SIMPLE PLEASURES: HE'S OUR TREE

Slow-down THURSDAYS

ENJOYING 'SIMPLE PLEASURES'

Thank you to our hostess, Dayle: A Collection of This and That...thinking of people, things, times making us SMILE in big ways.

A past Disciple class honored me (at the end of the year) for facilitating their class. They planted trees for me in Israel...in this Yasir Forest; which is helping rebuild Israel's land ecology...Come....look at His forest:

It makes me smile to think of 'my' trees being on land where Jesus grew, taught, and promised to return there.

Did you smile?

A Disciple teacher - you are pretty versed in the Bible.

How wonderful they thought about you in such a dear way - I love the thought too of having trees where Jesus was.

It makes me smile for you.

I LOVE TO SMILE and I do think Jesus wants smiles to be a part of our lives.

What a wonderful gift from your friends. Truly, they gave the gift that keeps on giving.

I LOVE trees...which is one of the reasons I haven't adjusted to living in a winter climate, where the trees are barren for 6 to 8 months. I am from Florida, where it's ALWAYS green.

Have a lovely day,

Just the thought of a tree growing in Israel because of an honor I was given would make me smile continually! Bless you.

How nice for you!

Hi Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I love the idea of having a tree planted in Israel where Jesus grew and taught. You planted seeds in each of these people in your disciple class that you taught. Those seeds have grown trees sweet friend. I am so thrilled for you.

You have so mande me smile. I have to know did the screen door on the station have one of those bells at the top that rang every time you opened it? I so loved that bell, and there was a window swamp cooler, we would stand in front of it to cool off. It felt so wonderful.

Chick-o-sticks are still one of my favorite. I buy the small bag of them when I go to Wal-Mart. Some things we just don't want to give up.

Thank you for sharing today. I have had so much fun. Hope you had a beautiful day.

Smile sweet friend. Many hugs and much love to you, Sherry
