It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...a beautiful

Since the last few post have been contributors to brain strain....here is just a little something fun.
MelanieJoy thought it would be fun to post some pictures of our everyday life...so when we think of each other we can picture that person in their normal surroundings. I don't think she has done her post yet so maybe this will motivate her. :) So here is a look at my life through the lens of my camera.....hold on to your seat.........I wouldn't want you to fall off when you fall asleep. ;)


Just so you don't think I am kidding about living
in a camp ground....the above is a picture of my surroundings. Julia has enjoyed making a fort in the playground with two other kids her age.
Now the picture on the left is the view of the mountain side from our camper...you can barely see the house on the mountain side. And of course I had to include a picture of the trees changing color.




You will have to excuse the pictures...they have a mind of their own this morning.
They were sorted but somehow they have gotten all flipped around
Yesterday was my brothers music night...which I have been going to because one day I hope to show up with my instrument. So we had a night out. Now hold on to your seat here comes the exciting news. We have a new Walmart....Yes, and it is now open 24/7! It just opened this past week so we had to go and check it out. So the picture on the right is a picture of my brother playing his fiddle...there are about 16 people who show up to play each Monday night. The pictures underneath are the pictures that led up to the music time. I thought I would take pictures of us going down main street. It is really a sweet street with lots of little shops.

Now of course I had to take a picture of our visit to wally world.
It was beautiful...if you could call Walmart beautiful.


I will say the view from Walmart is beautiful.











It kept trying to remember to bring my camera when I picked up Julia from school...I finally remembered. So this is the view right outside our camp ground....Julias school is about a half mile down the road. What a incredible peaceful view from her school.
That is it for now....sorry for the mess with the pictures.

What a great idea. I always think of doing something similar. It kind of paints a better picture of who we are. I mean, our environment definitely affects who we are, don't you think? Wow, beautiful pictures. Your home is gorgeous. I don't recall who Julia is...Your daughter? Granddaughter? How old? Just curious! :)
Back int he day, I wanted to live in a tent in a campground, just for a summer and, boy oh boy, did people freak out! lol Never did it. I caved.

What a beautiful place you're at. I remember that even though I was surrounded by beauty my heart still yearned to be at "home" in my "home". The Lord was faithful. He gives us the desires of our hearts and I believe He fulfills them too. It wasn't that I didn't appreciate where I was, I knew it was only temporary.

It's looking beautiful there!! I love it when the leaves start to change colors and I agree with that view from Walmart! WoW! =)

I got to thinking about you today and the circumstances you are in. Then, I believe the Lord gave me something that may encourage you. I hope so. How can you help those who are facing economic hardships and uncertainty if you haven't walked a mile in their shoes. You'll be able to sincerely and genuinely understand, encourage and bring comfort in ways you couldn't possibly relate to them if you haven't experienced it yourself.

For example, folks will be losing their homes and no where to go. All they may have to live in is their car. See what I mean?

Thanks for your comment on my blog -- I usually avoid O also, but I often will just put it on to see what the topic is. I love Dr. Oz -- he's so "normal" and encouraging. His books are great too -- very simple & informative. D

The view is beautiful.......... I think that living close to the mountains is like living closer to God...... Is that strange or what..I see HIM high and lifted up seated on a mountain...... You are close to God and the view is breathtaking... Thanks for taking us along......
