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.

Gathering the Moments of July











We have had so many sweet moments in July. We are so blessed!!

And yet life is not all sweetness, is it? There are struggles and sickness and sadness. 

But then, if we are Jesus followers, we are not "of this world." And so we continue to be sojourners...passing through this life, making the most of the moments, being grateful for His gifts, holding those gifts loosely, serving others, and looking toward that perfect day!

  4. Pictures are worth thousands of words! A wonderful month for you--family reunions and birthdays and coffee and blueberry stuff --- Chopin and I love the red cushion on your wicker chair! (I have the same chair with a dull green cushion.) Happy August!

  6. Beautiful post, Cheryl. Your words sum it up so well. Your photos are superb! What a wonderful family with treasured moments. Personally, I do hate to see July leave. August has brought mornings that have a tinge of fall in the air.
