Living Intentionally

“There is an occasion for everything, and a time for every activity under Heaven.”  Ecclesiastes 3:1

Hi friends,

The beauty of seasons is that they remind us that everything on this earth is temporary.   I can experience JOY or miss opportunities during these perilous times. I can trust God in every season.  While circumstances can change drastically in our lives, I’m thankful our Savior remains steadfast and faithful. May we persevere through these difficult times, knowing God has a plan in these times too.  Bob and I are following the “stay home” rule except for grocery shopping, pharmacy, and an occasional ride. Take a little tour from our last drive…..


I captured this beautiful dogwood that always reminds me of the cross and the story of the dogwood.  I heard this story first from my Mother’s lips.

The cherry blossoms are some of the most beautiful.


There was a whole bank of wisteria that caught my attention.  These look more blue than purple.  This was taken from the car so I could only imagine their beautiful fragrance…I would love to have some of these cascading from my cinderella arbor in my garden. 



Redbuds are showing up everywhere.


The pink dogwood against the green background…so very lovely to me.


We drove to Hickory Nut Gap, just a few miles from our home. All of nature’s elements make for a very beautiful sight.

This is only one of the many barns at Hickory Nut Gap.  My love of horses makes visits there so joyful.




This reminds me of the “Road Less Traveled”.  I remember reading that book many years ago and the first sentence says “Life is difficult”.  The good news is that there will be loved ones traveling with us and especially Our Heavenly Father.

Overcoming adversity generally advances our awareness and understanding of the world. Sometimes we must embrace the unknown regardless of how difficult and fearful it may seem.

This photo is not clear but it is difficult to know  for sure … there are so many blooms it can be hypnotic…a very beautiful cherry tree filled with endless blooms.


The sky on this day just took my breath away.




I have been trying to capture this forever.  It is near my home. Driving East on I-40 I can see it pointing to the Heavens.  The only way to get a photo is from the car or get out in the middle of the interstate.  I yelled to Bob :”I got it, I got it!” You know I have a wonderful husband who puts up with all of this.

In the middle of writing this post, I told Bob I have to stop and make my afternoon cup of coffee and get my little treat.  Before I could get up, Bob had made and delivered my coffee and sweet treat to my chair.  As I said before….a whole has to do with the people on this Journey with us.

Lord, help me to trust you in every season and every circumstance.  I want to Honor You as I live out each day with intention.
