write the vision

Then the Lord answered me, “Write the vision. Make it clear on tablets so that anyone can read it quickly. The vision will still happen at the appointed time. It hurries toward its goal. It won’t be a lie. If it’s delayed, wait for it. It will certainly happen. It won’t be late. Habakkuk 2:2-3…

storybook friends

After the tees…

More rain today.  Still house bound and getting bored.  I’m thinking we need a project.  One of my favorites is papier-mâché, (A substance made from paper pulp that can be molded when wet and painted when dry.)  If you’ve never tried it, I can highly recommend it for good…messy…fun.  Sure to turn those “I’m bored!”…
