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

The Bell Tolls. . .

The bell tolls soon
       for the coming of a New Year!

A more streamlined look is in store
On Crooked Creek as we embrace our Traditional roots!

Since retiring in June 2012,
I've purged every cabinet, closet, drawer and shelf.

Our local Thrift Shop and Goodwill have been the
beneficiary of most of my editing attempts.

By eliminating the excess decor styles,
I have found a greater sense of calm in our home.

Keeping the heirlooms from our families hand ~ me ~ downs
keeps the memories alive and brings us tranquil comfort.

A sense of peace flows over my being
when I gaze upon similar Traditional decor
that was embedded upon me during my youth.

For me,
it is as if there is no longer any pretense.

Free, at last,
to embrace all that I am. . .
all that I was destined to become.

So ~o~o. . .
as the bells toll midnight
and 2013 comes into view,
I'll be embarking upon a new journey.

A journey from within
that will become an external reflection On Crooked Creek!

It is my hope that you will
"come experience the journey of life On Crooked Creek!"

Until next time. . .
