  • “Oh, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pour them all out, as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.” Dinah Mulock Craik


Practicing the Presence of God

  • He is always near you and with you. Do not leave Him by Himself. You would think it uncivil to leave a friend by himself who was visiting you. Why abandon God and leave Him by Himself? ~Brother Lawrence

Mother Teresa Quote

  • Thoughtfulness is the beginning of great sanctity. If you learn this art of being thoughtful, you will become more and more Christlike, for His heart was meek and always thought of others.

mmm..mmm..mmm!! yummy!

I would love to do that!

I have always wanted to try canning, but since my own mom never did it, I don't have a clue how! I keep having visions of stuff exploding all over the ceiling.(And it's hard enough for me to keep up with a clean and orderly home -- snort! -- without worrying about that!) :D

As I'm sure I've said before, I am especially impressed with your photography. Both the one of the fresh peaches and the one of the canned ones lined up on the counter really stand out as particularly well-composed, at least to this amateur eye! :)

There's always something beautiful and peaceful in the little picture stories you tell. I know anytime I click over here I'll find a gem. Today was no exception!


Canning is such HOT work, isn't it? Those peaches will taste just like sunshine when the first snow flies.

I did my first canning this year. WHeW! Lot's of work but there's something extra special about that accomplishment!

  • Then, without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn't know it must learn and find by experience that a quiet conscience makes one strong. ~Anne Frank
