Sun Sea and Sand


It seems to me like this summer is flying by. I can’t believe August is already here. Soon kids across the country will be preparing to go back to school and the lazy, hazy days of summer will be a fond memory we use to keep ourselves warm. I hope you have had, or soon […]

Word Art: Positive Thinking

positive thinking

Positive thinking is on my to do list everyday. The older I get the more I believe our thought life determines our actions, words and ultimately the quality of our relationships and life. I believe our thoughts are powerful. Staying positive isn’t always easy, people and circumstances in our life are not always at their best and that is […]

Pray Love Forgive

This month I have been reading a lot about choosing a word for the year ahead that defines your goals or perhaps a new outlook you’d like to have for the coming year. Last week for the spin cycle I chose the word self-care but the I more read over these three little words the more […]



Rebecca is again spoiling us with Word Art this coming year. This week’s quote from Salvador Dali might be an encouragement to all us who have made New Year’s Resolutions and are finding they are already falling short of our goals.

I’m not ready for the cold temperatures and the poor driving conditions that winter brings. When our kids were […]

Psalm 37:24

Psalm 37:24

Psalm 37:24 is such a lovely reminder of God’s unfailing faithfulness to us. Yes we will face various difficulties in our lives and yes we will stumble in our lives but the Lord assures us He will not let us fall. He will uphold us. Thank you Rebecca for this beautiful Word Art.

Yesterday was a beautiful autumn day. The temperature was mild and it was dry outside. I love to walk and I took the opportunity to do so. I headed for the river and then came home along the boardwalk by the lake. It was so peaceful down there. The summer vacationers are long gone, and […]



In just a few days autumn will arrive. Did you have a good summer? Are you ready to don warm sweaters, socks and long pants? I love autumn, but am always relucant to say good bye to the warmth of summer. Walking through the forest with leaves crunching under foot also makes me yearn for […]



What a great reminder for those crazy, hectic moments in our lives. You know those moments when everything is coming at us all at once? That’s when it’s easy to forget to take a moment to breathe. Breathe deeply and regroup. It’s amazing what a good breath can do!   Thanks Rebecca Dost Photography!
