Thankful Thursday April 28, 2021, Spring/Easter Table 2021



Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation,

 by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,

 present your requests to God.

Philippians 4:6 NIV




Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you doing well today.

We are doing fairly well, but April has

been full of ups and downs that we are

navigating, but we will get through them,

because we know where our help comes from.

and the verse above is a constant reminder

 and help for us.





Pictures today are from our Easter Table,
but it could be a lovely Spring table as well.
Found these gorgeous paper goods at Walmart
 They are from the Pioneer Woman collection.
I thought they were so pretty and also easy!
But I do like to dress them up by using
normal flatware and pretty glassware, which
makes for a pretty table too,



So on with my Thankfuls......



#1
Thankful for an opportunity to share our 
marriage story, which is quite rare these days.
  We had an interview with one of our former
 Sunday School Students from some years
 back when we used to teach marriage classes.
  She is taking counseling classes and was 
asked to interview a couple who she knew 
that had a solid marriage.
So since we have been around awhile
and she figured we must be getting close
to 50 yrs. we would be a good choice.
And we just passed our 50th Anniversary
last November, so what an honor.


#2
Thankful for what a wonderful stroll down 
memory lane it was for us, and it was quite
 enlightninto see some of her responses to
 how things were 5 decades ago. Also
made us realize some interesting things
about it that we had never really thought
about before too.  So it was a great
experience, and hope we gave her all
the info she needed to write her paper.









#3

Thankful to for her thoughtfulness in bringing

us a gift of 2 new marriage books we have

never read.  Which of course, she certainly

did not have to do.  So that was sweet and

she is a very sweet lady too. 



#4

Thankful that we were able to get our roofer

out here as we got a leak in our roof from

all that rain we had earlier this week.  It's the

same fellow that did our shed a few years

ago. He surveyed the situation today and

thinks it is coming from our chimney as the

boards have warped up there,  so he has to

get materials,  so hopefully he will be back

tomorrow or Monday.  So happy he

is still available or we wouldn't know

who to call......






#5
Thankful for how diligently my husband
is working on a new feature for our customers
of our card shop. It's gonna be great,
and hopefully we can implement it soon.



#6
Thankful for a good time with our Son and 
lil Darling on Sunday.  We got take out
 from Tijuana flats and played games. 
 Fun time as always!








#7
Thankful to know God is in control of our lives
and the ones we love.  As we are praying and are
 heartbreakingly watching someone we love dearly
 go through a very rough time, and soon it will
be another person too, 




#8
Thankful for a delicious and easy new recipe
I happened to see on yummly.  It is garlic shrimp
pasta. Made it tonight for din din and we loved it.
Thinking the leftovers will be even better. 
Absolutely love making one dish and being
able to have it for 2 dinners.

Oh yea, here is the recipe in case you are
interested.











#9
Thankful for some yard work we got done in
the back yard the last 2 evenings.  Amazing how
just a lil trimming up makes such a difference.




#10
Thankful for the way we can go to bed discouraged
and asking the Lord to help us,  and get up the next
morning after a good nights sleep and it's like the Lord
has made everything looks so much better.
  He never ceases to amaze me.








#11

Thankful for God's beautiful Seasons and nature;

 like blooming Ginger and Jasmine and Wild flowers

 in my backyard, a pretty red cardinal hopping around in the

trees, and the pretty Spring green of the trees and all the 

pretty new growth everywhere, and a flock of Sandhill

cranes flying in formation.

 So Beautiful is Spring.....in all her Glory.



#12

Thankful that my Daughter and her hubby are able 

to do a lil get-a-way weekend to a Lakeside cabin

 near Asheville, NC this weekend. 










Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.


Thanks for dropping by.....


Have a lovely rest of the week,



Love Hugs and
 Last Day of April
Blessings,
Nellie

Hi Susan,
How cool you have 6 baby birds in your unused mailbox. Do you know what type they are??
Wonder if it is the same bird as last year.....so funny they find that mailbox every year.
Take care, and have a good week.
Blessings,
