Time Flies

my goodness. I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted. I've seen some great quilts in that time, went on a great retreat, and have tons of inspiration. Problem is not enough time to do everything I want. Boy, I really wish I could put myself into warp speed and not tire out. My mom and I are getting ready to be vendors at the Abilene Quilt Show in 2 weeks. We have SO much to do in that amount of time but I want to take time and smell the roses too. Speaking of roses, look at the size of these roses at my mother's house.

Life flies by and people are gone before you know it. Always let the ones you care about and love know how much they mean to you. We recently lost a good friend. He was only 38 years old and left a young family who dearly loved him. This man lived life to the fullest and loved the Lord with all his heart. 2 hours before he passed, I happened to be going to town. A storm had moved through and there was the largest fullest rainbow that I have ever seen in my life. That is saying alot since I have lived in Hawaii and saw rainbows almost daily. As soon as I saw it, the Lord's words popped into my head: "I will never leave you or foresake you." Thank you Lord for sending us beautiful reminders of your love.
