The Beauty of Life

A quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder, from her newspaper and magazine article writings:

"We are all so busy, but what are we living for anyway,

and why is the world so beautiful if not for us?...

The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes,

and surely it is in the everyday things around us

that the beauty of life lies."

Dear friends, will you please pray for my friend Lisa today?

Blessings to you!


  1. I LOVE the photos you share.

    What a fun day it looked like you had.

    I will be praying for Lisa.


  2. I will definitely pray for Lisa! May the Lord give her peace and healing and be with the rest of her family as well.

    Lots of love,

  3. Hi Rebecca,
    I have been following your blog for quite some time now, but never commented before.
    I just had to today because I am reading the Little House series with my boys and we are all about life on the Prairie and Laura Ingalls! I don't home school my boys, but have enjoed following along with your adventures. I also appreciate all your parenting advice. :) One can always improve in that area, yes??
    Great photos!

  4. Welcome Gabi!

    So glad to have you here!

    We love the Little House series too! How great that you are reading them to your boys!

    Farmer Boy might be my personal favorite. Is that odd coming from a mom with 5 girls? Maybe. : )

    Their model of hard work enjoying their family has continued to be a wonderful example to us for years.

    Blessings to you!

  6. Hi Kimberly! Thank you! And thank you for praying for my friend. I really appreciate that.
