Relaxing Weekend

Watch your head, Granny! (name that show)


Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We spent the last few days with my dad on 3300 hundred acres of God's beautiful creation. Springtime visits are my favorite. There were blankets of gorgeous wildflowers at every turn. It never ceases to amaze me to see the hidden crevices of beauty God has in store for us every Spring. I often contemplate the wonders He has on hillsides and mountaintops where no human has set foot.

"Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these."

Luke 12:27



This is my favorite place in the world with most of my favorite people doing my favorite things. 

Jeep rides around the property, walking for miles, scouting out unique rocks, petrified wood and shed antlers. There are no T.V.s, no computers, no iPads and no phones. Admittedly we allow extremely limited cell phone use. There is nothing better than to get away from everything and hear only the sounds of your loved ones and God's wild creatures.

"The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein."

Psalm 24:1


I managed to sneak away for a walk one morning. The chorus of birds singing their song of praise enveloped me. The fresh morning air, pungent with sage and dew filled my lungs and I was able to reflect on our blessed life, worship the Lord and thank Him for all of these gifts.

Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!

Psalm 150:6



"I know every bird of the mountains, And everything that moves in the field is Mine."

Psalm 50:11
More to come but I have to go for now!
Grace and Peace,
Adoring Family
