"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

bee satisfied

Your statutes are wonderful; 
therefore I obey them.  
The unfolding of your words gives light; 
it gives understanding to the simple.  
I open my mouth and pant, 
longing for your commands.  
Psalm 119:129-131

How sweet are your words to my taste, 
sweeter than honey to my mouth!  
I gain understanding from your precepts therefore I hate every wrong path.  
Psalm 119:103-104

Taste and see that the Lord is good; 
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.  
Fear the Lord, you his saints, 
for those who fear him, lack nothing.  
Psalm 34:8-9

* I took 13 pictures trying to get that first shot.  It tickles me to death! :)

Blessings,  Debbie

  9. hi debbie, i came here by way of kim at my field of dreams. love the bee pictures......cool that you got the bee in flight! that is one of my favorite scriptures. did you ever sing the praise song based on it? i see that you and kim have much in common.....homeschooling, chickens, cats, and taking great pictures. it is nice to meet you. i will be back!

  10. On my walk this morning one of my songs, "I will praise him1" came on and I was so thrilled I could have cried right there on the sidewalk. We certainly are blessed!

  14. Debbie! Due to the Blogger issues most of us were experiencing I couldn't leave comments! I love the bee photo, you definitely should frame it! I also needed to read the Scripture. I also think that today, if I had children, I would definitely want to home school them. Have a wonderful Memorial Day. xo,

  15. You caught such a perfect shot. I love taking photos of bees. Poor things get quite fed up as I pursue them around the flowers with my lens, but they are such interesting little creatures.

  16. Terrific photos! Wonderful scriptures!
    Have a marvelous weekend, and thank you for your prayers. Isaac made a miraculous recovery!

  17. that photo is amazing! thanks for stopping by and encouraging me. =)
