Rosie B had an element created specially for her by finding an error at - and she just could'nt keep it to herself, bless her heart. I used my rose picture in it, as it was so fitting for her name. I have a VERY dear friend named Rose, and an Aunt...I guess I'm planted amidst the Roses...

*Jean* You left a message as well, saying the links did not work for you. I will make a custom element for you (and you can share if you like too) but I need you to send me your email address ( - Please tell me what kind of a browser you are using??? This is important information for us to know.

Storm over Osoyoos Lake

We had a most amazing storm pass over last night! We were so busy on our computers and heard fierce rain hitting the house and ran to the window to be greeted by a stunning rainbow!

When the storm hit, I was reminded of a song that I love. I think of it as an honest song, because it points out that God does not promise we will never go through rough times, but He does promise He's there for us in those times and we are to trust Him. What do you think of this song?

Sometimes He Calms The Storm


All who sail the sea of faith
Find out before too long
How quickly blue skies can grow dark
And gentle winds grow strong
Suddenly fear is like white water
Pounding on the soul
Still we sail on knowing
That our Lord is in control

Sometimes He calms the storm
With a whispered peace be still
He can settle any sea
But it doesn't mean He will
Sometimes He holds us close
And lets the wind and waves go wild
Sometimes He calms the storm
And other times He calms His child

He has a reason for each trial
That we pass through in life
And though we're shaken
We cannot be pulled apart from Christ
No matter how the driving rain beats down
On those who hold to faith
A heart of trust will always
Be a quiet peaceful place

And of course, afterwards, there is always this beautiful reminder of His Promise:

I simply HAD to take time out to scrapbook my little friend Zach. He's adorable, and it was excruciating to watch him eat only the colored beads and icing off this donut without eating any of the donut itself!

Keep the Candle - Not Burning!

If you have burnt an especially nicely scented pillar candle and there is quite a bit of wax left, cut it into good sized chunks using a large knife. Tuck the candle bits into your drawers, linen cupboards and even in the toes of stored shoes!
