Spiritual Sundays

As I was pondering what to share with you for Spiritual Sundays today, I was sitting at the desk facing the clock which hangs on the opposite wall. This clock has been in our home since our children were small.
I have often thought about what that clock says and how we can apply it to our every day lives.
It has a very simple yet profound message on it.

"The closer we come to God, the closer we come to each other."

A man and a woman are holding hands and this is the caption on the clock.Initially, I think it was meant for a married couple but I like to think it would work in all our relationships! The closer we come to God, the closer we come to each other.....Think about it.

When Jesus came to earth, He set the example for us.

Pink Saturday

Good morning Pinkies and "Happy Pink Saturday" to you all! Today, I have a few pinks for you to see.

The first is an angel that my son Joel gave me for Christmas one year. She has lace on her sleeves and her frock, spanish moss for hair, and pink crepe paper wings. There is some pink in her frock too. She holds her wreath by a pink ribbon. She's a cutie!
Then there is this white ceramic kitty that a girlfriend made me when Joel was born. As you can see, Miss Kitty has pink ears, a pink nose, and a very pink tongue. She has been in our home for over thirty years. Yesterday, I made an old-fashioned Gingerbread cake with my grandmother's Vinegar Sauce to pour over it. Very tasty! As much as I enjoy whipped cream with gingerbread, I find the cake is more delicious served with either the Vinegar Sauce or homemade pink strawberry-applesauce. It tastes wonderful with both! We enjoyed it with some candlelight and pink lemonade in my pink goblets. These dishes would normally fall into the red category, but they are really a pink floral pattern. I got the set just before Eatons went out of business. Most of them came from my mother as gifts at Christmastime. Won't you join us for some pink lemonade and Gingerbread? Just pour on some warm Vinegar sauce from my Rose Chintz pitcher or spoon on some applesauce from my little jam jar. Then, after your visit with me, please make your way over to Beverly's at for more pink treats today. Have a great weekend everyone!
