Some say there is no God.

Some say there are many Gods.

Some say there is a Higher Power.

Some say there is only energy that recycles.

Some say God is vengeful and punative.

Some say God is loving and kind.

Some say God answers prayer.

Some say we’re alone.

What do you say?

It may not be a big deal to you, and that’s okay, but it is to me. I think it’s kind of neat. From the first day of this blog (over two years ago), to March of this year, there were 15,000 recorded visits.

.

Now, only a few months later, the counter has rolled past 30,000. That’s neat to me. I’m very happy that you’ve come to visit. I hope you will explore the site, find a post you like, and leave a comment about how that post relates to your life and your experience.

Thanks for stopping by!

My family is all together this week. Everyone is in town. We’re all spending hours and hours together.

.

Last night, I slept at my parents’ house. This morning, I awoke to the sound of the front door slamming, and I pulled myself up to the window to look out. I saw my young nephew going out to retrieve the morning paper. Moments later, he was seated on the floor in the family room with the paper opened to the weather page. (One of his current interests is meteorology). I took a picture of him. He smiled. I went back to bed and back to sleep.

.

A little later, I woke up when he entered the room where I was sleeping. He came over to the bed and placed a necklace around my neck. It was one he’d just made. It was made of paperclips connected end-to-end in a circle. In the front, there was a paper clip hanging down. Connected to the dangling clip was a small, paper heart with my name written on it in pencil.

.

I wore it all day. I have it on still. It’s 11:55 pm.

Aw! What a wonderful reunion!

.

If you doubt, read about “Christian the Lion” on Snopes.

Here are two more videos about Christian the Lion in London and At World’s End. Oh, the joy of reunion and a big hug from an old friend!

I bought this book yesterday at my local stained glass supply shop. They actually have a zillion little ‘gifts’ and decorations, but that’s not what interests me. My money usually goes for the colored glass. Yesterday, I bought a book, The Kaleidoscope Book.

.

I’d like to try out a few of the ideas in the book. I love wood, too, so I’d especially like to make a kaleidoscope with a wooden exterior. And, there’s a neat one for kids that’s on a platform (it’s BIG!). You make the mirror-tube out of PVC pipe (and, decorate it, of course). The turning objects are on a lazy-Susan (the type you’d use for spices or other small items in a kitchen cabinet). And, there’s a scope of stained glass that’s on legs and points straight down (you just turn a ball of blown glass at the end of it).

.

One safety issue they mention at the end of the book is very important! This author says you absolutely MUST use plexiglass for the clear cover on the end where you put your eyes. I knew you had to cover it, in order to keep it dust-free inside and to avoid eye injury. But, he says you must use plastic for the clear piece where the eyes are, because sometimes people drop scopes and don’t tell anyone. That could result in a devastating eye injury if the next person holds it up to his or her eye and small fragments of glass fall out and onto the surface of the eye. Point taken!!! I will soon be looking for a source for plexiglass and a safe and effective method for cutting it. (I’m glad I’m still at the beginning of my kaleidoscope-making and have not let the ones with glass eye-covers out of my sight. At least, I know who to call to recall the one I gave as a gift, so I can change it to the safer design.)
