Barn Charm

A working farm in the Rhineland area
of mid Missouri.  Lots of farms and corn
fields around this area. 
I spotted this barn on my walk
along the Katy Trail.
I am joining Tricia's Barn Charm!

Weston Church

This is Holy Trinity Church in
Weston, Missouri.
It sits high on a hill above the town.

It looks large and imposing in these pictures,
but it isn't very big. It was built in 1912.
I visited Weston last Sunday on a rather
rainy overcast day.  We climbed the hill
to the church so I could take these pictures.
It's a lovely, peaceful place.
I'm joining Inspired Sunday!
"The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be
with you all.  Amen." - Revelation 22:21
Have a blessed Sunday!

Return to Cross Stitch

I am revisiting a craft that I haven't done in years!
There was a time when cross stitch was my main
craft of choice. 
Elizabeth inspired me to get started again!
I was going through my old cross stitch
magazines and ran across this very simple
sampler pattern.
I thought it would be perfect to do one
for each of my kids.
The magazine is from 1990 and I felt like the
colors of floss called for was a little outdated, so
I chose a selection of DMC in varying
shades of aqua.
Along with the old patterns I found this 'almost
finished' sampler that I started many years ago.
It's a shame I never finished it!
I still think it's so pretty.  I just may go ahead
and finish it up, too!
"He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly, To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?" - Micah 6:8

Tobacco Barn

I had the pleasure of visiting Weston, Missouri
this past weekend.  I always look forward to seeing
the tobacco barns that grace the landscape.
It is impossible to tell from these pictures just
how huge this one is!
If I were to pick my favorite Missouri barn,
this one would be right up at the top!
Joining Barn Charm!

He is a great King over all the earth." - Psalm 47:2

Stone Church

This pretty church sits in
historic downtown Kirkwood, Missouri.
We walked by last week on a sweltering
day!  I loved the stonework on it!

Beauty along the Trail

The trek along the Katy Trail has
become such a passion in my life.
Even though the miles are tiring and
it can be very hot and humid some days,
I am so satisfied that I did it!

I think you can see by the scenery I've
shown so far that there is so much beauty
along the trail that it is awe inspiring.
That's not to say that there aren't plenty of
woods with little to see and mosquitos to
swat, but the gems along the way make
up for it!

This butterfly was laying on the trail
and he was so beautiful that I stopped to
take a picture and zoomed in close.
I then edited it so that you could see
him even closer and I love that you
can see the surface of the trail.

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of your mind, that
you may prove what is that good and acceptable
and perfect will of God." - Romans 12:2

City Barn

This little barn has been swallowed up by
town.  It sits in what once was a busy barnyard, but
the farming is past and now a busy road runs in front
and businesses have popped up all around.
It's one I pass practically every day and
always puts a smile on my face.
Joining Barn Charm!

Inspired Sunday

I am returning to Rhineland, Missouri
this week.  A grand old church across
a corn field!
I snapped this picture on a Sunday morning
as the congregation was gathering.

Covered Bridge

I am totally smitten with covered bridges!
We are so lucky in Missouri to have 4
historic covered bridges still standing.
I was pleased to discover this modern
covered bridge in a neighborhood in St. Peter's,
Missouri.  It was built in 1976.
It still gave my heart a flutter!
There is a charm about these bridges
that totally captivate me.
I couldn't help but think how awesome
it would be to live here and get to drive
through it every day!
"Blessed be the Lord,
Who daily loads us with benefits,
The God of our salvation!  Selah"

The Tortoise and the Hare

It was very funny to run into these
two creatures of fable on my walk!
Just as you might expect, the hare was
way ahead of the tortoise!
I couldn't stick around long enough
to see if the hare was going to take a
nap in the woods, but he did run off the
side of the trail. 
I love the canopied walk through
this section.  It lends itself very
well to fairytales.
"For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro
throughout the whole earth, to show Himself
strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal

Barn Charm

Such a nice farm scene along the
Katy Trail.  I am enjoying the sights
as I walk!  It is very heartwarming to
see farms like this one.
