Hey friends, how am I doing? Why thank you for asking…. I am doing well.  It’s a beautiful day in my neighborhood. The cicadas are so loud, they’ve drowned out every other sound, including that of the birds.  But that’s okay, because cicadas herald the warmth of a new day. I know it’s going to be a warm day, because the cicadas say so.  Well actually, I know it’s going to be a good day, because the God of Universe is still in control. I know for a fact, He did not abdicate His throne.  How do I know that? Well, you’re just asking all the right questions today, aren’t you? Because the Bible tells me so; that’s why!

And there is also this one, although there are many, many more verses just like these in the Bible. Did you read your Bible today? You should take the time to do so, if you didn’t. I promise, you will not regret it.

Aren’t these wonderful, reassuring, settling verses? Sometimes when I’m anxious or afraid (yes, although I have been adulting for a while now, the world can still frighten me, at times) I ‘go to the ROCK that is higher than I’ (Psalm 61:2).

Guess what time it is? Guess what!? 


Everyone is invited; you do not have to share my faith to participate.


Here are some simple rules: 

First off, everyone is welcome to participate in this Blog Party (even if you do not currently follow me, although I would LOVE it if you do!)

If you are a new follower of my blog, say hi and let me know so that I can remember to drop by your blog and check you out.

Leave a Comment! Say hi and tell us who you are and what your blog is about. Feel free to leave a link connecting back to your blog’s home page or to your favorite or most recent blog post! (Post this only once please.)

Mix and Mingle! This is where the party begins. I am blessed to have almost 3,000 followers and this is a great opportunity for many of my friends to meet each other. You guys are amazing, and I think a lot of you would enjoy meeting and following one another.

Because we are still celebrating summer, be sure to say what you’ve done, so far, along with your other comments!

ONE MORE THING…  Well 2 more, but won’t take long, I promise)

Remember, you never have to follow anyone just because they follow you. However, it is good manners to always return a page visit for a page visit. Did someone stop by your blog, like or leave a comment? Do the same for them! It only takes a minute.

Don’t forget to REBLOG! Spread the fun by encouraging your own followers to join in the party! This is the best way to attract new bloggers by spreading the word.

Let’s continue the conversation over on Instagram. Follow my Instagram and I will follow back, just let me know in the comment section.

Success! You're on the list.
