I am so thankful for this place of mine. a place to share myself, my family, and my creations with others. this little place has brought to the surface things about myself that are to be celebrated and things that are to be worked on. opening up has, at times, been difficult for me. will others want to read what I write? what will others think? will I be accepted? will I be rejected? all those inferiority concerns come to the surface. I'll admit to having blog envy of those more popular blogs with lots and lots of loyal commenters. sometimes I feel like I'm back in high school looking in from the outside. but then I remember that I was protected from so many temptations and mistakes by having a group of friends on the outside of popular. and so I think God is protecting me here too. I have no pressure to put something out there that has to be accepted or copied. I have a small group of readers who love and support my efforts. I wouldn't trade them for tons of readers. so I'll just continue sharing me and pray that I honor Him in the process.
I THANK all of you who read and all of you who comment regularly! I LOVE hearing from you. over the next few weeks, I'll be updating my space with a few new verses, a few new blogs that are a blessing to me, and maybe a little more focus. until then, I've got a few goodies to give away. this picture shows the items I've boxed up to send to a blessed commenter. so go ahead, leave a comment, and little guy will pick the winner from a basket (no random integer number programs needed here).

black sensations angel hair- because it's soo soft!
