Front Porch Party


Now doesn't that sound like fun? It makes me want to go out on my front porch and have a few friends over. Especially my bible study friends. These ladies are the best and they appreciate the value of a front porch and the quietness of sitting there with good friends and digging deep into the word of the Lord. Just imagine it: a cold glass of tea or lemonade, a comfy chair, flowers all around you, a gentle breeze, the soft laughter of your very best friends. You feel the Lord blessing you and your friendship together because you have taken time out of your very busy lives to spend time together and to go deeper into His word. And thats what a front porch party is all about. Sharing time with friends.
So lets all head out to our front porches, decks or patios and spruce them up a bit. Make a pitcher of tea or lemonade and invite some friends over or your very best friend- your husband.

The blog that got all of this started is Rose Colored Glasses and they are having a Front Porch Party Thursday June 5. You can go there and see everyones warm and welcoming porches. Here's pictures of my front porch

Love the porch party idea - your porch is lovely. Mine is cold and damp and windy... well it is winter here in Australia so that's to be expected.
Will definitely make time to sit in a warm room with a cup of tea this afternoon though - which is the next best thing.

Hi Dana
I was so busy organizing the party That I forgot to visit all the porches! So I am a little late. Your big porch is wonderful and I especially love the swing. I'd be spending a lot ot time there if it were mine.
Hugs, Rhondi

Your porch is charming and beautiful! I love the black wicker and the pretty flower box above it. I envy you having the porch swing! Looks so fun! Even your ceiling is gorgeous!

Too bad the neighbors house is so sadly neglected, but I don't think I would hardly notice it while sitting on a porch so pretty!
