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 nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—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.

Sunday Snapshots: An Ice Cream Sunday

When I began sharing "Sunday Snapshot" posts, the idea was to select one picture that would encapsulate our Sunday...sort of a representative of our together time each week.  But do you know how difficult it is to choose just ONE?  Ack! 

I think I'll just rename this feature "Sunday SnapshotS" and thereby end the quandary of either narrowing down my plethora of photos to a measly one or renaming my post every single week.  There. 

Caveat:  Now that I've removed my self-imposed restrictions, I may overload my readers with sweet grandchildren pictures.  Don't say you weren't warned.

  1. I am personally of the opinion that there is no such thing as too many grandchild photos!! So have fun. I for one continue to live vicariously through your beautiful grandma experiences until the Lord decides to bless me with my own... :)

    Hugs, Debbie

  3. Hi Cheryl, These photos bring back such wonderful memories for me, we have not made homemade ice cream in ages. I especially enjoyed the photo of the children sitting around eating ice cream together. and of the tire swing, I want one of those.~smile~
    It is so nice to visit and catch up, I have been off line for about two weeks, and enjoyed reading some of your other posts as well.
    Enjoy the summer time with your family.
