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

Driving over to our son's home, we pass so many beautiful corn fields. Unfortunately, we are driving at high speed, and since I am the chauffeur these days, and DH isn't into taking pics, I do the best I can. I did stop on a little country road to snap a couple of photos of cornfields which I thought were pretty nice. 

A friend of mine who lives in that area took a pic of her husband in the cornfield to show you how tall they are. He is not a midget! I think some of the Midwestern natives have a saying of "knee high by July." 
But, this is TEXAS!!!

Summer Days and Summer Nights

Our neighborhood has flags flying on each block. I enjoy
seeing the flags on my walks and thankful our town is proud to fly them.

Now for Friday Fotos, I am posting some very silly ones. The ministry I retired from eight years ago will be honoring one of my former co-workers who worked/served at the ministry for 32 years and is a most amazing lady. There were four of us who assisted her and the founder and president of the ministry in her home. We worked outside the corporate offices of the ministry and were known as the Edelweiss Team. At the annual Christmas party, we were the Edelweiss Elves who cooked up a program to entertain our boss! We had such fun and we even stooped one year to wearing those crazy Billy Bob teeth.

Judy with the washboard.
Me with the tambourine.
Eric holding the signs I made.
and Kay just joined in the song.
My DH joined us in our rendition of Keep On the Sunny Side
playing an improvised bass with a bucket and mop.

I refuse to show a close up of me with those horrid teeth! 
I made good use of that old green plaid shirt and DH's baggy jeans and big boots!
Oh boy,  did we have fun. We even wrote lyrics for a song to the tune of Hee Haw's 
Where Are You Tonight?
Our fearless leader June absolutely loved it.

The lady with the sling is the one retiring. 
The lower pic is our Jeanne holding the coveted "Dorie" award 
she won for being most like Dorie in Finding Nemo. 
Lol! Do you remember?
Dorie Award? Huh? Refresh my memory!

Sweet memories of days gone by. Was it always fun? No. 
But I could never express how much I learned from these precious ladies. 
So much unconditional love, forgiveness, grace, patience … really all the fruit of the Spirit!

One of my very dear friends is making memories in Israel these days! Love this pic of her and her traveling buddy.

Have a blessed weekend!

Hi Nonnie, I loved your country photos. That's some tall corn. That saying "knee high by the 4th of July" means the corn will be a success. I bet your stage show was a god time. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Susie said...

Nonnie, I meant good time...husband interruptions! xo, Susie

looks like the stage show was a blast! I've never heard of The Dorie Award but it sure sounds a fun award to give someone. Have a great weekend.

You fotos brought a smile to my face this morning. You captured the skies and clouds beautifully. We travel in the Midwest usually in late spring and early fall where there are miles and miles of corn fields. Although pretty and usually very healthy, they don't compare in size to ours down here. Isn't it fun to go back and remember those days gone by when life was less worry and more carefree, not knowing what was ahead. Your DH is still a very handsome man, by the way. Hope you have a great weekend and can stay inside out of the extreme heat.

Cathy said...

Love your pictures. I love to stop and take pictures of corn fields and other crops too. Hubby probably thinks I'm strange, but he's always willing to stop for me. lol

Your party looks so fun. I would love to see the teeth! lol

Annie said...

So much beauty around. Love seeing the corn fields that feed America.
I loved the little band photos! What a great party that must have been.
:) Have the best weekend ever.

Karen said...

Fun seeing all your pics today. I like that cornfield pic. Those are some tall corn stalks

Terri D said...

Old photos full of fun!! I also love your cornfields!! Yes, I grew up in Ohio and we always said the corn should be knee-high by the 4th of July! Happy Friday!!

Farm fields are always wonderful to see. Nice collection this week - have a great weekend!

Love those memories from the past...looks like that was a fun place to work. I know work is not always fun and games, but it is great when co workers can come together and have fun and some good laughs and make happy memories. Loved all your pictures, especially the cornfields...I miss seeing those. We used to live in Ohio, where cornfields were quite the normal thing to see on a ride in the country. I hope you have a marvelous weekend. I enjoyed this little trip down memory lane and also in your neighborhood with you.

I see you commented first - to check and see if you fixed it you would have to delete that comment and let me try to comment again.

It is nice to be able to go back and see old pictures and remember old friends - so tell me what ministry were you in?

Toni said...

Hi Nonnie, Enjoyed all your photos especially the summer sky photos. Got a chuckle on the everything grows big in Texas with your friend's hubby in the cornfield. Have a day ahead of blessings my friend.

I enjoyed walking with you down memory lane. Memories are precious. Enjoy your weekend.

Sweet memories! Thanks for sharing! I love the fotos of the corn fields and the sky! 💜 Thanks for being faithful to join in each week. I'm sorry it takes so long for me to comment.

Jill said...

These are such lovely photos :-) I never liked going through the corn mazes that were set up in the fall... I've always had a fear of getting lost in the corn some how, lol. Hope you are doing well and your week is off to a great start!
