my company. Nothing like company coming to get the house cleaned up and the junk cleared out. Hubby has been teasing me all week about the number of boxes I had saved 'just in case I need them.'
Today I would like to share something a little different. It is all pink and it's all leading up to an exciting announcement..... Talk about Christmas in July!

One can't have a party without pink balloons, can one?

Pink roses, is there any other colour that bespeaks romance and femininity as well?
OK, slip on your best pink bracelet.Pink diamonds are precious but there are some things in this world more precious than diamonds!

There are some gifts so sweet they don't require a bow!
Isn't this pink baby bonnet just darling? Pink, ribbon, and lace, how sweet is that?
This frothy and sequined little pink baby's dress is adorable, isn't it?
Love these little pink lacey-frilled socks! I've always wanted to buy one of these headbands!Well, after having three precious baby boys myself, who I wouldn't trade for anything in the world by the way, and then being blessed with four sweet little grandsons, I had pretty much given up on ever having a granddaughter.... Then lo and behold, this past week, my middle son and his wife, who flew in at 1:30 AM this morning, with my little not quite two year old grandson, had it confirmed that their baby on the way is indeed a girl! I am so excited! After almost thirty-six years of buying blue, I get to buy pink!!

I am going to get a little pink princess for Christmas! What wonderful news, and all in time for Christmas in July!

I am going to have some pink lemonade and celebrate!

Would you like to join me?

Here's to GIRL POWER or should I say PINK POWER!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone! Be sure to visit all the pinkies lined up at Beverly's!
I wish you all a very pink weekend.
