The Times They Are a Changin'

Around our yard...




In the Garden...


(Picking our pumpkins a few weeks ago.)

Change is happening around our neighborhood too...







In this ever-changing world, I am so thankful for my constants



(This very may well be the only picture we have had of just the 2 of us in the last few years and probably will be the only one for the next few years to come. At least it proves that we did go out on a date for our Anniversary!)




And most of all, I am thankful for a God who is the only True Constant in my life!

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17

Blessings to you today from this
Southern Girl at Heart,

What wonderful pictures, Vanessa!
My favorite of all is the one of your husband with his arms wrapped around and guiding your son. That one is a whole lesson in relationship in one shot, isn't it?

I just love it.

And of course, Miss Peekaboo around the tree steals the heart!

And what a wonderful message, too. So true. I'm so grateful for that which is constant in my life, too.

I love the changing seasons, especially in spring and autumn.

But I also love the constants in my life.

This is a great reminder of both.
