Favorites from Spring

Way back when...in the beginning of this blog, I shared this post about my favorite things from fall. Certainly, spring has been in the air around here - once the rain moved out, the weather has been gorgeous! For Thankful Thursday today, I'd thought I'd share a few of my favorite spring things! I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful time of year!! I love:

Blooming trees and flowers - the azaleas are beautiful this week
Flowers in pots...especially geraniums and impatiens
Longer hours of daylight..especially morning
Enjoying mornings on my deck
Taking Rascal for leisurely walks around the lake
Sleeping with the windows open
Finding a new bird's nest in our birdhouse
Discovering baby bunnies in the neighbor's yard
Sidewalk chalk art
Deep green grass and
The smell of freshly mowed grass
Picking strawberries...especially with David and Rachael
Farmer's markets and fresh produce
and Weddings on the Horizon!!

  4. I am with ya...the longer days and mornings are doing my soul all the good!!! =)Just checkin' in...we have 12 girls signed-up so far!!! I just wanted to encourage you and let you know I am prayin' the following for you, "Father, we are your children. Jesus is Lord over our spirit, soul, and BODY. I praise you because we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful; we know that full well. Lord, I thank YOU for declaring your plans for us - plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. WE CHOOSE to renew our minds to YOUR PLANS for a healthy lifestyle. You have abounded towards us with all prudence and wisdome. Therefore, we give thought to our steps. Teach us knowledge and good judgement with concerns to our bodies. Our bodies are for you Lord. So here is what we want to do with YOUR help, Father God. We choose to take our everyday, ordinary lives - our sleeping, our eating, our excercising, our going to work, our walking-around lives, and PLACE THEM BEFORE YOU AS LIVING SACRIFICES. Christ, the Messiah, will be magnified and receive the glory and praise in each of our bodies and minds. Thank you Lord for the help you are giving us! In Jesus Name! Amen!!! (out of the Prayers That Avail Much) Have a great day! Your Biggest Loser Bloggin' Style Friend - Dawn
