If you are willing, He is able.

When you move to a new area you wonder if you will find any great places to shop for those treasures that you have always filled your home with.
Moving to a new state was a little intimidating!

Surprisingly, it didn't take long for me to figure out where all the wonderful shops were located.

It started with a trip to the Vintage Market with the women's group from our church, and from there, things took off!!

Finding a greenhouse and garden center was also awesome!!
Everything fell into place after we found our church home and family.

As a matter of fact, it's time to get ready for Sunday morning service.
Jim's Christian Motorcycle Association chapter will be at the service this morning.
It will be a noisy start to the service with all of the Harleys pulling into the parking lot!!

They are a great group of men and women that work with the homeless, orphans, and less fortunate around the state...witnessing and sharing Christ's love.

Jim also visits the nursing home at least once a week to visit the people there. He has such a tender heart. 

You just never know where God will take you, and what He has planned for you.
Even in the retirement years of your life.
If you are willing, He is able.

Yay!! It finally works again!!

I am totally amazed that this worked!
I took photos with my actual camera and popped the disk into the computer and downloaded the photos!
They transferred over to my blog as easy as could be!

This is just like when I used to blog!
If it worked like this for the past few years, I would have been posting all along.

I have not been on here in way too long.
It was so frustrating, I just gave up.

I really do not care for IG.
I have been staying connected on FB, but so miss my blogging friends, and posting on blogger.

We have worked really hard on putting in a flower garden here in Alabama.
Lots of planting after pulling out all of the shrubs that were planted all around the deck.
We have some container planters as well.

It's still a work in progress.
I love the way things are progressing so far.

We have a large raised garden for my herbs. Next year there will be another.

Some of the plants we brought down from Michigan transplanted well. Some others did not.
We have been bringing in new plants from a great greenhouse we found near here.

Very few David Austin roses transplanted well, but I am happy with what made it!!

I love the extended growing season down here!
The warmth and sunshine help my mood and outlook.
There are two Cilantro plants that need to be put in the ground.
Time to get outside and dig in the dirt...again!
Enjoy Spring!
