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: A Day for Dads

It was a fine day, this day for honoring dads. 

From the gorgeous weather 
to the smell of the grill and the outdoor picnic. 

From kids running and playing
to adults talking and laughing. 
(Some adults even jumped on the trampoline!)

From German chocolate cake and apple pie 
to just being together

Three dads, three generations.

My dad and his two daughters.
Ron and his three girls.
My son-in-law Brian with his five children.

And ending the day with a father-son chat from across the miles.

A fine day.


  1. What cute decorations. Looks like you celebrated well. Did many of you happen to wear black or was that part of the plan? Looks good in the pics!

  2. What a great day! We feasted on Mexican food, enjoyed time with Tim's sister and our brother in law, took the kids to the beach! All rare treats!

    Loved your decorations! You know how to celebrate!


  3. Looks like a wonderful day. Great photos! Glad you enjoyed!

  4. Wonderful! Looks like a Dad-Honoring time was had by all and, from the grins on the dads' faces, looks as if they had a good day, too.

  5. What a great generational celebration of dads! Looks like a wonderful day...

  6. Looks like you had a wonderful day.

  7. Yes, Cheryl, that does indeed sound like a fine day! Love the family photos. You are so cute!

  8. Tell Bekah that the decorations are great! The weather was great for grilling. Love to see how many generations of Dads were represented.

  9. Grilling and Father's Day just seem to go together don't they? The best days I can think of are those spent with family, looks like you had a great one.(love that you were able to have three generations represented)

  10. I took exactly ZERO pictures. Sigh. Why do I forget that? Great pictures of a beautiful family, Cheryl.

  11. Happy Father's Day (late)! BTW, your hair is looking awesome:)
