Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

I thought today I'd post a "few" of my all time favorite photos. The problem is they're all my favorites!! I'm going to have to post a "few" more!! Enjoy!!


  1. Hi! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I see you're fairly new to writing a blog. It's a nice social outlet for me (also a homeschool mom). I love to see all the wonderful people that stop by to say hello.

    You're children are absolutely adorable. My husband and I both 'awwed' at the babies big blue eyes and I love the name Hattie, such a sweet little girl name and wonderful name to grow into a woman too!

  2. April-
    Wow! My first comment! I knew I liked you! Thanks a lot. This is lots of fun. I'll be checking in to see what you've added to your blog as well. Can't wait to see what antics the kids and animals are up to next!! By the way, Hattie Rose is named after both of her paternal great grandmothers, Hattie and Rose. Hattie is supposed to mean, "mistress of the home". I just love her name too!
