Barns = photo happiness!

Wow!  It is already July 23rd!  The summer is going way to fast for me.  I find myself reflecting alot on where we were last year at this time.  We had made the move from Hanna, our life of 25 years, and things were exciting and scary all at the same time as we started getting settled in our new place.

I was filled with worry and fear as we waited for the property in Hanna to sell, there were ups and downs with the offer that finally was accepted, Darrell was still going back to work at the mine, there seemed like a mountain of work here, a kitchen to remodel when I had just left a beautiful kitchen behind, new jobs and co workers to get to know, .....

BUT!  I am so glad that I held on for the ride,,,,,not to well at times, but I held on anyways !  God has been faithful in so many things.  TRUST was the word that I would often just keep repeating to myself as I struggled through some of last summer.

I know that this is the place we are suppose to be for the next season of our lives though....we have been blessed with new and old friends here, jobs,  a wonderful church, family dinners and get togethers, since we are on the trans Canada hiway now we have been blessed with more family stopping in as they scoot across the prairies, and a new kitchen here as well!!  (pics of our reno to follow soon!)

Anyways... the reason for my post is Barn Charm and Mosaic Monday...so be sure to stop by these blogs to see some great photos!  After this I am off to see my new great nephew!!  He made his appearance and I need to get in a baby cuddle!!


We attended a wedding and on the way stopped to get a photo of quite a few barns...


Some editing fun in Picmonkey...so glad that you can edit your collage without having to go back n forth on your screens!  Thank you Picmonkey people!!


"Praise the Lord, oh my soul and "forget not" all His benefits"
Psalm 103:2

Have a great day everyone! and thanks for stopping by the country!

Such beautiful barn pic's. I have yet to visit picmonkey. I have good intentions...but need to find a block of time to play.

This barn is definitely a good remembrance of the traditional style of all barns. Look how cool the roof shape is, and it looks like it's been well-maintained by the owner. If I have this kind of barn, I will surely take care of it well enough to extend its life expectancy for my grandchildren to see. Two thumbs up for an awesome shot! >>Lenore Lung @ ProfessionalRoofingContractors.com

Oh, my this barn is a real beauty, too. Of course, I seldom see one I don't like. Still...this is definitely one of the finer ones I have seen.

This is a great discovery, Dawna! With it's wooden structure and plain white roof, it is a great representation of a traditional barn. I just hope all barns are like this, well-maintained by it's owner. Kent Ahlquist @ PittsburghAreaRoofers.com
