As Busy As A Butterfly

I have been as busy as the butterflies in my garden.

I am a stay at home kind of girl. I do not go many places
this has been a week of so many celebrations
 of birthdays and of the heart.

I went to dinner with my son and his sweet family
to celebrate his birthday.
He was born many years after his sisters.
My last baby!
Now he is Daddy to three and going to be four little babies of his own.

Yesterday afternoon I filled a picnic basket with barbecue and all the trimmings to take to the park
along with candles and a bottle of wine .

Under a dark, cool and misty night sky
was just perfect for candlelight
we watched fireflies dance and shooting stars flash
 the darkened stage of The Luma Human Light Show.

It was magical !

I want to keep the feeling I felt on Easter morning in my heart
I watched the sunrise on Easter morning from the swing in my garden.
I still had my nightgown on
I don't think Jesus noticed what I was wearing.

 He saw only what was in my heart.

Oh How I Love Jesus

Because He first Loved Me

May you be blessed tonight.


I am linking to Outdoor Wednesday.
