The end of one day, I will be sharing more beach pics  in the future.

For now, I will leave you with this  wonderful Bible Truth from  John 3:16 .
" For God gave his  one and  only  son,  that whoever believes in him shall not perish , but have eternal life ."

This  is expressed beautifully in "Tenth Avenue North's " song & video " Love is Here"

A Birthday & Museum Visit

Hi Blogging Friends,
I hope your life is good today ,if not, I pray that things get better soon. Here at" My Enchanted Home", as you know it is mostly about photo journaling my life .So I tend to be long on pics and short on commentary. But  I  always  want you know how much I value and appreciate all who visit here.

 Today I have pics from my daughter, Angel's  35th birthday.  She is a vegetarian and very much into organic  square foot gardening , so thus the party theme of gardening .

For her day , we joined  Angel & family for an afternoon at the new wing of the NC Science Musuem, It is " The Nature Research Center"

This pic is from their website.

Outside view of the Earth building structure that is part of the Nature Research Center. I think this is very cool.

Pics from the main building of Science Museum.

Whale from NC Coast.

View from walkway between the two Science Museum Buildings.

Pics from inside Nature Center 

This looks like colorful abstract art., but it's a model of an e-colic germ.

I love the contrast of light& dark here. I looked up while waiting on the Nature Center Porch ,this is a pic of porch skylight while it was raining.

The cool waterfall gutter at the museum.

After the museum visit, we went to eat at Chipotle, Angel's favorite restaurant. It started raining before we left the museum.

Cool Pic of Jasmine twirling her umbrella in the rain.

I will leave you with this encouraging word  from the Bible:
"I will leave them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the rain to come down in his season; and there shall be showers of blessings."Ezekiel 34:26

& This Thomas Kinkade framed print "Dorothy  Discovers Oz" . My pic is not good , It has so many reflection & glares .

So, I added this , so you can actually see it .

Next I  have my late post of my First of the Month pics . I took them at the first of May,  but have procrastinated in posting  :(  I opted for an inside pic ,of my monthly table decor & an outside pic of the seasonal changes in my front yard . The idea is to take  a pic of the same thing at the first of each month , to show how thing are different or maybe  staying the same.

I will leave you with this Wish

that you have a Joyful Week!

And this Bible verse ...The Joy of the  Lord is your strength . Nehemiah 8:10
