My Gina is getting through the week. It has been a very hard time, but she is holding up. I'm so very proud of her. I would like you to pray for her and the family as the next two days will be especially difficult. Today is the viewing and tomorrow the funeral. I'm hoping you will take a moment out of your day to leave an encouraging comment at her blog - and lift her in prayer. Also, keep your ears and eyes open, the Gina's Garden fund raising kit will be up any time at Scrapbook Bytes! (It's beaaaauuuutiful!)

Job 15:16

But my mouth would encourage you;
comfort from my lips would bring you relief.

Two messages - Joy - Miles got a gmail invitation from another friend, but THANK YOU for offering. Scrapcat - I wanted to send you a return email, however I don't have an email addy for you! I am so glad you found my blog again.

Remember how last week I confessed to you my embarassing moment - finding I had walked around town with a lenghth of toilet paper hanging out of my shorts? Well, I think I saw a man yesterday who felt even worse than I did on the humiliation scale. It was at our bank. I noticed as I walked in, an older man stooped and scooping...and swiping and wiping... and even had I not noticed him, I then SMELLED him. Poor fella - it so happened prior to my arrival he had brought in his dog, and the dog had diahreah right there inside the bank. After I stopped gagging I felt just terrible for him. Can you imagine? Good thing they did not have carpet...

Speaking of smell - I found a very interesting article this morning that I would like to share with you. It is about a VAMPIRE PLANT that SNIFFS OUTS ITS PREY. Yep, you heard me right. Slip on over HERE to read all about it.

Glitter Gourds

Of course I found this in an old back-issue of Martha Stewart (which could be a hint in itself - check out back issues for the season you are in) Take small pumpkins, or squash, and, with a paintbrush, spread white glue over the surface. Place the pumpkin on a paper plate or newspaper to catch the excess glitter. Sprinkle glitter (you can even use combinations of colour) over glue, covering completely. Let dry one hour then shake off the excess glitter. Coat stem with brown acrylic paint; let dry.

    I was going to leave a comment on Gina's blog but she's gotten so many of them already so please leave her know I've got her family in my prayer's.
    I know from losing my husband in a freak fall at the firehouse that everyone has to greieve in their own way and as for me it's been 5 years now but I still take it one day at a time and that as in Life my husband did in death with the Gift of Life.
