Just Swingin'

I'm back after a very busy, yet fulfilling Christmas with friends and family.  My daughter-in-law took this picture of me swinging, in this gorgeous wooded area near the Guilford College campus, on Christmas Eve.  Hubby and I attended Ben's Christmas Eve service and were then treated to a delicious meal at their home, with friends and family.

I hope I never get to old to enjoy swinging in the breeze, surrounded by God's beautiful creation.  Taking time to enjoy the moment... a BLESSING indeed!
Now, I'm off to visit all my friends in bloggerville, and catch up on what you've been up to while I was enjoying my Christmas.

Glad you had a wonderful Christmas. All that work and it goes by so quickly! We now have both of our kids birthdays in January to figure out!

I also just discovered that you posted that swimming video here - good idea.

Well, better continue on but wanted to wish you a Happy 2009!

Happy New Year!

Great picture. Sounds like a wonderful evening. December is a month where the blessings of real life take front seat over other things (like blogging) that fade a bit in the glow of time with family and friends.

Tom~ You always phrase it with eloquence... your words just sway in the breeze like me in the swing. Thanks for taking the time to check in... I know your schedule has been hectic lately.

I'm still laughing about the childhood song that you posted. I can't get that tune out of my head and for some reason the word "Camelot" just doesn't sound the same anymore ;-)

Looks like a beautiful spot for swinging, fun photo!
I think everyone has been busy with the holidays, but it's been good hasn't it, being busy with family and friends! The best kind of thing.

I enjoyed the picture. The scerenity of nature, and the uncomplicated peacfulness of the world around us.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Sorry the comment navigation was a bit complicated, but thanks for the feedback. I'll have to take a look and see if I can make it easier to spot. I have added you ro my blogroll as well and will be back.

Have a blessed New Year!

Gail~ It has been good to be busy with family and friends. I'm fortunate to have understanding readers that don't anticipate consistent blogs.

Ian~ I taught an Ian one time in Kindergarten and I'm delighted to have you stop by here today. The peacefulness of nature never fails to intrigue me. God is good!
