Saturday morning...

This is my first Saturday morning on my sunporch...I got up early grabbed my bible, my devotional, something sweet and started fresh coffee in my little coffee pot...


Shhh...hear that?   I love the stillness...just the birds scurrying about...bathing in the birdbath and the sound of the little waterfall in the pond...



Such a perfect setting for reflection, giving thanks and counting my blessings...


This adorable collection of strawberry's was a "just because" gift from my sweet sister in law.  She knows they've caught my fancy of late and has been collecting them along the way...
Some old, some new...
but all perfectly, perfect.

One more person in my life to be thankful for...

I hope you take a minute today to count your blessings.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Patty

What a pretty strawberry collection. How sweet of your sister-in-law to get them for you. Now you can think of her and be reminded of her kindness every time you see them.
Have a nice weekend.

That sounds absolutely wonderful. It is so refreshing to take a quiet morning with just you and God, away from distraction and in the stillness of the morning!

I wanted to let you know I am sending out your Whimsy Jar today! :)

I love those kind of mornings - when I'm up before anyone else and can enjoy God's creation in a peaceful setting. (You described it beautifully). That strawberry dishe, server, and glasses are so pretty. I love the pretty vignette you created with the picnic basket. I also love that pillow on the chair in your header. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things Sat. I'm so glad you did, because it brought me over to see your blog. laurie

I'm with all the others. My favorite time is the early morning with God's creation before 'the world' wakes us and takes over.
Very pretty strawberry dishes too.
