Just Another Week in Paradise

“Take care to keep open house: Because in this way some have had angels as their guests, without being conscious of it” ~Hebrews 13:2 I’ve been meaning to share with you a chair that I saw a few weeks ago. It seems as if I’m often finding chairs that call out to me. This particular one came home with me that day.

Later, when I was working on getting my Master’s Degree in Education, I was able to sneak in an art class. Yippee!!! I LOVED that too! And, then the years just flew by. Now, I have time to dabble in these two activities once again. I try and create something everyday. I enjoy photography, even though I mostly wing everything. I don’t have any … Read the full blog post
