On this cold wintery afternoon I have been doing some scrapbooking in my craft room...my two Thanksgiving pages inbetween ironing and decorating for Christmas. Using last years Mary E. calendar for some of it and lots of scrapbooking papers etc. I love the way time just stops for me when I begin to compare color against color. Its very relaxing and a privilege to be home with the time to hmmm....while some would say 'waste' I will choose to say, enjoy! I want to post more pictures of the house after I get finished with everything. The camera battery is low and just shut itself off! The rechargable batteries used to last so much longer....and now not long enough to suit me. I received a very very special hankie from ms*robyn and I love it. Thankyou...thankyou!! Please look for an e-mail from me ms*robyn. This is such a cold day, I'd love to just read the hours away or cross-stitch while watching/listening to a favorite movie like Little Women but I know I can't do that. Too many other things to do. In January it will be ok to do that....won't it? Leaving you with a quote from Helen Keller.."Many persons have a wrong idea about what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratifications, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose." God says..."Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding....v.15..She is more precious than rubies; and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her." Proverbs 3:13,15. Oh to have this mindset...and the maturity and peace to the mind wisdom can give us...may God help me to want what he wants me to have as I walk along this pilgrim journey.
