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.

Fall Fun-and-Flame

A beautiful cool, crisp (and dry!) autumn evening was the perfect backdrop for our local homeschool group's annual fall hayride and bonfire.

Ron pulled the haywagon filled with guests back to the bonfire site in the woods multiple times. (And we noticed that some of the young riders were on all of the trips! ~grin~)

Hot dogs and marshmallows were roasted over the fire. (Isn't that the only way to eat a hot dog?)

Brian served as Keeper-of-the-Flame.

Moms and dads had campfire fun. Fun? They look like they're having fun although I'll bet its been many years since some of those dads have sung "I'm a Little Teapot"!


  1. What fun we had, thanks for sharing your home.
    We can be silly at times. Thanks for the memories.
