Pictorial Tuesday 5 23




These little weed daisy flowers are so cute. Such a joy to view Nature's sharing. Beauty can be found in the most unusual places like a field of weeds. :)

You're Next for sharing a Pictorial favorite. :)

Planters Are Done 'n Planted




Sharing a few pictures of the planters hubby made that I posted about in Pictorial Tuesday. They are all done and flowers planted, and I'm beat. Even with planters, more work than I really wanted. Hubby loved making them so much, I ended up with five. haha

Pictorial Tuesday 5 16



This is from a few years ago and was taken at one of the areas below one of the dams that isn't too far from us. Took the grandson when he was smaller and we found a play park there also.

The weather has turned warm this week, the rains seem to be over for a while, the planters my hubby built me have been treated today so that I can now plant some flowers. Looking forward to being outside with my coffee on the patio or porch. Razzy Fur Baby loves going out and sitting while we enjoy the mornings.



I've decided since too hard to have a flower bed and weed it, I decided that I wanted just planters so hubby built me four for the front of the house. He's new at woodworking, but they turned out just fine for me. Looking forward to a trip to the local nursery and getting flowers in them...maybe tomorrow. What is the saying, if you don't find them handsome at least find them handy. haha

Sunday Scripture Blessings 5 14


Charm and grace are deceptive:
and beauty is vain [because it is not lasting]
but a woman who reverently and worshipfully
fears the LORD she shall be praised.
Proverbs 31:30 Amplified


One day I was thinking about when you meet someone, and this came into my mind. How it would seem from a baby's point of view when our mother's first held us.

The beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul (Audrey Hepburn)

To all the Mothers, Have a Very Happy Mother's Day

When I was growing up, my mom always said to me and my sisters, one of you at least should become a Nurse. I've always remembered those words, and with kind of a remorse because none of us even ventured into the field of nursing.

When my daughter was born, her middle name is after my mom. So when I attended the pinning of my daughter this week-end, my mom and her words popped into my mind. I think she would have been very proud to know that her namesake grand-daughter became a Registered Nurse. I'm very proud of my daughter and what a wonderful Mother's Day gift to be there when she was pinned.

Pictorial Tuesday 5-9



My birthday and Mother's day are close together so each year I get a double celebration, sometimes. Some years the kids are busy and I see them individually over the course of a few weeks or not at all. :) This year, however, all my kids made it and spoiled me rotten. The above Daffodils are from the daughter's family (my grandson picked that flower for me). The lovely hanging basket is from one of my sons and family. They usually give me one of these lovely large baskets each year that they get over at the Amish farms. The other son and his wife came and my DIL cooked a great meal for hubby and I. I was to be lazy.....not hard at all. ;) I also got some lovely gift cards. I felt very blessed and the best gift of all though was spending time with my kids.

Hope everyone has a lovely week ahead. Thanks for sharing with Pictorial Tuesday.

Sunday Scripture Blessings 5 7


Joy and Peace

God came to us because God wanted to join us on the road, to listen to our story, and to help us realize that we are not walking in circles but moving toward the house of peace and joy. This is the great mystery...that continues to give us comfort and consolation: we are not alone on our journey. The God of love who gave us life sent us {His} only Son to be with us at all times and in all places, so that we never have to feel lost in our struggles but always can trust that God walks with us.
Henri J.M. Nouwen

Sunday Scripture Blessings ~ Micah 6


My current study is in Micah. Micah, the 6th of the minor prophets refers to the devastation of Samaria and temporary destruction of Jerusalem. His prophecies of Messiah is that Christ should be born at Bethlehem. A contemporary of Isaiah. A native of Moresheth-gath.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8

The one who breaks open the way will go up before them. The Lord at their head.

Woe to those who plan iniquity. I am planning disaster against this people.

Micah 4
In the last days the mountain of the Lord's temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways so that we may walk in his paths. The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. he will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Everyone will sit under their own vine and under their own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the Lord Almighty has spoken. All the nations may walk in the name of their gods, but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever.

Micah 5
But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his brothers return to join the Israelites. He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they will live securely for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth.

Memories in the Blogosphere

We make friends in this internet world that can touch our lives the same as those friends we meet in the real world. Although we may never see them face to face, nevertheless, they touch our hearts in some ways.


Deb was one that I met early on in the internet world in a writing group around 2006. I'd never ventured into trying to write anything, but had always felt I have a writer locked somewhere inside me as I love the written word. Anyway, Deb was a member of that group. She became a friend in the early years that I was in the group, and enjoyed her commentary on my writing. Everyone in the group was encouraging to one another. Over the years, I met many aspiring writers, and some have gone on to be published.

Deb was later a friend also on Facebook. She always engaged in comments on people's photos and whatever they were sharing. She could also be found to have her opinion, but she most usually gave it with grace. She had started painting again and was excited about it. You could tell the person she was by the way she shared her family through photos and her love of her dogs.

She was a published poet with the Plain Song Review, read her poetry at the South Mill, and an abstract artist who was featured at The Crescent Moon in 2013. She was an avid gardener who loved roses and lilacs, and loved spending time on her deck with her goldens.

I was use to getting on Facebook and checking in with what friends were up to. Eventually, Deb was doing no more posts. She was gone within a short period. There was an empty space now where a virtual friend use to be. That was three years ago, but there are many days that she will pop into my head, and the memory that a virtual friend was gone too soon who had much more to share. I never see or hear about Lilacs that I don't think of Deb because of all the beautiful photos she shared of her beautiful Lilac bushes.

Pictorial Tuesday 4 25

When I went to get my Coffee Sunday morning and looked across the road into the field, there was a pleasant view to watch.









My husband thinks they were probably out because all the farmers are beginning to work in the fields with their machinery or maybe they were just hunting food. We see their prints sometimes in the winter snow, but it has been years since I've seen the deer out this close. They were there for a bit, and then headed back across down the road and off somewhere in the thickets behind us. Such beautiful animals. Seeing these didn't exactly make me giggle, but I certainly had a big smile watching them enjoy their morning.

Happy Tuesday everyone. You're next for sharing. Thank you.

Sunday Scripture Blessings ~ 4 23


You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot attain to it
Psalm 139:5-6 NAS


The Bibles that I have are the King James, The New International Version, and I also have the New American Standard, and Today's English Version, but my Promises Blessings Scripture Verses for everyday of the year small desktop fold over has different versions every day. Today's is this one from MSG and it says it this way, and I kind of like it: I look behind me and you're there, then up ahead and you're there too-your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful-I can't take it all in!

Reassuring presence, coming and going, and it's too wonderful. There is no way we can take in all his glory. He is the great I Am. No other is like God. He surrounds us and is there no matter what the situation. We are covered.

You're next for sharing a Scripture Blessing ~ Thank you.

Pictorial Tuesday Link Up ~ Bubbles







When I was young, Easter meant the beginning of Spring. Kite flying weather, the earth beginning to warm up, sandals could be worn or just go barefoot was the 'go to' thing for me, and of course after Easter signaled that people could now wear white clothes and shoes. And of course, there was always the bubble fun. These photos are from when my grandson had a bigger wand for blowing big bubbles so of course that meant I had to grab a camera to photograph his bubble fun. ~smiles~

You're next for sharing with Pictorial Tuesday. Thanks.

Pictorial Tuesday 4 11



A day on the Lake and a Heron who posed for us






Hubby was so happy with his new huge fishing pole he bought that day, but that is all he caught.
We laughed....and I just had to snap a photo.
He had bought it hoping to get better over the lily pads that grow in the water and catch a big one. ~smiles~ but a fun day never the less.





You're Next for sharing...Thanks :)
