"No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars,
or sailed to an unchartered land,
or opened a new heaven to the human spirit."
My mother's silver collectibles have become gray and dull!
But I'm the retiree!! I'm ready to shine in this year of 2016
This ~ I shall do. I shall be an optimist
I shall open my eyes unto God's
great, splendid and multiplied "heavenly moments"...
as he has afforded a new heaven to the human spirit.
I shall seek his will and his face in daily prayer!
I will live in faith and optimism! Not hurriedly....but in beauty. In grace. In love. And in beauty.
I ran across a magazine called Victorian Tea Time..... and ahhhh.... the lovely tea rooms in the USA and abroad. Oh to sit and reflect and to be serene in drinking a cuppa tea or coffee.
I've begun to polish my silver..... it's quite OCD to get a beautiful shine.
My 15-month old grandson was in ICU pediatric care in December 2015...
I'm prayerful for a good, healthy life for this little rascal!!!
All of my grandchildren are MY NEW HEAVEN.... a joy to my spirit.
I'd give my life in a second for my children and grands and the greats that will come!
I hope blogging friends ~ tea buddies ~ and quilting friends ~
will indeed find new bits of heaven in 2016!
