Winter is gone and spring is here. God thought of everything. Seasons are amazing. Just when we get tired of winter, spring pops its little blooms everywhere.

Photo Album Project from a folder

Have fun making a photo album from a simple office folder. I used a letter size folder. You can also use legal size. Fold both sides to the middle for a perfect fit. Glue on paper and paint inside and outside of folder. Glue pictures on inside to flip. Sew on button and tie to close. Have fun and google this idea if you need better directions.

New Friends and BFF's

It is so important to have a best friend. I have a best friend and his name is Jesus. He is the best friend a girl could have.

I love meeting new people. I love meeting artistic and creative people. If you are creative in any way (children coloring always amaze me) I am drawn to you. I met a new friend yesterday. Her name is Vinnie Grace Holman. She is clearing land, God's land, and building steps, God's steps, and creating an awesome place here in Hendersonville, NC for God's people to worship, study, dance, pray, etc. She has built bridges to cross the stream that runs through 4 acres of God's land. She is planning to build a stage. I was encouraged, to say the least. I am going back. I want to know this Vinnie Grace Holman. I hope she reads this. I love you Vinnie and thank God for sending you my way.

Thank you, God, for sending us Jesus.

Good coat day. Picked up a black vintage cashmere coat a few weeks ago when I was out thrifting. It needed some major work. Popped in the dry cleaners and picked it up today. They mended it and cleaned it for me. Big is missing one button, but it is adorable. Promise. I also picked up my navy wool coat from the cleaners today that I bought just for my trip to Chicago many years ago. Wool and long and Calvin Klein. My Calvin Klein coat has been in need of buttons for over a year. I just kept losing buttons. Coats. Almost as good as purses! God Bless!

Snowing Again January 17, 2011

I Cannot Believe It Is Snowing Again. It snowed last weekend like 10 inches. It is snowing again....sleet and maybe a couple inches tonight. I love the snow. It is so pure and makes me happy. Simple. Snow.

My standard is the Bible

This morning's devotion was perfect for me. Blackaby really gets it. "An exalted view of God brings a clear view of sin and a realistic view of self. A diminished view of God brings a reduced concern for sin and an inflated view of self." (a quote from Henry T. Blackaby)

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2

What better way to get to know myself? Knowing God makes my vision as clear as it will ever be.
