a few pretties around our place

Leon and I absolutely adore our little cottage. It is long and not so wide. But the rooms are a nice size so even though it is only a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchenette/living area, it feels spacious (minus the complete lack of storage). It also has a veranda stretching across the length of the cottage. We eat our dinners outside on the veranda and also have some comfortable chairs for relaxing. I'd love to give a little picture tour sometime. I should do it soon as we will be adding on a small nursery for the baby.

I've recently begun printing free printables found online to pop into this frame. It's a nice way to change things up a bit. This is my most recent finding. I love the watercolor look of the flowers.

We have some stunning spray rose plants in the garden. A little cutting placed in this cute vase is a pop of cheer in the small, dark corner of my kitchen area.

This is another new plant. Thanks, Mom, for the birthday money to get a few pretties at the nursery! I'm hoping this plant will thrive in its little corner.

God has been so good to us lately despite life's difficulties. We have each other and are exceptionally happy together in our marriage. Our needs (food and raiment, I Timothy 6:8) are abundantly provided for. We enjoy stunning weather here and abundant sunshine. 

I read this passage last week and thought it timely.

Psalm 103:2-5

Bless The Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

|| Who forgiveth all thine iniquities ||
|| Who healeth all thy diseases ||
|| Who redeemeth thy life from destruction ||
|| Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies ||
|| Who satisfies thy mouth with good things so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's ||

How good is our God!

Life can throw some difficulties our way, can it not? This passage is most helpful for me today, thank you. I enjoyed seeing your place! Praying for you!

Sweet little place, Rebecca :)
I'd LOVE to see your tour when you get around to it. How are the girls? Did you get the package? Enjoy the beautiful weather!
