Feeling Mighty Fine

Let me just say that the pictures today,have little or nothing to do with the words.The pictures are there for you to enjoy,even if you choose not to read my ramblings.


This has been a busy,but good week. I have felt the blessings of God in very real ways.
It all started on Sunday,when my only sibling,my sister took me out for an ice-cream treat at the local DQ,in honor of my upcoming birthday.


On Tuesday it was the fifth year of remembering our wedding anniversary,without my dear Jake at my side.God answered the prayers of so many friends and I had a fantastic day.

Yesterday,June 11,was my birthday,and again,so many friends stopped by my Facebook page to wish me a Happy Birthday that it had to be a good day.
I spent part of my day doing what I love to do,being out in nature with my camera.
No,none of these pictures are from that outing,but were taken a few weeks back.


I had lunch with my son,something I always enjoy and a time I treasure.


I ended my day by having two friends over for pizza and a couple of hours of my favourite music.
Legacy Five sang to us via YouTube and I thoroughly enjoyed that.Only thing better would have been to be at a concert with them.
Here is a link to one of my many favourites by them,and I truly woke up this morning Feeling Mighty Fine.

  3. Belated Happy Birthday dear Ruth. Also Happy Anniversary too. Our husbands may be gone from this life, but celebrations from our times together are still important, especially the wedding anniversary.

    Wonderful photos! I love that cute litte bird with its red breast.

    Thank you for sharing the beauty in your life ~ FlowerLady
