Copyright Infringement

I am sad to say that I had to change my beautiful banner due to the fact of copyright infringement. I found it one day while "surfing" the internet and just loved it. While surfing a few days later, I found the rightful owner of the photo and felt the need to do the right thing and ask permission to use it. The owner was very gracious and thanked me for asking, but I am sad to report she could not grant me permission as it is pending magazine publishing. *sigh*

I am really sad about it because I felt the photo was so "me", :)
but this has forced my hand........

I have thought about taking pics of my own things and using it for my banner for a while now, but haven't gotten around to it. I haven't been too confident in this area, thus giving me an excuse not to try. Sometimes we have to be forced out of our comfort zone. I find this true in all areas of my life. Yes, even in my walk with the Lord. It is so easy to get comfortable right. where. I. am. Definitely not what God intends for us. He wants us OUT there turning the world upside down for HIM! And all the while we are sitting around thinking we are not capable of such a feat even after all HE has equipped us with. He wants us to answer the call.Lord, forgive me for letting you down.

Well, now you have very own things and you know, I kinda like 'em!

He Lives!!

I want to share some pics of our outdoor Easter drama. I wished I would have taken more, but I was too busy. We worked very hard in a short period of time to pull this off. Hope you enjoy.

We tried something a little different this year by having "Jesus" walk with a crowd and explain his life story at each scene starting with his birth.

Jesus with the children.

Jesus with the woman at the well.

Here is Jesus breaking the bread and yes, I know, we had a very tallll Jesus.

This is where Jesus was taken before Pilate and then led away.

We have Jesus portrayed in lovely garments, but we know this is not how it was at all.

Jesus comforting Mary and John.

I think I posted a couple of duplicates, but it so aggravating to try and fix it so.......bear with me here... *smile*

Refrigerator Tag

Beth tagged me with a refrigerator tag a couple of weeks ago. I had planned to do this sooner and had almost forgotten about it. As you can see, my fridge is loaded with pictures of my children, school papers, menus, and outdated calendar, recipes, and plenty of other things that need to be taken down. I didn't realize how messy it looked until I had committed to sharing my pics. So, ahem......I am embarrassed.....especially after viewing my friend's fridge's which are so much neater.
