Home
















"Don't force me to leave you; don't make me go home. Where you go, I go; and where you live, I'll live. Your people are my people, your God is my god; where you die, I'll die, and that is where I will be buried." Ruth 1:16-17 The Message

Lately, I have been thinking about family and home. Home is wherever my husband Doug and I are together. Whether a large home or a humble tent, I am content to be with him. The things of this world will pass away, but our love will last forever. I praise GOD for bringing him into my life.

Thanking HIM,

Andrea

*Tomorrow (Thursday), I will spending time with my eye doctor. I pray each of you have a wonderfully blessed day! See you when my eyes recover from my doctor visit!

Thank you for your prayers.....I went and had a late afternoon nana nap and some of the pain went......but the thunder has come now and I realize it is rheumatic pain with the weather change.....so praying for rain as the cold front comes through. The city is praying....if they only knew how! for the rain not to spoil the New Years Eve fireworks.

Happy New Year Andrea. I love that verse. That's what we had on our wedding invitation card.

Will be praying for your doctor's visit tomorrow.

How I can relate to those days when your eyes are all goopy because of various drops from the eye doctor. Hope your are completelly well of the eye problem. Thanks for your comments on my blog. You are a treasure. Happy New Year!

Deb said...

Andrea,

So glad that you and your man have a love like that!

I feel the same way. If we're together, then I have a home. Wherever we may be.

Read several of your previous posts. Love the verses that you chose. And the insights that you shared.

Hope that your visit with the doctor went well.

And that you have a Happy New Year.

Sweet dreams.

Yolanda said...

Happy New Years!

How are your eyes?

Andrea said...

My eyes are great. I have to get new glasses with bi-focals (progressive lens). This is a big change for me, but the doctor assured me it is all normal and a part of the aging process. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support. I am thankful GOD brought each of you into my life.
Hugs and prayers on this New Years Day,
andrea

Tracy said...

Glad to see in the update that your eyes are fine. I get frustrated by the fact that I now need reading glasses (eye dr told me that most people do as they age).

You really take great pictures and your words about your husband bring me such happiness. It's great to see someone who is grounded in the goodness of God and enjoys His blessings.

May your New Year be blessed, Andrea. I'm thankful that 2009 saw our paths crossing. I look forward to more opportunities to share the warmth of Love, Light, Home and Friendship.
