A Fairy in the Sunshine


The other morning, Delta and I were out on her daily walkabout when a beautiful yellow leaf  shining in the sun caught my eye.  Suspended by a spider’s single thread, the leaf hung perfectly still and I was so captivated by its glorious color I wanted to take a picture.  You should’ve seen me trying to contain all 34 pounds of puppy pulling on the leash and trying to take a steady shot with my phone in the other hand.

fairy shotWhen I downloaded the image, I received a surprise.  Oh sure, the leaf might be overexposed but I do believe I see a fairy sitting atop that bright yellow leaf.  What do you think?  Do you see a fairy?

“And as the seasons come and go, here’s something you might like to know. There are fairies everywhere: under bushes, in the air, playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day. So listen, touch, and look around — in the air and on the ground. And if you watch all nature’s things, you might just see a fairy’s wing.” ~Author Unknown



“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”  Ephesians 3:20 NIV Bible

Happy Thanksgiving 2012

 Happy Thanksgiving


My house is beginning to have holiday smells, savory ones coming from the kitchen as onions and celery cook in preparation for making our Thanksgiving dressing.  I know the debate wages between the merits of stuffing vs dressing but in our house, the family dressing recipe reigns.

This year will be our first Thanksgiving with our children and their spouses.  We plan to overindulge in laughter and togetherness (and maybe a little food! )

Since my guests will be here through the weekend, I will take time to enjoy their visit and will be back posting next week.

If you’re looking for some background music while you cook, my friend, Sarah has a wonderful playlist put together of thanks giving music you can listen to here

Happy Thanksgiving!


“Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.” 
Psalm 95:2  NIV Bible
