Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; Let the sea resound, and all that is in it; Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; Psalm 96:11-12
No guilt in life, no fear in death This is the power of Christ in me From life's first cry to final breath Jesus commands my destiny No power of hell, no scheme of man Can ever pluck me from His hand (from In Christ Alone song)
This was the first tulip, but it was gone the next day along with chewed up leaves. I'm suspecting the below partook of some nourishment.
Last fall, Kansas passed a law in which it is okay to carry a concealed weapon, but you have to take a class which is $150 in order to legally do so. This is along with a thorough background check. Now these stickers have been popping up in businesses all over including my place of employment. Since I work at home, I can have guns in my house...I just can't bring them to a meeting or if I come work in the office.
Wonder if they are allowed at the post office...Probably not.
We had to replace a sun tunnel (like a skylight) that the previous owners put in over 10 years ago. My husband patched it up when it first started leaking in the fall, but started leaking again along with another vent pipe.
I guess there are worse things to have to spend the money on...medical bills, for example.
My two brothers are up visiting my mom for spring break. They had an impromptu family reunion with 14 members on Sunday and decided to make kuchen (German coffee cake) yesterday. They said they'd save me some for when I come in April. Below is the email from my mom. Thought you might enjoy it, too.

What's the buzz around Wichita? A billboard from Gracepoint Church that states "Church Doesn't Suck". What do you think? To tell you the truth, I was more surprised at the pastor's name, Bryson Butts. Hope his sister's name isn't Bertha. A reporter was on the news last night interviewing people to see what they think. Two people said they were offended and wouldn't go to that church. When they interviewed the pastor, he said those aren't the people whom he's trying to reach. Hmmm... Good comeback.
Visit Yosemite or, oh heck, visit every national park in the U.S.
A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
