Charlie’s Bakery

While out yesterday, it was recommended that we stop at Charlie’s Bakery…


The picture doesn’t do it justice – I do believe that was the biggest long john pastry we’ve seen.

It was a tough decision, folks, but choices were finally made…

Today – one last trip to the Plaza before heading back east tomorrow morning! 

This Past Sunday

We sure did enjoy hearing our son-in-law preach this past Sunday…

What a blessing to witness one being baptized as well!

I sure do appreciate this dear sister and the blessing she is to her church. I know her faithfulness has been an encouragement – it encourages me each time we are able to be here!

I’m thankful for the time we’ve been able to spend with our family! We’re heading to a campground now for a picnic lunch. Looking forward to making some fun memories with our GRANDS. ❤️


“Difficulty is the very atmosphere of miracle – it is a miracle in its first stage. If it is to be a great miracle, the condition is not difficulty but impossibility.” ~ (taken from Streams in the Desert)

I’m so very thankful that, no matter how impossible a situation may appear to our human eyes and understanding, we can and must remember to compare the situation to God. 

“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.” Mark 10:27

We Are As Close To God As We Want To Be

“Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” II Timothy 2:19

The devotional below, from Spurgeon’s Morning & Evening, reminded me of the above verse I read this morning. As Christian’s, it’s our decision whether or not we will depart from iniquity and thus live a victorious Christian life. Truly, we are as close to God as we want to be.

Overheard In An Orchard

This little poem was in the girls’ devotional book – “Streams in the Desert” – for yesterday. I thought it was a great reminder!

Overheard in an Orchard

Said the Robin to the Sparrow: “I should really like to know – why these anxious human beings rush about and worry so.”

Said the Sparrow to the Robin: “Friend, I think that it must be – that they have no Heavenly Father such as cares for you and me.”

~ Elizabeth Cheney

Greetings from…

Fort Smith, Arkansas! After leaving around 4:45 yesterday morning, we called it a day around 8:00 last evening. That’s right, folks – we are heading west and, Lord willing, will arrive sometime this evening.

I’m getting pretty excited, to say the least. 😉 It was Christmas when we last saw our daughter and family and there’s a lot of GRANDbabies – including a new one born in May – that are needing a hug from this Nanna (or is that the other way around?)❤️

Prayers for safety would be greatly appreciated!!
