Gran Jan's Joy = ZEKE

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

I couldn't let 2008 slip away without posting one more time...this year has been one of great joy and God's blessings upon our family. We added two new members - a daughter-in-love, and our first grandchild, a boy. We became empty-nesters and grandparents in a matter of weeks! My oldest son brought Zeke by for a little visit this afternoon. I took Zeke and we went to my reading chair, a very special place to my heart. We read the story of Daniel in the Lion's Den and I told him how I hoped and prayed he would always "dare to be a Daniel." I know he is only 4 1/2 months old, but God's Word is so alive, and I love reading to him already. He was so attentive! I highly recommend this children's bible book, The Jesus Storybook Bible. I look forward to reading to him often in the years ahead. Good night to all, and may 2009 dawn in our lives tomorrow and find us faithful servants to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for He alone is worthy.

Love y'all, Georgia Jan

Excited, Energized, and Eager for Esther!!!

Monday, December 29, 2008

This coming Sunday - January 4th, 2009 - I will begin facilitating the new Bible Study by Beth Moore, "Esther, It's Tough Being a Woman," at my church, and I am excited - ecstatic - eager - energized! I have no idea how many women have signed up - I'll know in just a few days, but this I do know: whoever God chooses to bring to Bible Study will be blessed as she digs deep and determines her destiny.

I know many of you are starting this study soon as well, and some (Jenny Hope!) are already through. I love you all - thank you for your encouragement to me as I began my blog this past summer. 2008 has been full of celebrating for "Gran Jan" and my joy in Jesus is complete. I thank God for my precious grandson and look forward to all God has in store for our family in 2009.

Blessings, Georgia Jan

Christmas on Our Farm

Sunday, December 21, 2008

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE COUNTRY! Come for a visit to our farm, a lot has happened these past 2 weeks!
First, come down the driveway...
Then let's ring the bell and see the new animals born these past few days... First, look at the precious baby donkey on the left below. She is 3 weeks old today and she looks JUST like her mama
(the dark jenny donkey on the left in the first picture)!
Look at the little bull below on the right.
He is only ONE day old in this picture. He looks JUST like his mama too...

And now let's check out some other sites around the farm!
THE PECAN TREES!
Did you know pecans grew on trees? They are being harvested right now!
(I'll post a delicious pecan pie recipe soon.)
THE POND! (Full of bass, catfish, bream and FUN for the children!)
THE SHEEP (Check out the big "shofar" horns on the Ram in the center!)

Now come in our front door for something good to eat, then say goodbye out the back door (back door guests are best)!
and y'all come back now, ya hear?
Merry Christmas and Much Love from Georgia Jan! Emmanuel - God WITH us! Hallelujah & Amen!

Siesta Ornament Exchange 08

Friday, December 12, 2008

This Ornament Exchange has been a wonderful blessing because I had our very own Siesta Patty she had my name - how about that??? Patty is precious and thoughtful and the gifts matched my "season" of life during this Christmas season. She blessed me with a box of goodies. Several ornaments - one that said "Believe" (see it there between Redeemer and Jesus) because she knew I believed God for a grandbaby that wasn't supposed to be here! She also gave me a picture frame that said "M-I-R-A-C-L-E" because that is what I believe happened when Zeke was born against all odds. Thank God He is in control of "all odds." She also sent me a gift card to Hobby Lobby gift card and I applied it toward my new Christmas wreath...I am so proud of myself because I am not a crafty person. Patty introduced me (through her blog) to a drink at Starbucks called a "Caramel Apple Spice" (or is it Cinnamon Apple Spice)? Anyway, she sent me a gift card to Starbucks and I will be able to enjoy this drink several more times thanks to her generosity!!! You know what else I absolutely LOVED? My Christmas card from Patty!!! The back said "Christmas on the Farm" and I live on a farm. (Did you know my card said that Patty???) It is the prettiest card I have received all year. Thank you Patty for your generosity amidst all you have gone through - being sick and the changes in your life. You are a true blessing and I am praying that God will return your giving spirit in ways that only He can do!

