To all my Faithful Friends and Followers in Blog land I will be absent for a couple of weeks.

July's Garden Journal Page
Work, home and the garden are demanding some extra attention.

Will stop by to visit you when time allows.

In the meantime I'll be "Looking Up" for all of You!

Take care - see you soon.

Good Report

  It is always wonderful when one receives a good report.    This was the case with my Mom's procedure.   All went well.   No surgery necessary.  

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.    They really worked.

Summer is in full swing and so is the garden.
With all the rain we have recently received everything is lush.

These Star Gazer lilies are so fragrant.   They add lovely color this time of the year to a shady bed.

The day lilies are still continuing to spread their charm.    Some of the later ones are real dazzlers.

This patch of green beans has went wild.   Looks like I will soon be busy harvesting their bounty.

Isn't summer wonderful!!

Hope everyone is enjoying theirs.  I will be stopping by to visit with each of you soon.   In the meantime have a wonderful week.   God Bless!

Keeping the Faith

In life we often have challenges that seem to come out of nowhere.   Often they tiptoe through the back door.  When we turn around there they are sitting at the table.

Generally they don't come alone.   They bring companions.  Soon every chair is taken and one is faced with the overwhelming task of prioritizing which needs attention first.
This has been my parents' experience for the past several months.

Tomorrow my dear mom will be having a medical procedure done in a near by hospital.  What the outcome will be is yet unknown.  I am hopeful that all will be well.

 It is scary when we have to surrender our loved one into someone else's hands.   No one can be certain that things will go smoothly.   Sometimes they do...sometimes not.

Keeping the faith in spite of uncertainty is never easy.   Yet without it life can be a dark place.  In the end  "The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love."   Gal.5:6

Tonight as this post comes to a close I encourage any of you who might be in the midst of some big challenge to keep the faith.   God loves it when we take time to look up!!

P.S.  If you are so inclined would you take a moment and look up for my Mom tomorrow!   I would so appreciate it.   Thank you!

Sunday's View

"I lift up my eyes to the hills- where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.   Psalm 121:1&2 (NIV)

Thank you for letting me share this Sunday's view.   Have a wonderful week.   God Bless!

Today I found contentment.

It was in adding a few finishing touches...

     listening to the flowers whisper...

Shelby-turned 18 mos. July 4th 
catching a loving gaze...

 and creating something new.

"...for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances."
Philippians 4:11 NIV

Hope all of you found some contentment today.

Thank you for stopping by to visit.   God Bless!

Everywhere I look there are inspirations to be found.

Weeds that grow along a fence row...

Garden flowers that have delicate petals and interesting seed pods...

Fruits and things that are wild...

 a friend curled up on an old quilt...

 the cardinal on a branch.

All these inspire me.   Would love to know what is inspiring you.

Have a beautiful week - God bless!
