Hello,
Thanks for stopping by to see my blog.
I hope your visit will be a pleasant one. I grew up in Idaho , living mostly in the country. I have a great adoration for the beautiful mountains and nature.
My most cherished memory was walking through a fresh Winter snow fall in the mountains when all I could hear was the chirp of a snowbird & the crunch of my feet in the fresh snow.
I now live in TN. Where the snow doesn’t fall very often but there is other wonders to explore here. My ancestors lived in this state at one time . I have been doing family genealogy research as well as my arts.
I cherish every day as a blessed gift from the Lord. May health and happiness abide.
I will use my blog to write about beautiful things and places in my life. I hope you will visit often.
~Shirley

favorite poems

The following is a poem written by my husband. I think it is very true and wanted to share it here.

Dreamer of Dreams

I'm a dreamer of dreams. A writer of song.
Please take my hand and you come along.
For what you've become, You shouldn't be.
Be a dreamer of dreams and set yourself free.

Be a dreamer of dreams. It's all up to you.
Just look past today and make yourself new.
Don't limit yourself to what they think you are.
Be a dreamer of dreams and follow your star.

Believe in yourself ~ if you dare not you don't.
Just trust in your life ~ if you cannot you won't.
For dreams can come true for the common man.
Have faith in your God and His plan ... for you.

Be a dreamer of dreams. But don't hesitate.
Just reach for your star before it's too late.
Now don't you grow old and then hear yourself say,
I once had a dream. But my dream slipped away.

Be a dreamer of dreams ...
Copyrite poem by Joelon Wilson



SHIP OF DREAMS

My friend, you're setting sail today
To seek your dreams and find your way
And though I grieve to see you go
We all must seek our dreams, to grow

So as the mist doth fill my eyes
I wish you well and realize
Without a dream, life is naught
A wealth of lessons, still untaught

I wish fair winds and mental peace
As your life heads to uncharted seas
And may the dreams you dare dream
All come to play and reign supreme

I bid farewell to you, my friend
And pray that we shall meet again
And that life's paths again shall twine
As your ship of dreams, sails close to mine
