Happy Friday Friends

Hope everyone is having a good week.  I've been dragging since Tuesday night.  

I went outside this morning and enjoyed my large cup of coffee, visits from two butterflies, the gorgeous blue sky and the many flowers blooming.  Some birds and squirrels visited and even a hawk landed in my oak tree and left my little critters alone.   

I took a few moments to pray and thank him for all this beauty, it was just what I needed to lift my spirits.  Afterwards I went to get my camera because I wanted to share all this beauty with you. :)

Hope you are having a beautiful day...

I want to get a decent camera for Christmas. I know its hard to cheer up.. everyone knows from my posts that I have been in the big trash dumpster of life as well.
As much as it sux, it is sucking even more that this may all go longer then BOs terms.. The hispanics are the fastest growing minority, soon they will be a majority. They too like the entitlements, and a true conservative will not ever have a chance of getting elected. I also heard that they are growing so fast in TX that soon TX will go BLUE..instead of RED. : (

Very beautiful. MOM and I always take that morning time to pray and do our devotion drink coffee (well that one is just for MOM, I get a treat). Very important to just stop, breathe and take in the beauty that surrounds us.

Your morning glories make me think of my Mamaw. She had them growing up her back stairs when I was a child.
They always lift my spirits! Your Bougie looks beautiful, too.
Have a great weekend, Marie. :)

I'm clapping and jumping up and down! Beautiful shots! I have yet to capture a butterfly, but I hope to someday, even if it takes a trip to the butterfly museum!

Chatty Crone said...

I used to have some wisteria morning glories like these too! So pretty. What is the name of the red flowers? I know what you mean, but it will be okay. Hugs my friend. sandie

Marie, it was so nice seeing all the color, and pretty flowers and butterflies. Our are long gone. No snow here yet and we did have a couple of sunny but cool days, and now back to grey skies and rain in the forecast.
Loved your post. Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, from Ontario, Canada

I just came bloghopping and can't believe the vibrant colours you have at this time of year. A real pick-me-up for our dark Scottish November days.

Hi Marie,

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your thoughtful comment. I too have felt heavy hearted this week...a disappointing election on top of a hurricane followed by snow has felt like a lot. I find I'm struggling to let go of some of the anger/sadness/disbelief I feel following Tuesday's outcome, and I continually remind myself that God is still on His throne. I am praying for many things right now...I don't think we've seen the end of discord and division and our President has done nothing so far to indicate things will be any different than first time round. I am watching less news, but also feel those who disagree with the direction he leads cannot remain silent.

Sorry to rant here : ) I agree with you that getting outdoors is a spirit lifter. I too take a lot of photos of the beauty that is all around us. It helps!

Great photos!

Lynn Proctor said...

thanks marie, these are amazing shots!!!

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh Marie, your flowers are so beautiful. All of my flowers are gone except for a couple of roses and they won't be around much longer. We have had fog and rain the past few days so I will enjoy your sunshine for a while if you don't mind.
