Two weeks ago, I joined the little Methodist church in the small village of Lakeport.  My only regret, is that I didn't go with my sister before she died.  I love this church, and the people are so genuine and full of love and grace.  I take my nieces now, and today one of the members kindly took our picture outside the front of the church.  Aren't these girls precious!?  I just dropped them off at home, I'm wiped out!  I really need to get more toys, games, and activities for young hands.  They truly are the little delights of my heart.  How was your Sunday?

Hollyhock Heaven

 I was so excited to see my double hollyhocks
that I planted last year, finally opened!
They remind me of tissue flowers,
the prettiest pinky peach.
I see I need to get more plants!

Time With the Girls

 My beautiful great nieces spent the week-end with me.
We started Sunday by going to church.
All ready to go, Kayla posed in her
pretty dress. Pretty dress,
on a gorgeous girl!
 After church, Jenna wanted to
pose in my cone flowers.
 She picked her own poses,
I think she did a cute job!
 She asked if she could take some
pictures with my camera,
so I set her lose. Above is
Robyn's flower basket,
 then one she took of me.
I think she did a great job, getting
this picture of a frog she 
found in the grass.
Then, she did a picture of herself.
I think she has some talent,
don't you!?

Prayer Garden

My Memorial Prayer Garden
is growing beautifully. 
I've added a wrought iron cross
which makes it such a sanctuary.
I sit here several times a day,
just soaking up the beauty,

enjoying the hummingbirds
that frequent the feeder,

the songs of the birds
and the sounds and feel of the breeze
whispering through the pines.
Every morning and every evening,
this becomes my outdoor church,
the perfect place to give thanks and praise,
and lift my prayer petitions to the Lord.
I am surrounded by perfect peace.

Where Oh Where DId My Little Blog Go!?

Well Blogger,
was this a joke?
Yesterday my blog disappeared,
and to think I lost almost five years of
posts and memories had me so upset!
Well, I don't know what happened, no  
matter what I did, it just kept coming up
that there was no such blog.
But lo and behold, today it's back!
Thank God! 
I hope this doesn't happen to any of you,
it's very disheartening.
So, I don't need the other blog I set up,
and will continue on!
