Friday Fotos.....

What a blessed birthday week I've had!!! 
I received several really special gifts.....obviously meant just for me because some of them were owlies!!!
My bestie mailed me four beautiful rustic owl ornaments for my burlap/outdoorsy/rustic CHRIST-mas tree I have planned for next year!!!  Some sweet friends at church got me a huge coffee mug with owls and hearts on much my style!!!  I'll share what Jess is painting for me as soon as she gets it!!!   Pappy got me a beautiful scarf with a place to put charms.....a cross and....of owl!!!  He also took the day off for my birthday, which was a huge blessing in itself because he was also off work on Monday and it's really difficult for him to get a day off, let alone after a holiday!!!  We headed out early Tuesday morning and I took some pics along the way.....

And, when we got home that evening, this is what greeted me from a precious young lady we go to church with.  She and her hubby were the ones who bought Izzy and she just wanted to do something special for me.
This was one of the most delicious cakes I've ever tasted.  
The cake was strawberry and that frosting.....
oh, my.....
it was delicious!!!
I cut it in half and shared it with our kiddos!!!

God truly blessed me this week.....
just like He does every single day.....
it's just a matter of me being thankful!!!

James 1:17
Every good and perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights.

Breathing in Jesus,
