What ever the age of a wheelbarrow....
it will always hold something for you.
Walking around the yard ...soaking up all the changes in growth.

Nature is such a teacher....always changing...forever evolving.

Lilacs ready to burst open...

First year for the white lilacs to bloom!!!!

Thank You for stopping by this weekend with prayers and encouragment.
David is doing wonderfully. One foot of his ascending colon was successfully removed and 48 hrs. later we were on our way home.
We arrived home Sunday evening and he actualy cut the grass today...amazing.
We are in a holding pattern for a couple weeks....
testing...Drs. conferences...more testing and decision making.
We need more information before locking into treatment and sugeries...
I will be happy to offer specifics as soon as we know them.
For the next couple days we need to regroup and Dave needs to continue healing.
We are both looking forward to just doing "NORMAL" things for a couple weeks....and waiting on the Lord for direction.
Hope your all enjoying this beautiful weather and onset of summer....
Lets get out there and have some fun!!!!!!


  1. Isn't it amazing how fabulous normal and boring can be?

  2. Hi Kathy,
    I have been waiting with bated breath to hear from you with news of Dave, and it is so good to hear that "normal" is working for now..My doc told me that mostly cancer is treated as a chronic disease nowadays, and they just do what they can as they can. It will all work out.
    It certainly is summer here now..HOT!!!
    gonna mail your pictures this week. We have been so busy...
    love ya girl,

  3. Glad that you are back & Dave is doing well!!
    Isn't mowing the lawn ( normal :) a lovely thing?
    At our house, post-cancer, my husband enjoys pushing/walking thru the whole thing ( we have a few acres ) because he can!!
    Here's hoping for more good/normal things!!!

  4. Hi Kathy,
    Your garden scenes are so lovely. I wish that I had those white lilacs blooming in my garden!

    Best of everything to you and Dave. I'll say some prayers for you.


  5. Your flowers are gorgeous, Kathy. I have never seen white lilacs pretty.

    Saying prayers for you and Dave.

  9. Kathy....I have never seen white lilacs before! Sounds like Dave is doing well.....Enjoy this beautiful cool weather we are having right now!~Hugs, Patti

  10. Your flowers are so pretty!! Glad that Dave is doing so well. Still praying for him and hoping that he will get good news from the doctor regarding his treatment. I can't believe that he mowed the grass. Don't let him overdo it. Have a wonderful week. Love & blessings from NC!

  11. Dear Kathy,
    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I just spent the last half hour here, looking at your beautiful pictures and all the lovely things you create. Most importantly, I learned of your husband's health issues. I will certainly add him to my "blogger friends" prayer list. This is the 2nd time today that I have been reminded to get a colonoscopy (I'm 52). It is now moved up on my to -do list. I look forward to stopping by again. God bless you both, a new prayer warrior from Wisconsin.

  12. Wow! your flowers are gorgeous! What lovely colors.
    So glad to hear your hubby is up and about doing the "normal" things around your home.

  13. So happy Dave is starting to fell well again! Hope you enjoy the weather, too!

  14. Kathy - I know it feels good for youboth to be back at home. A place of respite and comfort - your decisions will be easier if made from here. Prayers continue for you both~~~


  15. Gorgeous photos! Don't you just love this time of year? Your photos capture the beauty........nature helps to renew our spirits and gives us hope! Peaceful Blessings, Cathy G

  16. You don't know me....but I am praying for you...Your faith and spirit are being used for good.

  17. I am glad to hear that you are back home and that the doctors have addressed the cancer and are planning the next stage of attack. Now is the time for embracing the joy of life at home and allow the body to do it's own healing. You and Dave will be in my prayers each night. Your white lilacs are beautiful. Do they have the same fragrance as the others?

    Susan and Bentley

  18. Thanks for the update on your husband. Prayers continue. Loved the beautiful garden photos! xxoo

  19. What a beautiful serene yard. Nice to take time to share. Take care of both of you!

  21. Glad you and Dave are home. I like your pretty flowers. Will keep you in my prayers. Now go and enjoy the arrival of long summer days!

  22. Happy thoughts your way, for complete healing!

  23. Gods healings to your David and my prayers too.
    Your Primroses are beautiful. I don't recall seeing that color before. I love them. Now I have to go look for my old wheelborrow and see if I can get it off the rockpile and filler-up with blooms.

  24. Sounds like encouraging news for David! Your floral shots are gorgeous! Have a blessed day.

  25. Mowing the Yard! One tough guy! My thougts were on you this morning, so just dropping by!

  27. Kathy you are so blessed to be surrounded by gods beautiful creations!
    Dave needs to take it easy, he did just have surgury, he shouldn't push himself!
    Tell him to sit and enjoy life....... nothing else matters at this time.

    Prayers to you both,
    Hugz, Dolly

  28. Beautiful photos, Kathy! I always enjoy my visits here. Thanks for sharing.

  29. I'm visiting you for the first time today. I am praying for your family. I am most touched at what you are going through that you took the time to take lovely photos of the flowers growing around your home.
    What a gift to us as readers and a gift to yourself to just be in the moment when things are so difficult.
    Will keep up.

  30. Sweet Kathy! This is such good news about your hubby and will continue to keep you in our prayers.
    The shabby rose bug has bit me and it's all your fault! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

    Normal is good, Isn't it? Especially when normal has not been the norm for either of you for quite a while. Enjoy!
