"May morning"

May Morning,
I rise early to greet your cool mist
Broken soon by the sun's face
Lighting your grace

May morning
Your bright hue is refreshing
Waltzing in after gentle spring showers
Having kissed your flowers

May morning
How quickly you pass from us
Slipping quietly through summer's soft portal
Grieving both angel and

Lol! I love those jokes - they are the simple ones that kids like and maybe I can remember.
And the poem is neat.
Thanks for sharing.

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need, and thank him for what he has done.
Philippians 4:6

Just follow God unquestioningly.
Because you love Him so, for if you trust His judgment there is nothing you need to know.

"Friendship Garden," by Connie Rowsell.

I found this written by Ms. Rowsell about this painting. She said that upon hearing her dear friend, Charlotte, was very ill, she set about to paint something that would capture their friendship. She tried and tried to find the right landscape but didn't feel good about any of her ideas. That was when she came across a painting she had started quite a while before, when her friend first learned she might be sick. Ms. Rowsell had never finished the work but soon picked it up and completed it.

Ms. Rowsell said the windows represent two lives. Those two lives have separate views yet they come together to appreciate the same beauty in life. Not long after Ms. Rowsell finished her painting, Charlotte died. But she is forever remembered by her artistic friend and by this lovely painting, "Friendship Garden."

Posting this late due to the upload problem.


Happy Mother's Day!!

"How can I thank you, Mother,
For your tender, loving care,
For your warm, embracing arms,
And your softly whispered prayers?

How can I ever thank you
For your faith and guiding hand,
For your gentle, loving heart
That always understands?

How can I thank you, Mother,
For the courage you instill,
For words of hope that lead me on
To a grander dream fulfilled?

How can I ever thank you
For the blessings you impart,
For all the tenderness of love
That overflows your heart?"

~'Thanks,' by Joy Belle Burgess

This image brings back memories of a bygone era. When I was a child, we were taught that nothing was to be wasted or taken for granted. We saved string, yarn, buttons, fabric scraps, leftovers, ham bones, empty jars, and even coffee grounds (which we used to fertilize the plants). And it wasn't just our family. Lots of families saved things to be reused and we also shared things with each other. A cup of sugar, a stick of butter, or a couple eggs, were often carried to neighbors next door. The sight of a mason jar full of thread spools was not uncommon then and it still serves as a reminder that every small thing has a purpose....even you and me.

I still save craft things - mom used to save anything that could be used for crafts for Indian Guides or Brownies/Girl Scouts. When Dean was in Cub Scouts she sent me a huge box of “stuff” for craft projects since I was a Den Mother. Lol!

My Mom was also a great saver of everything. Nothing in my house went to waste. Mom moved with my grandparents to a farm in May 1929 when she was just 16. The stock market crashed in September and they made do by being self sufficient on their farm. It was a decade of challenges for everyone and those years were engraved with lessons of make-do, do without, and work hard to keep food on the table. Fortunately, they did not lose their farm and my Mom continued her high school and their horse and small cart got them to church and the store . They had a car, but gas was expensive so it was easier to keep a horse as transportation. That lifestyle helped my Mom to raise a big family. Literally nothing went to waste. Today, I try my best to not be wasteful and it is easier , I think, because I was raised that way.
