To Everything There Is A Season

Outdoor Wednesday At A Southern Daydreamer

The family is one of nature's masterpieces.

~George Santayana

I love Mary Engelbreit's art. Her pictures depict such happy, whimsical scenes that remind you to be thankful for the little things in life that are often overlooked. Things that are the true treasures and make life worth while. So often we get caught up in the hustle bustle of life and are so busy in making a living that we forget to live. While I am not a fan of cold weather I am a fan of fall. I love the beautiful jewel tone leaves, the rustle of leave beneath your feet, sweet smell of hot apple cider and the sweet taste of caramel apples...........oh, and you can't forget the pumpkins!! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin scones, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin rolls, and just pumpkins in general! Every day, every season we are surrounded by little miracles that make life worthwhile if we'll only slow down long enough to catch a glimpse of them. Hope you are enjoying your fall and anticipating the wonderful holidays that are just around the corner. Take a minute to step outside today and while you are there, stop to smell the pumpkins!

It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS. Lamentations 3: 22-23


  1. What a precious little doll under that tree! Oh, how cute!

    You touched on a scripture that is the title of one of my very favorite hymns: "Great Is Thy Faithfulness." And it is great, and so is HE!

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday...

  2. Miss Caroline looks lovely under that tree. Thanks for the reminder about everyday miracles. I hope you are having a wonderful Outdoor Wednesday.

  3. Hello Elizabeth, I enjoyed your profile very much. Your fall photo is so precious. A beautiful little girl in the fall leaves, I too love fall and the holidays that come with it. Caroline is so sweet and pretty too.

    Happy ODW.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  4. That verse is so reassuring to me...everyday. The precious little one under the tree, is cuter than words can say! I bet you are a wonderful grandma!
