KOOL! Getting it done!? How nice! Pray all goes well with your hubby and the retirement and all that is in that package of life! Really nice site and so very glad I dropped by! Thanks for sharing with me! I am so glad there are people like you around! There are a lot of Christians (people) who "fret and worry" over every little thing and to do so is also known as DOUBT and to be in doubt is not to have the faith that GOD gave unto us so therefore it is SIN! Wow! What a grabber huh!? Yes, GOD says that we are "full of seed". Pregnant is the word HE used for us. All we have to do is allow HIS word to come forth in us and we bring forth HIS children in us (HIS FRUITS) and we become more like HIM in all we do and say! You know the days are passing very fast as GOD said that the "time shall be shortened" in the last days, remember? Well we are there and the last days are upon us, so these days keep turning into weeks and weeks into months and years before we know it, they're gone again and soon there shall be no more as we know them! You know though if you stop and think about it and recall the pleasures of heaven and the peace it brings and all of the love and joy that abound in HIS presence, and if we are HIS child, then WHY should we fear it? Some people do fear the end! It should be the very greatest blessing to us! Something to be "looked forward" to with greatest excitement! Well, you stay safe and be blessed and I will pray all will be well with you always. In HIS love, Katie

Dear Mrs. Mac...I was just at my computer when I got your message on my blog and I was so glad to hear from you!
I am feeling a little down at the moment because my sister, Betty is in the hospital. She had a heart attack today and I am worried, even though I know I shouldn't be. The Lord is in control.
It was so nice to hear a friendly voice..You!!.at this time of the night. Thank you so much and give that little Nathan a hug for me.
Betty has a special needs child too. Really though he, Ryan fills a special need in our family!!
He is our treasure just as Nathan is yours!!
Thanks for listening Mrs.
Mac...Love Terry

I just put Betty's picture on my blog.She is 58 and I am 57.

Dear Mrs. Mac...Thank you so much for your encouraging words on my blog.
It is with so much confidence that you say God is on His throne and that He will be with Betty as she RECOVERS!!
I needed to read words like that and I am so grateful to you!...Love Terry

Per usual, I linked off your other page and my comment went into the blogesphere. What I said was...I don't remember now.
But ~ that place looks huge! Next time place an arrow by my room so I can plan how to decorate! :)

Mrs. Mac said...

BG ... you have to wait for your room to get framed ... The guest room is above the garage ... you'll have your own bath, of course! (lol)

Above the garage sounds lovely, and I'm so glad I'll have my own bath, I really don't want to have to share one with anyone...I'm doing that now!
