September 6, 2017, and a tip

Good evening Y'all!!!   I hope and pray that this evening is and has been a lovely evening for all of you.    It has been a very nice day in my neck of the woods.     The temperature has been perfect for me.     I guess this is the welcoming of Fall, because it will be here before too long.    This month, as a matter of fact.    We was out and about over the weekend and I was really wishing there was some where to go where they were making Sorghum.     Oh, that is a sight to behold.     I love it.     It brings back fond memories of going to see Mr. Beliles cooking Sorghum.    What a treat.     I hope if you ever get a chance to go somewhere and watch the process, that you will do it.     Hopefully, you can even sample the finished product.     There is nothing else quite like Sorghum.     Go get some, quick, you won't regret it.

Well, today is September 6, 2017.   What does that day mean to you?    Is it a day worth remembering in your diary?     Well, for me it is.     The last 38, September 6's,  have been pretty special to me.     38 years ago this evening I married my wonderful husband.     I knew the moment I laid eyes on him that he would be my husband.     He knew the same thing.    I am so thankful to God that He gave me the man that He had chosen for me.     I don't make good decisions, but God does.     My husband has been my rock for the last 38 years.     It hasn't always been easy, but it has always been right.     

Anyway, I just wanted to share a blast from the past.     I don't know who those kids are!!!!     
Yep, that's us!!!    38 years ago!!!!   What happened???    I see bones that I haven't seen since then!!! You know what, I had on 4 inch heels right there.     hahaha    Could be some of the problems I'm having with my feet today, reckon?

You know what, it seems like only yesterday that we walked the aisle of the church for the first as husband and wife.     I said earlier that it hasn't always been easy, but it's always been right.    The only reason I can say that, is because we both let God make the choice for us.    God always does it right.     We both had a lot of learning and growing to do.    And we are still learning and growing today.     I am thankful to God for the last 38 years with my husband and I look forward to the next 38 with him.    

Thank you for taking a peek at today's blast from the past and sharing a few minutes of our special day.    I am so thankful for the institution of Biblical marriage.     God is all about right relationships and family.     I cherish that for myself, I hope and pray that you do too.

I almost forgot my tip for this post.    I got a little anxious for a second because I really did not have a tip planned.    But, I will give you a tip.    Give your marriage to God.   He always has your best interests at heart.    That is my tip, short and sweet.    God is good all the time, all the time God is good!!!   Amen!!

Well that's it for this evening.     I hope you enjoyed this quick trip down memory lane.   I did.    I hope that you will join me back here soon to see what else is going on in my neck of the woods.   Have a great night of refreshing  and energizing rest.     I hope that tomorrow is day filled with wonder and awe at how God is working in your lives.     

One last thing, please remember to pray for the hurricane victims in Texas and we are looking at the next one coming this weekend, in Florida.   It is already wreaking havoc in the Caribbean as I type.    I just pray that the destruction is kept at a minimum and that lives will be spared. 

Good night.   Remember that God loves you and I do too!   hugs, Patty

  1. What a beautiful couple and Happy Anniversary to you and your husband. Yes, keep all the Floridians in prayer. I have a daughter in that area and as I told her...material things can be replaced but not lives so if she needs to evacuate, then do so. We are here in VA and we will get part of this storm also. Hugs to you ~Lois

    1. Thanks Donna!!! We both have to attribute our marriage to God. Let me tell you, we both have been very head strong on our own about a lot of things that could have been very bad early on and that's when we realized that we can't run this ship. God has to be at the front of both of us. When we realized that we could work with God or against Him, deciding to work with was the only answer. Yes, Donna, I am so afraid for the people in harms way. I pray they can out before it's too late and I also pray that God prevent it from being as bad they as they are calling for it to be. Thanks again Donna, I really appreciate it! hugs, patty
