Thankful Friday

Morning Everyone....It's gonna be another fabulous day!

This morning I would like to share 5 more things that I am extremely grateful for....


1.  Good Christian Neighbors....Bill and Dorothy!  They lived across the street from us when our girls were little.  We sold our home and moved closer to town, then a few years later,  Bill and Dorothy sold their home and moved into the house that she grew up in.  About 7 years ago, Sam and I bought a house just across the street from them...(Just can't get away from each other)  so now, we are neighbors again!

I must tell you that they both are what I would call hoots!
He is the guy that is always trying to scare me by pretending he has a snake....she is the one that had him sneak up and unplug my Christmas lights one year...I thought the lights had blown a fuse, but oh no....Bill and Dorothy were sitting on their porch, just laughing their hearts out, while I was trying my best to replace about 10 fuses.....

He scared me early this morning...I was outside watering my plants and he quietly came up behind me and yelled....I nearly had to run catch my own heart!!

              They are truly great friends and neighbors...




2.  Our home.....We are so Blessed to have a nice place to call home....It's not what some might consider an extravagant home, but it is a home that is FILLED with LOVE!  What could be better than this?




3. My Morning Coffee in my favorite cup......

"Worrying does not empty tomorrow of it's troubles, it empties today of it's strength" 

Great words, and great coffee to start my day!



As for me and my house, We will serve the Lord!



God is the strength of our hearts and our portion forever.
Psalm 73:26

4.  I am thankful for scripture that is written on the wall in our family room and above the sink in our kitchen....

What a Blessing it is to my heart to be able to walk through these rooms and read these scriptures every single day....

5.  I am thankful for the many, many photos that I have sitting around everywhere in our home...These are memories of special times or events.  Being able to see all these photos each day allows me to reminisce and ponder upon all the happiness in our lives....

Hope you have enjoyed reading about all the things that I am thankful for.  


Sweet Blessings and Warm Hugs.....

We have so much to be thankful for, don't we? Not sure I'd want my neighbor scaring me half to death, tho! Ha! I'd turn the tables on him! Love the color of your brick house. Have a nice weekend.
