The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Autumnal Gatherings. . .

Since returning  On Crooked Creek from vacation,
our Social Calendar has been filled with . . .
Autumnal Gatherings!!!

Pat enjoying Annual Trout Fishing Trip @
Bennett Spring State Park!!!

Oh, what total JOY
to help celebrate my BEST FRIEND (ever) from High School
Mother's 100th Birthday!!!

The Birthday Girl!

What a blessing this "precious lady" has been in my life!!!

The Birthday Girl and My Best Friend!!!
Pat, Edna and Rosann

To be invited to this joyous celebration was such a privilege. . .
then to be included in the day's photographs was a precious memory in my life!

Rosann and her beautiful daughter, Amber!
"Mr. Ed" was so~o~o good to take a few snapshots for us!
I want to forever hold this day close to my heart!

Pat with Amber and Rosann.
I know you've heard it said ~
that when you have a true friendship,
even though a great deal of time may have passed. . .
when you see each other again,
it's as if no time at all has passed at all!
That's "exactly" the way it is with Rosann and I!!!

Pat and Rosann sharing ideas for Edna's breakfast!!!
Thank you, dear friend, Rosann for allowing "Mr. Ed" and I
to be a part of Edna's celebration!!!

Having lived On Crooked Creek for ten years now,
I have been blessed with another group of friends. . .
my JOY Circle Group!

Every year for our October meeting,
we are hosted at the home of the Pam (seated)
for an Outdoor Cook~Out!

Each member brings a side dish.
Hot dogs are cooked over an open fire. . .
followed by S'mores!
Then we gather around the campfire, light sparklers and sing!!!

Each of these precious ladies are a true JOY in my life!!!
The friendship, love and support they continually give one another is an outward example of "Making God's Love Real"!!!

Another group of ladies
have included me in their monthly "ladies day out"!!!
I'm thrilled to be a part of this amazing group of "new friends".
Currently, we are in the process
of planning a Progressive Christmas Brunch!!!

So~o~o. . .
for now, I'll enjoy each event as it happens.
Autumnal Gatherings. . .
On Crooked Creek!!!

Until next time. . .
