Home Sweet Home

Seven months ago we moved back to our home town.  It has been so fun being back home again and living in the country!


It has been busy getting settled in, unpacking, painting, a little remodeling in the kitchen, planting lots of flowers, trying to get a garden established, etc, and enjoying every minute of it. 
It has also been so nice having family and friends come and visit our little country home.  

It was fun this spring to see what was under the snow in our yard, when you buy a place in the winter there is always the wonder of what does the property look like.  Have been pleasantly surprised, had a couple of peonies bushes, some lilies, flowering crab tree, a row of bridal wreath, old fashioned rose bush that has blossomed on and off all summer, and my favorite lilac bushes.

A few pictures around the yard.

We have had lilacs at each place we have lived except our last house, so happy to have them again!

Have had a great summer and enjoying our first fall!

The lights of home ... they bring us
A sense of warmth and peace.
They promise untold loveliness,
Rest, laughter and release.

They are like hands that beckon us,
Like arms that draw us near ...
The lights of home! They whisper words
Of comfort and good cheer.
I am so thankful for the Lord leading us to our little house in the country!
