The Little Things

I bought a couple of these pillows to add to our couch. Good reminder.

It’s been freeze your face cold here. The Quail are huddling.

And with the wind comes an added chill!

Do Not Be Anxious

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?

…“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6: 25-27, 34

These bunnies are looking forward to Spring but are taking the Winter in stride enjoying whatever the weather hits them with.

We had a nice time with my sister and her hubby on Friday evening and Saturday morning. We had a good time at our dinner out. On Saturday morning our kids came over to see aunt and uncle before they took off to Idaho for a couple of nights. On Saturday evening we babysat the grands so their mommy and daddy could have a quiet dinner out by themselves. Our kids on the Coast are digging out from a major snowfall for that side of the mountains. Snow photos popping up all day Saturday in texts and on social media. It continued snowing on Sunday there, too. We didn’t get any snow just temperatures in the single digits and the teens. No outside work. My sister and her hubby will be driving back to the Seattle side of the mountains from Idaho and it sounds like they will have snow all the way home. Praying for their journey. We are supposed to  get 3-6 inches of snow on Monday.

Hope you all have a good President’s Day here in the USA and a good Family Day to our neighbors to the North!

  1. Do you ever miss the SoCal weather? Personally I would like to see a little snow here, but as you know, that will never happen! Well, maybe once every hundred years? Thank you for sharing the “do not be anxious” verses. Sometimes we need to be reminded and it’s very comforting.

    • Sara, I miss our walks on the beach. We get plenty of heat in the summer here. I’ve really enjoyed having 4 distinct seasons. So much we need to keep reminding ourselves of…

  2. I loved seeing all your photos today, especially all those sweet little birds braving the cold weather. I think everyone is looking forward to Spring. Thank you for your verses today.

  3. Thank you so much for the reminder not to be anxious for tomorrow!! My anxiety levels have been at an all time high of late and I know it doesn’t help anything, and yet – there it is! We are in a deep freeze her also with more to come this week. Oh how I long for Spring! Safe travels to your loved ones.

  4. I’m glad you got to go out for dinner. I’m typing this on Monday night, did you get snow? We started getting rain today and our snow is finally starting to melt. Hopefully it will all be gone in a day or two. I love the snow but I’m done now. We got a lot and I’m happy. Now, ready for spring! 🙂

  5. All of your celebrations and visiting with family will make February pass pleasantly! I don’t know about you, but I am kind of setting my sights to spring now. I’m ready for some green!

    But in the meantime, I will “enjoy the little things!”
