Unexpected Color

Beside a busy street in the middle of a small Oregon Coastal town I recently spied this beautiful hydrangea.  I wonder how many people pass by and never notice it there.  There is beauty all around us – bits of color where we least expect it.

Falling Behind and Catching Up Again

Oh, dear me!  It’s Fall and I need to get busy and catch up with myself, my Autumn decorating and with you, with my dear friends.  I really didn’t mean to drop out of sight.  Honestly, I didn’t. It’s been nearly a month since I last posted anything here.  I told you I was about to take my sweet, little vintage trailer on her maiden voyage – a journey that would be my first time to tow a trailer far from home by myself.  She and I made that trip and we had such fun.  I’m editing photos to share soon.  We had a great time away together and I learned a lot of things I never dreamed I would need to know.  See, there she is – surrounded by dear friends for a few days of fun together.
Daffodil At Camp Life took off at a fast pace after we got home from our camping trip.  There were days away from home for business, for fun and for time with treasured friends.  Days to deal with home life and days to catch up with myself in the middle of a hectic schedule.  Then a sweet friend from college days came to visit.  My guest room was made ready for her arrival.
GuestroomNot long after she arrived we headed to the Oregon Coast for time away together.
Oregon CoastlineOur visit was sweet, but short.  Then it was over and we both returned to every day life at home.  It’s been a busy few days since then.  There have been places to go and people to see and work to be done.  But I’m back - back with things to tell you and photos to share.  Yes, I’ve fallen behind – but I’m working hard to catch up!  Like the story of the little train that said, ‘I think I can, I know I can, I knew I could’, I’ll make it.  Yes, I will.  I know I will!

What Would You Do. . .

If you were camping and it rained when you had planned to roast marshmallows over the campfire outside?  Well, you could improvise.  You could put your thinking cap on and come up with a new plan!
Roasting MarshamallowsYou could very carefully roast them inside – over the burner of the stove in your travel trailer!  You would have to be careful not to catch them on fire or your smoke alarm would go off and the campers nearby would come running!
Roasting Marshmallows InsideYou could turn them and roast them - and then you would eat them!  And they would be good!  So good you might eat a few too many.

(There’s a new post over at Daffodil’s blog.  If you haven’t seen it, click on the ‘Daffodil – My Vintage Trailer’ tab at the top of this page.  It will take you right over to her blog.  We’re making progress!  I’d love to share it with you.)

I Will Trust When I Cannot See

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Lean not on your own understanding
In all your ways acknowledge Him
And He will direct your path.
Proverbs 3:5-6

When I do not understand God’s leading
When I do not know the reason why
He should choose the path that lies before me
Still to Him in faith I can reply:

I will trust when I cannot see
When I’m faced with adversity
And believe Your will is always best for me
I will trust when I cannot see
