Monday Blues....

No... not that kind of blues. I refuse to give in and let THOSE blues take over...
When I am down or "feeling blue"... as the old saying goes, I remember this!:



God is my rock and my source to BEAT those old blues!

Today I was just thinking about all the blue colors I have in and around my house. It is truly a color I love. SO many shades too! I do love red. It is so cheerful and bold. And yellow. It is bright and sunny...And whites..so serene and clean..
But BLUE! calm and relaxing... Ahhhhhhh



Specially Blue and White combos...












































But my all time FAVORITE blues???!!!!







Dawgs on blue



My gal in blue! pst...**tip from my mom...always wear lipstick and you'll look fine!



Yeah...my guys...all in blue jeans! lovin' that...


And of course these blues... they appear in just about every room in this house. Here is a small one right in front of me as I sit at my computer each day always reminding me to pray....


YOU ALL TELL ME...
What is a favorite color of yours?

When you walk around your nest, it just seems to pop up in almost every room, without you even thinking about it when you put it there????

Thanks for visiting! Some of these pics are repeats from past posts on other subjects. They just fit in with my "blues" today. Hope it wasn't too redundant!! I had fun doing it.
Hugs to you all...Thanks so much for being prayer warriors for our Military!
So grateful...
Billy from Mass. and Justin from Ga. are almost there....just about to return home to the US of A!!!!! OOO-RAH!!!!! and if you don't think their families are just about to float away, think again! Cloud Nine....people!

and oh yeah...if it's cloud NUMBER 9, it's surrounded by BLUE skies! :-)

Hugs to all dropping by here today!

Can't Leave without posting this pic... one of my favorites, you just know (you see it a lot!!) Loving the blue in this sight. It's FLAG DAY! Fly them high!!!!!

late Edit*** ooo-rah I got another letter in my mailbox today dated 5-12-10. He was saying Happy Mother's Day and requesting Pop Tarts and a certain protein shake drink, and making sure I was sending out the pkgs to the other 3 Marines! They will be on their way this Friday!!!! Love that Marine!

Loved this post with all of the blues, Julie. I just took a walk through the house and really the two rooms that have blue are the kitchen (as accents) and the bathroom. The other rooms are shades of green. Interesting. Never thought about how our favorite colors show up without us really thinking about it.

Thanks for sharing about cultivating the attitude of gratitude! It blesses my heart! I loved your description of "barking less and wagging more"...

Hope you have a blessed day today, my friend. Glad you had another letter from Justin. We continue to pray.

Hi Julie,
Missed a lot of everyone's posts due to
my friend being in town. Just trying to
play catch up today.
I love all your "blues". My favorite
colors are anything in the rose family,
along with blues and greens. Those are
the colors most predominant in my home.
So glad you got that letter!!
Grace & Peace,
Sandy
