Misty Autumn Morn

The view from my window into the Faery Ring.


Come away oh human child to the waters and the wild
with a faery hand in hand for the worlds more full of weeping
than you can understand.

W.B. Yeats


Peering out the screen door to the winding path
that leads to the roses and the world beyond the picket fence.

Oh Cori your gardens are heavenly. The window view, awe, into the faery garden, awe...just the window is lovely to look at. The picket fence and gates all adorned with roses...someday, if we could ever afford gas, I will journey down south and visit you.

Your quote by Yeats is also a favorite. I have it in my quote journal to use on my blog too.

So, when you visited Kansas City for a conference did it happen to be a House of Prayer Conference, with Mike Bickle? Because they host huge conferences that people travel from far and wide to attend. Kansas City is beautiful and I concider it my second home. It was very hard to leave because we we're a part of the Int. House of Prayer ministry spending many hours everyday in His house worshipping and praying. But it was also very good to return 'home' to California. We we're home sick. We are still waiting for a House of Prayer to establish here in our city that we can serve in.

Bless you this lovely Sunday morning in the mist.

Beautiful pictures. I love fog. We have a small pond across the street from us and some of my favorite mornings are to stand at my front door and watch the fog as it moves and hovers above the water.

Melody Green is a wonderful woman of God. I used to get her little magazines way back, now I forget what they we're called. I know I kept a few copies that are in my boxes of books in the messy garage. I did not know she moved to K.C. I knew she was speaking at Conferences and working with the ministry there. Y.W.A.M too. The people there are so warm and embracing. I miss them. You would love it there. But you may get homesick for the coast. MOre than you realize, especially being the born and raised by the seaside. It is good to have a grounded husband when you've got that gypsy spirit. I hope to never leave the coast again, I ached for it when we lived there. But that is not why we returned. We returned because I became very ill...a trip to the emergency room,and the Doc telling me I need to move back home, had my hubby packing and moving us within two weeks.

I found your blog on Pink Saturday. Today I had time to visit longer and I have had such a good time. I humbly ask if I could please use your graphic at the bottom of the blog about forgiveness. It touched my heart. I will surely give you credit if you say yes. Sincerely, Faith

Cori,
Thank you for your prayers. I have a job!!!! Yeah...
I love your gardens. They are beautiful. Oh that we lived next door to each other. I would bring my tea pot and we would have some tea in that beautiful garden of your.
Again thank you so much for your prayers. Please keep praying that I am a quick learner.
Hugs
Becky

Oh Cori I just fell in love with your home. It's so cute and romantic looking. Just like in a story book or movie.

Someday maybe I'll be lucky and get an invite over to see it in person. Hint, hint.

Or you could come to my place and help me decorate, paint and have fun turning my place into one like yours.

Hugs,
Joanne
