035This is about as local as it gets; the home of my three golden girls.014

I now have three new pullets and they have their own house and play pen but I haven’t taken any recent photos of them.

Thanks for stopping by, please stop back soon.  God bless.




Looking out at the back of my back yard on a misty morning.


Coquina is our favorite Beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida.  We also love to visit the Atlantic on the East Coast of Florida.  On Coquina there isn’t many large shells but the beauty of the water makes up for the lack of shells.


Thank you for stopping by and God bless.


     It has been quite a while since I have posted anything.  I have a good excuse but I won’t bore you with details.  But yesterday or the day before time is confusing with all that is going on.  I know you know about the hurricane that just skirted the state of Florida.  Yes, I was busy preparing for that.  Well anyway, one day this past week the post was “Tree.”  Right away I thought of my papaya tree.  I have a lot of trees in my yard and I love all of them but this year my papaya tree is loaded with fruit; the first year for so many offerings.  I just had to share it with you.


     My fall garden is looking pretty good but I’ll save those photos for another day.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.


The Photo Challenge this week wanted details.  This mushroom  was growing in my yard a while back and I was blessed to get a photo of it.  I have no idea what kind it is but I love the detail and how it looks like a mound of meringue.

Thanks for stopping by and happy posting to you.  God bless.

Another Street

I took this photo while in Texas recently and thought it would be good for “Street” entry.  I know it is my second one but I wanted to share.

Why did the rooster cross the street?CSC_0245


It began with an idea and a dream; start a family, build a house and barn and turn them in to a home.  The babies came one by one and what was once boards and nails became a home filled with laughter and yes, some tears.  Then the children grew up.  They left for college or distance jobs. Their life journeys no longer needed the small frame house and old barn.  It was forgotten and left to end its journey in neglect and disrepair.





The last few weeks our country has seen some unhappy times.  But just as we share our joys and successes we share our heartbreak and sorrows.  Yes, we’ve had different opinions on some things that happened here but thank God we are still free to voice those opinions.  The citizens, both men and women, who gave their lives so we can live free would not be proud of how we have abused what they paid the ultimate price for us to enjoy.  Yes my heart grieves for those Officers in Dallas and I pray for those families.  I pray for all our officers and first responders everywhere.  I invite you to pray with me.  And while we are at it  look up; our flag still waves and we can choose how and where we worship. This is still the best country in the world to live in. Let’s honor our fallen heroes by treating each other with respect no matter what color our skin.  Though we may not agree with their opinions we should respect their rights to voice those opinions but absolutely without violence.  If we all stand together and do what 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us to do God will hear our cries and heal our land.  Don’t say “Well that’s Old Testament stuff.”  God never changes He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.  What He promised in the Old Testament He will do today.  No politician can straighten out this country.  What we need is for Christians to stand up for God’s principles and virtues. If we do God will stand beside us and the United States will once again be the great country it once was.  Look up!  GOD BLESS AMERICA!
