A place to share our love of home, family, and all things we hold to be beautiful, praiseworthy and beloved.
"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things." Phil 4:8

All Things Bright and Beautiful
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful;
The Lord God made them all.
Each little flow'r that opens up,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors and
He made their tiny wings.
Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895)
This morning when the sun was just beginning to peek over the horizon to the East, the woodlands behind the house just seemed to glow. I hastily dressed and tiptoed out with my camera. The words from the hymn that begins, "For the beauty of the earth" ..... and then later the phrase, "Lord of all to thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise" sang in my heart.
