Painting - Picking - Puttering

This past week found me painting... picking... puttering in the kitchen and the garden. It was a lovely week filled with all the things I love to do. Hope yours was too! God Bless  Debbie

Keeping those Promises

Poppies & Larkspur Thirty-nine years ago hubby and I promised to love, honor and cherish each other. We are still keeping those promises. "Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails..." 1 Cor. 13: 7 - 8a (NIV) Have a blessed week. Hugs Debbie

A Hidden Blessing

 Seventeen  Year Cicada It is because of him... I am enjoying these sweet cherries.   Every year the birds manage to reap the harvest before me.

Hope you discover a hidden blessing too. Have a lovely week. Hugs Debbie

Shelby Speaking of buzzing - got to go for now.  Someone is waiting for their walk. Thanks for letting me share a bit of this and that.   Will be around to see what is happening in your part of the world. Have a wonderful week. Hugs Debbie "This is th
