God's Driving

Just when I think I know the direction,
life takes a turn.
We arrived at the country house,
and stayed just long enough to 'smell the roses'...
And then God blessed us with all of the above.
I had not planned to be back in Colorado so soon, 
but as I stood and gazed upon God's artwork,
it occurred to me that
has each of us exactly where HE wants us.
After all is said and done,
GOD is still on the throne, and he has a plan.
I'm happy to let GOD drive this thing called life.

Country House Blooms

Such a welcome sight,
especially when one has been away from the countryside for so long.

The scent of roses in the country air...
There is nothing to compare.
Sitting on the porch sipping morning coffee,
breathing in the sweet perfume.

You are beautiful,
sweet red rose.
Oh how I love you!

An Iris in bloom...
A morning walk around the country house
fills my senses,
and soothes my soul.

Oh how I love to drive through those gates
after a long trip,
and close them behind me.
The Scripture says in Psalm 30:5 that joy comes in the morning.
I choose to wake up every morning and say,
"Father, thank YOU for another beautiful day.
I will be happy.
I will enjoy this day.
I will brighten somebody else's life.
I am choosing to receive Your gift of joy."

Treasures of the Heart

One beautiful antique, hand-painted cloth...
It is HUGE...$15.00
One lovely cloth from India...$10.00
One pair of beaded shoes...
Two necklaces...$15.00 each...
Two earrings...$8.00 each
Two bracelets...$14.oo and $12.00
And more pottery...
Nothing over $10.00
Oh how I LOVE going into little junk (treasure) stores...
The more tumbledown, ramshackle,
the better!!
Another fabulous trip is fast coming to an end,
and we will be returning back to the countryside,
beneath my southern sky.

Do Something Extraordinary

This is your journey,
and yours alone.
Others may walk with you,
but no one can walk it for you...

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another
with no loss of enthusiasm."

Walking in God's Garden

If I had a day that I could give you,
I'd give you
a day just like today.
