Mellow Yellow Monday...

Posted by PicasaSunflowers are one of my favorite flowers.  They look so cheery and friendly!!   Some of us are in the middle of very wintery weather, so I thought this collage may cheer us up!   I am linking this to Mellow Yellow Monday and Mosaic Monday  I am also linking to a "newbie" site at Debbie Doos

Today, I am very thankful for small answers to prayer....God answered and I am resting in Him to continue to work out the details for some of the steps my son, Ben, has to take in deciding what he wants to do after graduation this year.  Sometimes being a mom and letting your kids go is a tough one, but it is teaching me that I have to  pray more and trust God to work in my boys lives.

Thats what I am thankful for today on this wintery Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for checkin in :)

Getting children launched is a fun challenge.

Your sunflowers are so cheery - a good thing to combat all the snow you've been having.

It is so very hard to let go. I have my first child getting married this summer...happy and a little sad too. I have a weekly linky party called NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS…would love to have you come by and join in on the fun…also having a GIVEAWAY going on…it’s a $65 gift card and some goodies from me!

Your mosaic did put a smile on my face. How can you help it with the lovely sunflower. Wonderful.

Lesa said...

Yes, just what we need to ward off winter blues!! I already commented back to you in my com-box but I will repeat it here: Don't you dare send any snow from Alberta!!!! hahaahha We are expecting near blizzard conditions Tuesday-- in Oklahoma of all places!
Thanks for the visit!

It is sooo hard to let our kids go! I feel your pain! Love your blog! I am a follower from Debbie's newbie party!

Love your sunflowers and your resting in God. It's hard to let your kids grown. My daughter is graduating from college in June and taking an internship in Hilton Head, SC. It is such a wonderful opportunity, but so hard to let her go so far away. Time to lean a little harder on Jesus.

Such a lovely collage for what is turning out to be a rather horrid day, thanks for shring!

My boys aren't even two yet and already I worry about them leaving home to find their way.

Your post certainly strikes a chord in my heart. I've had a rough two years in learning that lesson of letting go and praying more. My daughter is 20. She's had to find her own way. I thought I could help her figure it out but it was something she had to do for herself. She's away at college and I miss her so much but I know it was time for her to spread her wings and fly. I have two boys at home. My children are far apart in ages so maybe by the time my youngest gets to that stage, I'll be a pro.
Finding you via Debbie's Newbie party. I'm your newest follower and would be delighted to have you follow me back!
Blessings!

I'm thankful for my Great Dane and for the skill of the surgeons who saved him 13 days ago - and I'm thankful for this first day of a new month!
.....and I have a bouquet of flowers - including a sun flower - on the kitchen table!

Janet said...

I found your blog through the newbie party. I can relate to your post about your children , as I have three now that are trying to find the direction for their lives. As their mom, I am constantly praying for them, too! I'll be your newest follower!
Blessings,
Janet

Your collage is very cheerful. I need a good shot of warm weather as we are enduring the second day of an ice storm.
