Even if you're not doing the Weight Watcher's plan I think anyone wanting to cook & eat healthy will appreciate what they'll find.
Visit Gina & tell me what you think . . .
By the way, if you read my Saturday post you might be interested to know we received 8" of snow. Sunday was a beautiful day & most of the snow melted. I think my tulips are going to be okay!

Our sweet grandson, Ethan . . .
When Jesus was here on Earth, He often took time for children. He held them, blessed them, and told His disciples that their tender innocence and simple faith were the essence of the Kingdom of God.
If you have children, you no doubt know that God has entrusted you with a most precious treasure. He expects you to give them your very best and raise them with an understanding of His goodness and grace.
Just as an archer aims and then shoots an arrow toward his target, God has given you the ability to direct and send forth your children. And He has also given you His word that He will be there to help you, every step of the way.

Simon is still Simon, but does
seen to be a little nicer this season.
He is someone that everyone
loves to hate.
I can't decide who my favorite is,there are a lot of great voices. Lil & Danny sing with great passion. Adam is very talented, but a little weird for my taste. I'm predicting that Megan will go home this week.

Life is full of things to be grateful for ~ small acts of kindness and generosity, words of hope and encouragement, gifts of love and caring. Look around you and see how many you can count in just a few moments.
Perhaps on you drive down the street you passed a tree full of lovely spring blossoms. Or one of your friends sent you a thoughtful card. Or your spouse gave you a long embrace before leaving the house.
A thankful heart takes time to notice those small, precious gifts. Are you thankful for the little things that come your way? Why don't you let God know.

The Oklahoma Redbud is one of the first trees to flower in the early spring,
This blizzard of bright blooms appears in late winter or early spring.
Ideal for tight places or small lots, but will brighten up even the largest yards. Matures to a perfect 20-30 ft. tall, forming a dense, round shape.
Grows in a variety of soils and climates.
Oklahoma Redbuds are often used to accent gardens because they are very compact. However, they make great ornamental trees as well, being able to command attention with their showy purple-red flowers.
These are strong trees with deep root systems.

May the road rise up to meet you.
I sang this 'Irish Blessing' at the end of a friend's wedding many years ago.
Hope your St. Patrick's Day is full of spring sunshine & warm weather!

I have been having the time of my life being a Nana to Ethan. He is changing each day. I could have never imagined the love I would feel for this child! All you grandmas & grandpas know what I'm talking about. I love my husband & son beyond measure, but loving Ethan is almost indescribable! What a miracle he is!
Have a marvelous Monday friends!

When you think about counting your blessings, your mind most likely turns to those you can see~ a warm place to live, food in the fridge, friends and family to hold you close. But, the blessings God showers on you every day go far beyond what you can touch with your hands.
God's blessings include miracles like the process of prayer, a future home in Heaven, and God's ultimate gift of salvation. Although blessings like these are really more than the human mind can understand, they are also easily taken for granted. Take time right now to send God a heartfelt thank you note, via prayer. Ask Him to help your gratitude grow by making you increasingly aware of every blessing He brings your way.
The more we count the blessings we have, the less we crave the luxuries we haven't.

Here's the latest news on Ethan. He was moved into the well baby nursery on Friday because so many babies were admitted to the NICU. He is technically still in the NICU because his breathing is being monitored. Today he will be given a breathing test while sitting in his car seat. He sometimes holds his breath, but then corrects it himself. Tonight he'll be monitored for sleep apnea. If the test shows a problem he will be on a sleep monitor at home. We're hoping he'll be going home on Monday.
Here's Bobby feeding Ethan on Friday. He's eating very well. Mostly he's being fed from the bottle. However, Kari is doing a great job pumping as well as breast feeding.
So precious !
