What I Love About the Letter "S" and more!!

I was visiting Denise, and she is playing a game with letters. It's fairly simple--all you have to do is list 10 of your favorite things. But, there is a little stipulation to this game--you have to be assigned a letter by the blogger you are playing with. So, Denise has assigned me the letter "S".

Here are my 10 favorite things that begin with the letter "S" in no particular order:

  • Jesus-- the SON of God
  • Andrew--my SON
  • SUNSETS--particularly at the beach
  • SNOW--when I can stay inside and just admire the pristine beauty of this and not have to shovel it!
  • SAND--squishing between my toes as I'm walking along the beach on the water's edge.
  • STARS--I love standing and looking at the sky on a clear evening and seeing all the stars--reminds me of God's awesome power.
  • SHORTYBEAR'S PLACE--where I can drop by and visit at any time and feel encouraged, inspired and uplifted.
  • SCOUT--my kitty who DOES NOT destroy yarn!! (Yes, I love Miles, too!!)
  • SCRIPTURE--God's Word to us and how He speaks to me through His Word.
  • I know a lot of people whose last name begins with the letter "S". These are all awesome people--you know who you are--and you are some of my favorite things, too!!
There are 10 of my favorite things that begin with with the letter "S". If you'd like to play along, let me know, and I'll give you a letter!!

Now, I have a couple of pictures that I'd like to share. Monday was my friend Linda's 60th birthday, and we had a little party for her at work.

Here she is in her birthday tiara!!

Her birthday wouldn't be complete without some presents representing her favorite football team!! Here she is wearing the poodle cuffs I made her in the Steelers' Black and Gold!!

And we should not forget one of her very favorite presents on this special day!! A miniature Steeler football helmet signed by Rocky Bleiler!!


Oh, I've really got to go--I have one more CHRISTmas present to finish!! Yes, I know it's CHRISTmas Eve, but I'll finish this one last gift!
