Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

A Peaceful Snowy Morning

It snowed last night while we were asleep. This morning my backyard is a winter wonderland. I took Koda out at 5:30 am to play. I know...I'm nuts. But as I walked  beneath the firs in the quiet of the morning, looking up through snowy boughs into the dark winter sky; it was something more than magical...
it was...spiritual.

When I came inside I opened my Bible to II Peter 1:2 and read from the amplified version...

May grace (God's favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full , personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

That is my prayer for you today. That you  (and I) will experience peace, the Biblical definition of peace:

Perfect well being
 all necessary good
all spiritual prosperity 
 freedom from fears
 and agitating passions
and moral conflicts.
