I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee...Psalm 9:verses 1 and 2a

I love this charming box of 'artwork' postcards....complete with a bit about each one on the mailing side.
Yes, 33 cents is what the postage is for a postcard but/and aren't the apples the perfect sweet thing to adhere to the dear drawings of Beatrix Potter? I'm convinced of it =)
Art 'stuff' I really...really...really like! I am going to start the New Year by keeping the 3x5 cards in a booklet form...collage album, you might say. Several journal entries a week with collage art, that should be enjoyable. I did this once for a few months and loved the doing of it and the archive of daily life. Rich. Inexpensive and thoroughly enjoyable to take 10 minutes or so just to reflect on things. Paste a cartoon that makes you laugh....or glue stick bits of special paper with a quote or picture. A bit of poetry that makes you catch your breath and reflect on God....so many little gems and joys that get passed over.
This was one of last year's favorite gifts and what we gave our Sunday School children this year. Walmart's snow-globe with an insert for your own photos! Love it. Very special and around $5. Well, I am hoping to knit a while today. My second bout with a head-cold virus left me yesterday and I was happy to see it go away. Wishing each of you a blessed New Year and a heart of joy....in Jesus.
But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.
Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing; for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy."
