Room with a View

Standard

The little grandbabies out in California recently went on a family camp-out. The pictures and stories are just too cute. I’m sure there will be more pages to come … if I can just get mama to send me some of the journaling now …

The left hand page of a two page spread:

(don’t you just love those darling, frilly bottoms?! she loves them! I remember having bottoms like that when I was little and thinking how pretty they looked.)

I added strings from BY THE SEA by Minicake Designs

My Journaling:
There is a Room-with-a-View that can be experienced by everyone. It’s just beyond your backyard, in the midst of God’s creation, filled with the sounds of the world settling in for the night and smells that draw us together like moths to a flame.
I hope you will always find time in your life to visit the Room-with-a-View, even if only for a few hours. It will heal a wounded soul, reassure a discouraged heart, and give rest to the weary body.
See you there?

TFL!
