the following link: Random Journal Day Link Up - 3.
Meanwhile, Today I selected an entry from my most nondescript journal in my collection. I wanted to post a picture of it, but it is just a plain brown notebook, in which I added pages as needed. The cover was so ugly, I decided to try and show it off to its best advantage...here's a few shots of it:
|Now you have to admit that these pictures|
do make this journal look a lot more interesting!
Now if the story is anywhere near as interesting as the picture,
this might be worth reading!
P.S. Looking back at the time this journal entry was written, I can say that God did have some surprises in store for us. Within three months we were called to another church in the suburbs of Detroit, MI., which was quite an adventure in itself - for another story. I did, however, manage to accomplish a few of my goals before moving... I refinished the antique vanity that I had wanted to restore...and here is a picture of the finished product along with my Grandmother's antique dresser. (I didn't refinish the dresser...that was already done by my brother). (Notice the gold carpet...this was the 80's, remember?) I did plant the tulips in my yard, but I never got to see them grow and bloom. I wonder if they are still there? I don't remember about the applesauce, bread and zucchini bread...but I still like that idea for a fall project. I will never catch up on correspondence...but now we have email and facebook, so that is my "correspondence" these days. (and this blog). I know I taught a Ladies' Bible Study, but I don't remember another one at that particular time, and I did help with the youth until we left that church 3 months later. Neighbors? Well, we moved...what can I say? But, I do still keep in touch with many of the ladies from that Bible Study on facebook..which was a surprise blessing a couple of years ago! And I am STILL wanting to write that book...someday...Lord willing!
