my first week and weekend off ...

pic taken from the front deck, here at condo central ... thank you Lord for finding us this home! and the panorama that unfolds before us every morning ... views we didn't even realize we had until we moved in!

thank you Lord for the time i've been able to spend with family ... for the bike rides ... weeding of flower beds ... and being around for Leo ... thank you Lord!!!

and summer doesn't even officially start until the 21st!

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise Him, all creatures here below;
praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.Amen.

Wow!! What a view you have Saija...it is wonderful!! You must feel like you are almost in heaven. Please pray for my friend, Betty. She is in the hospital and I am afraid my not come back to this home but may be going to our eternal home soon. She has cancer very bad. I am leaving soon for the hospital again. She is a dear friend. sandy

What a pretty view! My view isn't as lovely, but I'm still anxious to join the unemployed...not to much longer.
Like you, I DO praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!!

I am continually amazed at the wonders of your new home, dear Saija. Pretty soon you will wonder how you ever managed to fit your job into your life, just as Terry said she did in a previous comment. You wouldn't enjoy bike riding if you lived where I live. It's up one hill and down another all the way!

Terry said...

Oh just look at that lovely Manitoba sky Saija!!
I just might have to borrow it one of these days!!.
Blessings on your day...Love Terry

Sandy ... i did pray for your friend Betty ... may the Lord be near to her and her family ...

pat ... i did crop the pic ... i took out the wires and the street ... but this is still what i "see" ... all in the eyes of the beholder! and i'm thrilled for you re your count down to retirement!

sabine ... *chuckling* ... maybe i'd be pushing my bike instead of riding it, in your area!!!

Do I hear the song of an overflowing heart? Overflowing with God's blessings =). I love that song! Your scenery is breathtaking...love the pictures you share too. We had a death in the family this week and its a sorrowing time. God is a wonderful Father to us that know him, and I love...love..love, how he never leaves us nor forsakes us. Say, how about coming over for a game of horseshoes?...grin.
