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

Friday Foto Friends

It's Friday! Time to join the others as we share pics with Deb at Breathing in Grace for Friday Foto Friends.

My pictures for this week are sky pics ... again. It sometimes seems so redundant and yet no two are ever alike. The sky is ever changing, I can't help myself, I'm drawn outside to behold the beauty of the heavens that declare the glory of God.

What to say on this beautiful Friday? I am going to be a busy bee today getting ready for Sara and her family to be in town for a soccer tournament. Hopefully there will be some down time in-between sitting out in the hot sun watching them play. Not complaining, but it can be tough here in Texas.

It's been a good week and included our seeing two movies which is not the norm for us. We saw Churchill, which was about D-Day and the allied forces landing on Normandy. In watching movies recently about Churchill, I'm impressed for the man that he was and how he cared for his country and the Britons. The other movie we saw was Wonder Woman! I surprised myself by wanting to see this one and surprise, surprise! We both loved it. If the boys haven't seen this one, I am going to offer to take them and watch it again! From the little I have read about the actress who played Wonder Woman, I think she is a pretty amazing woman herself. She is a former Miss Israel and served in the Israeli army. She is gorgeous and on top of all of that, she was pregnant during the filming of the movie!

It was also a productive week in that I finally:
  • got all the plants I wanted for pots and planted them,
  • bought a new outdoor rug for the patio which amazingly enough goes with the new pads for the patio chairs,
  • made a plan and met with the lawn guy to discuss what we can do with the back yard to fill up the vacancy left from the diseased roses,
  • baked cookies,
  • shopped for new jeans for DH,
  • FINISHED a book,
  • stayed on track with two new Bible studies,
  • made special "Good Job" cards for the kids,
  • made my grocery list for the weekend,
  • maybe came up with a vacation plan,
  • and finally got the critter control people out to finish the job they started months ago.

Beautiful sky photos! I also watch a movie about Churchill, and was impressed with his courage to stand up for what he knew was best for his country and the allies.
