Thankful Thursday - Spring Things

 
Thankful Thursday is my day to focus on and be thankful for the good things in my life. 

I'm thankful for this pretty wall decoration my daughter made for me.  It's one of my favorite verses and a good reminder.  He is faithful to give us His strength when our strength is gone.  I've experienced this many, many times.  Such a wonderful promise.



This week, I'm grateful for free-range eggs.  These are so much better than the store-bought ones.  Big, rich yellow-orange yolks give them a yummy taste.  Aren't they pretty?  Different colors come from the different varieties of chickens.  I'm grateful, too, for the man in our synagogue who supplies them to us.  Farming is not easy, especially in this Florida heat..  

If you look closely at the lid of the egg carton, you can see a Bible verse:  "This is the day that the L-rd has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it."  That's a great way to start the day, don't you think?



The azaleas are in bloom.  This shot brings back memories of my childhood home, which was surrounded by azaleas and with a huge oak tree in the front yard. 

 
The pink trees are blooming, too!  We always know winter is over when they appear.  Actually, they started blooming mid February. That's when our cold weather ended.  (I love Florida) 


Aren't these begonias lovely?  You can see the pink tree in the background.  Hubby and I were on the deck of a restaurant, enjoying the warm breeze.



I bought these stems from the Dollar Tree (another thing I'm thankful for) and they have brought me so much joy!  I love to keep fresh flowers on my table, but when I saw these I had to buy them. I'll use them as a standby for when one of my fresh bouquets has expired.  They make me happy, happy, happy!

 What are you thankful for this week?

  1. We are seeing signs of spring's return in Knoxville, TN. I'm giddy inside, too! That's neat the beautifully colored eggs' carton contains a scripture from God's word. I love seeing businesses that are not ashamed to share their faith. It's nice meeting you on Friendship Friday!

  5. Gorgeous photos. Spring is not quite here yet in Ohio. It is trying to blossom forth but cold days still prevail for the most part. Thank you for sharing at The Weekend Brew.
