WFW~~A Mini Retreat

I am so excited to be back in the word and posting on Word Filled Wednesday again. It has been a few weeks and I have missed it.

I took this picture a couple of weeks ago when I went to a party at a friends house. She lives on a working farm and it is absolutely beautiful! Besides the several fruit trees growing in the yard she has a garden where the kids and I picked blueberries, blackberries and cucumbers.

As if that weren't wonderful enough there is a huge swimming pool in her back yard where everyone swam until they were exhausted!

This is a picture of the arbor that separates the garden from the pool and patio.

Is that not gorgeous????

It's always a fun place to visit and even if I don't get to travel anywhere this year I feel like I got to enjoy a vacation for a day.

For more Word-Filled Wed. blessings be sure to visit Amydeanne.

That pool is beautiful...It's like being at a spa for the rich and famous all day.:)

I love days like that with friends.

Kim said...

Wow....what a beautiful setting!!! I LOVE the pool area and the adorable umbrella hanging above the pool.

Great scripture as well.

Isn't is amazing how God provides "vacation" for us, even if it's not in the form we want? I'm so glad you have been able to find some ways to enjoy a "rest"...a "stop in your busy week", to find time to "vacation".

Have a great day.

Those verses in Isaiah are amazing! It's not often that we think of quietness and confidence together.

Your friend's house is beautiful! What a great place to visit.
