Sweet Friday Pretties...

My Goodness!
It's time for Friday Pretties again.
Time Goes So Fast!!!

Soooo...
Is it too soon for jelly beans?
I bought these jelly beans because I 
L-O-V-E-D
the colors.
Also, because I don't really like eating 
them so I din't think I would be tempted...
Well, I was wrong,
 because they are
 Sour Patch Jelly Beans
and they are
YUMMY!

Today was such a good, good day!
My sister, Sherrie, had her 
port removed today.
(She's doing great tonight)
Her oncologist insisted-
I would consider that
 very encouraging.
:)

We are thanking God today,
and every day,
 for His amazing gift of
 LIFE! 
Both temporal and eternal.
&
Thank You Lord for Her!

Happy, Happy Friday!
Please take time to enjoy
the blogs that linked up
today on my sidebar.
Very Pretty...

Praises to our Father for the healing hand He placed on your sister!

I guess it's always jelly bean time if you ask husband but I like you am not tempted at all... But now you go and tell me there are sour patch jelly beans..... I was thinking how he would really love those because they had all that extra sugar all over them!

Love LOVE the music!!

Enjoy this wonderful weekend with Sherrie doing so much better. Now that I know there is a need I will write her name down in my morning prayer list and lift her up every morning. Please keep us posted on her recovery.

Sour Patch makes jelly beans? Oh man, that is yummy!!! And you are right, they are pretty too:)

I am so happy to hear your sis had her port removed and that she is doing great. Keep enjoying your time with her!!! See you soon!

Honey said...

It is never to early for Easter candy in my book. :) Those jelly beans look very pretty in that dish. I am glad you are getting to spend time with your sweet sissy. And so thankful that the port is outta there! What a good sign for her. :)

Becky said...

Love those colors, Joyce! Hope you girls are having a ball at your "Bye Bye Port" celebration! :)

Love you, girl!

Congrats!! and love the jelly beans! They look soo springy! and seem like they would taste very good! :)

LadyV said...

Jellybeans are always welcomed in my house, for eating or just placed in a pretty bowl to enjoy the colours--Jellybeans and Spring, they just go together :-)

Farm Girl said...

Praise God for all of His mercies. I am so happy for your family. I love those jellybeans and the colors, maybe I wouldn't eat them if they were sour. :) Have a wonderful weekend.

The Garden Bell said...

I so have found a new favorite place to visit each and every Friday. As Koralee, will testify for me. I koow I can be a little out there, but it's always a fun ride in my garden. OH, I forgot all about that song. I'll have to keep that in mind for a future posting real soon. And by the way, I have eyeing up one of those white glass charmers with the changeable ribbons for a long long time now. You rock.

Sweet weekend Wishes,
Kate

Maria said...

Thanking God with you tonight for the encouraging news and new comforts for your sister...
Your jelly beans are right in line with my thinking today...as we continue to get more snow {one foot so far today} I'm thinking Spring, just the same!
*have a happy and peaceful weekend*

YAY!!! What great news! and the jelly beans look pretty yummy. Enjoy your week end.

pollydove said...

Hurray for Sherrie and for you Joyce! Those jelly bellies look as good as they sound ... sour? YUM! (I will try to do my wedding dress post on a Friday! Send me yours!!!!)

KarenB said...

How encouraging! God can do amazing things. I love the pretty jelly beans. Jelly beans aren't my favorite either. I buy them more to decorate with. Our Target even had the Jelly Belly bins and I would mix and match colors for whatever season it was. I must've been the only one, because they pulled them out. Those look very, very tempting.

Brenda Kula said...

You have such a cheerful and beautiful blog to visit!
