Come Sit a Spell

You can sit here...

and I will sit here.  We can put our feet up or scoot the footstools out of the way and just gently rock in the beauty of this spring day.  Would you like some Sweet Tea or do you prefer coffee?  Perhaps ice water with lemon would be more to your liking.  Just let me know what you need and I can get it for you. 

I have so many things to share with you, but I still have to wait just a bit longer.  I want to make sure all the loose ends are tied up before I say too much.  I can say this...my news is bittersweet.  There are some parts of it that make my heart very heavy, but then there are some parts of it that will make things so much better for our family.  When I am at liberty to do so, I will share more.  Until then...let's enjoy the beauty of this day.

grace and peace,
julie

P.S.  These pictures were taken yesterday at a friend's house during a Bible study.  It was so beautiful out on her porch that we held the Bible study out there.  She has a beautiful home and I love the way she has decorated it.  My favorite area may very well be her porch.  She has made it such an inviting place!  I was thankful to get to spend some time with her yesterday and enjoy the beauty of the day sipping some lemon water out of her special crystal glasses!

What a lovely porch and a lovely visit, but now you've got me concerned about your news, I will be keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers that all works out as it was meant to be:)

I am on my way over! I would like an ice tea (no sugar) with a lemon. Oh what a sweet visit it would be!

I will be praying for your "news".
blessings,
ash