Merry Christmas to all, Georgia Jan

Christmas Blessings

Christmas Blessings from Georgia Jan!
2008 has been an amazing year of blessings for our family with TWO new members added! First, a precious daughter-in-love back in June. She is the prayed-for wife of my youngest son (the gorgeous brunette on the far right). A home girl - the best!!! Then on a hot Sunday afternoon in August, God blessed our lives with Zeke (Ezekiel), that precious m-i-r-a-c-l-e bundle, shown here in the safe arms of his granddaddy!
The Joy of Christmas...
Come Christmastime, the treasured gifts are never made of gold. Come Christmastime the best bequests are actually quite "old."
A card arriving from afar with news of something sweet,
a phone call with a greeting from friends just down the street.
A blog post from a siesta with a message from her heart.
Proceeds from a cookbook in which we took a part
to bring fresh water to a land our eyes may never see,
while praying that the Living Water will truly set them free.
The joy of meeting face to face in the August Texas heat,
the event entitled Siesta Fiesta - we couldn't wait to meet!
We are believers in this cyberspace who love the Word of God,
we keep in touch, we love and pray, and read each other's blogs!
May you find some time this Christmas to meditate and pray,
and thank the Heavenly Father for the gifts He sends your way.
The gifts of hope and peace and salvation through His Son,
will warm your hearts and keep you close until the victory's won.
The best of Christmastime is often tried and true,
the prayers and love down in my heart are what I send to you.
Much Love,
Georgia Jan

My Little Butterball Grandboy

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

Good Evening Friends:
Just a quick post to say hello to y'all. My family had a wonderful Thanksgiving - I made a great Caramel Cake (I'll post the recipe soon). The food was good - the fellowship sweet - blessings abound.
It was my little grandson's first Thanksgiving and he was so sweet all day. His bib said "Gobble, Gobble!" He is almost 4 months old now, and is such a little butterball himself. I wanted to gobble up lots of kisses and so that is what I did!
I am so very thankful for this baby boy - he is bringing great joy to us all! As we draw closer to Christmas I can't help but think about the baby who brought JOY and HOPE and PEACE to the world that first Christmas.
That baby was God Incarnate - Emmanuel - God With Us. God robed in flesh - born to die. Hallelujah, what a Savior!
Much Love to You All, Georgia Gran Jan

Soli Deo Gloria "To God ALONE the Glory"

Saturday, November 15, 2008

This beautiful maple tree is all alone in a pasture of evergreens. The name of this tree is "Glory Maple." This is Mr. Glory Maple's first year at our farm and it is showing off! We planted him back in January.
I am re-naming this tree: Soli Deo Gloria! To God Alone be the Glory! For He is the one Who made this tree and all glory is due Him. I love Him because He first loved me and He "planted me" too...and I want my roots to grow deep in Him so that I can truly say, so that I can TRULY say...To God ALONE be the Glory!
So what is it that truly matters to the Lord? The great composer Johann Sebastian Bach signed each one of his masterpieces soli deo gloria...to God alone the glory.”
I met a wonderful woman named Tammy (a.k.a. "Grateful in Georgia") at the Siesta Fiesta back in August, and with whom I bonded in an instant (over Holly's [a.k.a. Crown Laid Down] wonderful cookbook compilation). Tammy and I are the same age, same birthday (one day apart), same JESUS (THE Reason for the instant bond). She wrote a blog post about her life and grandbaby that blessed me so very much this morning. Go here to read it Breaking Free. She is attending the re-taping of Beth Moore's study by the same name. What a powerful post to ascribe to "Soli Deo Gloria." The people of Micah’s day had much the same problem that we see in our lives as believers today. In Micah 6:6-8, the prophet asks a question and then answers it himself.
“With what shall I come before the Lord and bow myself before the exalted God? Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of oil? Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
To Act Justly, To Love Mercy, To Walk Humbly,

