About Facing Glory

I am learning that it takes time to see God's glory. It is always there, but when I write I tend to look for it more. And so I write this blog. It's simple, thoughtful and a glimpse of the journey I'm on. I enjoy hearing your ideas, so comment freely.
Love, Lindsay

Today

Thomas Moore : To live ordinary life artfully is to have this sensibility about the things in daily life, to live more intuitively and to be willing to surrender a measure of our rationality and control in return for gifts of the soul.

“One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.” Anonymous

The everyday can be quite humdrum or quite lovely. I decided to look for the lovely today.

This is beautiful because it once seemed impossible, but somehow my hands and my mind have learned to cooperate in such a way that this celtic bag is coming together.

The beauty here lies in the resourcefulness of my Grandma Becky which enabled me to create a work of art. You see Grandma Becky saved every button she found. Plastic buttons last much longer than cotton fabric, so she passed on a lovely collection to me.

My Grandma Becky also had lovely taste in what are now known as vintage pillow cases.

Grandmommie Berry worked a fine quilt. There was something special about moving home and finding such a treasure in the closet to adorn my bed. It makes a home just a bit cozier to have tangible reminders of a faithful heritage.

    good reminders... not just of visually lovely things, but internally lovely things.

    You're quite lovely yourself.

    And the angles and ways you photograph... nice :)

    P.S.-- how is your scrapbook coming along. I'd love to see it.

    P.P.S.-- Buttons are my fav top
