Blessing Wednesday

Good middle-of-the-week to you all! Hope it's going well. Ya'll know what Wednesdays mean around here, so let's get started!

This week I am so thankful for:

~FALL!!  September through December is my favorite time of the year! It takes until about right now for the colors to really start kicking in, so lately I've had some awesomely beautiful mornings around here. Truly God outdid Himself with the color palette when He created fall in Michigan. And He created all these colors simply to give us eye-candy. Yum!

~Slippers. Seriously. I will live in them for the next several months. Quite possibly because I like my house so  cold that I can cocoon myself in sweats, huge socks, and blankets to feel toasty warm.

~Best Sleeping Weather EVER!

~The doctors and nurses treating my father-in-law. We are half-way through his chemo treatment, and today we find out how well it's working. Of course we know our God is bigger than any chemo treatment out there, and THAT I'm truly thankful for.

~My town. I mean, where else can you live smack-dab in the middle of the movie Tangled? We let off 15,000 lanterns this past week as part of Art Prize, an annual art competition/festival we put on.

What are your blessings this week? Come on and count them with me:)


  1. I would have loved to see the lanterns! Amazing. I'm wearing slippers now. But I call them House shoes so...

    I am thankful for Fall as well. Something about the colors and the weather help me take extra notice of my wonderful God!

  2. 15,000 lanterns? That sounds amazing! And praise God for your father-in-law's progress!

    My blessings--fall! Have to agree with you on that one. It's my favorite season. And, I get to visit my nephew Ollie this week. I can't wait!

    1. Ollie is such a cutie- I LOVED the pic of him in his glasses:) Have a great weekend with him!

  3. I love fall as well! Starting to get a bit of color here in the South. What part of MI are you from? I used to live in Midland. Cool lantern picture - and definitely reminded me of Tangled!

    Appreciate your comment at Life Lessons. Thanks for emphasizing the importance of drawing near to God. We have to be intentional in our relationship with the Lord. He never forces us to do anything. Safety can indeed be found when we draw near to Him! He's just waiting for us to come close! God bless you! :)

    1. Oh, I know where Midland is! I'm just outside of Grand Rapids.

      Loved your blog today, it's stuck with me:)

  4. I'm thankful for fall too! It's such a pretty time of year and our weather has been so beautiful and sunny so far. :)
    The lanterns in your town look amazing! I would have loved to have seen that in person.

    1. It's been my favorite entrant into the exhibit this year! I hope it wins:)

      Blessings to you today, Cathy!
