Happy Friday Friends, It is hard to believe that our long and beautiful Autumn has come to an end and winter is here. Don't get me wrong I love the white stuff, especially when I can just stay in and enjoy it from the windows. I will admit though that yesterday's snow looked especially beautiful as I was driving to my study. Fresh snow on the trees is simply breath taking! By noon it had stopped snowing and being that it was such a wet snow the roads were clear. This photo isn't very good but it gives you the idea.
Today is relaxed but I did find out our oldest daughter and three of her kiddos have the stomach flu; hopefully the rest of the family won't catch it. I plan to make up a big pot of chicken & rice soup to take up later, for the weekend or when they are up to eating just a little. We also have a Scholastic Book Fair in town and I hope to go find some books for the grands Christmas stockings. This weekend I hope to begin making quilt-ornaments for our December tea party. I will leave some for the little girls to do, but I will tackle the cutting and most of the stitching; I would love to get those done.
I am thankful for this new season and the promises & hope that it will be a dryer winter than last year.
I am thankful for the many, many blessings the Lord has showered on us.
I am thankful that we didn't catch that flu bug and the ability to cook for our children and grandchildren.
I am thankful for my dear hubby and the man he is.
I am thankful for the friend who tutored me in quilting when I lived next door.
I am thankful for all that I have learned in the Beth Moore study on the Fruit of the Spirit.
I am thankful for the Lords redeeming love.
How about you? What are you thankful for this day?
Weekend blessings, Noreen
