Meanwhile this week I got inspired by a photo on Facebook that was on the "Tea for Thought" page:

"Share it with someone you love"
Anyway, that inspired me to dress up one of my teddybears:
These cute little teddies are always ready for a tea party:
Speaking of interesting and pretty, this beautiful red amaryllis flower just opened right up, without even sending up a tall stem like it normally does. I received this plant/bulb for Christmas from my son and his wife, and planted it right away. I was surprised to see it blooming before it really got very tall. But I love it!
It looks right at home among my African Violet plants on the window sill in the sun porch. So wonderful to see such lovely color in the drabness of winter.
Well, friends, I hope you have enjoyed this little picnic/tea party/ride through the woods and back home again. As many of you are aware, we are trying to sell our home and move to a community about 30 miles away, near our son and daughter in law and the church that we attend. We've had some disappointing prospective buyers who didn't show up or others that came and went and never came back. We've seen a few houses we'd like to buy, but can't do anything without selling our house first. And so we wait, and we pray, and we take rides and dream and sing little songs and visit with friends and stay busy while we wait. We know that when God is ready to move us, it will all fall into place. We are trying to be patient...
Reading in the book "The Way of Abundance" by Ann Voskamp, here's a few thoughts about "Abundance", (my One Word for 2019)
- "Where might God be working to soften your heart today in the midst of your work?
- Where might there be hardness in your heart that is hindering your growth into the abundant life?"
Hold the presses! Just as I was about to hit "publish" for this post, I looked outside and saw this beautiful sunrise, so I grabbed my camera and ran down the road to the neighborhood pond to capture some pictures before it became covered with the clouds:
I knew you wouldn't want to miss it! Praise God in the mornings...Praise Him in the evenings! Praise Him ALL day long!!! Okay...go have a marvelous day my friends! Yes, Fridays are better with friends!
