About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

God is an Artist

We were out in the county yesterday.
No cell phone signal, way out there, county.

And it was heavenly.

A precious young lady was turning 18 and we were invited to come and celebrate.

There were horses...

lots of great food...

chickies to hold...

and secret hiding places to discover.

(Still hoping the ticks did not discover the hiders.)



and fluffy critters.

The sun was golden on the trees

and I had to work fast to capture moments that were over all to quickly.

The family prayed.
They thanked God for their friends, family and most of all their birthday girl.

Here she is hugging her Mom.

I stood there praying silently and feeling blessed as I shared this day with my friends.

A comment was made about how God weaves us together like a tapestry.

God is an artist in every sense of the word.

You better believe He is! I see His handprints on everything I encounter. I day without a cell phone signal is one I dream of! Beautiful pictures, as always, Lori! Oh, and by the way, how did you manage to get your header centered? I made one for my blog, but it's way off to the left. Any suggestions?
