Sunday Thoughts ~ August 11, 2019

“This is a place where grandmothers hold babies on their laps under the stars and whisper in their ears that the lights in the sky are holes in the floor of heaven.”~ Rick Bragg

“He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.” ~ Psalm 147:4

     Good Sunday morning, dear friends.  Sundays, I believe, are special days for all of us.  A day set aside for worship, family, friends, rest, and relaxation.

     On Sunday, many say their prayers in a church, others say them in a garden or in the peace of their home. Where ever the place may be, it is important to count our blessings and be grateful for them.  Also, to be grateful for our successes and mistakes, both have lessons. 

“Nothing happens unless first, we dream.” ~ Carl Sandburg

     A lovely Sunday is also a perfect time for a little dreaming.  Perhaps, planning in our minds something we would like to do with our families or friends, memories we would like to make, or simply planning the upcoming week. It can also be a time to bring to life treasured memories we have tucked away in our hearts, special dreams which became reality.  Moments of time spent in a beautiful place with love, laughter, family, or friends.  However, one may enjoy spending their day, it should bring joy and above all,  peace.
     I don’t know about you, but I feel it would be wonderful to spend the day on this grand old swing.  Peacefully dreaming, or in the company of a great book, and being sweetly hugged by the love which stitched the quilt.oldfarmhouse: “Summer in New Brunswick is a very pleasant season, and the front porch is great for entertaining company and for just sitting. ”

“The greatest thing about dreams is they don’t expire.” ~ Casi McLean

Dear friends, I hope you have enjoyed my ‘Sunday Thoughts.”  Know how much I appreciate your visit. 

 Wishes to you and yours for a beautiful day.


May wildflowers speak to you wherever you roam and fill your heart with joy and beauty.


“Keep your faith in beautiful things;  in the sun when it is hidden, in the Spring when it is gone.” ~ Roy R.Gibson

Happy Sunday dear friend! Your Rick Bragg quote is perfect for your Sunday thoughts. He grew up about thirty miles from where I live. I love all of his books and have heard him speak. He is the real deal. Sunday’s are special for our family. It always includes a time of worship meeting with our church family at church. Lunch follows with our small family as we continue to hold dear the tradition my beloved Mother began. The afternoons are somewhat lazy and the perfect time to dream, because after all they don’t expire. Lovely quotes, thoughts, and images.… Read more »

Sandra, another lovely post. I love the photo of the lunch table set with the open doors looking out into that beautiful view. How could a person — a family gathered — not take joy in Sunday lunch sitting in that sunny spot. It pairs perfectly with the Ricky Bragg quotation above.

Wishing you a beautiful Sunday. I’m going to keep your thoughts near to hand as this new day unfolds.
