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!

...and the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air; gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave...o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

I always get a lump in my throat when I hear that old anthem; when I see Old Glory flying high; when a soldier salutes tall and proud; and when fireworks sizzle on the 4th of July...

God Bless America!

It was kind of cute.. on the 4th of July we had our girls and their families for dinner, just because on Wed is family day here... The grands from Indonesia walked in the door singing that part of the anthem for the grands from the US ...It was probably the only time we've ever had them all together on this day.
