ME time

last week was my b-day and my hubby brought me the most beautiful, vibrant flowers. i so loved the colors of some of them.  the yellows popped and there was a purple that captured my heart.

Mary had a tutorial on how she creates her journals on her blog.  here is my first attempt at a similar page. i really enjoyed Capture the Day. i  am not close to finishing this page.

and here is my Cry Out To God page, this was so much fun. challenge from DLP using receipts. after i put them on the left side i covered them all over with clear Scotch shipping tape  with butterflies, dragonflies and insects.  love this!! of course this week is not finished yet and is yet to be determined.

the book i decided on for creating my journal was Mary Engelbrecht's ME book.  of course for years now the initials ME mean Jesus in the Word of God.  feel its ME time for now in my life.

The View

 during my climb to the top of the lighthouse I took pics along the way.  the view was breath taking whether through a small window

or tiny doorway before walking out onto the wraparound walk. my view was definitely expanded once I was outside - I could see for miles and miles, waterways, bridges, the island across the way. 

it made me ponder and reflect on my life's view.  was it too narrow? was it only tunnel vision?  expanding my view is where I am headed. to the top, to the top I must go.

I had to laugh when I saw this but it was there for a very important reason - so you would not bump your head on the bulkhead - I think that's what its called?
they recently opened the inside of the lighthouse and climbing to the top was a wonderful, unexpected surprise.  how many steps did he say?
