This is a place for those who long to slow the pace, slow long enough to celebrate the beauty in small things oft left unnoticed in the hustle. Really, its for me to slow. Slow and see. Maybe you need a place to slow, too?

I’m a girl from the heartland that finds herself living on an old farm, a farm that weathered the dark of our civil war and still stands. This blog is to commemorate & create, to quiet the heart, to marvel at the good and true things.

Sparkling sugar and holy scriptures.

Tiny dew drenched petals of a newly bloomed zinnia.

The speckles on a white pumpkin, imperfect, but still a beauty.

Here you will find reflections on the deeper things as well as reminiscences of the best way to prepare pie pastry.

All these simple things, like all things, pointing to the most true and good thing of all.

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:15-17 (ESV)
