Thankful Thursday May 19, 2016, Beautiful pics of our world

Consider how the wild flowers grow. 
They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, 
not even Solomon in all his splendor
 was dressed like one of these.
Luke 12:27

Greetings Sweet Friends,

So... how  are  you  today ??

Doing well I hope!!

I am late again.....this time it really
 wasn't my
Microsoft decided to download 
Windows 10 (without our asking for
 it), to my computer and we didn't want
 that, so we had to shut my computer
 down until hubby could figure out if 
there was a way to get it off.  He did
some research and found there was
an app that takes it off.  Shew!
So he did that and I am back in
business again!  Thank heavens
my hubby knows what to do or
I would be sidelined as far as
the computer goes..........
It was good I was late, cause late
last night, I got a wonderful email
from a friend of ours with all these
lovely pictures, so thought they
were perfect to share on Thankful

How about my header pic......
sure looks like an Angel, doesn't it?

The heavens
 declare the glory of God;
 the skies
 proclaim the work of his hands.
Psalm 19:1 NIV

So on with it...............

I am thankful

that the Lord let me see something
that looked like a long pc. of grass
in my living room as I passed by
on the way to the computer room.
It was a small snake and he looked
 like he was dead, and hubby had
just run to his sisters house to take
something so I called him to come
home before he went to pick up a
pizza.  Well, before he could get
here, it popped it's head up, so I
knew for sure it wasn't dead, so
 thankfully I remembered this
 happening to my SIL Susan, and she 
used one of those grabber things, and
 we have one too, thank the Lord.  So
 I ran and got it, and by the time I got
back he was starting to move. (Now
 you have to know that I am scared to 
death of snakes and it doesn't matter
 how big or lil or if they are poisonous
 or not) So he was starting to crawl
and I thought Nellie you better grab
him or he is gonna be lost in this
house, so I went after him with the
grabber and after a lil chase, I caught
him and took him outdoors. I thought
 I was gonna have a heart attack, my 
heart was beating so fast, took about 
15 mins. to calm down, so that was
 my feat of bravery for the year!!  lol
and hubby came in right after I got
rid of, so I told him
guess you can go on and get the
pizza now....Crisis over!!
Guess the Lord knew I needed
some stretching.....I am very thank-
ful it was a small snake and that
the Lord gave me the courage to
go after it...........

for a very long phone conversation
with a good friend that I have not
seen in quite a while, as she has just
had so much going on in her life
these days. So it was really great to
have some time to talk with her.   

that our kitty is still alive and has
improved quite a bit in most ways and
 has been eating, so she is doing okay
 as she had about 3 or 4 strokes this past 
weekend and we thought we were gonna 
have to have her put to sleep, but so far,
 she is doing way better than we ever
 could have imagined at this point. 
 This cat truly does have 9 lives.....
Unfortunately tho, it has made her
vision worse, so that she is running
 into things now and seems confused. 
 Which would be normal if you can
 hardly see. So now we are walking her
 on the leash like when we go to Ashe-
ville. Thank goodness our trips have
gotten her used to that, and I think
it makes her feeling safer hopefully.
It is hard to know what to do.......
cause her quality of life is sad, but
 she is still eating and seems deter-
mined to live and doesn't seem to be
suffering physically, so we feel bad to
 have her put down just for our con-
venience.  So we pray that the Lord 
will take her if she is suffering and 
we are unaware or that he will
make us aware if she is............

that we finally found a bed frame to go 
around our adjustable bed at a great 
price with no shipping charges, and
 should be getting it by early June.
  Then we can finally get our bedroom 
completely back to normal, as I have
 not rehung pictures in the bed area,
cause I am not sure where to put
 them yet. This has been such a 
process............but well worth it.

that I rec'd my new keyboard and
mouse a few days ago, and am
really enjoying them both. No
more skipping on the keyboard
or trying to find letters and no
more wires.  Works for me!!  lol


for the hopeful news from the
endodontist on Tuesday.

for take out from Texas roadhouse
on Wed. night......every bite was
delicious....and always so nice
not to have to cook after a long
day playing with lil darling.

for some homemade cinnamon
Kefir my sweet son made and
brought us today.  It is really good!!
 My daughter and I think he is just
such an interesting and brilliant
guy......he loves reading and
 learning and trying new things......
I am happy to say!
Hopefully he will instill that
into lil darling as well.

for a delicious lunch of diced 
red ripe juicy tomatoes with
italian bread and butter and
a glass of milk.  Can't remember
the last time I have had that ....
it was perfectly delicious....
and healthy as well.  Yum!

that my new crown prep has been
 delayed until after the endodontist
 says everything is healed completely.
  So I have a month reprieve......
So that is nice........although for once
 I was geared up to get her
Go figure!  lol

that hubby brought home yummy
bagels from has
been a while......and they smell
so heavenly, can't wait for break-
fast in the morning.

for our friend Dan, who sent us 
all these lovely pictures via email.
 There are more... so will probably 
share them in a few other Thankful
Thursday posts.  I thought they were
 all amazingly beautiful...............

Well, there you have it...............

Glad you could stop in, and hope
 you had a good visit.

Have a Lovely, Lovely Weekend,

sweet friends.
