Thankful Thursday August 4, 2016, Coastal tablescape from the past

































So then, just as you received Christ Jesus
 as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 

 rooted and built up in him, strengthened
 in the faith as you were taught, 
and 
overflowing with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:6-7  NIV


Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope it has been a good week

at your house.  I suspect many
of you are getting children ready
to go back to school and trying to
 get in a lil more family fun before
 the new school year begins.

It has been a good week here,
more activity that usual as you
will read.
 Our lil darling will be starting
 preschool soon too.  Hard to 
imagine that she is old enough
for that already.  We had her
on Wed. and Thursday this
week, and will continue to
have her on Wednesdays for
the next year at least. Very
happy about that,  as I love
having that time with her.

Decided to include some pics 
of a Coastal Table since we are
 still in the summer season..............
I did this one some years back......
If you would like to see the
 original post just click here

Hope it inspires you to do a fun
 coastal table before the summer
 is over.


Now, on with Thankful Thursday.


I am thankful


#1
for an adorable read and pictures
on yahoo, of a police officer having
a tea party with a 2 yr. old toddler
that he saved a year before as she
was choking on a penny..........
He is now friends with the family
and has a special bond with the
lil one..........So sweet!
Wonderful to see with all the
 police negativity these days.






#2

for a fun Friday evening with a
 young couple from our class that 
we are sort of mentoring. They
 are such a sweet young couple
 and newly weds as well.........
Very happy to know them.






#3

for a fun time at a baby shower
for another young lady from our
young marrieds class. It was really
 fun time visiting with others and
honoring the mom to be, she got 
so many nice things.
It is also the same couple I told
you about last week,  I think it
was,  that got the big answer
to prayer about his job.






#4
 for a really fun time with lil darling
 on Sat. as well.  She got to spend 
the night and it has been awhile but
 she did very well and she even slept
in till about 8:20 or so,  and Mom and
 Dad says she never does that at home. 
 Truthfully was quite surprised as I
 thought she would be up by 6:30 
myself.............






#5
that 2 students from our class
returned this week, as they have
been MIA for a lil while. So
we were all happy about that
as they have been missed!!







#6
 for our usual Sunday routine of
Sunday School, church, frozen
yogurt run, and quick stop at the
 grocery store, and  especially a
nice long afternoon nap, as I was
 bushed from all that fun and
 activity of the whole weekend.
A fun bushed.........but bushed!








#7
that Dee and Jerry  made it home
safe and sound from Charleston, 
S.C.,  as they went there for the
 weekend to see how they like
the place.

#8
for my favorite and delicious fruit
 smoothies I have been making this
 week for breakfast,  I seem to have
so much energy after I drink one.
Just in case you are  interested
  Here is the recipe, 
 Since I posted that recipe I have
 been adding a container of vanilla 
oikos greek yogurt to it,  to give
me more protein.......






#9
for Kemp's "Moose Tracks frozen
yogurt.  It is um um good!!  Love
it in a sugar cone........yummy!





#10
for a beautiful silver blue sky with 
wispy cirrus clouds, that I saw as I 
was riding the mower while cutting
 the grass on Wednesday evening.
Breathtakingly Beautiful!

#11
for our home and what a haven
of peace and solace it is for us,
and I hope for others as well.

#12
that I have been able to exercise
again without any problems with
my back..........thanks heavens!!
Cause my scales just keep going
up, up, up...........
So I need all the help I can get!!  lol

#1. I pray more support stories would come out on our officers who protect us 24/7!
#2. Family, friends, church and GOD in the middle and surrounding us all! Praise His Name!
#3. "There shall be showers of blessings..."
#4. Talking about waking time, I in the last week have been waking up at 5:30 in the morning. No matter how still and quiet I stay, the dogs and cats know I'm awake! They come over to the bed snorting with joy and on the bed meowing with happiness, I just have to get up, ha!
#5. Praise the LORD. I pray the Holy Spirit directed them to come and keep on coming!
#6. I usually stop by Wendy's, go home and eat the Chili and Frosty with the dogs watching me and wagging their tails. I watch the old westerns on the t.v. and sometimes fall asleep too!
#7. I pray they will soon call S. Carolina their home!
#8. Yummy, I bet the yogurt really makes it delicious!
#9. I'll have to try it!
#10. What a great blessing of rain yesterday afternoon! Thank goodness Steve/Christine got the yard mowed in the morning.
#11. Yes, Amen, what a haven of rest the LORD has provided for us!
#12. I'm walking so much better now that I get the walking exercise in. My weight has been holding, Praise the LORD!
I love you all, Susan

Rebecca said...

Makes ME happy to hear all of YOUR beautiful moments :)
Have a great weekend.

Nellie's Cozy place said...

Thanks Rebecca, you're so sweet.
Hope you are doing okay...........

After my MIL passed..... because I was over there
daily, and just looking out for everything to do with
her for a year and a half..... that it was like
I felt a lil lost at first, like what do I do now......... I even went back
over to the Nursing facility to visit her caregivers as we had made
a lot of friendships there too, I went 3 times none of her caregivers
were there, and I thought that veryodd......so the 3rd time I felt like the Lord
said your time here has ended. So wondering if you are feeling a bit of that
now too.

Praying for you and your family hon, and thanks for coming by......
and for your sweet comments.....

Blessings Abundant, Nellie

Cheryl said...

Morning Susan,
I actually saw another good story about a policeman later this week, who delivered someones
baby because they couldn't get to the hospital in time, and the couple had a pic of the baby
taken and she was swaddled and they had the policemans badge laying on her. They took the
pic to give him something to remember the event by..........

Oh Wow, 5:30 is way too early, that is like having a baby in the house, course some mornings
I get up that early for one reason or another but them I got back to sleep in about an hour.

Thanks for coming by and for all your comments..........Have a good weekend.

Love, Nellie

Nellie's Cozy place said...

always an encouragement to me as well..........So Thanks to you as well.