Help me Lord,
Soli Deo Gloria, Georgia Jan

R&R IN "YE OLDE SOUTH"

Saturday, November 8, 2008

My sweet husband and I just spent 3 days away for a little R&R (for you non-military types, R&R stands for Rest & Relaxation). It could have been R & R & R & R & R, Rest, Relaxation, Revival, Reconnecting, and ROMANCE :) We had such a wonderrrrrful time! This trip was a gift to us from our church in honor of our 20 years of service there. They are the best congregation in the world and we love them! Anyway, the gift came in June, but since the reservations were good for a year, and we had a BIG-EVENTS summer in our family that included the wedding of our youngest son in June and the birth of our first grandchild in August, we finally just got away this past weekend. We headed out to Savannah Wednesday afternoon. We love Savannah, a very beautiful and romantic city on the coast of Georgia. In fact, it is Georgia's oldest city. Here are some pictures from my weekend...

A huge moss-draped Live Oak tree - St. Simons Island, Georgia
View from our room at the River Street Inn which fronts the Savannah River in the
historic section of Savannah. The hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places
and was built as a cotton warehouse back in the early 1800's.

Another view from the room facing the Savannah River and the riverboats.

These are the ruins of  Fort Frederica which was built back in the early 1700's to protect the coast of Georiga from invasions by the Spanish in northern Florida.

Now this picture below is also in a historic section of Savannah. It is the famous LADY & SONS RESTAURANT and is owned and operated by Paula Deen and her two sons. The food is wonderful and no trip to Savannah is complete without a trip to the Lady & Sons.
Me and Paula Deen!
My sweet husband indulged my love for history and we took the "long way home" and re-routed back by St. Simons Island. One of my favorite authors of all times, Eugenia Price, is buried at Christ Church cemetery. Eugenia wrote many books about Georgia's early history.  They are novels, but she always used "historical characters." I own every book she ever wrote - she was a wonderful Christian woman. Prior to her extensive novels, she wrote many Christian devotionals that have become classics.  I also own all of those and am so proud of my collection!
This is Gary and the famous "Wesley Oak" where John Wesley preached when he came to preach in the newly founded Georgia Colony.
 
Christ Church on St. Simons Island, Georgia
It is absolutely gorgeous and a step back in time with all the huge live oak trees and Spanish moss hanging from them. The cemetery had graves dating back to the early 1800's and it was so peaceful to visit this church and the gardens nearby.

Life is good and I am a blessed woman indeed.  Thank you for sharing my R & R & R & R & R weekend!
~Georgia Jan

Watch and Pray

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

Election Night...2008 I love the old hymn, "Jesus Paid it All." Today I've been singing and meditating on the phrase that says "Child of weakness, watch and pray, find in me thine all in all." I also love the land of my birth, the USA, very much. I have been watching and praying, and claiming this verse from Proverbs 28:2: "When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding, and knowledge, its stability will long continue." I am praying that no matter what the voters decide, we as the body of Christ will rest in the fact that we know and believe that Jesus is the SAME, yesterday, today, and forever! HE is our stability! God Bless the USA! Jan

Plan B is for BOY and BLESSINGS!

