John Wayne

I wonder what John Wayne would say to Americas leaders if he were alive. I think he would be kicking up some dust. I think it might be a different world. I wish the men in the white hats, that had integrity, would ride in and save the day. We need a good cowboy, a good American, to lead, to hold accountability high, someone who knows how to be a man and take care of business. To do the right thing for the good of the people in this country and our democracy. A leader with America in his blood, in his DNA, in his heart. I can dream all I want for a good few men, when the reality is,,,,, it is up to each of "us"...wishing and waiting for someone else to do it won't get the job done. It's going to take True Grit....got any???

Clouds and Eagles

In Gods Hands
This photo "is" enhanced, passed around the internet as real, but I still like it.
Discernment is my word of the day.

Watching the clouds is a favorite pass time of ours, finding shapes in them that look like something. Yesterday I saw a man reading a book in the clouds... Alas no camera...sigh...

Look up today!





Isaih 40:31
But those who wait on the Lord will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary.They will walk and not faint.

Balance


Balance is my goal, and it's difficulty is growing. I cannot in good conscience have a blog that is all about beauty alone, for me that would be out of balance. One of my "best escapes", from the unpleasant things of life are the creative moments in "doing art/crafts".
These tags were a wonderful escape.


There is a serious imbalance in the land, that is why 9-11 happened.
May God Have Mercy On Us.


Where were you? Have you forgotten? On 9-11 I was watching TV in bed working on getting up. Then I saw it, and watched the whole dreadful thing transpire. I cried, I prayed, I had phone calls, I got royally pissed off, filled with anger, and fear, that was so foreign to me.
This day truly changed America.


We no longer can just live in the land of "pretty" as it will disappear if we ignore the "ugly".
Responsibility to keep our freedom is to see that our leaders hold the constitution high, and God laws even higher, it is up to you and I to hold them accountable. To pray for them too.


I used to live in La-La land of Pretty, doing my craft as a business, not caring for what our leaders were doing. I just figured somebody else would take care of things, and they didn't. It was "all about me". Not any longer. My voice counts. The constitution does not run by itself. If I don't fight for our democracy, and a Christian country the rest of my days, then I am truly out of Balance.

The Lift of A Gift


It was a good day for a Lift,,a Gift, a Surprise! I love it when a gift comes unexpectedly. Shelley Noble is such an amazing artist, a real angel. Thank you so much Shelley, I just love it all to pieces. I love that the necklace lays just where I want it to, how did you know. You made my day dear friend.

She also tells how she makes them at http://notesfromhalfland.blogspot.com/
I am going to grow these seeds in the spring, and I am sure there will be more surprises pop up!
How Perfect!

Shelley is the creator of Halfland, a wonderful world, a stop motion animation film in the process. The amazing miniatures, the techniques she teaches,,,,if she needs something she just finds a way to make it, then she shares all. You may get lost in her world when you visit,,,but you will enjoy the ride, I promise.
