Ok dear ladies here I am again showing off my life and the colors of it.
My town is fairly small and not to close to much and so there are days where it can feel dreary, so I am dedicating this post to "my colorful little town" ~ . The past 4 days have been a religious holiday here everything was closed for a few days and our kids had a 5 day weekend so our family went out yesterday and hit the town to try and find something new to do. Today, Wednesday is the last day of Kurban Bayram.
This is what we found to enjoy:
A sunny fall day.
Horse drawn carriage (mind you it is an ugly work horse but still a carriage).
Homemade crocheted items displayed that celebrate Turkish creativity and style.
Sweet delights like: feeding the birds or finding a small pet store.
Balloons, that my kids seemed to be mesmerized by at every corner.
Isn't this crocheted baby blanket beautiful?
I also love the scarf my daughter is modeling!
This is a picture of our downtown before the crowds hit. Turkey is typically a late night culture and so anything before noon on weekends or Holidays is out of the question. :)
Our horse drawn carriage ride was full of laughter, cars almost re-ending us,
a slippery seat that kids kept falling off of and an ultimate success experience!
It is easy to allow discontentment to creep into my heart and thoughts. This post is for me because I am grateful and I want to say it and see it, even if I am struggling feeling it, I know it will help cultivate sweet joy in my heart. This post is about me enjoying where I am and what I have. I want to stop wanting more than I have and enjoy thoroughly what is around me, to notice the small pleasures that are there to eyes full of contentment. Often my attitude dictates what my eyes see. ~
Today what do you see? :)
"Truly my soul silently waits for God; from Him comes my salvation. My soul wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him." Ps. 62:1,5
I hope you have enjoyed a few moments into our (my) world. Until next time...
