Friday Loved, Liked & Learned

 I love that the income tax box got taken to the CPA yesterday.  Yippee!

I love that God's Word never ceases to speak to me.  For instance: The 3rd Chapter of the little obscure Book of Zephaniah 3:17.
"The Lord your God is in your midst,
A victorious warrior.
He will exult over you with joy,
He will be quiet in His love,
He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy."

Earlier, He gives a wonderful future promise to the Gentiles that all who call upon Him, He will save and in the millennial age we will worship Him only.
Granddaughter #1 posted this on Facebook this week:
"The best valentine I could ever imagine. Thanks for treating me like a princess and being the man God has intended to be my life partner. I am so blessed by you."

I love that God has given her someone who loves and cherishes her according to His design.  Thank you Brad! They will be married on May 30.
I have liked seeing all the Mardi Gras decorations on the houses in my neighborhood.  In Louisiana, Mardi Gras is a very big thing in the month of February and folks love to use that theme in decorating the outside of their homes.  Of course, some take it a bit further than others.
 Yard flags.

I am being reminded that the longer I go without picking up a paint brush and painting something on a blank canvas, the harder it is to do it.

I am learning that I have to practice, yes, be willing to make a mess with the paints in order to hopefully create something that is pleasing.

I learned that there are not a lot of pretty champagne colored, long dresses out there suitable for 
grandmothers of the bride.

And finally, I learned about this neat DIY idea called an "Encouragement Hanging" from Magnolia Homes and it can be found
Be on the lookout for what you Love, Like and Learn this next week and join me here on Friday.


  1. Good morning! it's such a good feeling isn't it to see our kids and grandkids chose wisely and benefit from making those wise decisions. Don't have any grands old enough to marry yet, but I had a hard enough time with mother of the bride dresses, lol. Can't imagine all the Mardi Gras decorations everywhere. How fun that would be..soo pretty. Enjoy your week-end!

  2. Sweet photo from your granddaughter and I she surly takes after you. Those decorations are amazing. Don't see any of that here in California! Hope you have a nice weekend.

  3. OMG! I love those Mardi Gras decorations, especially the beads on the fence. How cute!

    Chandler and her fiancee make a lovely couple.

    Now, go get that paint brush and get inspired!
