and the livin' is easy ........

Summertime is in full swing, so I thought I would take the lunch to the porch.

I like to use quilts I've made for table coverings.

The cups and saucers are Taylor Smith Taylor.

Enjoy your lazy summer days.

Florida destination

Even though I live in Florida, I've only been to St. Augustine twice.

Lots to see at this destination. I've only given  you a little preview of this very old city.

I often find non fiction books much more interesting when there is a personal account shared. Suzanne Eller, author of The Spirit-Led Heart, opened each chapter with interesting and insightful stories. All surrounded by the impact of the Spirit led life.

An easy read, Ms. Eller's book centers around the work of the Holy Spirit and the strength He gives us in our daily walk. Chapter 10 was especially helpful in defining each of the spiritual gifts.

The Spirit-Led Heart is a timely message. As we are constantly being pushed to be more self sufficient in this fast paced world, we need to take time to reflect on the promise the Lord gave in leaving a helper. Not only for the first century church, but for each generation that followed and for us today.The study guide in the back of the book can help you go deeper into faith building and understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.

Take time

The difference between an ordinary day and an extraordinary one is what blossoms in your heart.

Where are the comments?


Over the last two weeks I have not had any comments on either of my blogs. I am assuming that this is due to the changes that took place on May 25th. I apologize if I have not responded to your comments. as I always try to respond if  you leave a comment. And it seems that I have missed countless comments that have been sitting in my moderator file.They appear to be from no-reply bloggers, although I have received from them on my blog before. It is sad and discouraging, because I am just a little blog, not anyone with a business or any type of online affiliates. I posted this explanation of disclosures and policies before. So in case anyone wants to know, and didn't read it before, I am re-posting so that I am making the plain thing - plain.

A cool dip

You know is seems like just a few weeks ago people were still in the middle of frost and cold weather.  Now we are hitting some high temps.  So tell me, wouldn't you love to dip our toes here?

Have you ever come across a rainbow as you are traveling. We often see rainbows after driving through a hard rain. Some are brilliant, while others are dim. We have seen double rainbows race through the sky. But on our last trip, we watched a rainbow become visible all the way to the ground.

Unfortunately, we did not find a pot of gold.
