Peace is a gift given by our Shepherd. I'm peacefully blessed.
We see Him in and around our gardens. I have The Private World of Tasha Tudor and Tasha Tudor's Garden sitting on my old bookcase right now. Tasha's simplicity was so refreshing.
Sweet and happy Susan Branch's artwork resonates with so many women. Her blog is on my blog roll below. When I see how many people comment on her posts, it makes me happy to know that the comfort she shares appeals to kindred spirits all over. That's good.
My good friend Gumbo Lily (also on the blog roll) is lambing now. Do you like this "puddle of lambs" she shared a few seasons ago? Lambs mean Easter. Ah, Easter. LOVE.
Susan Branch's new book is available for presale on her site. She took a beautiful trip to England last summer. I can't wait to get my hands on the book and read all the Beatrix Potter parts.
Last, I've been blessed beyond measure by In My Father's House by one of my heroines, Corrie ten Boom. Her family and her own walk with Jesus are pure music. Do you know her?
This summer Bill and I are going to Amsterdam and Munich. When we are in Amsterdam we will take the bus or train to Harlem where Corrie grew up. I want to be ready.
The kids at school gave me a lot of chocolate. So nice. I told them that having a boyfriend or girlfriend is fleeting, but knowing that people care about them is good truth. They liked hearing that. They are very dear.
My Valentine was his usual attentive and loving self. I like him and love him.
I like you. Thank you for popping in and allowing me to be a part of your blog reading. I do appreciate it very much.
Yay for the American Presidents! I get Monday off! Yahoo!
