Saturday's Scribbles

Good Saturday morning on this beautiful day in Iowa!  We are supposed to see a high of 55 degrees ~~ amazing for this time of year.  Joel plans to go biking and we will go for a long walk outside today.  We have the windows open to bring in some fresh air and we are soaking in the sunshine that has been a rarity all winter.  We have seen so many robins already.....maybe they know something we don't, like an early spring??

Speaking of Spring, I will turn 68 when it arrives this March, and Joel will be 70 in June.  Hard to believe, but grateful for every year.  This age thing goes along with the cataract surgery I had this past Thursday.  Not only is everything brighter, clearer, and lighter but I look older now that I can see.....so does Joel, and of course I had to tell him.  Ha........And I can see the dust around the house again, plus my sofa pillows are the wrong shades of green and navy!  Not too long ago I told Joel the colors on TV were too dull, we needed to change the brightness, etc.  After surgery?  Vivid!  Yeah, this new world I'm waking up to is amazing.  You can read about my recent journey HERE.

Our oldest and her family sent flowers that arrived just a few hours after I arrived home from surgery. What a loving surprise, and great reminder of Spring.


It has been a week of Bible study, worship services, teachings, an online prophetic conference at Bethel, walking, fellowship with friends, surgery and recovery, flowers, and more.  What have you been up to?

It is a day of rest...so....

Until next time............

Renee, I'm so glad to hear about the success of your recent cataract surgery! It must be amazing to be able to *SEE* so much better! The colors (even the wrong shades), and the textures, and the faces of the ones we love (wrinkles and all). The gift of sight is really a miracle, isn't it?!

What's new up here? Beautiful blue skies, cool breezes, shorts and sandals. And enjoying a day of fellowship in Blog Land. God is good, and I am so glad He's with me!!

GOD BLESS!

So glad the surgery went well and you can see so much better...praise the Lord!!! We had some really pretty days and I was able to get out and walk, too...today it's really cold and even saw some snow flurries this morning. Spring, where art thou? ;-) The flowers are so pretty....HOPE you have a great day, sweet Lady.

You are always young at heart! A watercolor artist I know said that her paintings were "garish" after her surgery. I liked them both ways!
