"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the LORD "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

PAY IT FORWARD...........

Well, I participated in my first Habitat for Humanity house here in Clinton. Parkway was part of the group and felt like I could at least do something even if it was picking up "trash" building supplies. I showed up at 8:00 and proceeded to embark on painting and varnishing. By the end of the day I looked like someone that had just climbed out of a dumpster. Paint all over me, varnish sticking my fingers together and my hair kinked up like an afro (it was humid yesterday). And the the final blow, or blows, I should say is that channel 12 showed up to get video footage AND Tim Nichols from the Clinton News came around with his camera, took pictures and talked to everyone. I really tried to pretend I didn't see him but it didn't work. The best part of that day yesterday was I loved every minute of it. My life has been such a series of blessings, even the rough times, that it was the least I could do to show the Lord my thankfulness here at Thanksgiving. No better way to show what you are thankful for than to pay it forward.
GOD Bless!!!

Well, I voted this morning and it wasn't bad where I was in terms of waiting. I got to my place to vote at 6:45 and was done about 7:15. There were about 20 people ahead of me. I have to admit I will be glad to not have to listen to anymore garbage from the media about the polls and who's ahead and who is saying what. Whatever the outcome we as Americans will always persevere with whatever comes our way. I can tell you this that I voted my consious and I will always put my faith in GOD because I do know that he IS in control no matter what.

On another note, yesterday I received my partner for the Very Vintage Christmas Swap that I am participating in at http://www.foxglovesfabricandfolly.blogspot.com/ , I have been paired with Sherri in North Carolina and I looking forward to getting to know her. Sherri is an avid reader and it will be a fun adventure finding the right things to send to her.

Have a great day and GOD bless!
