“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:
I really like this song God Day by Jen Stranbro. I heard it on the Inspired to Action podcast about Jessi Connelly.
I mentioned here that I love houses. Victoria Elizabeth Barnes is a really fun blog by a couple who are restoring their 1890 Victorian house. Victoria has a slight obsession with Craig’s list and has a flair for the beautiful!
I’ve added another book to my summer reading list: A Fine Romance by Susan Branch. It’s all about her trip to England with beautiful hand painted illustrations.
I recently read this fascinating article about creativity and walking. “Many of our famous authors and painters and composers were huge walkers that would go walking for inspiration.”-John Ratey

Have a great weekend! Remember Philippians 4:8. “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Hi Elizabeth! I’m new to your blog and link-up party, but I’m excited to discover some new friends! I liked your post a lot. Especially the photo of the leaves – very lovely! And I also loved the verse from Ephesians. Sometimes I feel like my spirit is dead (tired) – but it’s so wonderful to know that we are never without the Light of the Son!
Thank you so much for linking-up! It’s wonderful to have you here!
We are so blessed to have the Word of God to help us see the Light of the Son!
Do you already have A Fine Romance? It’s a beautiful book! My family is planning a trip to England in the Fall and a friend of mine bought the book for me to read before we leave. I’m about half way through it and I love it! I’m sure you will too! Enjoy!!
How wonderful that your family will be traveling to England! I can’t wait to read about it on your blog!
I picked up A Fine Romance from the library. I was thinking that today would be the perfect day to sit in the garden and start it! The book is so beautiful, isn’t it? I purchase the Susan Branch calendar every year and it hangs in my kitchen. Do you read her blog?
