It’s been a while since I joined Susanne and friends for Friday’s Fave Five and I’m glad to be back. Some very special events have happened over the last while and I couldn’t miss documenting them. Plus, I miss you!
I captured the beautiful dayspring on Easter morning – perfect timing as I headed over to our sunrise service.
“Through the tender mercy of our God, with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death” (Luke 1:78, 79, NKJV)
2. Easter was a double blessing this year because it fell on my birthday. I don’t ever remember Easter as early as March 31st. We had a wonderful celebration and the kids cooked a delicious Easter/birthday feast for me. My sister Deb sent a lovely bouquet of tulips. I received birthday roses and a gorgeous orchid plant (my first!) so the house is filled with spring-time blooms. I love the bright colours and freshness flowers bring into the home.
When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.
3. I was so happy to find these wavy glass flower vases on sale for 94 cents each – what a buy! And exactly what I had been searching for. They’re tall and narrow and prevent the dreaded tulip droop 🙂
4. Speaking of great buys, I stumbled into the library book sale last week – a dangerous place for a bibliophile 🙂 Thankfully, the prices were terrific – a dollar for hardcovers and 50 cents for paperbacks. Such fun browsing over the tables piled high with books. I was thrilled to discover these titles!
5. and now for my final favourite – which includes two special birthdays celebrated over the last two weeks. Our youngest son, James, celebrated his 25th birthday and our granddaughter, Josie, had her very first birthday!
Here they are on James’ birthday – Josie is looking at herself on James’ phone – a favourite past-time. 🙂 A week later the whole clan from both sides gathered to celebrate Josie’s special day.
Well . . . I’m so glad to be back the FFF swing of things. I plan to make the FFF rounds over the weekend. Our weather sounds like I may have lots of time to spend online . . .
My poor little crocus . . .
Thanks so much for coming by!
