PLEASE MR. POSTMAN

Posted by Picasa


The word blessing is defined as something promoting or contributing to happiness, well-being, or prosperity. The subject of blessings is incorporated extensively in the Bible. There are three Greek words utilized to translate the word "blessing", a verb, a noun and and an adjective. They each mean "praised," "to call on Gods power" and "fine speaking" sequentially. This farm chick finds blessings come in all sizes and just as many forms. I feel blessed to awaken to the smile on Hubby's face when the sun arises in our Ozark holler beaming over the treetops toppin' the hill. My heart flutters watchin' the bluebirds busily furnishing their nests to raise their broods. Butterflies and flowers excite me and hummingbirds astound my very soul. I find joyous blessings waltzing with the granddaughters and doin' the Irish jig with my grandson. Yep, I did! I am continually blessed with the sweet comforting voice of a good friend but other day I found a blessing in my mailbox of all places!

I received a surprise package from Teresa@Grammy Girlfriend that has heaped my days full of blessings. Just look at all this loot! I'm tellin' ya'll this was like blessings raining from heaven filled with three wonderful CD's. Sheila Walsh's ,"All That Really Matters" worship, Sand Patty's, "Hymns of Faith Songs of Inspiration" and Women of faith, "Extraordinary Faith." Now if that don't make your skirt fly up, nothin' will! I have enjoyed this music so much while working 'round the Ponderosa. I do love beltin' out a good tune!!! I received a beautiful bookmark with scripture that can also be used on a key-chain to hide God's word in you purse. Heeeheehe! But that's not all folks....wait....cards, beautiful cards, just look at 'em! Have ya ever seen anything any cuter? She must of know how much I love to send cards of encouragement. Teresa is on a one woman campaign to revive sendin' snail mail cards to bless those you love.

Teresa is a God lovin' wife of her "one of a kind" hubby, Mama to two gorgeous children and Grammy to Parker, Austin, Jack and Grayson. She loves football, movies and is all about family. She is a colossal Disney fan. I think she's a bit smitten on that Mickey. She also has her Christmas blog, "A Baby Changes Everything, where you can always get the Christmas Countdown and enjoy the song the blog is named after. This Christian sister is on a card givin' giveaway frenzy. I tell ya'll the woman has gone plumb wild! Really visit her blog and enter her card giveaways so you to can be a blessing too. Go....visit....sit down and stay a spell at her beautiful blog but while you there leave her a comment for a chance to win some cards so you too can be a blessing just spreadin' the love. Why before you know it ya'll be singin' The Marvelettes 1961 single hit song askin',"C'mon deliver the letter, the sooner the better", "Please Mr. Postman???

  10. For as excited as I get when there is package in the mail, one might think I would send more of the things myself. Maybe I'll make that a summer project...

  14. I am blessed, I believe, to read this post today, Nezzy. I have been wondering about "blessings" lately. Your definitions from the Greek gives me food for thought. Thank you. What a nice package you got in the mail, especially since it included the cards for you to share with others. A card in the mail is a special treat and always adds cheer to a day.

  22. Nezzy, when I saw the pic, I thought, "Wow, Nezzy won another giveaway!" If there is anybody who is more deserving of winning anything, it's you. Whenever I read the comments you leave on my blog, I always feel as if they come with a hug and a squeeze. Thank you for spreading your special brand of cheer around. :)

  25. I'm always so glad that we're only asked to make a 'joyful noise' and to not sing perfectly. I can't carry a tune in a bucket with the lid nailed on, but I love to "sing". :)

    Enjoy your music!

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a lovely thing for her to do. Every night before I go to sleep I say, "Thank you God for this day. I am blessed in every way." And darned if it isn't true, too. Lovely post.

    Wow what a wonderful blessing indeed !
    I am so happy for you sweetie .
    Perhaps this will help as old man Winter has to huff and puff one more time even though it is time for him to go and let spring take a turn at nature's wheel .
    A cousin of mine passed away and the funeral will be Saturday and they have forecasted snow
    for southern Oklahoma on the first day of spring.
    Well it will be alright because she is home in Heaven and no longer suffering .
    Thank you Nezzy for sharing your many blessings of joy with us today .
    May your life continue to overflow with countless blessings of love,joy good health and peace of heart .
    Happy Trails

  63. And your greatest blessing, I suspect, is being one of those people who so clearly see them.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I only seem to get bills and junk mail. I must say that e-mails are my way of hearing good news from family and friends around the world.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hi Nezzy Sweetie...
    What a beautiful post, sharing your gifts of love. I adore the CD's that you received. I too would be singing up a storm with those choices. What a wonderful box of tunes just for little ole you. I love it sweetie.

    Your cards are just beautiful. I love getting letters from home. Daddy still writes me every week. He doesn't have a computer and he sends out two pages each and every week, and I write back. That is the only way besides calling that I can talk with him.

    Thank you for sharing sweetie. I so love to come and let my heart soar here with all of your happiness. You are such an angel you truly make my "Heart Happy" each and every time I stop by and knock on your back screen door. (By the way thank you for always letting me in.) I love ya sweetie. Country hugs and so much love...Sherry

  66. The mail used to be something we all ran to get, but once in awhile there's still a hand signed card or a magazine we receive that makes a mailbox worthwhile.

    ReplyDelete
  67. How great that you were blessed by Teresa. Don't we love surprises? I agree with all the sweet little things you consider blessings too.. birds, flowers... things of that nature and the older I get the more I love them. Thank God for all the sweet things he blesses us with!
    love,Gwen

  75. What a blog! I am fascinated by your posts! I am so glad you visited me so I found out about you.. I love to hear about life on a farm and the way you write is terrific!

    Yes, we are so blessed every day and if we just concentrate on those and count them we would be a happier person. I know I have been blessed so many times.

    I feel so bad that the calf died. It would be hard for me to live on a farm and see that. but I thoroughly enjoyed your tale of the ice storm and bringing the cattle to market. What a talent! When are you writing your book?

    ReplyDelete
  93. I know what you mean about sending letters via the mail being almost extinct. My Godmother still sends cards for everything and it thrills my kids to pieces! They fight over who gets to open the cards from Aunt Rosie and will walk around the house with them for days after!

    I just found your blog and am loving it! I was reading some of your older posts and found your remedy for shingles. I'm passing it on to my Hubby's Grandma as she suffers with them so! Thanks for sharing.

    Also, the story of the gourds and your ornery uncle cracked me up! I will be back to visit often! ;)

  94. Hey there, stopping by to wish you a wonderful weekend. I love it when cool stuff comes in the mail too :) I love opening the mailbox (except when i see bills!)
