Outdoor Wednesday

My daughter just returned from a 3 week visit to Russia.  There are so many beautiful and colorful sights.

Pink and Green

Pink and Green is the perfect summer time color.  Grass is growing and flowers are blooming after a long winter.

 Lenox dishes and pink depression glass.  Perfect for this time of year!

"There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken.

Reaping a Harvest

Every single morning when I get up, I have to decide what I am going to wear. Sometimes it is an easy decision, other times it is tough. There are days when I look in the mirror and sigh (hurmph). Do I look sharp or frumpy.

But each and every day, the garden is dressed with no cares.

Happy Father's Day

"'Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.
Deut. 5:16

Lazy days of summer

I have always loved blue, so when I found these Martha Stewart napkins, I could picture a blue and yellow summer table.

Scripture Sunday

Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
Let such as love Your salvation say continually,
"The Lord be magnified!"
But I am poor and needy,
Yet the Lord thinks upon me.
You are my help and deliverer,
Do not delay, O my God.

Psalm 40:16-17

Afternoon Tea

Come with me by the side of the house.  There is a nice quiet spot to enjoy the loveliness of the afternoon.

My heart is so proud. My mind is so unfocused.
I see the things You do through me as great things I have done. And now You gently break me, then lovingly You take me and hold me as my father and mold me as my maker.

Summer eats

Coleslaw is a summer staple around our house.  At the first cook-out this year, Memorial Day, I always make our favorite recipe.  Usually we shred cabbage and grate carrots to make it fresh, but this year we decided to try it from the bag, adding my own slaw dressing.
