~just wish you could have gone~

Saturday mornings are for sleeping in,
 enjoying the morning coffee...

hitting the road

I would have loved to have taken
 a few dear friends with me today.

Especially those who have encouraged me through
 this new journey,

the new found ones ~ the ones whom I've not been able to hug ~
~the one I do hug on Sunday mornings~
~those who are struggling and just need a day out~

~ the dear one who loves to worship on weekends
 at different places of worship~

and those who have been constant
through all kinds of weather.

A beautiful morning,
clouds began appearing quickly
& I found an early winter surprise
and watched the bees,
so busy with their mission.

A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
Proverbs 17:17 KJV

Friends must be constant at all times.
Swallow-friends, that fly to you in summer,
 but are gone in winter; such friends are no great loss. 
 Christ is a friend that loves at all times.

I'm sharing my day out with the others
Scripture and A Snap Shot

Hello friend, You brought God right into perspective. The churches, tablets with the commandments, nature at work and finally....that He will never leave us nor forsake us...Beautiful!! All we have to do is remember it..It seems soooo easy, yet when life goes hard, I for one, in truth, sometimes forget for a moment...God Bless your day. Huzzzz

Good Sunday evening Karen, I have just spent a few minutes enjoying this post as well as trying to catchup on some of your other posts.
I was so blessed by reading them all, I think it is wonderful that your dh cooks breakfast on Sat. my dh likes to cook too, A great recipe for pancakes too. Your home is beautiful and what a great job of photography you do. But your love for God always shines through your writings.
