All sorts of sorts...

I know I have not been very good about posting lately... I still am feeling out of sorts... more about that later. I wanted to share a couple pics with you... the first is our small pond just off our patio behind our house... I just love the tranquility of the moving water... I am so grateFUL my hubby had the vision to put in this pond... he is the best! I had to post a pic of this plant that is taking over... it is called "Cat Mint"... we just planted it last year & this year it is so beautiful & the big bubble bees love it.

Next here is a little card (4x4) I tried using the Raspberry Tart... love that paper! I think it turned out pretty good... what do you think?
Now for the out of sorts thing... I am having trouble getting into the rhythm of things... STILL! I don't know why... I usually write in my journal at least a few times a week & I have been making every excuse not to... I love writing, but for some reason I am having a hard time. One thing I do know... for sure is God is always there for me... He is here in the middle of my unclear thoughts... even when I am feeling so discombobulated He is always there... He always knows the way... He always knows the answer... even when I am not sure of the question...
I thank-You, God -- You were... You are... You will always be.
"Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand." Psalm 73:23
thanks for stopping... with a grateFUL HEART, carin

First, let me start by saying your water pond and garden are soooo gorgeous, I luv it.

Secondly, thnak you for visting my blog and commenting, very sweet. A CAS card is a card that is "clean and simple" they are not easy for me because I like lots of embellies. But, I have to say I love the way they look. On Mondays over at SCS they have a CAS challenge. You can go over to SCS and click on Monday's Clean and Simple challenge and it will list all of the challenges. I hope this helps and have a wonderful day!
enjoy *~*

Hey Sweets,
The flower is gorgeous! Are you sure that a word, it would be a good one for Scrabble.
Sorry I did not get up to the office today. We have Michael up until Sunday, so I was just ready to get back home with him after cleaning.
We did not make it to Jay & Vonnie's either. It was just short notice, and with Michael up, did not feel like going to store and figure out what to bring for a dish.
That sounds pretty lazy............oh well.
The card is beautiful, as all of the projects that you do are.
Let's plan on going out for lunch for your birthday, we haven't had a lot of time together for a while. Maybe Deb and Sharon will be able to go too.
I will see you on Sunday morning.
Love Ya, Barb
