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 Weekend Snapshots: Full

An unhurried phone call from Ryan and Sarah...
full of stories and laughs and catching up.

A birthday party for these two sweeties, 
granddaughter Maddie and grandson Owen. 
(I love how their personalities shine through in this photo!) 

A dinner shared after the party...

followed by another birthday party,
this one for Ron/Dad/Papa. 

Here, Owen presents Papa with his dessert of choice, 
a homemade cinnamon roll.
We all applauded Papa's choice...and Kristin's baking.

Worship with our church fellowship
(inspired teaching, voices blending in the beautiful hymns of the faith, blessed fellowship),

an unexpected gift from a sweet friend 
(and it's not even my birthday),

and a delightful evening shared with our friends Chris and Kim.

A weekend like this can fill up your tank!  


  1. The best kind of weekend!

    I am exhausted from the last week...and off to a accessories show in NYC today.

    We must meet soon, friend!


  2. And a filled tank is a very good thing on many levels.

    Ron has a sharp haircut. Wish that I could get John to do the same.

    I think Owen is yelling because Maddie has all the cupcakes except one. =D Hope that they have great years. Eight and six...can't beat that!

  3. Cheryl, Ron, Kati, and Bekah! We had such a great time yesterday... and are still talking about that yummy dinner!

    It's amazing how much talking can be accomplished when two like-minded families get together for a few hours! Our tanks are definitely filled with good fuel! Thanks so much for having us over!

    Kim :-)

  4. Hi Cheryl,
    A great weekend of memories being made and photographed!
    Enjoyed reading our previous post, It has been a fast summer. I am amazed at how well you organize your homeschool, and home!
    I have been away from blogging enjoying our Maddie, and planning the remodeling, as well as canning, it has been a very busy time around the farm.
    Thanks for sharing.
