I almost missed it

lost in wonder we sat under  a tree- pensively waiting thoughtfully gazing  we were both praising  the Lord- and anticipating the silent display  a heavenly array  we beheld a glorious sight  while the world kept on spinning  the two of us grinning-   we watched Him turn day into night  One evening last week, I […]

10

Oh my, oh golly- how long it’s been since I have seen that number “10” I’ll shout it from the roof tops, I’ll say it again- It’s the number 10 for the big WIN! Remember my new year’s resolution to get  Lean in ’17?   I am happy to report that I’m still going strong!  In […]

before the sun sets

Before the sun sets  waiting for the afterglow  watching for nightfall  mountains like oceans  undulating clouds like waves  a twilight delight  playing hide and seek  sunlight slips behind slivers  of silver lined clouds  50 shades of blue  the Blue Ridge Mountains aglow  sun sings her swan song  not a single sound  not a plane nor […]

lean on me

The heavens unleashed a downpour around us as the girls and I sat waiting in the drive-thru line.  We were at Chick-fil-a, where everything is their pleasure!  I just love that place!  Not only are they uber pleasant, but their food is always awesome. Anyway, back to my story… We were sitting there and a […]

you get what you need

Long car rides sound like such a fun idea… until things don’t go as planned.  On our way home from visiting our family and friends, we could see a storm brewing up ahead. We were all tired and just wanted to be home. It seemed like the perfect time to stop and have dinner while […]

stop and smell the roses

This week, I celebrated birthday #39, and it was also my 3 year anniversary of starting this blog.  I feel like I’ve been celebrating for a few weeks now, because my hubby surprised me with my birthday gift a bit early.  We took a trip to the beach a few weeks ago, and the day […]

when things get in the way

  We were searching for the perfect view of the sunset the other evening.  In two weeks we will be at the beach where we’ll have a perfect view for 7 straight days!  But why wait? So we went to the lake, hoping to see the sunset.  And wouldn’t you know it- those darned trees […]
