To Please You...

I am feeling better today... my breathing has improved a lot. It is another beautiful day in northern Michigan... the trees are starting to bud out... the grass has greened up... in fact it needs cutting.

I have been trying to get some things done for NOFL... not feeling very creative... high on ideas... low on ambition. Here is a note book I made for a birthday gift... the cover is like bark with the grain, but of course you can't see that in the picture... so what do you think... would you like it as a gift????

I have a poem/song I want to share today:

"To Please You"
Before I come into Your presence
Before I enter in and worship You
Soften my heart
Open my eyes
To the things I need to see

To the things You have for me

To the things that will only please You, Lord

How I want to please You, Lord
To please You, Lord
I want to please You, Lord
And do only what You would have me do today.
-Shirley Bunnell

Thanks for stopping... with a grateFUL HEART, carin

Love you

Hi Friend,
Good to hear you're feeling better. I'm still fighting, but each day is better than the other.

Hope to see you soon.
