I've been blessed and encouraged over and over by this blog. the images are rich and meaningful. the words thought-provoking and full. i haven't read her book, one thousand gifts (yet), but have been writing down a thankful list since may (as she encourages her readers to do. basically, you just write down everything you're thankful for each day or whenever you remember.) this weekend, i read over that list and it took my breath away--all the tiny and big ways that God has provided and heard this past year built up to be a mountain of blessings. (and a huge reminder that he is here and working as i come to the end of this job assignment!)

What a lovely little blog about drawing! I've read a few posts and am bookmarking this one to go back to in the future. For the past couple of weeks, I've been doing an art lesson a day out of my never-used (ahem) Drawing from the Right Side of the Brain workbook. It has been an interesting process as I usually draw quickly and admittedly, don't don't take the time to really see an object. It has also been interesting seeing my husband's sketching process which is very different from my own.

it has been quiet here on the blog as i've been packing our trailer at work for the last two weeks and have come home exhausted every night. goodness, who knew packing is so tiring? (okay, that's a rhetorical question) anywho, the packing is done, the move has mostly happened and i am now at home having rested after having some coffee and some delicious fruit and chocolate. much, much better. even the weather has cooperated and given us a cool, delicious evening.
so happy friday, everyone...
i'll be back soon.
