You Make Me So Happy


Hi everybody, I'm feeling so overwhelmed by happiness today as I did yesterday. I was wondering why, and aside from being alive and loved by a magnificent God and my family, it has to be you. Some of you may not know but, I'm a stay at home mom, the definition of homebody; and I have a mouth that is non stop. I love to talk, but mostly all of my family and friends are working during the day, so it has been such a pleasure to meet you guys and visit your homes, your lives, and dreams. I want to tell you that you have all made me feel so welcome on my visits and I welcome you as well, as you visit with me. You know God is so good He always has a scripture pertaining to all things in life and I would like to share this one with you.
It's 1Peter 4:9-11, and it reads..."Use hospitality one to another without grudging. As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen

Oh can relate with being home with the kids and friends and family off to work...I love being with my kids but it does get lonely sometimes. Blogging has been a great outlet.
:) I always feel welcome coming over to your space!! And I love hearing from you also.
Have a great day my friend!

Hey, gf! You just made me realize I probably should have posted the deck and view. Good idea! I love what you had to say this morning. I guess that's why I feel such a connection to you. Enjoy your day!

Beautiful post Deb...I am a firm believer in faith....I too was a stay at home mom with my 5 sweet babies (now 28-38yrs old) My better half, Bill has always thought a woman was to be cherished and taken care of..he will be the first to tell you that staying home and raising kids is a full time job and any man worth his salt will appreciate that and do all he can to provide for his family but he also realizes that in these days..it takes all two people can do to raise a family but he believes it should be a woman's choice to work..He is such a Rhett Butler..Randoff Scott kind of man! lol I love coming to your blog girl..you always make everyone feel right at home...hope you continue to have beautiful happy days my friend!!!!!

Hi Deb... Beautiful post.

I left a message for you the other night, asking if you'd contact me. Anyway, I see it's gone. I just wanted to let you know that I'd seen what you'd said to LeAnn about her new banner and how you wished I would make a new one for you. Sooo... I did make a new one for you, Deb, actually I made 4 for you... and I just had wanted to give them to you. I ask forgiveness if I offended you with my previous post, for that surely was not my intent. I'm sorry.

God bless. Pearl.

Thank you so much for sharing that scripture today! You're right, God always has a word for our every circumstance, doesn't He? I'm so thankful for that.

Blessings,
Lea

Hi Deb...
Just got your message... thank you, kindly. If you wouldn't mind, could you email me w/your email address, please? I didn't see your address on your blog side-bar. Via email is how I would deliver the new banners. If you'd like, I'd be more than happy to assist you with instructions on how to set things up for use. Just let me know. Crazy Blog ~ I typed and tried to send a message to LeAnn last night three different times and it looks like none of them posted... very frustrating. I shall look forward to hearing from you and we can get this mix-up fixed!

God bless. Pearl.

Wonderful post, Deb! I was a stay at home mom, too. In those days (1960's early 70's), most of my neighbors were stay at home moms. We could get together for coffee or just talk over the backyard fence. In this day and age, the internet seems to be the backyard fence!

I'm so happy we've met. I enjoy coming here.
Pat

PS...your blue bathroom is beautiful!

Oh, I wish you were closer. I was just looking for a coffee buddy this afternoon and no one was available. :)
