My Life in Pics

Hi Friends,
I am glad to be back blogging . Last week I was sick with the flu.I am feeling much better. Before I became sick I did some of my regular errands. Every trip I ride to my destination  through lovely countryside scenes.

At the top of this hill , It almost looks like we are in the Mountains not the Piedmont.

 Bouquets from The Harris Teeter Store where I was double couponing .

 I had to do this very colorful one in B&W  to see the contrast.

I love this cute frog teapot that was with the gift items.

Prizes in a coin machine

A  dinosaurs ride for kids.

Flowers at my granddaughter's friend's home she visited .

 Stopped by Dairy Queen, Vintage pic on their wall.

Went to the Good Will to shop , Here are some finds.I love this cool Wizard of  Oz tote!

Found these vintage faux pearl earrings , will use in crafting .

Pic in Black & White 

 I found this  pretty Rabbit Topiary.It will be great for Spring decorating.

Some of my outdoor yard pics.

Early Moon Rising

Sunset through my backyard woods.

I will leave you this wonderful Bible Verse on this sweet GW Find.

And this poem I love written by Amy Carmichael:

The Age-Long Minute

Thou art the Lord who slept upon the pillow,
Thou art the Lord who soothed the furious sea,
What matter beating  wind and tossing billow
If only we are in the boat with Thee?

Hold us in quiet through the age-long minute
While Thou art silent and the wind is shrill:
Can the boat sink while Thou ,dear Lord ,art in it?
Can the heart faint that waits on Thy will?

  Thanks so much for visiting !
Love & Prayers,

Hi There

Hi There Blogging Friends!
Welcome and Thank you for visiting .Today I am starting out with some drive by picsI took while on a recent shopping trip.With my point & shoot camera , I think the only good pics from driving by I can get is the beautiful sky.

Especially when driving down the highway,but I do pass some interesting structures.I love this yellow Victorian Farmhouse; I love yellow houses!

I think this dilapidated  barn is interesting.

A Water Tower.

And I love this Stone Chapel!It had started raining so that is rain on the windshield.

A stop at Dairy Queen.

A cute sock monkey from the Good Will.

I found this ceramic cat at the GW also. I am thinking about altering it into a Cheshire Cat.

By the time I made to it Walgreens , a deluge was coming down, had to wait in the car for a while.

I missed the rainbow the cashier told me he saw out the window , but the sky after the storm was still very beautiful.

 Flower pics from Target.

 Back Home ,some garden pics. Gazing Ball.

Colorful Gazing Ball

I took this beautiful  sunrise pic last summer at Carolina Beach ,NC.
God does paint beautifully.

 I will leave you with this wonderful Promise from God. 
"Weeping may endure for a night,but Joy comes in the morning !"
Psalm 30:5

Hello Friends,
Happy Monday to you! I really enjoyed The Mad Tea Party, it is something I look forward to every year.Thank you to all  who left a sweet comment and a special Thank you to Vanessa for hosting !
This week I have my first of the month pics,starting off with my table decor . I have a Beach or Ocean theme for August . I edited all these pics in B&W , I like both. Which do you prefer?  (Only have the alternate of the first pic posted)

The next first of the month pics are my of front yard , which has turned mostly into a forest  I captured some Garden Angels who keep  constant vigilant watch over things in my garden.

Next, as I am still a bit behind on the Months of the Year scrap book , Here are the July TP Album  page & tag, which fits inside the page pocket .

 July 4th theme for page .

Ice Cream theme for Tag.

I almost always take my camera where ever I go . The next pics are of a trip to Lowe's Food Store for super double couponing. I past this old church often , finally snapped a pic of it while riding by.

Full Moon.

I always migrate to the flowers , they had large blooms of Lillies  , I only wish I could have captured the fragrant , it was delicious !

Beautiful Hydrangea Blooms.

These were colorful and caught my eye.

The last pic is part of my granddaughter's toy collection ,Hamtaro's house .Some of the Ham-Hams are waving from the window to us.

 It reminded of this wonderful promise from the Bible .
"In my Father's house are many mansions: If it were not so I would have told you.I (Jesus) go to prepare a place for you".John 14:2
