Wayside Sacrament

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful;

for beauty is God's handwriting...a wayside sacrament.

Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower,

and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.

I'm breaking a major rule with the above quote- It's not from me but from a blog I lit upon earlier this week and it spoke to my heart, so I copied it, but neglected the author- BAD MARY!

It's spring in North Carolina- the Bradford pears are in bloom everywhere, and daffodils and grape hyacinths.. the azaleas and dogwoods are still to come. And the "wayside sacrament" of God's graces and blessings are everywhere. It makes you stop and take notice! I love it.

I may be the last person in the world to discover Pandora, but I have had so much fun with this site this week! It makes me miss it when I have to go to work and can't have it on in the background. For the uninitiated, it's an online radio- but you're the music director- you put your favorites in, and voila! out comes lots of music like your favorites! it reminds me of Shelfari- which, if you haven't checked it out- you should- is a service that keeps track of what you've read, are reading, want to read- AND links you up with other people who read the same kind of books. I love it- I have made some really good friends, plus I have someone to talk about my current fave. It's also a great place to research something to read when you're in a dry period ,something that hasn't happened to me since I joined. Gotta love it!

It's spring, and this spring that means weddings and babies- so I'm having fun with baby hats and baby dresses and baby booties- oh and bibs! My godson is having a baby so I'm taking advantage of my status and spoiling this little one, (yeah- I know- I'm spoiling myself, too!)

Still to come are wedding present ideas... may cop out on this and go with Crate and Barrel. :)
