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.

My mother loves hats, and wears them well.  She has worn hats for special occasions all her life, including last Sunday. 

Me?  I look awful in hats.  A few years ago, I had a cute winter hat that matched my coat.  Someone took my picture wearing my "cute" hat...and I have never worn a hat since.  It was that bad.  (Don't ask to see the picture.  It no longer exists.) 

Hey wait a that I think about it, Mom coerced me into wearing a hat at a tea party that she hosted (she actually coerced all the guests) and then took pictures.  (Note to self:  Don't ever be caught in such a weak moment.  Ever again.)

BUT, if I were invited to the royal wedding, and if I were going to wear a hat to compliment my gorgeous designer dress, it would certainly NOT be one of these.  

Bekah said the blue one looked like an open beak. 
Kristin thought it resembled a canoe.

Can anyone say "Gertrude McFuzz"?

But, really now, doesn't this one on Princess Beatrice
take.  the.  cake?
