Buggy

Mennonite neighbors, headed home


Life slows down on our country lane -- sometimes, anyhow.

What a great shot! You always take such great photos. :)

Thank you Stitchy. This one was taken through the windshield of the car. I cropped it a little, and the buggy ended up off-center, which makes it look like I was standing in the ditch.

It's a good thing you don't see the photos I delete. Trust me -- they're not all great! :D

The editing of photos always make me think of what God does with each of us...the picture down here might not be all that great, but when we get to Heaven...we've edited out quiet nicely. :)

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
