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!

Where Ordinary Meets Sacred

At daybreak
I am alone with my thoughts
and a warm cup of tea,
I open Your Book
and find
that You were here
waiting for me.
The Words on Your Pages
they burn in my heart
like the bush
that burned unconsumed
And now this morning is sacred
because You met with me here.
How often You make
the ordinary
Sacred!

Lovely. So amazing that we are not consumed but accepted by the Almighty!
