About a week and a half ago, I stumbled upon a beautiful gift that has brought such enrichment to my soul - - perhaps you are familiar with it ... A Holy Experience. What I didn't realize when I stumbled upon Ann's blog is that she is the author of a book that has caught my eye soooooo many times in the store, my online book clubs, and onto my wish list. Well, after reading through a myriad of posts and soaking up the enchanting photography of her blog, I felt "joy" tickle at my heart, warmth spread to my cheeks, dampness in the creases of my eyes and a deep smile on my face. Her words are gifts ... they dance and intertwine and leave you breathless ... and truly, my soul thanked me.
My book arrived yesterday.
I haven't cracked the cover yet, but already, I feel such rebirth - freshened-up, per se ... and just in time, too, glass and canvas is calling quite feverishly for attention. Deadlines approaching, you know.
So ... if you haven't stopped by Ann's to pay a visit - - you really must. Soul-gratifying inspiration is merely a click away.
For tomorrow, I have been working on a special project that I encourage you to try. Stop by then to see :)
Joy is the echo of God's life in us.
