Musing On Old Photographs ...

Do you like old photographs?


I purchased these
at an
Antique Mall

even though they're people I never knew,

something about them fascinates me.

What were they like?
 What did they do? 

What made them laugh?
What made them cry?
I love seeing 
their faces, 
their hair 
and their clothes

I can't see 
their soul,

the essence of 
who they were.

Kinda like this one of 
my granddaughter and her kitty,

maybe you can tell 

a lot from 
that one 
Kinda speaks volumes doesn't it!

First Colors of Spring

 Our garden isn't fancy at all
 but we're always HaPpY to see the first 


Most of these are 

 (also known as Prairie Verbena)

which in my mind 
makes it even 

Our Wildflowers didn't come naturally...

Buzz moved them from here and there


Later this SUMMER the 
"Prairie Verbena" 
will be 

Are you getting as excited about your garden as we are?

Just two more days ...

 The spring has sprung,

I wonder where them birdies is?
A.A.Milne - Winnie the Pooh

we've been seeing 
of birds these past few days,
and it's making us so 

Our trees have almost gotten 
enough for someone to make a home.

Not much to say today;
 I'm just excited that 
 is almost here!

 Blessings Y'all!

 Guess I should mention that
of us has been busy in the garden,

Irish Blessing - Free Graphic

 (graphic design by My Heart's Song)

This Blessing Reminds Me Of

Philippians 4:8
"...whatever is true, whatever is noble, 
whatever is right, whatever is pure, 
whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable ... 
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy ... 
think about such things." 

This is well worth remembering :)

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Sunday Morning - Children are a Gift

They are our Gift
 They Belong to God.

 (Preach it Girl)
We Christians say 
that our kids belong to God,

but I wonder,

do we really let Him 
have them?

Not Me

I thought I was their saviour.

I was sure I could  protect  them
and keep them safe from harm.
I was having a hard time letting go.


This Mom has

Learned to Trust Him,
Wants to Trust Him,
Has to Trust Him,
and loves knowing

they've been His all along!

Hyacinths ...

My pictures aren't the best, 
The smell doesn't come through;
You can't hear the Mockingbirds singing,
or feel the warm breeze,
but just know

It Looks, Sounds and Feels like Spring!

Hope It's the SAME for You!

It's still to early, 
we're eager to fill our pots with 
gobs of flowers

Springtime Inspired - and a Ball of Yarn

 Have you ever seen a tree wrapped in Yarn?

I saw one in an Antique Mall
that captivated me. 
(Sorry ... I didn't take a picture)

I did A
Small Version 
I'd never have the Patience for a
Large Version

It did add a Little Bit of Springtime in our house today.
Making us HapPy!

Couldn't stop There
I raided the Garden Shed
and found
Bundles of Wire
to make this Cute Birds Nest.

I'm Smiling!

Of Course,
I paid homage to Buzz
(my Collector of all things Natural)

Not every 

Wife would let their Husband 
Wasps Nests Indoors,

But I Do.

 Are You Getting SpringTime Inspired?
It's JUST around the Corner you know!

Have a LOVELY Day!

Oh Happy Day

 (photograph edited w/PicMonkey)

Preach it Girl!
When we received YOUR heart in ours

Our hearts became
a place where
Mercy replaced Judgement
Righteousness replaced Sin
Light replaced Darkness
Humility replaced Pride
Love replaced Hate
Life replaced Death

We began our journey of becoming like YOU!

if anyone is in Christ, 
the new creation has come:  
The old has gone, the new is here!"
2 Corinthians 5:17

"Oh Happy Day!"

Balancing Skills, Passions & Burdens

I feel a little bad 

because I've been neglecting my blog lately.

Very few DIY's,
updates or even saying "Hi"!

I haven't given up,

I've just been trying to "organize"
My Life.

Trying to balance my Skills, my Passions and my Burdens.
