His Eye Is On The Sparrow

  I woke up this morning 
with this song in my heart.
It is one of my all time favorites 
and brings me such an overwhelming 
feeling of peace and of being truly loved.
If He watches over the little sparrow
how, oh, how, much more does 
He watch over us.
Why should I feel discouraged
 why should the shadows come;
Why should my heart be lonely
 and long for heaven and home;
When Jesus is my portion 
my constant friend is He;
His eye is on the sparrow 
and I know He watches me. 
I sing because I'm happy; 
I sing because I'm free.
His eye is on the sparrow 
and I know He watches me. 
I Hope that I can put this in your heart, today.
And that your day can be blessed 
with the riches that are in this 
amazing song.
Whenever I am tempted 
whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing
 when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, 
from care He sets me free.
 His eye is on the sparrow, 
and I know He watches me.
Also if you play guitar . . .
I posted all the chords and lyrics 
for this on my other blog . . .
Strumming & Singing 
Have A Lovely Day

Roses & Picket Fences

My roses are blooming
 I'm so excited!
 This will be our third summer here 
in our little country home.
Each year I've planted more roses.
I just think that picket fences
and roses go together,
like America and apple pie :)

I've counted 18 rose plants . . .
I think it is time to stop planting 
and start enjoying.
I cannot wait until they grow to a place
where our fences are covered. 
That will probably be a couple more years from now. 
The ones that I planted in 2014,
our first year here,
are looking gorgeous this spring.
One of my favorite things,
is to pick my own bouquets.
I think it stems from my childhood 
in Indiana and all the wild flowers 
I picked for my Momma :)
Some of you have asked to see my paintings.
This is one that I did of my Sweet Steve,
at the helm of our sailboat, Wazapan. 
 Here's wishing you all a lovely week.
I'm joining the party 
Share Your Cup
and linking up with 
Jo, Jann & Carol.
Join the fun here: 
Keep Smiling!

Home Again

Good Morning Sweet Blogging Sisters.
We have been away since last Saturday morning,
so I have a lot of catching up to do. 
That is after we rest from the trip . . .
unpack and wash our trip clothes,
and mow and pull the weeds that grew while we were away :)
We had a lovely trip visiting,
our daughter and granddaughters
and stopping at my brother and sweet sister-in-law's home 
for a short over night visit on our way back home.
 Following are a few photos from our trip.
 I had to take this . . .
doesn't it take you back in time.
We stopped at Multnomah Falls
on our trip home . . .
Teresa Kasner is a volunteer there
and I was hoping that it might be her day
to work the information booth,
so that I could meet her. 
It was not :(
Visit her lovely blog at:     
I have more photos, but they are 
pictures of family . . .
so for their privacy I don't post family photos . . .
except my two sweet fellows,
Steve & Butchy.
(sorry the pictures are so grainy)

Have a lovely weekend.

Keep Smiling!

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)