Monday, October 27, 2008

Today I am baby-sitting my 2 1/2 month old grandson, Zeke. We are having sweet fellowship. Ezekiel is at that wonderful age where he is smiling and cooing, he is so precious. We have shared some secrets this morning and I have been singing "Great is Thy Faithfulness" to him. He loves it, and oh I can't wait to tell him one day how faithful God was to bless our lives with little Ezekiel Timothy... His father is my oldest son, Jeremy, who is a pastor. Jeremy has to conduct a funeral this afternoon. My darling daughter-in-law is finishing up her master's degree in marriage/family therapy counseling and had appointments that she must attend today. Her mother (the other Grandma who is Plan A and usually babysits) is ministering to the widow of the gentleman whose funeral is this afternoon and helping plan a meal for the family after the funeral. That's what we do here in the South. It is a wonderful blessing to families. So here comes Plan B - ME! The other grandmother - Gran Jan! I am Plan B because I am the mother of the BOY! It is a wonderful place to be, and I just blessed to be babysitting and part of the plan. All you mothers of sons remember that this is also God's Plan as spoken in the book of Genesis "for this cause shall a man LEAVE his father and mother and cleave to his wife..." Boys must leave and cleave and it is all good...trust me. I have raised two fine men and they are wonderful and God has given me two amazing daughters-in-law. I am so very blessed. Because I remember how much I wanted my mother with me when my boys were babies, I am totally okay with being Plan B! I am just blessed to be here and blessed to know the greater joy of God's Plan for this precious grandson. GOD'S PLANS ARE THE BEST OF ALL AND HE HAS A PLAN FOR EVERYONE...and His plans are to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future! Jeremiah 29:11 Rejoicing in His Plan Today, Gran Jan, a.k.a. Plan B for BOY and BLESSINGS

GOLDEN GLOW...

Saturday, October 18, 2008


Gardening is a passion of mine, and one that brings me great peace and joy as I work and think and pray and ponder and just enjoy being outside in the presence of God. I especially love gardening in Autumn!
I love this plant. I think of it as a cultured wildflower of sorts, and have heard it called "Golden Glow," or "Swamp Sunflower," but it's real name is Helianthus Angustifolia. (My name is Jan, but my real name is written down in the Book of Life because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross for me, and my acceptance of His blood atonement for my sins!)
Golden Glow blooms in glorious October and it truly does GLOW with bright yellow flowers.
I am celebrating this year because my Golden Glow has made it's way back home to me...and I am so happy to have it back in my garden. It was first given to me years ago by a precious senior adult woman. I grew it for years and shared cuttings with many others. I gave some to my daughter-in-law's mother and she planted it in her garden. We share a love for gardening and also a new grandson...named Zeke...have I mentioned him lately? :)
When we moved to our farm a year ago, I neglected to bring any Golden Glow from my old garden with me and I really was missing this "Delight" to my soul! This past spring, a friend with whom I had shared some cuttings brought it back to me and now I can start the tradition again. My Mom has already asked for some new plants next Spring, and I will gladly share with her!
Lessons learned:
*Share from the abundance of what you have...
*The blessings will return back to you...
*Get outside and enjoy God's glorious creation...
*Be sure and know what your "real name" is...
*Bask in the GLOW of His Love for you...
Blessings,
Jan

Especially for Holly

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

For my friend Holly from Colorado, vist her here. This wonderful concept is taught in the study, Believing God, by Beth Moore. Visit Beth here. I posted last month about my moonvine that has large white flowers and blooms at night...hence the name "moonflower." I also shared about the fascinating night-time hummingbirds that visit. Holly replied that she was interested in these nighttime creatures, so I told her I would try to send some information. I looked around the world wide web, but the pictures were not really pretty and I wanted to actually TAKE a picture, so I've been waiting! Well tonight during my evening stroll around the garden I heard the familiar "sound" of rapid wings fluttering and my heart skipped a beat...because it has been a long time since I actually saw the nighttime visitors...check it out Holly!!! Can you see this one in flight as well? This was taken just about an hour ago. The night hummingbird (actually a moth) is just above the pink flowers right at the edge of the sidewalk. Here's another view where he is taking off again. I had the absolute best time attempting to take these pictures, all the while thinking how blessed I was to see this "delight." This picture on the left is not great because I was fluttering around myself (what a sight in itself!) trying to take the pictures. The hummingbird moth is right near the window on the far right of the picture. They are quite large. What does all this mean to me? I am reminded that we serve a God who never sleeps or slumbers, He is always awake (Isaiah 40:28). We can rest in Him, because He cares for us. Our God who is up all day and night for ever and ever even created wondrous delights that are up at night too! Now, me personally, I look forward to the day when there will be NO MORE NIGHT - because we will be with Jesus and He is the LIGHT and will SHINE forever and ever, AMEN! Night-night, sleep tight... Love, Jan

