"Solomon in all his glory...

...was not arrayed like one of these." Luke 12:27. God's beauty is all around us--and so breathtaking in its color and simplicity. I weeded out a flower garden down by our garage a couple days ago. That is where these lilies live. Just about every time I see a lily (we have some in several places on our property), I think of the above verse. It is a quote of something Jesus said while here on earth..."Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." For those who do now know, Solomon was the wisest and richest king in Bible times. He was King David's son.

My Camera is Back, and So Am I

Here is the first picture I took after getting my new camera battery. I was "watching" some of my kids at the pool of a friend. I realized that I couldn't use my laptop to do the paper work (hence the laptop and stack of receipts on the picnic table). We are switching over our budget-keeping system since my computer crashed a month or so ago. I like to see where our money went every month.

Other items on the table are so me...I drink a Benefiber stick packet every day. The keys to my trusty 15-passenger van. My iPod Touch (don't leave home without it), the mail of the day stuck in my for free Kashi Bars, samples of same, coupons for more... The odd items are the beach towel and the sunscreen. Yes, the desire to be a good mom came over me, and I joined the 3 children in the pool. They seemed to enjoy that.

So good to have my camera in use again. I'll be posting more frequently, I can feel it in my bones!
