You know it's been a long time since you've blogged when...

Your Amazon advertisement still shows:
"Soaking Up Summer Savings" the day before Thanksgiving!
I promise I haven't fallen off the face of the earth!  In fact, I have a lot to catch up on! 
Over the last 3 months, we celebrated our 22nd Wedding Anniversary:
And welcomed a new grand baby, all on the same day!
Mercedes Ann Cook

We also celebrated some birthdays:


Sarah Eden - 7!

Zion Philip - 1!
Took a road trip...
and brought home a Marine!
Not to mention the everyday stuff like schooling, gardening, home upkeep, and discipleship (a renewed and rejuvenated topic close to our hearts)!
Thank you to all of you who have inquired about where we've been!
  Thank you to those of you who have personally stopped me and said encouraging words to nudge me to get back to blogging!
There are some interesting topics rattling around in my head, so I hope you're prepared for some challenging and uplifting thoughts to spur you on as well!!!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Weekend! 
Remember to hug your loved ones close, tell them how much they mean to you, reach out to a stranger - even if only with a smile, and praise The One who makes it all possible!
Thanks for stopping by!  Be Refreshed!!!
