“ Oh “… Hello there. Just thought I would stop by. It has been awhile since I posted anything on my blog. It has almost been a whole year. Lots has happened in my life since my last post. Some good , and some challenges along the way. A few health issues of my own , and my mom as well. I have learned to take  one day at a time, and God gives me new Grace for each day.

Life goes on and is to be embraced, and celebrated, and not taken for granted. I am thankful for the life God has given me, and I strive to walk with Him day by day.

I have a new Granddaughter and her name is Marina. Now Mikey has a baby sister. She was named after my mom. That makes me smile. I am truly Blessed in so many ways. Yep! 7 Grandchildren. Six girls and one boy. Everyone loves Mikey. He doesn’t seem to mind and I don’t think he knows the difference at this point in his life. He gets lots of attention and he doesn’t mind that a bit. :)

Well I sure hope to find you all well. As I write this little message I think of so many of you I have met over the yrs. and often think of you even though I haven’t been blogging as of late.

I want to wish all who read this, a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year, filled with Love and Joy, Laughter, and Good Health, and the Peace that passes all understanding. God Bless each and everyone of you.

I will try and visit some of your blogs in the next little while.

As I close I would like to leave you with this verse of scripture which many of you are familiar with but it speaks of the reason for the Christmas Season.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour  which is Christ the Lord.  St. Luke 2:11

But to all who believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God.  John 1:12

So yes! We have a lot to be Thankful for, and to celebrate.

God Bless each and every one of you, and may each one of us be a blessing to the Lord Jesus Christ as we celebrate His Birthday once again.

Sincerely Dianne :)

The Road Ahead_ Farewell For Now


One should never take the easy road, but rather the right road, no matter how long the travel.



I have decided to take a break from blogging. I have wrestled with this for some time now. Not sure when I will be back, or if I will be back. I am not sure what’s around that corner up ahead. Time will tell. Life is busy, life is good, but I can’t burn the candle of both ends any longer. This is a good thing I think. We all need change in order to grow.

My life has be enriched, and blessed by so many of you here in Bloggersville. Thank you for sharing your lives, and thank you for your friendship. I will try and visit from time to time, and will leave my blog open for now. I don’t believe in burning bridges, and I may be back in time.

Wishing you all the very Best.

God Bless You and take care.

Love and Hugs

Dianne :)

Only A Tiny Rosebud

It is only a tiny rosebud,
A flower of God’s design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.
The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
GOD opens this flower so sweetly,
When in my hands they fade and die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of God’s design,
Then how can I think I have wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?
So I’ll trust in Him for His leading
Each moment of every day.
I will look to him for His guidance
Each step of the pilgrim way.
The pathway that lies before me,
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I’ll trust Him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. The longer I live the more my mind dwells upon the beauty and the wonder of the world.
