For 2016

Fun Friday with a little help from my friends....

"Every now and again take a good look at something not made with hands- a mountain, a star, the turn of a stream. There will come to you wisdom and patience and solace and, above all, the assurance that you are not alone in the world.” 

God is there... In flowers    In music   In laughter and In thoughts and hopes....



Joyce





DARLA (This is beautiful and  gang you will dance and sing along.)

AN EXTRA LAUGH:




THE LIFTS - I need a lot of lifts these days....





I LOVE THIS QUOTE:

"I'd like to add some beauty to life," said Anne dreamily. "I don't exactly want to make people KNOW more... though I know that IS the noblest ambition... but I'd love to make them have a pleasanter time because of me... to have some little joy or happy thought that would never have existed if I hadn't been born." 

L.M. Montgomery
Nikki










PS I just realized that it is not Friday - Oh vey!

This is a great Fun Friday post, Sandie. As well as the laughs, it is a reminder of the One who holds all things in His hands. He is our strength, our only Hope in this world.

Thoughts and Prayers everyday for you!

Lovely flowers! The women pouring oil on her car engine looks like she's dressing a salad! Ha! Hope you are well, CC :-)

Shelly said...

Oh, I love each of these!

Vee said...

Oh it's a very special week. Thank you for all of these!

Great quotes and fun ones too.

My favorite is the elephant holding the umbrella for his little friend.

Fun and thoughtful post, Sandie. How did they EVER film that squirrel video? Imagine! Take care and have a good Thursday. Susan

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I've been thinking about you this week- thanks for the lifts today and every Friday. I look forward to the smiles you bring. Thanks!

Beth said...

A great post Sandie! My prayers remain with you!

Ginny said...

And for sure, you ARE I my prayers and my heart, Sandie! I think about you a lot! And pray for discernment and peace. And you are right, your savior walks on water. My three faves today are of course boy and dog, the squirrel and hawk...I do not know how they photographed it, right down to the star gleam in the hawks eye! And the helpful man, I even posted that one on Facebook!

Betty said...

I have so many friends going through "stuff" right now. Sometimes life seems so unfair, but no one every said it would be fair. We just have to hang in there and pray.

Really enjoyed that first video!

Betty said...

It's Thursday. :) I had to go look at the calendar. You had me worried.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Happy Thursday to you!
love

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I love the nature video and I was rooting for the squirrel! Great message in the video with the young man. It would be a wonderful world if everyone was as kind and giving. And I really enjoyed the music. I love Andre Rieu's videos. He plays a mean violin, too! (and he's not too hard on the eyes...shhh, don't tell my hubby I said that! lol!)
You're in my thoughts and prayers, Sandie! Take care. Hugs, Cheryl

barbara woods said...

Sweet Tea said...

I was reading along and it never occurred to me that it wasn't Friday! BTW, I love that my Life Guard walks on water!! Hugs & prayers for you, Ms. Sandie.

Denise said...

Loved this, and love you.

Susannah said...

Miss Chatty, I love ya! I forgot three family birthdays this month and was so disappointed in myself ...so now I see it is Thurs. and you thought it was Fri. We must have too much on our minds.

I am in love with the choir and "I will follow Him" and yes, I was singing along. It was beautiful and made me have the shivers. BUT the video with the man who helped so many people rather than helping himself really got to me!!! I could have cried in certain spots. Like the Lord said - "It is better to do unto others...."! You are amazing! These posts have hit so close to my heart. thank you for doing this for all of us out here.

I hope all is going well for you....do what you have to do and get it over with, Dear!

Sue

Debbie said...

I laughed at your realization that it isn't Friday. When I first saw that you had posted, I got a little anxiety attack because I'm supposed to be out of town FRIDAY. True story.
I loved all of them, and I actually picked the same one for a favorite that you did.

I haven't clicked the video links yet, but I'm going to do so now.

Hoping this THURSDAY was a FUN THURSDAY for you in at least one way. Laughter really and truly is medicine. I have seen it work wonders. Hugs and CONTINUED prayers to you, blog friend.

Merlesworld said...

Lee said...

That's okay...when I woke up yesterday morning, I laid there for ages trying to work out what day it was. I thought it was Saturday until about 24 hours later I realised it was Friday! And our Friday arrives about 24 hours before yours does...so I was in a real pickle! Not a cornichon, not a gherkin, but a pickle!

I resemble that OCD one!!! ;)

Dee said...

LOL...Friday or not your post was great....still laughing over the woman pouring oil over the engine. The life insurance video was very touching. Your such a special person to be lifting us up when you are carrying so much yourself.♥

Ann said...

I love them all. I think my favorite may have been the one saying this expecting the best in people isn't working for me :)

Catherine said...

Dear Sandie, Wonderful post with so much inspiration and happiness.
My favorite is the O.C.D. one..really cute.
I love the, I Will Follow Him. really good. The squirrel was simply adorable and endearing. I really was worried there for a minute!
I am keeping you in my prayers.
Blessings and a big hug. Catherine xo

mail4rosey said...

I'm just back today to wish you a Happy Mother's Day. :)

Thank you loved them all I also love that video

Vee said...

Ahhh, yes, the young man who keeps an upbeat attitude and makes such a difference in the lives of others! I knew that I had watched it.

Betsy said...

The diet spoon is the best, a first for me to see for sure. Loved it.

Sharon said...

It doesn't matter what day you posted this - in my heart, it's a Chatty Fun Friday!!

Hope you're doing well. Staying encouraged and comforted. And I really hope you celebrated a wonderful Mother's Day. You certainly deserve it!

My favorite quote was the one about life being lived - even with the ups and downs. Yes, it's true. The Lord doesn't promise an easy life, but He's right there in the trenches with us, building our character, and making us look more and more like His Son!

GOD BLESS!

Dar said...

Great one. You have been on my heart and in my prayers. I have been away from blogging. There has been to much going on - all good - to keep up with things, but I want you to know that I pray for you as you are brought to mind.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

If you think for one moment you are not invited to stay in that little guest room....THINK again! :):)

I nearly fell off my chair at that last one!

And you were right...the video was wonderful. It made my heart so happy to be human.

Love,
Mona
