Thankful Thursday

Yellow Rose Meanings
Meaning of the Yellow Rose is that it indicates a determination to
start anew, to begin afresh!

    107.  My husband's knee replacement surgery has gone well this week and today he comes home from the

          hospital to complete his recovery.  Despite his pain and suffering, he maintains such a marvelous
          attitude, and has such a willingness and determination to press on.  He IS an amazing man and I love
          him dearly!  I am so thankful that he is progressing so well.  I am also thankful for the capable
          surgeon and hospital staff that have been such excellent care takers of him.

108.  I am also thankful for myself recovering from a drug allergy to penicillin that had me covered with
         hives from head to toe this past week and a half.  I have been a little itchy, twitchy, and witchy, but
         am thankfully now on the mend.  

    109.  I am thankful for God's trustworthiness to get us through the trials and difficulties in life. God has been 
             so good to us!  He has brought us through so much, and we have found Him to be faithful.  

    110.  I am thankful for my 3 1/2 year old grandson who asks his mother if they can talk to God.  When 
             things aren't going so well with him, he knows that there is a God who cares and wants him to share 
             his heartfelt needs with Him.  I am thankful for my daughter who is teaching her son to "Take It To
             The Lord in Prayer."  He always ends his prayer with "in baby Jesus' name"...too cute!

Foodie Friday - Scalloped Pineapple

Scalloped Pineapple

Mix 4 c. bread, diced
       2 c. sugar (I use 1 1/2 c.; I find 2 c. a little too sweet.)

Mix:  3 eggs, or equivalent in egg substitute
         1 large can chunk pineapple, drained
         1/2 c. milk
         1/2 c. melted butter

Mix dry ingredients with liquid ingredients.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  

I thanks my friend, Sue White, for the great side dish.  It is so easy and delicious and wonderful with a ham dinner.  It has been on our Easter table for years.

I shall be making this tomorrow for Easter dinner at a dear friend's house.  We always look forward to spending time with our Arizona adopted family, the DeJong's and DeKruifs.

Favorite Things - Cornish Cottages

Oh, how I love thatched cottages!  
So, beautiful with their cottage gardens!
Cadgwith, Cornwall

English Thatched Cottage
Rustic and romantic!

I would enjoy stopping here for a "cream tea", with tea, cones, jam and Cornish clotted cream.
Cornwall by the Sea
This Cornish Cottage tea bag holder and thimble were a gift from my Cornish friend, purchased at her sister's 
gift shop in Cornwall, England.  She also gifted me with a Cornish Flag.   What a delight!

AND, Look at what I just won over at Notes from a Cottage Industry's
Spreading the love..March 2012 Giveaway! 
Just love it all...espcially the thatched cottage salt & peppers!

Devotion - May I Be His Love

 Tears trickle down my checks as I think of the great suffering of our Lord Jesus Christ, who willingly took my sins and the sins of the whole world upon himself at Calvary.  God's wrath was poured out on His Son so that His love and forgiveness could be lavished upon us. This costly redemption plan proves God's great love for mankind.  

"If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.  For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whosoever loses his life for My sake will find it."

I have to question how willing am I to live a crucified life...lay down my pride, self-centeredness, self-reliance, my failures and my inadequacies?  Am I willing to meet Jesus at the cross daily and to surrender all to Him, allowing Him to accomplish His will in me? How humbling it is to consider that the Lord uses me (and you) to reveal Himself to the world by the words that we speak, by the way we treat others, and by the way we handle adversity.  May we choose the crucified life, and may we be His Love to such a needy world.

May I Be His Love

Sometimes I can say all the wrong words.
Sometimes I can think of only me.
I know that my pride can hide the tenderness
that longs to show I care.

May I be His love for you.
May I lift your eyes toward heaven.
May I come to you and lead you to His Light.
May I cry His tears for you.
May I be the place that you can run to,
Where you'll  hear His voice and see Him in my eyes.
All your life, May I be His love

I want to live my life for His glory,
And to hold His Word here in my heart,
To let His Spirit fill every part of me,
So I'll leave Him everywhere.


and I know that only when I follow Him
can I begin to love

(I pray I'll be His love!)


Have a Blessed Day,
