Sunday Thoughts

This morning I woke to a cool temperature of 60 degrees. It felt invigorating.

So I promptly went to work on the laundry, cooking and prepping for the weeks meals, working on bills, and repotting a couple of plants.

I love this weather. I love Fall. Having the windows and doors open, things roasting and baking is dream like for me.

Today has been a true gift, and I am thankful.

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2

What are you thankful for today?

Blessings.

Walk

David and I volunteered this morning for the Making Strides Breast Cancer Awareness Walk.

It was a hot, beautiful day. We were on the fruit station, cutting up bananas and oranges. I love being involved especially when we have had friends impacted by breast cancer. But really who hasn’t?

It was a good day. Hug the ones you love.

Blessings.

Perfection

I have to remind myself that I don’t have to be perfect at everything.

I don’t know about you, but I am a perfectionist at heart. So this is hard for me, but I have to let go of some things.

Are you putting energy and effort where you really don’t need to?

Blessings!

Help–Hurricane Michael

I live in the Panhandle of Florida, approximately 75 miles from where Hurricane Michael devastated Mexico Beach, and Panama City.  Other much smaller communities were destroyed as well but aren’t talked about right now.

I have posted pictures of my family and I having fun, with no damage.  It so could have been us if the storm hadn’t turn.  We were blessed by a cold front coming from the North, that’s it.  We are helping by donating items that we purchased for the storm and didn’t use.  If you feel the need to help but don’t know where to start please see below.  If nothing else, please pray for those affected and those helping.

Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office

Many of us are being contacted by family, friends, church groups and community members wanting to do something to help in regard to Hurricane Michael.

On a consolidated effort we are recommending Volunteer Florida. They are located in Tallahassee and are the lead agency for volunteerism in Florida. Their board of commissioners are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate.

They can be reached at www.volunteerflorida.org info@volunteerflorida.org   https://www.facebook.com/VolunteerFlorida and 850-414-7400.  If you go to their website, you initially have 2 options, “donate” money or “volunteer” to choose from. Those links will take you to other pages to fill in information.

There are a lot of people that want to deliver supplies. For law enforcement, public safety, emergency workers, residents, animals, etc. We are trying to determine needs, the receiving point and coordinator for those efforts. It’s a huge effort and could sometimes cause significant logistical complications on site, and please don’t recommend anyone just head that way without coordination. They may arrive and not be allowed to enter the area, nowhere to deliver and the community doesn’t know it’s there to collect.

Blessings.

Hurricane Michael Part 3

We are fine. The eye went to Mexico Beach, and I am grateful and sad.

Our family and friends in general are fine.

We ended up playing cards and having hotdogs. Super fun, and so grateful it was just a little rain and wind.

Devastation for so many in Panama City and in the path of this storm. Prayers for those not so far away from us.

Blessed.
