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.

Horse Event and Garden

Molly and I went to a fun horse event yesterday. It was the Timex Three Event Day, sort of a mini version of the Rolex Three Day Event. Here are a few pics of our favorite riders and or horses.

Joel on Red, second place finisher at the event. He is also Molly's riding instructor.

Beautiful Gypsy Vanner mare.

Mary Beth on Easter, first place finisher at the event.

When I came home, I found that Dan had marked out the area for garden expansion. I am so thrilled with what he's planning! I think it's just about as much as I could handle for next year. Just enough to keep me from being completely overwhelmed!

The kids pulled a few carrots for a snack yesterday.


  1. That will be a nice garden expansion!

  2. Oh, how exciting to see your new garden area being prepped for next year! How big does it measure? Now you can spend days this winter figuring out just what you can plant in it. Fun, fun, fun!
