My Week of Blessings








Another week has gone by and it has been 
raining everyday.
Didn't get out much since I don't like driving
in it.

Sunday after having Father's Day lunch out with family,
we went back to my daughter's for desert.

My granddaughter has a cat that loves to play with a sucker.
Now most cats play with a toy, but not "Tiny"
She loves to play with a tiny sucker.


She will kick it around and carry it in her mouth,
never trying to eat it. She thinks it's a toy!



You can throw it down the hall and she will fetch it.






Monday my hubby had a doctor's appointment,
so it being in the town where my sister lives we got to spend some time together afterward.


This is Lexie, I told you about her last week here.

It's always a blessing to spend time with family.


Tuesday I did venture out to visit with my friend
Jane. She prepared a tea for us.





Friends are a blessing, also.
When I count my blessings, I always count my friend, Jane.


Wednesday and Thursday, there were thunder storms,
so I still inside all day.

Today I hope the rain will be gone and we can get out some.
The rain is a blessings also, we do need it.

That's about it for this week, join me over at
Breathing in Grace for Friday Foto Friends.






Have a Day of Blessings

A Friend and Friendship Tea








Tuesday my friend Jane, invited me to tea at her home.
We have been friends for 25 years,
and shared many fun, sad and happy times.

Even though it was raining and I don't like driving in the rain,
I drove the 40 minute drive to her home.
It's always a treat to visit her. She is a great and fun hostess.




We had our Lunch on her back screened in porch.

Chicken salad





A slice of fresh tomato,
and fruit.











Cucumber sandwich.


Lemonade




I tried to get a photo of the rain, but it just wouldn't show.

I had a cucumber sandwich for the first time,
and to my delight, it was good.
The cucumber came from her friends garden.






Banana nut cake! 


Tiny Lemon cakes


Of course, we had Tea!







After several hours of laughing together and good food,
and Tea, it was time for me to go.






" Ointment and perfume
rejoice the heart,
so doth the sweetness of a 
man's friend gives delight..."

Proverbs 27:9

FRIDAY FOTO FRIENDS








Recently we spent an afternoon with my sister, 
Linda and her husband Jack. We enjoyed sitting on her back deck.

The sky was a baby blue with cotton ball clouds.


Her poodle, Lexie, decided she wanted us to play ball with her. 





She will hold one ball in her mouth and with her nose push the other one to you so you can throw it.












Isn't she cute.






When the sun got a little hot for us, we went to the front porch.




We enjoyed porch sitting and chatting until we had to leave.






The clouds were just a pretty in the front, but for some reason they didn't show up in the photo.

Good Morning Thankful Thursday







Good Thursday Morning!

Today is a new day, full of new things
to be thankful for. I am thankful I woke up.
To lift my eyes upward and praise God for his faithfulness!

" I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from where my help comes".
"My help comes from the Lord, which made heaven and earth".
Psalms 121:1-2




Have a Blessed Day!

Monday Breakfast on the Porch




I've started this on Facebook, where I have my tea on the porch.
It's fun to read all the comments from friends
that love tea or coffee and what kind they are drinking.
I do drink coffee but for now I am trying to cut back on it.





I am also trying to cut back on my sweets, breads, potatoes and pasta.
I have lost 7 lbs and am stuck there,
if anyone has any suggestion on how to get to losing again,
I sure would love to hear them. 





This morning with my breakfast of cheese eggs and bacon,
I had Scripture Tea.
The scripture on the tea tag was:

"Cast all your cares on Him, for he cares for you".
1 Peter 5:7

Yesterday afternoon my 12 year old grandson,
got to play his guitar,
with a real live band, as his recital.
He kept up with them and did a great job,
only to have been taking lessons for a short time.
I had a photo, but for some reason google decided
to mess up and wouldn't post it! 😞


Have  a Blessed Day!

Thankful Thursday











I am so thankful for this day and the blessings
that have been given to me.

Today 21 years ago I became a grandmother for the first time.
My grandson is very special to me,
he's always ready to help and do want he can at 
any time.

I am thankful for my family and friends!
They encourage and support me!

I am thankful for this day, the sun is shining and
all is good!





Enjoy this day and be Blessed!

It's Wednesday, Keep Climbing













"Climb 'Till Your 
Dreams Come True"


Often your tasks will be many
And more than you think you can do...
Often the road will be rugged
And the hills insurmountable, too...
But always remember, the hills ahead
are never as steep as they seem,
And with Faith in your heart start upward
And climb 'til you reach your dream,
For nothing in life that is worthy
is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the courage to try it
And you have the Faith to believe...
For Faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill
And many defeats turn to triumph
If you trust in God's wisdom and will...
For Faith is a mover of mountains,
There's nothing that God cannot do,
So start out today with Faith in your heart
And "Climb 'Til your Dream Come True"!

...If thou can believe, 
all things are possible
to him that believeth.
Mark 9:23







This is one of my favorite verses, it helps me stay focus on Who is in Charge.


Have a Blessed Day!
