My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

A Little Bird Told Me.....

Are these not beautiful? Thinking today of the ultimate sacrifice these bring to mind.

I do not cast my pearls before swine.

Not an olive branch but a fir tree to remind us of the season and the Sacrifice.

Home—no matter how small and humble it is— is my celestial place on earth, free from the storms of life.

The crown of thorns Someone once wore for me. My glass is always full!

Someday will life be a peppermint stick and cherries?

And sing your sweet little song of grace.

So little snowbird take me with you when you go
To that land of gentle breezes
where the peaceful waters flow...
