This is a picture I took awhile back.. titled..

{Reflections of roses}

I had Elizabeth draw a name early for the give-a-way because I am going to take a break from blogging for a couple of weeks. The winner is Jann from A Vintage Heart blogspot.

Jann please e-mail me your address so I can get your package in the mail.

I need to get some stuff done around the house really bad. But, I am going to get to the responses left..

I leave you with this quote.

"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do."

- Pope John XIII (1881- 1963)

today's song, Johny and June..beautiful, beautiful song..makes me cry every time i hear it..

if you have time please listen to it..

1st video, 1st clip

Hi Nita, have a great break and hope you can get all accomplished that you need to. Getting things done sometimes can make us feel more at peace. I just wanted to let you know I was hosting my

God bless and thanks for all your encouragement....

I will miss you, too, Nita--but take all the time you need. I am flattered that I was picked to receive something from you--no, I'm honored. I would like to email you and send you postage, but I cannot access your email address from my computer on your profiles list, so if you have time, you can send it to me via my email address:

Sally said...

I'm catching up on reading, Nita. I hope the time away will be blessed for you, and I'll look forward to you coming back. ((HUGS))

Karen said...

That quote could not be more perfect for what I needed to hear. That is really cool. See you back here soon. I pray that God will be with you as you take this break.

Maggie Ann said...

I came over from Jann's to visit and saw in your profile that you have the movie 'Girl of the Limberlost'...I Love that book & movie. I saw too that you love the Elsie Dinsmore series...I have many of that set...and Willa Cather...and I forget what else you had there that I have enjoyed so many times. Its not that often you find another person that has the same taste in books as you do. What a nice thing it is too. Have you ever seen Rowena and the Seal vcr movie?

Sandi McBride said...

Oh you sweetheart! Thinking of me while you're antiquing!!! I wish I could (((((hug))))) you girl...I have to tell you something so sweet... My youngest son, Noah asked me about you the other night. He wanted to know how you were doing. I just had to tell you that a little ten year old in Georgia is thinking of you :)
love and hugs to you Nita,

Nita Jo said...

Thanks for leaving the nice comment about my Photo Challenge photos! I will also be away from the computer for a week or so beginning Monday, unless plans change. I'll "drop in" to see you when I get back. Have a peaceful break... but not for too long!

Nita Jo (I almost wrote "the other Nita" at the top...) *smiles*

Jeanne said...

Sunflowers are such amazing flowers they grow so tall reaching up to the sun and even with their huge weight from the flower don't fall down. Your rose reflection is beautiful. Thanks for sharing that song and video. Love Johnny and June, what a love story.

Annette said...
