In the Midst of the Storm..

Hello everyone.. 
How are you all doing? 

Here in Eastern Canada we have a visitor by the name of Hurricane Arthur... 
I believe he has had rather more power in the States and has downgraded to a tropical storm here but we are having fierce winds and tons of rain... 

But you dear girls who have faithfully followed my blog through the years know that this is my kind of weather.. smile.. 
I do not want it to harm anyone but when it is just a tropical storm then it is not too bad for people.. 
The hydro is out all over the province but ours is doing ok so far.. 

This afternoon Terry and I went for a little drive just to see how the Bay of Fundy was doing.. 
The waves were wonderful although I have seen them much higher.. 
We even went over to Lighthouse Road as the waves are more awesome there.. 
On the way over Terry informed me that we were supposed to stay off the roads but I hadn't known that.. 

There were several trees down and my friend lost 2 of hers.. 
We have one huge elm tree on our lot and it is right over our bedroom.. 
Terry thinks I am silly but I plan on sleeping in our grandson's club room if this wind is not down by the time we go to bed.. 
I love the wind but not when I am under a tree.. grin. 
Several years ago here a huge tree fell on my VW but didn't do any damage.. 
They were calling it the Miracle on Beach Street... lol.. 

Over on Light House Road the daisies were everywhere and as I was soaked to the skin anyway with my picture taking I decided to gather a few and put them on the dining room table.. 
I love daisies.. They are just so country.. eh? 

I made muffins today, also.. 
Bran muffins..

We have been home a couple of times last week but I will post on that later.. 

This storm reminds me of one of my favorite songs.. 
Just click HERE..
It will bless your heart..

No matter who we are we all go through storms in our lives.. 
Even when we know Jesus as our Savior life still happens to us.. 
The difference between knowing Christ and not knowing Him is that when the hard times come we have a refuge.. 
He is there beside us during the storm and he comforts us and lightens our heavy load.. 
We don't need to visit him or call him up He is there beside us at all times.. 

I find Him precious... 

Well this is it for tonight dear hearts.. 
Thanks so much for your visits and comments and even your phone calls..
So sweet.. 

Hope where ever you are you and your families are safe.. 
Take care and may the Lord bless and keep you.. 


  1. Thank you so much for your sweet words. It truly is such a comfort to know He is always with us!

  2. I love the song "I will praise you in this storm" by: Casting Crowns. It was our theme song during Anna's chemo year. Yes HE is our strength in the storms of Life!

  3. I love it that you enjoy tropical storms...enough to be out photo shooting it and then to bring home some treasures as beautiful as daisies! I love the picture you did of the daisies, the candle (love the candlestick) and the muffins. I could visualize sitting there with you enjoying a cup of tea and a muffin.

  4. Hello Dear Heart...My family and I were saying that Arthur was heading your way and I asked them to say a quick prayer for you and your family. I am so glad all is well and you are enjoying the rainstorm. We spent the weekend with our children at our daughter's cottage. Had so much fun. So wonderful to be together! We are waiting for the baby boy (maybe August 23). Everyone is so excited about it. Faye, your pictures are fantastic. That camera must be another good one...or maybe it is the picture taker....LOL! Every picture is very interesting. I love the waves, the lighthouse, the daisies ...I love it all!

  5. I am so glad to hear that all is well. We were at our lake house which is quite a ways inland and did not even have a gray sky from the hurricane. Our son in the Boston area had a very rainy 4th of July.

  6. Faye I was thinking of you when I heard of the Hurricane traveling through New Brunswick and said to the man upstairs keep both Faye and family as well as Pamela and family safe over there ! I am glad you are . Lovely photos . Hope the storm passes soon . Thanks for sharing . have a good and safe evening !

  7. There is even beauty to be found in a storm.
    Glad that you are safe.
    Love the daisies, and ferns..... very sweet, and very country.

    Lovely thoughts about Christ. Thanks for sharing.


  8. Thank you, Faye! Your sweet words about Jesus were just what I needed to hear. God is so good! Enjoy your day and God bless.

  9. I love me a good storm too! Glad that Arthur didn't cause you any harm!

  10. Your words and pictures were beautiful.

  11. Beautiful pictures and beautiful post

  12. Wasn't that a wild storm, Faye? We only lost a part of a cedar tree which turns out to be rotten in the centre so it will have to some down some day. There is an unbelievable amount of trees down all over our area and our 2 neighbours lost about 8 huge Manitoba Maples. Our son lost 5 of his. There are thousands of trees down now in the province and power still out. We made out fine though with our generator. I've not seen a worse storm I don't think. It would be awesome to see the waves along the coast after the storm. Glad your big elm stayed up! Your pictures are great and I love daisies too. Blessings, Pam

  13. The daisies look beautiful. How well they weathered the storm.
    Keep safe and warm.

  14. I so agree Faye, Your vase of Daisies and ferns are precious.. They have a very contented feeling.
