Time Off ~

Hello to you, my dear and faithful followers!
I have been MIA these past couple of weeks
while helping with the needs of my mother.
While I was away my post came up in honor of
dad's one year anniversary where he is now in heaven
beholding the glory of God.
It's hard to believe that he has been away from our presence 
for a year now. Where does the time go?
I want to thank you for your precious visits and tender comments
that were shared in love, and I apologize for taking so long in replying
back to those of you who left comments.
Those of you who are a "no-reply" thank you for your beautiful comments and visit.
I appreciate your love and grace shown through your friendship.
May God's grace shine upon you.

For the next couple of weeks I will be
enjoying some time off relaxing in the beauty of God's creation
as seen in these images.
"And He walks with me and He talks with me
and He tells me I am His own.
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
none other has ever known."
~ Hymn In The Garden ~
I'm looking forward to some quiet time alone with my Savior,
as we walk and commune together with no distractions.
Therefore, I will be leaving the internet at home where it belongs
and all the electronic devices that are a part of my daily life
will be taking time off as well.
There is sweet, sweet fellowship to be found
as we seek out the Lord in quietness and confidence.
God desires to meet our every need when we call upon His name, and seek His face.
"But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God,
thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart
and with all thy soul."
(Deuteronomy 4:29) 

When I return back to our wonderful community of Blogging
I would love to share with you an amazing story of the hand of God.
This little sweetie is our new addition
to our family and home.
My little "Honey Pot"

"My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto Thee,
and will look up."
(Psalm 5:3)
Precious Heavenly Father,
cause us to always "look up" 
as we daily seek Your face
with praise on our lips.

Be Glorious!
~ Debbie ~

What a sweet post, Debbie. May the Lord richly bless you in your time away as you seek to refresh your soul in Him. What a gorgeous spot to enjoy! Take your time getting back to the routines of blogging and all things will all be here when you decide to return. These breaks are necessary and good. Hugs, Camille

Dearest Debbie, this is such a lovely post. Enjoy your time in nature! Nature is very soothing and healthy for me and I hope it will provide the same for you. Much love and hugs to you. Your little dog is adorable! :)

Dear Debbie, A wonderful heart felt post; so glad you were able to care for your mom~such a blessing to still have a mom around. I truly understand your need to be away, but please know you'll be missed! I'm looking forward to hearing about your new Honey Pot-how she came to you and how you are all adjusting.
Sending love and prayers your way!

Debbie, take precious time to relax and be restored with your Saviour.

Stephanie said...

Your little Honey-Pot looks like she is smiling :) What a precious picture!

I know you will enjoy your time away from the blog and I know you will return refreshed and restored. Enjoy your time in God's glorious creation.

Love you! I'm off to have a little rest...this morning I actually felt "normal" after this week-long bug and I may have gone overboard in my enthusiasm to do things around the home because now I'm exhausted and coughing again. Oh well, baby steps :)

Pom Pom said...

Aw! I love your new pup!
Have lots of fun and enjoy a sweet change of pace.
God be with you, Debbie!

Dear Debbie,

What a beautiful post! I look forward to hearing about your little Honey Pot...what a cutie!

I hope you enjoy a lovely break and find refreshment, renewal, and relaxation! May you have a blessed time away from the web...sometimes that is a very needed thing and always a blessing!

Wishing you a lovely rest of the weekend and upcoming week :)

Kim said...

Have a lovely and peaceful time away, lovely Debbie. Your Honey Pot is so very sweet!

Love and blessings to you, sweet friend, as you rejuvenate in God's beauty and presence. Your Honey Pot is adorable...almost as cute as you! Love and hugs are sent to you.

Enjoy your time off! Will await your return and the story of that cute doggy!

As always, sweet Debbie, what a beautiful post you've shared. I love the beautiful photos and especially love the words of that precious hymn, "In the Garden," that I remember singing with my grandmother on Sunday afternoons. We would sing in harmony - she in her alto voice and me in my soprano voice. What precious moments that I cherish. And I know you will continue to cherish precious moments you have of your time with your dear daddy! What a great time to "unplug" for a while and Him! Praying that God will refresh you. And I love the sweet addition to your family! How adorable! Big hugs, precious friend, and enjoy your time off! Love xoxo

Ginny said...

Be blessed with the quiet time with the Lord! If I could ask you to remember me in prayer, please. I have a few health issues that are troubling for me and I could use a bit of prayer support. Also, my husband and I are going through a bit of a financial difficulty and it is stressful for both of us. Finally, I will lift you up in prayer as you spend time with the One who is our constant companion of life and that you truly are rested and inspired to write more beautiful blog entries so that those blessings can be passed along to us! love...

bj said...

Thank you for coming by...have a good break and I'll see you when you return.

Consider It All Joy said...

Good for you Debbie! We should ALL spend a little 'unplugged' time now and again! I pray you are enjoying a sweet time with our Lord being refreshed and renewed! Blessings, Cindy xo

Jeanna said...

Enjoy your time off, Debbie. Looking forward to meeting your Honey Pot.


Celestina Marie said...

Dear Debbie, Oh your little "Honey Pot" is adorable. Can't wait to hear the story. I know first hand how good it is to unplug and refresh with God's direction. Wishing you a wonderful time away filled with many blessings and joys!! Love, xo

Cheryl said...

What a precious, little dog! It looks like he is smiling!! :) So sweet and happy! I am sure you make life very comfortable and pleasant for him! Enjoy your time off with our dear Lord, sweet friend. I love those precious times when He is so near, and we can seek Him with no worldly distractions. Love and appreciate you so much!

Marilyn Mathis said...

Sweet Debbie, Wish you the blessings of the Lord during your time off. You are such a blessing to others and it is time for you to take time for yourself. Hugs

Deborah Montgomery said...

You are very smart to leave the internet at home! It can certainly be a distraction. Enjoy your time off, Debbie, and I pray you will enjoy extra-sweet fellowship with our Lord. And, what an adorable little puppy! xo Deborah

Linda Walker said...

Dear Debbie,
Your little "Honey Pot" is very sweet! I am a crazy dog lover!!! I hope you enjoy your time away. I agree that we all need time to disconnect in order to connect! God bless you Debbie!

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

Honey Pot... oh the name is so endearing.. can't wait to hear the story of how he came to you... love the picture of you both! You have had a round of adventures with your mother, and now it is time for relaxation, and time with the Lord... and you will be blessed with the quiet time with Him, sans electronics! Those pictures speak of tranquil and precious times with the Lord! The best times I have with Him are as I walk and roam His creation. He is never nearer to me than at those times! Praying that your heart is blessed and refreshed, and looking forward to when you can share your story about Honey Pot!!!! Hugs, love and prayers for you :)

Karen said...

Enjoy this special time! God bless you

Hi, Debbie! I hope your time off will be restful and peaceful. Loved the post about your daddy and all the nice photos of him. An honorable father is an immense gift. I popped over to see the stationary exchange with Pom, so hope to read about that soon :) God bless - MK
