Thank you everyone!

On December 10th I started a contest to see who could come up with a snappy, new title for my blog. A name that was fun, and would give my blog a little more pizazz. The winner is….. Ruth Webb. Her entry was “From Dawn ’til Dusk” . I liked the play on my name.

So, as I promised she will be receiving a thank you gift from me for her help in renaming my blog. I will be putting up my new blog title soon.

I’ll be having more contests in the future. This was fun! Thank you to everyone that participated.

What A Wonderful World

Earth and North America from Space

How many times do we stop in our busy lives…really stop…and enjoy the world that God has created? HIS handiwork is a beautiful thing. Each season brings beauty of its own. I am constantly amazed at the beauty of trillions of sparkling stars in the onyx night sky. The sight of falling snow quietly blanketing the world, reminding me to slow down. The green of springtime, the color burst of Fall. Rainy days, and hot sticky nights.

It truly is a beautiful world.


Louis Armstrong knew something about beauty.


(George Weiss / Bob Thiele)

 I see trees of green, red roses too
 I see them bloom for me and you
 And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

 I see skies of blue and clouds of white
 The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
 And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

 The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
 Are also on the faces of people going by
 I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' "How do you do?"
 They're really saying "I love you"

 I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
 They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
 And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
 Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

 Oh yeah
