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.

Sunday Snapshots: Different

I grabbed this shot as we all hurried to the van to drive to our home church fellowship. It was a milestone day for Bekah as she served as our church pianist today, accompanying the group as we sang hymns together. She has played at church before, but not with others singing along, which is quite different. 

Also different was our Sunday afternoon. Kristin and Brian and the children were on their "summer" vacation, but we asked guests to join us instead. What a delightful time we had as we exchanged testimonies of God's goodness in our lives!

Different can be good. It gives us opportunity to grow.


  1. She looks so pretty and sophisticated in her Sunday go to meeting clothes! How wonderful that she could serve by being the small thing! I'd have enjoyed being a fly on the wall.

    Different can be good; otherwise, one just goes around and round.

  2. Oh she looks lovely! What a cute dress and she accessorized it so well! She's growing up Mom!

    I'm certain she did well! Tell her Sarah started taking lessons again recently! She is so excited about it!

    Love you all!

  3. Bekah is beautiful in her pretty outfit. I know you were so proud of her playing in church. My 6 year old granddaughter has started taking lessons and it is a joy to see her learning. Your table is beautiful. What a blessing those times of fellowship are!
    Blessings to you, Sharon D.

  4. Your pretty daughter looks so poised and grown up in her lovely outfit! What a wonderful accomplishment to be able to play the piano for church!

  5. Wonderful photo--she looks so composed and confident! I remember having to play at church --- what seemed easy at home seemed a bit more challenging with an audience of singers!

  6. I love Bekah's outfit! How wonderful for her to play the piano at church! All of us are musical wanna-be's around here. We all love it, but none of us can play anything.

  7. What a cute outfit on your talented Bekah! The purse and scarf are perfect. Sounds like you all had a blessed day!

  8. Bekah's sweetness shines out of her face. Such a cute outfit, too.
    As someone who used to play piano for church, and started about the same time as Bekah, I say, "good for you." It's not easy, that's for sure. But doing it often brings ease and confidence.

  9. She looks like such a young lady in her outfit! I love the bright red accent pieces!
