No Place like Home


'Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, 
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home!
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there,
Which, seek through the world, is ne'er met with elsewhere.' 
                                                                               - John Howard Payne

We have just been away for almost four weeks, and while holidays are great, and catching up with friends is great, there is no place like home.


                        Home to...
...clear blue skies...

  ...clouds and trees...

                ...my beautiful pet sheepies...this is Harry... 

 ...and this is Harry again...isn't he cheeky?

              ...my sister's pet sheep...named Obadiah...

                ...my brother's pet sheep...named Hosea...

                                                                     ...another of my pet sheepies...named Jumbo...

                                                                                       ...back to autumn leaves....

                                                                  ...and pumpkins ready to pick and eat.




'God gave all men all earth to love,
But since our hearts are small,
Ordained for each one spot should prove,
Beloved over all.'
                                        -Rudyard Kipling

  1. The sheep, you mean? I guess they are big compared to mini goats. :) But they are just as loveable. :)

When you comment:

1. My day will be brighter, my face smiling, and my heart blessed.

2. I’m likely to immediately go and explore your blog (if you have one) to find out more of your amazingness, and return the blessing.

3. I will then attempt to craft a response to you that will somehow fail to convey how much I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness. I’m grateful for every word of encouragement you give, and don’t be afraid to share some constructive criticism also; there’s always more to learn. In short: thank-you! :)
