I like this photo that I took recently. I am trying to have a sense of humor right now, I wanted to use it in some manner. We are in the process of downsizing and that includes moving. It’s been eight years since our big move from California. So considering that I am soon to be eight years older, I understand why I am not as energetic.. I look forward to new and to change. And getting some rest..
As I looked at this photo, my immediate thought was “Boundaries.”
more love and respect, is what we need, kinder and giving is good indeed, setting boundaries to protect human life and those in the wild. God help me this New Year to see with new eyes, to be a better human as the days of my life fly by. grant me wisdom in all that i do and to make a difference, aligned with your point of view..r gould
Today we went to one of our favorite coffee shop’s for lunch. It is located in the town of Brownsville, Or. I was pleased to discover a charming little store next door, that has recently opened. The proprietor, Dana, gave me permission to take photos and of course I was thrilled.
Not 2 Shabbee is my kind of place.. A little mixture of this and that, with a lot of vintage charm and beautiful handmade items. Come along with me on this tour. It will only take a few minutes.
And just one more..
As you can see, Dana has a flair for decorating. It is so well put together. I sure hope you enjoyed the brief visit. I look forward to going back, when we are in the area. Thank you, Dana, for allowing me to browse with my camera. I wish you the best!
We woke up this morning to a slight covering of snow. It is always a thrill for me to watch snow-falling. I recently saw a picture of a frozen bubbles,so I prepared myself for the moment of hoping to capture a frozen bubble. It didn’t happen, but for that moment, I was like a kid, with snowflakes in my hair, blowing bubbles and trying to take pictures. The older I get, my gratitude for each day and each year increases. The simple things that I have taken for granted, have become so much more meaningful. I am often in awe of the grandeur of nature, in the kind face of a human, in the gentle tone of a caring individual, the miracle of an infant, and sweet endearing look from a furry friend. Unconditional love… May we enter the New Year with Hope planted in our hearts and continued prayer for a better tomorrow.
I wonder how many of us have been hovering over our plants looking for signs of newness, signs of life in the form of blooms. We have not seen a single snowflake this winter. Maybe a few of you would have been willing to auction some of your snow off to the highest bidder. I like new beginnings and I may be repeating myself but it is true. I appreciate opportunities that allow me to make improvements, to change for the better, to make better choices and decisions. This time of the year represents for many, New Life, Resurrection. A new day to revive perhaps what has gotten stale in our daily regime. Here is a little preview of what’s happening in our yard. I see beauty in the face of a flower. Ladybugs are a reminder that all is ok and that God is in control..
The detail on this pansy blows me away and blesses my soul..
We are called to walk by faith and not by sight. We were not seeing signs of spring, and even though we knew it was coming we wanted to see evidence. The little plants were doing their thing underneath the blanket of cold. Surviving without our help. Being patient and waiting for their time to shine and put a smile on our faces..
