Thankful Thursday October 19, 2017, scesnes from Fall's Past #4

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
 and his courts with praise; 
give thanks to him and
 praise his name.
Psalm 100:4  NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you had a good day today!

Been a beautiful day here, very
 sunny so got outside for a few 
minutes to get some Vit D... but
 did get some rain later.  Also 
Worked in the yard some this
 morning, pulling weeds and 
trimming my rose bush back,
thought it had died, but after
trimming it back think it may
just survive after all.  Have no
 idea what happened to it, so
fertilized it good and hoping for
the best. Spent most of the rest
of the day talking with my sweet 
daughter on the phone. Been awhile 
since we had a marathon phone call, 
 so it was a nice way to spend the
day, as I can use my head set and
do some work at the same time.

Pictures today are again scenes 
from Fall's past.  Now I will
get on with my Thankfuls....

for some fun games of Catch
Phrase with hubby. At our age
sometimes we have to describe
a word in order to get the word,
we want to describe the word
that is one the card, so it can
get pretty funny!  lol

that we finally took a big limb
off one of our trees that was full
of grapevine, and I was concerned
it was gonna kill our tree if we
didn't get that limb it
is gone and so is the grapevine.

for a fun lunch out with some
church friends.  The food was
pretty good, the service was
great and the company
was delightful.


for servers in restaurants that
do such a great job, when they
wait on us. Cause when you get
some that aren't so good or that
have an attitude it can definitely
impact your time out in a not
so good way and the reverse
is also true....when you get a
warm and friendly server it
makes your time there very

that it looks like my daughter
and hubby will be here for
Christmas this year. 
 Makes this Mom a hap hap
happy Girl..........


for the delight in seeing a
long time friend and her son
on Sunday.  I see her fairly
often, but have not seen her
son in years, and I have known
him since he was about 8 yrs.
old.  He was a great kid and
now he is a great adult, he is
now married with 2 children
and has his own business, that
he started back when he was
a teenager, never seen a more
hardworking kid with such an
entreprenurial spirit.

for a precious story from light-
workers about a young boy who 
has a disability and his new best
 friend......very sweet!  
and worth the watch..............

in for yourself


for seeing some other longtime
friends that used to go to our 
church years ago, while we were
 out having dinner on Wed. It has
 been years since we have seen 
them and their son too, and his
girlfriend, she used to go to our
church as well, she was a child
the last time we saw her. We all
 said lets get together soon, and 
we would really love that. Our
daughter is best friends with their
 daughter so we hear about each
 other all the time as our girls talk
 on the phone quite frequently.

that our Discover card fraud
prevention group discovered
what they thought might have
been fraudulent activity on our
 card and cancelled our card and
 is sending us new ones.........
Thank the Lord for his watch-
care over us.


for 2 really good movies we
saw this week.  They are Hall-
mark hall of fame movies.
One was called "Dear Viola"
and the other one "At Home
in Mitford".  They were both
really lovely movies and we
got them from the Feeln
chanel, which is now the
Hallmark chanel.

for all of you, Sweet Friends,
that come by;  some on a daily
basis, some weekly, some every
once in awhile, those who leave 
comments and those who don't.
It is always humbling to know 
that someone is interested in
 what you have to say!!

for God's word that keeps us
on track even when things
don't seem to make sense.

and that's all folks................

Glad you could stop by today.....
Always happy to know you 
came by.............

Have a Great Weekend,
and Keep your light
shining brightly!

Hugs and Blessings,

P.S. Sorry for the wonky 
print,  tried to fix it but
it just wouldn't fix!!  lol

Broccoli Tots Recipe

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you well and happy!

Remember last week I told you I found
a new recipe and it was called Broccoli
Tots, and if it was good I would share
it with you.  Well, I was quite happy
with it, as they are a good snack or
a good side for din din as well.

I have been using ours as a snack.
I put them in a container and put
them in the fridge, so I can just grab 
one easily when the Hangries get 
the better of me. lol

I like them room temp. best and
hubby likes them warm, so if that
is your story you can just pop
them in the microwave for a
few seconds.

I found the recipe at "the two
bites club blog, and she has some
other pretty good looking recipes
as was my first time
to visit there..........

Click here to see recipe 

or type it in or copy and paste it for yourself.

Just for your Information:

 I used frozen chopped broccoli and did
 not cook it first, I just put it in a colander
and rinsed it with hot water, and let it 
drain, and made sure it was as dry as
possible, then just mixed it with the 
other ingredients, and I also used panko
bread crumbs eggbeaters and colby
 and monterey jack cheese, as I just
 used what I had on hand.

I also used this:

After it was all mixed up this cookie
scoop was perfect for putting it on a
 cookie sheet.  Once I scooped it up,
 I did sort of smash the mix down into
 the round scoop, and that helped
 them to stay together better!

Anyway, hope you try them out,
don't think you will be disappointed
and they are pretty quick to make.

Have a Blessed Day!!

Scripture Sunday - Seeking

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, 
and he will give you everything you need.
Luke 12:31
New Living translation

There are a number of ways this is written in 
different versions of the bible, but I thought
 this was the clearest as to the truth of what
 it really means.  Notice it doesn't say every-
thing you want, it says everything you need,
and the Lord knows our every need....
and many times he gives us our wants
 as well...........

Have a Blessed Sunday,
