On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Four Good F Words

Food, Fun, Friends and Family

Another full week winding down as we get ready for Thanksgiving and then ... YIKES! Christmas already???!!!! I need time. More time.

Monday was a good day for meeting up with my dear friend, Connie, at the Cracker Barrel which is very conveniently situated halfway between us! Since she moved soooooo far away, we don't get to see each other as often, but we stay in touch. It was a rainy and cool day - nice to cozy up to a table in front of the fireplace, eat a little comfort food and chat for a spell!

 You can tell she didn't really want her picture taken,
so I promised not to put it on Facebook!

Pinto beans and cornbread! Yummy!

Tuesday's Ladies of Grace was another good day with one of our ladies speaking about healthy foods! Now, not only does she talk about those good foods, she brings along with her the actual product! Tuesday's offering was butternut squash soup, pumpkin bars (gluten free) and fake bacon! Who ever would have thought to take slivered coconut, seasoned well, and toasted for sprinkling on soups and salads, or just to snack on! Very good!

Wednesdays are BSF day and afterwards, I went to the hospital to sit with another dear friend whose daughter was having a procedure that was fairly simple, but, as you know, any surgery always comes with risk. Victoria and I had a nice, long visit which is a fairly rare thing, so it was an afternoon well spent. And her daughter, Liz, came through like the champ she is. Thanking the Lord for His goodness to her.

This Mom and her daughter inspire me as they have come through the fire together.
And both of them still have the twinkle in their eyes and a smile on their face.
What a testimony they are to me.

Thursday was productive getting things done around here and then, Thursday night was fun, fun, fun! Amy and I FINALLY got to get together for dinner and afterwards, an Anita Renfroe show. Really and truly, laughing out loud funny for almost two hours. If you know who she is, you know it was funny!  And, if you don't, hopefully this link will work and, if not, you can find her on Godtube.com!

And today? The printer!!! Woo-hoo! We have a printer again! That is an exciting thing if you know how difficult this week has been for us in dealing with printers! 

This afternoon, the postman delivered this. My niece made it for us. Sweet! I love it because it's pretty, but more because of her thoughtfulness!

One of my favorite pics of Robyn and me.
Isn't she pretty?

Two of the most valuable things in this life that I treasure and don't take for granted is the love of my family and friends. God has blessed me richly and for that, I am truly thankful.


  1. The wreath is beautiful and so is your niece. You had a busy, busy week! I hope you can relax a bit this weekend before we all have another very busy week ahead!

  2. You sure had a busy week lined up there! Your niece is a lovely girl-that is a great picture at the end! They are all great--well, except for the one of your speaker. lol...that one is not so hot. lol Hey- I just calls em as I sees em. lol
    I am glad that you were able to meet your friend at Cracker Barrel. It is hard to keep in touch when someone moves a ways away---and takes extra effort to do so.

    Hope you have a great weekend. xo Diana

  3. Wonderful F words. I love Anita Renfroe and I'm so jealous you got to see her in person!! Wonderful all the time spent with good friends. Busy, good times!!

  4. Robyn and you are both beautiful. How special to spend time with friends. I wish we had a cracker barrel near us. I love pinto beans and cornbread. Make it quite often. Hubby loves a slice of red onion with his.

  5. I'm glad you had a fun time with friends! How nice of you to spend time in the hospital for support for a friend. As a surgical tech I know there is no such thing as minor surgery. My hubby always says that the only minor surgery is someone elses surgery! Love the wreath and your niece is as lovely as her Aunt!

  6. Nonnie, Love your "F" words. The love of family is so good to be thankful for. Friends are another wonderful blessing. I was just think Tuesday..would have been my best school chum birthday...she's been gone 3 years now and I miss her so much. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo,Susie

  7. Wonderful to be able to visit with old friends. I recently had a crash of my computer and I still haven't hooked up the printer. Need to get after that!

  8. I need more time too! What a busy week you had. Glad the printer is working and I love the wreath your niece made.
