Reflections Of My Life

It is interesting what you learn on the net.
I came up with my blog title because I wanted it to be a reflection of me and my life.
I did not know there was a song with the same title but how cool.

Here are the lyrics:

Reflections Of My Life

By Marmalade
The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes
[Repeat: x 2]
The greetings of people in trouble
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes
Oh my sorrows
Sad tomorrows
Take me back to my own home
[Chorus: x 2]
Oh my crying (Oh my crying)
Feel I'm dying, dying
Take me back
to my own home
The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes
I'm changing, arranging,
I'm changing,
I'm changing everything
Everything around me
The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes
The world is
a bad place
A bad place
A terrible place to live
Oh but I don't want to die ...
Here is a little bit about the band:
"Reflections of My Life" was a 1969/1970 hit single for the Scottish band, The Marmalade. It was written by their lead guitarist Junior Campbell, and singer Dean Ford. Released in late 1969, it was the band's first release on Decca following an earlier spell at CBS.



Life has a way of changing on a dime.
It has been an interesting couple of weeks for me.
I was laid off basically from my job and I had to look for another, meanwhile my bills need to be paid.
I worried about my bills and the money to pay them, but I made up my mind I am worrying about things I can not control! God knows all things.
So my husband and I prayed about our issues and put them at God's feet.
I found a place hiring and went and asked how to apply.
I went on line and put app in and did all the things required.
I now have a job and I start on the 14th.

Also through all this my CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) license from Indiana was going to expire this month so I had to get it transferred to Kansas where I live now.
To do this I had to take a 100 question test and get a 75% or higher to pass.
I studied like crazy from a book I ordered online that was 300 CNA Questions for Kansas.
I went to take the test and I was nervous and worried about the questions hoping what I studied would be on it. NONE of what I studied was on this test... OMG I was praying the whole time.


I am thankful for what he has given me and blessed me with. I know he hears all prayers.
I also know he deals with issues his way, we may not like how timely it is or how it ends but
in the end HE knows what we need and deserve.

Always give HIM praise and always turn to him in your time of need, HE will be there.


Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

I am happy to know I am not the only one.

without them being all over the place and easy to find.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When Neva found out about her husbands other life she was shocked! Now he is dead and she must pick up the pieces and go on.
Not only is she facing raising her own children, but now she has three more from he husbands life with another woman.
How are they going to survive?
How will she keep the mercantile?
How will the community react when they find out the truth about her husband?

This was a good read. I could not put it down! I wanted to know how it all would end.
This is a book about forgiveness, hope, and faith in God.
I would recommend this book to anyone that loves historical novels.

I received this complimentary book from Blogging For Books for my honest review and opinions.
