a peek at my week...

and white wednesday #101




and a little pink, too.




It has been  a good week...
How about you?


I have seen my family (grandkids) lots


I've worked in my flowers


 Painting season has officially begun.
Yeah!


Healing is taking place in my heart.
These words were especially sweet.

  For we are God's workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepares in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10


 I  am working on projects 
that I have been putting off.
 For years.
I am such a chicken.




This  sweet read  touched my heart this morning.


...the kind that goes deep
makes you cry,
 makes you think, 
makes  you take just a minute longer...

...go here...to see for yourself



My heart is  saddened for all of the loss
the loss in our country
and the loss here at home.
My prayers are with all that are suffering loss.

Jeremiah 29:11 

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.



~these sweet rosebud-like  blossoms are from my hawthorne tree~
I love it.

Hi..those pink flowers are just beautiful. I don't think I've seen them before.
I have had a good week, thank you for asking. My son moved back from Arkansas. We've had a lot of family visiting and catching up. It has been wonderful. Oft times I didn't know if my son would ever move back home, but prayers are answered and now he's here.
Have a fabulous week this week too.
I love your posts.

Hi Rene'
Your house is so beautiful and you have such an eye for display, you are coming along Girl! Such a process you are going through... just like all of us, the Lord is good. I redid the kitchen and really enjoyed the outcome, it was good to get it clean and refreshed. I am now in WA and my trip here was so beautiful. I enjoyed the drive, Now I am trying to get my head together for Farm Chicks. Then I can rest a bit.
I am sending love and blessings your way

Your photos always include just the right amount of vintage to make my heart swoon. I wonder if a Hawthorne tree would grow up north?

Love this post. As I read the verses you shared I was reminded of Philippians 1:6. So glad your week was a joyous one!

FredaB said...

I too was wondering what kind of flowers they were but found out when I got to the end of your post. I kept thinking a small rosebud type but not quite.

I must look up this tree and see the info on it. Beautiful flowers.
