Hi Friends,

My sweet granddaughter Eliana making a face as she gets used to the water temp in pool.

 I love this rainbow which  comes into the family room each sunny afternoon via prism hanging in the window.

 The rainbow reminds me of"The throne of Jesus in Heaven"  depicted in these wonderful Bible Verses recorded by John the apostle while he was captive on the Isle of Patmos  at  around AD 96.

"At once I was in the Spirit, and there  before me  was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the one (Jesus)who sat there
had the appearance  of jasper & carnelian. A rainbow , resembling an emerald, encircled the throne. " Revelation 4:2&3

  5. Dearest Myrna,
    What a precious example you are of God's precious love. I am always encouraged and lifted up by your thoughtful comments.
    Your little grandbaby girl, Eliana, is beautiful. She has shiny dark hair just like her Grammy!
    I love the rainbow shining on your family portraits. God is smiling on you and yours and reminding you that He always keeps His promises.
    Blessings to you, my sister in the Lord Jesus, our Messiah, savior and King!

  11. What a great post! I love the light cast through the prism. I haven't seen a prism in a long while ;-)

  12. I love the back school composition. The lighting is perfect and you have set the scene up really well.


  13. Myrna, very neat idea and decorations, the map covered cans are cool. I love your flowers, especially the zinnia! Your granddaughter is a real cutie. Pretty capture of your prism rainbow. Lovely photos, thanks for sharing. Have a great week!

  14. I love the close ups of the pencils.

  15. I love the prism picture. It reminds me of Pollyanna and her glad game. Sweet grandbaby!

  16. Wonderful photos. Thanks so much for visting.

  17. Hi Myrna, I just love all the back to school pictures, so colorful. Love your new banner too. Your grand is such a cutie in the water having fun. To answer your question on where the violin was hiding, it was stashed on the top shelf of a closet, behind all my Mom's fabric stash. I don't know why she would have put it there, but it must have been there for years. Have a great day!

  18. Your little granddaughter is adorable. The last picture of the rainbow on the wall was so pretty! As always I love looking at all of your pictures.

  19. I lovee your post =D Your tag pages are really cool! =D I love your back to school decorations, they make going back to school better =D I love how you put the flowers in the birdbath =D

  20. Great pics. Love the glads in the bird bath! Classic.

  21. I love the zinnia and the mushroom, those are such nice shots! When the timing is right, we have gladiolas in our yard. I enjoyed seeing them in your bird bath, the colors are so pretty in the reflections...

  22. As always, I'm happy to be in your company. There are so much beauty and joy around you. favorite picture of today must be the prism rainbows in your family room. Poor John, Alone in captivity on an island. Though he wasn't alone. He spent time with the Holy God, and got messages to cherish, warm and comfort Christians of all time. Have a wonderful week.

  23. Nice blog post. The pictures are really nice. You make each new season feel more special with your careful attention to detail and your fun decorating. Eliana looked cute in that pic in the pool. And I love how you put the flowers outside. Enjoyed it all, and the rainbow and the verse that went so well with it. Love you. :)

  24. Such wonderful photos! I love how your photos capture moments and tell stories!

  25. Rainbow quote from Revelations is eye opening but I am a woman who believes we are walking through rainbows everyday we just can't see the colors.
