Sing the praises of the LORD, you his faithful people;
praise his holy name.
Psalm 30:4 NIV
Welcome to August and
Welcome to Thankful Thursday,
I know I'm a lil bit late, but better late than never, as the old saying goes.....
Hope your week has been a good one, and thanks for coming by, always happy to have you visit! Our week has been mostly good....but we have grieving about our friend who fell and broke her knee cap, and had to have surgery and has just been in so much pain. She is the same one who had the episode at church a few weeks back. She is such a sweetheart and always taking care of others!
Pictures today are from a Beach themed table from the past. Thought since it was still Summer time it would be a great time to share it.
So on with my Thankfuls...........
Thankful for a nice quiet day with Brooklyn and
dinner out with her and our Son. Then hubby
and I did a lil shopping afterwards at our
fairly new Bealls store, and a new dollar tree
near us, that I have wanted to visit since it opened.
Thankful that I picked up a few small things
for Fall there. A small vignette actually for
just $5......like I really needed anything else
for Fall...........lol But they were cute lil
pumpkins, I have to say.....
Thankful for a fun day with lil darling on
Friday. We played "Monopoly" with her for
the first time and she really liked it way more
than I ever thought she would. She beat us
too. It is an old Monopoly game from when
our kids were young, so been a longggg time
since we have played it.
Thankful for her new lil friend in our neighborhood,
that she met through her other lil friend next door,
She is away a lot this summer and they and this
other lil girl have played together a number of
times. Both very sweet girls.....and so happy to
have them over, and they all play so well together,
and are all very well behaved.
Thankful that our guest room is all done.....
as we are expecting company on Wednesday.
Guess who?? Our Daughter DeeAnna.
We are very excited.....to say the least.
Thankful for the way the Lord directs our paths even when we don't realize it. I was reminded of it recently when I read something from a Dr. about taking Calcium, and the downsides, and realized how much the Lord had directed me away from taking it, at least, 3-4 times if not more.
Thankful to see on facebook today that a lil gal (we adore) that used to go to our church her whole growing up years, but who is now married and lives in Ga. was able to come to our churches Summer camp this year and bring her daughter so she could see and experience where and what her Mom experienced every Summer as a child, and meet a lot of folks her Mom knew back then, that are still friends. Such a blessing to them and to long time friends as well....and it was a blessing that I got to see lots of fun pictures of them and other I know too.
Thankful for all the loose ends we got tied
up the last few week. Love when anyone comes
cause it motivates me to take care of little things
that have needed doing anyway. So now, I can just
bask in the glory of that and enjoy life! lol
Thankful for take out from Longhorn steakhouse
on Monday as I wasn't feeling great Sunday or
Monday, but good eating and rest has made
me feel better today. PTL
Thankful our Daughter is on the way here.
Thankful that she made it safe and sound.
It will be a short visit..... but we will take
whatever we can get and be happy with it.
Well, that's it for this week......
Have a great weekend
Love, Hugs and
First of August Blessings,
