Some linky party love

Simple Pleasures and Thankful Thursday are today…seems like I was just writing my post for last week and here we are another week down the road.  I’m a bit late getting this up this morning, I have been taking care of some other computer business…  (time got away from me).

simple pleasureFirst one up is Simple Pleasures@ A Collection of this and that with our hostess Dayle.

 magazines_tabbed Ya’ll may think my simple pleasure is silly this morning….but it is magazines…. I love them, and believe me if you look around my house, you will know it too.  Let’s see, with trying to declutter I have thrown away 2 huge moving boxes full of magazines I have saved since the late 80’s.  Yep, you heard me right.  Well it is hard to part with my Country Living and Southern Living.  But I did, and hubby was relieved. But I digress…the reason they are a simple pleasure for me is because it is a cheap way for me to escape and daydream, as well as gather useful information to help make my home run more smoothly.  Tips and tricks that others have tried.  I love trying new things to see if they work for me. 

Do your magazines look like this, mine do.  All tabbed up.  There is so much clever advice and tips in them and I can’t retain it all, so I tab them for future use.  However, I don’t do so well in keeping them all in one place, so when I move, I am making it a point to do this with them. Granted it might take a whole room to organize them all, but  I’m just sayin……


Now onto Thankful Thursday hosted by Laurie @ Women taking a stand.


Since we are on the topic of books (I mean magazines are books, right?)  I am thankful for this book. Bible front view

My bible!  It is the holy inspired word of God.

It  is the basis for the way I live my life, or at least try to.  It gives me in the instructions on how to live. 

I am thankful for the opportunity to study my bible without fear of persecution . I am also thankful that I can start my day off with quiet time with my Lord.  God gives us so much in HIS word. For that I am thankful too.

Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.
Jesus loves me! This I know,
As He loved so long ago,
Taking children on His knee,
Saying, “Let them come to Me.”
Jesus loves me when I'm good,
When I do the things I should,
Jesus loves me when I'm bad,
Though it makes Him very sad.
Jesus loves me still today,
Walking with me on my way,
Wanting as a friend to give
Light and love to all who live.
Jesus loves me! He who died
Heaven’s gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.
Jesus loves me! Loves me still
Tho' I'm very weak and ill;
That I might from sin be free
Bled and died upon the tree.
Jesus loves me! He will stay
Close beside me all the way;
Thou hast bled and died for me,
I will henceforth live for Thee.

Romans 12:4-5“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”

  1. Wow! I am in awe of your organizational skills. (Can you come do that in my house? :)
    Blessings to you!

  2. I'm with you on the magazines. I get totally lost. I learned to read by looking at all kinds of magazines.
    This is a good simple pleasure.

  3. Magazines are a great escape. I used to have more than I could handle, dated from no telling when, but I gave up that little habit a few years ago. I miss them. :(

  4. Oh my goodness! Your organization has me floored! I love it! (But it's something I can only dream of...) Love magazines though. They give me the sense of accomplishing some reading without having to commit to a novel. Perfect simple pleasure!

  5. Hi Cindy, I love magazines and have kept lots of them over the years,especially the holiday issues. I wish mine were organized like yours. Great tip!!

    And like you my Bible is my mainstay, I don't know what I would do without it. Thanks for sharing, I was so blessed. I was going to post on TT, but just got to busy.
    Enjoy your evening.

  6. I love stumbling upon blogs that profess the love of Christ. Thank you for your post! It's been awhile since I've heard all the verses to that song!

  7. Happy Thankful Thursday! You have a wonderful blog!!!

  8. I love my magazines and save them too. However, I have never seen them organized like yours. I'm so inspired!

    I think the reason that I like blogland so much is that it is so like reading a magazine. Don't you think?

    And your thankful post is wonderful too. I am so thankful to be able to read my Bible openly without persecution. I'm also thankful that a humble gal like me has access to the very thoughts of God through that book.

    Great post. I'm glad that I finally got a chance to finish checking out all the simple pleasures. It is my favorite blog day of the week by far.

  9. I still get excited, witnessing piles of magazines ... teasing to be read, then re-read.
    I unloaded a HEAP when we moved, figuring I could just as easily find information on the web ... nope, it's not the same.

  10. Although I am totally inspired by so many in blogland, there is still nothing that can replace a good book or a magazine. I still need to hold something solid in my hands, something real and not virtual. I will start my own inspiration journals, only keeping those photos or tips and articles that inspire and donate the rest of the magazine to our Trash to Treasures program where ladies at Embassy shelters fashion ornaments and beads from the pages. Hope you have a fabulous Friday. :) Tammy

  11. I am ever so thankful for the bible! Great post.


  12. I enjoy a good magizine too! for the longest time I have about 5 years worth of Marth Stuart Living saved, I finally gave them away! Yours are so neatly stored, love it! Dee Dee

  13. Cindy,
    What a great Simple Pleasures post! I would never have thought of magazines but they ARE simple pleasures aren't they? I only read them in doctor's offices though I have kept some of my Victoria Mags!

  15. Loved your post, thanks for linking up with us at Thankful Thursday. Your magazine stack is amazing and how organized you are. I am truly impressed and even more impressed that your number one book is His book! Thanks for sharing! -Blessings.

  16. I see Food and Wine in your pile. I have been considering subscribing to it and it looks like you have a lot of book-marks in it. Perhaps it is time.

  17. Loved your Thankful Thursday!!! Thank you for stopping by my blog :) God bless you!


Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.(Proverbs 16:24)
