Blueberry Time in Georgia!

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Beautiful Blueberries! There is a a "Pick Your Own" Blueberry Farm near my home.
The blueberries are at peak season in June.

All washed and ready to cook down with sugar!After they are put in the processed jars and sealed, they are put back in the canner again for a "hot water bath!" Now all we need are some hot buttered biscuits!
Much Love, Jan

First Father's Day

Thursday, June 18, 2009

This picture really blesses is my boy and his boy. I love the matching shirts, shoes, shorts...and SMILES! My boy will be celebrating his very first Father's Day this Sunday, June 21, 2009. It is also the first day of summer, the beginning of a new season. This picture marks the beginning of a new season in my son's life too! It is one that he has prayed for and waited for, as God in His providence provided a son for my boy and his wife. They are now a family and are loving every day with this precious gift of a son. I thank my Heavenly Father that He provided His Son for us - making a way for us to have eternal life through the atoning death of Christ, and to become part of the forever family of God!
Blessings to you,

Beauty For A Day

Friday, June 12, 2009

You can tell from my blog pictures that I love gardening! I especially love hydrangeas, but I love daylilies just as much. They are such a unique flower. The Latin name is Hemerocallis. The name comes from two Greek words meaning "beauty" and "day," because of the fact that each flower lasts only one day. They are absolutely beautiful this year and are at their peak right now! I have early, mid, and late blooming types, so the season extends to about 3 months. Each flower sends up a "scape," with lots of buds, so even though each bloom only lasts a day, there are more the next morning to bring joy and delight! (New every morning, like the mercies of God.)

South Africa - 2

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Well...we can breathe a sigh of relief that we are really on our way...the passports came! The first picture is before I even opened the envelope! Flights will be booked next week and that is a serious prayer request from my heart to yours! I am not askeered (scared), I am a-claustrophobic! Seriously claustrophobic. In fact, my "most requested story to tell and act out with lots of drama" is about my trip to Chattanooga and RUBY FALLS back in the day when I was a young woman and certainly knew better than to act like I did. The problem was I did not know that Ruby Falls was an UNDERGROUND waterfall until I got down there...all the way down there in a mineshaft. My, my, my. My husband knew we were in trouble when he saw me laying on the ground, holding on to the tour guide's ankles and begging her to take me back UP! She didn't, and I still suffer today...bless my heart. Anyway, back to South Africa. The flight from Atlanta is around 16 hours, so pray for me. That's a long time to be confined. Any good ideas besides a double dose of Ambien? Love y'all so much! Jan

The following pictures tell the story
of Zeke's first haircut...
bless his little heart!
This is Lowe's Barber Shop...
a Family Tradition for the "Morton Men!"

Daddy shows Zeke how it's done... Wow! Chair #2...with "Handlebars...our favorite barber!"

So far so good...Daddy on my right, and Grandaddy on my left!

The situation deteriorates quite rapidly...

It is ON! My daddy and my grandaddy are in on it!

Can I ever trust you again?

"AFTER...and All is Well!"
