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.

Thanksgiving 2020

We were blessed to gather our four households to celebrate Thanksgiving! 

Here's a quick peek before we turn our calendars over to December . . .

Behold Our God


Yesterday, we made pies and sweet potato casserole and made place cards, all while singing along with our Thanksgiving playlist!
There have certainly been some hard things about this year, and your year may have been much harder than mine! But when I behold Him -- when I consider His greatness and His goodness -- I cannot help but praise Him!

🎶 Who has given counsel to the Lord?
🎶 Who can question any of his words?
🎶 Who can teach, the one who knows all things?
🎶 Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?

However you're celebrating today, I hope that you are able to pause and behold our God and praise Him

Happy Thanksgiving to you, my friends!

Loving and Linking . . .

I thought I'd share a few "loves" from this past week.

(On Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, I spent time with precious friends which I loved, but of course there are no links for that. Oh, but I wish I could link you up with some heart-filling friend time! It is good for the soul.)

November is not time to put away autumn decor at my house. Rather, it is time to get out a few turkeys! This Primitive Tom is one of my favorites. I made him years ago with instructions I found ~here~. 

I enjoyed this Autumn Chopped Salad this week. It had been a while since I had made it, but I love the flavor of the chopped pears and dried cranberries and blue cheese. Yum. 

Also "yum" was this frittata recipe by the Pioneer Woman. Mine had potato, onion, mushrooms, and kale, but you could add any veggies or meats that you like. It's an easy, but flavorful weeknight supper. 

These thoughts on the election by author Lynn Austin may be the best thing I have read on this topic! She published the article the day before the election, but the ideas continue to be relevant. 

A dear friend posted this beautiful song on her Facebook. Oh, what a message! Take a few minutes this weekend to listen and ponder I Asked the Lord That I Might Grow .

Starting a New Row!

Do you remember this post about a year ago? 

Twelve Blessings!!

Well, we're starting a new row! Oh joy! 

Yes, there's a new baby girl coming in March to Ryan and Sarah's family! The gift of parenthood is an amazing privilege and a sobering responsibility, and it is a gift from the Lord. We are so grateful for this new little gift and can't wait to meet her!

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, 
The fruit of the womb is a reward. 
Psalm 127:3
