Friday Foto Friends

Just a few photo's for Friday Foto Friends.
Some places we went and things I did the last few days.


We went to the Concord Jubilee Festival on Saturday. My hubby doesn't walk long distances very well so we mostly sat.

Morgan and I got our nails done, and then went out to eat.

For as long as we've been here (2years) the sidewalk in front of our home has been buckled up so bad due to large roots from the large shrubs. We had to walk around it.
I didn't know they were finally getting to our street or I would have gotten a before photo.

They did a good job, so glad it's repaired.

Visited our daughter one day and on our way home stopped by the covered bridge that's halfway between our homes.

Just had to include the sunrise photo my daughter took at her home after returning from taking her 2 children to school. 
I love sunrise and sunset, God shows us His beauty!

Yesterday hubby and I got our flu shots!
Now we have a sore arm and not feeling up to par.
Have you gotten yours yet?

Have a Blessed weekend!

Tea-lightful Thankful Thursday

I am so thankful God woke me this morning!
It's going to be a beautiful day, even if it is Cold!

In reading my daily devotion this morning it made me stop and be thankful for the things in my life.
It told of how all things seems to be going digital.
We don't need to subscribe to magazines, have a Bible or even a TV.  
Technology has it's place and can be good, but for me I like a magazine to hold in my hand and look at when I want to.

My Bible is a very big part of my day and life.
I read it every morning to start my day off right.
I am so Thankful I have it. 

"Thy word have I hidden in my heart"
Psalm 119:11

Reading and meditating on God's word to us, helps when we don't have the bible with us. God can bring a verse to our memory when we need it.

I am Thankful for this day the Lord has given me to enjoy!

Autumn Gold teacup trio

I have been on a low Carb diet for the last 6 months. I am so thankful, with God's help, I have lost 27 lbs. I always knew I should eat healthier, I just didn't do anything about it until I got to a weight I couldn't see me at.
I am also Thankful for my sister Linda and my friend, Jane, and family and friends that has encouraged me. I guess I should say that I'm Thankful for Adkins bars, they fill me and help suppress my desire for sweets!

Have a Blessed Day!
Enjoy and be Thankful we have it!

Thankful Thursday and Back Porch Sitting

Every day the Lord wakes me, I am Thankful!
The sun is shining through my window!
The temperatures has cooled off!
This morning I had lost another pound!

Getting weight off that took years to put it on,
isn't easy.  I am on a low carb diet mostly for 
my health, but I would be lying if I said I didn't 
want to Look better also and fit into my clothes.
It's taken me 6 months to get 26 pounds off.
I am thankful for my sister Linda and my friend,
Jane and my family for their encouraging me!

Yesterday my hubby and I spent most of the afternoon with my friend Jane and her friend Franklin.
Saturday was her birthday. We enjoyed sitting on her screened in back porch.
We had tea and pumpkin pie I had baked for her.

She always decorates for every season.
I took too many photo's to share today so
tomorrow for Friday Foto Friends, I will
try to post the photo's I took of her decorations.

Directions in Life

My favorite verses to go to
when I need directions
on my path of life.

Each day is given to us as a new start, a new beginning.
Do we need to change our way of thinking or just need guidance in making a decision?
Starting it off with prayer and reading the bible, God's word to us, is always a good place to start.

As we trust in God, He directs our steps.

Lord, may I love and serve you with all my heart wherever you lead me today! 

Have a Blessed Autumn Sunday!

I am thankful every day that I have a Savior
to cast my cares and burdens on, for I am not
able to bear them alone!

I am thankful for this day!
Be the reason someone smiles today!

"To everything there is a season, a time to every purpose under the heaven"
Ecclesiastes 3:1

It's Autumn and time for pumpkins.

Lots of churches are filling their grounds with pumpkins, this time of year, like this one in Miami. Children love to come to pick out their favorite ones, to take home with them.

We love to go to Dickey's Farm where they have pumpkins and so much more, in the fall after peach season is over.

Over the weekend, hubby and I drove to see their pumpkin patch and get some of their good ice cream.

I got their peach and hubby got the Butter Pecan.
Don't guess there is a Pumpkin ice cream!

There were pumpkins everywhere,
and Cotton!

 They had wheel barrels full!

They even had WHITE pumpkins!

Of course I do like scarecrows!

Do you have your pumpkins yet?

Have a Blessed Pumpkin Season!
