771. The flower has opened, has been in the sun, and is unafraid. ~Paula Cole

How does the Meadow flower its bloom unfold?
Because the lovely little flower is free
down to its root, and in that freedom bold.
~William Wordsworth


Today is your day to
paint life in bold colors,


set today’s rhythm with
your heart-drum,


walk today’s march
with courage.


Create today as your
celebration of life.
~Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Let us therefore come boldly unto God’s throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.  ~Hebrews 4:16   ✝

    • Why thank you, missy. Oh heck, yeh, I’m excited and get moreso every day. Also worried that I’m forgetting to have everything done and taken care of here before we go. My youngest sister is coming Wednesday to find out what she needs to do and maybe she can help me make sure I’ve got everything covered. I sure hope you have a better week coming up. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤
