Farewell

Watching as you leave…
August, you brought lots of sunshine,
Must I say goodbye?
I am not looking forward
To those Fall days
Of less sun and shorter days
That September brings.
Oh, that Summertime would linger
Instead of running away.

Are You Ready?

The time is very near

Christ is returning soon

You who have ears please hear

The time is very near

Soon He will appear

Maybe morning, night or noon

The time is very near

Christ is returning soon

And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. Revelation 22:12

Silent Sententials

Still standing

In memory, years later

Syllable Lune

August 26, 1920 Women’s Rights To Vote, 19th Amendment, went into effect after many years of campaigning by Women’s Sufferage groups, especially Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, Katherine Morey, and many others who fought and suffered so valiantly for this.

So thankful to all those women who gave of their time, effort and sufferings to win us women today the right to vote!

Let’s not let them down! Let’s not let their efforts be wasted or done in vain. Let’s be sure to vote!!

Paper and Plastic

Paper straw

Saving our ocean.

Plastic lid,

Plastic cup,

Items environmentally

Not compatible.

I went to lunch at a fast food place today, which I rarely do as I don’t like fast food but my companions chose our lunch place so I went with it.

I asked for a cup of water to drink and was served it in a plastic cup with plastic lid.

I asked for a straw and was given a paper wrapped paper straw.

 

I really dislike paper straws, they taste awful to me, however I can support their use in an attempt to save the environment, however I do not understand the purpose of providing paper straws in plastic cups with plastic lids, if seems to defeat the whole purpose.

Maybe choosing to

Step out of your comfort zone

Will bring happiness

My grand-daughter is a very talented artist in acrylic painting and charcoal drawing, especially in doing portraits.

Yesterday when we got together to do our crafting project she surprised me by saying” I want to try something different”

And so she did! She stepped out of her comfort zone and created something “Wonderful” in mixed media paper collage. 😊

Creating art with grand-daughter

Even though outside it was another cloudy, chilly, rainy day, inside my craft room it was sunny, warm and cheerful!

My grand-daughter came over this afternoon to participate in another art collaboration project with me and we had so much fun sharing ideas, chatting and creating. She inspired me, as I did her and we both ended up with projects we were really happy with!

Fun day!
