ALL I NEED ARE SIMPLE LITTLE THINGS


I keep a magic Mood Lifter Rock on the windowsill in my kitchen.  I found it in our driveway.

When the rock is dry, it doesn't look like much.



But when I need to be reminded of the wonders of the world, I only have to make the rock wet to bring out the magic in it.  This is what I see:

ELF ADVENTURES OF 2016


Before our Elf went back to the North Pole, he enjoyed himself with some "safe" adventures (at first).

He got into the gift-wrap bows and decorated the entire kitchen.



He also rummaged in the cookie cutter box.


But he got a little out of hand when he discovered the bathroom.  At first, he just wanted a shower.


Then he got into things he shouldn't.


That is MY toothbrush, by the way.


And at the end, he was rather indiscreet, embarrassing us in front of our guests.  


He quickly went home the next day!

GOD'S LOVE FOR US IS A SOLID FOUNDATION


I made this poster for my older son, who is seeking avenues of employment and/or study.


I also made it for me.

TO MEDITATE UPON


A while back, my blogging friend who is now a friend "in person" told me her daughter (who attends a special ed school) used this phrase to witness to co-workers:

JESUS, He's a good God.

It has stuck with me for a long time, and for an even longer time, I've wished I could put it in a form where one could see it every day.  It's my first attempt at putting a quotation onto a block of wood.

I did it in just about the most old-fashioned way possible, and it turned out "okay."  I did not have a cricut machine nor any vinyl letters.  In the end, I couldn't even find my carbon paper!  I used a pencil to shade the backside of the letter page so I could trace them onto the wood, and then did the white painting free-hand.



My friend's package arrived just in time to cheer her while she recuperates from an unexpected accident! Now I need to make one for myself.
