Spiritual Sunday



"Sometimes I'm sad. I know not why.
My heart is sore and distressed;
It seems the burdens of this world
Have settled on my heart.
And yet I know.....I know that God
Who doeth all things right
Will lead me thus to understand
To walk by FAITH......not SIGHT
And though I may not see the way
He's planned for me to go......
That way seems dark to me just now
But oh, I'm sure He knows!
Today He guides my feeble step
Tomorrow's in His right.....
He has asked me to never fear....
But walk by FAITH ...... not SIGHT.
Some day the mists will roll away,
The sun will shine again.
I'll see the beauty in the flowers
I'll hear the bird's refrain.
And then I'll know my Father's hand
Has led the way to light
Because I placed my hands in His
And walked by FAITH...... not SIGHT.
~~~~Ruth A. Morgan"









**For we walk by Faith, not by sight....

Show & Tell Friday!

Show and Tell


Hey......... a first for me......... it's Show & Tell Friday over on Kelli's blog, and I am participating today!
My grandparents were married on April 18, 1921.
This is their Wedding Book........ it is so pretty and precious....... just a few simple paper pages, yet it means so much........
Not only do I think it is just beautiful, but it has the details of their wedding......Grandma filled it in with pencil........
She recorded her attendants, her guests, her gifts, their "first callers", and their honeymoon.
The really REMARKABLE coincidence about it is that it says Gramma and Grampa went "by machine" to San Jose, Stockton, Sacramento and Modesto..... And, here I am years later..... living in Stockton!
This is one of my treasured possessions, and I wanted to share with you!












Happy Friday!
please click on the Show & Tell picture above

Pink Saturday



Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday!!
Today I want to share one of my most favorite pink
treasures....
I found this frame at a Home Goods store last year,
it was appropriately named "Boardwalk"
I knew when I saw it I had just the perfect picture for it......
My parents married in 1946........
a short time after they met........
She was a waitress
at a small diner across the street from
the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk........
just 18 years old........
and he was a driver for Greyhound bus lines........
They raised 6 children......
and were married for 54 years......
she passed away in 2000.....
he passed just 3 short months later.....
I have no doubt they are together now.....
playing on the beach somewhere.......
and having a wonderful time....
