Faithful Friday

God is faithful in much

He is faithful to forgive me.

He is faithful in the small and the big trials.

He is faithful in his provision .

Psalm 57:10
For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

I am so glad that my Lord and savior is here for me day in and day out. Life can become very overwhelming at times, however , he sends word of encouragement from friends, and in his word. I am so glad that I can call out His name and he is there.

Faithful Fridays is where you share an answered prayer, or something God did for you. Even the little stuff.
Take a look over here to see more faithful friday posts

I find that if I don't set goal for myself  I feel lost
not knowing what direction to go.

Yes , I know i am crazy.... Yes, i am over weight..... Yes my body is screaming at me.... But this is the goal I am working towards... August 1... there is a 5K in Albany NY... and I am going to do it.... YES.... so watch me limp and grown.... I will do this

Tablescape Thursday Bekah's Style

Bekah my 10 year old daughter saw some of the beautiful blogs over here, and she thought that she would put together  a place setting to share. These are some of her favorites that she likes that I have in my hutch.
She decided that a hydrangea flower would look lovely on the side of these Currier and Ives plates.
With a nice touch of stripping in the napkin which brings out the pink in the flowered tea cup.
This is one of our very fancy tea cup that  Bekah's Aunt gave to her... she thought it was very pleasant to the eye. Well thank you for looking at Bekah's creation... she is already planning another one. 

If you can take a look at some of the beautiful settings on Between Naps on the Porch 
they are very inspiring .
