God shows His beauty in our crepe myrtle tree.

And everywhere else. Praise God!❤❤❤

Quilt Progress, Pine Tree and Moon

Never thought I would like such a dark block but I believe this is what hope looks like visually. Darkness may be all around, but Jesus is our bright light like the moon here that makes it all right. Happy place. ❤ 

Oh the Delight of Dusk

My favorite time of the day is dusk in summer. I love the beauty of it, the rich colors of the sunset, the luxurious tranquility, the nature coming alive again, the serenity of swinging on the porch swing and be accepted with it all, one of God’s fellow creations. I have had some very hard days lately (don’t usually try to focus on that) and have cried more than my fair share of loved ones gone. I miss them very much. 💔 But drying my tears, I swing at dusk and here are the remnants of color, birds twittering, the blessings g of a hummingbird, a tree frog emerges from behing the wall sun decoration to eat, flowers are blooming, herbs are growing, talking to God I am calm again. I am thankful and blessed. My tears are dry. I am content that God is with me even if no one else is, which happens. God is all I need and the world He made is incredible! There are so many nuggets of perfection of beauty to feast on. The quilt is coming along. My daughter is in bed. My son is visiting his Grandparents for 2 weeks. Friends gave me a fresh bottle of red wine which go n perfectly with the chocolate cookies I just made. Life is pretty amazing just as it is. All is well. The rest will wait for heaven. Until then, I love you. Get outside. ❤

Outside Work

Truth be told, I have always preferred outside work over I side work. I love being out in nature. It just feels like I am closer to God, more in His direct creation with greens and browns and feeling the earth and caring for the plants. It just feels right, like it is supposed to be. It calms the body with beauty and you breathe in deep with fresh air. You hear the birds singing their songs, see the bugs doing their thing and all of it is just harmony. So I got to work hard and cleaned up the oak tree corner. Now we can swing with greater beauty around us and I am just smiling thinking about it. Be blessed by God today!!

On the Road Again

I started walking again in the early mornings before the kids are up. It is a good time to enjoy God’s nature, pray, contemplate life and get some exercise all at the same time! 🙂 It makes me happy to be back walking. It is like getting a jump start on the day. Nothing profound about it but sure is nice sometimes to just partake of the mundane. 🙂 Have a beautiful day! ❤

Sitting by the Pool

I am sitting by the pool, my kids swimming and having a great time. And there is this beautiful sunset to enjoy and fresh breeze. It always amazes me the clarity and beauty God provides in His nature. He does a really good job of both in the world He made. And no matter what dark noises go bump in the night drawing in around us, we need never fear any of that. You know this when you sit and pray in nature. You feel God’s provision and strength. There is no doubt who is incredibly powerful and quite capable of taking care of us and loves us to boot. There is no doubt. I wish you God’s peace tonight!
