Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Why Go to Church?

A good friend from the power plant where I worked in WV sent this to me. I think it is a perfect message for today!

Why Go to Church?
A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and
complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.
"I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I
have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of
me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm
wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving
sermons at all."

This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor"
column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks
until someone wrote this clincher:

"I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has
cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot
recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals But I do
know this.. They all nourished me and gave me the strength I
needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals,
I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone
to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!"
When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something! Faith
sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the
impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual

"When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, "Jesus, could
you get that for me?"

Have a blessed day!

Kara Bear

Jessica sent me an e-mail today and said that they had rented a Care Bears movie for Kara to watch, but she calls them Kara Bears! Here's the journaling:
I have pet nicknames for my granddaughters. Hannah's is Hannah Banana and Kara's is Kara Bear. So when Kara wants to watch Care Bears she calls them Kara Bears. Isn't it great to have your own cartoon! So sweet just like my Kara Bear!

The New Blinkie Morphed Already!

I didn't like the jerkiness of the first blinkie so I tried again! This little jewel has 121 frames! It is still a tad jerky, but I give up on getting rid of it. I added a little butterfly to this one! Hope you like it!

A New Blinkie

OK, at the request of one of my daughters, I'm signing in to let you know that I AM still alive, lol! I'll tell you one thing.......this designing stuff and getting set up in stores is not the fun part of designing, for sure! But I guess most things in life have a bitter to go along with the sweet, huh?! :)

Well, today I created a blinkie for my designing blog, but I wanted to show you all, too. I think it still needs some work to make it flow more smoothly cuz' to me it is too jerky! But, I'll keep working on it and if I improve it, I'll show you!

Have a blessed day in the LORD's house tomorrow!

I'm Sick and Tired.....

Yes, I really am sick (the sore throat is not so bad today). My head is all stuffed up today and I have had a terrible headache to go along with it. And I have been coughing lots today! Which I am surprised didn't affect my already sore throat! Anyway, I took one nap today trying to get rid of the headache. It did ease up somewhat. But it is back with a vengence tonight and I am tired, so I am going to bed at the unheard of (for me) hour of 9:11!

Jessica Jones, I know you had a root canal today and haven't felt like it, I'm sure, but I did send you an e-mail with a preview of what I have done so far on the Danny Doodle Dragonfly kit I am working on.

So, anyway, that is why I'm sick and tired.......nite!
