1. Every so often, things you think are gone forever are really just misplaced. My husband had recorded some beautiful hymns with his acoustic guitar. Several years ago, our computer crashed and the music was gone. Just last week, he found copies of the songs that he had placed on his work server! I am so grateful! You can hear some of the songs here.
2. Sometimes you fix a thing – other times you just have to get a new one. We replaced our 23 year old Craigslist dryer this month. We just couldn’t keep it running anymore! Because the new machine dries so efficiently, I fully expect to see a reduction in my utility bill. Additionally, my waiting time for the clothes to dry has decreased.
3. Etsy stores are fun! My husband was gracious enough to set up an Etsy store for some of my photos. We will be adding note cards and other things to it as time goes on. The photo above is a variation of an original I took. Ed applied a watercolor effect to it in a photo editing program. We thought it looked pretty neat! It’s available as an 8×10 print – but we can also do other sizes if you’d like.
4.Amazon carries flour sacks towels. My mind was wandering the other day and I started thinking about drying dishes at my grandma’s house. She used white flour sacks and I remember thinking that they were the neatest things ever. I looked them up on Amazon and sure enough, you could still buy this type of kitchen towel. I can’t wait to wash these and start using them. (affiliate link)
5. Apparently, I have a life verse. I guess it should have occurred to me earlier, but it wasn’t until I was being interviewed by my husband, Ed, on the video for our website that I fully realized it. Philippians 4:8 is the verse that I try to model my life after. You can read the transcript of the video here.
What about you? Do you have a life verse? And let me know what you learned in February!