Record Keeping

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

Psalm 130: HOPE IN GOD'S FORGIVENESS Have you ever had to cry out to God for forgiveness of your sins? We all have sinned and need that peace and forgiveness that comes when we realize that GOD KEEPS NO RECORDS of our sins - as we cry for mercy from the depths (verse 1) Psalm 130 1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD 2 O Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. 3 If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand? 4 But with you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared. 5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. 6 My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning. Also the waiting time is so hard, as seen in verse 6, as the watchman have to wait for the morning. They know when they see that first light that morning will soon arrive and they can get some much needed rest, so they watch for the morning with great intensity. Lord help us to WAIT upon You and Hope in Your Word alone. Thank You Lord for forgiving us when we cry out to You and ask You. Thank You Lord for not being a record-keeper. Forgive us when we keep records against others. Help us to know how to cry out to You and make a difference for others.

Baby Bulldog

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

My grandson Zeke got a little bored with the UGA football game this past Saturday, so he just took a little nap in Gran Jan's lap...pure SUGAR that's what he is...I am absolutely smitten. He wore his jersey during the game...he will be 1 month old tomorrow and we are still praising Jesus for the miracle of this baby. Love y'all, Georgia Gran Jan

Peace of Mind

Thursday, September 11, 2008

Peace of mind is a matter of choice,
choosing to listen to that Still Small VOICE.
Not relying on feelings – not surviving by might,
living by faith and not by sight!
Clinging to the good – avoiding the wrong,
ignoring the NOISE, embracing the SONG!
Trusting completely, believing the best,
escaping the turmoil, restored and at rest.
Seeking God's guidance on each journey I start,
submitting my will and surrendering my heart.
Thankful in all things, content by His Grace,
claiming his Glory in whatever I face.
Seeking Him daily assured I will find,
joy in my journey – and sweet peace of mind!
By Randy Vader, Praise Gathering Music

Moonflowers...I LOVE them!

Friday, September 5, 2008


I love gardening...besides spending time with my men-folks (husband, sons, grandson) and my girls (daughters-in-law), it's my most favorite thing to do. Gardening is pure therapy for me...and much cheaper...unless I've been to the Lowe's Garden Center!
Have you ever seen a moonflower? Well they are wonderful and I grow them from seed every year! They grown on a beautiful vine and the foliage is heart-shaped. The flowers are spectacular, about 6" across, lightly scented, and they are white with a "star" in the center. They begin to bloom at dusk...when the day is winding down.

One of my favorite authors, Jan Karon wrote a wonderful book entitled The Trellis and the Seed, a book of encouragement for all ages. It is all about waiting for a moonflower to bloom, it is delightful.
I just wanted to share some gardening joy today. I'm sorta like those moonflowers in that I am not a morning person (or a morning glory)! I begin to wind up when the day is winding down myself. Maybe that's why I love these flowers so much. There's nothing sweeter that sitting in my back porch swing and enjoying the moonflowers blooming. Did you know there's even a night-time hummingbird? Oh yes there is...I'll save that for another post!

Siesta Fiesta - Beth Moore!

