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 Saturday Snapshots: Father's Day

To accommodate schedules, our Father's Day celebration was on Saturday evening.  

We began with a Man's Meal
roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, and some favorite sides.

(I didn't get pictures of the food, but we did take some pictures of the nautical theme decorations before everyone arrived.  Because we're obsessive like that.)

The weather was just too gorgeous on Saturday evening, 
so after dinner we went outside for father photos... 

Brian with his boys

Ron with his girls

My dad with his daughters

...and stayed outside for coffee and dessert...

...a little cuddling...

...and some tokens of love. 


  1. Cheryl you guys do such an awesome job with decorating. I llove the theme! It looks like another memorable time spent together!

  2. The desserts look yummy! And the "Dad" pictures are great. Do I see jackets????? Must be cooler than here :)

  3. Sweet, sweet, sweetness... It's wonderful to document all the father/child relationships. What a lovely day!

  4. Wonderful! We gave Tim a book and a few shirts, but his real gift is a skydiving adventure with Emily!
