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

Today is mom's birthday.  She would've been 79.  Miss her so much!  Hard to believe that she has been gone for 7 1/2 years.  The Lord was merciful when He took her on home to heaven. 

Today's Project Life 365 prompt is RED!  RED is my favorite color!  So this one was fairly easy!  Here I am sitting in "my" chair in the dining/living room.  I usually don't do much work on my laptop here at the house.  I bought it specifically for working on in the car while traveling.  But, while I was sick last week, this is where I sat (when I wasn't sleeping in bed) during the day and I got used to it!  The red housecoat I am wearing was a gift from Tim's mom for Christmas last year.  It is soooooooo snuggly cozy and soft!  LOVE it!
Speaking of sickness, pray for Tim.  His throat was doing really well during this cold.....til Sunday.  During the sermon Sunday evening, he could tell his throat was getting sorer.  By the next morning, he could hardly talk.  He has been coughing, too.  So, you know that aggravates it.  Anyway, he will not be able to preach tomorrow night and has someone ready to take over.

Remember on Sunday I mentioned I was working on a special page in my art journal?    I started it later that night before going to bed.  I added molding paste for snow on the tree and under the word "delightful" so it kept me from finishing it until that dried.  After it dried, I decided I needed to touch it up with white acrylic paint.  I did the words tonight with various stencils I got at Dollar Tree many, many years ago!  I love this photo of Kara.  She has such a DELIGHTFUL smile!

I finished up 3 baby gifts this week.  I'll post pictures of those Sunday evening, if I don't forget.  I don't want to do it until after we give the shower gifts to the mommy-to-be on Sunday.  I hand-made a baby card for her, too, so I'll show you pictures of that.

OK, I think I'll do some reading before going to bed.

I'm sorry Tim is doing worse! I told Michael to pray for him, he said, "every time he gets sick it goes straight to his throat." I know how that feels - my tonsils were almost removed a few years ago because I couldn't shake the infection. I'm praying he heals quickly!

I LOVE the art project!!!! You are so talented. Of course, your beautiful photo helped. ;-)
