FFF ~ blessings

Hello there and welcome to the Nov.19th edition of

So many lovely blessings this week ~ I’ll try to keep it to my favourite five!

1. It’s that time of year again . . .

baking Christmas cookies that travel,

a little Christmas love

for a dear boy and girl far away.

(No, that’s not a snowy London – just a little weekend jaunt to Germany – wouldn’t that be an adventure! 🙂

Love you Andrew and Hyekoo!

2. Morning light . . .

A Island November with its steel grey skies, raw wind and constant rain can be a bit trying to a sunshine loving girl . . .

But on those rare mornings, when you wake to streams of sunlight  through kitchen windows,

 the whole day is brightened! And of course, lovely December snow is on the way. Believe me, there is no comparison between pure white snowflakes drifting down and cold winter rain. Give me snow anytime! (I’m sure I have those who will boo – we can debate it in the comments! 🙂

3. A November sunset over the water . . .

(click to enlarge)The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
 where morning dawns, where evening fades,
 you call forth songs of joy. Ps 65:8


No photo or canvas could capture its shimmering beauty. But I keep trying anyway! 🙂

4. A perfect November evening . . . flickering firelight, a good book, and my girl on the piano.

5.  Prayer . . . it was a precious gift this week to attend a young adult initiated, and directed, prayer time for our capitol city, Charlottetown and the whole Island.

And especially sweet to see our son John, and daughter Sarah, lead in worship and hear our daughter in law Kathleen, lead in prayer. It does my heart such good to see so many young adults and teens hungry for more of the Lord.

On the same topic, my dear friend Tonia is beginning a study on prayer. Every Wednesday we’ll get together to learn from one of my favourite writers ~ Andrew Murray. We’ll progress chapter by chapter through his book With Christ in the School of Prayer -an online version can be found here. This is a classic book on prayer that I’ve read and re-read, underlined and quoted.  Each time I open its pages, I’m inspired and encouraged all over again.

Why don’t you come and join us? I know it’s going to be a wonderful study and we’ll all grow deeper in our life of prayer. You’ll find all the details here.

Well . . . I hope you enjoyed your visit with me this week. Thanks so much for coming by!

For more Friday favourites, drop over to Susanne’s at Living To tell The Story.

Hope your week brims over with blessings!

with love,

    I smiled to see your cookie cutter with the red wooden handle. I have one just like it, it was my mom's and I've made cookies with wooden handled cutters my whole life. I wonder if the same story is behind yours is like mine. Thank you for sharing your weekly treasures review. I enjoy seeing it so much.

  3. The morning light photos are just wonderful! So cozy and peaceful. Exciting to hear about the young people led prayers for the capital. I know your cookies will be very much enjoyed "across the pond". They look delicious.

  7. I love home-baked cookies! And I just love all the photos of streaming light. I love sunshine, too, and would be so grateful for sunshine after rain. Your perfect November evening does indeed sound perfect! And what a wonderful prayer time. I read that Murray book way back in college.
