Searching for...

Friday, 28 February 2014


Deb at Rev Gals Blog says she has been
"busy writing “professional” papers, where it is required that staid, measured prose be properly footnoted, annotated and credited. I am tired of living there!"
I so remember that part of my own journey [and feeling the same response!]
However, her "creative brain is somewhere in the land of strange to illogical."
She invites us to join in her creative flight of thought and tell :
1. A colour that you enjoy (and where you find it)
A particular periwinkle shade I adore !

Found in benjamin moore paints once upon a time.
 {I used it liberally in our PEI home and rejoiced every day I lived in it !!}
Grateful forever for God creating in colour!
I Love the impact colour has on us and revel in having choices . . .
2. A food or drink you have discovered recently that is just da bomb!
just click and the recipe is yours too !
3. A simile for tiredness

tired as my sweet wee grandson after a busy afternoon 
[probably my son and DIL too!]
4. A random picture from your phone, camera or [computer for me]

beauty in the reminder . . .
5. Your least favourite bill: car mechanic, dentist or plumber?
Dentist.  It's like paying for pain !
BONUS: If you are going to have a Lenten practice or discipline, what is it? 
If you have a book or on-line resource, be sure to share it!

Lenten practice?  Seriously considering removing myself to the desert !
Would be a great idea to leave the icy blasts and heaps of snow behind. . . 
Time to focus on a Lenten journey me thinks !
Following through on my Word for 2014 being 'intentional',
I've begun PILGRIM PRINCIPLES by Lacy Clark Ellman,
a 7 week 'journey with intention in everyday life' as the byline reads
Great so far.  I'll be well into it for the 6 weeks of Lent beginning next week.

another I found appealing
Paula Huston's

and NT Wright's  LENT for Everyone
[Matthew- year A]

Two 3 free Lent resources to download -
Mustard Seed Associates offer 40+ Ideas for Lent 
Michelle DeRusha's Beneath The Tree of Life
and Ann Voskamp offers Trail to the Tree

Several bookmarks now on my list to go peruse later. There's lots of good stuff in your post. I LOVE that color of periwinkle. It's so cheerful. Can't wait for flower season!

The first thing I thought when I looked at question #5 was "whichever is the biggest!" Have a good weekend!

It is so much fun to respond to prompts. Enjoyed your responses very much.

My Lenten practice is our combined churches' weekly Soup and Devotional. Can't wait!

Lovely photos. I especially like the starfish and sea glass one. The colors are so soft.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the tulips.

goodness this was a chock full post !
Have just eaten and that crock pot dinner has me drooling :) What a precious bundle of joy, how is it such a tiny baby can wipe out several adults in just a few hours? :))

Lyli said...

What a fun meme post! It was lovely to visit your blog today through The Weekend Brew blog. That recipe looks yummy. :)

Tanya @ Moms Small Victories said...

I love the pictures and moments you chose for your inspiration. Your grandson is adorable and I am sure you treasure him. The recipe looks fantastic too, can't believe that was in a crockpot!

Thanks for linking up with my Small Victories Sunday linky and hope you will link up 3 more posts next week!
