4 seasons

here is my latest view ... now you've seen all 4 seasons, just as i have, from my dining room window ... awesome, isn't it?

i still have to pinch myself (or leo!) that we were able to move into this condo ... timing timing timing ... i sometimes read my archives to remind me about God's goodness and faithfullness towards us ... and truly, we do not deserve it ... but that is God - He does it anyway!

just wanted to let you know that we have had a good week ... i've been "relearning", once again, how to rest in God ... not to run ahead of Him ... not to take on things that i don't need to ... but instead to wait, listen ... always praying, letting Him know what's on my heart ... making my requests known to Him ... taking time to enjoy ... to spend time with Leo ... to go for a walk ... a bike ride ... clean house ... normal, lovely activities ... :o) ...

my LCD monitor is still out being fixed ... i have this itty bitty blinky monitor - well i can't stay on it as long ... my eyes just can't take it ... so i must close here ...

may God bless you ... as He's blessed me ...

Lurvely view, quite lurvely. Don't mind my accent, I'm just bein' funny.

Sometimes the simple things and activities in life are the best things of all. Oh, who am I kidding, not sometimes but all times. :)

Simply lovely indeed! I am so happy for you both!! It is more beautiful than you would have asked for, isn't it? Living in beautiful places does much to lift one's spirit!! Reminding us of the GIVER!!

How beautiful it is...and how blessed I am to connect to your world. Thank you for all that you share--the love of Jesus, the love of your husband, the love of your fellow bloggers, and sisters and brothers in Christ! Keep on, you are blessing others, even when the going gets rough, especially then!

Catherine said...

I'm so glad you've had a good week!

Saija said...

Sandy ... me too, i think back on how the Lord found us a condo, where none were for sale - and certainly not these ones with garages ... truly an answer to prayer!

elizabeth ... and being right in town has been such a blessing too!

antibk ... thank you for that encouragement ... :o) ... blessings on your Sunday!

catherine ... *relieved sigh* ... me too!! :o)

P.S.
How do you say I love you in finnish?

Saija said...

maggie ann ... ((hugs)) just the thought of you cheers my heart!

lilmtrlgrl ... "min-ah ruk-us-ton sin-oh-ah" that is the way to say it ... and finns say it very rarely - they are serious words to them and only say it when they are lost in love or maybe someone is really ill ... blessings on ya!

Terry said...

Aw Saija... I never knew about your LCD monitor being on the outs!
Yes those old monitors ARE hard on the eys although if you wear light tinted sun glasses, it does seem to help a little.

I swiped this wonderful picture this morning and put it on at the Pals.
It is soooo nice Saija.
Oh.. how we are not only blessed with God's nature but we are also so blessed to have cameras that can take such wonderful photos of the whole glorious event!!...Love Terry
