I have a few Scripture doodles to share this week from my prayer journal:
|This song was playing the other morning while I was running |
and I just had to doodle it out!
Meanwhile, I've really been enjoying our snail mail group and through them discovered this fabulous new toy: a Xyron sticker maker!! You can turn just about anything into a sticker with these gadgets--I'm in love! I bought two: one small (1.5" width) and one medium (2.5") There's a larger one that makes stickers 5" wide (as well as laminates, makes magnets...) but I didn't see a need to make stickers that big. I've mostly been making pretty little bits to stick on my envelopes, dressing up labels....entirely too much fun!
And more celebrating this week here in New Bedford centers around the homecoming of the Charles W. Morgan! I was lucky enough to get the chance to row out to greet her when she arrived last Wednesday. It was wicked windy (uh oh, Yankee-speak is beginning to rub off on me!) but I'm so glad we went--seeing this magnificent ship out on the open water in full sail and being right next to her was breathtaking, to say the least!! It is an experience I'll never forget! We followed her in to port with dozens of other boats tagging along, the canons were shot off in welcome from Fort Phoenix and helicopters buzzed overhead taking pictures of the great celebration. It felt like living history! This past Saturday I rowed in the homecoming boat parade, which was such a blast, and this coming Saturday I'll be rowing in another race as the celebration wraps up before the Morgan heads back out on her journey along the coast...Fun, fun, fun! Birthdays, blogs, and boats--and fireworks!! Life is definitely good!!
