Friday Favorites

Every Friday Sandra at Diary of a SAHM gives us the chance to share one of our favorite things. You may have seen pictures of this before but it's something I've enjoyed since the day we moved here, over 20 years ago!
This is the view from our living room window. This beech tree is just huge and is beautiful in every season. It gives me joy to look out and see God's hand at work in every season!


The fall colors are beautiful...



and so is the winter black and white look!

"Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Let all the trees sing for joy!"
Psalm 96:12

I would love looking out my window at that tree every day!

Just wondering how much it had grown in the 20 years you've been there! It is certainly one gorgeous specimen!! Thanks for sharing these lovely photos!

Beautiful pictures Mari! Although I must say the fall picture is my favorite. Would love to see a picture of this tree in the spring and summer as well!

Beeches are one of my favorite kinds of trees! And that one is beautiful! It looks like a great climbing tree, too. :)

Have a great weekend!

Well....I must admit, the Autumn photo is much more pretty than that nasty white stuff. LOL....tho, it is gorgeous looking out from indoors. LOL

Hope you're doing well. And if that virus bug is in your area of Michigan too, I hope you don't get it.

I can see why you love that view! We had two maple trees in the front yard at the parsonage and I liked them all year, but especially in the fall. I miss those trees! :)
