ups and downs
smiles and frowns
cares and fears
joy and tears
mercy and grace
here on my face
God's flowing love
constant from above

As the sun peaks through the early haze
I realize my blessings of all my days.
Yes, I whine and complain like all the rest
But I know from where my blessings flow is the best.
God alone is my own personal supply
And to Him I will remain faithful till the day I die.
So start each day with a simple prayer of thanks;
Believe, have faith, trust and on that you can bank.

in your own space
don't be afraid of layers
journey through an open door

The light fades in the west.
The orange circle of sun recedes.
Birds go to roost and their song sleeps.
The busyness of the day diminishes and
People find rest and quiet for nightfall.
May this peace remain for the next day's tasks.

Through clouds and mist light enters a sleepy world.
A sliver of orange sun peaks through the clouds giving heat.
Birds waken in song.
People begin a busy day of tasks and responsibilities.
May this light shine on each and all.
May the song of the birds give encouragement.

Just got a great surprise in the mail. The newest edition of Somerset Holidays and Celebrations 2008 came and my witch I submitted last year was included finally. Here is a peek at the image and cover of the magazine. It's usually available at Books a Million and some craft stores. You can also order it online at http://www.stampington.com/html/holidays_celebrations_2008.html
Image is about 9X17 inches. Paperdoll mounted on foam core which was painted and then etched with words. I call it Key to the Coven (notice the key at the top) I don't really believe in witches and witchcraft as a Christian but I do believe women are a coven of great supporters and encouragers to one another.

Janice Rogers has posted a fun interview she did with me last week on her blog at Artella.

Yet not consumed.
Much as my very soul is burned away by the heat of life
Yet not consumed.
Brings two things to mind:
Quote from William Wordsworth:
Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, we grieve not, rather find strength in what reminds behind.
I will be away from the blog a couple days. Mountain retreat for 28th wedding anniversary. An attempt to regain strength and not be consumed any further.

Given through God abiding in our hearts
Sustained by the peace of His spirit
Shared through the love of the Son
