Sorry about that. I just felt it was time to take some time ti think about some things. I did - I have a little plan (lol) and am ready to go.
I'll tell you that one of my favorite verses in the Bible is this one:
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted; . . . a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; . . . a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing. — Ecclesiastes 3:1-5
At times when I look at other people's blogs I wonder what am I doing here?
I'm not a great photographer (I would love to be).
I'm not a real good story teller (I would love to be).
I'm not too good at crafts either (I would love to be).
There are so many talented people - what can I do? What is my blog about anyway?
I love blogging and have found a lot of wonderful friends along the way.
I can be a friend.
I can try to 'brighten' you day with color.
I can share a 'little bit' of knowledge.
I can share beautiful pictures of animals and nature. Share some positive stories with you.
I can try to make you laugh.
I can try to give you some good thoughts to think about so we both can keep our spirits up. And yes I do need to keep mine up too! Trust me on that.
And I can pray for you.
That is me. That is who I am. I am going to keep on being Chatty. Simply Chatty,
(I also don't know why all my fonts are different today...)
I believe that nature and colors are God's gifts to us - to help make our lives happier. Can you imagine living in a world void of color and nature? What about peoples talents with their crafts - isn't that another gift?
I just look at what some people can do and ooh and awe.
I believe God wants us to be happy - of course it's not possible all the time - but after we take the time needed to do the work to go thru the hard times - we come out on the other side - and there is joy out here for us to see!
Does this make sense to you?
God does not want us to be unhappy - he wants us to be happy in spite of everything. I think that is the challenge in life.
How will you bring some springtime into someone's life today?
Something to think about...
Something to laugh about (at least it is funny to me because I can really relate!)
Now here is a little something to learn - I found this on Lois's Blog - Walking In Sunshine.
It is how to fold fitted sheets. Oh boy does that give me fits. I'm going to try this and thought I'd share it with you.
PS I'm behind in catching up with reading blogs. I'm sure hoping you'll understand if I just start from today. I'm looking forward to reading your blogs this week. Thank you!