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

What a suprise to find this picture in the group of pictures that Rich (awesome photographer for Lifeway) took during the Siesa Fiesta! I was plum tickled and blessed because it was such a sweet, brief moment and I had no idea it was being captured for me...I was simply telling Beth that I loved her - she has meant so much to my life. (I believe our brief meeting at Deeper Still in Atlanta back in June jogged her memory when she saw me walking across the floor at the Alamodome Saturday afternoon as she hugged me and said "Georgia Jan." I attended that amazing conference with my dear friend, who just happens to be the wife of the Governor of Georgia and her VIP treatment washed over on me, a very un-VIP person, however favored I was that weekend.) So Georgia Jan is a blessed woman indeed. Thank You, Father. God has used the faithfulness of Beth Moore to encourage my heart...as she also encouraged and inspired untold thousands of women around the world. The Bible studies she writes are amazing, her poetry is precious. Her encouragement, her sense of humor and quick wit are priceless (and I especially love, love, love, when she goes into that "Arkansas twang" and talks...cracks me up every time). The truths and reaffirmations of being an heiress - and not a boring one - were so tender. A poignant hit-home truth was that my intimacy with God will never never replace ministry. As Women's Ministry Director at my church, may I say, help me Lord! Also, any place that God is not occupying - the devil has...my oh my. This was a great trip, however a very quick trip! God gave me and Deborah (Twinkle) favor from the moment we left Georgia in the wee hours early Friday morning until we flew home Saturday evening with the remants of Hurricane Fay's rain welcoming us! I left with a divided heart, as my first-born's firstborn came into our lives just five days before I flew out to Texas. But little Zeke is precious and was in the care of his mommy's love, my sweet daughter-in-love. What a joy to meet so many Siestas - to hug their necks, to pray with them, worship alongside them, and to just laugh and have fun. God is so good and His Spirit was ever-present. Hallelujah and Amen - what a great trip.
Georgia Jan...aka Gran Jan :)

ZEKE Arrived...He is a Sunday's Child...How Fitting

Sunday, August 24, 2008


Zeke Arrived last Sunday...
What a day it was. He is beautiful and all you grandmothers out there who told me there is "nothing like it" were so right. What an amazing gift. Ezekiel means "God is Strong." God showed Himself strong by bringing this little boy into our lives. We prayed him in...and we are claiming him - he is already turning our lives in and out and up and down. And we are loving every minute...stay tuned...more from Gran Jan to follow...:)


Still Waiting...

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

We are still waiting on Zeke-man's arrival! No signs of labor yet - but full of faith and hope as we await the blessed event. I am beyond myself...can't wait for all that being Gran Jan will entail...it should be within the next week... I'll let you know - you will hear me "holler!" :)

Hope Deferred

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

Well, Zeke is snug as he can be and there are no signs of his coming yet (unlike the signs of our Lord's coming - hallelujah!)... God is so good and I am already so in love with this little grandboy, I can hardly wait to see him. (I can hardly wait to see my Savior most of all)... Proverbs 13:12 says "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but the desire fulfilled is a tree of life." Waiting and waiting for this grandbaby has made my heart sick - but knowing the desire is soon to be filled has made me think about another "tree of life," and that is our family tree. Because it is growing and this precious little boy will be the beginning. My Sunday night Bible study ladies gave me a "Gran Jan" Wal-Mart gift card Sunday night. I was so surprised and so excited. The wise sages (already Grands) in my class told me that I will need baby things at my house...I jumped for joy! Thank you for reading - be encouraged - be blessed - for the joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10).

Waiting Room

Thursday, July 24, 2008

Well, just a few more days until I will become Gran Jan. I am beyond excited - for this has been a long journey...not only for me - but even more so for little Zeke's parents - my first-born son and his precious wife. While they waited for a baby, I was waiting for a grandbaby, and when I quit asking God for the baby - and began praying for His will, the peace came - and so did the pregnancy (in that order). It came out of my time at the "Deeper Still" conference in Nashville, Tennesse in September of 2007. God used His Word and the words from sweet Beth Moore to minister to my heart, calm my spirit, and give me the assurance to pray for His Will - whatever that meant. The story is miraculous, and after a failed adoption (of triplets), the conception came - when we least expected it to come. Isn't that just like our Father? While we are in the waiting room, He is busy all around us, preparing, working, teaching - being God. My heart is full of joy today, and I am so thankful to my heavenly Father for His peace, and that out of the waiting time for the past 3 years, I will soon be in a real-live waiting room...as I wait for the birth of my first grandchild.

A Well-Watered Soul...
soon to be...
