Hello my friends, it has been a while ~
There have been storm clouds at the Vintage household. As you may know, my father in law passed on June 4, 2013. We will miss him terribly ~
Aunt Judy passed away on July 18 after a brief battle with cancer.
But ~ we must look upward and seek strength. For after the storm clouds roll away ~
Blue skies emerge ~
and rainbows appear ~
and you just know, the Lord is with you, giving you the strength to take one step at a time, to put one foot in front of the other and to keep going ~
"He is my strength and my Salvation, whom shall I fear?"
nothing and no one ~ for the Lord is with me ~
I still see beauty everywhere ~
I now take the time to stop and really absorb all of the beauty around me ~
For it is everywhere ~
Even my favourite rock ~
My friends, take the time to hug your family, look around you and really enjoy all of nature's wonders, hold each other close ~
Time is precious ~ slow down, relax, and enjoy life ~ We have learned that life is precious and we take the time to enjoy each moment ~ even the smallest of things ~
Do you take time to enjoy life's moments? Please do
I hope you missed me as much as I have missed all of you ~
Mom is doing better these days. It's going to be hard for her for a while, but we stay close.
Soon I will be back to my old antics (yep, yard sales, creating ~ you know). I don't want to miss a second ;-)
Have a wonderful weekend my friends
