Medicine for the Soul

Sometimes I wonder what the heck is wrong with me.

I live in a beautiful city, in a lovely home, and have plenty of everything that I could possibly hope for;  I have three wonderful sons, a loving husband, and enough family close by that they actually make me nervous when we are all together (there are around 20 of us);  I belong to a BIG GOD who takes great pains to care for me....even when I don't care for Him; and still there is a bitter little grouch living inside me that is just itching to get out and bitch at someone, anyone.  What in the world could I have to bitch about?

I need to get a life.

In keeping with that theme...get a life....I will now divert this tirade to some pretty pictures.

Rainbow Smitten Quilt

Nice, isn't it.

"The Button Tree"

I can feel my soul healing....ahhhh

FLQS- Birds Fly Over the Rainbow

These are some of the photos that I chose from Flickr to represent myself to my partner in the next DQS swap. 

That must be the grumpy troll inside of me....

Camellia japonica

This is what my God has to say to him......

Hello Nosey Parker...I love your pink nose.

Santa Fe Christmas-3

The sign ups are now closed for the swap...and the mamas are busy behind the scenes sorting out the bebes.

(wouldn't the colors in that picture look amazing in a quilt?)

Snow Dance - DQS8

windmill sun

Bring on the sun.....that grump is beginning to smile.

"Just Hangin' Out"

Much better.

I love the button tree Cindy. I think you should keep that last photo near you at all times, no-one could be grumpy for long looking at that girl :)

We all have days like that. One thing is for sure, I am more sure of God's grip on me, than I am of my grip on Him.
Happy Friday : )

I rather picture you as the girl in the last photo actually!

you have chosen some beautiful images to represent you, so i think that troll is fairly insignicant compared to the rest of you! you're a lovely lady, I'm sure your family loves you, we love you, and God certainly loves you - even when you're a grump, LOL X X X

Just as well we are all a "work in progress", isn't it? Our Father loves us just as we are -- good days and bad days. You've picked some great images to cheer yourself up -- I particularly love the last one!
