This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other better.  While visiting my blog I would ask that you sign in to join/follow me.  This party will go until July 15th. If you sign in to follow me your name will go into a bucket for my daughter to draw two door prises that might just come your way.  Oh! The exciting things that I have to share with you my dear friend.

So come on --- let's get this party started!!!!

The Sweet Side of Athens, GA

Yesterday we headed the lady in red(my red Explorer) towards
Athens.  The sweet sight of my girl was so welcomed. Errands done, a healthly dinner and then an evening stroll.  There is this wonderful side to Athens that often gets overlooked because she is the home of the Bulldog nation. But that lady has a sweet side to tell about.  Our stroll took us to a time when front porches were a requirement.

A time when the breeze came all the way through the house. And you could even smell outside that momma was in the kichen just a cooking away.

But what a treat was in store for us! We had stopped to admire this beautiful southern belle. This darling of a gal came around the corner.  After asking her if it was ok to take pictures she then said ----why yes, but would you like to come inside for a tour. My girls and I were on the front porch saying yes before she knew it.  Oh my! Oh my! This southern belle was built in 1840. She moved around a bit but put roots down here in 1870.  The inside was filled to the brim with antiques and a world of history.

That evening stroll down the sweet side of Athens, Ga left us with a cup that overflowed.  Thank you Lord for that evening stroll.

A Heavenly Image

A wise man once said that a child's first glimpse of our Heavenly father is our earthly father. In my family that was so.  Daddy was a simple man. The most important thing in life was his family. His laughter would echo through our home. His sacrifice unending. His love circled our family. My sweet Daddy you are missed.


(nothing like the happiness of a new mickey mouse watch!)

 "Come to me and I will give you rest..."
Matthew 11:28

So we came! This is the entrance to our island cottage.  There have been so many wonderful minutes on this sweet island.  And the cottage is just perfect.

This little path leads you to an evening of relaxation.  At the end of this dock we've had many indept conversations but mostly laughter.  CRABS!!!!

Isn't there just something magical about a sea shell.....

But my dear friend there is a secret that I have.  One that I am most excited about.  You will see very soon.  For something will begin to bloom.

My dear sweet one, please check back with me often so that you do not miss this event.....

Today I put some thoughts toward the meaning of passion. One of the thoughts that I had was that passion is a connection of heart, mind, body, and soul.

It also seem to be a step towards a completion of who you are meant to be.

Where ever you are today. Keep this is mind....
