Of Marigolds & Butterflies

 These orange spots of color which make me happy...
Most of the yard looks sad, but beauty is there if I look for it. 
And I found 5 more caterpillars on the butterfly weed! 
Pictures of them tomorrow :-)

Some Things Stay The Same

It must have brought just as much joy 
way back when this beautiful picture was painted
as it does to me now when I enjoy the lovely things God has created.

Surprise Inside!

Why did God put a star in the center of the apple?

Maybe...just because He can!

Secure, Simple, Sweet Days

Remember when everyone took for granted that parents love their children?
Remember when it was the norm to trust others, especially the neighbor next door?
Remember when the atmosphere was clear and clean enough to see the stars at night?
Remember when families spent time with each other, worked together, prayed together?
Remember when children used their imagination and could truly enjoy little things?
Remember when "murder" was an awful far-away mention, not an everyday thing?
Remember when policemen were respected and our children were in awe of them?
Remember when manners and consideration of others was taught by example? 
Remember when patriotism swelled in every heart because we were grateful?
Remember when you could feel safe, contented, and hopeful for tomorrow?

The world has changed. But this world is not my home; I'm just passing through.
