This is always a special day to us.  We love our church and church family, and especially our Pastor.  As one member said, it is 'our happy place'.  But our love for God is the true reason we meet to worship.

Not a lot of news to report. Aryn and her Dad are in Atlanta this weekend for an AAU(Amateur Athletic Union)basketball tournament. Grayce and her Mom are in Huntsville, Al. for an AAU soccer tournament.  I am not sure what Jenn and her girls, nor Murphy and his two did or are doing this weekend....haven't gotten a report!  lol

I was roaming around the shops yesterday and found some candles that change color, or can stay any color you need to match your table or room decor.  They run on batteries and were on sale for a really good price, so I purchased three.
....and these three colors are by no means all.  There is red, green purple, orange, yellow and several more.  I am a 'candle' lover, but regular ones burn out too quickly, so am hoping these will be around a long time!

Also yesterday, I cancelled my Sprint contract and added myself to Verizon, which Jim uses.  It saves us 25.00 a month.  Not sure why we had two carriers unless I got my phone first and he came along later and got Verizon.  I had to get a new telephone that was Verizon.  I got the very same style, 'ye old flip phone' because I don't text, nor do I use the Internet on my phone.  I have my computer, as well as my Kindle for that.
I felt accomplished.


Buying something on sale is a very special feeling.  In fact, the less I pay for something, the more it is worth to me.  I have a dress that I paid so little for that I am afraid to wear it.  I could spill something on it, and then how would I replace it for that amount of money?


  1. Good Morning!!! I love those candles. Have a nice day at church. Safe travels for your family. Blessings

  2. You accomplished a lot yesterday! I like your new candles. Hope you have a good day!

  3. Those candles are amazing! I hope you have a lovely week :)

  4. What a great idea, to have candles that change color!! You know, Linda, I have a closet full of great bargains that never wear out. Put that dress on and just try to ruin'll have it in 5 years, still good as new! ;)

  5. Those candles are neat. I love a good bargain and get a big kick out of telling folks about my great buy! Wishing you a nice afternoon/evening.

  6. I've been thinking about buying some of those battery powered candles. I think they're really pretty.
    We use Verizon too. It's the only one that works in our area. I'm glad y'all could save some buck too. I also use a "flip" since I don't text and I use the computer for surfing.
    Hope your day was a blessed one. ~:)

  7. Hope you had a wonderful day at church! It always makes me feel so great.

    I love those candles. I was going to get them, but wasn't sure if they really worked. I think I'll look into it.
