My Day Was Brightened


I've had a lovely couple of days. Friday was spent attending the funeral of a dear Christian man who my family and I have known for years. The funeral was held in the church I grew up in so my family and I really enjoyed catching up with the dear friends there. So much to talk about, it's been about 4 years since I've seen most of these dear saints. How I love them all! It was such a joyous time remember a special life and praising the Lord for a glorious testimony. So many smiles at a funeral! :)

"Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints." Psalm 116:15

Saturday I heard from two special friends through Facebook and have really enjoyed sharing the news of one dear friend's recent engagement. The other friend is cause of prayer and reflection, a special friend to me.


I so enjoy watching people and especially watching them smile! This is yet another reason period dramas appeal to me. The special moments that make you just want to smile from ear to ear!
These experiences spurred me on to finish a picture and music video I had been working on. Pictures of period couples smiling set to the song 'I've Got To See You Smile' a fun upbeat song. I really had so many pictures I wanted to use so I added another song 'It's A Beautiful World'. Hope you enjoy this little ditty!

Looking forward to part 2 of Return to Cranford on Masterpiece Theatre tonight!
Hope you have a beautiful day filled with many reasons to smile! :)

I love the bonnet that Margaret is wearing in your new header.

I like the moments you chose for the video. Henry Tilney's silly grin certainly made me smile as did a few other characters.

ps. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your family's friend.

Katherine, thank you, he was a special friend, life a grandfather. I'm glad he's not suffering anymore but is in heaven.

I couldn't resist putting in many Henry Tilney pics! He's my favorite Austen hero from the books, and JJ Field (the actor) isn't bad either. ;)
