God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

This is my mom's wood pile I love the texture of it and deided it would make a good shot since it's turning cold and we are supposed to have snow tonight.

I really like the concept and the picture is nice too. I agree with the above comment about the AV. And, btw, I'm glad to see your photos here on your blog too. I didn't answer your Q yesterday on the board, but I too don't want to get another account just to leave feedback. I'm glad I can do it for you here. Hopefully, as I get better, I'll be able to leave better CC for you too.
