Home is...........

I'm back home, my parents brought me back yesterday.  I awoke this morning to a cheerful bird singing outside my bedroom window ,welcoming me back home.  Isn't it funny how you can miss the sights and sounds of home, even when you have only been gone for a week?  Over the last few weeks I have gone through a time of much worry and distress.  I am happy to say that I have surrendered that to the Lord Jesus and now have my peace back.  Truly, I had peace all along, but I couldn't seem to feel it. Oh ye of little faith, that was me.

A fun thrift mug.

I think a little get away did me a world of good. My mama said it would :)  , and mamas usually know, don't they?   I brought these state plates home from my parents.  Dad had them in his sale items. Regina got them up for me, and the ones hanging before are going to the charity shop.

I have added a few new houseplants as well.

I pray your week is going well my friends.  Blessings  May your home be blessed, may it be a place of peace and tranquility for you.

So glad you had a nice visit with your parents and came home refreshed. Being welcomed home by a sweet little birdie is the cherry on top, right?

Grace & Peace.
