An Afternoon at Sanctuary Lake

This past weekend my husband, our granddaughter Avery, and I spent a couple of hours at our lot on Sanctuary Lake in Madison County, Mississippi.It was a gorgeous June day, with big fluffy-white clouds overhead, and bright blue skies reflected in the lake waters.

Here are a few of the pictures I captured while we were there ...

Avery had fun collecting rocks ...

And putting them in the "triangle" we made so they wouldn't get lost.

She also amused herself by trying to catch a butterfly on her finger ...

The many faces of Avery Grace ...


Sorry, I tend to get sidetracked by taking pictures of Avery. Here are some more pictures of the lake ...

If you are a regular visitor to Southern Lagniappe, you may remember that our house is up for sale. Unfortunately, with the housing market being depressed countrywide, and especially slow here in Vicksburg (for sellers, anyway), our moving and house-building plans are in limbo for the time being.

Our plan is to sell our house and lease one in Madison County, where we'll be closer to our lot while building the new house, and also be closer to Avery and her mommy and daddy and baby brother, who will be born soon. That's the plan, anyway ...

In the meantime, we'll just have to try to be patient and pray that God will send some special people along who will love our house as much as we do.

Oh, and, Lord ... would you please send them soon?

Oh, those peaceful Sunday afternoons, with Church in the morning to fill your heart, and a good Sunday dinner, then the ride to somewhere calm and welcoming, with nothing in particular to do.

I can just feel the strength of that June-day sunshine, and the smooth of the lake.

Having a sweet little companion to share all the discoveries (and show them to you through fresh young eyes) is THE lagniappe of all time---a rare and special gift.

What a beautiful spot. I can see why you are anxious to move...not to mention being closer to your family.

The reflections of the trees in the water is so peaceful.

Hope your dream comes true soon!
