Start Each Day....

Start each day with a grateful heart

and end it with a prayer of thanks.


In the middle though, it's always nice to......


throw in a few M & M's ;)
(and you thought candle holders were just for candles, didn't you?)
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
Blessings,
Marcia

Farm Girl said...

You too, I think that is a good prescription for life. The M and M's don't hurt either.
I went to a woman's conference called Be Ye Transformed. She said to use M and M's as a signal to make Moment to Moment choices to give our thoughts to God and to choose to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.
I always think of that now. Your pictures are just beautiful. Have a lovely day,

I'm a bit late, it being the 24th but I love your Valentine's post. I always have a Valentine's party for my family and use votive holders to hold M&M's at each persons plate. It's a tradition they love and I do it for every occasion you can buy special colored M&M's for, i.e., Thanksgiving, Christmas, V-Day, Easter. Plus it's my excuse for eating those delicious little treats! Your blog looks great and your photos so pretty. Do you have someone who designs your blog for you or do it yourself? I am in desperate need of a makeover. My blog has remained the same since I started it a couple years ago!

Karen said...

I have this quote hanging over my kitchen stove...and I have the exact same vase :) I'd like to have a handful of those yummy M&Ms. I hope you're having a great week!

Hi Marcia,
I hope you are all fine enjoying the springtime!

Lovely story about the couple belowe, lovely hands! I have a couple of friends that waited for a child for 12 year, then adopted a boy, and suddenly after 20 years she was pregnant and gave birth to a son - so there is always hope!

I wish you all a lovey Easter!

Hugs,
Cathrine :-)
