After a month long hibernation, it's good to be (almost) back!
Hope you all had a great Christmas and that this New Year will find you in good health and bring you many joys along the way. For those times when joy is hard to find, I pray that we will all find strength from the One who can help us to make it through.
I've been doing a lot of reading recently (Oh, those wonderful Chapters Christmas gift cards!). And, wonders of wonder, I have found a friend who has pretty much the same tastes as me, and to whom I can pass on my books. (In fact SHE gave me a Chapters Gift Card for Christmas -- a wise investment on her part!).
Most amazing of all is that I have five, count them - five! delicious (I hope) books still waiting for me to read!
I generally won't buy a book unless it's been recommended to me, because books are too expensive these days to buy and not enjoy and/or not complete.
So, unlike my faithful visitor, Rabbit or Snafu Take Your Pick (his blog is here and it is well worth a visit -- you have never read book reviews quite like his), I am hopeless at book reviews, I do plan to tell you a little about the books I've recently read, find out if you have read them and see if you feel the same as I do about them.
I am a VERY picky reader, and there are a couple of books I have recently thrown in the trash -- from a series that started out well, but which has progressed downhill to....well, I am getting ahead of myself; I will save my comments for next time.
However, in the interest of time, I thought I would start the New Year with another "What Is It?"
Here it is:
It might be fairly easy, so I won't add any clues for now - and see how well you do!
Our lives are like a patchwork quilt; a work of art by a Master Designer. Life is made up of joys and sorrows; good times and bad; excitement and the daily grind. The underside of the 'quilt of life' seems to have little or no design, but the finished product is truly a masterpiece, and is the joy of the Creator.
Here is a place for me to share the 'patches' that make up my life. it may not look too great right now -- but I trust the One who is "working all things together for good" in it, will be pleased with the end result!
I am 72 years old. When I was a child, I was told by my art teacher in primary school that I would never be able to draw - so for 60 years I never tried!
Thanks to some great encouragement from my sister, a number of years ago, I actually tried - and discovered that I actually do have a bit of talent.
Art is a work of creation, that we inherited from our Creator. It is in our DNA in one form or another. I don't do as much as I would like to, but I will post my attempts, from time to time.
