Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
This is a super hard one for me this week .... so I need to bury it in my heart:


  1. Got me curious about When Calls the Heart. Might have to try it out this week.

    1. It's such an excellent show! If you have Netflix, they just added season one.

  2. You visited my blog today and I wanted to come by and meet you. We are having the same type of weather here. Lots of humidity and rain/thunder storms for the last two weeks and I can't wait to see the sun! I honestly don't know how the garden will fare, or how the local farmers' corn will do if we don't get some sun soon (live in Northeast Ohio).

    You sound like such a lovely person. Looking forward to visiting again, Sherry.

    1. We're neighbors then! I'm in SE Michigan! Looks like rain most of the week ahead for us. Thank you for the comment! :)
