Happy Saturday To You.  While most of California is being inundated with rain, here we are enjoying mild days-albeit somewhat cool and signs of spring all around.  Early this morning,  before dawn,I could hear the birds softly singing.  Today is a routine day-exercise class, quilting(I actually get to sandwich my top to the bottom today), errands as well as celebrating our youngest grandaughters first birthday.  Rynne is a delight, so filled with smiles and big hugs and quite the sense of humor.  Hard to believe it was just a year ago that she was born.
This morning I picked up my devotional and read yesterdays post and it seemed to fitting to our lives-just want to share it with you today.
From Sarah Young, Jesus Calling " Let thankfulness temper all your thoughts.  A thankful mind-set keeps you in touch with Me.  I hate it when My children grumble, casually despising My sovereignty.  Thankfulness is a safeguard against this deadly sin.  Furthermore, a grateful attitude becomes a grid through which you perceive life.  Gratitude enable you to see the Light of My Presence shining on all your circumstances.  Cultivate a thankful heart, for this glorifies Me and fills you with Joy."  March 25.

I don't know about you, but I certainly want to be able to see the Light of His Presence shining in all my circumstances.  I want my simple life to glorify my Lord, in all things.
Weekend hugs to you today.  Noreen


  1. Good morning Noreen, ok~we here in East Texas needs that Rain! hopefully some next week. Wishing your baby a Happy:) birthday! Have a great Day! and I will Praise Him with you for all my divine Blessings!

  2. Hello Noreen!! I've so enjoyed this morning sitting down and reading your past posts. It has been a challenging time for me in that my values have been ridiculed...I'll spare you the details and just say thank-you for your posts that continue to uplift me and inspire and remind me of what's important. Thank-you for that! I hope you are having a good day and enjoyed Riverdance!

  3. Such a worthy "wanting". Me too. I have found as I age, I am much more mindful of my witness; my testimony. I want my every word & action to be pleasing to Him, and to bring honor to His name. I spent waaaayyyyy too many years doing it my way, and I fear the only glory be passed around is what I captured & kept for myself (which means it was anything BUT glorious) :)

    Enjoy your day of simple pleasures,

  4. This is my desire too, Noreen. Thanks for the encouragement. I find I am always learning and growing with my walk.

  5. Wow...can't believe she will be One. I can't believe my youngest will be 4. I can't wait to hear about the party.
    Thanks for sharing that quote....sounds like a great devotional (o:
