Have a seat!

... in this beautiful chair... 

Elizabeth upholstered it!  
(Well, first she bought the chair at a garage sale (I think). She also painted it.)

And here is a pillow she made ...

Did you notice the H for Huffman?!!
(Elizabeth does things I've never ventured to try, or tried to venture.)

 Here is an herb garden she and her kids planted....

 They also have a garden out back by the back fence.  (I'll try and get a picture of that when their watermelons are big.)
(I've never had my own herb or vegetable garden - though my parents did, but I can't take credit.)
Here's a picture of Anna, Caroline and Andrew with Teresa, their pet turtle that they saved from a busy road.

(Andrew is holding a minnow that Teresa will soon eat.)

And no, I've never had a pet turtle that I saved.

Ah, but I HAVE saved dogs from the animal shelter. 
One is this one....
 Precious boy.

By the way I have a new poll up (upper right) that is about naming a sweet animal shelter kitten.
(Thanks for voting.)

In closing, here is a quote about God that I REALLY like ...
“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”
~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

Have a great day.
