Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

memorial day

The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth

defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.

We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they

purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood,

and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting

mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should

suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be

cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men."

Samuel Adams

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!!

Lots of Love!!!

Prayer’s Needed!!!


Connor is a little boy in second grade at my son’s school. He has been fighting a

very aggressive form of cancer for four years. Yesterday Connor was having

severe back pain and prominent abdominal distention. Our local children’s

hospital identified the cause of pain and distention to be tumor growth. Will

you join me in praying for this little boy and his family?

“Jesus is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”

Romans 8:34

Cry out to Him for Connor!!!

Thank you!!!

Lots of Love!!!

shell 4

We go to California every summer. We stay for a few weeks in July. One of our

favorite things to do while we are there aside from all the beach activities is

collect shells. I say aside from the beach activities because we do our shell

collecting at the local antique shops. Our favorite is King and Co. for those of

you that are in the area. It is downtown La Jolla Ca. and it is the most beautiful

shop. The tray these shells are on also came from this shop. It is 19th century

Italian and has the most wonderful patina. There is some damage on the top of

the tray so I thought it would be perfect for this display. A friend of mine sent

me a few new shells the other day so I tweaked the arrangement a little and

thought I would share it with you. I love the tiny black and white shells for the

base. They are so cute. I love how it turned out.

I hope everyone had a wonderful week!!!

Lots of Love!!!

There is an area in our town that has beautiful 1920, 1930 and 1940 era homes.

They are adorable cottages with lovely grounds. I was in this area today and

had my camera. I thought I would take some pictures of the entrances to these

homes and share with you!!! I love them all but I think the first and third ones

are my favorite. I hope you like them too!!!

I hope everyone is having a great week!!!

Lots of Love!!!
