Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Moutain Lake

No time to walk this morning because we went up to HT early and brought the trailer back to the house.  Wanted to do it early before there was any cars around.  It went very well.  Ken hooked the trailer up to the truck then drove it slowly down the mountain,  through town and backed it perfectly right beside the garage.  His driving skills amaze me.  I wouldn't even attempt trying to back that up the driveway!!
Now we can give it wash and put it up for sale.
 I made us pancakes for breakfast and we topped them off with bananas and syrup.  Then we were off to check out another church.  This one is the Mountain Lake Independent Baptist Church and I'm very happy to say that THIS IS THE ONE!!!  It is 19 miles away but worth the drive.  Very friendly people, people of all ages, there is a choir and we sang songs I knew and most importantly a pastor we really like who seems sincere in what he believes and preaches a good sermon.  A good Bible believing church. : )  I Thank God for answered prayers and for all those of you who prayed for us to find a church.

In church a woman who we now know as Connie came up to us and said, "I think we are neighbors.  Did you buy the house that had the two corvettes in the driveway?" When we said yes she told us that she lived up the street from us. She had been meaning to come over and introduce herself but hadn't gotten around to it yet.  That seemed to be a good sign to me.  The other sign was, near the end of the service when Pastor asked the question, "If you were to die tonight, do you know for sure you would go to heaven?"  Pastor Simpson at my old church used to ask that all the time.  When I heard that I just knew this was the church!!  : )

The weather is cool, sunny and beautiful today.
Hope your having a wonderful day too.
happyone  : )

May the God of hope fill you 
with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, 
so that you may overflow 
with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13


  1. Wonderful! A new church and a new neighbor!

    Well done with the driving and getting the trailer right where you needed it for now.

    We are having a quiet afternoon. We went out for lunch after church and now we're home on our respective devices in the middle of a thunderstorm. Very cozy!

    Have a great afternoon!

  2. Fabulous news... Glad you found a church that you love --and where you can find God there!!!!! YEAH....

    Glad also that you got the trailer back to the house from HT.... I'm sure you will sell it soon.

    What a glorious day you have had.... AND---having pancakes just makes it even nicer..


  3. I am glad to hear that you have found a church that is satisfying to you.

    Wish you well as you ready that trailer for sale!

  4. How exciting! I'm glad you've found the right church. It's good you didn't have time to get out of the habit of going to church before you found it.
    Every Sunday people ask if I've heard from you. I tell them what I know. They will be happy for you.
    Thinking of you often. Glad you're making friends. MJ

  5. So glad to hear that you have found a new church! It is always a happy thing to feel like you "go home" every Sunday when you go to church. Good luck on selling your trailer. I'm sure you will have it looking "Spic 'n span" and will have it sold in no time! Enjoy the week ahead!

  6. Glad you've found the right church for you. Makes a big difference.

  7. I think, with a church, you just "know". It's kind of like love in that way. You just have that "feeling" that you don't have with the others.

  8. That is great news! I'm so happy for you!
    And now I'm going to make pancakes for dinner :) Bananas and syrup sound like the perfect toppings!

  9. I am glad that you found the church for you! It was only a matter of time.
