Lonley old farmhouse

I like to take long rides in the country and passed this house one day. Of course I had to stop and take a picture. I got out and walked around the property. It was so beautiful. I tried to imagine who had lived there. Had they been happy? I imagined the long winter evenings spent in their kitchen reading by lamplight. Or maybe the huge family dinners they had every Sunday after church. The kids playing tag in their huge yard. I left after a few minutes, but still carry the memory of the lonely old farmhouse with me.

I love old houses like this.
Have you ever seen the movie called "Ghost Story"? I think it was made in the late 70's or early 80's. It is one of my favorites. I have watched it over and over. Also the original black and white version of "The Haunting".

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.

Pick out one person a day to encourage.

Please pray for the protection of Israel.
And for the Jewish people who live there. May God give them the strength they need to defeat their enemies.
