I love capturing a moment in time, the color, the depth, the tiniest of details for future enjoyment and interpretation.

Great Relationships Don’t Just Happen…

My husband and I celebrated our 23 wedding anniversary this year.  We are a happily married couple…we enjoy spending time with one another and away from one another. 

We are committed to our relationship, our family and one another.  Through the years there have been cloudy days and thorn bushes but we have stayed the course and now we are enjoying sunshine and roses.

Great relationships don’t just happen…they require time and attention much like a well-attended garden.  An unattended garden develops weeds that can ultimately kill even the heartiest plants. 

Treat your marriage like the prized garden that it is…pull the weeds as they pop up, check for creepy crawlers that can cause irritations, fertilize the roots and water regularly.  The quality time you spend tending your garden will result in a beautiful display of love and commitment.

Serve…it matters!

 The human foot and ankle is a strong and complex mechanical structure containing more than 26 bones, 33 joints (20 of which are actively articulated), and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments. 

These feet bear my weight and allow me movement.  These feet served God by uniting with others so we could make a difference in one persons life.  These feet allowed me to serve and that’s all that matters!

Thought for the Day:  Be the hands and feet of Christ.  Serve!

Scripture Verse:  1Peter 4:10 “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.”

Quote of the Day:  “The purpose of life is not to be happy – but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all.” ~Leo Rosten

Today’s photo prompt is BIG! This is a really BIG building being moved from where it was built to its new home site, less than a 1/4 mile…It took about 24 hours using remote controlled transports.

On the Floor…#photoadayjuly

At first glance todays photo prompt sounded like a piece of cake…As I scanned the floor for something to feature on todays #photoadayjuly feature I surprised to find that my floors lacked inspiration…there were a pair of my son’s shoes, my husbands camera bag, our dogs and lots of dust.  There were other less interesting things on the floor…there were rugs, towels, blankets, magazines, dog beds and dog bowls and my feet.  After looking around the house for something to share and snapping and deleting several pictures, I decided on this one…

Best Part…#photoadayjuly

The #photoadayjuly prompt for July 3rd was “the best part of your day”. I could have chosen any number of things for this prompt; my morning cup of coffee, pulling into our tree lined driveway, being met at the door by two very excited puppies or watching my husband cook dinner. However, the favorite part of my day was when I checked my calendar and discovered…

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge…Unfocused

Unfocused….Not seeing clearly, or not giving a clear image, faint, invisible, subtle, blurred, faintly, unseen, fuzzy, undetected.  Without a clear purpose, aim, or direction, unstructured, haphazard, chaotic, undisciplined, disorganized, unplanned, hasty.


Ecclesiastes 6:9 “Better is the sight of the eyes (the enjoyment of what is available to one) than the cravings of wandering desire.  This is also vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility) and a striving after the wind and a feeding on it!
