13 November

the good

Woolen blankets and quilts grace our bed now

the nights have dipped below freezing

I love cuddling under blankets when I sleep.

the fun

this little fella sits out on the back porch

and greets us when we come home.

the random

We celebrated my brother's 50th last week.

He was a pretty cute little boy way back when....

Over The Moon
The good, the random, the fun
Home matters party

keeping sabbath


But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.

Luke 2:19

There are times when you happen to be glancing at a loved one....

perhaps they are filling a glass of water at the fridge,

or sweeping the kitchen floor,

or watching a certain commercial on TV,

and your heart is filled with such love for them.

You could never put it into words.

It would be like trying to write down the light 

that shines through the window and glistens on their shoulder.

That is when I think of this verse... 

and the earlier one -1:46

My soul doth magnify the Lord.

days of giving thanks

I am thankful that I am able to live so close to the beach.

i am thankful for my husband, Joe, 

who I love with all my heart.

We have known one another since we were 11 years old.

We met playing truth or dare during recess behind the 6th grade elementary school.

He dared to kiss me. 

We have circled around a lot since then...

I've zigged and he's zagged...

we've looped and curly-cued and even done a few straight lines

to get to where we are now.

He's been my inspiration, my guiding star, my best friend, my husband


I am thankful for my daughter, Hannah.

She is getting her masters at Salem University

and working so hard.

She was the first person that I ever loved more than I love myself.


I am thankful for my daughter Bonnie.

She is so sweet and loving and kind.

And she and her fiance, Dan, gave us Verne!


I am so thankful for Verne!

My beautiful grandson!

I am absolutely head over heels in love with him!

30 days of giving thanks

I am thankful for my family.

 My daughters and Joe's sons.

This is a rather old picture from one Thanksgiving a few years ago....

One of the few times we were all together.

It was cold that day but we managed to stand out on 

my mother's porch long enough to get a picture taken.


In everything give thanks for this is the will

of Christ Jesus concerning you.

Thessalonians 5:18
