I finished Blogging from A to Z April Challenge last Sunday
Another Scripture memory challenge has started.


  1. Lovely thankful things! What a blessing the Scripture memory challenges must be, i'd never heard of them.

  2. I always enjoy seeing your photos and the simplicity and elegance of your ten things of thankful posts. Purple flowers and the kite festival are especially lovely.

  3. I love your photo thankfuls! You share such lovely pictures that I want to experience all those things too! It is a perfect time of year to be outdoors enjoying the beauty of creation. I love the colorful carp streamers too! Do you eat the oak leaves that the rice cakes are wrapped in? Congrats to you on finishing the A-Z for another year, yours was one of the most clever themes, I looked forward to it so much each day! Memorizing Scripture is a great challenge to participate in, once you've memorized one, it will come back to you when you need it most! Have a beautiful weekend and a really good week ahead Romi, and thank you for sharing with us at TToT! <3

  4. Congrats on the completion of the A to Z Challenge, no easy task, that.

  5. Oh, Romi, how I love your photo thankfuls! So good to "see" you here!
    Coffee in the morning...absolutely. Having mine now, so...cheers!

  6. Beautiful photographs! I especially love blue skies when there are hardly any clouds :)

  7. I can not tell you how much that photo made me long to be there walking amidst those carp streamers! That seems soothing and rejuvenating all at once.

  8. You have shared lovely photos. Congratulations on completing the A to Z challenge. That takes some dedication.
    Colossians 3:15 is a favorite of mine.
