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.

Note Card Party: Autumn Beauty


I only briefly considered my theme for Vee's seventh note card party.  It is September, after all, and to me that means fall is here!  (My regular readers will know that I wait all summer long for autumn.  ~smile~)

The easy part was settling on a theme.  The hard part was looking through four blogging years of fall photos and choosing only four.  (Or was that the fun part?)   But I made my selections, and here are four photos from my blog that I would send to say Autumn Blessings to you!




"Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."

~ George Eliot









While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
Genesis 8:22





Do you have a blog?
Then you can join this month's party

  1. You made some wonderful choices and I like that you put them together in a collage, too. The quotes are perfect. I'll copy one in my journal tonight! Happy Fall!

  2. Look at the jewel tones on those mums! Don't they provide a wave of color? Beautiful. When I "heard" that you were going with pumpkins and mums, I decided to go in a slightly different direction. I'm so glad as I have no photos this beautiful! Wonderful quotes as well!
