Which hope we have as an anchor
of the soul,
both sure and steadfast and
which enters into that within the veil.
Is your soul anchored in the word of the Lord?

|Just last month I discovered |
Bible Art Journaling
|My daughter Ashley had liked it on|
facebook and we had talked about it
in a phone conversation.
|I love to draw and to read the Bible|
So I have found that this is a really fun thing
for me to do.
|Every Week they give you a verse |
and an idea.
You do what you want with it.
|I am enjoying it so much,|
I think I will continue.
What do you think?
Do you think this is something you would
like to do?

|My computer has been down for almost|
It is difficult to post from the Kindle,
as I have the old Kindle that doesn't take
photos, and I had no way to transfer
from my camera to the kindle to the blog.
|I am happy to report that the computer is fixed|
now and the weather has turned to Spring,
and all is well with my world again!
|These are some photos taken at the Mountain House.|
The beautiful flowers that abound
are not the work of my hands.
They came with the house, but I am enjoying
them a lot.
|beautiful color every where I look.|
|just makes you want to stay out doors |
all the time.

|B spent the night and Don and he played chess.|
It is one of their favorite things to do.
(along with playing army and video games)
|B has memorized most of the pieces and how they move,|
but some of his moves are not legal.
| It looks like this game requires lots of |
strategy on B's part...the position of your
mouth helps you think.
|On the subject of snow...|
I had wanted to be there in a snowstorm.
We live mostly at the beach and have little chance
to see any snow.
|They had just had 6" of snow the week before|
we arrived, but it warmed up and most of it
was gone by the time we showed up.
We did see some flakes flying around in the air though.
Now, it's back to work and looking forward to

|Last week we went out of town to spend the week working |
on the Bearing Precious Seed scripture project.
|The stacks are taken to the staplers.|
|Don and I worked on the staplers.|
they are electric and easy to do.
We stapled about 720 (360 each) copies each day.
We worked Monday-Thursday.
From the staplers they go to the cutting machine and
they are packaged to be distributed.

an orange, Hershey kisses, candy canes, and some
tissues and a few other treats.
