Have you ever heard that saying .... ALL is well with my SOUL !!
That is how I feel.
ISNT it amazing how GOD has the perfect plan ..
Even when we think the plan is not perfect....If you sometimes let that door close.
YOU just might be surprised on what DOOR will open.
I have moved to another area ..OH YEA
The RUSTY PEARL is smack dab in the middle of
COUNTRY .. SO I am keeping it country over here LOL
Having said that the Salt and the AIR and the Water is who I am
THE SEA runs thru me.
Those who have that relationship with it ..GET it !!
I loved this picture about NOT looking back. I have
been looking forward and GOD has blessed me daily. SO thankful .
I have some thrifty treasures that I am painting and will post those very soon.
I wanted to share with you my favorite quote..
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the door of deeds could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena , whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly: who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms , the great devotions, and spends himself in a worth cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst , if he fails, at least fails while daring that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat...
I read that daily.. It inspires me.. WHAT is your favorite quote  ?
Thanks for blessing me .. HUGS and have a beautiful week .. LOVE< Sherry


  1. Wow, Sherry, you have been busy! I love your post and they are words that we all need to remember at times! I'm looking forward to seeing your painted items!

  2. Oh so inspiring! I love your post. Your quote gives me energy and makes me want to do those things I've only been thinking about. Thank you!

  3. Hi Sherry,
    Think you so much for stopping by this week. I am so glad things are going well for you.
    One of my fav catch phrases when things get hectic is "this too shall pass" for some reason it always soothes me :)

  4. Hope you are settling in to your new job and area. Are you now a long way from the sea? One of my favourite quotes is "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

  5. Of course I am just delighted to hear that you are a country girl now! How exciting! I hope you're liking it out there. I have to say my favorite quote (and the one that inspired us to make our move to the country) is by Thoreau - "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Life the life you have imagined."

  6. You always leave the kindest comments on my blog and I just wanted you to know how much they mean to me! I hope you're well and that your move goes well!

  7. What a beautiful quote. So glad you shared it with us!
    Have a great week!

  8. I'm so pleased that you are thriving in the country. Thank you for sharing that quote. Some of my favorite quotes are:
    "Have things, don't let things have you."
    "There's a difference between stuff and success."
    "You only get in life what you have the courage to ask for."
    And, "The secret to being wise is knowing what to overlook."

    I have so many more, but there's only so much time...LOL.

    Looking forward to seeing your thrifted treasures.


  9. Welcome to the country, Sista! I know all of this has to be a big change...but at least you are stepping our and experiencing new and wonderful is always easy to go back but it takes an adventureous heart to step forward...I pray nothing but blessings for you my friend and Sister in Christ. Adventure Blessings to you!

  10. I've always loved this line from Don Quixote: "The maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be."

  11. Blessings to you in your new adventure!! So good to know God is in control isn't it? :)
