A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

4th of July and Independence for Us All

We slid right into a parking lot for fireworks with our children and grandchildren after a wonderful cookout. The fireworks were incredible. Downtown was so packed with vehicles that we wondered how we ever slipped in between and slid right into that parking spot. Then, just as swiftly as we entered the lot, we exited. It took us just a few minutes to get onto the main road to our homes after a fabulous grand finale!

On another note: In remembrance of our fore-fathers, we celebrate our independence and our country's Christian heritage. Such a touchy subject! I hope that I will not insult my followers as I express my religious views, but I have something to say:

It's difficult for me to think that so many people would have "In God We Trust" and "...one nation, under God" stricken from our currency and our Pledge of Allegiance. Our "independence", which we love to party around on the 4th, is slowly being taken from us. And, so, as George Washington has written, numerous times, in his life-long journal, we need to thank our God for the blessings He has bestowed upon our country. May we never forget. May we never cease to appreciate. May we ever thank Him.

The fact that so much negativity exists in America today should never cause us to dispel the hopefulness we tuck away, deep in our minds and hearts.
