Tamar

Yes, as I was saying, I've been going back through my posts and doing a bit of tidying up. One post has been lost to me. Oh, yes, it's still there buried somewhere in a pile of oodles of posts and with some title that means less than zip. Searches yield nothing, but I am not going to waste my perfectly wonderful permission to feature this artist. Her name is Tamar Mogendorff and you can find her work here and her blog here. (And now you also know the reason behind the title of this post.)

My former post includes a swan and we collect swans at the Haven. I'd love to collect one of Tamar's. She is a sculptor, an artist, a delight. I love her work!

Well, do see for yourself...

*hi vee,
thanks for your lovely post and e-mail.
and thanks for letting me know.. before the google alert.. :)
best wishes,
tamar

Before the Google alert? Wow! I am comforted to know that artists and photographers and anyone who'd like to so do can set up an alert. Still, how thoughtful of Tamar to give me permission. It's much appreciated. And, when I find that buried post, I'll be sure to put a link back to this one.
Have a wonderful Friday evening and a relaxing Saturday!

Em's Boys



It was great fun to be interviewed by Lisa at Grandma's Briefs. She had a way of asking questions that made me think. If you want to see some better photos of my grands and even one of me with my recession hair facing forward and wearing my hubby's shirt (Leah, check it out!) please visit Lisa right *here.* (Don't let all of Granny's underwear on the line scare you!)

Please tell Lisa that I sent you, if you'd be so kind. Thanks a million!

Go, thou, and have a great day...

Hairafter

Have we been hair before?



As promised, this is the hairafter picture:

Striking difference, say what? Is this what I asked for? Not unless I asked to look like Little Lord Fauntleroy (hope that you can imagine that image), which I didn't.

As for turning around...hahahaha, silly gals!

Just a Note About My Use of Google Images

Having had it brought to my attention that sourcing "Google Images" is not sufficient, I am taking on the painstaking task of removing all images that have not been properly sourced. In some instances this means that entire posts are gone as they no longer make sense. Never has the "delete blog" button looked so tempting! Nevertheless, it is good to have one's feet placed to the flames even when it doesn't feel so good. I have learned my lesson. My blog will never be as lovely as it has been, but that's a minor problem given that some find my blogging behavior illegal, immoral, and unethical.

Comments are closed nor do I want email about this issue as my ego is still a bit bruised. Thank you.

Too Soon Again?

Last Easter, I started a little early and perhaps I've been thinking about Easter a little early this year as well. This year Easter will fall on April 4th, which is six weeks from yesterday. If one is thinking about projects and rounding up items, though, this really is the time to begin. These three things are tops on my list for 2010.

1. Easter eggs tie-dyed What a clever idea! I have a few of these things on hand without going to Goodwill.

2. Easter Garland at Creative Breathing. So adorable!

3. Martha Stewart-Easter Oh yes! I can see that I'm early when I beat Martha Stewart. She's beginning her Easter fling on March 1st.

Hmmm, wondering when I can start forcing the forsythia...

Not Good Enough?

In all my years as a Christian, I have never heard anyone say, "I've had it! I am sick to death of the love and grace of God. I'm sick of other Christians loving and accepting me. I'm giving up this Christian life." No I've never heard that. But I couldn't count the number of Christians I've known who have given up because of being under law, who have been broken by the crushing burden of trying to be good enough to earn God's acceptance, who have been mangled by the competition, the judging, and the demands to conform to some group's standards. "We'll accept you if you look like, walk like, talk like, and act like us." And the implication is always, "And God will, too." So what are we to do?

Jesus Christ came to free us from the burden of the law by calling us to a life united with His. We are beloved, accepted children of God, who have been called to His "banquet table" to experience Jesus Christ living in and through us every day. Abundant life is not "pie-in-the-sky" or nebulous theory. It is real, and it is ours for the taking if we will only believe. Let's not settle for anything less.
~Bob George

...for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:27–29

Besides the Bible itself, few books have challenged me and taught me as well as Classic Christianity by Bob George. I highly recommend it.
