Red Balloons!!

Published March 30, 2016 by emmaperez1961

In the mist of adding my B&B to my blog, I had gone to the thrift store to see if I can find some suitable dishes for my tray. And with no luck at all I left the store disappointed. As I proceeded out the door, I remembered that their was a party city nearby. And I had a thought that maybe they might carry some kind of glass wear. So I went in to check it out. And of course to my dismay, their wasn’t any.

But did find a Wilton baking isle, which I wasn’t expecting to see at all and told the cashier that I would definitely come back. Purchased a few tips and sprinkles.

While I was waiting in line to pay for my products, this lady yells that she was giving away balloons for free. I guess she didn’t like the color or something and that they we’re already purchased. She said ‘If  you want some just let the cashier know and she’ll give them to you.’ I was like, that’s cool! And thanked her.

I didn’t realized the colors until I sat waiting for the bus. Now, their were black ones but I asked for the gold and red ones only. It was just so ironic that the balloons matched the the book that I was about to study. ‘Fighting back With Joy’. I felt so blessed that my Lord wanted me to have these balloons.

Now the reaction of the people was a big deal cause it made me realize something else. In-which I will share with you later in the days to come. I felt so giddy the rest of the ride home that I couldn’t wait to take a picture of both the balloons and book.

Now their is always a reason why our Lord does what He does. Its behind the reason of the balloons that I’m so in awe about. Otherwise, I would have never seen or thought about it.

Come back for my next post. I’ll be doing a vlog on the books.wp-1458941317557.jpg

I received my books Saturday. I thought I would have to wait another week actually but now I can jump right into the study tomorrow missing just one week. Isn’t that awesome! Jesus is incredible. His timing with me always blows me away. I’ll do a  vlog and show you the inside of the book and I’ll let you know how my first lesson went. Don’wp-1458525368517.jpgt forget to check in!!

Coming to an end!

So here we are. Seeing another year coming to an end. I’ve read  a lot of post of how many didn’t do all of what they set out to accomplish. But that’s OK, because you came closer than last year. And now you know what it takes. So as we count down the days to the new year, all we can do is ask ourselves “What did I learn this year?” Or you! And take that into the new year as a lesson learned.

The one thing I did learn this year was that ‘There’s no time to waste time!’ When you think about all that has to be done, (work, family, grandchildren, birthdays, holidays, not to mention all the classes your taking). It’s like a whirlwind going around your head. And all you want to do is scream ‘Stop!’

I read someone who wrote that between after Christmas and New years theirs nothing to do. Right! Because you spent all year going here, going there, planning this, planning that. Some are probably still doing it rolling into the new year but for most we just stop! Everything has been done. And we sit twiddling our thumbs as to say “Now what?”

So, here we are thinking of regrets, disappointments, what we got done and what wasn’t. At least I do. If only I would of done this or that. Would of, could of, should of! But hay! Theirs always next year!

So don’t kick yourself. You did the best you could. And I’ll give you an ‘A’ for putting in the effort and trying. Who can ask for more than that?

And after doing my own review, like I do every year. I decided to take on little journeys here and there. So, I’m looking  forward to filling in my 2016 planner for that. And yes get a planner! Its not the same as writing stuff in your phone. Odds are your not going back to look unless your on the go and have a business. No, seriously! So make that a priority on your list for next year.

I am happy to say though, that I was finally able to make my ‘snowflake cookie’ this year. Came out cute and my grandchildren loved them. It only took two years! Couldn’t get hold of the darn cookie cutter. I guess there is a time for everything. Is that Ecclesiastic or Lament? Its one of those.

What I was really looking for though, was a cookie cutter for the Star of David. Which I didn’t find. Maybe thru one of my journeys this year, I’ll find one. So, I stuck with the snowflake instead.

I’m also looking forward to writing more through out the new year. So, until then keep being productive and creative. Believe me everything you learned last year won’t be wasted.

Have a Happy Blessed New Year Everybody!!!!!wp-1451322633036.jpg
