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: Conversation, Hearts, and Other Good Things


With all of the ugliness that is out there, it does the heart good to come inside, share uplifting conversation, good food, and time together.

  4. I am a huge fan of chocolate pie! Great job Bekah!

    I love the names on the cups. I agree that with all the hardship and pain in the world it is a joy to gather with our loved ones and wrap warmth and joy and love around them.

  7. I'm grinning over the cup labels...Q T Pie...Q...ute!

    Yes, I did find some good things. I am using the "nevertheless" principle. It goes like this: it has snowed for three days; nevertheless, the hot chocolate tastes fine.

  15. Love the names on your cups. And yes, the chocolate pie looks good. The heart reminds me of the years we all sewed oversized puffy Christmas tree ornaments and the heart pattern looks just like yours. I still have a few. I should get the heart out for valentine's.
