Loving God

Oh, my goodness.   Remember that funny little quip from Alice in Wonderland, "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get?"  That is so me right now.  I'm consistently running 2 days to a week or MORE behind!  Life is wonderfully full right now.  I recently started homeschooling my two new grandsons who arrived from the Philippines only 3 weeks ago. Oh, they are sweet and this is such a blessing to me.  At 8 and 10 they are the perfect teachable age for me, and I'm loving every minute of it.  After a career of teaching and school administration I feel like I can teach in my sleep.  Trouble is my body won't keep up with my enthusiasm!  We start each morning with Bible study...the ONLY place to start in my mind.  We give God the first and best part of our day.  And we are beginning at the beginning...creation!  So many wonderful things to learn.  But I hope their hearts will grasp primarily, the simple truth of our scripture challenge at Word Art Wednesday this week.  If I can invite them to love God, to trust Him and His Word, then I will feel like my mission in this endeavor has been accomplished.  I hope we learn lots of English, math, science, etc. too.  But learning to trust God is our priority.
I must say, since deciding to use up my plentiful stash (and that will take a long while), I've had so much fun mixing and matching what I have on hand.  I have so many delightful paper pads and embellishments, and had all but quit using them while promoting my own products through my digi business.  God has simply taken every single sad thought about closing my business and filled my days and my heart with wonderful delights.  I DO love my God and my heart's desire is to love Him more.

I think rather than commenting or filling this post with all my thoughts, I'll just leave you with these photos and encourage you to create from your own stash, then share with us at Word Art Wednesday. 

Thank you so much for blessing my day with YOU!
