The Village with Hope.....

I wake up each day and my mind is already hours ahead of the moment that really exist.   My thinking has exceeded the present hour of the day and has forwarded itself into the zone of busyness!

This is the norm for me and for many others who are engaged into this very busy world along beside me.   :(

Not all who surround us are geared to this type of living.   My sweet precious niece is one of them.  Tammy is one of God's forever children and she attends the day program at Breckenridge 
Village, which is a Faith Based Community for adults with mild to moderate intellectual and developmental disabilities.   



Each November, BVT prepares for their annual 
"Christmas in the Village"

At this event......the village has a bizarre where guest can purchase many of the handiwork's and art pieces that the residents have made.  They also have a lighting of the Village as well as games and entertainment.  

I attended this event on Saturday and it was truly a beautiful experience.






This is one of Tammy's paintings which was on display.

This painting was also made into Note Cards that turned out so cute!


This is another purchase that I made.....

HOPE.....this 4 letter word is  "Confident Expectation"
and this is exactly what this Village is all about!

Confident Expectation for a better life.....a life that is filled with love and compassion..... a safe haven..... and being able to experience a normal life with others who live this same kind of normal life as you.

This truly was a Blessing and I wanted to share it with each of you!
I am so very Thankful for Breckenridge and for the difference that this place has made in the life of my niece!

Blessings to each of you..

sweet morning scenes

It's a happy....Rainy.....day around here!   I woke up to the sound of thunder this morning.    The gentle sound of rolling thunder makes me want to stay in bed and sleep more!  

The morning scenes around here are such sweet Blessings.   



A nice gentle rain.........This speaks Fall to me......

and a Breakfast table FULL of shelled pecans!!!

Just letting the pecans air out a bit, before bagging them up to go in the freezer!!

As we near Thanksgiving, may we  realize that there are people all around us who are hungry.  Not only are they hungry and in need of something to eat, but many are hungry for love and for a compassionate smile!

Random acts of kindness on our part can change the outlook of the season for not only the person we Bless, but in our own lives as well.

"Give and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."
Luke 6:38 kjv
