Focusing on the Lovely


  1. Oh what a great list. I focused in on that pot roast! I need to cook one! I loved your blog the minute I opened it and saw your heading. It's really pretty too. Thanks for coming by and leaving your sweet Christmas comment. I noticed you linked I haven't looked yet. I will as soon as I answer comments! Thanks for joining me. I hope that it can be used to share the real meaning of Christmas. Thank you for joining me!

  2. A good reminder especially in the business of my day today. Thanks. Visitng from A Delightsome Life this morning. Happy Thursday!

  3. Good morning Linda, I do hope you find time for some of your favorite things today.

  4. That pie looks good!
    Sometimes in the business of life, it's "therapeutic" to take a moment and count all the little blessings like smoothies and singing in the shower. :)

    I hope you are having a wonderful week, Mrs. Lane!

    Blessings and Prayers,


  5. God bless you, Ty. I pray you'll have a peaceful, productive week and that you will feel God's presence in the person of the Holy Spirit.

  6. Ah what a great list! Really made me smile :D

  7. Thanks Lizzy. What's on your list?

  8. I just love your "first love" item--rainy days. That just shows such a love of life to me at least. Only people with happy spirits would ever put a rainy day first or even last on a list of favorite. You must be a real fun person to be with! Lord bless!

  9. Great blog post idea1 Love your list! Many are my favorite things too!

  10. What a fun way to remember to stop and be thankful. A few of my favorite things are arrowhead sparkling raspberry lime water, playing games with my husband, morning breath hugs from my children, and heated mattress pads in the winter. Thanks for reminding me to take a moment and be thankful this morning. Stopping by from Thriving Thursdays.

  11. Hello Crystal,
    I loved the heated mattress pad I had years ago. Morning hugs are wonderful!

  12. Great minds think alike. Grin~
    Have a great week AnnMarie. I'll come for a visit.

  13. Wonderful list, Laura - we should all do this more often! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

  14. Kathy,
    I should enjoy my favorite things more often instead of being distracted by the troubles of life.


Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
