Back to Normal Just Ain't Interesting!

Well, everything around my place is getting back to normal. My daughter and her family  are back in Alabama. Friends are back to work, and my routine is now back in place. I'm back to that same ole same-o.Back to normal...... peace and quiet. I say QUIET is  sometimes overrated. Sigh......and after all the conversations with my grandchildren,nieces and nephews, all the chuckling over their innocent comments.....normal just ain't interesting at  AWWWWLLLLLLL! (Kimmi..I miss you and yours so much already! )

I waited too late to post family pictures of our Christmas gatherings, so I guess I just won't. 
I'll just focus on the new year 2011.

Most of us look at the year 2010 ,remembering the good and the bad of the year. My brother preached a message titled "Remember" tonight. It was very timely, and food for thought.It ended beautifully with my brother reminding us that with repentence God will remember our sin no more!How beautiful. Then I started remembering some of the promises left to us in the Holy Bible,which subsequently led to this song playing in my head. We seniors should remember when this song was a gospel hit. I think the Happy Goodmans sang it.

Looking for a city, where we'll never die,
There the sainted millions, never say good-by,
There we'll meet our Savior, and our loved ones too,
Come O Holy Spirit, all our hopes renew

Signs of the times are everywhere.I love the end of one year and the ushering in of another. Milestones remembered and  times for new starts. If you don't really know Jesus like you want to know Him, why not make this the year that you find that place with Him?  We can never get too close to Jesus! My motto this year is going to be "Preparing for Heaven in 2011".
Friends, I am looking for that place. I want to go there,don't you?


  1. I think it is very important to always give thanks for everything, whether it's tiny, small, ordinary, or extraordinary. To someone, even the tiny is huge and we must never doubt our blessings no matter how everyday they seem. Life in every form is most definitely a miracle before our very eyes.
    ('s never too late to post Christmas pictures :D ) XOXOXO

  2. I definitely want to go there to see my family again. I pray to God each day that I will make it.

  3. Hi Jackie, so glad to see your post and what a post it was ! ! I loved Vestal Goodman, such a powerful voice. There is a video on "you tube" of the her/and the Goodmans singing "Looking for a City." It's an old clip and I just love it. If I can find it again I'll post the address ! !
    Happy New Year

  4. Hi Jackie, Go ahead and post your Christmas pictures. We'd love to see them.. I'm still doing Christmas posts and will for a few more weeks...

    Love your message of preparation for a new year... YES---there is always something to be thankful for.

    Glad you had a nice Christmas.

  5. Jackie, before I 'lose' you again, I'm bookmarking your blog!!
    So agree that there is always, always, always something to be thankful for. Going through life with a thankful heart makes the journey more enjoyable.
