Friday Fave ~ bright and beautiful


It’s Friday again – welcome to  Susanne‘s Favourite Fives! We’re counting our blessings. You’re welcome to join the celebration!

We’re fast approaching the shortest day of the year. Here on the Island it begins to get dark around 4:30 pm. I’m thankful for every moment of light ~ sunlight, candlelight, firelight, lamplight, and yes, electric! I’m especially appreciative since we lost power earlier this week during a very blustery day!

I thought I would share a few pictures of light this week – the shining moments.

Hope you enjoy!

1. sunrise glow

2. shaft of sunlight on the bookcase

3. Sunlight dancing on water droplets

4. Path of light over the strait

5. Glow of Advent candlelight

6. And a glimpse into the past – two little birthday candles shining on another December 10th, 26 years ago.

Two happy little boys with shining eyes. How you loved your Carebears!

This sweet face still lights up a room!

Happy Birthday Robbie – 28 years old today. Love you sweets! We’ll celebrate when you get home from the North Pole 🙂

 Thanks so much to you for coming by this Friday ~ I hope you enjoyed your visit.

And a special thanks for all your sweet comments and cheery hellos  ~  they always brighten my day!

I’ll say goodbye with one more picture and a prayer;

Advent candles – Hope & Peace

May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him ~ today, and always.

with love

  6. This is a delightful post, reminding us to be thankful for "light" in it's many forms and most importantly, "the light of the world", Jesus. The birthday photos of your 'little' boys are sweet. They grow up so fast! We certainly have had some beautiful sunrises and sunets lately over our Maritime skies haven't we? Have a blessed weekend.Pamela
