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!

Things I Could Have Said Today

I've been riffling through musty pages of things I've written in the past. I can't find the autumn poem I wanted to post today...but I did find this short piece that I probably wrote after feeling that I had failed to be the person that I wanted to be that day. I think we all can relate.

Things I Could Have Said Today

I love you.
I am sorry.
Thank-you!
You were right.
I was wrong.
Lord, please forgive me.
Lord, please help me.
Can I help you?
Please.
Yes.
Good job!
I will pray for you.
You can do it.
I can do it.
God is able.
I will try.

I think there probably was a reason you couldn't find the autumn poem -- like I needed this reminder, for one...

Hi Debora! I saw your picture on A Femme d'Un Certain Age (my pic is on that same post), and had to stop by and say hello. I suspected your blog title might be from Philippians 4:8, which I'm claiming as my life verse in an increasingly dark world. I'm all about spreading the loveliness!

Hope you'll stop by and visit my blog!

Blessings,

Cindy @ Notes in the Key of Life
