As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

An Autumn Nature Walk

Well, some of us walked...

...and some of us ran...

...but we all found some autumn treasures...

...and enjoyed the wonder of God's creation on a perfectly lovely day.

After our walk/run,
we sketched in our nature journals...

...made sun catchers with our colorful leaves...

...and crafted these dear little yarn pumpkins to decorate our Thanksgiving tables.

*** Instructions for these darling pumpkins can be found here.
At make and takes, they are apples; we simply changed the color of the yarn to make ours pumpkins.


  1. Cheryl, these pictures are precious. I particularly love the one of the children running! And that sweet yarn pumpkin! That is one of the cutest things I have seen in a long time. I love the overwhelming sense of "family" and "togetherness" that always comes through in your postings. So glad you are savoring this wondrous time of year ... Autumn.

  2. Ah, a beautiful time. Must second the first comment's mention of your sense of family and togetherness. Thank you for sharing your rich moments with us.
