He Really Is So Sweet To Me...

The Farmer's Market!
Look how excited Jer is to be there
to be getting his picture taken
so that he can be on my blog!
As you know, from past posts,
Big Bear Jer does some things,
that he may consider "Girlie",
but he goes along because-
He really is so sweet to me...
This is a local market that
started last year.
I didn't hear about it until the
end of last summer-

Too late...

So this summer-
We are on!
There are beautiful flowers and plants.
(Have you ever seen such a giant Dalia? )

There is also beef, pork, fish and poultry.
Oh, and fresh, made-to-order omelets!
Everything, of course, is locally grown.

Along with a few tables of hand-made items.
Add Image
It was a busy and bustling crowd.
Such Fun!!!
Oh, did I mention the homemade jams?
I love Tart Cherry Anything!

I also picked up some flowers,
which I absolutely can Never resist-
So that I could dress up my girl...
It was a wonderful way to
spend an hour on a
Beautiful Summer Morning!

I'm taking a vote-
How many of you think Jer will be there
again next Saturday?

Come Follow

Jesus said, "Come follow me."
Matthew 4:19

This is what Frances from,
said to me today:

"The Master said, "Come follow" ... That was all. Earth's joys grew dim. My soul went after Him. I rose and followed .... that was all. Will you not follow if you hear His call?"

I've had this quote in one of my journals for a long time, Joyce. But I can't remember who said it. I love what it is expressing. The simplicity: "rise and follow". The result: "Earth's joys grew dim."

A similar thought is expressed by Samuel Rutherford: "Since He looked upon me, my heart is not mine own; He hath run away to heaven wit
h it."

How beautify worded is this?
Thank you Frances,
and I hope that you don't mind
that I added this to my post.

That Sister Thing...

It is almost spooky!

My sister,
and I so often do, wear, think, say, act
exactly the same way but,
we are hundreds of miles away from each other.
I posted a picture of the cute little flag banner
that she made me.
That same day, on her post,
she had a picture of her flag banner at her house.

If we had just made them
I would understand the coincidence,
but we had both had them for a couple of years.

One of hundreds of stories...
Oh, that Sister Connection-
Nothing else compares!

Tell me your sister stories...
I want to hear all about them!
(Those wonderful Sister-Friend stories count too!)

Be Our Guest...

Last weekend, which was Mother's Day weekend,
we had some very special and important guests!
The first guest, who stayed the whole weekend,
was Kiaya.
She is Junie's best friend,
whose owner just happens to also be
a very good friend of ours. :)
Kiaha and Junie start playing the moment
that Kaiah enters our home,
and they don't stop until she leaves again.
(Except for an occaional doggy nap)
They are two crazy girls together,
but they both take guard duty very seriously!

On Mother's Day I received some
beautiful cards and gifts.

And, the extra-special bonus of Breakfast In Bed!!!
My husband and youngest prepared this for me.

My two older boys brought me plants.
Love Them!

My boys know me well-

(Because I love Words, Words, Words)
Chocolate Mints

I thought that the mints were wrapped
in such pretty, pretty paper.

Last, but certainly not least,
we had my oldest son's Girlfriend, her Mom,
Grandparents, Brother and his Lovely Girlfriend
over for Mother's Day dinner.
We enjoyed getting to know them better.
Such a nice family!

My Biggest Blogger regret-
I didn't get a picture of the whole gang.
I feel like I had the perfect Mother's Day.
Thank you family!!!

This is completely off the subject but-
I am going to do the "Friday Pretties" play along again this Friday.
It was so much fun the first time I did it
that I want to do it again.
If you want to play along, just leave me a comment.
check out My Tattered Rose post for Friday.
She played along, and her post is Very Pretty!!!
