It’s been a while since I posted pictures of some beautiful faces.  This is my youngest granddaughter Karli.  Those eyes…

This is my son Joseph.  He came out and spent a few days with us to give his dad a hand on a project that needed finishing.

And during the week I got to meet and fall in love with this special little girl named Cherrie.  She is the daughter of a friend of ours.

As you can see, I love hats, and I always have my camera ready to capture that perfect moment!  Took these pictures on a recent trip to my second home the mall.

Looks like we got side tracked in the hat department!

And our new little friend caught on real quick.

After more shopping, a ride on the carousel and some Menchie’s yogurt, we headed home.

But the fun was not over yet!  The next day it was time to play some more. Our neighbor’s daughter came over to hang out.  Isn’t she precious?

Finally, the theme for texture Tuesday is orange.  Got excited when I spotted these pretty orange flowers.

Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
Psalms 139:7-10 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Thank you first of all for your thoughtful comment left on my blog/Orange TT. I went to your blog and wasn't sure which to choose, but I love this one!!! Those beautiful, angelic faces wearing hats has put a huge smile on my face...truly they are delightful...what a fun collage and memorable experience caught on film.

TT is fun...I barely have started it, so much to learn...I can see by your blog that you are very talented and have put effort into creating a place that is lovely to visit.

The very best to you and will see further what you explore with your camera. Smiles: sharon

Praying hard right now!
Psalms 130:5-7 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. Let [us] hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.

Love all those fun hats at the mall. Guess with all boys I'll have to wait for granddaughters too do all that girly stuff! You sure make it look fun! :)

Lynn said...

Been a while since you updated. Hope all's well!
The Lord will always be there to get you through whatever you have to face. Praying!
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Beautiful girls! Your granddaughter's eyes are gorgeous. My mom recalls often the times she and her girlfriends would catch the bus to the shopping district and spend the afternoon trying on hats. You found some awesome ones!

Continuing to lift up prayers!
Isaiah 12:2-5 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
