More Than Froth and Bubble

There was a very intriguing package waiting for me when I arrived home after my week of cooking at camp....

My girls ohhhhhed and ahhhhhhhed with me, as we admired it's contents.
 such a special treat from a sweet, young blogger.


I love connections and connecting...my favorite aspect of blogging is this,
so to be able to have a tangible reminder in my hands of connections, and how important they are, makes me so happy....
                     thank-you again Megan for the give-away.You are so kind.

although there was a lot to catch up on after a week away, we made time to get out on the water on a near by lake...

my philosophy; 
work will wait....children grow up too quick.
so make the most of moments....before they are gone, 
and you wonder where they went.

filling a barrel with bubbles yesterday...(a game for the kids at our family reunion)

                          as I watched I thought of the quote...

            "Life is mostly froth and bubble,two things stand like stone,
            Kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own".(Adam Lindsay Gordon.)

   I'm thankful for a life that is rich, and not just froth and bubble.
for relationships that are meaningful but also teach me grace and mercy.

I'm thankful for the unknown, because I know the Hand who holds it will never stop holding me.

So I pause here on the threshold of a new week....breathe in peace...
                                                            and slowly exhale.



  1. Don't you just love surprises like that...right out of the blue. And such a pretty one too.

    I like your closing...breathe in peace and exhale slowly. It felt like that all day today. It was lovely.

  2. Glad you made space to get out on a nearby lake! Those kinds of times are the refreshing and memory-making ones:) Also glad your package arrived~Blessings to you, Lucy.

  3. Happy to see the box arrived :) Beautiful pictures of the lake and beautiful words to start the week.


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
