Hi Sandie...Loved seeing Diane Rose's video again. I originally saw it on tv. What an inspiration she is. I wish that video could be shown in every single classroom, teen center, and nursing home throughout the United States of America.

Oh, if I could always remember to make the most of what God has given me, it would be wonderful.


Loved the flowers from the Chocolate place...lovely. Thanks so much for sharing. :) Susan

Sharon Kirby said...

Beautiful flowers! Did they make them in chocolate, too???

Loved how you changed the quote. Yes, in the right eye - and I think the only way to get the right eye, is to look at the right "I" - I AM, our Lord!

Lovely macros of the flowers; your new camera is working well!

What an amazing video! God actually put the talent in her hands, and she could feel it when he did! It is a wonderful thing to be able to know exactly why God put us here and what each of us is meant to do. In this way, she is more blessed than many others, who either don't know or don't care.

I loved that quilter video! Her attitude was fantastic and her quilts beautiful! I like how she talked about God and how she asked him to show her where her talents where. And I laughed out loud when she told the reporter he was a man who had eaten a lot of chicken dumplings! Thanks for sharing that!

beautiful floers from the Chocolate Bar!

Loved the video of Carrie...love her. Beautiful flowers...

I noticed my button is not showing on your blog... I had it remade because it was too big in the side bar...please go grab another one.

Debbie said...

The flowers are beautiful, and the blind quilter is amazing. I lack the talent to do anything like that with two *fairly* good eyes.

Granny Annie said...

Something this great seems to make us feel inadequate but every offering is great is God's sight and this type of gift should only help us appreciate our own talents and giving too. This woman has taken her limits and created limitless.

Knitty said...

What a wonderful story on the quilter! I am sending this to my friend who teaches quilting. Thanks!

Shanae Branham said...

I will have to try to see that the next time I'm at my sister's with her hi-speed internet. It sounds like it would be really good. These flowers are sure pretty. I LOVE brilliant colors like that. They would be pretty on a blouse with a black background in the material. That is something I would wear. I LOVE brilliant colors like that!
