!!Happy New Year!!

I had to take some time to recover from all the Christmas activities!  We had a wonderful Christmas weekend and I sincerely hope you did too.

I've been slow to get anything done....although I did manage to take down all the Christmas and put it away until next year.  Of course, the Christmas spirit is never packed away, I keep it in my heart everyday....don't you?

Today I'm enjoying coffee in my new mug, a gift from my daughter.  It came in a gift box of Godiva Chocolate goodies!.....oh so yummy.  I love hot chocolate as much as I love my morning coffee.

Side Note;
I just watched a lady win $100,000.00 on
The Price is Right.

I've also started a new book...and it's proving to be awesome.  A wonderful study...

Believing God
Beth Moore

I knew after a few pages I would want to journal this awesome book. So, I made a
Believing God Journal.


The question raised in the wilderness wanderings was not whether the Israelites belonged to God or where they would spend eternity.  The place the chosen people of God would spend their earthly existence was the question.  They believed in God, their oversight was they didn't believe the God they believed in!!

We can be safely tucked in the family of God and have the full assurance of a heavenly inheritance without ever occupying the land of God's fulfilled promises on earth.

I try to never post anything political....but sometimes political and biblical can collide.

Please be praying for the Peace of Jerusalem

Psalm 122:6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.

Today I'm joining Deb at Breathing In Grace
For Friday Foto Friends

I'm so far behind in visiting your blogs....
I always enjoy visiting with you.
I'm going to try and play catch-up today!

Until Next Time
((hugs)) to all....


  1. Love your new header,Mary. I too like Beth Moore, I attended a seminar at church once on one of her books. I believe America will be making a terrible mistake if they don't continue to support Israel.
    Have a blessed New Year!

    1. Our president has made a terrible mistake...praying God's forgiveness for our country and praying the new administration will support Israel. Hope you have a very blessed New Year too!! ((hugs))

  2. Thank you for standing with Israel...I too stand with Israel. Praying for the peace of Jerusalem. 2017 is going to be a very interesting year. I am keeping my eyes on the eastern sky...

    Love your mug! And your journal...sounds like a great way to start the new Year! We've all been don't apologize for not keeping up with everyone. It's all I can do to keep up with myself right now! LOL. But soon we will fall back into our routines and we can catch up with each other on a more regular basis. Have a blessed, safe, and Happy New Year! Love Ya!!

  3. Oh, one more thing...I LOVE your header picture at the top...I just want to step into that picture/kitchen and visit with you. That's my kind of place!!

    1. Thank you Pam, I would love to have that kitchen and have you over for coffee!

  4. Beautiful header, Mary! Just charming. I love the journal you've made. The last graphic is so true. Israel is under God's watch and care. No weapon against them will prosper! Have a wonderful Happy New Year.

    1. Thank you Melanie!! I wish I could have that kitchen with a few modern updates. Happy New Year to you!!

  5. I stand behind Israel too. We have to!! We put Christmas away here, too, but it does live in our hearts all year long. What a wonderful Gift we were given!

    1. Yes, we were given the greatest gift ever!

  6. Standing with Israel, too. So happy to see your post. Christmas can be a stressful time, physically and emotionally. Hope for awesome blessings for you and your family in 2017. Love you, Friend.

    1. Love you too Deb!! Hope you have very blessed 2017!

  7. Praying for the peace of Jerusalem...

  8. Thank you for sharing your insights from the Bible study. I have done several of Beth Moore's studies and they are great. I agree with you about praying for Israel. I've been reading God's promises in Isaiah 65 for Jerusalem.

  9. This current administration has really set us back...well, I have an opinion on that---because he and his cronies are not Christian. I stand with Israel as well.

    Love your gifts, Happy New Year friend. smiles
