Happy Birthday Joanna, A Prayer Request, and Tea Time Tuesday Reminder.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all enjoyed a beautiful weekend! We had a lovely weekend with warm temperatures and sunshine; perfect for the first of Spring!
Today is my beautiful DIL's birthday! Joanna is married to my oldest son and they have three sweet little boys. They have just bought themselves a new house and are in the middle of renovations which they are doing mostly themselves! I hope she gets to enjoy some cake today!

Here she is with my son. Don't they make a handsome couple?Joanna with her boys; three of my little grandsons. Happy Birthday Joanna!

Today, I also have a prayer request! Renee is a blogger friend of mine who is suffering with uterine cancer and she is scheduled for surgery tomorrow. Please pray for her that all will go well. Click on the link to let her know you are thinking about her and lifting her up in prayer. The Lord bless you, Renee!

Believe it or not, tomorrow is Tea Time Tuesday once again and I hope you will all stop by for tea. Those of you who would like to participate, please let me know in a comment and I will happily add your link to my post. I would love to see your favourite teacups and tea pots. A short story or scripture verse would be lovely too.

Hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless you.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

  9. Hello there Sandi,

    It is lovely to see these precious photos of your family!.., Birthday wishes for your daughter-in-law and certainly prayers for dear Renee!..,

    I love your beautiful and oh so lovely blog!~ I came to visit you from dear Beth's,(from her; 'Food As Art' blog, via her link)..,I also have a 'Tuesday Teatime meme' entitled, 'Tuesday Tea For Two'; this is my 23rd such blog party..,

    When I realized that others were having lots of fun simulntaineously joining along with several similar memes at once, for the past two weeks for instance, I have joined Lady Katherine's Tuesday Tea meme, and and she mine;today I would love to join in with you, if I may?..,

    You are also most warmly welcome to join in with me as well;kind of like a large extended tea party and blog family, if you will! ~ So much fun!

    ~( I will just explain however, that this week, is NOT really the same for me as per usual,in as much as I began a day early , really well aftermidnight on Sunday with my tea post)..,

    ..,( because, I 'have been under the weather', very busy this week also and needed 'to piggy back' on 'Sunday Favorites' meme and 'Blue Mondays'meme post, just in case I did not have the energy to post something new for Tuesday)!..,



    Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

  10. Came in from transforming an old foam pot, the light weight kind, into something that looks SO much better. Tried putting your sweet Precious Moments tea time on my gadgets and after a while, got it to do what I wanted. So there is a link that works! Thanks for the encouragement. Will try another post next week, too. ♥♪

  11. Happy Birthday to your DIL... they make such a pretty couple... blessings to you and yours dear Sandi.... and oh, I'm stopping to share some tea with you... so save a sit for me please! ;)
