Clap Along


In no particular order, some with the good camera, some with the "little" camera, and even an iPhone pic or two.  This is my life, as of late.







What does it mean when it says ...
"This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it?" or "Rejoice! And again, I say, rejoice!"

Clap along and get happy, my new motto!

Entertaining Frey girls.
De-wilkeing 37 years.
Florida Trip #3 ...
Go to girl.
Cousins.
Engaged.
Neice and soon to be nephew.
Hobnobbing.
Sister, daughter, friend.




































Forget your troubles and just get happy
You better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, come on, get happy
Get ready for the Judgment Day

The sun is shining, come on, get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, come on, get happy
We're going to the promised land

We're heading 'cross the river
Wash your sins 'way in the tide
And it's all so nice and peaceful
When you get on the other side

Forget your troubles and just get happy
You better chase all your cares away
Shout Hallelujah, come on, get happy
Get ready for the Judgment Day

Bucket 'O Mess

I'm pushing 60 and that is no time for my bucket list to be in such a mess.

First of all, I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

And thirdly, I'm forever getting' on the band wagon late or falling off of it, constantly. Coming soon: Trends, Kingdom Living, and I know, I know, more Spring Break pics.

Ya know that time when you thought you were in mid-life and then you realize that 45 was more of a mid-way point?  Yeah, so there's that.



Let me tell you what I'm over, and then I'll get into what I still want to do, see, or start.

I'm over half-way.

I'm over trying to change people. Yup, there I said it. Do what you want to do, say what you want on Facebook or to my face,  be who you want to be, or don't.

I'm over the moon in love with my grandchildren.  I still like their parents, but dang if those little guys just don't steal my heart.

So here's my messy bucket list, of course, in no particular order.

Travel in a river boat on the Rhine

Eat at or buy and run a Food Truck

Fix up the Mallard and camp in it

Winter in Florida

Start a non-profit

Renovate the Grey Barn

Africa missions

Entertain angels unaware

Write a book

Shoot a destination wedding(s)

Family vacation at Disney World

Cross country train trip

And I'd still time travel, if the opportunity presented itself.

So there it is, mostly selfish stuff, but me none-the-less, a beautiful mess.

That's The {E} Ticket

So much to say...
     So many pictures to upload ...

After being gone for 15 years, the Mr. and I returned to DisneyWorld.

I'll be back later with tons of photos, and words about kingdoms, memories, shoes, legacy, the happiest place on earth, family, and infinity.


But first, the 1st installment blog post photos brought to you by Buzz Lightyear, and the "E" ticket!

Blue Like Grass

I started out this morning speaking life to myself ...and it grew into a blogpost.

Verse(s) of the day ... thanks melissa.



Blog post of the day ... thanks jen

Lyrics of the day ... thanks fannie j crosby

Jesus, keep me near the cross,
There a precious fountain—
Free to all, a healing stream—
Flows from Calv’ry’s mountain.

In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.

Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and Mercy found me;
There the bright and morning star
Sheds its beams around me.

Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day,
With its shadows o’er me.

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand,
Just beyond the river.

Hymn(s) of the day ... thanks church sisters



Since we're not seeing any green grass 'round these parts, we're hitting' the road for Spring Break '14.3 ... made a mix tape (playlist) and it's filled with bluegrass, hence the blogpost title.

As promised here's our Sping Break '14 updates...  thanks to the mr., our kids & grandkids, sisters, mom & dad, and palm village cast of characters.




























March madness is over.
April Fool's day passed with a big FAIL on my part. 
I've got Florida for the win, in my brackets and in the circle of life, I'll have it with a dose of generations and a side of Disney. 

See ya on down the road.
And THIS will be the stopmotion/slideshow song of the road trip for Spring Break 14.3.
Not up for discussion.
