{ Wacky Wednesday }

 Pappy and I were watching TV together over the weekend and I suddenly realized we were both laughing! I don't even remember what we thought was funny, just that it felt so good to laugh.... together! 
💜 ☺ 💜


 ðŸ 😂

 Don't our problems usually look so much bigger than they really are? 


H💜PE you have a Wonderful Wednesday!

{ A Tuesday Tip }

I believe the writers left out the chapter of my 'Aging 101' book about sensitive gums. Anybody else experiencing this as you get older? Ouch!  I bought the Sensodyne at Walmart for around $5, which was way more than this frugal old gal wanted to pay, but it hurt so much to brush my teeth. Plus, it was supposed to work 'rapidly'. Then, we found the Sensitive at Dollar Tree.... 

and, Y'all, after only a couple of days I can tell a huge difference in the soreness. 

$5 vs $1

Just thought I'd pass this along!

Oh, and there's not really an 'Aging 101' book.... 
but maybe we can all collaborate and write one!

{ SONday Morning - Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus }

I remember the first time I heard this was in the church I grew up in and there was a lady from a neighboring church who came to sing for us. When she sang this song, oh how the lyrics just touched my soul. When I went to YouTube to look it up this morning, the very first one that popped up was this version by Alan Jackson - now I don't believe in coincidences but I do think that the good Lord lets things happen for a specific reason, whether we even know what that reason might be. Before I decided to post today and share this song, I had just typed up a letter to our sponsor child in Guatemala - whose name 'just happens' to be Alan.  And, I had told Pappy on Friday as we were leaving Arby's and a song by Alan Jackson was playing how much I loved to hear him sing.

Do I know why all of this seems to be linked together?


Maybe it's just to make my 💜 happy!

HPE your SONday is full of blessings!

{ Friday Fotos }

I realized today that it's been over 6 months since I last posted anything here at Breathing in Grace.   I actually quit blogging because of some personal family issues that I might someday share with Y'all, but just for old-time's sake here's a foto I took a few weeks ago when I went to meet with a friend. This is a small church down below where she lives and I thought it was just beautiful the way the sun was shining behind the church and highlighting the cross on the I pulled over and took a pic!

HOPE everyone is doing great and life's been treating you well. Most of us keep up with each other on Facebook but I find I don't visit like I should there, either. Life just plain gets tedious sometimes!

Happy, happy weekend to each of you.

(not the shoe-wearing kind)
About face
Change of Heart
(my favorite)

I listed those words because they could all describe this decision, I guess, but a change of heart is truly where it's coming from.  I'm once again coming to 'ya to say that Friday Foto Friends will have to end. I truly thought I could keep it up when I started it back up a few weeks ago, but life has gotten a bit more tedious even since then with family responsibilities and chores and a personal struggle. It's also time to renew the subscription to the linky and I don't want to be spending that extra money on something that is no longer needed.

If someone else would like to take over the FFF linky,
 please don't hesitate to jump in and take off with it! 
 I promise it won't hurt my feelings at all, I'd actually be honored. 

It's truly been fun and I'll keep on posting fotos and funnies on Facebook.

Take care, sweet Friends.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers, as I will you!

Y'all, I totally, completely, absolutely forgot about FFF. It's been a long, busy, stressful week. Hopefully, I'll do better next week.

Feel free to leave your link up in the comments. 

Have a great weekend!

Happy Good Friday!

Y'all, it's been another beautiful week in East Tennessee, but as I write this on Thursday evening, we're expecting thunderstorms, rain and cooler temps the next couple of days. I've worked really hard this week outside spreading mulch and I'm almost finished, at least I'm seeing light at the end of a painful tunnel! 
I've got several fotos to share that I took this week, so here goes.

After church last Sunday, Pappy and I took a drive through one of the local dogwood trails. For those of you who don't know what that is, there's a festival in Knoxville, TN, The Dogwood Arts Festival, and there are several trails throughout Knoxville marked off to drive through and look at all the gorgeous yards.

Took a few fotos of the skies this week.....

Do you see the rainbow?

And, a couple of things blooming in our own yard.....

These azaleas are about 35 years old.

Our pink dogwood.

This iris is from a really old bulb from my Mamaw's house. She had these flowers when I was just a little girl and I'm old, Y'all! I kinda like how this foto turned out.

And, that's that about that as my Mammie used to say, and I find myself saying it a bunch, too. 

(thought this graphic is applicable for Friday Foto Friends)

HOPE everybody has a blessed Resurrection Day celebration!
