Friday five for May 31

Somehow Friday has rolled around again, so it's time to list five blessings from the past week.  Here goes:

1.  Being able to post in my Christmas blog.  That's something I've been neglecting, so it felt good to put up a short post and blog about these ornaments:

These are from Shutterfly, made of metal and really such a lovely gift to make and give.

2.  Seeing our dear friend Terry able to get out to church on Sunday after many weeks of having to miss it.  What a blessing!  The joy on her face and her delight in worshiping God alongside her church family blessed all of our hearts.
3.  A delightful time of food, fellowship and Bible study with our dear young friends Sam and Jenn on Sunday evening.  A blessing all the way around.

4.  A nice low-key time of celebrating Memorial Day with our daughter, son-in-law and family -- always a joy to spend time together.  We had a nice meal of burgers, pasta salad, oven fries and a peanut butter cookie dessert.

5.  Getting out to walk four or five times.  The fresh air is so good and the exercise even better.  It's wonderful to see all of the trees and flowers coming to life again after a long hard winter.

And a bonus!  I'll hopefully blog about this blessing later, but a surprise package came in yesterday's mail from my dear blog friend Vee (we've also had the pleasure of meeting in real life!).  She had snagged, titled, printed and framed this fun photo from my blog:

And there are some blessings from my week!  How has God blessed you this week?


  1. LOL! Thank you for outing me for the thief that I am! ☺️

    That ornament is sweet...perfect photo for a Christmas ornament.

    Your lilac is a beautiful pale lavender color...unique. So many varieties...I must get to the public garden to see them in bloom.

  2. Oh sweet Vee! I know that was a fun gift. Have a great weekend.

  3. I think it is so great that you and Mr T get to make an impact on this younger couple's life. Marvin and I still remember with great love and honor the older couple who took us under their wings many years ago.

  4. It was a joy to read of your Favorite Fives for this week, So many blessings that you were thankful for! I love the fact that you reach out to serve others,. Vee is such a thoughtful person and a great friend here in blogland, I am glad that you and she met, I hope one day to meet fellow bloggers. Have a blessed weekend.

  5. Oh, Mrs T...lovely to stop by for a visit with you today. Thank you for sharing these sweet blessings.
    I love your Christmas ornaments and oh! Getting out into nature is always a joy!
    Have a wonderful weekend...
