Spent most of today cleaning out my wardrobe and yeah I had that ‘brings you joy’ motto stuck in my head. When I got to the bottom I came across a bunch of the kids favourite quilt covers and baby blankets then I found this old quilt cover. When I was a teenager my mum was an Avon lady for a while. One of the gifts she got was this quilt cover. It was on my bed for many years and I seriously loved it. Yes I kept it because yes it brings me joy to see it again 😊 #cleanout#avon#bringsmejoy#childhoodmemories
This morning as I meditated in prayer I was greeted by the warm rays of the morning sun shining through the window and onto me and my Bible. I love this time of day as I am reminded of when I would be with my grandparents getting ready for church on Sunday morning sitting in the family room as the bright morning sun would shine through the window, and smelling wisps of my grandmothers perfume as she ran around preparing the Sunday roast and making sure she and the rest of us were ready. After grandpa died I would sit in the same Sunday sunshine and miss him. As a young adult living in my own place I would sit in my kitchen window and close my eyes thinking about my grandfather and feeling that he was there with me. Then I moved and the bright Sunday sunshine was only found in my bathroom window. When grandma died I would weep as I sat in my bathroom being reminded of those wonderful days in my childhood, and I swear I would smell wisps of her perfume. As I sat basking in the sunshine this morning a revelation came to me; though these moments may remind me of my grandparents, they are not with me. Though there were times I could have sworn their presences were right there in those moments of bright Sunday sunshine, they were not there. But, one thing that HAS been there with me in every Sunday sunshine has been the presence of God. As a child, a teenager, a young adult and now...God has been in my constant. I wept in this revelation that I always knew but had never consumed to this depth in my heart until now! Praise be to God who is the same yesterday, today and forever!
Hebrews 13:8~ Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. NLT

Happy Birthday to the Queen herself! Dolly Parton!
I admired her when I was young with her long blonde hair and southern drawl. And when my mom used to take me to DollyWood when we lived in Tennessee and see all the country artist up on the stage and when she would read me Dolly Partons “coat of many colors”. It was definitely an experience. I am glad that I have that as part of my childhood. ♥️ #southerngirlatheart#tennessee#childhoodmemories#happybirthday#dollyparton
