Wednesday



This is very cool.  It is amazing what can be done on the computer these days.

See your house in a snow globe.  Open the website below, put in your address and click on “Shake.”
Thank you Linda at A La Carte


NOW ONLY OPEN THIS IS YOU WANT YOUR HAPPINESS IN PINK!


Thank you Susan at Writing Straight From the Heart.



“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”

One of my most favorite writer's in my life is - C.S. Lewis - and he said that.  And I believe what he says - in fact I'm banking my whole life on that.

Love the quote, and oh, I'm banking on it too, as my 50th birthday approaches closer and closer. I think I hated my 40th, but while I STILL don't LOVE the idea of entering my fifties, I've at least progressed to mixed feelings now! (0; Have a great day! ((hugs)) ~tina

Debbie said...

Very cool! I'm sitting in a public place right now so I typed someone else's address to see it. Why, I do not know. LOL

Ginny said...

What happened to your baby elephant videos? Ella is coming over and I can't find them anywhere. Did you take them off? Why?

It's been a good Wednesday morning here. I got to visit with my newest little granddaughter. The sun came out and even though it's chilly it is a great day! Hope your Wednesday is a wonderful one!

EM Illustrator said...

Happy Wednesday to you my friend. Just home from work here, it's cold outside brrrr. Warming to come in here :) Big hugs x

Paula said...

The globe thing is sooo neat. Thanks, Paula

BelovedBomber said...

love the horse pic and also the quote from Mr. Lewis. Thanks for sharing. My google map pic in the globe made us laugh, but it is attached to good cause. Many blessings! Shana

Michaele said...

That is a quote worth pondering...Thanks for the pink!

Jim said...

The decorations and the horse are neat, Sandie.

I like C.S. Lewis but haven't read nearly enough of his books. Have you read the Screwtape Letters? It is one you can pick up whenever you want a pick-me-up little lecture.

Gloria Hood said...

I got the address thingy in an e-mail yesterday and love it!

Annmarie Pipa said...

fun to see our house in the globe!!!
c.s. lewis has amazing insight...

Crystal Mary said...

All those girls look so beautiful and fresh. Loved their dresses and shoes.All the onlookers were dressed in warm clothes in comparison. AND... C. S. Lewis was a wise man wasn't he... So good. xxx

Ms. A said...

Pretty mall.

My cousin sent me that snow globe thingy the other day... pretty neat!

Miss Debbie said...

Yes... I believe the best is yet to come!

That corgi :) said...

I like the snow globe with the donation to help the homeless. I too agree with what C.S. Lewis said. I don't think we can even imagine the things God has ahead of us in heaven (and for the rest of our lives) but it is always good if he is in control!

betty

Nancy Claeys said...

Might be the only snow we see in that snow globe! I might have to try that. :)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I loved all of it, Sandy, and I totally agree with CS Leiws.

Years ago, when I was young and homesick, I was praying and telling the Lord (like Dorothy), "I want to go home, God, I want to go home." We were away from our families, and I missed them terribly. Then, very quietly, the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart and said, "Home is not behind, Sheila, home is ahead!" I will never forget that moment. It made me more determined than ever to "press on toward the prize in Christ Jesus" as Paul says. I might have mentioned this to you already, but that quote really drove this home again.

XO,

Sheila

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I believe...cute.

forgetmenot said...

I take lots of pics to get a good one many times! Someone sent me "your house in a snow globe " too--I haven't done it yet. I love the quote, and I do so hope it is true!!!! Loved scrolling through several of your posts--I am SO BEHIND on getting around to others' blogs these days. I always appreciate your "visits" and your nice comments. Mickie :)

SweetMarie said...

Thanks for the snow globe trick! This is the only time I've ever or will ever see my house in snow. :) Love the quote!
did you have dogs on here earlier??

Annie said...

I first saw the snowglobe on facebook last week. It was so much fun to play. I wondered if the picture would change this time. Nope. But it was fun again, nevertheless.

Dar said...

You sure know how to put me in the Christmas spirit. Christmas in Pink was fantastic. How could anyone not love it.

CS Lewis - a wise man.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I need to be reminded of that thought by C.S. Lewis. ;-)

I love that snow globe! ;-)

Dee said...

C.S. Lewis is very wise indeed. I will give the snow globe a try. I live in a apartment,,,it may be interesting. LOL Also want to say I will ask Sue about the jeans when I talk to her.:)

Grandma Bonnie said...

I just loved the snow globe thing.

ocmist said...

I really like C.S. Lewis, too, and that is a great reminder. I hope to try to snow globe thing. Don't know if Google Earth has been out so far this way, though :)

I hope to get a chance to have Robert send you an email with the vid he made to show at our church for Christmas. He would have to send it from the church's high speed internet, though. I'll try to email you about it soon.

Chicken Wrangler said...

Love the snow globe - sent that link to my friends!!! Great post!

Mevely317 said...

Oh Sandie, I just love the snowglobe effect!

Without fail, each November I grow wistful remembering the carefree, simpler holidays of my youth. So yes, it was THAT address I entered.... and smiled recalling “the house that built me.” :)
