Really tired this week and very late to post with fff


I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to say thanks for the blessings ~ and say hi to all my fff friends. They’re all over at Living to Tell The Story with Susanne.

1. Love this tweet from Nicky Gumbel

Waiting and trusting
go together. If you don’t trust God, it’s hard to wait on Him. But if
you trust God…you’ll wait. 

Quiet confidence –  like the difference between what I call “fussing prayer” and “trusting prayer”.  A good word!

(No, the flowers aren’t blooming here on PEI but I need some summertime pictures up – I’m slightly snow-weary.)

2.  This memory is making me smile today:

because it means these are not that far away.

3. Another smile this week – a new waiter for the birds.

The birds loved it but I didn’t get a picture before the last storm – which was snow, freezing rain, rain and back to snow.  My poor snow-waiter is in desperate need of repair!

(notice the height of the snow in the background?? Roger shovelled that walk out twice in one day during that storm)

4. Warm sun on my face even thought it’s February. It’s true – the sun is warming up and if we get a clear day, I lift my face to its warmth, close my eyes and pretend I can hear the waves against the sand.

In my mind’s eye it looks like this . . .

but when I open my eyes, this is the scene before me. A winter beach has a certain wild beauty about it but I love the summer beach best.

5. A little winter beauty ~ just a reminder to enjoy it while it lasts 🙂

Whatever season you may be in, I hope you discover beauty all around this weekend!

with love and thanks for you,

    Yes, the winter photos all have a beauty of their own. But I’m partial to spring….and we’ve not even had a bad winter here! I can bet that you all are ready for the warmer breezes! Love your snowman for the birdies. Deb

    Beautiful pictures Kathie! Winter is so beautiful but I too long for those lovely Spring flowers and for Spring itself! We are still in the throws of a very wintery February and another storm approaching tonight – sigh. I’m trusting and waiting…. Stay warm and cozy and have a wonderful week.


  4. Arlene says:

    Kathie that was exceptional. You need to create some books like this. We are having a good time. Parts of our visit have been unbearably difficult. But God’s hand is with us and is holding us and is sheltering us and is squeezing us. I thank for it all.
    Love you’ Arlene

    Your eye for photography is absolutely stunning. Your FAVE Five are worthy of bringing warmth to the heart as you anticipate a new season bursting forth of vim and color. I have missed our winter cold snap…it’s only raining here…wet and cold. Soon and very soon…I’m hoping.


  6. Willow says:

    I love your photos of spring–they are our hope for warmth and sunshine (I should talk, huh, since I already have flowers blooming). Now I really really really need to drive to the beach and get a beach, sand and surf fix!Love your little snow waiter, and I want to knit that hat!


  7. Susanne says:

    It may be cold and wintery, but your pictures make it look so beautiful! I loooove your snowman waiter! You are a very creative gal with the snow! Love that quote by Nicky Gumbel and for your perspective on fussing prayer and trusting prayer!


  8. I love all your photos! Your snow-waiter is adorable. I just reviewed a book written by Nicky Gumbel not long ago :).Thanks for visiting my blog and praying for my friend!


  9. Heather says:

    Just beautiful flowers you have posted! We have been warmer than usual here. I would love some gorgeous snow though. Your pictures of it are beautiful too!! Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m adding you to my list. 🙂


  10. nikkipolani says:

    Yes, yes, spring will come! Please feel free to post pictures of last spring until your spring arrives — I never tire of the beauty. But thank you for sharing your snowy beauty, too.


  11. Melissa Reynolds says:

    Thanks for sharing such lovely photos–both winter and spring! I think bulbs are a really neat part of God’s creation. Your snowman is very cute, and what a neat idea to make him a waiter for the birds!


  12. Brenda says:

    Your picture are beautiful! I love your snowman waiter. Have you thought of posting that on Pinterest?Though winter is not my favorite season, I do love that we live in a four-season state…beautiful Colorado!


  13. Gattina says:

    Your flower pictures are a real treat in this dull and cold weather here ! You had a lot of snow ! I am so longing for spring now !


  14. Lovella says:

    Kathie, I often think you live in the most beautiful place in the world, but maybe you see things that the rest of us miss. I love your cheery. I’m sorry you are so tired. I feel a bit sleepy myself.


  15. Laura says:

    Lovely, lovely post! Beautiful.Love that quote, too. And the waiter is SO cute.Hope you have a warmer and sunnier week ahead!


  16. Judy says:

    Beautiful pictures, as always! Though I am sure you are weary of snow…it makes for beautiful photography. Have a great weekend.


  17. Jill says:

    Your snow waiter has inspired me!! Mila looks a lovely as ever. Our drive way is banked five feet with snow on each side. The temps keep climbing and Q barely brushed us. I love all the snow we have gotten!


  18. Hi Kathie, Thanks for posting this on FB so I could see it! I appreciate it. Your photos are really beautiful and I too am longing for the snow to be gone. I laughed at your new bird waiter and the cat checking it out. Really cute! Have a good weekend. Blessings, Pamela


  19. Stacey R says:
