I”m joining with Susanne at Living To Tell The Story as we count our weekly blessings.

I’m enjoying . . .

1. Letters of a Woman Homesteader – by Elinore Pruitt Stewart

A delightful read! Download a Kindle edition for free on Amazon. I don’t have a Kindle (yet) but I use the free Windows Kindle app.

2. Lady slippers blooming shy in the woods. You have to hunt to find these floral treasures.

3. A beautiful outdoor wedding of a very dear family friend – we’ve known her since she was in diapers 🙂

A sweet hug for Roger at the end of the ceremony.

4. Long walk along Pamure beach

gathering shells

5.  This has been a week with highs and lows ~  the birth of a much-longed for baby and a sweet wedding in our church family  but also deep grieving because of sudden deaths.  Roger had 3 funerals in 5 days.

I’m so thankful for praying friends. We feel carried by them.

I’m so glad you dropped in for a FFF visit.

And I’m thankful for each one of you – your friendships, your cheery hellos and sweet comments!

May your weekend overflow with blessing!

    The pastor and his wife often carry all the burdens and joys of their congregation along with the families. It's a privilege to do both although sometimes it's hard. What beautiful flowers the lady's slippers are. They're worth the search.

    Your pictures are just lovely this week. That church steeple! And what a beautiful setting for a wedding. You have had quite the week, haven't you? It's weeks like that that make us thankful for the constant. He's always by our side, isn't He?

    I'm so sorry for you losses this week but rejoice with you in the joys. May God uplift you as you remember those you loved.Those lady slippers are lovely. A treasure to find for sure.

    Kathie, Letters of a Woman Homesteader is the first book I downloaded on my new kindle! See today's post ; ) The lady slippers are so lovely. We have to go to the mountains to find them and they are rather rare.I don't know if you saw it, but I replied to your comment saying that in August, if we have been smart and kept on successively planting through the early summer, we harvest our beans, cucs, tomatoes, and basil, plant our fall/winter gardens, and go to the beach! Probably not too different from what you do at that time – we just drink more ice water!Joys and sorrows come all bundled together don't they. Praying for you and Roger as you walk through the highs and lows with your congregation.Much love,Beth


  11. Those Lady slippers are so pretty. I love finding surprising treasures like that in the woods. I always LOVE your outdoor pictures. So beautiful, each one.
