On the Solid Rock I Stand

 This reminds me of a hymn that Bill played for me (via Youtube) this morning.  On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand!  Our feet really are like helpless babies' feet, aren't they?

When I showed you the heart display I didn't tell you that these pretty beads are made by women in Uganda.  Aren't they bright and wonderful?
 Miss Bug had a fun birthday dinner.  We gave her roller blades and she skated around the kitchen, living room, and dining room with her skinny seven year old legs.  Look at her below!  A sweet babe sleeping on a picnic blanket with her tired Uncle Jeff!
 There are so many icebergs outside and sadly they will remain for a while.  Both Bill and I are ready for spring, but it won't be here for a very long time. So, we have fun with red, eat chocolate, treasure the ones we dearly love, and hunker down for the remainder of winter.
Here is a red drink for you.  YOU are loved.

Thank you for the lovely drink! Now you have me singing "On Christ the solid rock I stand all other ground is sifting sand...
Have a good day!

That's a good song for times when decisions have to be made and stood by! The Ugandan beads are very pretty, I wonder how they were made - paper mache? Betty

I also was wondering what those pretty beads are made of.

My daughter posted a video on FB this week. Someone called Sufijan Stevens singing Come Thou Fount of every Blessing. It was very different but sweet. Love those old hymns.

The beads are lovely, the baby is sweet and the red drink evokes thoughts of warmer, nicer, sunnier weather!

I was just thinking this morning how winter is dragging by. My goodness it has been a cold one. Love the red drink. Thanks.

I love little feet, just precious and yes, on the solid rock we stand. All your colors are always so enjoyable, they make me happy. Have a good weekend, we are cold here also.

What a sweet post. I smile when I see your header. It reminds me a little of the dress pattern...cute! Those baby feet are precious!

Julia said...

Oh I love that fat little foot and sleeping baby with daddy. Just too cute. I alway worry about toxic cadmium in red glaze or paint since I was a ceramist years ago but I would say your colorful beads are brights and pretty.
Happy February.
Hugs,

Very sweet post today. I love that picture of baby feet and the sleeping babies at at the picnic.
Lots of snow huh? Does that make you sad or happy?
I hope your day is very nice. I should get that 30 day book you had on your blog the other day. I have always wanted something like that for Lent. I always like the things you talk about.
Happy Friday!

Hello my dear! Love the red drink and glass. More snow and ice here, so I am being domestic. Baking and cleaning. I find this the perfect time to Spring clean. I am stuck in the house anyway...LOL Have a great weekend! Go Broncos! Kit
