Good Thursday Mornin' Yall,
I do hope everyone had a Blessed Wednesday and ready to start a new day. I am feeling some better this morning and finally got a good night's rest last night. It is 41 degrees here this morning with a windchill of 39 degrees. There may be a few showers lingering around, but they are suppose to move East this morning and then clearing this afternoon. It's still going to be chilly tho. Clouds start moving back in tomorrow afternoon and Friday night. According to our local weather guy, we will be getting a rain/snow mix here in our area. Now points North of Jonesboro, AR will be getting the snow. Then, further South of here, it's just going to be rain. Who knows, we will just have to stay tuned for the next episode of "Karen's Weather". LOL. Seriously tho, I don't think we will get much of anything but rain around my area. There could be a snowflake or two mixed in, but I do think the worse will be up close to the Arkanas/Missouri border.
Today is "THANKFUL THURSDAY". I have something to be very Thankful for. As many of you know that when hubby left out on Tuesday morning, he had to go down to South Arkansas and pick up a load and then take it to Meta, MO. Well, "PRAISE GOD" he made it there safe and sound. From Meta he had to go up to Mexico, MO and pick up another load. "PRAISE GOD" he made it up there just fine. He did tell me that he saw lots of trees with the Ice on them, but the roads were in good shape. He said the roads had been salted/sanded good on the roads. I "PRAISE GOD" for that. GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME, GOD IS GOOD!!!! I am also Thankful for all my blogging friends that I have met since I have been blogging. I am also Thankful for some of my blogging friends that survived the Ice Storm. Some didn't lose electricity, but some did. The ones that did lose electricity, made it thru the storm without losing any lives. "PRAISE GOD" again. I am Thankful for our Wonderful Savior who died on the Cross to save us from our sins. I am also Thankful for our Freedom we have here in the USA. I just have so much to be Thankful for that I could go on and on, but I'm sure you get the general picture. Just waking up each day and taking that first breath is something to be Thankful for. What do have to be Thankful for? Please feel free to share in the comments if you want to. I do enjoy hearing about everyone.
Yesterday, Karla's Cottage was hosting a "What do you love about your Holiday Home"? I didn't participate, but several of my blogging friends did. My friends that did participate showed some beautiful pictures of their homes all decorated. I seen some beautiful homes and decorations. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. I really enjoyed it. Don't forget about BooMama's Christmas Tour of Homes on the 17th of December. I had planned on participating in this, but I am not if I will be able to or not. The only camera I have is on my cell phone. It doesn't take the best of pictures as some of you have seen. Also, my cell phone is one of the Pre-Paid Cell Phones. I have to buy minutes for it. Since hubby will be out of a job soon, I am going to really have to watch my spending. So, I am having to save my minutes on my phone. I may try and post a few pictures, but not a whole lot. We will have to see. I was really looking forward to it, but hey, I have to do what I have to do to get by. I do hope that everyone understands.
We still need to remember everyone that was affected by the Ice Storm last weekend. They have said that millions of people are still without electricity. They said it could be up to 10 days or longer before electricity is restored. They are telling people to go stay in shelters where they have electricity so they can stay warm. From what I hear, they may be getting some snow as well this weekend. My blogging friend, Kansas Rose, lives in Kansas and she had some pictures on her blog this week from what damage she had at her home there in Kansas. It was just so sad. Last account I heard 24 people had lost their lives from the Ice Storm. We need to continue to pray and lift everyone up during this time. I know I can count on all of yall for your prayers.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my "THANKFUL THURSDAY". I am having my morning coffee and think I will go visit and see whose up and wants to have coffee with me. Yall take care and have a great Thursday. May God Bless You and Yours.
LOVE & HUGS,
