Do you ever think about the choices you make in your life... I think so many times I just move through life on "auto-pilot" never really paying close attention to my choices. I am not talking about major choices but mostly little everyday choices. Right now our pastor is doing a series of messages on choices, called "Multiple Choice - every choice leads somewhere." It has made me think about my choices... and too since I went back to Weight Watchers last week... that is all about choices. BTW - today was weigh-in day... drum roll please... I lost 3.2 pounds! That is the payoff for making wise food choices & walking for exercise. Now if I can just keep the momentum.

I went on a little overnight trip with a couple friends to visit my family in the Thumb & shopping at IKEA near Detroit. We had so much fun... I don't know if I have ever laughed so much. It made me see how much God has blessed me with such great friends. I think about the choice Luke & I made to follow God's leading & move to the Cadillac area... it brings me to tears (I know a real surprise!) to think that if we hadn't made that choice then I would never have been blessed to know these great women I am privileged to call my friends & sisters.

"Be devoted to one another in brotherly (sisterly) love; give preference to one another in honor." Romans 12:10
Now, about this card... it is a "wiper card"... I found the directions on SCS... the joke is it only took me 6 hours to complete this card. It was a very busy, very distracting paper-craft day at my friends, so I really wasn't working none stop for 6 hours on it!

When you pull the 2 sides the "wiper" part comes up... I thought it was kind of cool & I really like the colors... what do you think?

Watching & waiting for my hubby to get home from his Canadian fishing trip... I really missed him!

with a grateFUL HEART, carin
