Yes, it can also be found at http://bevie2u2.blogspot.com but most of you choose He Lives rather than checking out the second blog which is where I post the most...please know that I've been so blessed to have all of you following this blog...but think you will also enjoy the other one...so here's hoping you won't mind switching over when you find this message and just give My Creative World a chance!!!
This is in no means disrespectiful to my love for the Lord...I will just be combining the two!!! (((hugs)))

Although there is still some snow on the ground from the Blizzard of Feb. we had the most wonderful weekend enjoying not only bright sunny days, but it reached up into the 60s both days. Our weekend ride took us further up in the mountains of WV where I found some wonderful sights to capture with my little camera. I still marvel at the fact that there's nothing more beautiful than nature (what I like to refer to as Eye Candy from God!) So may I share some of what we saw?

These are our precious little pugs, Napoleon, Sadie,and Wrinkles. All this snow has really put a damper on their ability to roam free in the back yard...now they have a lone path my dh did with the snow blower! Sadie is the little quiet one until she sees a squirrel...then the hair jumps up on her back, and the barking starts...Wrinkles would pipe in now and then for his thing is a CAR...Now that we've added Napoleon all three of them are barking away when a squirrel appears...Not thinking I put a bird seed block on the back deck and low and behold what did I find out there eating away the past 2 days, yep a squirrel. Most of them stay beyond the fence knowing Sadie will chase them, but this little guy was determined to get his belly full...As I opened the back door for the dogs to go out this morning all three ran out barking their heads off..ehehehe!!! That little guy was already up on the deck eating....as he ran across the high snow piles Napoleon decided he'd take a shortcut....sure, up he went to the top of the snow that is about 5 ft tall...he didn't sink thank God..for could you just see ME trying to get him out??? NOT
So they have really had their exercise today...running up and down the path first after the little guy, then after those remained behind the fence!!!
Isn't it amazing how just little things can bring such joy to our hearts?? I love it!!!
Hope you weren't bored...and I"m not going to proof read it so excuse the mistakes..eehehhe~~~
I can't tell you how much this awesome sight touched my heart and spirit! As you know we've been surrounded by so much snow, and not much sun...well it was actually Sunday this morning as I headed for the front deck with my first cup of coffee...I don't go anywhere without my camera so when I opened the front door to take a peek at the birds singing while filling their little bellies I was greeted with just a touch of that golden light off in the distance! I turned on my camera, and got the first shot (there were actually 6 in all.ehehe) I breathed in the cool morning air as I sipped my coffee waiting for the sun to rise more thinging to myself, "God you give us so much, things that money can't buy" and I thank you so much for providing for us. Right???

This has been a record snow for Feb in many years..today there is blizzard conditions with snow drifts up to 6 feet...Yikes...I'm staying in where it's warm, and thank God we haven't lost electricity at all...our daughter, Lisa has several times so dh took a oil heater over yesterday incase they loose it again...I pray for all those who've been without for days even a week since the last storm. At least we can put our food in the snow if we lose power. Hubby is still sore and tire from shoveling all the snow off the roof yesterday. Living in an old doublewide there were concerns as to the roofs stability...now at least the blowing winds will help get ride of new fallen snow!!!
Please all those in the path of this storm be safe, don't overdue and stay warm

This is what I woke to yesterday morning! The birds were flying up into the trees causing the snow to fall every which way making it a joy to watch..they were swooping down for feed we'd put out for them. God brings us much beauty to see doesn't he? The next snow is due around noon tomorrow. Washington DC is supposed to get about a foot, but up here in the mountains North of there we could get far more...We are ready even if we can't get out for days. I pray for all those in the path of this storm that they be safe and ready. Ahhh are you ready for the biggest event yet to come??? I pray also for those who haven't chosen to receive God's awesome gift of life with HIM for all eternity...think about it it could be tomorrow or next week...we all need to be prepared...It's the most important decision in our lives...Blessings!!!

It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them. (George Eliot)
And I still haven’t found what I’m looking for. (U2)
There is a secret set within each of our hearts. It often goes unnoticed, we rarely can put words to it, and yet it guides us throughout the days of our lives. This secret remains hidden for the most part in our deepest selves. It is simply the desire for life as it was meant to be. Isn’t there a life you have been searching for all your days? You may not always be aware of your search, and there are times when you seem to have abandoned looking altogether. But again and again it returns to us, this yearning that cries out for the life we prize. It is elusive, to be sure. It seems to come and go at will. Seasons may pass until it surfaces again. And though it seems to taunt us, and may at times cause us great pain, we know when it returns that it is priceless. For if we could recover this desire, unearth it from beneath all other distractions, and embrace it as our deepest treasure, we would discover the secret of our existence.
Reading from the Ransomed Heart.
I am in awe that it took so long for me to realize just how much I've felt this yearning in my heart...but because I "had" to be in control I continued to think I could make things happen. I pray each day that my Heavenly Father will continue to tear the masks away that have hidden the true me...I'm as if born anew again realising it's only by stopping and LISTENING to my Father's voice can I have true peace. Letting go is hard for some especially me, but I have...it's wonderful to go to HIM knowing he hears my heart. I know God created me for HIM...he loves me so much and has for 60 some years been trying to reach me. He's been doing a good work in me for the past year and I'm so very thankful

So I'm sitting here thinking I need to get up and talk a little walk on the deck to get a good dose of Vitamin D...it only takes 15 mins to get your daily requirement!!! Did you know that??? That's what Dr OZ says..hehehe!!! I'm in a very happy joyious mood today. Things can be off in other areas, but feeling the warmth from the Sun makes me think of my heavenly Father...well so many things do, how about you??? What brings the Face Of our Father to your mind?? I think of him most of the day really....I see all his creations around me and I feel his love inside me. It's wonderful to know he's inside me and around me filling me with HIS grace and Love!!!
We are truly blessed aren't we?? Blessings for a wonderful day.
Please remember to give what you can to our Red Cross or wherever you normally give when tragic hits our neighbors. (((hugs)))
