On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Blue Monday in June

It is a Blue Monday indeed when your company has gone! Our visitors left yesterday and it seemed they were here for only a moment. Well, maybe they were, after all! The trip was about soccer and that is pretty much how we spent our weekend except for the times we were eating, sleeping or traveling. Whew! They did great and it was wonderful to see them, if only for a short time. I will have pics of them tomorrow ... but today is Blue Monday! 

I'm linking up today with Backyard Neighbor. She has some beautiful photos over there, and you can also add your blue to Blue Monday.

This blue is a view from our suite on the American Queen
Steamboat traveling up the Mississippi River in 2015. 
Some beautiful blues here.

This could rightly be called the "Blue Plate Special!"
It is a place setting in the dining room at the
Nottoway Plantation. Our guide informed us that
each setting was worth $1,000.00!

And a rainbow's end!

  6. WOW...all soo pretty! The place setting is gorgeous, can you imagine that price though? I know all about those "blue Mondays" when family/guests leave. I always go through withdrawals, no matter how long or short the visit. Enjoy your week!

  7. Oh my goodness, those are just beautiful photos (even hubby!). That place setting doesn't look like $1,000 but I believe it. Gorgeous! Glad to hear you had such a good weekend!
