Scripture pictures and frames

Over the past few years, we have played with adding Scripture to pictures we’ve taken as we “walk”.ย  Here is a post about the frames we made from our old pickets as 2014 Christmas gifts, and a link to a new page on this blog that will house the pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

Since I didn’t have enough pockets for each frame, some got envelopes instead. ๐Ÿ™‚

LOOK ON THE SUNNY SIDE by Helen Steiner Rice

This is my favorite poem. My fondness for writing rhyming poems has surely been inspired by the works of Helen Steiner Rice. ๐Ÿ™‚

As I was washing my one millionth dish today & feeling a bit “blah”, I saw this laminated magnet hanging on the side of my fridge that I had made several years ago. It made me smile – just what I needed! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thought I should add it to my “scrapbook”… ๐Ÿ™‚

“Thorn” removal…

Whew.ย  What a week.ย  Yes, the picture in the poem is actually Mike’s thumb.ย  Part of the reason this poem was inspired was because of watching him deal with this nasty splinter.ย  Another reason was watching Michael deal with food poisoning the past couple of days.ย  As a parent, there’s nothing worse than watching your child suffer.ย  Another thorn, another thorn…

Mike’s thorn is dissipating, but not removed.ย  Michael’s on the road to recovery – but may be gun-shy of a certain restaurant’s sandwiches, lol! ๐Ÿ™‚
