Recipes, memories and random thoughts from my kitchen

One of the blessings of a daily walk is that one almost always sees something beautiful to lift the spirits. I call these little glimpses of beauty “spirit-lifters”. The primroses in the photo are what was blooming in the wildflower garden last week. But on our daily walk this noon, I saw a couple of other lovely things. First, it was the brown-eyed susans that “just happened” to be blooming around a neighbor’s roadside pot of red geraniums. Another neighbor has planted blue morning glories to twine around a mailbox post. There are orange tiger lilies in clumps along our walking route, too. And last, but not least was a clump of daisies trailing gracefully down over the grassy bank of a little roadside stream.
God is so good! I love seeing these glimpses of the beauty He has created. What a wonderful reminder of His power and greatness and His attention to every detail. Without question, we can trust Him with the details of our lives!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
