Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Consider yourself invited to the 2013 Ultimate Blog Party happening April 5th through 12th hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom!

This is the beach that you see adorning my spot here on the internet!
Moonstone Beach, Rhode Island. 
Welcome Old Friends and New!

Would you like a cocktail, mock-tail or cup of steamy hot brew?
Either way, make yourself at home…and if I forget to give you that drink, I hope you will feel comfortable enough to help yourself. Because friend, that is how it really is when you visit my home!  I get so busy talking I forget to get our beverages.
So don’t be shy!


Make yourself at home, and be sure and sign my guestbook by leaving a comment!


Well, let’s see…here’s a few things to get the party started:
I like to live as a local tourist and I especially enjoy living along the beautiful coast of scenic Rhode Island! I usually try to get out and capture the beauty right here in our little state, then share it here in my bloggy space.

I began blogging in May of 2011, and am blessed by the unanticipated journey and unexpected surprises that have come out of it.

Last year was the first year I participated in the Ultimate Blog Party  and I really enjoyed connecting with fellow bloggers and making some new friends!

Everything else you want to know about me- or not know is all over this blog!


The family: We are a silly threesome.

Living in the "Yes" of Easter (Monday and Beyond)

I curled up with my Bible Easter Sunday Morning, with the intent to get back on track with my Bible reading plan. I had veered off course about mid March, and after accepting a very dear friend’s advice, to pick up from where I am today without trying to catch up, I opened up my favorite book trusting God to meet me and get me back on track without obsessing about the days missed (which the same friend reminded me I have read these books before AND I could go back and read when time allows currently). As I read through Song of Solomon (not a personal favorite) and Numbers…I’m partial to the Old Testament for sure but Leviticus and Numbers…well, let’s say ALL of God’s Word is beneficial, so I chomp on through it and trust that it does this body and soul good. I read on into Matthew. But this morning’s additional verse for me in my Writing to God venture leads me head long into one serendipitous moment. 
 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

2 Corinthians 1:20-22
Praise the God of Yes, in Jesus!
This was a perfect Easter morning kiss for me.
Have you ever felt kissed on the head by your Heavenly Father?
I pray many kisses are bestowed upon you from your Heavenly Father, in the form of precious gems of truth from His Holy Word. 

I watched the conclusion of The Bible TV Series this Sunday night.
I reserved my comments until watching the complete series. First I want to say I enjoyed and looked forward each Sunday to watching this epic offering from History Channel and…Hollywood. That being said I did notice many flaws, yet was able to enjoy it. I read a number of views on this and I just want to say brethren, please…”stop dragging my heart around.” I. Liked. It. It was imperfect. As is your view. Let’s move on and thank God that we can even have the freedom to see, such a program on the telly at this point in time. God is not limited by Hollywood productions, History Channel, Bible Translations, translators or  even you and me. Oh, ye of little faith…
This week I got to speak on the phone to my West Coast BFF, Sara! 
We have a special love for Palm and Easter Sunday because many moons ago, God did a major miracle in both our lives during that week. He brought us to life in Christ! That is a story worthy of it’s own post. Coming soon…Meanwhile, I miss her since her move from the East but am so grateful for our connection in Him.Proverbs 17:17 says a friend loves at all times…grateful for a handful of sisters who really embrace this verse, and me. Cally is calling…

I caught Spring trying to bud it’s way in…


So I bent low and captured it! 


I started this Book Study at Renee’s Place – it’s not too late to join in!
Can you believe we are celebrating ONE YEAR
of Random Journal Day this month?
So come join in and LINK UP with your journal!

Ultimate Blog Party Invite & Welcome

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Hello and welcome to my little corner here in the Blogosphere:

Since my whole Blog really says enough about ME,
how about we talk about you?

But for the sake of cordiality I will give you the lowdown:

I have been blogging for under a year. My Blogging anniversary is coming up in May.

My favorite color is orange.

I love ROCKS, stones, pebbles.

I am married to one excellent cook and patient man, who happens to be my best friend.

I am mom to an 11 year old girl who actually knows EVERYTHING.

My profession has been Personal Training since 1985.

I write poetry…at least I think I do.

I love books and secretly have always wanted to be a librarian.

We have within our home: Two cats, One dog and a bunny

I blog about love, life, faith and my imperfect life.

I share my short stories, book reviews, poetry, random thoughts and musings
with authenticity, grace and truth.

I consider myself a Rebel Christian Chick.

I rarely mince words, but I do like to dice, saute, shred, season and dish them out. 

I like to live life like a local tourist…and do. I have the pictures to prove it!
