Thankful Thursday March 24, 2016, Sofa table gussied up for Easter



For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall
 not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16




Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you have had a really
 great week.........


Been a really good week here,
really enjoying Spring!!


Did a lil Easter Decorating last week,
so thought I would show you the Sofa
Table today.


Sorta busy today so just gonna jump 
right in..............



I am thankful


#1
that it is Spring.... and that Easter
is this weekend. Easter is my 2nd
 favorite holiday  with  Christmas
being my first...................



Remember I said I bought myself an
 early birthday present...well, this is one
 of the watercolor pictures....they are
matching and you will see the other
one later ................



#2
for Easter, now I love all the cuteness 
of the bunnies, chicks and Easter eggs
I have to say,  but I am so glad that 
I know the real reason for the season. 
 That Jesus died on
a cross for my sins and your 's and then
 rose again on the 3rd day, to give new
 life to those that believe in Him, and
want to spend eternity in Heaven with
Him............ according to John 3:16
 in the Bible............

 That would be me,  how about you??
Something to think about!!





#3
that my SIL Susan is feeling so much
better and so quickly too.  There was
a medicine overload and as soon as
she cut back she was fine.....and has
continued to feel better. We were all
very happy about that to say the least.





Decided to change the happy Easter
sign to this lil bunny.......just seemed
to fit with the rest of it.



#4
for a long conversation with a
past neighbor who just lost her
hubby just over a week ago.  I
had not heard about it.......they
would have been married 53 yrs.
 this coming June, you don't hear
 that too much these days.
Was so glad she called as She 
 is a sweet lady, and we will be
 getting together soon.


#5
that we have gotten to work in
the front yard a number of times
this week, and have loved every
minute of it....feels so great to
be outside doing that!! 
and making the yard look nice
again.............






 #6

for sitting in the sunshine.
It felt delectable, and was a
clear, not a cloud in sight azure
 blue sky day.  So Beautiful, a
great way to kick off Spring....



#7
for banana pudding..........I made
it again this passed weekend and put
some strawberries in it this time.
Loved it...............








#8
a fun time on Sunday having dinner
with the family..........and celebrating
Spring, amongst some other things
I will tell you about soon.



#9
for all my neighbors beautiful azalea
bushes, they have been there for over
35 years ( 6 of them) , and they are
 large and gorgeous and a feast for the
 eyes every time we look out our front
windows......they are that purply
pink color...........so lovely!!

She said she must have scared them, 
because she was gonna cut them all 
down cause she thought they looked 
so scraggly about a month ago, and 
did do one of them.  so we were
laughing and saying I guess they
did get scared and thought we better 
get blooming or we are goners.....lol







#10
for my "Magic bullet" that provides
me so many wonderful smoothies,
especially this time of the year!


#11
that Netflik got the HGTV chanel
so now we can watch Chip and 
Joanna Gaines on Fixer Upper.
One of my fav HGTV shows.




Side table

#12
for You....Sweet Friends, for all
your encouragement, inspiration,
and creativity.  You help make 
life fun.......each of you in your
own way.................


++++++++++++++++++++

always good to know you came
by........and hope you say hello.


Hope you have a really lovely
weekend and Easter with those
you hold dear................

Easter Blessings to you
