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

Played a little this weekend.  The first is from the new Sweet Rainbow Magnolia's I tried to give it a distressed feel can't decide if I managed or not.

I love the way it colored up but not happy with the final outcome.  Oh well I guess we never like our own work.  the image is a Sarah Kay  Love her images they remind me of the old Hobby Hollies from the 70's.

Thanks for looking.

God Bless,
