Rain has given way to sunshine, briefly. :)

I RAN out front to get a shot of the rain and sunshine at the same time. Rare-ish and pretty! Flubbing around on the manual settings got me all messed up and I was afraid the light would change so I switched to auto. :)

Ohhhh...I'm really glad I'm not a guy. I've decided I'm mostly indecisive when I have a big decision to make. And, since guys have to make lots of big ones I'm very happy being me, even though my indecisiveness frustrates me at times.

I'm borrowing Peter's laptop and I probably need to give it back to him soonish.

I guess that's it for now. :) Other than I wish the sun would come out. : ( Clouds and rain all the time. The sun peaked out last week and I promptly went outside to weed. It went in shortly after. If this is what it's like to live in the wet part of Washington state I'm going to pray I never have to live there. I really shouldn't say that. You always end up in the place you say you never will. :D I never want to live in a sunny place. There. :D Where will I end up now? :)

Have a lovely Tuesday people! :)

Carol is blogging again after only one day of silence. DO NOT PANIC. This strange and unusual behavior will only be temporary. : D My computer needs to visit the doctor so I'll be either seeing you later or seeing you later. : )

Greetings and salutations to my readership (which may include a grand total of 5) and to all lurkers and passersby people. I know I've been very laid back about 'texty' posts and this didn't go noticed by said friend Ellen who wants more text posts. Needless to say I'm going to make this a text post. I have yet to decide what I'm going to post about. None the less it will be a post with ONLY text. Ok. Maybe one picture for good measure, but no more.

I've managed to say just about nothing in that first paragraph, eh? :D

We're long back home from our extended winter tour. I miss the road. : ( I think I could go on trips and not get tired for a really long time. Or maybe get tired but not tire of traveling and ministering. I love doing what I do and using my my tiny share of talent which at times feels so unpolished for His glory. God can use a lump of clay! Isn't that awesome?! I miss the direction, too. Less clutter and more devoted time.

I've been studying up a little on photography, as you might have gathered from my recent offerings. I haven't been as serious about sticking my nose in the books as I should. I feel like I've grown but there is so much room for improvement. As one learns more one sees how much one don't know. :nods:

Other pursuits include keeping my onion patch weeded. I planted 141 onions. Vincent generously (: D) allowed me to plant them, on the condition I never would make him eat any. I'm most happy to oblige him. MORE FOR MEEEE! :D

:reprimands herself for yelling on her own blog:

*cough cough*

Where was I? Oh yes...onions! But I don't want to talk about onions any more.


God is so good. I say that over and over but it's still and will continue to be true in my life. As I grow old (no laughing now, I have grays! : P) I see more and more all that matters is what we do for HIM, the Author of Life, the Finisher of our faith, the One who reigns above in majesty supreme. Discouragement may come as we feel helpless, and weak, but we have One greater than discouragement and in our weakness HE is strong. I've been reading a great book recently about letting The Prince be in charge of your life, not just in some motions but really and truly BE in control. Check it out here. So far I highly recommend it to my female readership 18 and up.

Yours truly,

Hi everyone! :) I haven't really been blogging much but pictures as you can see by my last few posts. God is good and life is interesting!! Some day I'll have to work out a text blog. :) Until then though.....

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.
