Blue Skies Shining On Me

Today was a picture perfect day. The morning sky was so blue and the gentle breeze made for a lovely morning on the back porch.
Now, by no means was it quiet and peaceful. Law, Xavier and Em were flailing about and wailing like a couple of banshees. And believe me their bickering made it hard to get much Bible reading done...sigh. Things finally calmed down, when their Papa and Mama, took them, Maddy and Ian to the Metro-Park for an afternoon of swimming. Celebrate good times...come on. It was wonderful to enjoy some quiet.
Our sweet Elek fell fast asleep. So, that meant that Kell and I got to spend time talking and chillaxin'. I watched as the hummingbird flitted around for it's afternoon fix of our Honeysuckle Vine. And the Bees, Butterflies and Rabbits are daily visitors here. So, even though I am stuck living in the city...this ol' country girl gets to enjoy reminders of both home and glorious memories of childhood.
As always God is faithful. This past week He brought me through a scary trip to the ER, where thankfully it was nothing serious. Just a bad case of Vertigo. Which kept me homebound because I couldn't drive, since I felt like I had a constant case of motion sickness.
Good night all. The Banana Bread that I whipped up is fresh out of the oven and calling my name. God is good!

about that ER trip and so

lovely day there with His
sights and sounds all around--
and the flowers are beautiful.

When I logged on to your blog the first thing I thought was "oh, what pretty flowers!" I'm so sorry to hear about the vertigo...I know how that feels-more than terrible! I hope you are over it by now.

God is good.
Home is also the most wonderful place to be in sickness and in health.

I never feel that so intensely as after I've been to the hospital.
Oh, to be allowed to enjoy the thousand little things which separate one's home from any place else on earth.
I so understand my mother who is putting in all her efforts to be able to continue living in the home she has built.
To be kept homebound may be a blessing.
Hope you may have a soon recovery though.
That's another thing;
We don't really appreciate health, until we've realized, it is a treasure in clay pots.

Glad your okay. When I come over and visit with you I always feel a sense of peace. Not necessarily me but you, you always seems to do things that sound heavenly. I sit here at my computer when I should take a books and read. I haven't been able to recognize the important priorities.
