"Lord, this humble house we'd keep, sweet with play and calm with sleep. Help us so that we may give beauty to the lives we live. Let Thy bounty and Thy grace shine upon our dwelling place." ~ E. A. Guest. Hello...welcome to A Barrow of Blessings!


All because you briefly stopped...

When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
The world becomes a lovely thing!
There’s beauty as you’ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.


All creation praises Him..

All creation praises Him

Who clothes the grass and feeds the fowls of the air

saying to one another

"Who is like our God?"

"And Who have we to praise, besides Him?"

"For He looks upon our lowliness and covers us with His glory - selah!"


Soft and slow moments..

Spring has sprung!

Our peach and nectarine trees are smothered in soft pink blossoms.
I'm spending a lot of  hours in the garden watching delicate petals float about,
 and listening to the birds and bees as they get busy for the new season.
It's time to slow down and enjoy the moment...because it will be gone all too quickly and I don't want to miss it!
