Times of fellowship....

...times of peace...


.... mixing in seriousness....

....and of course MORE laughter... :)

All a blessings from above! Friends are a blessing and such a gift from the Lord.


Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.
Proverbs 27:9 NIV

I'm feeling rather poetic tonight....and a whole mixed bag of other feelings. What's that saying "Never blog when you're emotional" or is that "never shop when your hungry"? :D One of those. :)

Poppies! Such pretty, cheerful things. It's amazing how design is found ALL over creation. To start to think it just all "appeared" is so illogical.

I have got a jammed day but I wanted to stop by and blog if I could fit that in. Hannah and I are going to experiment with some photo techniques for our new album photos today, Lord willing. I'm really really excited about how the CD art is coming together. This info is probably more for the family blog but oh well. Speaking of which, I NEED to update that SOON. :) As I may have mentioned life has been a blur since we got home.

And, I guess that's all from the news desk here at Carol's Capers headquarters for today. :)


"The earth is filled with your love, O LORD; teach me your decrees."

The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.

Luke 6:45 NIV

Oh may we bring JOY to our heavenly Father today!

God's gift of salvation is such a mighty, migthy work.
How can we forget such a great love?

Jesus is a living example of true LOVE and, glory to God, He dwells in the praises of His people. How awesome is that?!


Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous:
"The LORD's right hand has done mighty things!

Psalm 118:15 NIV

Oh what life brings you never had expected
What trials you never thought you'd face
What things you never thought you'd weather
But you have and only through His grace
Not shrinking back in fear but following His commands so dear
I see His love and care as he whispers, "fear not child, I'm right here"

Looking back through the years on the hopes and tears
Oh the laughter and joy, and pain with lessons clear
I'll never trade for what I've learned from His loving hand
As the prayer of my heart cries "draw me closer, closer Lord please!"
As my will is breaking, yes breaking more every day
I know whom I have believed and He will guide along life's way

Now the wind is blowing again, oh Lord another test?
May I be found faithful and lean on Jesus' rest.

News Flash: THE TULIPS [planted in November] HAVE BLOOMED!


Sorry for this seeming abandonment of my blog except for photos here and there. I know a few of you still come back to check on me according to my counter. Thank you! :) April was a different kind of month and I've had not much time to be updating. As in all of life we should be in constant communication with the Lord about our hopes, struggles, desires and most importantly HIS will when the clouds come rolling in. I heard this song on my laptop this morning and thought I'd share it.

When you left your room this morning,
Did you think to pray?
In the name of Christ our Savior,
Did you ask for loving favor,
As a shield today?

Oh, how praying rests the weary!
Prayer will change the night to day;
So in sorrow and in gladness,
Don’t forget to pray.

When you met with great temptation,
Did you think to pray?
By His dying love and merit,
Did you claim the Holy Spirit
As your guide and stay?

When your heart was filled with anger,
Did you think to pray?
Did you plead for grace, my brother,
That you might forgive another
Who had crossed your way?

When sore trials came upon you,
Did you think to pray?
When your soul was bowed in sorrow,
Balm of Gilead did you borrow
At the gates of day?


“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV

Love is






Not envying


Not boasting






Seeking the good for others


Slow to be angry


Keeps no records of wrongs


Delights and rejoices in the truth








Never Fails
