a smile and a wink

I stepped out last night to look at a couple
heavenly bodies...

...and they winked back at me!

It was Moon and Jupiter.

I said, "just a minute guys, I'll be right back with my camera!"
They waited ever so quietly as the winds kept the clouds away.
I snapped a half a dozen pictures and then thanked them for posing so sweetly.
If it's a clear night where you are, go outside and look UP!
It's a real WOW moment.

What a beautiful universe God made!


“The moon, like a flower

In heaven's high bower,

With silent delight

Sits and smiles on the night.”

 William Blake

And I pray that you,
 being rooted and established in love,
may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people,

to grasp
is the love
of Christ,
and to know this love that surpasses knowledge
—that you may be filled to the measure
of all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:14-21

{Finding His gifts in the skies above and in the gardens along my paths...}

Enjoy heavenly skies at

and Pink Saturday at Beverly's!

Early Signs

The northeast has had AMAZING weather.
Today it was in the 60's!

Early signs of spring are everywhere these days.

Doesn't God know know how to decorate for spring!
It's beautiful!
Last year's lil' crabapples dangling like red earrings, new spring buds and aqua skies.
Aqua and Red
And now we know why we love these colors together!
Look at the red new buds on this tree!

The crocuses are opening up... 
After I cropped this photo, I noticed a bee doing some early spring work!

This was fun to see.
And, YES! I did hop on the squares :o) 
That's a must!

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.
-Charles Dickens

Spring has returned.
The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
-Rainer Maria Rilke
May we find the hope of spring blossoming in our hearts
like poetry!
Have a wonderful week, dear friends 

Enjoy more sky views by visiting
Sky Watch Friday!

Friends in Spirit

I think of you all so often.

...the dear people I have met through blogging.
You have all inspired me in so many ways.
If you look in my cupboards or my desk, you would smile
to see some of your inspirations.

{heart-shaped apple tarts, Nordicware, Dutch magazines, goats milk soap, lots of Earl Grey tea}

baking and cooking, photography and homemade cards,
learning how to wrap pretty packages for family and friends,

Thank you for being a friend
        ~ Maria
